|Christopher Munt to the Same.|
|1568–9, Feb. 10.||
I last wrote on the 27th of January.
On the 7th of February John William, Duke of Saxony, crossed
the Rhine with 3,000 horse, and is marching straight into
France. The Rhinegrave also, and the other masters of the
horse, who have raised as many as 2,000 horse in the Bishoprics
of Treves and Mayence, also hasten to the King. Where
Condé is with his forces, and what they are at, we know not
for certain, for the ways are long and perilous. The compact
of Fulda yet holds, at any rate up to now; we do not know
what is doing there. There is a report that the empire is sending
an embassy to compose the war in France, but there will, it
seems, be more delay than is good. The Bavarian marriage
will take place very shortly. The mother and the bride
went last week to Bavaria. It is said the emperor's brothers
will be present and the other princes. This marriage of
Bavaria to the lady of Lorraine, will it is thought lead to others:
namely one between the King of France himself and the
Emperor's second daughter. The Bishop of Rennes certainly
moved in the matter in the meetings at Augsburg (Comitiis
Augustanis), and this is thought to be the reason for the
Emperor's slackness for recovering the lands wrested from
the empire. Their restoration would be a like case to that
of Cales. The sword is the best prayer to win a boon from
a king.—Argentina, 10 February, ao 68.

|The President of the North and the Earl of Northumberland.|
|[Before 1569, Nov.]||
Brief of uncourteous dealings of the
Lord President of the North against the Earl of Northumberland. More than twelve months past the Earl was forced to
seek redress of the Council against the President. He was
advised by some of them, for the quiet of the country, to
welcome the President home on his return from London with
courteous words. This he did, yet the President not only
continued his former froward dealings, but charged the Earl
to be a maintainer of Papistry. The Earl, as the steward of
the liberties of Richmondshire, guardian of the Queen's forests,
chases and parks, and master of her game, has had discretion
to punish offences therein: but this discretion being now taken
away by the President, the game is wasted, the country in
less good order. As instances, particulars are given of the
cases of Mathew Metcalf, a late keeper of Raydell: of two
brothers Harrison, who detained a ward's property: and
of William Gowerley and Thomas Gelderde, committed to
Middleham Castle for killing does in Wanlans Park: in all
which cases the Earl's authority was overridden by the President.—Undated.
