supply the Room of the said Lord Keeper, at all Times,
during his Sickness, this present Parliament; the Tenor
"Elizabeth, by the Grace of God, Queen of
England, France, and Ireland, Defender of the Faith,
etc. To Our Trusty and Right Well-beloved Sir
Robert Catelyn, Knight, Chief Justice of Our Pleas
before Us to be holden, Greeting.
"Where our Right Trusty and Well - beloved
Counsellor Sir Nicholas Bacon, Knight, Lord Keeper
of Our Great Seal of England, is at this Time so visited with Sickness, that he is not able to travel to the
Upper House of this Our present Parliament, holden
at Westm. nor there to supply the Room and Place in
the said Upper House, among the Lords Spiritual
and Temporal there assembled, as to the Office of the
Lord Chancellor or the Lord Keeper of the Great Seal
of England hath been accustomed; We therefore, minding the same Place and Room to be supplied in all Things
as appertaineth, for and during every Time of his Absence, have named and appointed you, and by these
Presents do constitute, name, appoint, and authorize
you, from Day to Day, and Time to Time, when

any Time or Times, during this present Parliament, to
be absent from his accustomed Place in the said Upper House, to occupy, use, and supply, the said
Room and Place of the said Lord Keeper, in the said
Upper House, amongst the said Lords Spiritual and
Temporal there assembled, at every such Day and
Time of his Absence; and then and there; at every
such Time, to do and execute all such Things as (fn. †) the
said Lord Keeper of the Great Seal of England should
or might do, if he were there personally present, using
and supplying the same Room. Wherefore We will and
command you the said Sir Robert Catlyn to attend to
the Doing and Execution of the Premisses with Effect;
and these our Letters Patent shall be your sufficient
Warrant and Discharge for the same, in every Behalf.
In Witness whereof, We have caused these our Letters
to be made Patents. Witness Ourself, at Westm. the

"Per ipsam Reginam, &c. Powle."
