431. The Privy Council.
Meeting at Westm., 21 April. Present : Chancellor, Privy Seal, Hertford, Winchester, Westminster, St. John, Cheyney, Gage, Browne, Wingfield, Wriothesley. Business :Three letters sent, to the Deputy of Calais, Wallop and the Surveyor, to apprehend and send hither Thos. Fissher, mason, thought to be in the King's works there. Cobbe, a schoolmaster, charged with translating "a certain postilla upon the Gospels" wherein were seditious and erroneous opinions, was committed to ward; and John Gouge, of London, who had entertained him in his house, bound in a recognisance (cited). John Bell and John Raynolde, licensed to go to sea for reprisals, certified what boats they intended to use, viz., 4 boats of Rye of 20 tons each. Letter written to the customers of London to allow the Staplers's ships to depart, and they should have the privy seal for their discharge with all diligence.
432. The Privy Council to Suffolk.
In answer to his letters of the 17th, the King commands them to signify :1. If there is good matter, and good proof of it, against John Heron and his son, they are to be condemned, according to the law of the realm or of the Borders as may best serve; or, if there is not the requisite proof, further proof must be got, which will be easily had if their doings are as the accusations pretend.
|2. The King is pleased that, for the time, you have appointed Sir Ralph Evers to the governance of Tyndal and Ryddesdal; but, as you wrote before that one man should not rule both countries, and my lord Admiral here declares that Sir Cuthb. Ratcliff is not meet to be deputy warden of the Middle Marches, you shall consider what personages there are most meet for the deputy wardenry and for the offices of Tyndale and Ryddesdale, and what entertainment the keepers of Tyndale and Ryddesdale should have.|
|3. Peter Middleton shall be set, on the market day, upon the pillory with a paper on his head, for his false accusation, and shall have both his ears cut off and be banished the town.|
|4. If there is good proof against George Urde he shall be proceeded against by the law of the land or of the Borders, as may serve best for his condemnation.|
5. If there be no other appointment taken and the prisoners enter at
their day, all the lords and four or five honest gentlemen shall be sent to
the King and the rest bestowed where their pledges be.
Finally, concerning the change of pledges, it was answered long since that, seeing the Governor offered that they should remain or be replaced by better, when he sued for prolonging of their day of entry, it was not thought convenient to alter that determination.
P.S.Sir John Withrington, accused by the Scottishman, is not to be apprehended, but, so that "he should not now make his entry into Scotland," he must arrange with them of Scotland to take another prisoner of equal value or else ransom him; and Suffolk must so open this to him that he suspect nothing but that it is done to retain his services.

435. Sadler to Suffolk.
This morning, Angus prayed him, now that lord Lisle is gone from the Borders, to write to Suffolk for his wages payable on Tuesday (fn. 1) next. Angus said that the Cardinal, Lennox, Argyle, Huntley and Murray do come very strongly to this assembly for the conclusion of matters between the realms, and have been secretly advised by the Governor, who is greatly miscontent with the King's demands, to come as starkly as they can; so that Angus thinks they mean not well to him, his brother, Glencairn, Cassils and the rest of the King's party. He has therefore written to his friends and servants to repair to him, and expects to have in and about this town 6,000 or 7,000 men, and the rest of his party do likewise and will, he thinks, be strong enough for their adversaries. This gathering is very chargeable to him, and though the King allows him 100l. a month he spends 300l. only in retaining gentlemen about him, and therefore he prays Sadler to write not only for his ordinary wages but an advance of 100l. for his relief at this time. Recommends this, and thinks Angus will prove a true gentleman to the King, as also will Glencairn and Cassils.
Has just received the letters from the Council to Angus. What is therein written has been already said and devised. They say they have taken order to prevent the child being stolen from Linlithgow, and by force she cannot be taken away without battle, but they cannot yet obtain her removal to any other stronghold. The Governor is ready to revolt to the other party. Has tried to cause him to savour his danger in trusting to the clergy and that party, and the benefit of conformity with the King's desires; but fears that "all will not help." Begs Suffolk to signify this to the Council. Edinburgh, 21 April. Signed.

