Analyse d'une lettre de sir Nicholas Throckmorton concernant les conditions dans lesquelles il est retenu en otage au château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye

« The chamber in the tower where he lies is hung with tapestry and the bedding which he and his folks occupy is hired by him, and so are all the things that he needs. In the morning, he is suffered (accompanied by three or four of his guard) to walk in the park of Saint Germain an hour, and in the daytime to walk when he wills in the gallery of the house with the keeper, and towards the evening is suffered to walk in the garden. Adjoining his chamber is a great one, where he has liberty all day to walk, and a smaller to dine and sup in. Some officers accompany him at meals. Twice in the day two of his folks are suffered to go in Saint Germain to buy his victuals. About 6 p. m. he with one of his servants is locked in his chamber, and the rest of his folks in another, and the guards lie upon a pallet at his chamber door. When Smith writes let his messenger come to the sign of “Our Lady” in Saint Germain, where, before diner and supper, one of his folks is suffered to go to to fetch his wine.
The captain of the castle has written to the King to have him to his own house at a village called Carriere.
