656. The Duke Of Sessa, Imperial Ambassador in Rome, to the Emperor.
Marquis of Pescara.
Letters of the Archbishop of Capua, dated the 11th of May, have arrived. He writes that on his arrival at Blois he found the King of France ready to accept a truce on the former conditions, but very little inclined to conclude a peace, although he already knew of the defeat of his army, which he calls a retreat. The Archbishop went from France to England, asking the Pope to tell him what he was to do there. The Pope answered him (the Archbishop) that if he was hoping to conclude a truce, he ought to go from England to the Imperial court ; if not, he should immediately return to Rome.
The King of France wrote to his ambassador (in Rome) after the defeat of his army was known. He is preparing a new army, and laments nothing but the death of the Captain Bayard. The King of France suspects the Archbishop of Capua, and is afraid he will arrange some new plot against him in England.
The Archbishop of Capua has written that he is very well satisfied with the reception which the King of France has given him.
The nuncio of the Pope who is in England informs the Pope that the King of England has told him he will give the money necessary for the invasion of Provence. Richard Pace was expected in England. He has most probably now arrived, or is perhaps already on his return journey. When the nuncio wrote, the great victory over the French was not yet known in England. More news from England is daily expected in Rome.
His Holiness has not given any more money. Bishopric of Utrecht, &c.
The Infante wants money.
Alberto fears he shall lose the county of Carpi, &c.— Rome, the 4th of June 1524.

659. The Abbot Of Najera to the Emperor.
The Archbishop of Capua has returned to Rome very well satisfied with his embassy. He says that the King of England has promised to send 200,000 ducats for the enterprise on Provence.
The Marquis of Pescara refused to invade France without having received his (the Emperor's) express orders. The Viceroy (of Naples) and other captains, however, have persuaded him not to oppose the invasion of Provence.
Marquis of Mantua, &c.
The Duke of Bourbon feels perfectly sure of victory.
