X.d.502 (4) Letter from Sir Henry Neville to Nathaniel Bacon: autograph manuscript signed, 1589/90 January 22 2 leaves (bifolium)

Written from "Greneland" [i.e. Greenland, either Yorkshire or Cornwall]. Concerning the sinking of the Revenge in a storm. Nevell will be pleased for his wife, Betty, to have the lease for a farm and expects that Sir Nicholas Bacon will give her 200 pounds towards it. Great provision has been made against the Spanish, but he is too lame to help in the defense. (See Acts of the Privy Council, xviii (1589-1590), p. 324 for the recovery of the Revenge by Sir Henry Palmer and Mr. Burrowes before 20 January 1590.)

X.d.502 (5) Letter from Sir Henry Neville to Nathaniel Bacon: autograph manuscript signed, 1589/90 March 3 2 leaves (bifolium)

Dated: Shrove Tuesday. Written from "Greneland" i.e. Greenland, either Yorkshire or Cornwall. His wife may do as she pleased about the lease, because she wears 'the bryches.' In his opinion, the Duke of Mayne loses many followers by taking the 'Burgunyon Crosse', and the 'king of Spaine p[re]pares w[i]th all spede to eate us up.' Also includes some family news.
