Censorial hearings

17 March 1602
Entry The Queen's Councillors had sent a letter requesting that Van K be allowed to treat the Lord Chamberlain unhindered, as he had threatened to leave London, and had refused to treat LC unless his freedom from molestation was guaranteed. College replied (to Hunsdon, one of the QC) giving ready and willing assent: on H's description of VK, they will waive their privileges, but ONLY for VK's practice on the Lord Chamberlain.
Pressure applied by College yes
Action taken Van K connived at while he treated the Lord Chamberlain (ONLY).
Verdict case not completed
