Seeing that by thee we enjoy great equietness, and that very worthy deeds are done unto this nation by thy eprovidence, We faccept it always, and in all places, gmost noble Felix, with all thankfulness. Notwithstanding, that I be not further tedious unto thee, I pray thee that thou wouldest hear us of thy hclemency ia few words.

And the Jews also assented, saying that these things were so.
