1489. Oct. Sforza Archives, Milan. 947. Gian Galeazzo Sforza, Duke of Milan, to Henry VII.
Alludes to his former letters delivered by Benedetto Spinola, announcing the safe arrival of Magister John Anthony Carbonari, from whom he most gladly heard the King's gracious message. Returns thanks for it, and also for two very staunch hounds born in England, (fn. 1) and such as he desired; with which he was so delighted, that nothing could be more agreeable to him.
Refers himself, for farther assurances of mutual affection, to the verbal statement of Francesco Pagnano, whom he is sending to him as special envoy.
