qr. barley, 500 qr. rye and 500 qr. wheat, to be sent in haste to Berwick.
Commission devised for — (blank), the King's coopers, to take up

680. Wymounde Carew to John Gate.
His brother, Thomas Carew, has shipped certain tin for Rone
(Rouen) and with others stays at Powle for fear of robbers of the sea.
His ship sails well, and would be safer alone than if all went together.
Desires him to move some of those appointed to the sea to lie, in the
defence of this tin, between Powle and Depe, and send word either to
John Capelyn at Southampton or to John Carew at Powle. Begs
him to prefer Thos. Gye to be a captain on the sea; there are few
better in England, and he has small living now that the writer's park
is disparked. Here is a Dutch gentleman called Crosebek, whose
wages, with those of other Dutchmen who are absent, are detained by
the writer, on the King's warrant. Desires him, if Crosebek fails in
his suit to have wages again, to move Mr. Wroysely or others of the
Council, that the writer may have a new warrant only for them that
be here now. Has received the full amount of his warrant, and some
of them are in their own country and may not return. Begs commendations
to his brother Deny. Blechynlee, 26 Aug.

681. Rutland and his Council to the Council.
Yesterday, after writing from Darneton, made such haste that he
reached Newcastle at 7 p.m. At Darneton, received letters from the
King of the 22nd, to fulfil the contents of which more money must be
sent with speed. Meanwhile will be doing with what he has. Encloses
letters received from the North this Saturday, which he dared not
open, as they were addressed to the Council. Asks instructions about
opening letters. Grain is here very dear, and must be sent to Berwick
from elsewhere, or the garrisons there and Rutland's company could
not continue. A great force sent without provision would consume all
the victual at Berwick and Carlisle, and Newcastle is so destitute of
grain that it cannot be provided in any short time. Received no copy of
Sir Thos. Wharton's letters in the King's of 22 Aug. Last night wrote
to Berwick and Carlisle to know the state of the Borders. Newcastle-upon-Tyne,

683. Wallop to the Council.
In his last, of the 24th, wrote of Mons. de Vandosme's camp, and
that, on the return of his man sent to the Great Master, he expected
to learn more of Mons. Dorleance, the prince Orrenge, Mons. de Bure,
and the Clevoiez. This morning his said servant returned, saying that
Orleans had taken Ivoyre, but his further intention was uncertain.
The Clevoiez were, within these two days, beside Mesiers, and purpose
to join Vandosme, who returns towards Flanders to besiege Bappame.
Orrenge and De Bure have broken up their camp in Luxemburg and
march towards De Rieulx. The servant saw some of their horsemen
already at Doway and Arras; and 4,000 lanceknights are near Doway,
and De Rieulx goes thither with all his horsemen to begin his camp.
Sends the servant to declare further, and encloses a letter he brought
from De Rieulx.
Yesterday mustered the 300 men here in crew, viz., 200 of the lord
Deputy's and 100 under the treasurer and the lieutenant of the Castle, all
right tall men, well ordered and warlike appointed. Would that all
come to Guisnes were so well ordered. Most of them "came without
swords, in white coats homely trimmed, saving those that came with
Mr. Ponynges, and those sent from Mr. Long, who be tall men and
right warlike trimmed, yet lacking swords the more part of them. And
those that came from my lord Chancellor and Mr. Chancellor of
th'Augmentations, be tall men, and many fair archers. I was so bold
to write unto them both to send them swords, as also cloth to make them
hose of their colours." The bp. of Ely's men will show better when
well trimmed, and the Bishop has authorised their captain to
bestow upon them what Wallop thinks good. If others do the like he
will soon amend them. There are no swords here. Calais, 26 Aug.

