This chapter presents a 11 January 1597 letter Oxford wrote to Cecil concerning a suit brought against his wife. It traces the origins of the suit, going back to Oxford's dealings with one Thomas Gurley, which began within a month of Oxford's landing in the Low Countries on 27 August 1585. It is suggested that Gurley sued the Countess rather than the Earl because she had deeper pockets.

Keywords:   Low Countries, Robert Cecil, lawsuit, Thomas Gurley
