51. Francis I. to Marillac.
Has received his letters of the 17th, and heard what he wrote to the Admiral; and consequently thinks he should resume the question of marriage with Norfolk, in whose absence (he shall say) he had proceeded more coldly, lest the matter should pass by other hands. If it does not seem expedient to apply to Norfolk, he shall apply to those who seem most suitable (with the caution necessary there), and give them to understand that the prosperity and adversity of the Emperor cannot alter Francis's desire for their amity; and he may go so far as to say that if he sees that the King of England wishes to go through with this matter, a power shall be produced.
Having heard the Cardinal of St. Andrews, orders Marillac to confer with the Scottish ambassadors, and, jointly, appoint with the King of England the interview of the three Kings (de nous trois). The Cardinal writes to the ambassadors a letter which Marillac shall deliver. Even if they are gone, he shall still put forward the said interview.
Is informed by the bp. of Montpellier of news at Venice that an Italian gentleman named Beltrasmo Sacha has taken a town called Marran, (fn. 2) which belonged to the King of the Romans, and set up the French flag in it. Has to-day called the ambassadors of the Pope, the Emperor, and Venice, and informed them of this taking of Marran without his knowledge and approval, and that the takers give him to understand that unless he accords them his protection, they will make their profit of it elsewhere. Asked the ambassadors' advice; and, after hearing them, although informed that the King of the Romans has killed two of his (Francis's) servants near Jarre, (fn. 3) has, in order to justify himself and save Christendom, written to the bp. of Montpellier, his ambassador at Venice, to exhort Beltrasmo Sacha to surrender the place, as Francis is much displeased with what had been done, and unless he surrenders it, will never aid or protect him.

55. Paget to Henry VIII.
Sends copy of a declamation in French (said to be by a gentleman of this Court) made to Henry and his Council in the lady Anne of Cleves' name, in which, under shadow of a humble and obedient oration, the author goes about to confute Henry's just proceedings in the repudiation of the said lady. Will try to learn the author, and asks whether to complain to the French King. The traitor, Blanche Rose, resorts sometimes to Paris and shows himself gallantly all in white. As one of the Council, knows that former ambassadors have required his delivery, and that, finding the French King would not conform to the treaties, Henry has passed the matter over. Begs instructions touching the said traitor, and also if Norfolk, that ran away with the King's money, come in his way, whether to cause him to be sent to England. Martin Pery, who fled from England for clipping or coining money, dwells in Rouen. Is in doubt whether he benefits by the pardon granted in last Parliament.
Signor Jeronimus has obtained the safe conduct for his master, the prince of Salerne, and a certain number with him, none to be Spaniards. Mons. de Trafes, who has been out of favour for a murder, is returned to Court and restored to favour. He passed his retirement at his castle of Traafes, in the Franche Conte, which, on his return, he left in charge of a trusty friend, who has betrayed it to the Emperor's governor of the Franche Conte, who has beaten it to the ground. The Queen of Navarre's almoner is come from Rome with word that the Bishop made no cardinals this feast, except him that was ambassador of Portugal. (fn. 4) Grandvela has now quiet possession of Senes, and has put in a governor at the Emperor's will, "which the French King saith is the very mean to deduce the State of Senes unto the government of the duke of Camerino." Senes is almost as great as Florence. Granvela is now gone to Florence, and goes thence to Rome. The bishop of Rome has levied money and taken musters, but his purpose is not yet known. He has sent into Spain, by Avignon, his secretary Johannes de Pultiano, (fn. 5) for the Emperor's advice touching a marriage of the duke of Savoy with his niece, Madame Victoria, who was heretofore named to Mons. de la Guysse's son. The matter is ill-liked here, yet the King has liberated the six Spaniards that were conveyed out of Avignon. The bp. of Valence is kept straiter than ever, and conveyed from Castle Galyarde to Shirburk upon the sea side. It is thought he will be conveyed from place to place, until finally conveyed "out of the way."
Andreas Doria is come to Genes with 11 (fn. 6) galleys, appointed to make 14 more. Barbarossa lies in Pryusa, with 150, awaiting wind to do some enterprise. He is much feared in Sicily. The Emperor has sent 2,000 Spaniards to Italy. Describes conversation of the Emperor's ambassador with the French King (about homage due for Satyne (fn. 7) castle in Franche Counte, lately surrendered to him by the duke of Lorraine, who held it of the duchy of Luxemburg), in which the King "somewhat chafed."
Treacherous capture of King Ferdinand's strong haven town of Maran, in Friuli, by the French King's servant, Signor Germanico, and one Captain Turchetto, on the 12th inst. The captors set up the French King's arms and sent letters hither, by one Spagnoletto, signifying that the town is at the French King's command. Spagnoletto arrived on Saturday night, and on Sunday, after dinner, the King called the ambassadors of the Emperor, Venice, and the bishop of Rome, and said he had letters from Turchetto, offering to deliver him the town, provided he certified his acceptance by a certain day, otherwise they would surrender it to the Grand Signor. The King protested he was sorry that this had happened, and desired advice whether to take it or let it be given to the Grand Signor. The ambassadors of Venice and Rome answered that it were better he took it. The Emperor's ambassador said he would do well first to hang him that brought the letters, and then do his best to hang them that stole the town. "Tout beau, Mons l'Ambassadour," quod the King, "I may not kill ambassadors, as your master doth, and as for hanging of them that be in the town, I should reguardon them well for the service they intended to do me. Yet, God knoweth it, I knew not their intent. But, to the purpose, show me your opinion in the matter, whether you think it better that I have it, or let the Grand Signor have it." The ambassador asked leave first to refer to the Emperor, and was finally given six days to consult the Regent of Flanders; but the King has already sent his mind to them of Maran, to which all the Privy Council are not privy. The Venetians are much afraid, for it lies very near Venice, and they had meant to redeem it. The ambassadors of the Emperor, Venice, Ferrara, Mantua, Genes, Rome, and all Italians here seem ready to weep and think Italy lost, seeing the preparations the Turk makes, and the friendship he finds here.

