Works of King Henry VIII

Henry VIII by Lucas Horenbout (or Hornbolt), 1526-7. Royal Collection.

Henry VIII. to Anne Boleyn.1

[ 1527? ]

      Darling,
                     Though I have scant leisure, yet, remembering my promise, I thought it convenient to certify you briefly in what case our affairs stand.  As touching a lodging1 for you, we have got one by my lord cardinal's means, the like or hire of which 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 both foreseen and provided for, so that I trust it shall be hereafter to both our comforts, the specialties whereof were both too long to be written, and hardly by messenger to be declared.  Wherefore, till your 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 provisions 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.
