May it please your good L. The fitte opportunitie of a messenger being offered, but geving me no leasure, to write at any length, I send your L. heerewith Count Mau- rice owne letter to the Councell of state, de- claring the surrendrie of the towne of Steen- berghen: whiche geveth a great contentment to the people of this contrey. For the passage by water between Holland and Zeland will nowe in a maner be cleane out of dan- ger, and the contrey eased of a great expense in maintening many shippes of warre, for the only securitie of those that passed that way &c./.
