Excerpt: ... arrived for her from France to be forwarded to her." 3 In reporting the arrival of these articles at Sheffield, and their delivery to the Queen of Scots, Shrewsbury half remonstrates against the indulgence so allowed, remarking "Her Majesty may be sure she will not lack intelligence while she suffers mes 1 Teulet's La Mothe, v. 6, p. 64. 1 Labanoff, v. 4, p. 119. 8 Teulet's La Mothe, v. 6, p. 76. sengers and letters to come to her. I can not be more wary to cut her from all intelligence and practice, and will continue so." 1 The early part of this year was an uneasy time for the Earl of Shrewsbury. His chaplain, one Thomas Corker, who enjoyed the vicarage of Rotherham, and the rectory of Handsworth, by the bounty of his Lordship, went up to London, along with another clergyman named Howarth, and communicated with Dr. Wilson, Master of Requests, charging the Earl with favouring the title of the Queen of Scots, and with other crimes, and also representing him as a credulous fool, who was the sport of more clever and designing people. Corker was examined by the Earl of Leicester, and failed to prove his words. Howarth was apprehended at Islington, and placed in confinement. Referring to these events, La Mothe says: --"There is a Protestant chaplain, who used to serve the Earl of Shrewsbury, who, having come here to impeach the Queen of Scots, and having so much irritated the Queen of England against her, that her life has been in extreme danger, has been carefully watched by a good friend of this Court, who has at length convicted him of imposture, for which he has been condemned to the pillory, and the Queen of Scots remains for the present delivered from this great danger, thanks to our Lord, to whom I pray."2...
