601. Bernardino De Mendoza to the King.
[Extract.]
I have received news from St. Denis that the prince of Bearn was trying to induce the queen of England to send a fleet to Flanders, but that the fondo delayed it ; (fn. 1) beside which the Queen wishes to hold some French towns as security for the cost of maintenance of the fleet. Stafford, who was with Bearn, was negotiating about this. Horatio Pallavicini was also with Bearn. — Paris, 11th September 1590.

Footnotes

1 In the King's hand :—"I do not understand the passage I have underlined." The use of fondo in this connection is not clear, unless it refers to the shallow and shoally nature of the Flemish coast.
