Owing to the great expense of my journeys with the Emperor, especially in these wars, I have fallen in debt, and have been forced to charge Tuke, by money taken in exchange, with as much as my half year's diets at next Lady Day. I beseech you to command Mykelowe to advance it to him. Remembering your desire for hangings, I have seen the merchant who showed you two pieces, and he has shown me "all the remnant of such history, according to a bill enclosed, which is esteemed the fairest that ever was made. The price mentioned is 4l. Flemish the ell, but being in necessity he will abate it. If you wish to have it, means might be found to pay for it out of the money due to you here for your pensions. Brussels, 16 Feb. 1521.

Trusted he would have been informed by Sir Anthony Ughtred, captain of Berwick, of the malicious intentions of the duke of Albany. The circuit of Berwick is about two miles, including the castle. The King knows the number of the soldiers; and as to the inhabitants, the town cannot raise 200 men, who, with the soldiers, will make fifty (fn. 1) hundred men, which is not more than a fourth of the necessary strength in case of an assault. The ordnance is sufficient, but a master of the ordnance is wanted, the King having given that place to Wm. Pawne. Berwick. 18 Feb.

It was 4 o'clock p.m. this day before Bainbrig had his despatch; and though my Lady has written her mind to you by him, she desired me to say she would send a servant of her own immediately, who would satisfy you in everything mentioned in the last article of her letter sent by Bainbrig. She thanks you heartily for your efforts to promote peace between the Emperor and her son, which is the thing she most desires after the amity with England, and said you would soon see that her son trusted the King and you above all princes. I think they really mean to give the ordering of everything to the King and you. "And, moreover, she said that, rather than this good amity should break, she had liever never to see the King her son whiles she liveth; which word she spake with a sorrowful countenance, for I ensure your grace that the waters stood in her eyes." She trusted it would not be hindered by me. I said I could not greatly hinder or further it, but I should be sorry to hinder it, and should deserve no thanks of either party for doing so. My Lady told me there was an ambassador sent out of England into Switzerland. I said I knew of none, and if there were any there, I was sure it was not to do anything against Francis. She said the Admiral would write to you about it, "praying me that I would not be a knowen as yet." On Saturday, Francis sat in the parliament house, among the com[mons] of Paris, for the declaration of the confiscation of the county of F[landers], and in the afternoon with his privy council, where he was told by a man of great esteem that the marriage was made between the Emperor and my lady Princess. Who the informant was, I was not told. No one has spoken to me of the matter yet.
The [court] remain here, it is said, only till the arrival of the ambassadors from the Swiss to christen the count of Angoulême, after which the King, Queen, and my Lady go to Amboise to see his children, and from that he goes to Lyons. Was told by the duke of Guise that 100 horse and 500 foot of the Burgundians intended to have stolen a little town and castle of his, called Guise, but the [warden] of the castle, hearing of it, sent 60 horse and 100 foot, who attacked the Burgundians and slew viij... out of hand, and took 60 prisoners, [without losing] more than 12 men, who were taken prisoners or quartered by the Burgundians. There is nothing favorable to them but they tell it me at once; anything adverse they keep secret. I hear that marshal Chatillon has gone into High Burgundy to [punish] 3,000 adventurers who rob and spoil the country. Alençon is going to Normandy to see the towns fortified and victualled, as the duke of Vendome, Mons. de ... and St. Pol have done in Picardy. They say the duke of Urbino has recovered all his duchy, and won the town of Seynes. I have written a short letter to the King. St. Germain's, 18 Feb. Signed.

Had written to advertise him, by John Raye, messenger of Berwick, of the need of 200 soldiers. Albany has brought 24 pieces of artillery, as Clarencieux can inform him, within 18 miles. Begs a letter may be sent to Darcy, that he (Ughtred) may have 200 archers out of the forest of Kna[resborough]h. The rest, making a total of 500, he will obtain from Yorkshire. Desires money.

