40. ALMAZAN to KATHARINE, PRINCESS OF WALES
18 May 1509 King Ferdinand, who refused certain demands of Henry VII, knowing that the latter would never marry her to his son, grants to the present King all that he denied to the father. He loves her most of all his children and for her sake considers the King as a son to whom he will communicate all his secrets and from whom he expects equal confidence. The King, the Queen, after confinement, and the Queen Infanta are well. Spain is prosperous. Valladolid, 18 May, 1509.
