57. Forster to The Privy Council. [July 19.]

In answer to your honours' letter of the 11th instant, for my opinion on the desire of the Scots that general redress be made on both sides since the peace in 1563, when I was a commissioner, I think the same convenient and not any way prejudicial to the Queen or her subjects, unless some unknown claim be made. I think some question may arise concerning the Earl of Sussex's roade into Scotland, which our commissioners must consider in making their claims. At my house nigh Alnwick. Signed: John Forster.
