Feb. 13. Deliberazioni Senato (Secreta), v. lviii. p. 121. 170. The Doge and Senate to the Venetian Ambassador with the Emperor.
By his letters of the 27th ult. are acquainted with what he told the Emperor about the letters sent to him, the ambassador, by the [Signory's] secretary in England, in accordance with the desired good result (tendente a quel bon fine che si desidera). To persevere in this course, as it would be very beneficial to Christendom were it possible to obtain the assistance of the King of England for the expedition; and they are pleased to hear of the offices performed by him with the Legate to this effect. To continue acting thus, as shall appear necessary to him, according to the will of the Emperor, whom he is to assure that whatever his Imperial Majesty has with his usual wisdom done and said has caused the Signory extreme satisfaction, and they hope he will continue doing for the future whatever he shall deem fitting for the attainment of this most important object.
