I think fit to let your lordship understand what passed yesterday in the Star Chamber touching Suffolk business.
There came to me the clerk of the court in the inner chamber and told me that my Lord of Suffolk desired to be heard by his council at the sitting of the court, because it was pen ____ him.
I called presently Mr. Attorney to me, and asked him whether he knew of the motion, and what it was, and how he was provided to answer it. He signified to me, that my lord would desire to have the commission for examinations in Ireland to be returnable in Michaelmas term. I said it might not be, and presently drew the council then present, to me, and made Mr. Attorney repeat to them the passages past, and settled it, that the commission should be returnable the first day of the next term, and then republication granted, that it might, if accidents of wind and weather permit, come to hearing in the term. And upon motion in open court it was ordered accordingly. God ever preserve and prosper you. I pray God this great easterly wind agree well with His Majesty.
Your Lordship's most obliged friend and faithful servant,Fr. Verulam, Canc.
