Letter Fifteenth To Anne Boleyn

MINE own SWEETHEART, this shall be to advertise you of the great

elengeness that I find here since your departing; for, I ensure you

methinketh the time longer since your departing now last, than I was wont

to do a whole fortnight. I think your kindness and my fervency of love

causeth it; for, otherwise, I would not have thought it possible that for

so little a while it should have grieved me. But now that I am coming

towards you, methinketh my pains be half removed; and also I am right

well comforted in so much that my book maketh substantially for my

matter; in looking whereof I have spent above four hours this day, which

causeth me now to write the shorter letter to you at this time, because of

some pain in my head; wishing myself (especially an evening) in my

sweetheart's arms, whose pretty dukkys I trust shortly to kiss.

Written by the hand of him that was, is, and shall be yours by his own


H. R.
