1536. Oct. 27. Despatches, Venetian Archives, File no. 4 B. 123. Lorenzo Bragadino, Venetian Ambassador at Rome, to the Signory.
The Bishop of Verona [Gian Matteo Giberti] requests the Republic to exempt him from payment of the tenths, according to the tenor of the brief conceded by the present Pope, by so much the more, as the little he possesses is all employed for the benefit of persons truly poor, the amount however being now small, as he has lost 5,000 ducats annual revenue, from his resignation of the bishopric in France, and through the loss of other benefices in England.
Rome, 27th October,
