Letters from the Robert Cecil collection

The Earl of Northumberland to the Earl of Salisbury [1609] April 13. —
There are some things in question which come under your direction, too long to particularise by writing; therefore I pray you give this officer of mine hearing for me. 13 April. Holograph Endorsed: '1609.'

Sir Edward Wyntour to the Earl of Salisbury
1609, April 13. — You will be well pleased to understand what has been done in this country about the appeasing of such great disorders and dangerous tumults as have happened here of late. As it cannot be done by letters, I will come up myself. All matters here remain now very quiet, the people much ashamed and, as it should seem, very sorry of the vanity and rashness that without any just cause sent them into so high a contempt of his Majesty's authority. They promise all future obedience. My poor house of Lydney, 13 April, 1609.

RSB: I'm not exactly sure which great disorders Wyntour is talking about, or why the people are "ashamed.," or in what way they showed contempt for King James. I'm endeavoring to find out.

Sir Thomas Edmondes to the Earl of Salisbury (Summary)
1609, April 13. — Treaty with the Infanta, the Archduke and the President concerning Hoens. The truce published. Discourses upon the truce, as if the conditions were all to the Archduke's advantage. Desire to have the unnatural subjects, which remain on that side and are as firebrands to his Majesty's estate, removed. Touching the presents of the Commissioners.

RSB: the above entry shows that the political ramifications of the Truce (between Spain and the Netherlands) , published in England around April 13, 1609, were being widely discussed.