448. Sadler to Henry VIII.
Very early this morning, Sir George Douglas came to say that the Governor would surely revolt to the Cardinal, Lennox, Huntley, Argyle and Murray and the clergy, to his own confusion, although Douglas had plainly shown him the danger. The Governor had put away his Friars Preachers (fn. 5) whom he kept to preach the Word of God and had secretly sent to the Cardinal and the rest, who were at the cast of France, and will be all here to-night or to-morrow, to come very strongly. It was time for his brother and the rest of the King's party to look to themselves (and here Douglas seemed somewhat moved that Maxwell was not yet come), and Sadler "should see such a meeting as was never seen at Parliament or Council; for every man is preparing jacks and spears, and if they fight not ere they depart it shall be a great wonder." Douglas expressed concern for Sadler's safety, who replied that he served a master that was able to revenge him and their ambassadors in England should be used as he was. Douglas advised him to write that the ambassadors might not depart (for they had written plainly that they were "out of hope of agreement"), and, as the Governor was finding fault with Sadler's servants posting in and out to Berwick, to write henceforth in cipher. Douglas said he had laboured to bring things to pass peaceably; but, as that would not be, if the King would send his royal army and stick to his poor servants and friends here, which else shall be undone, his brother and he, with Glencairn, Cassils, Maxwell and their friends, will deliver the King the whole country on this side Forth this summer. In which case the King must preserve it from burning and spoiling, and make proclamations to defend such as submit, and so both to win the people's hearts and have victuals for the garrisons which must remain in winter to guard the conquest made this summer. This assembly would make answer to the King; and if they sent him (Douglas) he would not refuse, because thereby he might have commodity to declare the state of the country and his advice for its conquest. Asked if the Governor would not grow to any reasonable point in the satisfaction of the King's demands; and Douglas answered that the Governor was so fickle and inconstant that he dare promise nothing of him, and now, revolting to the other party who were all French, he would agree to nothing against France; and they would never grant the delivery of the child until of lawful age, and could scarcely get such pledges as were meet to be accepted. "The abbot of Paisley," says Douglas, "hath been the only cause of the Governor's alteration, which abbot is all for France and the Cardinal's great friend, and since his coming home the Governor hath been altogether ruled by him." Edinburgh, 22 April. Signed.

449. Edmond Harvel to Henry VIII.
Wrote on the 8th. Letters from Andronopoly of 26 March affirm that the Turk's host sets forward for Hungary on the 15th inst., and the Turk follows on the morrow after St. George's Day. The Turks never before assembled so great a power. Their chief power will invade Austria, but four or five sanjakes with 30,000 or 40,000 horse will invade Slovania, Carinthia and other countries confining upon the Friuly. Many rowers having fled to the mountains, some think the Turk's navy shall be less than was divulged; but others think it has been preparing too long to come abroad feeble. Polin comes hither from the Turk's Court. Mostafa, the Turk's eldest son, shall marry a daughter of the Great Tartar. Here it is divulged that the Queen of Hungary and Friar George, with all Transylvania, have joined the Turk, and the rest of Hungary will follow, "which should turn evil to Ferdinando." The Bishop of Rome shall be sumptuously received this day in Ferrara by the Duke, who is noted openly French. The Bishop expected to be invited hither, but the Signory have no money to spend vainly. He has been practising to win this Signory to his devotion, but they are wonderfully circumspect. Thinks he fears the Emperor and mistrusts his own subjects. Part of his treasure is said to be here. Andrea Doria departed on the 7th to Spain with 47 galleys. The Emperor arrives in Italy "by all th' instant or x. of May at farthest." The French report peace between Henry and their King, but men here believe and hope for the contrary. Venice, 22 April, 1543.
P.S.By letters from Noremberg of the 12th, the Diet shall end without "resolution of accord." It is divulged that Henry has concluded a new league with the Emperor; to the terror of the French and Popish part and joy of the rest of Christendom. "These men seemeth to slack the sending out of their general for these last advertisements from Constantinople." Cortemiglia in Piemont has been induced by its Spanish captain to rebel against Guasto.