57. Charles V. to Chapuys.
Acknowledging letters of the 10 and 19 Nov. and 11 and 18 Dec. Chapuys must be careful to consent only conditionally to the proposed alliance, until he ascertains what Henry proposes to do for the Emperor. Thanks Chapuys for the news about the Queen, and the King's fresh divorce. Tordesillas, 26 Jan. 1542.
P.S.—Touching the French ambassador's man, who informed Chapuys of the powers given to his chief to conclude a marriage between the Duke of Orleans and the Princess, which he knew how to stop, Chapuys must try to ascertain the means he proposes to use, and keep him at the Emperor's devotion. Hears also that there is some talk of Henry taking back Anne of Cleves, which must, if possible, be prevented.

61. The Scottish Ambassadors.
"A note of sundry things to be showed to the ambassadors of Scotland." (fn. 9)
First, where divers traitors are recepted in Scotland; the King, 4 Feb. 1540, wrote to the king of Scots to deliver them, according to the treaty, and, at the same time, apprehended such as the king of Scots required (though not according to the treaty) by Sir John Cambell, then passing into Flanders; but the king of Scots by his own letters, dated 12 March, answered that he would deliver no kirkmen, although the treaty makes no difference of persons nor grants that either prince should take knowledge of the nature of the treason committed by the other's rebels. The King requires the ambassadors of Scotland "now here present" directly to answer him herein, and declare whether they will maintain the allegation touching the kirkmen.
In Wriothesley's hand :—And where the King of Scots by his said letters, and others of 19 May 1541, reputes the traitors so demanded to be traitors only for the cause of the bishop of Rome; although the treaty requires each Prince to give credence to the letters of requisition without enquiring of the offence, it is to be known that the persons demanded use the name of the bishop of Rome "for an excuse and mean to help themselves," and were principal captains and procurers of the late rebellion. The law for the abolition of the usurped power of Rome was made before the treaty, and some of the Commissioners here to conclude the treaty were at the execution of monks and others under that law, as in the answer made to Mr. Thomas Ballenden, at Pipwell, (fn. 10) is more largely declared.
Names of the most notable traitors recepted in Scotland, over and besides a number of Borderers, viz. :—"Leche of Horncastle, &c." [A few lines blank.]
Further, by the treaty it is ordained that the bounds between the two realms shall remain; contrary to which "the Scots have, &c." "Item, the ploughing and sowing of our ground, &c. Item, the great perjury, &c. Item, the raising of fire and the notable murders, &c. Then the notable attemptates, and the coming in of their deputy warden. Then th'other attemptates, and specially the rode upon Carnaby."
Draft corrected by Wriothesley, pp. 10. Docketed as above.
Ib. 2. "The names of certain traitors recepted in Scotland" :—Leche, of Louthe, the first beginner of the insurrection and a continual deviser of evil towards the King and realm. Woodmancy of Beverley and Wilson, captains in the said insurrection. The friar of Gnaresburghe, a special setter forward of the same. Dr. Hilliarde "a notable counsellor and conspirator of the same."

