The Bornean king or rajah thought his revenge had gone far enough in driving the English from their factory:  And, finding his revenue considerably diminished by the loss of trade with the English, he sent notice to such of them as traded to Johor, and other places in the neighbourhood of Borneo, that he would still admit them to trade in his dominions on the old footing, but would never allow them or any other nation to erect forts in his territories.  Several English vessels have been there since to load pepper, and were civilly treated.  The Dutch also sent a ship there from Batavia in the year 1712; but the natives refused to have any dealings with them.
