This chapter details Oxford's quarrel with Sidney's uncle Leicester. Henry Howard reveals that Oxford, citing Rowland York as witness, accused Leicester of being engaged in sedition if not treason. An independent memorandum, headed ‘Articles wherof Oxford wold have accusid Lester’, contained two major accusations: first, that Leicester had stockpiled weapons, powder, and food at Kenilworth Castle, as well as a large cache of money, in preparation for a rebellion; second, that Leicester had been complicit in the death of Walter Devereux, the ‘old’ Earl of Essex, on 22 September 1576.
