  • How to
    request
'A Latin Translation of the Relation of a conference between William Laud and Mr. [John] Fisher the Jesuit', in 1622, perhaps made for Laud, the Latin being hardly idiomatic enough to be the archbp.'s own composition. The bulk of the volume is in a scribe's hand, but up to page 10 bears many autograph corrections by Laud himself, and the whole of the Epistle Dedicatory occurs both in Laud's own hand and in the scribe's hand corrected by Laud. This translation does not appear to have been published or referred to: two English editions were issued in 1639. The volume is marked 'C.'
