I am exceeding glad to understand by yours that you and all my friends are in so perfect a state of health.

My pleasure here cannot be of consideration since I must lose my patron, Mr. Hopton. My brother is well and means to write to you. Present my duty to my mother, my affections to my sisters and brothers, and my service to Sir John Lambe.
Endorsed by Windebank, "Tom, received 3rd April ; answered 11th."

Christopher Windebank to the same.
My brother has lately received a letter from you, wherein I gladly participate of your and my mother's good health.

Thanks for his fatherly care in furnishing him with monies, which by reason of sickness, not altogether yet shaken off, he extremely wanted. Promises to endeavour to obtain the language. Has lived a month at Sienna, forced by a certian ague. There id neither the commodity of a master of the language, nor any lodging place free from that of the Dutch, which is spoken as commonly as in Germany, besides, their unruly behaviour is as great as their privileges. This is the cause of his living in Florence, where, though somewhat dearer, he finds greater accommodation. "Your favours to me give me hopes that you will be pleased to pardon my error in taking a wife without your notice, since it has pleased God it should be so." [2 pp.]

Henry Barker to Dr. Turner
It has formerly been conceived that there was correpondence of affection between my eldest son and one of Sec. Windebank's daughters, your wife's sister, which on my son's part continues; wherefore, if it may be, without eclipsing the gentlewoman's fortunes, and my on may appear worthy in her parents' esteem, I shall be ready to give what satisfaction I am able. I will settle my whole estate, as also leave him all my estate in the parsonages of Hurst and Riscombe after my decease, and settle all upon his heir male, and in case there be none, to engage a great part of it for provision for daughters. For his present maintenance I will allow him 200l. per annum, as also his wife's portion to purchase other lands for present benefit, and part of her jointure. If this may be entertained, I shall wait upon Mr. Secretary, which at this present had been performed had not my bodily infirmities been more now than ever. P.S. - There wa a small remembrance given to my son by his grandfather which I may not dispose of. [Endorsed by Windebank, "Mr.Barker, of Hurst, to my son Turner." Seal with arms. 1 p.]

Thomas Windebank to [Miss Kensham?]
I despair of ever being so fortunate as to find you at home, having missed you so often. My suit to you therefore i, that you would let me know by my ervant at what time, either this day or to-morrow, I may be permitted to attend your ladyship, to the end I may endeavour to remove such misunderstandings as by Lady Cunningham I perceive there are grown between your ladyship and myself. I cannot doubt but that my equest will be granted, especially when I reflect upon your ladyship's quality, and the courtesy and civility which naturally accompany that, and withall consider that the tendering of my humble service in peron to your ladyship cannot be in the least kind prejudicial to you, since I have the quality and reputation of a gentleman, and such an one as can never deire more than what in any judgment he may justly claim to from a lady of the greatest reervation.

Letter from Thomas Windebank
to his cousin Robert Reade:

"We have had a most cold, wet, and long time of living in the field, but have kept ourselves warm with the hopes of rubbing, fubbing, and scrubbing those scurvy, filthy, dirty, nasty, lousy, itchy, scabby , shitten, stinking, slovenly, snotty-nosed, logger-headed, foolish, insolent, proud, beggarly, impertinent, absurd, grout-headed, villainous, barbarous, beastial, false, lying, roguish, devilish, long-eared, short-haired, damnable, atheistcal, puritanical crew of the Scottish Covenant."

"Their light horse was much like that wooden nag they saw billet on in Drury Lane, full as ridged-backed as that, and without more life at all, and just as prick-eared and pin-rumped as a famished cat of mountain, or country pedlar's starved foisting hound."