63. Chapuys to Charles V.
His letters of the 29 Dec. and 10 Jan. will have informed the Emperor what he could gather about the King's frequently expressed wish for a closer alliance with the Emperor. Is still of his old opinion about this—that it is only for fear of the Emperor making an alliance with France, to thwart which has been his continual study. He will break off the negotiation at once on the least appearance of war, and put off both belligerents with fine words, that he may reap the greater advantage when both are exhausted, avoiding expense himself. Sees no chance of persuading him to a reconciliation with the Pope. He cannot believe that such propositions came from the Emperor, after Chapuys's interview with the lord Privy Seal in November last.
Has not been summoned to Court since his last, though the English ambassadors (fn. 11) have returned from Flanders, and the Privy Councillors assured him he should be called to talk over matters with them about trade with the Low Countries. Would like very much to know the King's intentions, and the object of his sending this bishop (fn. 12) to the Emperor, who leaves as soon as the secretary of Mr. de Guenebet (Knyvet) arrives from France. The bp. will sail from this river in 10 or 12 days at the utmost. He is the same who was ambassador in France when the Emperor passed through that country, and was recalled for the haughty words he used before Francis.
Neither has this French ambassador gone to Court since Chapuys was there. Learns from his private informant that the ambassador had letters about the return of Mr. Christopher Richer, with the success of whose negociations in Denmark Francis had been delighted. Francis had some days before assembled a number of captains to deliberate on preparing for war, and, by advice of Annebaut, was collecting money for eight months' support of an army. Another Council had been held after it, attended by St. Pol and the Admiral. Meanwhile Francis had sent to the Grand Turk a certain Commagio and Capt. Poulain; and Marshal Du Bie, governor of Boulogne, was incessantly representing that the fortifications raised by the English at La Moutière, near Ardres, should be stopped, otherwise all the time and money that had been spent in fortifying Ardres would be wasted if it remained between La Moutière and Montorre like a quail between two hawks. Hearing which, Francis determined on constructing a fortress with a harbour at Ubyssant (Wissant), half-way between Calais and Boulogne. If this be true, it is enough to drive these English to despair.
(fn. 13) Parliament began its session a few days ago. The Chancellor's speech aggravated the Queen's misdeeds to the utmost, whereupon the Lords, four days ago, found the Queen and lady Rochford guilty of high treason. The Dowager Duchess of Norfolk and her daughter (fn. 14) are sentenced to perpetual imprisonment, with confiscation of property, on the same grounds as Lord William and his wife, and the rest of the accomplices. Within two days the said resolution and award will be laid before the Commons.
Has this moment heard that the Commons have this morning agreed with the judgment of the Lords on the Queen and the three other ladies, and it is to be feared that the Queen will be immediately placed in the Tower. She is still at Syon, making good cheer, fatter and more beautiful than ever, taking great care to be well apparelled and more imperious and troublesome to serve than even when she was with the King, although she believes she will be put to death, and confesses she has deserved it. She only begs that her execution be secret. Perhaps, if the King does not wish to marry again, he may show her some compassion; or if he found it lawful to leave her on account of her adultery, take another—a question which, it is said, has been already debated by learned divines, although hitherto the King has shown no inclination to a fresh marriage, nor to serve any lady. There seems less hope than ever of his taking back the lady of Cleves, though on New Year's day she presented him with some pieces of cramoisv cloth, and he gave her some glass pots and flagons.
The Scotch Ambassadors are still here. Nothing is yet known of the object of their mission. But the King has lately sent an engineer (fn. 15) to the Borders to inspect fortifications, and has despatched one of the gentlemen of his Chamber (fn. 16) to be governor of Hull. This last he may have done partly owing to what Chapuys said to him of the intelligence of the king of France with the duke [of Holstein], as the said port is one of his own staples, where all the Flemish vessels usually arrive.
Forgot to mention that people fear the King will again apply to Parliament for money, which will drive his subjects to despair, because the Chancellor in his opening speech alluded to the expense the King had been put to in keeping up an army of 14,000 men for the new and old fortresses. The bp. of London has sent to say he will dine with Chapuys to-morrow, as the King wished him to see him before his departure. London, 29 Jan. 1542.

64. Chapuys to Granvelle.
Encloses letters to the Emperor (No. 63). The King has lately ordered the arrest and imprisonment of the New Christians that came from Portugal. Most likely, however well they may sing, they will not escape from their cages without leaving feathers behind. The clerk of the French embassy tells him the Genevese (Genoese) ambassadors in France make great promises to Francis, who, at the request of M. de Langez, has given pensions to some of their citizens. The bp. of London is going to the Emperor, in the room of Master Guenebet. He is a good scholar, and a man of wit. London, 29 Jan. 1542.

68. Ireland.
A paper, headed, "For the reformation of Ireland," (fn. 18) recommending that, as Ireland is abused by greedy and partial judges and by great officers, who seek only to enrich themselves with the King's revenue, a "sadd peryt juge" should be sent from England, as a mirror and instructor to the other judges, and a discreet, valiant Deputy. The King and his Council are reminded that the land might remain as it is and the King enjoy his revenue, for no Irishman will make war if suffered to remain as he is; that the subjects of the Pale would be as faithful to the Deputy as the King's guard is to him, and the Deputy might hawk and hunt for 60 miles as peaceably as in England; and that, doubtless, he might have at his command the earls of Desmond and Ormond, O'Brene, ONele, ODownyll. Nele McCoyne, OKeroil, and MacWilliam, who "in effect domine all the land." Wales is true to the Crown, because not under one ruler, but several in each shire; and so would Ireland be under seneschals and justices. Galloglasses and kerne would then forsake idleness, and take to tillage, mining, and fishing. Irishmen will never be conquered by rigorous war, they are so hardy and active. A sufficient army would be 1,000 men, furnished for half a year, to be thenceforth found with the revenues, increased by an Act of resumption of the Customs of the cities of Munster, which the King's father granted them to repair their walls, and which they now divide as profits, and yearly fight for. "The Irishmen have pregnant, subtle wits, eloquent and marvellous natural in comynaunce." If instructed that they were not to be banished, but to take their lands of the King, "as ODownyl has done and ONele is crying to do," they would become true subjects, and forsake Irish laws and manners.
