Sir Carew Reynell to Sir Robert Cecil.
[1601? before March 12,] Being a prisoner and my horses seized upon I do most humbly entreat your honour with the rest that if anybody have accused me as privy or an actor in these rebellious actions that I may be examined and brought face to face to answer the same for the better proof of my innocency. Although I did love my Lord of Essex in his dutiful and honest courses yet did I ever prefer my duty and allegiance unto her Majesty before my love to any person whosoever.— Undated.

p. (205. 99.)
Thomas, Lord Burghley to Sir Robert Cecil.
[1600–1, March ?] I see all things are "proloigned" away, and therefore I thought to speak in time. I am desirous to have a couple of horses that were my Lord of Southampton's; the one a bay horse and the other a black mare. I pray you let me have a warrant from you and from the Lord Admiral for the seizing of them. Your brother.

Note by Cecil that the petitioner must resort to Mr. Secretary Herbert. ½ p. (1793.)
