March 1583

March 4. Original Despatch, Venetian Archives. 122. Giovanni Moro, Venetian Ambassador in France, to the Doge and Senate.
Monsieur D'Aubigny, otherwise called Duke of Lennox, he who was of such authority with the King of Scotland, before he was arrested, left Scotland with a passport for England, and reached Paris a few days ago. I do not learn, however, that his departure has helped the King at all; he is always surrounded by those who keep him in a kind of custody, although he is allowed to move freely from place to place in their company. The affairs of the kingdom are conducted in his name, but in obedience to the wishes of those in power.
Paris, 4th March, 1583.
March 18. Original Despatch, Venetian Archives. 123. Giovanni Moro, Venetian Ambassador in France, to the Doge and Senate.
Don Antonio is at Dieppe, where his affairs move very slowly, although some artillery has been furnished from the arsenal here, for the Azores; and they are founding more.
Paris, 18th March 1583.