455. Henry VIII. to Sadler.
Has received his of the 19th and 20th inst., describing conferences with the Governor, Anguishe, Glencarn, Casselles and Douglas, and makes answer as follows :
1. Marvels at Douglas's "impudencye" in denying both his oath and promise made at Abingdon and the words he spake at his last departure northwards; and, albeit the time is not expedient for the King to show himself discontented with this and Douglas's proceedings in Scotland, this last denial of his "duty, promise and allegiance" must not pass unanswered. Sadler shall take opportunity to renew the subject, and to express surprise at his so speaking, "considering the apparent truth thereof to the contrary and how much more he is bound unto us than any other." Any indifferent man who knows in what condition George Douglas stood when that promise was made at Abingdon would judge that the King would never have entertained him if he had, so arrogantly as he now says, refused his service. Little cause he had to be, either then or afterwards, of so arrogant sort; for all England and Scotland know that, if his doings had not more provoked the King of Scots than his brother's did, their grace might have been obtained. "Yea and his brother's restitution might easily have been obtained, with his deliverance to have abiden justice !" To taste him of a later time, he is to be asked whether he did not require to be described as the King's subject when he went into France to declare himself against the Cardinal. Which if he confess, he cannot say that he made no such promise; and if he deny, the letters then written for him to the French king may convince him. At his last going, it is true that, in Windsor park, the King had such words with him as he repeats; but, Sadler may tell him, at another time, in riding towards a lodge besides Foly John park near Windsor, what he said to the King his own brother can testify, "by this token that they both showed unto us at the same instant one of the strongest thieves of Scotland to be there present, whom, at their request, we caused then, immediately, to be apprehended." Also his letters to the Admiral that now is and other officers of the Borders will declare what he has promised and how much more bounden he is than the rest. Sadler may say that he expresses this the more plainly in order that Douglas may rather bend himself to serve truly than with fond words to deface beforehand all the service he can possibly do.
2. Where Glencarne, speaking frankly of his intent to serve with
Anguishe and Casselles, desires to know whether the prisoners shall enter
at their day, promising to resist the young Queen's removal, doubting not
to be able to hold the town of Edinburgh maugre the Governor, &c.;
Sadler shall give the King's thanks to Glencarne and the foresaid earls,
assuring them that, on the accomplishment of the King's purpose, "they
and all their posterities shall have cause to confess that they serve a most
gracious master." The day of entry for all the lords assured to the King's
part shall be enlarged to Midsummer, in order that they may meanwhile
keep themselves in force; and for their relief in this Sadler shall tell the
lords assured to the King that, like as Glynkern and Casselles are each
appointed 300 mks., 500l. has been sent to Edw. Shelley at Barwik and
500l. to Sir Thos. Wharton at Carlisle, portions of which shall be delivered,
upon Sadler's letters,to any of those lords; foreseeing ever that Glencarn
and Casselles have each 300 mks., and the rest more or less, as seems meet,
provided that the whole exceed not 1,000l. If they demand what
Anguishe has, Sadler shall reply that the King is good to him otherwise
(as Sadler knows, whose last letters to Suffolk in Anguishe's favour are
also satisfied); animating them by the hope of benefits in time coming
and by the promise of assistance. Further he shall desire the foresaid
earls and Maxwell and Somervile, as men whom the King specially trusts,
to send their advice where the King should enter by land and by sea, and
to what places direct his armies; but shall require them to keep this point
absolutely secret. This he shall specially "inculce" to Glencarn apart,
that he may perceive how thankfully his proceedings are accepted. To
George Douglas he shall make good semblance, but give no knowledge by
which he might hinder the King's enterprise. He shall charge the rest to
keep "the very secrets of their hearts" from all persons other than such
as they may entrust with their lives; and, if necessary, warn them of
George Douglas. If Glencarn repeats his instance to have his son and
Maxwell's, home, Sadler shall say that the King "could have been content
therewith long since," but perceives that Maxwell's son is not of his
father's disposition. He shall also tell Maxwell frankly to remain in
Scotland and give no faith to his son, who has plainly said that if his
father took the King's part "he should not have ten persons with him."
(fn. 6) If the Governor be not too far swerved from the King, Sadler shall repair to him and say "Sir, what will you do? Will you now wilfully cast yourself away? Can you think otherwise but that the clergy, knowing your opinion as they do, will seek all the ways they can possible for your destruction, though they give you now fair words to get their foot in the bushel? Or can you think that you shall continue a Governor when th'adverse party, that would have made themselves by a forged will regents with you, or rather excluded you, shall have authority, but you shall so be governed and compelled to do their wills as finally you shall, whether you will or no, work your own confusion?" And (words prescribed) remind him of the King's power to destroy or promote him.
Sadler shall of himself taste the Earl Bothwell and the lord Flemyng, to see whether now they are any faster to the King's party, giving them fair words; but nowise opening to them any secrets without advice of Anguishe, Glencarn, Cassells, Maxwell and Somervile, who are to be told that, in case they need present aid, 5,000 or 6,000 shall within a month be landed at Edinburgh, so as they keep the town and foresee that they be masters of Lithe and provide some victual there. Ships and men are put in order to set forth within 4 or 5 days after the King hears from them. Sadler shall also tell them that, if horsemen may serve, lord Parre, who is appointed warden of the Marches, is commanded, upon word from Sadler, to send in as many horsemen as required; and the said warden shall be despatched in post to the Borders within two days. And "for the present aid" Sadler should draw an article of their resolution and cause them to sign it, and send it hither.