688. Sir Ant. St. Leger to Henry VIII.
On 31 July, Desmond arrived at Waterford, whereupon St. Leger
(who was in Ossorie pacifying differences between Ormond and the lord of
Upper Ossorie) came to Kilkenny and received the King's letters from him.
He declared his noble entertainment. Intend, within ten or twelve days,
to advance towards his country to help good order there and in the towns
of Cork and Kinsale, and will then "spend a time for the perfection of
Leinster." Sends a present of hawks (specified). Does not write of
occurrants, as the Council is writing. If Irishmen's promises are to be
trusted, Oneil, Obrien, the lord of Upper Ossorie and others shall visit the
King ere long. Oneil's eldest and best son is with St. Leger for that purpose,
and has sent for his father to repair to Dublin.
Is ashamed so often to write for money, but affairs here are sore hindered
for lack of it. Would have been in Odonelles country and Connaught ere
this but for lack of money. The old lady of Ormonde is dead. The lord
late of Kilmanan is sick and will hardly escape. His death will save the
King 500 mks. st. of pension. Certifies that the late master of Any, for
whom, as the King wrote, Desmond sued to be bp. of Emolie (which bpric.
lies about Limerick, where he was born), is a very honest man and will do
much good in the country. Dublin, 27 Aug. 34 Hen. VIII. Signed.
P.S.—Since the above was written, Oneil arrived at Dublin and declared
his wish to visit the King, and how some had dissuaded him because of the
report of war with France and Scotland, but that nothing would let him
to go if he had money to furnish himself honestly. Borrowed 200 mks. for
him of the merchants, to be repaid in kine; to levy which his son and
divers of the retinue are now sent. Asks whether to suffer more Irishmen
to go thither. Is the bolder to do so because the King wrote that such of
the nobility as sued for great things should be sent over. Trusts that, ere
Michaelmas, Obrien, lord FizWilliam and the baron of Upper Ossorie,
before called Magilpatrike, shall be with the King. The latter brings his
son, a goodly child, to give to the King, and will repair with Oneil or not
long after. Signed.

689. Deputy Chancellor, and Vice-Treasurer Of Ireland to
At their arrival at the lord of Upper Ossorie's house, to which they
repaired on the 1st inst., the Deputy received a letter from Obrien declaring
his wish to go to the King. His going would have a good effect
on other Irishmen, as the King's entertainment of Desmond has. Wrote
before, advising the establishment of a council of learned men about
Limerick and Waterford. Explain, at length, how this can be done
without charge to the King, by appointing to it those who have
fees out of the liberty of Wexford and by the resumption of the
charter of the city of Waterford, for which, as Parliament begins
shortly after Michaelmas, they send an act of Parliament, to be
returned under the Great Seal with the King's letter addressed
to the whole Parliament to pass it. The reason that no others of
the Council are privy to this letter is lest they of Waterford should hear
of it and make suit to the contrary, "for they give here so large fees that
they be greatly favoured."
Give a scheme for the establishment of a resident Council at Dublin, by
utilising the Cathedral church of Christchurch, which is unnecessary, as
there is the other well endowed Cathedral of St. Patrick's. Have stayed
delivering the King's grant to the late prior and canons of Christchurch to
be a dean and canons, and have spoken with the Dean, (fn. 2) now appointed,
an Englishman born, who would take a pension of 50l. until preferred,
within two years, to a benefice of that value in England. Ask instructions
in this. Dublin, 27 Aug. 34 Hen. VIII. Signed : Antony Sentleger :

690. Government Of Ireland.
The King having exhausted infinite treasure for the reformation
of Ireland without success, now that most of the inhabitants are brought
to obedience, it is very necessary to set forth the order ensuing, viz. :—
(1) Councils should be established in the West and North, the earls
of Ormond and Desmond and the abp. of Casshell being of the
former, and Oneill, Odonyll and others of the nobility there of the
latter. (2) The captains retained here should be stationed at
Knockfergus or Wolderflitt, Alloon in Westmeath, Wiklow and Arklow.
Arklow should be had, in exchange, from Ormond; and, with a
captain there, most of Leinster, "being the gall of this land," would be
reformed. (3) The bps. of Dublin and Meath and such as favour the
Gospel should instruct the Irish bishops and cause them to renounce
Popish doctrine. (4) The pardoning of felonies for fines, and other enormities
used here among the Irish, make the King's laws sound strange.
It should therefore be ordered that all unlawful customs be abolished,
and the "moderation" of the King's laws referred to the Deputy
and Council. (5) Religious houses under Oneyll, Odonyll and
other Irish lords should be suppressed and suits to Rome prohibited,
and search made at Olderflitt or Knockfergus to enforce this. (6)
Irish Scots, called "Redshankes," daily come into the north of Ireland
and purchase castles and peels on the sea coast. They should
be expelled from the country, "the rather because they greatly
covet to populate the same, being most vile in their living of any nation
next Irishmen." (7) The captain at Knockfergus or Wolderflytt should
have a bark to keep the seas and prevent the coming in of Scots. Signed :

