This chapter presents a 10 July 1596 letter written by the Archbishop and Council at York to the Privy Council concerning Richard Atkinson of Ripon. Richard Atkinson, apparently stirring sedition, was considered both a promoter and a ‘Caterpiller’ (‘rapacious person; an extortioner; one who preys upon society’). The chapter also includes a 6 September 1596 letter by Oxford to Robert Cecil where he talks about his daughter Elizabeth's promised annuity and her personal reputation.

Keywords:   Richard Atkinson, Robert Cecil, Elizabeth Cecil, annuity, reputation
