The British Library has graciously contributed the above images to Shakespeare Documented under a Creative Commons Public Domain Mark.

Copyright status of the manuscript and unpublished Materials: The 1988 Copyright, Designs and Patents Act (as amended) states that unpublished literary and artistic works remain in copyright in the UK until at least 31 December 2039. Therefore important parts of the library’s collection remain in copyright, including very old manuscripts. However for unpublished material created many centuries ago and in the public domain in most other countries, the Library believes this material to be very unlikely to offend anyone. As an institution whose role it is to support access to knowledge, we have therefore taken the decision to release certain digitised images technically still in copyright in the UK under the Public Domain Mark.

Sir I receaued your letter ye 8th of October, which
by the date you gaue him, seemed to be long a coming
yet was it neuer the lesse wellcome, coming from
your selfe, and bringing so good news. I would I knewe
howe to expresse sufficientlye to my Aunt, the Joye I hadde
to heare her desyre accomplished, for I remembre, to haue
heard her often wish for an other daughter. I haue
beene so wearyed with traueling this sommer, yat synce my
comming to this towne I haue beene sicke, but (I thanke
god) am now well agayne; and my Lo: Norryes hath
taken the reuersion of my sicknesse which (I feare me) will
not  Leaue him so soone; wee came out of Spayne together
with an intention to haue gone into ye Lowe Countryes
but  these accidents of sicknesse, haue hyndred vs so long
yat the tyme of the yeare is now past, and the armyes
goe into Garison: There are verye lyke to be warres
in this countrye forth with, for the King is in the field
with a verye galant Armye, and hath marched aboue a
100 -- and 60 miles, so that we daylye looke for somme
exployte; I thanke you, for puttting me in mynd to
write to my Lo: Cheefe Iustice, I haue written to
him twice allreadye, once from this place, agayne out of
Spayne, but I perceaue he hath not receaued any, I haue
written vnto him now agayne, which I hope he will receaue.
I am gladde to heare you are so well hawked, I shall
manye tymes this winter, in a delicious morning wish
my selfe with you on the top of Burtrig; and to eate
a coke and bacon. I pray yf you  hawke at Sydberye
this wihter to remembre me to Sir Thomas Prediox, and Mrs
More; Thus leauing you in the myddest of your sportes,
(which in respect of those which this countrye allowes, seeme rather
fitt for Ladyes then, for Caualliers: wee ffor to passe the winters

[Image 2: fol. 105v]

bitter cold, doe with a Jauelin chasse the brisseled bore, and
sometymes, mounted one a fowming Curtol, doe rend the woods
to hounde the furious bulle. and sometymes for to haue more
gentle sport doe hunt the fearfull Roe, these did I offten see
the Last winter, and now the season commeth in agayne; ye
danger in these sports makes them seeme good, men seeme in them
as actors in a Tragedye, and my thinkes I could play
Shackesbere in relating; Sir I hadde leaft you in your sports
a greate whyle agone, but this desyre to relate you our tragicke
sports made me forgett when to take my Leaue; yf I knew
how to gossope, I should vse a greate manye gossoping Phrases, (you
may thanke god I cannot) that you be not troubled with delivering
them.) I will onlye commend my best loue to your selfe
and my Aunt, and with out any more ceremonye, take my leaue
allwayes resting
Your Most asssured louing
Nephew.
