127. Antonio De Noxeto to Francesco Sforza, Duke of Milan.
To-day I hear from the king's court that the king is going to Amboise and thence to Paris to confer with the ambassadors of King Edward, who are coming to him, notwithstanding that his own have left to go to King Edward (fn. 1) . Thus your lordship may reckon that the king's men at arms will take some other way and will not go to Lyons, as everybody said, though I have always been of the contrary opinion.

128. Albricus Maletta, Milanese Ambassador in France to Francesco Sforza, Duke of Milan.
The Duke of Savoy is going to the king in eight or ten days, his Majesty having put everything at his disposition. The duke is going with the intention of doing everything that the king wishes. I hear that the king has written to the duke, saying he wishes him to be present at the negotiations for a truce with the English, and he shall have the honour, and he will do whatever the duke pleases.
M. Franceschino Pantaleone has also told me that he has spoken with someone who saw an English lord with about sixty horse, who was going to the king; and that the Duke of Burgundy is doing his best to bring about this truce between the king and the English, who ask for the king's daughter for King Edward. The king replied that she was too small, but he would get him a daughter of the Duke of Savoy, his cousin.

129. Ludovico De Ludovisiis, Milanese Ambassador in France to Francesco Sforza, Duke of Milan.
The ambassadors of the King of England left in discord, and, as they were passing near Calais, they took some Frenchmen, as if war had broken out between them. This induces the king to remain in Normandy at a place called Zatrono, that is Castelnovo. Messer Albrigo Maleta is lodged at Habevila, about 16 miles away from the king.

130. Francesco Sforza, Duke of Milan to Edward IV, King of England.
Letter of recommendation to his subjects. Pietro Bataglia of Piacenza, and Tomasio Symoneta, who are going to England with goods for the purpose of trading, asking that he will show them favour and promising the like to his own subjects in like case.
Milan, the 22nd November, 1462.

131. Francesco Sforza, Duke of Milan, to Edward IV, King of England.
Request to assist the noble Thomaxo Symonetta, a subject of the duke, and to favour all his causes, so that he may understand that these letters have not been common; as Thomaxo frequently haci occasion to go to England or more particularly to the city of London for purposes of trade, and the duke is attached to him for his own merits and because he is a close relation of Angelo Symonetti, the duke's councillor and secretary. Any favour and assistance afforded by his Majesty will be most grateful to the duke, who is always ready to do his Majesty's good pleasure.
Milan, the 29th November, 1463.

Footnotes

1 The ambassadors of France, England and Burgundy met at St. Omer. Chastellain: Chronique, vol. iv, pages 337, 338. The English ambassadors were the Bishop of Exeter, the Earl of Essex, Lord Wenlok, the Dean of St. Severin, Thomas Wynberbourne, Thomas Kent, Henry Sharp, Louis Galet and Richard Whitehil.—Fœdera, vol. v, pt. ii, pages 115, 116. The commission says nothing about the French. It is remarkable that Louis had made a treaty with Margaret but a very short time before, namely, on the 28th June. Basin: Hist. Lud. XI, ed. Quicherat, vol. ii, page 48n.
