This chapter focuses on Oxford's quest for financial security as he reached his fortieth year in 1590. It presents his letters of Burghley which reflect an ever–increasing desperation after squandering his lands. Oxford's former servant Henry Lok also penned a letter of appeal to Burghley from Edinburgh. His service under Oxford led to financial disaster, as he has been forced over the years to assume personal debt in the discharge of Oxford's affairs.

Keywords:   financial security, debt, Burghley, Henry Lok
