Here ensuen TH'ARTICLES of TH'APPOINTMENT, MAAD and Accorded at Rouchestre, the Furst day of Juyll, BETWIX the King, by th'Advis of his Conseil, on that oo Partie, and my Lord his Cousin the Cardinal &c. on that other Partie,
Furst,
How be it the King, by th'Advis of his said Conseil, hath Graunted his Licence to the said Cardinal to have out of his Reaume of England the King's Subgittes of the same, to the Nombre of CCL. Speres, and M M. D. Bowes, to acccompanye him to the Reaume of Boeme, for the Reduction and Expugnation of th'Eretikes there that entenden the Subversion of the Christien Feith,
Nevere the lesse,
Forasmuche as it is thought to the King and his said Conseil that, considering diverse greet and grevous Adversitees and Fortunes of Werre, happened right late agoo, after the tyme of the said Licence, unto the King's Subgittes in his Reaume of France, and the greet Jupartie that the Persone of my Lord of Bedford his Uncle, and the Remenant of his truue Subgitts in the Reaume of France, and the same Reaume standen yn like to be lost and subverted, o lesse than hasty and undelayed Provision of Socours, and Relief, out of his Reaume of Engeland, be disposed and sent theder,
And that therefore the Service of the Men of Armes and Archers, that have Entended with the said Cardinal, is in alle wyse necessarie and behoveful unto the King,
The said Cardinal,
Considering the things before reherced, for the most singuler love, zeele, and tendernesse that he bereth to the Seuretee, Welfare, and Prosperitee of the King, and of alle his Landes and Subgitts, and in especial of my Lord of Bedford, of the Reaume of France, and the Kings Subgitts there,
Is condescended unto the Contenue of th'Articles that followe, that is to say,
That, my said Lord the Cardinal hath assented, in his Persone, to Goo, and also Lede his Retenue, that he hath of the Kings Subgitts of this Land, into the Reaume of France to my said Lord of Bedford, and there to abide; and also make all hem of his saide Retenue, as ferforth as in him shal be, to abide and serve the King in his Werres, in his Reaume of France, for the Terme of Half a Yere, for the whiche thei have entended with him.
Item, that, for execution of That that is in the next Article before, the King shal Graunte my said Lord the Cardinal Pouer, by his Lettres Patentes, to make Constable and Mareschal of his saide Retenue suche Persones as it shal be thought moost expedient and behoveful to the said my Lord the Cardinal; to the whiche, during the said Half Yeer, he shal yeve in charge to employe his said Retenue in the Kings Service there, in suche wyse as other of the Kings Subgitts theer doon that been occupied in the Werre; except that thei shall not be bounde, as by force of this APPOINTMENT, to eny Sieges.
Item, that,
To the same entent, and to that ende that it ne shall mowe in eny wise resonably be thought, that the lettyng of the goyng of the said Cardinal and his Retenue to Beeme procedeth of the wille, ymaginacion, and covyne of the said Cardinal,
The King shale sende a sufficeant Persone, and also his Lettres Patentes under his Greet Seal of England, by the whiche he shal yeve pleine auctoritee and pouer unto my Lord of Bedford, for diverse greet causes and consideracions, suche as moeve him, to forbede alle his said Subgitts of the said Cardinales Retenue, upon peine of forfaiture of lyf, lymme, and all that thei may forfaite ayenst the King, in eny wise to passe, out of his said Reaume of France, in eny other Land, fro the xxiij day of Juyn last passed, unto the xxj Day of December next comyng; notwithstanding eny licence or graunt maad by the King therupon afore the date of the same Lettres Patentes: and to arreste, and enprisone, and to holde enprisoned eny of the said Retenue, that dooth the contraire, into the tyme that the King yeveth to my said Lord of Bedford other commandement.
Item, to that ende that it appiere evidently that it is not the Kings entent to Restreine the going of his said Subgitts, at this tyme, to Beeme, in displeser or contempt of oure Holy Fadre the Pope, or of the Churche, but oonly in necessarie eschuying of the open and evident parills, daungers, losse, and inconvenients before reherced, ne for to put our Holy Fadre or the Chirche to losse of the good paied for Wages to the said Retenue, the King offreth, wol, and shal make unto oure saide Holy Fadre notable and sufficeante seuretee of Repaiement of the hoole Some, that the said Wages drawe unto; the saide paiement to be made without longer delay or tarying; that is to say,
That oon half, the laste Day of Feverer that next cometh,
And that other half, the furst day of May next followyng,
And with that the King graunteth and agreeth him that, at the said begynning of May, oure said Holy Fadre, and the Chirch, and the forsaid Cardinal shal mowe have out of this land men of Armes and Archers, to the nombre, or above, and to th'entent, graunted to him before.
