Warns him against two English spies in France, named Hay Walter, who was page to the earl of Northumberland, and George Cotton. Much care must be taken of such folks. Tell the Duke de Mayenne what we hear about these men ; let him look at their hands and serve them as they deserve, for the times make it necessary that all precautions should be taken.—San Lorenzo, 1591.
Note.—Juan Baptista de Tassis and the duke of Parma are written to, to the same effect. These men and others of the same sort, must be followed up until they are caught.
