May it please your good L. Heare I send yow the copies of two intercepted lettres, having also sent the like unto my L. Tresurer. They were sent from Brussels for Rome, and written by one William Creytton a Scottishe Jesuit, a man of credit and experience, and the chiefest plotter, as I have heard, of these troubles in Scotland. One of the lettres is ad- dressed to Cardinal Caetan, and the other to the General of the Jesuites. Thomas Tyrie, who is thought to be the man, that can doe them so muche good, is nephew to James Tyrie, in time past a famous pro- fessor among the Jesuites of Paris, but nowe abiding in Rome. The L. Humes, and the wife of Thomas Tyrie, are brother and sisters children.

Of all other maters I have written to your L. the 22 of this moneth. And so I take my humble leave. From the Hage February 26 1594 Your L. most humbly bounden Tho. Bodley
