[Letter Text: Notes]
Right honorable my very good Lady Considering
the deuty I owe vnto my Lorde and your hono-
rable selfe I thought it not my parte to lette
passe any seruice, the omission wherof might turne
either to your honors preiudice or withdrawe
any proffite that may bee dewe Soe it is I
am certainly lette to vnderstande that one
Wiliam Vaughan of Llaurethall standeth outlawed
after iudgement at the suite of one Mr Ambrose
griffith by reason of which outlawery the
proffits of his lands and all his goods ar
forfeted vnto my Lord his land and goods lyinge
within your manor of Irchenfilde his stocke
being worthe 500 li. And yet of this your
Ladyship is like to bee defrauded if your honor
doe not wright vnto your officers to haue
especiall care therof. and they will the
rather perfourme their deuties therin when
they shall vnderstand that my Lorde
^and^ your Ladyship ar acquancted with the matter
and doe geue directions for the honest
exequution of the same.

I proceeded noe further with Cole consi-
dering I receiued noe further directions
from your Ladyship vppon your receipt of
my laste leter supposing your honor doth
mislike of his asseurance Thus
being bould to trouble your Ladyship
rather choosing to doe soe then to omitte
any parte of my dewty in doing seruice
to your honors to whome after my ^own^ [deletion]...
I reste most bounden and allwais redy t...
bee commaunded to the vttermost of my
poore powre
