in many places. therefore I would gladly my man would bring
my horses the week after Trinity Sunday. the term is in effect
cut off as by the proclamation herein enclosed may appear, for the
privy seal money of Staffordshire on Monday last there was no order
but Mr Sugdon told me that he thought order would taken
for payment of such as Lent in May. when order is taken I shall
know. and if I had dispatched with Mr Auditor I would wish
myself my partner Aunt Lettice & Mall in the country, and thus
(not having else) until the next messenger with hearty commendations
and duties remembered from everybody here. I Commit you & yours
to the tuition of the Almighty this 30th of May 1593
Your Richard Broughton
