February 1565

3 Feb. 285. The King to Guzman de Silva.
Your letters of November, December, and 2nd January, will be answered on another occasion. Here I only express my pleasure at the settlement of the question of trade in the way you advise. I am also glad the Queen is so well disposed in all that concerns us, and particularly in providing for the due punishment of the pirates. You will forward it as you are doing, and I am highly satisfied with your care, diligence, and tact.
The queen of Spain is to meet her mother the queen of France at Fonterrabia ; bimply a family meeting of affection. Advise the Queen and others that such is the case.—Madrid, 3rd February 1565.
