- The quote from Harington's letter: “we will continue to suffer, and rest ourselves in God, whose mercy is sure and safe, and in all true love to her (the princess Elizabeth, who doth honour us in tender sort, and scorneth not to shed her tears with ours.” can be found in Agnes Strickland's Lives of the Queens of England Vol V.