I was delighted with your letters, from which I perceived your unchanged love to me, and your desire to improve in learning. I will do all I can to assist you, but there is no need for me to write to J. Watson, as you wish, to ask him to teach you Greek, as he will be here before long, and we can then speak of the matter.

Of the five messengers sent to the Pope, three that went by land are said to have been detained in France; the one by sea was driven back into Civita Vecchia, said ten days, went to sea, was in danger of the Moors, "and so beaten with them" came to Italy, and was at last driven into Nice, which he dared not leave on account of the French, who keep all these quarters with much diligence. Nothing has been heard of the fifth, and no news to or from the Pope. It is supposed he will go by England, as that is the safest way. The merchants from Lyons write that he is dead. If he die before his election, the next election "shall not be in loco quo [mortuus est], sed hic Romœ, seeing the court is not otherwise tran[sferable]; which thing was determined by a special provision made per Clementem Papam Quintum." The imperial ambassador here has stated that the Emperor has written to the Pope to come hither; so he is shortly expected. The legates are not yet ready to leave. The French report that 20,000 Swiss are on their road to Milan. It will be hard for the French to conduct them, as they have promised to meet them with 600 spears, and other conditions not easily kept. Arrangements at Milan for defence. The arrival of the King's servant among the Swiss has been of great service. Rome, 22 Feb. 1522. Signed.

Wrote last from Brussels on the 22nd. Having no news from England by the post this day, have no good pretext for making inquiries. Were told by the Chancellor today at dinner, that the Emperor had received news from Trent of a band of lanceknights having passed through the Grisons towards Milan, and that on the 16th the duke of Milan left Trent with 10,000 more lanceknights, hoping to arrive at Milan before them. The Milanese are determined to resist. They have 14,000 men of war in wages, and have sent the Swiss word of the cruelties and extortions perpetrated by the French, hoping for their protection. Judge from the Chancellor's words, and otherwise, that the French fail [not] to practise for a treaty with the Emperor, although they pretend the contrary. The abbot of St. Anthony de Vienne in Dauphiny, who is not only a Frenchman born and beneficed there, but also is governor of Lorraine, is come hither as the Duke's ambassador. He is supposed to be a spy, or to have some privy practice, and is very familiar with the provost of Utrecht. Yesterday the Emperor and his brother, with a party of twenty, all arrayed in cloth without any manner of silk or cloth of gold, played at the "jeu des cannes," in which the Emperor "showed himself to be by himself, of that company on horseback." Today he went to church to receive the pardon appropriate to the day of his nativity, heard high mass and a sermon, and rode to Malines to appoint artillery for the ships and for the frontiers.

2068. DACRE to WOLSEY.
Received his letter on the 25th, dated from Westminster, 15 Feb., desiring that the garrison of 500 should remain together. The King promises rewards at Dacre's discretion to such gentlemen on the Marches as are ready to serve; and that the bp. of Carlisle shall be sent down with money for that purpose. The only place for the garrison is on the East Marches, which will follow no counsel for helping themselves. Proposes to place them in Wark, which is unfurnished with beds; at Wowller and at Duddington. Sir Will. Bulmer to lie, at Ford and Etell. Begs to decline apportioning the rewards. Wishes the bp. of Carlisle to come straight to Alnwick, where Dacre will meet him. Expects that Albany will come shortly into the Marches, for the destruction of the Homes. They are content that of their houses within four miles of the Marches, the strong be kept, and the weak pulled down;—are willing to put Englishmen in them. They will surrender Coldingham, always a great nuisance to Berwick, and a cell to the abbey of Durham. Dacre proposes to destroy every stone of it. The Homes require the King's letters as their security. Would lie twenty days fast bound in irons, both foot and hand, to have the bp. of Carlisle and the garrisons here now. Albany has prorogued the parliament till the 11th April, and intends to remove the King to Stirling. The lords of Scotland will have no war. "In the Firthe ther is 2 sheps redye in deking, and the Duke maiking hollis law by the watter, lying great peace of ordinance in them." Has a merchant of London lying at Leith with a safeconduct from the Duke. Norham Castle, 26 Feb. Signed.

