... and took her a letter which he said the King of England had written. When the Queen read the letter the King took stock of her, saying that a woman may be seen over well when she reads a letter, and the Queen never found out that it was the King because she was so engrossed in reading the letter and she never looked at the King in his squire's dress, who remained on his knees all the time. After the King had gone, Suffolk said, 'Most serene Queen, what do you think of the squire who brought the letter?' The Queen replied, "I did not notice him.' Suffolk remarked, 'Most serene Queen, the person dressed as a squire was the most serene King of England.' And the Queen was vexed at not having known it, because she had kept him on his knees. Afterwards the King wrote to her, and they made great triumphs.
