The French Gentelman called Montaignak arrived here with the seid Chester, whom the Dowagier hathe depeched to the Queen's Majestie with Lettres; and we have taken Order for his Passage to the Corte accordinglye. Yesternyght arryved here the Lord of Lethington; and at the same Instant cam hither also the Master of Maxwell from Carlisle; but the rest of the Lords whiche cam by Sea, are not yet arryved, by reason that the Winde is contrarye. We send you herwith a Lettre whiche I the Duke of Norffolk received Yesterdaie from Mr. Winter.
