306. Juan Manuel, Imperial Ambassador in Rome, to the Emperor.
Has received his letters dated the 17th of October, which arrived by the Neapolitan post. Went to the Pope, and found that he was already informed of the contents of his despatches. Has in his former letters expressed his wish that on matters which concern his embassy the Pope should not be informed by any one but him. Repeats this request.
The Pope is dissatisfied with the news from the Imperial court, and sent for the French ambassador, who strongly recommended to him the alliance with France. Spoke, however, afterwards with the Pope, who assured him that he would not give up the alliance (with the Emperor and the King of England).
The Pope sends full power to his nuncio at the Imperial court, and writes to his nuncio in England ordering him to tell the Cardinal to use his influence in order to bring about an intimate friendship between the Apostolic See, the Emperor, and the King of England. His Holiness asks the King of England to pay the Swiss his own portion, as well as the quotas of the Pope and the Emperor, and to invade France as soon as the King of France attacks the Holy See, or any of the Imperial dominions.
Is still afraid that the Pope is reconciling himself with the French, as the "Frenchman" holds up before his mind's eye the enterprise of Naples, which is very tempting. There are a great many candidates for the crown of Naples, Italians as well as others who are not Italians.
The duplicate of the bull which is to be sent to the Legate of England does not go by this post. It must first be presented to the Pope, and then taken to the Chancellery, where the leaden seal will be affixed. The next post will bring the bull.—Rome, the 3rd of November 1520.
Addressed : "To the Cœsar and King of Spain, &c."
Indorsed : "To the King. Rome. From Juan Manuel, the 3rd of November 1520."
Spanish. Autograph in cipher. Contemporary deciphering. pp. 4.

307. Juan Manuel, Imperial Ambassador in Rome, to the Emperor.
The Pope, tired of the delays and suspicions of his (the Emperor's) intentions, has changed his mind, and is no longer willing to conclude the league (between the Pope, the Emperor, and the King of England). It is probable that the Pope will write to him that he still desires the alliance, but he knows very well that such is not the case.
When the news of his coronation at Aix arrived the Pope was the only one who did not show signs of joy.—Rome, the 9th of November 1520.
Addressed : "To the Cœsar and King of Spain, our sovereign Lord."
Indorsed : "To the King, from Don Juan Manuel, the 9th of November."
Spanish. Autograph in cipher. Contemporary deciphering. pp. 1½.

308. Pope Leo X. to the Emperor.
Congratulates him on his coronation.
As there are two luminaries in the heavens, the sun and the moon, which outshine all the stars, so are there two great dignitaries on earth, the Pope and the Emperor, to whom all other princes are subordinate and owe obedience.
Admonishes him to be a good son of the Church, and to restore peace to Christendom.—Corneto, the 14th of November, the 8th year of his Pontificate.
Addressed : "To our most beloved son Charles, Catholic King of the Romans and of Spain, Emperor elect."
Indorsed : "The 14th of November. On the coronation."
Original brief. Written on one sheet of parchment.

309. Juan Manuel, Imperial Ambassador in Rome, to the Emperor.
Is told that the Pope is inclined to conclude the alliance (with the Emperor and the King of England). Is, however, afraid that his informants are deceiving him.
The Seigneur of Carpi is in Rome. He is a French partisan, and in favour with the Pope, who likes him, because he thinks that he is an enemy of the Duke of Ferrara.—Rome, the 14th of November 1520.
Addressed : "To the Cœsar and King of Spain, our sovereign Lord."
Indorsed : "To the King, from Don Juan Manuel, the 14th of November 1520."
Spanish. Autograph in cipher. Contemporary deciphering. pp. 3.

310. Juan Manuel, Imperial Ambassador in Rome, to the Emperor.
His affairs are taking a bad turn in Rome. The Pope seems to have quite forgotten the alliance (with the Emperor and the King of England), and to be willing to conclude an alliance with the King of France, who offers to give him the property of his neighbours.
Intends to go and speak with the Pope, who is entirely given up to the pleasure of hunting, and does not care to be troubled with politics.—Rome, the 20th of November 1520.
Addressed : "To the Cœsar and King of Spain, our sovereign Lord."
Indorsed : "To the King, from Don Juan Manuel, the 20th of November 1520."
