I have received your Serenity's letters informing me that the French Ambassador at Constantinople has sequestrated the goods of Paulo Mariani to be found in Egypt, at the instance of the Venetian Ambassador. The first time I have an occasion I will speak to the King on the subject.

News has lately been received that twelve galleons belonging to the Queen of England landed four hundred harquebusseers at Pernambuco in Brazil. They harried the country and sacked a ship belonging to the West India fleet, and made themselves masters of a small fort near Pernambuco. The booty amounts to seven thousand cases of sugar, six thousand hundredweight of pepper, and other goods to the value of about two millions of gold. Many English ships have been sighted off Madeira, and rumours from England affirm that within this month a hundred ships will be ready there.

The twelve Ragusan ships, which the King has hired, have arrived. They will do the provisioning service for the Ocean fleet; and it is firmly believed that the Spanish are going to augment that fleet beyond all expectation, so as to employ it at some favourable moment in another attack on England.
Madrid, 25th June 1595.
