Latin. Estado, 839.
630. Earl of Angus and Lords Semple and Herys to Philip II.
The going of James Gordon being doubtful, they are sending Father John Cecil, and in default of him, or to aid him, Hugo Barclay, a worthy gentleman of noble birth and exemplary piety, who has suffered greatly for the Catholic faith, and is exceedingly well informed of affairs, particularly of the parts of the country on the coast. They beg for full credence for the envoys ; and earnestly beseech prompt aid in their just cause.—Scotland. Kalends of November, 1594. Signed Angus, Semple, Herys.
