Madame, as touching the gloves which I promised to send your ladyship, I have not been able to procure any in all London; but there is an Italian who hath promised to make me a gift thereof; and as I know not how long it may be until I recover them, until such time, Madame, I beseech you to take this poor trifling present in gree, which is a pair of gloves lined, of wool, the best that I could procure in London, by reason that I cannot come by the others. My will is good, but my power is small, for the which I am sorry I cannot do the better, seeing my power is the lesser than my wish.

And this shall be to advertise you that your most gentle letter of xxviij day of the last month I have received, and according to the same I have received the ring your ladyship sent me by Husse, and since that time I have received by the hands of Jenyn, that was Mr. Hacket's servant, a small ring, with a flagon of silver, for the which I most heartily thank your good ladyship. And touching certain other matters contained in your said letter, I must desire you to be contented although I make no answer, for I promise you at this time I have no leisure. But the ring that your Ladyship willed me that I should send it to her I love best, I suppose it will be my chance to send it to Calais very shortly, and she that I shall send it to I put no doubt but that she will wear it for my sake.

Madame, I send you at this, by my singular good friend the Ambassador of Flanders, bringing hereof, your ladyship's ring, which you sent me the same night I departed last from Calais. He hath promised me to deliver it surely to your own hands.
