My duty remembered: I have receaued your laste letter diliuered by Mr Broune,
whoes chamber hee is content to let mee haue at his departure; but Mr Harris hath mised,
at the endinge of this terme, to helpe mee to a chamber, with in the temple which if hee doe
not parforme, then I will trouble Mr Broune for his chamber: but I thinke it. Whereas
I write before, that Sr Walter Aston woulde let mee haue his chamber, to the tyme
that I weare better prouided, hee hath nowe deceaued me forthe laste tyme I was
with him beinge saterday, hee toulde mee I that hee coulde not goe oute of London:
before the saterday folloinge, and then I shoulde haue his chamber: then I came
to his chamber, vppon the Wendsday followinge, because I would be sure to speake
with him, lest hee shoulde giue mee the slipe, as hee dide hee was gone out of the toune:
nowe if hee had bene minded, to haue let mee had his chamber, hee woulde haue sent mee
woorde, of his departure: for I toulde him wheare I did lye, and prayed him that if
hee went a way before, hee woulde sende mee woorde. As for newes heare is
none wurthy the writinge the kinge is nowe at Royston the Queene and prince
at Whitehall. Soe crauinge your dayly blessinge and my good motheres to whome
my duty I hope yow will remember: not forgettinge my duty to my Grandemother
and commendacons to my sister Anne and ffrancke and to my brother Haruy &
Richarde. I moste humbly take my leaue this xxth of Nouember 1604.

Your dutyfull sonne
Lewis Bagot
