263. Scrope to Walsingham. [Oct. 26.]

Yesternight I received your letter signifying that Her Majesty hath appointed a parliament to be called the 23d of next month. I have a great desire to attend and do my duty, yet considering the terms on which I stand with the King of Scots and his warden opposite (not unknown to you), and the late disorders and want of justice, it gives me occasion to ask you to lay the same before her highness, that I may be employed there or here as her Majesty thinks best.

Since I wrote to you "by Bellamye that the Maxwelles were abowt to have killed the Larde Johnston for the office of provostshippe of Drumfreise, I am nowe crediblie informed that this daye he intendeth again to offre to make a newe entrie to the said office." Carlisle. Signed: H. Scrope.