Wrote last on the 24th from Brussels. Last night were sent for by my Lady, who told us, in presence of the bishop of Valencia and Hoowstrate, that the Emperor, learning at his departure to Malines that a post had come from England, had ordered us to be spoken with. She then asked if we had received any charge by that post, and, being told that we had no letters, ordered her Chancellor to tell us that the Emperor was informed by his ambassadors that the King had granted half his request; that his majesty would take this thankfully, although it was very necessary for the common purpose that the whole should be provided for; that the Emperor's letters patent of requirement were presented to the King, and that you then protested you did not intend the King to be bound further than is expressed in the treaty of Bruges, but he doubted not you would see, upon reconsideration, that the matter was so clear in both treaties that the last could not invalidate the first. He also showed the good hope entertained by the King and you of making a truce between the Emperor and the French, which was delayed for want of a sufficient number of personages on the French side, in consequence of the death of Bastie, and by the insufficiency, on the other hand, of the Emperor's commission, made in pope Leo's time. A new commission and personages had been sent for to France; and, for the Emperor's part, the commission was drawn up already, and would be despatched with diligence. The Chancellor added that the Emperor would be much pleased on learning that the King had offered to send ambassadors to Spain to induce the Emperor's subjects to be obedient, and to wait his coming, which may be delayed by causes touching his honor. He then gave us the enclosed news, and said the Emperor had desired to know our advice "as being incorporate of his council."
Wingfield then stood up, and in the name of himself and colleague thanked the Emperor for his confidence. Hoped the Emperor would remember the expense the King incurred whenever he went to war, having to defend every corner of his realm against his enemies, while other princes had some corners free. That as to the second point, though we were privy to the treaty of Bruges, we were not privy to the former treaty, and could not but think your protest well founded. That we were glad to know the truce was in good train, and were sure the King and Wolsey regretted that it had not been framed sooner, and that the Emperor might be sure the King would be glad to gratify him by sending ambassadors to Spain. Being asked our advice upon the news from Italy, we said they appeared to have more need of prompt help than of our counsel, being much inexpert. Alemand, the Emperor's secretary, told Spinelly today that the abbot of Vienne, in Dauphiny, who is now here as ambassador from the duke of Lorraine, came principally to negotiate a peace with France, but they merely beat the wind.

Today, the 25th, the ambassador of Ferar and I went to the court together. He told me that the sons of the signor John Paul Baglyone entered Perosse by force, and repulsed the Florentines who were sent against them; that Laurence de Syre, Camille Ursin, the sons of Baglyone and the duke of Urbino had entered the French king's service; that the cardinal De Medici and the signory of Florence were also treating with Francis, and that he expected every day to hear of the recovery of the duchy of Milan, near which the Swiss were by this time. When I came to the French king I told him I heard he had more servants in Italy than he was wont to have, and related the news without naming my informant. He said it was all true, and that all the lords of Italy to the kingdom of Naples were for him, except Prosper Colonna and the marquis of Mantua; and as for Prosper Colonna, he had his nephew, Mark Antony, whom he reckoned the best of the Colonnas; that the bridge made by the Spaniards over the Po was broken and brought to Cremona by the French, who had slain 400 or 500 of the marquis of Mantua's band, and there was not a Spaniard in Milan at this hour. I said you would be glad to hear he had recovered his duchy. He said not yet, for the Spaniards were not out of the duchy, but had retreated to Pavia and Placentia. Robert de la Marche and his wife are here. I cannot tell what they have come for. This is the sixth letter I have written to you, but have no word whether they have reached your hands, which makes me anxious as to what has become of your letters, and of two of mine, sent by post. The ambassadors of the Swiss are [come] to christen the count of Angouleme tomorrow. Am told the French king intends to send you hawks, both for the kite and for the hay[ron]. St. Germain's, 26 Feb.
