From St. John de Luz, June 8. Being a full Account of the Ceremonies of the Marriage.

THe second instant the King of Spain came to Fontarabia; the first ceremony of the Kings Marriage with the Infanta was performed the next day by the Bishop of Pampolona, with the assistance of the Patriarch of the India's, in the Church of that Town, the Ceremonies whereof you had in the last. I shall add only what particulars of consequence that were then omitted. The Bishop of Frojus was there to see the Ceremony, with Two or three hundred French Gen­tlemen, Madamoiselle was there also, but incognito, and went for the waiting Gentlewoman of the Lady No [...]illes, [Page 386] yet the King of Spaines guards had som speciall respect for her, and kept her from being molested by the crowd, dur­ing the Mass. Aafter the reading of the King's Proxy to Don Lewis d' Aro, the renunciation made by the Infanta of any pretensions to the States of Spain was also read, which she then confirmed by an Oath. The rest of the ceremonyes used then were not much differing from the ceremony is used at other mariages, but onely in point of stateliness. It was observed that the Infanta kneeled twice before the King her Father, the first time to ask his blessing, and the second a­fore she gave her consent to the mariage. She did shed teares at first, but soon after she appeared very resolute. The King of Spain who stood covered all the while, took the Ring, as it was agreed the day before, and did put it on his Daughter's finger. The ceremony being ended, the King of Spain shewed her all the respect due to such a Queen, and gave her the right hand, both at the coming out of the Church, and in his owne Coach. He likewise gave her his owne lodgings and took hers; and that new Queen, which as yet had not been seen in publick, dined there publickly in a large room, where Madamoiselle and all the French there rushed in in a croud. When the said Queen had dined, she smiled upon Madamoiselle, and told her she very well knew the unknown Lady whom she called into her owne chamber, and gave her many testimonyes of her affections, after which Mada­moiselle returned hither with much satisfaction. About two a clock in the afternoon, the news of that ce [...]emony was brought to the King, who received it with much joy, as did also the Queen mother, who looks upon that mariage as her owne worke. That night there was a great Ball [...]t our Town­house, where the King daunced first with Madamoiselle; after whom Monsieur the King's Brother took Madamoiselle d' Alencon, and danced with her, the Count d' Armagnac with Madamoiselle de Valois, and other Lords and Gran­dees with the Princess of Baden, the Dutchess of Valenti­nois, and the other Ladyes of the Court, all richly aparelled and adorned with abundance of Jewels. The fourth instant [Page 387] the Duke of Crequi, first Gentleman of the King's chamber, went with a very great and gallant retinue, and abundance of Nobility accompanying him from hence, to carry the pre­sents to the new Queen, the particulars whereof you have hereafter; she received them with all the demonstrations of joy that can be imagined. The Marquis of Vardos com­plimented her likewise in the Kings name as some daies before the Count de Noailles Captaine of the Kings life­guard did.

The same day the Queen mother went to the Isle of the Conference, where she came about 2 a clock in the afternoon, and soon after the King of Spain and the Queen his Daughter with her Ladies of honor, came there in a Galliot, covered, painted within and without, being followed with another wherein was Don Lewis De Haro and several Spanish Gran­dees; after whom came a great number of small Vessels, very gallant, wherein was the rest of the Spanish Court. The shore was full of people, who admired the beauty of that Princess, which was much advantaged by the great quantity of Diamonds that were upon her rich garments. The King of Spain came ashore first, and took the Queen his Daughter by the hand, and conducted her to the very doore of the Chamber of the Conference, where the Queen Mother of France, the Kings brother, and the Cardinal Mazarine were: we hear not as yet what was done at that meeting, but they looked all to bevery well satisfied at their coming out. During their Conference the K: of France was incognito on horse­back, within a musket shot, between a Riv [...]let and a Hill, with the Prince of Conty; and the Counts of Soissons and Armag­nac, and divers other Grandees of the French Court, inten­ding to cross the River that is about the Isle of the Confe­rence, that he might see by the by the new Queen at the Window, with the Queen Mother; but the Kings impatience made him change his design, and he went alone by the doore of the Gallery to the very doore of the Chamber, where he distinctly saw the King of Spain and the new Queeen his Spouse. Don Lewis de Haro and the Cardinal Mazarine, [Page 388] who managed that business, for his Majesties satisfaction, stood by the doore the better to conceal him all the while he was there. His Majesty retired after with much satisfaction, and declared to all that he had found the Queen very hand­some.

Not content to have seen her there, the King went to­wards the shore, where he had a full sight of her going again into the Galliot. From thence the Spanish Court returned to Fontarabia, and their Majesties came likewise hither. The 5 the King sent a Complement to the King and Queen of Spain by Mr. de Ballinghew the first Gentleman of the Horse. The 6 the two Kings met together in Private at the Isle of the Conference; and returned again thither the next day, with their whole Courts. During the whole time of their Interview both the Kings were still [...]ncovered, that the Grandees of Spain might not have occasion to be covered, and both swore the Peace, the most Christian King in the hands of the Bishop of Bayonne, in the presence of Don Lewis de Haro; and the King of Spain in the hands of the Bishop of Pampelona, in the presence of the Cardinal Ma­zarine, who offered to the said King of Spain Mr. de Man­cini for an hostage for the restitution of Roses and the other places, but he refused to take him, saying, That he would have no other assurances for it, but the word of his most Christian Majesty. Then having delivered his Daughter into the Kings hands, the Queen Mother took her in her Coach, and the two Kings pa [...]ted with all the demon­strations of a perfect amity. The new Queen being come to St. John de Luz, had the whole next day, being the 8 Instant, to wipe off her tears, The same the Spanish begun their Journey towards Madrid. The King sent the Marquis de Villequier, to complement the King of Spain before his departure. The 9 the last Ceremony of the Marriage was performed, whereat Cardinal Mazarine discharged the place of grand Almoner; Madamoiselle carried the Taper; and the two Princesses of Alencon and Valois her Sisters caryed the Queens Train, with the Princess of Carignan.

