Love Letter 15

DARLING, Though I have scant leisure, yet, remember- ing my promise, I thought it con- venient to certify you briefly in what case our affairs stand. As touching a lodging for you, we have got one by my lord cardinal's means, the like whereof could not have been found hereabouts for all causes, as this bearer shall more show you. As touching our other affairs, I assure you there can be no more done, nor more diligence used, nor all manner of dangers bet- ter both foreseen and provided for, so that I trust it shall be hereafter to both our comforts, the specialities whereof were both too long to be written, and hardly by messenger to be declared. Wherefore, till you repair hither, I keep something in store, trusting it shall not be long to; for I have caused my lord, your father, to make his pro- visions with speed; and thus for lack of time, darling, I make an end of my letter, written with the hand of him which I would were yours. H.R.

    I’m writing an essay on the external factors that could have influenced religious change from 1509-1603, during henrys reign, would you say that Anne was a key source of influence that pushed Henry towards the reformation?

      The English Reformation was a direct result of Henry VIII’s decision to reject papal authority and seek an annulment from Catherine of Aragon so that he might marry Ann Boleyn and secure a legitimate heir to the Tudor dynasty.
