May it please your good L. I thought before this, that you had bin moved by a fitter person then my self, for your honorable furtherance in a matter of some suite, which I have formerly presented. Howbeit the parties absense both from London and the Court doth force me nowe againe to make mine owne petition, beseeching you most humbly to remember her Majestie of my long continuance in this place, and to intreat her gratious favor, to licence my returne. For besides many hazardes which I have incurred in my privat poore estate, by reason of mine absence, which I was willinger you should knowe by some other then my self, and by speeches then by writing, It hath pleased God of late to calle away my Father, to whom I had commended my domesticall affaires, and the care of all my state: and by meanes of his decease, it is at this present muche more entangled then before, and further domages sustened then I will troble your L. to heare reported. But nothing doubting but that your favor unto me is the same that it hath bin, and that her Majestie wilbe moved with your L. good persuasion, I relie upon it wholy, and take my humble leave. Hague November 1591.
