<C> Duffs Examinacion I have herewith sent; & for Mr. Cooley, the Governor Sir Henry Titchborne, hath sent you Cooleys owne Letters, which (is thought) will proue a sufficient charge against him if not, my Lord Moore himself (who very nobly declyneing all thoughts & respects of bloud & kinred did first make knowen his villanies) will give such a good accompt of him, as shall render him a man noe way capeable of his Maiesties mercy or pardon, & soe I am confident your Lordship will conceive Duff to be, vppon whome I had freely bestowed a Cast of my office, had I not conceived that your Lordships there might have some other matters to object against him, than to mee are knowen. And soe I humbly remayne
