Love Letter 13

DARLING, I heartily recom-
mend me to you, ascertaining
you that I am not a little perplexed
with such things as your brother
shall on my part declare unto you,
to whom I pray you give full cre-
dence, for it were too long to write.
In my last letters I writ to you that
I trusted shortly to see you, which
is better known at London than with
any that is about me, whereof I not
a little marvel; but lack of discreet
handling must needs be the cause
thereof. No more to you at this time,
but that I trust shortly our meetings
shall not depend upon other men’s
light handlings, but upon our own.

Written with the hand of him that
longeth to be yours.

H. R.

    What does he mean?
    Thanks!

    Roughly translated:

    I’ve been very bothered / confused by some things, which I’m not going to put in this letter because it would take too long. Instead, I’ve told your brother to fill you in, and you can rely on him to tell you all about it.
