October 1583

Oct.? 230. Fenton to Leicester. Is not able to travel far by reason of a great swelling and … both in his stomach and legs. Hopes the place of meeting may not be far from his lodging, till he is better able to travel, and that in those meetings and conferences the attendance of the pilots, masters, and other officers employed in that service may be commanded. Requests restitution of his apparel and other things at Muscovy House, having small means and less ability to provide new, they being in effect spoiled at sea and for want of looking to. [One page and a quarter. Mutilated by fire. Brit. Mus., Otho, VIII., fol. 134.]
