Lead is out of request at London at the moment, so he proposes to ship both some of his and some of the Earl's to Rouen. As for the 20 fothers Walley has concluded with the Earl for, to be delivered at Hull between May and Whitsuntide, it will suit Pullyson's turn as well if it comes between midsummer and St. Bartholomew's. 1p. Clerk's hand, signed. Endorsed. Address in sixth Earl's hand: 'mete to be kepte'.
Folio 315

Folio 331
Gilbert Talbot to the Earl of Shrewsbury, from Charing Cross, Friday, late at night, 15 May 1579. As it has been wet and the Earl of Leicester is away from the Court, he delivered the Earl's letter to the Queen about the Glossopdale tenants to Mr. Secretary [Sir Francis] Walsingham and understands she liked it well. He has also delivered letters on the subject to the Earl of Leicester and Lord Treasurer [Burghley]. With the coming up of Higginbotham, Gilbert trusts that this is the end of the affair [cf. folios 303, 319]. Those unreasonable people of Ashford have returned again to the north without placing their complaints and Leicester feels that this is as well, who told him that the Queen was likely to be disturbed about Mary, Queen of Scots remaining with the Earl if there were any suggestion of disagreement between the Earl and the Countess or between the Earl and his tenants. The Monseigneur affair [cf. folio 307] grows cold. A post-script states that he heard from the Earl of Leicester the next day after this was written that the Queen believed the Earl and Countess to be making 3-4,000 marks yearly out of the Peak, which Leicester assured her was untrue. 3pp. Endorsed.
