2. Three other copies of the same.

256. Scrope to Walsingham. [Sept. 21.]

I send you copies of the Laird of Johnstons letter to me regarding justice, and of my answer, which I trust you will think reasonable. Understanding by my friend Mr Warcope, that there have been some speeches at Court regarding the state of this border, I required the gentlemen of the country present at last assizes before Mr Serjeaut Rhodes, to give their opinions—who declared they never knew the same in better order,—which I trust he will declare at Court. Carlisle. Signed: H. Scrope.

1 p. Addressed. Indorsed.

Inclosed in same:—

(1) (Johnston to Scrope.)

Signifying that the King in his report of late outrages, had commanded him to crave redress, and do the like—and awaiting his reply. Torthorvald this xvjth of Septembre 1584. John Johnston.

1 p. Copy by Scrope's clerk. Addressed. Indorsed.

(2) (Scrope's reply.)

Acknowledging Johnston's letter by Thomas Scott his man, and that on receiving the King's letter promising justice for the murders, &c., by Liddesdale, he will meet him on other matters requiring redress (after dispatching some business he has with the Lord President), and will be ready to exchange bills, &c. Carlisle the xviijth of September 1584. H. Scroppe.

1 p. Copy by his clerk. Addressed. Indorsed.

257. Scrope To Walsingham. [Sept. 27.]

Recommending to his good offices the bearer "Hobbye Scotte," going up to Court, from whom he received the intelligence lately sent to Walsingham, and has had "such other freindshippes before." If furthered in his present suit, he may be again useful. Yenwith. Signed: H. Scrope.

½ p. Addressed. Indorsed.

258. Forster To Walsingham. [Sept. 30.]

On your letters directing me to stand on our guard, I wrote to Mr Davison then ambassador in Scotland with a note of attempts to lay before the King, but had no redress. At Mr Davison's leaving Scotland, I caused a rode to be made, where Mr Fenwick, Mr Herone and others killed 5 or 6 of the Elwetts, and brought off goods. If the King complains to her highness, I would ask you "to put in your good worde," that I will duly answer, on receiving the like. I have stayed this long time from meeting the opposite warden, till he answers for Liddesdale—"but my lorde of Hunesdon since his cominge downe, hath had sondry meitings with the opposite warden for Est Tyvidale, which is but a small peece of his office, and yesterdaye beinge the penult of this September, there was a secrete meitinge betwene Sir John Selbie and the Larde of Pharnehyrste, wherin I suppose there is some greate secrecie—for the Erle of Arraine dyd wryte unto my lorde of Hunesdon to have a secrete meitinge betwene the said Sir John Selbie and Pharnihyrst. . . . There is muche ado betwene Pharnihyrst and Cesforde for the wardenrye," which encourages the thieves on both sides. "The Erle of Arraine useth his accustomed pleasure towards most of the nobilitie of Scotlande, and at this presente the Lorde Hewme is in warde at Tantallen, and the Erle Bothewell at Creghton. The plage is verie sore at the Corte of Scotlande, and iiij of the Kings howsehold dead, and nowe the King is fled frome St Johnstone to Sterlinge for feare of the plage, and hath comaunded all passages to be stopt for any passangers coming over the water of Forthe—and yet I ame enformed that the plage is verie sore at Leithe." I humbly beg to know if I may meet the opposite warden, as Lord Hunsdon doth, and take what I can get, or stand on redress for Liddesdale ?

"Postscript.—Theis enclosed letters are to my lorde of Shrewesburye frome Mr Edwarde Talbott his sonne, to whome God hathe sent a younge sonne." At my house. Signed: John Forster.
