IV. 38. Letter from the Lord Mayor to the Lord Chancellor, stating that, upon receipt of a Petition inclosed, importing a grant by His Majesty to one Wolfen, a stranger, to have the making of twenty denizens, provided none of them were merchants, the Lord Mayor had felt it his duty to remind him that the Citizens had petitioned the Privy Council, and had forwarded a certificate of their just grievance sustained by the sufferance of strangers. The Council had promised that the King should be made acquainted therewith, but they had not yet taken any steps in the matter. He therefore was constrained to appeal to the Lord Chancellor to make stay of the said denizens, till His Majesty should be made acquainted with the City's grievances depending before the Privy Council. (Circa 1616.)
VII. 151. Letter from the King to the Lord Mayor, stating that,

of former times, he had appointed Oliver St. John, (fn. 1) Esq., to peruse
the records of the City and other places thereon, and requiring that
directions might be given that he might be shown such records, and
take copies of such as he should think necessary.
