Right worshipfull and my very much respected freind: I haue caused your
sonne to write out the note of this quarters expences which arise
to the greater summe, because he was entred in the daunceinge schoole.
as he enformes me by your appoyntment, but had I not had good
experience of his ingenuous nature, I would not haue giuen way
vnto it, vppon soe weak warrant as his word, vnles I had understood
your worships mind by a letter: not that I mislik the thinge, which is an exercise
well beseeminge a gentleman and noe hindrance to his study, but I thinke
it vnfit for a Tutor to lay out any thinge extraordinary, for his pupill
without he be fully secured that it standes with his likeinge to whom he is
to giue vp the accounts of all expences. younge mens wills and wordes
are not alwayes Tutors warrants, neither would I haue easely
giuen way vnto this but that I knew who I trusted, for to speak noe
more of him than I doe with ioy dayly behold hn him. he is one
that deserues my commendatory letters both for his studious and virtuous
behauiour, and be you assured that I will doe my best endeauour to hasten
him forward in those well begunne courses: Thus not forgettinge my
best respect and thankfulnes to your much respected wife, and my loue
to your sonnes in hast I tak my leaue

Oxoniensis this 27 of March
Your worships in all freindly
Yeldard Aluey
