Begging letter from Charles Stuart

In this letter we can see that the loyalty of the first Norton Conyers Baronet, Richard Graham, was in no question, given that it requests a loan for £200 and is signed off ‘your loving friend Charles R’. Being dated Brussels the 14th January 1660, it was written during the future Charles II’s exile. Whether it was ever paid back is another matter.
