Right worshipful May it please you to understand
That in the Prison of her Majesty's Bench there
are only Two prisoners, of whom I am to inform
your Worships: The one named Thomas Clyfton
priest. The other called Edward Rishton a priest
also. The said Clyfton was committed into my custody
by the Judges of the Court of her Majesty's bench from the
high bar the 12th day of April last past: in case of praemunire
The said Rishton was committed to my charge the
14th of November Last past by the said Judges from the
said Court, and is one of the Company that were condemned
with Campion at the high bar in Michaelmas term last for
treason. Other prisoners in my custody in the
said Bench, are none, for or concerning matter of religion
in anywise. And so I take my leave: from my
