Have received letters from the ambassador Capello, dated Venzon, a place in the Friuli. The Emperor had at length dismissed him from the imperial territories, and intimated that he did not wish him to go to the King of England to exasperate the latter against France, with whom the Empire is not at war, unless the Signory be first of all at peace with him (the Emperor); with much other unbecoming language, which they think fit to pass over in silence. According to the ambassador's letters, Germany and the princes wish for peace.
