From the Original.

IN most humble and reverend Maner, I do from the Bottome of my Harte consesse, that the lewde and unfyttyng Wardes uttered by me, for the which I have ben most worthely punished, are suche, as I am very hartely sory for, and shall with God's Grace henceforthe beware, that the lycke shall never enter into my Hartte, and muche lesse passe my Mouthe; most humbly besekynge your Honor to be Meanes for me to the Quene's Majestie for hyr Hygnes Pardon and Remyssyon of this my Falte. And as I shall not fayll to be a contynuall Intercessor to Almighty God for the prosperus Preservation of hir Majestie, so wyll I study by all the Meanes I can, to redubbe and recompence my former Offence. Your most humble and obedyent Orator,

Arthur Gounter.

To the Ryght Honerable Sir William Cecill Knight, the Quene's Majesty's principall Secretary.
