997. The Cardinal Amulio to Cardinal Carlo Borromeo.
I only write to your for some purpose, and without ceremony. The other day, in conversation with the Bishop of d'Umblaino, a Scot, sometime your vicar at S. Maria Maggiore and discussing the shooting of the Bastard of Scotland, (fn. 1) I said he ought to have had the armour of Cardinal Borromeo to protect himself. The Bishop said the same idea had occurred to him.
My reason for writing is about my sister from whom I have received much help. I married her before leaving Venice and since then she has had six girls, and although her husband is a fairly wealthy gentleman, yet with this burden she has to look for some advantage. He has some property hired out near your lordship's abbey, and the goods of the abbey are usually let out every three years. He wishes to have one of those locations for three years to traffic for the benefit of himself and others. I know that this would benefit the abbey. The gentleman is a worthy man and a good Catholic.
Rome, the 18th March, 1570.
[Italian.]
