(Translation.)
33. To his Highness. From the Marquis of Denia. 22nd of June. Received on the 3rd of July.
Very high, very catholic, and very mighty Lord,
I entreat your Highness to inform me of the health of your royal person. May it be always such as your kingdoms and we, your vassals, stand in need of. From here I have to inform your Highness that the Queen our lady, as I have written to your Highness, has improved in eating, in going to bed and rising ; she does it more regularly. As for mass, we are still occupying ourselves in this affair. Her Highness wishes that it be said in the corridor where your Highness met her, and I wish that it be said in a room which is near her chamber, but in the one place or the other it shall be celebrated soon. The Señora Infanta is well, and kisses the hands of your Highness.
It is reported here that your Highness has concerted the marriage of the Infanta Doña Leonor with the King of Portugal. May our Lord grant your Highness to live so many years as to be able to marry your grandchildren and the grandchildren of those ladies. I think, very mighty lord, that your Highness can make use of some of the things which are in the wardrobe of the Queen our lady, and give them to the Señora Infanta. If your Highness approves it, I beg you to let me know, and I shall send a list of them.
I am very sorry that the High Chancellor has died ; for, in addition to his other good qualities, your Highness has lost in him a very loyal servant.
I have written to your Highness begging you to despatch the business of Alonso Cabezas. I beg your Highness to do so ; for any favour shown to him I should receive as though it were done to myself, and moreover he is a person of whom your Highness can make good use. Very mighty lord, our Lord preserve the very royal person of your Highness, and help you with the augmentation of your royal crown.
From Tordesillas, 22nd of June.
Very mighty lord, your Highness' servant and vassal kisses your royal hands.
The Marquis.
[Sign manual of the Marquis of Denia.]
[Addressed :] ... and very catholic and very ... the King our lord.
