May it please your good L. because in yesterdaies letter, wherein I writte to your L. of the taking of Deventer, I could specifie but litle of the circumstance and meanes, I have therfore sent yow the translated copies out of Dutche of the letters of advertisment, which came sins from the campe, to the general states. Withall because the agreement was one both with De- venter and Zutphen, I have sent yow a copie of the said agreement, and therewith take my humble leave. From the Hage. June 2 1591. Your L. most humbly bounden Tho. Bodley

Postscript: I have as yet no letter from any English at the Campe, for whiche I can not report what was done by them in speciall. But many say heere of the common people, that their couragious comming to the assault (where it is also given out, that they caried an enseigne from the walles) appalled the Enemie exceedingly, and was the principal cause of their yelding upon it.
