Has understood from Messer Raymondo that his Highness is content with his service. Thanks God this is so, as has no other desire in the world than to please him as is the nature of every good Spinola. Will give every advice and assistance to M. Raymondo on his return.

470. I sent Messer Aloisio de Ala to accompany the ambassador of England for some distance beyond the town, to show him honour, according to the instructions of your Excellency. In reply to various questions the ambassador said: This Prince of Orange is still a boy and yet under his tutor. Some of his followers said that he had been chosen as captain by the King of France, but that he had not yet any money. He also said that the King of France had asked the King of England for some help in troops, and had been refused. He said that his king would take the success of the King of France in Italy as causing him more displeasure than almost anything, and in order to put a stop to any such thing, if others did not resist it, he would like to oppose him with all the forces he possessed. He remarked that it was said the King of Spain was ready to declare war on the King of France, feeling doubtful of the King of England, and in order to remove that doubt he sent him an ambassador offering to negotiate for a marriage alliance between their Majesties. He said finally that no men-at-arms appeared, although it was murmured that some were coming.
