Note 047
From Chapter 66 of the Decline & Fall

Phranzes himself, though from different motives, was of the advice of Amurath (l. ii. c. 13.)

Utinam ne synodus ista unquam fuisset, si tantes offensiones et detrimenta paritura erat.

This Turkish embassy is likewise mentioned by Syropulus (p. 58); and Amurath kept his word. He might threaten (p. 125, 219), but he never attacked, the city.
