It is dated on the day of his birth. This letter was preserved by Lady Mary, Countess Dowager of Stamford (1771), as was also another from Henry VIII to Sir George Booth, Feb. 10, 1543, concerning forces to be raised against the Scots.

Hi Raymond

The last name at birth should be Booth, not Boothe. Please change it as we are trying to accurately create Magna Carta Trails. Thanks
