Scantly may I tell with how great curtisie and vertue he was endued. Whe(n) he had professed at Padus the liberall Artes many yeres with no small renowme. He was created by Iulius the second, not onely for hys profound knowledge, but also for the sinceritie of his lyfe, Archbishop of Tuen. When he was traueilyng thitherward, beyng departed from Italy, by reason of the vprores that there were daily encreasing, he ended his lyfe to the great losse of learnyng, before he was full fifty yeres old. He had sundry workes in hand, which he coulde not haue finished by reason of his vntimely death. How dere and entier friendes he and I were one to he other during his life, the letters he addressed me from tyme to tyme, to the number of sixe hundred, thwackt with loue and kyndnesse, do manifestly declare. And by perusing of them after his death (such is ye force of friendship) I am greatly comforted. Thus far Camertes. This Mauritius wrote.
