Viewing Event Record: Sir William Faunt writes to Edward Alleyn concerning bulls for Paris Garden


Sir William Faunt responds to Edward Alleyn's interest in acquiring bulls for Paris Garden. Faunt comments on the unsuitability of two of his 'western' bulls, but offers Alleyn the third, which he asserts is 'as good a doble bole as that which you had amee last a single.' Alleyn should send one of his men to Faunt for a trial baiting, and may have any bull that pleases him.
