To my very good daughter

[Letter Text: Notes]
my owne good daughtar; some make doubte; that your
Lordes greate fauor towards s.r Iohn Berrone wyll
be frende samone that murdered my cosin Leake more
then he deserneth; I know my good sonne to be
so honorable that he wyll not frende so wecked
a matter. I assure my selfe that you both would
haue righte preuayll, and your cosins bloud so foulle
spylte requeareth your reasonable assistance to
brenge the murderar to hys tryall; therfore I
pray you good sweete harte to moue my honorable
good sonne that yf he please not to further the
brenging of samone to hys dewe Iudgmente as
the extremetye of hys facte shall geue cause
vpon the euedence; yet at the Leaste that he
wyll nowayes ether hendar that or other ways
countenance or befrende s.r Iohn Berrone or
hys followars therin; so praying god to blesse
you my deare sweete harte, my honorable good
sonne and all yours I cease at hardwecke
thys xviijth of february./

your Loueing mother./
