Later Addition: 26 June 92


May it please your good L. I desired a gentleman one Master Gent, to whome this mor- ning I delivered my last to your L. to signifie by worde, that steenwicke was yelded. Whiche I had not the leasure, to putte in a letter, because the bringer of the newes came but presently then when he was departing. What was done by our souldiers, before the towne was given up, your L. may see by the copie of a letter, which was written from thens the self same day in the morning: which I send yow together with the Articles of the Accord, that were concluded then at night. There were found in the towne that marched away 550 souldiers, besides 200 hurt and sicke, and at the lest 300 slaine. Howbeit it is thought, that we have lost of ours, sins the siege beganne at the lest a 1000 men: and that of our Captaines and principal officers the greatest part are hurt and slaine. Which I thought to advertise with the rest, and so I take my humble leave. From the Hage. June 26 1592. Your L. most humbly bounden. Tho. Bodley
