39. FERDINAND, KING OF ARAGON, to KATHARINE, PRINCESS OF WALES. [17/18 May 1509] His joy at the arrangement of her marriage, as learnt by her letters of the 6th. inst. To show how he values the King's friendship, has consented to the marriage of Prince Charles and a treaty of closer alliance.
Sorry to hear what his ambassador has done, who was sent to England to forward her marriage and obey her, and seems to have acted from ignorance. Would send another, but delay is dangerous. She must forgive him and treat him courteously, as he must be present at her wedding. Afterwards he shall be recalled and another sent. Francesco Grimaldo she must also treat courteously, as he is to pay her dower.