691. Wallop to the Council.
Being at Calais but two days, some disorder has been among the
soldiers here, and therefore he has taken order with Mr. Ponynges to
appoint a provost marshal. With the advice of the Treasurer and Surveyor
chose Mr. Awdeley, who said he would gladly do any service to which
he was appointed, but thought himself unmeet for that room, "being of
his own nature too pitiful." Thinks he would accept it if the King were
to write to him to do so, and he would here gain experience to execute the
room for a greater number, even a camp of 10,000; but his living should
be somewhat augmented.
Encloses a letter received this day from Mons. de Torsy (contents recapitulated).
The malefactors who lately misused themselves within the
King's pale deserved greater punishment. Asks how to use Frenchmen
or Burgundians who take each other, or their cattle, within the King's pale.
Last week took 10 or 12 Burgundians, who had taken certain Frenchmen
and their cattle, which Wallop caused to be restored, but did not punish
the men. Their guide was an Englishman, who is detained in prison here,
although he has long served in their wars and was a soldier in Tourneham
when it was given up, against his opinion. He is "a right tall personage
and hardy fellow called John Baker, sometime a soldier in Callais." Asks
what to do with him.
Once again reminds them that guns and gunners are needed for the
travers wall, now finished, and other bulwarks. Guisnes, 27 Aug.

Has received his letters, and has "tenu en cul de fosse lez malfaicteurs

trouver es pais de pardesa, et partir incontinent." Desires to live in
friendship with him; and no more footmen shall go into his country
without written licence. Had news last night (arssoir) that Mons. de
Vendosme has sent home part of his footmen, who were levied on the
frontier, retaining some of the men of the ordinary pay and reinforcing
the garrisons of horsemen. Yvoy is taken by composition
honourable for the Burgundians, who were 1,500 lanceknights, 1,000 footmen
of the country and 130 men of arms; who left, baggage safe, mounted
and armed, upon oath not to serve the Emperor against the King for two
years. Longueval's band has arrived here, having by the way attacked
and defeated eleven ensigns of the prince of Orange's lanceknights and
almost captured the Prince. Ardres, 27 Aug. Signed.

693. Edmond Harvel to Henry VIII.
Wrote on the 9th inst. A strange case has since been discovered,
of execrable prodition, by two secretaries of the Signory and
Augustin Labondy, sometime factor for Cesare Fregosa; who, corrupted
by the French king, have been long disclosing all the state secrets to the
Frenchmen and Turks, who thus knew the Venetian ambassador's secret
commission to give Napoli and Malversia to the Turk, (fn. 3) but with extreme
contention. The Turk then was so greedy of peace that those fortresses
need not have been given if the Turk had not known from Rincon, the
French orator, the Venetians' deliberation; and the delivery of them has
cost the Venetians such loss and dishonour that their indignation can be
imagined. The French are now incredibly destestable here, being called
dogs and proditors of Christendom and monsters. Of the secretaries, who
are cousins named Cavaza, one is fled disguised as a friar, the other
is taken. Labondi fled to the French ambassador's house, the 19th
inst., where the officers of the Signory sent to demand him were resisted
and hurt. The Signory besieged the house all that night,
and next day, upon their threat to burn it, the French orator delivered
them Labondi, who is put to extreme torments to discover his adherents,
he knowing all the corrupted men here, and being payer
for such practices. The secretary confessed all he knew without
torment. Describes how the ambassador's house was beset for three
days, and also the honour paid to the accuser. These things came to
light by the diligence of Loigi Badoar, who concluded the peace with the
Turk, and, being suspected of using fraud in his legacy, was imprisoned
shortly after his return from Constantinople. He has now cleared himself.
The Stroci who were settled here are commanded to avoid the Dominion,
being in public hate, both for the taking of Maran and the French faction
which they follow.
Letters from Constantinople, of 26 July, give variable news, the French
affirming that the Turk's navy of 120 galleys, 80 of which are to serve the
French, shall issue about the 12th or 15th inst.; and the Venetians concluding
that it will not issue this year, which is more probable, as the season
is too far past for galleys. A bassa with many horses is at Sophia, not far
from the Drava, to succour Buda if necessary. The Christian host which
goes to Buda is flourishing and confident. Ferdinando is denied the
money he demanded at Noremberg, he being esteemed an evil husband in
money matters. The duke of Pranswike is fled to Noremberg with three
horses, leaving the Landgrave victorious; who will afterwards convert his
host of 40,000 men to Buda, or else to Flanders, in the Emperor's favour.
The Marquis of Guasto intends to take the field with 10,000 Almains and
as many Spaniards and Italians.
The Bishop of Rome sends Card. Contarin to the Emperor and Sadoleto
to the French king; but Contarin was on "in point of death." The Bishop
will intimate a General Council, "by all November," in Trent; but men
laugh at such vanities. The Bishop is come to Perusa, in despair because
the Imperial orator presses him to publish censures against the French
king as enemy of the Christian state.
The Signory salute the King. They are in great heaviness with these
processes and examinations, and are sure the Turks "will not navigate
against winter." Venice, 27 Aug. 1542.

