Abstract Richard Hakluyt the Younger was the most important promoter of the English colonization of North America in the Elizabethan era, but his interests went far beyond the Western Hemisphere. Heidi Brayman Hackel and Peter C. Mancall provide an introduction and notes to their transcription of Huntington Library Manuscript EL 2360, a fair copy of “notes of information” from a meeting Hakluyt held with the East India Company in 1601. This manuscript, perhaps the earliest version of the surviving notes from that meeting, demonstrates his knowledge of—and interest in—European contacts in the East Indies.