[Page 389]At the Enterview where the two Kings swore the Peace there were only present the Royall persons, the two chief Ministers, and the Secretarys of State of both the Crowns. After the taking of the Oath, the two Kings signed it, and afterwards they imbraced one another. The Guards on both sides gave two Volleys; The French Guards were divided in three Squadrons, the first of the Gensdarmes, the second the Lifeguard, and the third of the light horsemen, and two foot Bataillons, the first of the Kings Musketeers, and the other of the French and Switzer Guards, all in blew Casacks. The Spaniards were in five Squadrons, and a great Bataillon, all in yeallow Coats, with the Spanish Scutcheon before and behind, and St Andrew's Crosse upon the sides.

From Presburgh, May 13, 1660.

The Turks having spoiled all the frontier of Hungary, are come further into the Country, which hath so alarum­ed the Inhabitants, that every one is fled, and even some small Towns are totally deserted, the people having found no better expedient to avoid the cruelty of those Barbari­ans, set all a fire, and burn whatsoever they cannot carry away; yet the Bashaw of Offen, who commands them, doth still profess to be unwilling to undertake any thing against the Emperours Dominions, which is conceived to be out of policy, for fear of be [...]ng obliged to ingage with the Imperial Forces, before he receiveth the supply he is expecting [...] first Visier, which be [...]ng once arrived, [...] will be known, which in [...] he will pe [...]wade us to be only [...].

Danizick, May [...] 1660.

The Swedish forces formerly at Mariemburgh are remo­ved, and are now quartered at Nogat, from whence they will not go, until all their arrears be paid them. Those that were at [...]bing begin also to mutiny; threatning to plunder the Inhab [...]nts, unless they be speedily satisfied. This hath obliged Major Generall Linden to go to Saphor, to acquaint the Swedish Commissioners with it, but they could nor raise yet the 20000 Crowns, though they have offered to give in pawn the Artillery they have here. The said Major General coming this way hath visited the Count of Koningsm [...]k who is not to go from hence until the Duke and Duchess of Curland be at liberty, which will be very speedily. The affairs in Lithuania are still in a very bad posture, and there is a very little likeli­hood to have them easily setled again, if what we hear be true, that the Polish Army hath been totally routed by the [Page 394] Moscovites, who are said to have taken prisoner General Czarnesky who commanded it, and that in consequence of that victory, part of their forces had marched towards Warsow, and the rest towards Prussia, the confirmation whereof is daily expected. In the mean time the people are very much alarumd at this news; it is reported that the Elector of Brandenburgh intends to have all his forces now in Holstein and Meckleburgh, to march this way.

Cronenburgh, May 30. 1660.

The Swedes seeing the obstinacy of those with whom they are treating, to shew their inclination to the peace, sent word lately to the Dutch Ambassadors, that they were willing to quit their pretensions about the 400000 Crowns the King of Denmark was to pay unto them, and even to yeild the Bailiwick of Druntheim, which having obliged the Commissioners to meet again, it is thought that all things will be very speedily concluded; but the ten Swedish Men of War are kept still by Vice Admiral Ruy­ter, who to hinder them to have communication one with the other, hath taken away all their shalops.

Copenbagen, May 31. 1660.

The conferences having been renewed between the Commissioners of both sides, the last project of the Me­diators was propounded for a Treaty betwixt the two Crowns; but when all things were thought to be conclu­ded, the Swedes declared they would not accept of it, but upon such condition, that the places should not be restored till six weeks after the ratification, and that the ten Men of War belonging to them should be presently delivered to them again, without staying for the said ratification. They likevvise propounded some nevv difficulties con­cerning the Treaty of Ell [...]g, but the Dutch Ambassadors [Page 395] told them, that unless vvithin tvvo daies they vvould give their consent to the last Treaty, vvith the explanations ad­ded thereunto, for the immediate restitution of the places after the ratification of the Treaty betvvixt the tvvo Crovvns, and the keeping of the ten Ships until all the dif­ferences vvere ended, the Vice-Admiral Ruyter had order after that time to use hostility against them, which Decla­ration hath so incensed the Swedish Commissioners, that they refused to continue any further that negotiation. Yet after some conferences they had with the Lord Hannibal Seestede, they were so well appeased, that few daies after most of the differences vvere decided, so that it is hoped the Treaty vvill be speedily subscribed, being chiefly grounded upon that of Roschild, and the project made at the Hague.

Berlin, June 1. 1660.

The Elector of Brandenburgh being returned hither tvvo daies since, hath sent his first Gentleman of the horse to the King of England to complement him upon the occa­sion of his happy restoration.

Narbone, June 7. 1660.

Upon the advice come lately to the ships that are at Saint Tropez, that a Turkish brigandine had taken fevv daies be­fore a bark of Genoa, laden vvith vvine and oyl, they sent one of their vessels to pursue the Pycates, vvhom they fought vvith such resolution, that they forced them to a­bandon their prize, vvhich vvas brought back again, vvith about eleven Turks that vvere upon her.

Hamborough, Iune 5. 1660. S. N.

This day we received the joyful news of the peace between the two Northern Crowns, which was not only concluded the 27th of May, but also proclaimed that very day; presently upon which the King of Denmark sent order to the Governour of Gue [...]stad for the publishing of it, and for a cessation of all kind of hostility.
