|Oct. 3. Original Despatch, Venetian Archives.||346. Marc' Antonio Barbaro, Venetian Ambassador in France, to the Signory.|
|A few days ago [Sir. Thomas Smith] one of the two English Ambassadors who still remain here was released. (fn. 1) He was not allowed to depart hence, but he was not kept in custody. The other [Throckmorton] is still at St. Germain, strictly guarded.|
|It was also ordered that four of the attendants of the Ambassador who is at liberty might go and return freely to England, with a safe conduct, in order to treat some adjustment, because the navigation of these seas is still impeded by the injuries inflicted by both one side and the other; but hitherto no particulars of any agreement are known.|
