Henry, King of England, on a former occasion, sent the Archduchess Margaret, his aunt, who was at that time governor of his estates, a certain number of auxiliary troops against the rebels of Gueldres, and especially of the town of Venloo. As the Archduchess had no money to pay the troops, the King of England lent her 35,000 scudos. Binds himself to repay the said 35,000 scudos, in instalments of 10,000 scudos a year. The repayment of this debt is to begin as soon as the other debt of 40,000 gold nobles is paid.—Middelburgh the 22nd of July 1517.
