May 1583

9. The Duke of Anjou to the Queen.
[1583 ?] May 20/30. The news which he has just received, confirming so absolutely all preceding advices, constrain him with all the regret in the world to throw himself on her Majesty's favour, beseeching her to remember what it has pleased her to promise and contract with him. The bearer is fully instructed as to the state of his affairs, and is expressly commanded to explain them to her Majesty, if his so doing should not appear to her to be importunate.—Dunkirk, 30 May
