This chapter describes the marriage of nineteen–year–old Lady Elizabeth Vere to William Stanley, 6th Earl of Derby, in January 1595. It also presents Oxford's letter to Cecil dated 24 April, where he insisted that his newly married daughter receive an agreed–upon £1000 per annum from her husband. We may wonder whether Oxford did not have his own designs on his daughter's prospective £1000 per annum, an amount equal to his own pension from the royal treasury. Oxford's letter also constitutes an implicit acknowledgement that Robert Cecil had now become a means of access to royal power comparable to his father Burghley.
