I have included this letter, which refers to the wardship of a member of the Pointz family, simply because it is the typical sort of letter Anne would have written as queen of England. Anne Boleyn had been granted the lucrative wardship of the Pointz heir by Henry VIII, but one of Cromwell’s associates interfered with it. In this letter, Anne asks for Thomas Cromwell‘s help in resolving the matter.
Master Secretary, I pray you despatch with speed this matter, for mine honor lies much on it, and what should the king’s attorney do with Pointz’s obligation, since I have the child by the king’s grace’s gift, but only to trouble him hereafter, which by no means I will suffer, and thus fare you as well as I would ye did.
Your loving mistress,
Anne the Queen.
