November 1578

20 Nov. 537. Zayas to Bernardino De Mendoza.
I wrote to you by Gombal de Guaras, and as I have no fresh letter from you I now only write to enclose the letters which go herewith, and to inform you that such steps have been taken in these dominions, in Milan, and by the Pope about the alum, in conformity with your information, as I have no doubt will produce the desired effect. In the meanwhile keep your eyes on the matter there, so as to let us know as much about it as possible. Death has been busy with us, and their Majesties are deeply touched at their losses, but are bearing them with Christian resignation.—Madrid, 20th November 1578.
