(Translation.)
40. To his Highness. From Fray Juan de Avila. Last (fn. 1) day of October.
Very mighty and very catholic King and Señor,
What I have at present to write to your Highness from here is that, by the mercy of God our Lord, the Queen, your mother and our lady, is well and in her usual condition. She continues to hear and see mass, in company of the Señora Infanta, every day that she is not in bed or excused by some other evident impediment. The Señora Infanta is well, God be thanked, and kisses the feet and hands of your Highness. By the Marquis and by Beltran your Highness is informed of the kind of chapel her Highness has ordered to be erected in the corridor, in order to have mass celebrated there, and I will therefore not trouble your Highness with these things. The servants of the Queen our lady are much afflicted and quite in despair, because they have learnt that your Highness has ordered some of them to be dismissed. I beseech your Highness to have pity and compassion upon them, as becomes your greatness and magnificence. God Almighty protect your Highness, and increase your royal states in glory and honour, and for His service.
From Tordesillas, last day but one of October.
Very mighty and very catholic lord, your poor friar and chaplain kisses the hands of your Highness.
Fray Juan de Avila. [Sign manual of Fray Juan.]
[Addressed :] To the very mighty and very catholic King and lord, King Don Carlos, our lord.
