1084. [3033.] JAMES IV. to [CARDINAL OF ST. MARK].
The priory of St. Mary's Isle, of the order of St. Augustine, dioc. Galloway, was erected by the ancient kings of Scotland, as a cell to the monastery of Holy Rood, on condition that the abbot of Holy Rood should appoint or depose the prior at his pleasure. In process of time this uncertainty of tenure was disliked, and the priors procured appointments for life. As the priory ceased to be visited it fell into neglect and ruin, and cannot be reformed unless the original authority be restored. Begs, on the death of John, the present prior, it may again be connected with Holy Rood, or at least, on its voidance, George abbot of Holy Rood may hold it in commendam, and restore it.

Since writing has heard that the Venetians refuse the peace with the Emperor proposed by the Pope and King of Aragon; on which account the latter will no longer have them in their League and are ready to join him against them. Is waiting to hear what assistance the Pope and Aragon will give. Thinks that the Venetians, in view of the loss they have since suffered, will soon talk otherwise.

1100. [3104.] JAMES IV. to JULIUS II.
Received on 2 March the apostolic brief, dated 7 Jan., and read it with great regret. What can be worse than that a Holy Father and a Christian son should level their swords at each others throats? As in the dictatorship of the great Julius, all authority was consolidated in the monarchy, so, under Julius, Christ's vicar, he trusts Christendom will rise to a man at the command of the Church. Had instructed the bp. of Murray to urge reconciliation, but in vain. He has informed the King, in presence of the prelates and nobles, of his most just demands for peace, and his failure. James and all Christian princes with whom he has relations are interested in using every effort to secure peace, and a crusade against the Infidels. Has resolved to exhort the King of France to return to his obedience; let Bologna be replaced, Ferrara restored, the new Council cease. Will use his efforts, if recourse be not had to arms, with the King of France, and perhaps will succeed better by peaceful means, provided only the Pope will look upon him as his most Christian son. Holyrood, "ultimo Marcii sexto decimo supra, &c."
P.S. in the King's own hand.—Thanks the Pope for the privilege granted to his chapel, for the confessional, for the kindness shown his ambassador. Wishes to know if the Pope desires his services with the King of France. If the Pope bids him, will try to bring France over, whatever the result may be.
Lat., copy, p. 1.

1101. [3077.] SPINELLY to HENRY VIII.
Wrote last on the 14th. Sends him a copy of an article (fn. 1) which came in letters from the Emperor last night. Bannisis has also written and sent the copy (enclosed) of the protest made against the Venetians by the ambassadors of the Pope and Aragon. Affairs are in better condition, as the Venetians condescend to the truce and my Lady thinks that, if the Pope dismiss their ambassador and recal his from Venice, they will accept the peace, and the Emperor receive some money from them. She wishes Henry would urge the Venetian ambassador to write to his masters in that behalf. Letters have been received stating that the French in Brescia [had committed great] disorders. There were killed 14,000, and both secular and spiritual persons pillaged and outraged, and all over eight years old were made prisoners and put to ransom. The Emperor is at Treves. Madame expects him here before Easter. Nassou, Dysylstein, De Walem, Zevomberg and De Wassene, in Gueldres with 3,000 foot and 500 horse, have burnt all the land of Bommel and now mean to do the like about Nymeghe. The Emperor has written threatening letters to the Council about it, which Spinelly thinks not à propos. On the 20th the Estates are to make answer to the proposition made to them. It is said that Ghent demands peace. If so the rest of Flanders will do the like. (A passage unintelligible touching the assault of Brescia.) [No news] of the appointment of the Swiss with the French. Madame thinks the King very slow in his preparations, and has told Spinelly that many thought the King would do as much as the late King Edward and his own father, but she believes the contrary. They are awaiting the arrival from France of Andreas de Burgo. Though four posts have come from Germany, does not even know where Sir Robert Wingfield is. Malines, 17 March.

[Note of letters read 18 March 1512.]
From Paulo Augustini to the Proveditor Capello, Mantua, 17 March.—The French say that the King of England has declared war on France. The Spaniards remain where they were, and the French have moved the bridge from Revere to La Stella, intending to cross the Po and attack Padua and Treviso unawares.
From the said Proveditor, Vicenza, 17 March:—Forwarding the above. The King of the Romans has by his ambassador made four requests to the King of France, viz., to give him (1) Padua and Treviso, (2) 80,000 ducats, (3) Bologna and Ferrara, and (4) certain castles in the borders of Burgundy. If this be true he seems to seek a quarrel with France. Verona.

From the Ambassador at Rome, 18 March.—The Pope's gout better. Fresh letters from England report great preparations to attack France on 1 April.

To say that he has been graciously heard and answered; that James desires peace between the Pope and Most Christian King, and the subsequent Crusade; that he has read articles in the same spirit transmitted to James by the French King; that James prays the Kings to use every effort to make peace and promote the Crusade; and that the Queen continually invites him to observe the friendship of the Pope and both Kings.

Received on the 8 Jan. (March in § 2), by Leonard Lopez, LL.D., prothonotary apostolic, his letters dated Burgos (Brugorum oppido) the 6 Nov., expressive of the ancient amity between the two kingdoms, and how Ferdinand, with a view to extend Christianity, had in the previous summer furnished a fleet for Africa. Ferdinand has been summoned by the Pope, under his new title of The Catholic, to protect the Church, and by virtue of that office has entered the league and invites Scotland to do the same. At his request James was induced to make peace and affinity with Henry VII. As, therefore, it is the distinguished privilege of Ferdinand to be the promoter of peace, begs he will use his influence to reconcile Lewis and the Pope, and induce them to lay down their arms. The King of France is much more likely to return to his allegiance by this way than by war, and all Christian princes ought to labor to this end. Has despatched Ferdinand's ambassador to appeal to him and freely dissuade him as King Catholic from drawing his sword against a Catholic soldier. Has sent to the King of England for the same purpose, who has hitherto been studious of peace.

From the Ambassador at Rome, 23 to 27 March.—Negociation with the Spanish ambassador, in presence of the Pope, for a truce between the Emperor and Venice pending the making of a peace. On the 24th arrived, on his way to the camp, a Spanish captain who left the court at Burgos on the 6th and says that his King will certainly attack France at Fontarabia on 15 April. Letters of the 6th from England report the King's men ready to invade France and encamp at Boulogne, and the ships prepared. The Spaniards in the camp are eager, but the Pope has written to them not to give battle till his reinforcements come up. The King of France has dismissed the Spanish ambassador resident.
