Description

Excerpt from Letters of Queen Elizabeth and King James Vi; Of Scotland: Some of Them Printed From Originals in the Possession of the Rev. Edward Ryder, and Others From a Ms. Which Formerly Belonged to Sir Peter Thompson, Kt The letters printed in the present volume have been derived from two sources. Forty-three of them have been communicated to the Camden Society by the rev. Edward Ryder, rector of Oaksey, in the county of Wilts: and the remaining fifty-two have been printed from a volume of transcripts formerly in the library of sir Peter Thompson, and now the property of the Camden Society by purchase from James Orchard Halliwell, esq. Of the letters for which we are indebted to Mr. Ryder, thirty-two are originals written wholly by the hand of queen Elizabeth; six are originals of an official character written by a secretary but signed by queen Elizabeth; two are contemporary copies of letters of king James, and two are drafts or copies in his majesty's handwriting. In what manner so large a collection of royal letters found their way into the possession of Mr. Ryder is partly accounted for as follows: At the period to which these letters relate it was the custom for royal secretaries, and also for many other public functionaries, to treat as their own all papers relating to that portion of the public business which they were officially called upon to transact.
