To Sir John Hawkwood, Commander of the White Company, Rome
It pleases me greatly to hear from you. England is and has always been the sworn enemy of France, and the mad Pope in Rome is hardly an appropriate place to start out reconciliation.
However, in the interest of peace and prosperity, and should you be willing to send someone to Savoy, I will be willing to discuss trade between Savoy and England.
Amadeus of Savoy
