471. Erasmo Brascha, Milanese Ambassador in Flanders, to Ludovico Maria Sforza, Duke of Milan.
These last days in England the first man who had this son of King Edward, when he was in England, has run away. Many were taken, including the Bishop of London. His Majesty told me that this man, when he was in England, divulged that this Duke of York was not the son of King Edward, but is the son of the Dowager Duchess of Burgundy and of the Bishop of Cambrai (la maesta del re m' ha detto che costuy, como e stato in Inghilterra, ha divulgato che questo Duca de Yorich non fu fiolo del re Adoardo, ma e fiolo de la Duchessa vechia de Burgogna et del vescovo di Cambray).
His Majesty also told me that the said duke will proceed for the present to Ireland, where he has strong connections, and that island held him for its lord before he went to France, according to what the duke himself told me.

472. Summary of the Letters of the Bishop of Gurk from Augsburg, the 16th May, to Andrea de Burgo.
A decision was taken by his Imperial Majesty and at length they published the ratification of the treaty made by Lady Margaret between his Imperial Majesty and the King of England according to the form of the publication transmitted. That this treaty contains a complete rupture with France and it is thought that a rupture with Caesar, the King of England and the Swiss, who will be the third to invade France, the power of the King of France will be diverted to protect himself, so that Italy will be safe from the French and that the army of the Viceroy and the state of Milan with the remaining powers of Italy will be capable of dealing with the attempts of the Venetians and utterly destroying them, notwithstanding the Venetian and Gallic alliance. That the King of England was making fearsome preparations by sea and land. That on the following day he would send by post Cæsar's letters, which would give further information.
