Good Mr Fletcher, here is a poor tenant of mine the bearer
hereof who not long since had some goods taken from him
by a bad fellow, who as he informeth me was Executed now
lately in your City for other offence, and as my tenant
informeth me he is able to prove by good witness that upon
his Execution he did confess that this poor man's goods were
to be had, from one Jasper Gillam, and one Couldocke, who
as I hear are two of your officers of your town. I would
therefore entreat that favor at your hand hands as to
steady this poor man so much for my sake as to Examine the
matter, so that this poor man may have his goods again
if it be possible: And in so doing I will surely think myself
greatly beholding to you. Thus with my hardiest
commendations to yourself I end Hooton this 30th of
December 1597

Your very loving friend
Rowland Stanley
