February 1606

The Mayor and Aldermen of Hull to the Earl of Salisbury.
[February 4, 1605–6]. They understand that the King is pleased to grant means of relief to their neighbours who have suffered grievous losses because of Danish action, and which they have had to endure for the past seven years. Petitioners again, as they have done before, request Salisbury's assistance in bringing the protracted suit prosecuted by these unfortunate people to a close in a satisfactory manner.—1605.
Signed: seven signatures. Imperfect. Endorsed: "4 Februarie, 1605. Mayor and Aldermen of Hull to my lord." ¾ p. (P. 1989.)
[See H.M.C. Salisbury MSS, Vol. XVIII, p. 253.]
Sir Richard Walsh to the Earl of Salisbury.
[After February, 1605–6]. He was lately Sheriff of Worcestershire, (fn. 1) and the reward for his services in arresting the recent traitors in that shire was referred to Salisbury. He feels that he ought not to urge him to formulate a suit on his behalf, and his friends have advised him to solicit the King for the farm of some assart lands. He asks Salisbury to favour the suit, and to exercise his influence in the determination of the annual value of the assart lands to be awarded him.—Undated.
