Summary

Document on paper, written from Rome and dated October 23, 1521. Contains a letter from cardinal Francesco Armellini de' Medici to Roberto Buschetto, governor of Urbino. Armellini expresses disapproval for the failure by the city of Fano, at the time under Urbino's jurisdiction, to pay the tax on horses for the previous five months. The tax was due to a Constantino, who had perhaps employed Armellini as a debt collector. Armellini also informs Bruschetto that he ordered a high officer of Fano, referred to as vicelegato della Marca, to begin implementing retaliatory strategies to intimidate debtors and coerce them into complying with their fiscal requirements. Shows traces of red wax seal on the back.
