August 1548

Aug. 11.
104. Balthasar Alterius to the Lord Protector. Incloses intelligence from the Roman Court (missing). The French King will come to Turin on the 15th inst., with very few horsemen, merely to look at the place, and then will return.
Aug. 16.
105. William Dansell to Sir Francis Fleming, Lieutenant of the King's Majesty's Ordnance, or to Mr. A. Anthony, Clerk of the same at the Tower. Mentioning his having shipped certain stores (therein enumerated) under this mark [symbol], which he will please to receive for his Majesty's use, and give an acknowledgment therefor. Can supply his Majesty with a considerable quantity of saltpetre at seven crowns and a half, or very near thereabout. [One page.]
Aug. 26.
106. Balthasar Alterius to the Lord Protector. Incloses intelligence from the Roman Court (missing). The King of France is still at Turin, but it is said will depart shortly, not without some small diminution of his fame, his advent having been compared to the mountain in labour. Ferdinand Gonzaga lately visited him and soon left. Thinks the King will remain longer to await the arrival of the Prince of Spain in Italy, that he may receive a reply from them, whom he has sought by many promises to accede to his purpose. This is the more likely, if it be that the Duke of Vendome is shortly expected at Mantua, and thereafter at Venice. [One page.]
