April 1511

April 12. Deliberazioni Senato Secreta, v. xliv. p. 8. 100. The Doge and Senate to the Ambassador Donato at the [Papal] Court.
Letters of the 9th ultimo, from Adrianople, state how a Florentine merchant, one Thomaso dai Olfi, had been into the presence of the Bashaws, and announced that the Kings of France, Spain, and England, the King of the Romans, and the King of Hungary, had made a league for the ruin of the Venetian Republic, and that the Pope had joined that league. The Signory of Florence, as the great friend of Sultan Bajazet, exhorted him to take his share of the Signory's territory, but the Bashaws gave no credit to the news.
