This chapter presents a letter written by Walter Ralegh to Burghley, after the latter attempted to get Oxford restored to the Queen's grace. Ralegh details how some unnamed person had requested a hearing of charges against Oxford more than two years previously. After such long absences from court, and after so many disgraces, if Oxford's honour and name were called into question (as they had been once already) he would be forever unfit to receive the Queen's favour or even come into her presence. The Queen agreed to bestow her grace on Oxford — but only on a guarantee of good behaviour.
