Should he fall overboard, We charge all Eels, Sharks, Dolphins., Whales., Suckers., Crabs., Lobsters., and all other living things of the Sea to abstain from eating, or otherwise maltreating him:

We grant him Free Right and Entry into our Royal Domains, and drcree[sic] that all not hitherto enrolled among our subjects shall treat him with due respects.

Given under our hand at Our Court on the Equator, this Twenty Eighth Day of FEBRUARY, One Thousand and Nine Hundred and Forty Four
