A letter of Sir Francis Walsingham to M. Richard Hakluyt then of Christchurch in Oxford , incouraging him in the study of Cosmographie, and of furthering new discoveries, &c.

I UNDERSTAND aswel by a letter I long since received from the Maior of Bristoll, as by conference with Sir George Pekham, that you have endevoured, & given much light for the discovery of the Westerne partes yet unknowen: as your studie in these things is very commendable, so I thanke you much for the same; wishing you do continue your travell in these and like matters, which are like to turne not only to your owne good in private, but to the publike benefite of this Realme. And so I bid you farewell.

From the Court the 11. of March. 1582. Your loving Friend,
FRANCIS WALSINGHAM.
