XVI. It being the primary intent of this League and Amity, that each Confederate, their people and subjects, might enjoy such freedom of Navigation and Commerce, as is described in the foregoing Articles, within the Baltic, Sound, Northern, Western, and British Seas, Mediterranean, and Channel, and other the seas in Europe; therefore all sincere endeavour shall be used on both sides, by common advice, aid, and assistance, that the aforesaid mutual liberty of Navigation and Commerce be established, promoted, and (as occasion is) defended against all the disturbers thereof, who shall go about to interrupt, prohibit, hinder, or restrain and limit the same to their own will and pleasure, in prejudice of the said Confederates: and either Part shall, with all willingness and readiness promote the good, and prevent the hurt of each other, saving the Treaties which either Nation hath made with other Kingdoms, commonwealths, and nations; but neither Confederate shall hereafter make any league or agreement in prejudice of this present, with any other people or nation, without the privity and consent of the other; or if any such agreement be hereafter made, the same shall be reputed null and void, and give place to this present Treaty.

XVII. Whatever is agreed on in the foregoing Articles, shall be in force and virtue from this present time, and be truly observed on both sides by all such as are within each other's allegiance. And for the further confirmation thereof, shall be subscribed, signed, and ratified, as well by His Majesty of Great Britain, as by His Majesty of Sweden, under their hand-writing and seals, within six months next ensuing the date of these presents.
