Letters from Sir Robert Cecil to Sir George Carew Section 8 XVII
05 Feb 1600. Court. To George Carew 1st Earl Totnes 1555-1629 (44).
We have no news but that there is a misfortune befallen Mistris Fitton (21) for she is proved with child, and the E. of Pembroke (19) being examyned confesseth a ffact, but utterly renounceth all marriage. I fear they will both dwell in the Tower awhyle, for the Queen (66) have vowed to send them thether.
When you thing fit you may send over 1076 [Desmond] but retain his patent with yourself. You shall not need to send to know her Ma'ties further pleasure. In many wayes lett not Cashell come over. The more excpectation which 1076 leaveth behynd him o returne the better construction wilbe made of his departure.
Robert Cecil 1st Earl Salisbury 1563-1612 (36)
