381. Sir Ja. Fullertone to Sir Thomas Lake, Knight. [Nov. 24.] Add. Papers, Ireland.

Having moved the Lord Lieutenant in his own behalf, finds him very willing to further him, but altogether unwilling to be a suitor to the King for him. Now seeing his expectation is that way frustrate would earnestly request him (Sir Thomas) if he finds good opportunity, and His Majesty fit for the purpose, to motion his suit to him. Knows he had rather second a motion made by another than move any himself, yet, forasmuch as none of his countrymen can apprehend his business, is constrained to crave his (Luke's) favour herein ; if he think it inconvenient, prays that he would advise him how to proceed in it. By the contracting of the army from 12,000 foot and 1,000 horse, to 3,000 foot and 400 horse, and by the further intended reduction, about Christmas, to the half of these, he has lost 500l. by the year, being allowed one day's pay in the year for his pains, for making up their warrants of full pay twice in the year, and by the change of the money into English he has lost 50l. by year. Prays that His Majesty would either give this office to some other and give him some means in England to live upon, or would enable him to live according to his calling in some measure, by granting him a dead pay out of every company of horse and foot so long as the army shall be small, and that he would change the Irish pay allowed to him into English. Hears that the King will not be here till near Christmas, and there will be no time for suitors till after Christmas. A petition may easily be drawn by this letter if need be.— London, 24 November 1604.
