Gives the substance of a conversation he has had with one Swigo, an Italian, and Acerbo Vellutelli concerning the exchange.
The former has furnished him with a paper distinguishing those Italians who are willing to obey the new order for the exchange from the rest, and giving full particulars of the life and disposition of those who withdraw from their duty herein, with the unlawful traffic they use which papers he sends for his Lordship's information as he has been requested to do. Swigo tells him a thing which he hardly dare believe, namely that Mr. Baptist of the Privy Chamber is a secret favourer of those Italians who make complaint against his lordship, and a furtherer of their petitions with her Majesty.
Sends a copy of a letter he wrote to Mr. Edward Chester in Holland in August last by commandment secretly of her Majesty and Mr. Secretary, which letter contains also the substance of what he then wrote to the Prince of Orange and to Mr. Buys, in order that his lordship may judge of certain misconceptions and wrong reports of his negotiations.—18 Oct. 1576.
