Thomas Barlow, Oxford to William Dugdale, 26 May 1664

My worthy friend I receaved a letter last night from that honest Baron Spelman, who (it seemes) is, without cause, (as I conceave) offended a little with those words in the Epistle [Vocabula nonnulla additit, et Emendations predit et aliquanto auctius] wt Answere I haue given him, you may see by the copy of it here inclosed; which I send that you may see (if not my discretion yet) my innocence in that particular. I would not haue you take any notice at al of it unles he srake of it, and if he doe, you may see (by the inclosed) that I haue writt that which is truth, and acknowledged the fault (if any be) mine owne solely But fault there is none, what I said is just and true, and I am sure the doeinge you a little right is noe wronge to that Excellent Antiquery who (were he alive) would haue said more himself I am at this present in extraordinary hast and desire you to pardon the many infirmityes of your affectionate friend
