Couriers despatched on 11 and 14 May. While finding bills of exchange for the 100,000 sc., his letters of the 8th inst. arrived, showing that he had arranged with the Privy Council for the marriage of the Princess. Does not send the money in cash because if sent by sea it might arrive late, and if sent by land might be taken by the French. Arrangement with Augustin de Vivaldo for payment. Marriage of Prince Charles. The best thing he can do is to forget what has passed between him and the Princess Katharine and work for the speedy conclusion of the marriage. He must not complain of her to anyone in England.

His joy at the arrangement of her marriage, as learnt by her letters of the 6th. inst. To show how he values the King's friendship, has consented to the marriage of Prince Charles and a treaty of closer alliance. Sorry to hear what his ambassador has done, who was sent to England to forward her marriage and obey her, and seems to have acted from ignorance. Would send another, but delay is dangerous. She must forgive him and treat him courteously, as he must be present at her wedding. Afterwards he shall be recalled and another sent. Francesco Grimaldo she must also treat courteously, as he is to pay her dower.

Eras. Ep. [Edit. Allen, I. No. 214.]50. WARHAM to ERASMUS.
Promises him 150 nobles at his arrival if he will come and spend the rest of his life in England.

Eras. Ep. IV. 6. [Edit. Allen, I. No. 215.]
51. [5736.] WM. LORD MOUNTJOY to ERASMUS.
Is assured that he will cease to mourn when he learns that Henricus Octavus, or rather Octavius, has succeeded his father. What may not Erasmus augur of a prince whose admirable disposition is so well known to him—whose friendship he possesses—and from whom Erasmus has received a letter written wholly with his own hand? If he could see how nobly, how wisely, the prince behaves, is sure he would hasten to England. All England is in ecstasies. Extortion is put down—liberality is the order of the day. When the King was saying to Mountjoy, a few days since, he wished he had more learning, Mountjoy told him, this was not expected of him, but that he should patronize learned men. On which Henry replied: "Certainly; we could hardly live without them." Had received two letters from Erasmus, dated Rome, 29th and 30th April; is glad to be consulted, and have an opportunity of removing his anxieties. Advises him to visit England. Instead of being under obligation to Mountjoy, Mountjoy feels he is under obligations to Erasmus he can never repay, for Erasmus has conferred immortality upon him. Has received his Adagia; disowns the liberal compliments with which Erasmus loads him; for who will endure to hear him styled literatissimus? The work is highly commended especially by (Warham) abp. of Canterbury, who sends him 5l. for his journey hither, and promises him a living. Mountjoy adds 5l. more. Is sorry Erasmus did not have his health in Italy; never wished his going there. Incloses a bill for the money. Greenwich, 6 kl. Jun.
