Sr having received Commandment from my Lord Treasurer and Mr Chancellor of
The Exchequer for the Calling in of all such as are anyway indebted to her Majesty
within my Circuit to the end that her Highness may be satisfied of such money
as shall be found to be due by them unto her I thought good to acquaint
you therewith that there being (as you know) a reckoning to be yielded by you
to her Majesty for money received of Mr Ensor for the Iron Works at Bromley
you would either come or send to her Highness Audit appointed to be kept at
Wolverhampton the 28th of October next coming. for the finishing of
your Account touching the same; Whereof I heartily pray you to be very
Careful: Mr Broughton hath oftentimes promised to have come home to
me at London to have ended your said Account; But hath failed therein
which maketh me the rather at this time to put you in mind thereof
hoping that you will not fail at The audit to finish the same, in the meantime
with my very hearty Commendations I take my Leave, and Commit
you to the Lord this third of July. 1592.//.
Your very Loving friend
Alexander King: Auditor
