January 1602

Wolfgang Wilhelm, Count Palatine of the Rhine, to Queen Elizabeth.
1601–2. Jan. 10. At this beginning of the new year I cannot but pray that all felicity may attend your Majesty. And this I the more desire that I know by past experience that your kindness will never fail towards my family; and you may be sure that I shall never fail in duty and service towards you.— Neubourg. x Januarii. MDCII.
Signed. Latin. Seal. 1½ pp. (134. 21.)
E[lizabeth] Dowager Countess of Shrewsbury to Sir Robert Cecil.
1602. Jan. 18. Upon your commandment and Mr. ViceChamberlain's my son this bearer is come up to attend your pleasure touching Mr. Thomas Garrard's complaint to the Queen of wrongs supposed to be offered him by my son. I doubt not it will fall out that my son hath and yet doth endure wrongs and hath offered none, and I trust he shall have redress. I am sorry to have been so troublesome of late, but hope that mine shall, in justice, be righted as well in this matter of Mr. Gerrard's as in the great wrongs the Earl of Shrewsbury hath offered them—From Hardwick, the 18th of January, 1602.
Signed. ½ p. (84. 75.)
Endorsed:—"1601. January, Countess of Shrewsbury the elder to my Mr."
