And also there was likewise proclaimed the Quenes graces warrant, for the restitution of the church goodes within Colchester, and the hundreds therabout, to the vse of gods seruice. And then were called the parishes particularly, and the Heretikes partly committed to my examination. And that diuers persones should certify me of theyr ornamentes of their churches, betwixt this and the Iustices next appearaūce, which shalbe on Mighelmasse euē next. And that parish which had presented at two seuerall tymes, to haue all ornamentes, with other liuinges in good order, were exonerated for euer, to they were warned againe, and others to make theyr appearaunce, from tyme to tyme.

came vnto me in my Lorde Darcies house and parlour, belonging vnto mayster Barnaby, before my said Lord and all the Iustyces, and layd his hand of my shoulder with a smiling countenaunce, and desired me to make his heartye commendations vnto youre good Lordship, and asked me if I would, and I saide yea, with a good will. wherfore I was glad, & hought that I should not haue bene charged with so soddeyn cariage. But after the Diner the Iustices counselled with the Bailiffes, and with the Gaolers, and then after tooke me vn-

to them, and made collation of the indentures, and sealed: and then maister Brown commaūded me this after noone, being the. xxx. of August, to goe and receiue my prisoners by and by. And then I said, it is an vnreasonable commaundement, for that I haue attended of you here these thre dayes, and this Sonday early I haue sent home my men. wherfore I desyre you to haue a conueniēt time appointed, wher in I may know whether it will please my lord my maister to send his commissioners hether, or that I shall make cariage of them vnto hys Lordship. Then maister Brown. we are certyfied that the counsel hath writtē vnto your master to make spede, and to rid these prisoners out of his hande: therfore go receiue your prysoners in hast. Then I. Sir I shall receyue them within tenne dayes. Then maister Browne. The limitation lyeth in vs, and not in you. wherfore get you hence.

Syr, ye haue indited and deliuered me by this indenture, whose faith or opiniōs I know not, trusting that ye will graunt me a tyme to examine them, least I should punish the catholikes. Well sayde mayster Browne, for that cause ye shall haue tyme betwixte thys and wednisdaye. And I saye vnto you maister bailiffes, yf hee dooe not receyue them at youre handes on wednisdaye, sette open your dores and let them go.

Then I. My Lorde, the laste I caried, I was goyng betwixt the Castell, & sainct Katherins chappel, two howers and an half, and in great presse and daunger: wherfore this may bee in desire your lordshippe to geue in commaundement vnto my maister Saier, Bailye here present, for to ayde me throughe hys lybertyes, not onely with men and weapons, but that the town clerke may be ready there with his boke to write the names of the most busy persones, and this vpon thre houres warnyng, all which my lorde and maister Browne commaunded.
