Scope and Contents

The Queen told the Earl of Leicester and the Lord Chamberlain "that she neuer had any [garments] so well lyked her" as the Countess's New Year's gift, and especially liked "the color and strange triminge." All are well at Hackney (the Lennox's), and Lady Arbella is a good child. Asks after Lord George (her grandson, the son of Gilbert and Mary, who died in 1577, age 2.)
