Returned him his flagon with some clumsy verses. The carrier (auriga) says he gave it to More as Ammonius was away at the time. Will visit London on 1st January, for he would rather spend summer than winter at Cambridge; and it is not expedient he should be too far from his Jupiter. (fn. 1) Sees some hope of gain, if he can play the busybody. Wishes to know how the bishops of Winchester and Durham received his letters. Begs him to enclose his letters in the packet for Italy. Thinks his prayers have been heard who invited the streams, fountains, lakes, and deeps to weep for Italy. "Ημας λυκος ειδε προτερος ut nutibus sit loquendum tanta est raucedo." Cambridge, 4 Non.

933. [1948.] AMMONIUS to ERASMUS.
Either his messenger is specially unfortunate, or the yokels of Cambridge exceed in barbarism "those inhospitable Britons." They know not what it is to carry a letter and not deliver it. They don't know that often the salvation of more than one man depends on a single letter. As soon as he had received the letter of Erasmus, he sate down to answer it. He paid the porter, and sent with his reply another flagon of Greek wine (Grœcanici lagenam); learns that his letter has miscarried; oh, the monsters! If the wine is drunk, hopes Erasmus will recover the bottle. Presented the letters he sent to the Bishops of Winchester and Durham, who were delighted. Winchester complains that Erasmus makes himself a complete stranger. Ammonius offered the best apology in his power. Your Mæcenas (Mountjoy ?) has been in the city (urbanus) three days. It rains day and night. The plague has somewhat abated, but a famine is dreaded. Is not astonished that wood is so dear and scarce; the heretics cause so many holocausts, and yet their numbers grow. The brother of Thomas, his servant, lout as he is, has founded a set (in the name of goodness !), and has his followers. A league has been formed at Rome between the Pope, the King of Spain, and the Venetians, on these conditions: the King of Spain is to assist the Pope with 1,200 lances, 1,000 light horse and 10,000 foot; the Pope to keep in pay 500 lances, 8,000 foot, and find 40,000 g. cr. per month. The Venetians to furnish what they can. The Council of Pisa fares badly. Card. S. Crucis, the author of the schism, having through the King of Aragon obtained the Pope's pardon has escaped into Campagna. Any Christian prince may enter the league within 40 days; or afterwards be admitted by the Pope. England has not yet resolved what to do. The Emperor remains a spectator. There is a talk of the Florentines forsaking the French. If Erasmus was in London, would soon cure his hoarseness by a single small dose. Is sorry he does not come before January. Will enclose his letters for Italy. Sends compliments to Bovill. London, 6 Id. Nov. 1511.

Received two letters from him, one in Westminster Hall, the other by so bald a man, he had scarcely a single hair on his head, stating that Erasmus was labouring from a cough. Sends him 20 gold angels to cure him, "inter quos Raphælem salutis medicum reperies." Is glad to hear he intends visiting London next January. Lambeth, 11 Nov. 1517.

936. [1957.] ERASMUS to AMMONIUS.
Received his scolding letter 10 Nov., with a flagon half full of Greek wine. The man who brought it asked two drachmæ; Erasmus gave him 6d.; but on reading the letter perceived that the flagon had not been sent with his letter of the 8th, but with an earlier one, and that was clear from the colour of the wine. Wondered also it was not sealed; these men are as mischievous as they are rude. Did not expect the wine, and is more anxious for the missing letter Complains of the stupidity and carelessness of the carrier. Cannot refrain from laughter when he sees Andrew boiling over with anger. Deserves to meet with any misfortune as often as he remembers his leaving Rome. Is sorry to hear the bad news from Italy. Has reason to be angry with the heretics for increasing the price of fuel on the coming of winter. Thanks Ammonius for delivering the letters to Winchester and Durham. Before he comes Ammonius must find him a warm hive for the winter. Would not like to be far from St. Paul's; will not go to Mountjoy's house so long as that Cerberus sits at the door. Might find shelter with the Augustinians. Has received an invitation from Francis of Padua. Is glad of Mountjoy's return, and requests he may have his letters; wrote to him and the Bp. of Rochester by the messenger who brought the last. Will wait for his letters before starting. Bovill desires remembrance. Is to ask More if he gave Erasmus' letter to the Archbishop. Cambridge, 3 Id. Nov. 1512.

