-, -, Chapuys' fresh representations against the exemption of (June 1543), 362.

-, -, urgent request of the privy councillors for the unconditional exemption, and consequent release, of the goods previously confiscated, ibid.

-, -, -, the merchants of England (they say) would rather prefer to pay double the amount of the tax, than have their vessels visited, ibid.
