Good mr ffletcher, here is a poore tennant of myne the berer
herof whoe not longe since had some gooddes taken from him
by a bad fellowe, whoe as hee enformeth me was Executed now
lattely in your Cittie for other offence, and as my tennant
enformeth me he is able to prooue by good wittnes that vppon
his Execution he did confesse that this poore mans gooddes were
to be had, from one Iesper Gillam, and one Couldocke, whoe
as I heere are two of your officers of your towne. I would
therfore entreate that fauoure at your hand handes as to
steedde this poore man so much for my sake as to Examine the
matter, so that this poore man maye haue his gooddes againe
if it be possible: And in so doinge I will surely think my
self greatly beholdinge to you. Thus with my hartiest
comendacons to your selfe I end Hooton this xxxth of
December 1597

Your verie louinge frend
Rowland Stanley