[Note of letters received 15 Dec. 1511.]
From Lorenzo Pasqualigo to Francesco his brother, London, 12 Nov.—Effect of a proclamation that none but lords and knights shall wear silk, with other regulations for apparel. This is done that the gentry may save money to buy arms and horses. It will injure the Genoese and Tuscan merchants who are bringing silk.
Ib. 356.ii. [Received 27 Dec. 1511.]
From Andrea Badoer, London, 12 Nov.—The King out of town. Others tell him that he will shortly hear good news,—implying that the King will join the League and break with France.

In pursuance of his letters has bought eight hobbies and sends them by his servant Simon. Good horses are scarce in England, where they are spoilt by being worked too young. They go through France with the French ambassador's passport; for the Most Christian King loves the Marquis. London, 15 Nov. 1511.

942. ANDREA DA BORGO to MARGARET OF SAVOY.
* * * The King has the response from England to his answer given at Lyons to the English ambassador. His ambassador reports the good disposition of the King of England and his Council and that the new league has been made without that King's knowledge, who as yet knows nothing of it and wishes to keep himself free and remain at peace with all, although he much desires a good peace and would willingly be mediator of it. The King of France says he is inclined to peace, but without the settlement of the Emperor's dispute with the Venetians he will hear of no appointment with the Pope; to this both he and the Emperor are bound by the Treaty of Blois, but the Pope practises to separate them. He greatly regrets to hear that Mons. de Reux, captain of the Burgundians, is taken prisoner by Venetian stradiots near Verona. * * * Blois, 15 Nov.

943. MAXIMILIAN to JAMES IV.
Wrote lately of the injuries done him by the Venetians, the enemies of Christendom, which had compelled him to take arms against them. Had entered into a league with the Pope, and the Kings of France and Aragon against them, but the Pope, for the sake of recovering possessions to the Church, as he said, began to oppress the subjects of Maximilian, to the prejudice also of the King of France, against whom he has made open war. Has lost no opportunity of composing these new differences. The King of Aragon has been persuaded to make a league with the Pope and the Venetians, directly against France but also against Bologna, the Duke of Ferrara and the Florentines, Maximilian's subjects and feudataries. Fears it will lead to a European war, and give an advantage to the Turk. Begs that James will use his influence in assisting to compose matters. Innsbruck, 15 Nov. 1511, 26 Max.

948. FISHER to ERASMUS.
The reason why he did not write when he sent to Erasmus lately was that the King (? ille) was hastening to leave the city and Fisher had to go out to meet him. Gave however the little gift which Erasmus had asked—not out of that deposit which he is supposed to hold, for as a matter of fact he has nothing at his own disposal. Seeing Erasmus so necessary to the University, Fisher will not suffer him to want so long as his slender supply lasts and will exhort Mountjoy, who is now in Court, to help. London.

949. [1982.] AMMONIUS to ERASMUS.
The carriers had left when John More brought him a letter from Erasmus, but none for Mountjoy. Understands that the flagon had been opened, and half the contents drunk, before it was delivered to Erasmus. Thinks he paid too much if he gave 6d. for the dregs of such ruffians: "Novi præterea quam ille calvus consueverit calvere"; but, as Erasmus says, humanity is not to be expected in such monsters. Sent the wine to see if he could extract a fresh copy of verses. Hears from Linacre the Archbishop has sent Erasmus a sum of money and would provide for him. If so, his complaints will diminish, but if any survive "in amicum effundes sinum." Erasmus has gained immortality; Ammonius has tramped after Fortune "ad ultimos Britannos," and never been able to overtake her. Of his friends one has been made Vice-chancellor (fn. 3) of the Roman Church, the other Chief-penitentiary, (fn. 4) and both upbraid his folly for leaving Rome. Regrets his poverty and desolation, as he is growing old, in this "Cimmerian darkness." Has not yet been able to pay his compliments to Mountjoy. The Bp. of Durham promises to exert himself for Erasmus; the Bp. of Winchester speaks less openly, but more friendly. He thought Erasmus had a living, and bade Ammonius remind him of it. Does not know where Erasmus can hive; fears there is no one at the Augustinians' with whom he can be chamber-fellow; knows not whether Erasmus would like him to ask the blind poet. Hears that they have some apartments for hire, but unfurnished. The monastery is crammed where Ammonius lodges, and they keep a poor table. There is a college near St. Paul's of certain doctors, who, as they say, live comfortably; but Ammonius thinks it no better than a watercloset. He might perhaps try Francis, only that he is as poor as a beggar. What of asking the kindness of Griphius, especially now when D. Jo. Baptista Boncantus is away ? Has not yet seen More, who is daily with the Archbishop. No news from Italy. Sends compliments to Bovill. London, 14 Kal. Dec.

