Miscellaneous 1530

May 16. Parti Secrete, Consiglio X. v. iii. p. 61. tergo. 1082. Divorce Case.
Motion in the Council of Ten and Junta for a communication to be made to the Imperial ambassador.
It is necessary that, as it was carried in this Council on the day before yesterday to communicate to the Imperial ambassador the decree made to write to Padua in the matter of the divorce, there be in like manner communicated to him its execution.
Put to the ballot, that the aforesaid magnifico ambassador being sent for into our College tomorrow morning, the aforesaid decree and its execution be communicated to him by word of mouth, modified in such part as shall seem fit to our College with the intervention of the Chiefs of this Council; he being told besides that as he evinced a wish that the matter should be kept very secret, and most especially with regard to the point of the Signory's prohibition (against giving counsel's opinion in this divorce case) proceeding from the Emperor, they therefore did not think it desirable to proceed further, but to communicate and impart the whole to him.
