Please readeth the following
I have painted a portrait in you liking, because I would like you to read my "application."
Your majesty, I would prefer leaving in 1567, but any year you need me to be at is fine. Sir, I have originated from Sweden, but I do live here, in Spain. I would love to ask you if you could fund my expedition to North America, because I know that you need resources like gold. While I will look for this, I will also trade for tobacco, coal, and silver, because these can also make god money for you and your kingdom. I will gladly travel to California on behalf of you and Spain. I will no doubt encounter selfish English men that are after gold, but when I do, it's talk or kill. I will face disease of my crew members, but I have prepared for that as well. I got Tylenol.
P.S. I got you fish.
This is a sign that the English have, so I do not have much competition.