952. [3535.] JOAN. SIXTINUS to ERASMUS.
Is pleased with the sharp humor of his letters, although he suffers from them. The assertion of Thaleus, that the copy of his Copia (fn. 5) was lent only to be restored to Erasmus, would anger any one. Was certain he gave it; as such copies as were not sold he distributed to friends, to Allen, to Shirley, to the writer. Had no time to read it then, as he was much engaged in his law studies at Bologna; and therefore he never spoke of it, as he knew not so much as the title of the book. Begs he may be acquitted of all suspicion of dishonesty, as he seems to be when Erasmus writes of trying to find a place near him; which Bovill promises to effect. Their friend the Dean (fn. 6) is much delighted at the prospect of Erasmus' visit, and has ready for him on his arrival 40 crowns (?), (fn. 7) unless he send them to Cambridge before. Would he had come: "essentque vini non epistolares inter nos sermones." Laments that among the many letters of Erasmus none had come for him, and that he had only been remembered at the close of his letters to others. Has been late in this reply because the letters of Erasmus dated on the Nativity of SS. Simon and Jude [28 Oct.] did not reach him until 15 Kal. Dec. London, 20 Nov. ao 1497. (fn. 8)

Received, 24 Nov., his letter dated 27 Oct. Must lay the fault on St. Jerome if he sends a short answer. Jokes on the verses he had sent. The Pope's pilgrimage to Lorretto. If any fatality befal the Church, it will be owing to Julius, nimium forti. Suppose the French are driven from Italy, will the Spaniards or Venetians be more endurable ? Fears the result. Sorry he does not like his change of residence. When Erasmus comes to London, in December, they will study Greek together. What news of Mountjoy ? Has written to him twice, and, as usual, received no answer. Where does he advise Erasmus to settle ? Has had three letters from Ammonius. Has written to Colet and Peter the one-eyed.

Besides theirs of 26 Aug., they have both written several letters and charged the late Hieronymo Donato to write. Suppose the letters intercepted. Enclose a summary of news to be read to the King. Are sure that, now the League is concluded, the King will, as his preparations import, play a glorious part and abase that French pride which, not satisfied with the lordship of Italy, aspires to the monarchy of the world.

Four or five days ago gave a priest a letter for Erasmus. Stated that Winchester was well disposed, but so much occupied he can scarcely attend to any other business than his own. Has no reason for apprehension if he comes to London; the plague is entirely gone. If he does not like Mountjoy's Cerberus, it will be easy to find a chamber elsewhere. They learn by letters from Italy that the French have had the victory; the Spaniards are starving. The Council of Pisa goes on. The Cardinals S. Crucis, Cosenza, Bayeux, and Narbonne have been deprived. Famine and plague devastate Bologna. London, 4 Kal. Dec. 1512 (sic).

