December 1512

Dec. 9. Deliberazioni Senato Secreta, vol. xlv. p. 83, tergo. 209. The Doge and Senate to the Ambassador at the [Papal] Court.
Although the Pope apologizes for his proceedings on the plea of compulsion, do not doubt but that he is well aware how inconsistent his conduct was with rectitude and fairness. The ambassador is to keep the Pope well disposed, and to do the like also with the Cardinals of York, Strigonia, and San Giorgio, and all such others as he shall think fit.