Item, that,
For as muche as it is thought that the saide seuretee of Repaiement most be Obligacions of the Lordes of the King's Counsail, the whiche, if thei were shewed here after, bering date of this day, there myghte growe therof suspecion of collusion betwene the Kings said Counsail and the forsaid Cardinal,
It is advised and asserted, by the King's Counsail, that the said Lords of the Conseil shul make obligacions to oure said Holy Fadre and to his Chambre, beryng date of this day; the whiche shul be put in the said Cardinals keping:
And, after the Publicacion of the saide Prohibicion and Defense, to be maad in France on the King's behalve, yere shall be Maad and Seeled newe Obligations, by the said Lords of the Conseil, of the same Teneur, save the Dates of this Day, beryng Date of a Day after the Publicacion of the said Prohibition; ye whiche shall be delivered to him whom oure Holy Fadre or the said Cardinal wol assigne, and the said furst Obligations be restored to the said Lords of the Conseil, that shall be bounden by hem.
Item, that anoon, upon the tyme of Publication of the said Prohibitions, there shal be sent Messagers unto oure Holy Fadre the Pope, and to the Princes of Almaigne, with Lettres of Excusation, contenyng the Causes of Restreint and Delay of passing unto Boeme of the said Cardinal Retenue, aswel in Discharging of the King, and Declaration and keping of his Name and Fame, as of the forsaid Cardinal's.
Item, For as muche as the King shal Repaie to oure said Holy Fadre the Wages of the forsaid Cardinal's Retenue, it is Accorded that, if any of the forsaide Retenue departe fro the said Cardinal, withynne the forsaid Half Yeer, or withdrawe his Service, the said Cardinal shal make his Attourne, at the Kings Assignement, to sue lawfully him of his saide Retenue that so doth, and mynistre his Evidences and lawefull Proves; of the whiche Suyte, as wel as of the Thirddes, and alle other manere of Wynnyng of Werre, that myghte belonge or to be due unto oure said Holy Fadre, or to the forsaid Cardinal, withyne the forsaid Half Yeere, of eny of the forsaid Retenue, the King shal have the Hool Availle and Proussit.
Item, consideryng the greet Charge that the said Cardinal shal bere in accomplishing of the things before reherced, the Kyng of his liberalitee hath Graunted unto the said Cardinal, by wey of Reward, a Thousand Marc:
And, over that, the King shal sende unto his said Uncle of Bedford, by the forsaid Persone that shal bere his Lettres Patentes, and late his Uncle of Bedford wete howe that, according to his desire, with greet Difficultee and Instance, he hath Treted and Induced the said Cardinal to goo, he and his Retenue, thorough his Reaume of France by his said Uncle, to th'entent that he shall nowe have Speche with the said Cardinal, and entrete him and his Retenue, if him thenke that it be necessarie unto him; lating my saide Lord his Uncle wete that the King bereth so greet a Charge, in settyng overe of Sr. John Radcliff and his Retenue, at this tyme, that there coude not be getten here the Goode, wherwith to have sowded the said Cardinal's Retenue, if he and thei of his said Retenue myghte have be entretd therto; and that therfore, if he wol desire the Service of the said Cardinals Retenue, he muste entrete him and thaim in suche wyse as it shall be thought unto him expedient and Raisonable:
In Demesnyng of the whiche Tretie the said Cardinal shal, by his greete Discrecion and Prudence, doo his good and trewe Devoir to Charge my said Lord of Bedford and that Reaume with Paiement of the Wages of his saide Retenue; In no wyse latyng my said Lord of Bedford wete of eny Seuretee made here of Repaiement to oure said Holy Fadre:
And, in cas that the said Cardinal may so induce my said Lord of Bedford to Charge him and that Land there with the saide Paiement of Half Yeer Wages, or of parcel therof, he shal Ordeigne that the said Lords of the Conseil shul be Descharged of as greet a Somme, in their Obligations, as my said Lord of Bedford and that Reaume there shul Charge hem self with.
