But because ye promised to send another diamond to accomplish the brooch of the Assumption of our Lady, Hugh Gyles caused the pattern of ij brooches to be drawn out: one with the image of Our Lady, the other with a personage sitting under a cloth-of-state, and carried these ij patterns of brooches to you to show you the device, and willed in this nothing to be meddled till we heard from your ladyship.

So then he asked a discharge of Mr. Bucler, who gave him a letter of his own hand and paid for the fashion of the flower and the mending of the brooch, with the overplus of the gold he put to it, xvij francs, one sous and ixd. Tounois, which is sterling xxxvijs. xjd. ob. farthing. He would have xx sous for the drawing of the ij brooches, which he swore to have paid to the painter, and iij crowns and a half of the sun for his work, the rest for the gold he hath put in, more than was, as it appeareth by a bill written of the goldsmith, within the box.

Mr. Barker, I have sent unto you by this bringer a flower with iiij diamonds and one ruby in the midst and three pearls hanging at it, which flower I pray you let it remain in your hands till I send you one other diamond; all which diamonds I would heartily pray you to cause them to be set within a brooch upon an image of Our Lady of the Assumption, or some other thing, as you shall think best; so that the diamonds may be conveyed upon it, so that the ruby may be by your advice set in a ring. And the pearls, you may send them again if it be not thought best to be jointly upon the same brooch.

Item, also I send you a brooch of the Salutation of Our Lady, which long time hath been mine, howbeit it is with the least, and loath I am to break it. I pray you let it be new enamelled and well mended, as the bringer can shew unto you by mouth.

Also I send you a flower semblable unto a gilliflower, which I desire to have by your advice amended and made of more substance; for it breaketh often times because the branches be slender, and there is lacking one of the flowers, which must be incarnate.

Also, I send you a cross of gold, weighing vij angels half, desiring to have it changed to coarser gold to make me a good, well-favoured brooch of some new fashion, bigger and larger nor this here afore rehearsed; and the over-plus of the gold may serve well to amend the substance of the flower. Evermore requiring you that it may be rich and goodly and of the best and newest fashion that you can devise, though it were some person being under a cloth of estate. I have shewed this bringer my mind thereof to advertise more plainly by mouth.

Also I pray you to send me xxxte pair of aglets, 20 pair of one sort and 10 pair of another sort; desiring you and praying you to write unto me what sum of money may amount all this mine affairs, so that when I send you the diamond I shall send you money withal. May chance at that season I shall send you more diamonds than one, to the intent to have the flower rich. And after all the premises I pray you inform you of my servant, the bringer hereof, how I have given him knowledge of everything too, by mouth, to the intent that you may the plainer understand mine intent, etc.
