visitmantua To the Most Illustrious Lady,
our beloved and much honored kinswoman,
we send greetings, wishing you all the best.
In the past days we received a letter from your ladyship, and along with that, six headdresses in silk and gold, which we liked a lot, especially because they were sent with affection by your ladyship.
For these we send many thanks, and we are in debt.
We ask that when your ladyship will design some new form of headstyle - and of course you will, since you are the source and origin of all the beautiful fashions of Italy - you'll send some of them here.
And if your ladyship desire some furs, of the many different animals that we have in this land, please, just let us know: we will send them to you with love, exchanging the generosity that your ladyship have used for us.
From Krakow, June 15th, 1523.
Your ladyship’s cousin,
the Queen of Poland