[Summary of letters received 15 Dec. 1511.]
From Count Hironimo Porzia to Zuan Badoer, doctor and knight, Rome, 28 Nov., 1511.—Piero de Rizo, Papal agent in England, writes that the King will say no more than that he is for the Pope and will do his best to agree him with these Christian Princes. The Cardinal of England has said he fears Spain more than France, owing to the uncertainty of his keeping faith; that the interception of his King's couriers lately was unfortunate, but if the Emperor came to terms the League would be joined by England who leans more to the Emperor's grandson than to the King of Spain. The Pope says that the Emperor has dismissed the Cardinal of San Severino and admitted Campeggio, auditor of the Rota, to intimate the Lateran Council. The Legate de Medici wrote on 22 Nov. from Faenza that there was hope of agreement between the Emperor and Venice. The Duke of Ferrara and Hannibal Bentivoglio are in conference with Joan Jacomo Triulzi at Parma. The King of Hungary sending the Cardinal of Strigonia hither. French galleys at Genoa, and other preparations. Letters from Venice of the 12th state that Alberto da Carpi had arrived there from the Emperor, and the Signory forthwith resolved upon the agreement; and Gurk was coming to Venice, upon hostages being given, and afterwards to Rome. Other news of these matters and of the Turks. The Pope's army.
Postscript, 29 Nov.—Gurk has written to a friend that he finds himself in the Emperor's Court in greater favour than ever, and is the friend of Venice and enemy of France. The Duke of Termeni left this morning for the enterprise.

Ib. 321.ii. [Summary of letters received 14 Dec. 1511.]
From Hironimo Campanato to Pier Venier, Naples, 23 Nov. 1511.—The Viceroy has set forth news from Spain that a daughter of the late King Philip of Castile should marry the Duke of Lorraine's son, who should have in dower Savoy and all Languedoc and the reversion of Naples. Thus "Grande Roy" will again become "Petit Gian." The fever is worse. The Venetian secretary at Rome announces the election of ambassadors (Venetian) for Spain and England, &c.
29 Nov.—The old queen here has had news from England that the English army had moved against France. Genoa.

Regrets to learn by her last letter, of 13 Nov., the failure of the assault on Vennelo, and still more the loss of good and brave men there. It is the fortune of war. Next summer he will come to conduct the war in person and meanwhile she shall continue measures for security during the winter. Is pleased with the gracieux departement she gave the English. Urges the completion of the blockhouse before Waghemmighen to starve Nymeghen and protect shipping coming down the rivers from Cologne. Munde, 29 Nov. 1511.

Rejoiced by receipt of his letter because report had been spread of his death. Thinks he writes rather freely about the Kings, and advises prudence. Although the matter of a living for Erasmus is not yet settled, there seems good hope that he will at length obtain what he has long deserved, and meanwhile he should continue to press his Moecenas.
Lat.
Er. Ep., VIII.45. [Edit. Allen, I., 241.]968. [5732.] ERASMUS to ROGER WENTFORD.
Thanks him for the interest he takes in his writings, as evinced by his not wishing the Copia to be published unless for the glory of Erasmus. Is rich in golden promises. If Wentford laments for an empty purse Erasmus has greater reason to complain, for out of 70 nobles he brought hither (istuc) not a fraction remains; which shows how money runs away here where he bears all costs and has to do with two most voracious Charybdis. Does not see how he can live there except he lives with Grocin; and would rather live with him than any one else, but does not like to impose on his generosity. Is finishing his work De conscribendis Epistolis. Intends correcting his Copia. Remembrances to Grocin, our common patron and preceptor. Spoke to D. William N. concerning the boy, although Linacer had already done so.

Footnotes

1 Lord Mountjoy.
2 This letter noted in Vol. II., No. 3787, under the date it bears in the London Edition, is really of the year 1511, as has been pointed out to me by Mr. P. S. Allen, who tells me there is no MS. authority for the "1517."—Editor.
3 Sisto della Rovere.
4 Leonardo Grosso della Rovere.
5 Erasmi Adagia.
6 Colet.
7 40 c. The "c" is given in facsimile in Le Clere's ed. 1706, who absurdly supposes it to mean Cantharos, Allen reads it "s," i.e. "solidos."
8 The words "anno 1497," I have no doubt, were added by Le Clerc or his assistants. He refers to Ep. ii. 22. in proof of the date, though it has nothing in common with this letter. The treatise of Erasmus De Copia had not then appeared. Erasmus was, moreover, at Cambridge. It is very inaccurately printed.—Brewer.
