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.
