El conde de Valmarana, our nobleman of the house, has made us understand that due to a certain dispute in Plasencia between Antonio Maria Terzi, count of Sissa, Juan Bautista Apiano de Aragon, Claudio Mazzi, and other knights from Cremona against Antonelo Rosso, in which the said Antonelo allegedly was the aggressor, you have outlawed and confiscated the properties of the said count of Sissa and his associates. Supplicating us to write to you about it, and trusting in the said count of Valmarana's request, as well as the fact that some of the said defendants are vassals and the others are our devoted and loyal followers, we have deemed it appropriate.
We earnestly request that you hear them in their justice, and that you ensure that they are not aggrieved but receive favor and benefit from our respect, as we trust will happen due to the said reasons. We will receive it with great satisfaction if justice allows it [.
