Sir my humble duty remembered etc, I did receive very lately a letter, and
and two 2 privy seals from you, delivered by Sir Walter Aston, the one according
to your letter I did deliver to mr Mr Brown, which was my Uncle Kynnersley's,
the other I have in my own keeping: According to your letter, I have been
With Sir Walter Aston, whom I entreated, to help me to a chamber, whose answer
Was he knew of none, that were void, but if I could hear of any, he
would do his best to help me to one. Then I asked him what he
would do with his chamber, when he went in to the country somewhat
unwilling said I should have it if pleased me, unto the time that I were
other ways provided, and no before Monday sennight which is the seven 17th
of this Month he doth not go a way down and till then I am at Thompson's
nevertheless I am in commons and have been this week. As for new
news here is none worthy writing but that my Lord Admiral goeth imba
Ambassador into Spain and Sir Richard Leveson goeth with him. Knights
are made very fast still: My uncle Kynnersley matter betwixt my uncle
Trew and him, I think will either be taken up, or else be referred
to some gentlemen in the country, for Sir Walter Chetwynd, and Mr
Wolseley, follow the matter very close. other news I have none but that
my money goeth away to fast: and so craving your daily blessing
and pardon for my errors, or boldness herein committed I most humbly
take my leave this 10th of November 1604

Your obedient son till death
Lewis Bagot
