This chapter presents a letter by Ralph Lane to Burghley, dated 17 January 1574, concerning ship–traffic with Portugal and three individuals: Antonio de Guaras, a Spanish agent; one ‘R. B.’ ; and Lane himself. The second paragraph of the letter concerns a young nobleman. Though the syntax may suggest otherwise, this was probably Oxford, in whom Burghley had the greatest personal interest. Lane was among the advisers who mistrusted Oxford's interest in foreign affairs and thought he could be bought off with a trip to Ireland.
