27 Jan.  121. Francis I. to Marillac.
(Abstract.) On the 23rd inst. the English ambassador came to him, here at La Fere, to complain that Robt. Brancetor, an Englishman arrested at the request of the king of England, was set at liberty; and said that in this Francis had acted against God, reason, and duty, a thing infamous, unjust, and contrary to the treaties. Cannot believe that such words came from the king of England. Marillac shall inform him of them, and ask for the immediate recall of the ambassador, to be replaced by a more prudent and a wiser.
Is in excellent health. Parted with the Emperor on the best terms, and sent the Dauphin, Orleans, and the Constable with him to Cambray and Valentiennes. La Fere sur Oyse, 27 Jan. 1539.
