Order in the suit between Maryon Pickering and her husband, Anne Bate and her husband, plaintiffs, against Monnes and wife, Lambert and wife, and Stevenson, defendants; concerning copyhold land holden of Lord Wentworth as of his manor of Stebynhethe in Middlesex. Referred, by consent, to Mr. Wilbraham, Attorney of the Court of Wards, and Mr. Fleetwood, Recorder of London.

67. Andreas de Loo to Lord Burghley.
1572, July 6. Has been in prison for nearly five months. Desires that his cause may be heard soon, and, in the meanwhile, that he may be allowed to leave the prison for a few days on account of his health, giving the warden ample security for his return.—The Fleet, 6 July 1572.

69. De Croc to Lord Burghley.
1572, July 9. Sent a despatch to M. la Mothe on the 5th inst., and doubts not that it has come to Burghley's hands—as it was addressed to him—and that he has ordered it to be delivered to La Mothe. In like manner desires that this may be delivered to him. The Queen's ambassador and himself are getting on well together. He praises the ambassador in all his letters, and it appears to him (De Croc) that the ambassador acts so plainly in everything he does that he thinks that he has the same opinion of the writer. Both of them are intent on the quiet of this realm, which must come from their Majesties, as among themselves they cannot agree, and neither would come to any settlement. Trusts that the peace may soon be effected.—Leith [Petit Liet], 9 July 1572.
