December 1532

I have arrived in England on behalf of  Your Most Gracious and Worthy Majesty, François Ier King of France. This country, though bountiful in vast stretches of land and greenery,  offers little in respite from the bitter cold; which I honestly confess diminishes any personal enjoyment I may earn during this trip.

The travel from France to England was as smooth as glass. I thank Your Majesty for your generosity provided during the journey and now my stay in England.

The English court is magnificent, ablaze with colour and style. The tapestries are even finer than the silks and satins the courtiers are shrouded in. The structure is robust and sound-it is clear the efforts ensured by The English King to preserve this palace. Needless to say-the pearl of France is incomparable to any European court. Our country is boundless in it’s beauties and charm. As for my living arrangements, they are comfortable and grander than I deserve. I thank Your Majesty, most humbly.

I have met with The King of England on your request and behalf. As your Majesty will be aware; he is a  commanding fellow, tall in height and strong of build. He displayed the finest array of jewels and best of garb at the banquet at which I was permitted audience. He was satisfied with the arrangements being made for his and the Lady Anne Boleyn’s visit.
As for this fair lady; she is a queen among paupers in all but title. She carries herself with greatest of grace, I am sure-schooled to her during her time in our good land of France. His Majesty is utterly besotted with the woman. No doubt, her beauty will pale into insignificance when she is near Our Most Great Queen of France, for no greater Queen has lived.

I thank Your Majesty, most profoundly, for the honour you have bestowed upon me by this visit. I am entirely unworthy of this privilege but it is my hearts own delight that Your Majesty should entrust me with this worthy responsibility.

I pledge you now, as ever, from hence forth and till my death-unwavering fealty and loyalty,

Your Humble Servant,

Louis Castillon
