Endd. Lat. P. ¾.
Earlier. (fn. 1) 2722. The Viscount De Gruz.
Admits that he haunted the lodgings of the ambassador of Sweden after the Queen had refused the offer of his service, being in the last extremity, offering his service to the King, his master, but denies that he has ever spoken to him about matters which could touch the person or estate of Her Majesty or of the Queen of Scots. Told the ambassador that if the Queen of England refused his master, he did not think the Queen of Scots would do so, as she was one of the poorest princesses in the world, who replied that this would be the ruin of England, to which he said that he did not think that the King would marry either Intends to retire himself into Germany.