other provision is sent Northumberland is in great danger, for God will
not send "provision of the ground" for three weeks yet. As the
Borders in Northumberland are weakened by the late misfortune, has
written for 400 Yorkshire men to the President at York. Intends to
remain at Alnwick.

P.S.—The Scottish herald comes not in post, but on his own horse. He
said one of the causes of his coming was for safe conduct for two ambassadors
to be sent out of Scotland, and showed a packet addressed to their
ambassador. On receipt of Eure's letters concerning the entry of John
Car, of Wark, sent 100 men thither under Thos. Waterton and Nic. Tempest,
albeit Thos. Gowre says Wark castle is not tenable. Begs to know
the King's pleasure, for they are two honest gentlemen he has sent thither.
George Heron says 2,000 men are come to Jedwourth and Kelsale, whereof
his father, prisoner in Scotland, sent him word that he saw 1,000 horse.

Has just received his letter in cipher of the 16th. Since
L'Aubespine's return has received his letters of the 1st, 5th, and 10th;
and delayed replying to him upon L'Aubespine's coming, because desirous
of speaking first with the English ambassador, who had gone before to
Lyons, as Marillac would see by the reply sent on the 10th, with a
letter to the King of England, of which a copy is enclosed in case the
despatch has not come to his hands, which was entrusted to the English
ambassador. Has since sent another despatch on the 25th (copy enclosed).
Has, by his last cipher, seen how part of the army by sea
there had left, equipped for war, to convoy the wool fleet which goes
every year to Calais. As such an equipage could not be for that alone,
Marillac shall learn what has become of it; and also if the rest of the
equipage has gone towards Scotland with the men and provisions of
war of which he writes. He shall likewise watch where the men of war
who are levied march; and, if possible, advertise the King of Scotland
of everything. Notes what he writes of the lord Privy Seal and milord
de Chesney coming hither. He shall write "ce qui en sera;" and,
above all, give continual advice to Vendosme and Du Biez, to take
order on the frontier of Picardy. Will not fail to do as Marillac writes.

Besides what Chapuys will see by preceding letters, the king of
France has been so shameless as to publish war against him, since the
10th ult., in worse terms than could be used against pagans, and has
already invaded Roussillon and laid a siege, which the Emperor hopes
will get him as little profit as his past enterprises. Received letters
yesterday from his ambassador at Rome, stating that the Pope was
despatching Cardinal Contareno to him and Card. Sadolet to France, to
persuade peace; and is sending both to Rome and Contareno, to stop
his coming, as he will not be received. This proves that the French
king on the one side "fait le brave" and on the other seeks to resume
the practice of the peace. Chapuys may declare this to the King of
England as seems best; and shall forward the Emperor's letters to the

of that expedition will be seen before this reaches him, directs him to take
leave about Halontyde and return home through Almayne. He shall
enquire of the baron of Heidick "seriously" how many Almains he
could bring to serve the King, and when he could be in England
or at Calais, and whence and how he would come, getting his answer

him with victuals; and to-day wrote again to Eure and Lawson, for that

article of the Council's said letters. Wrote to-day to the earl of Westmoreland,

This morning is advertised that Mons. de Vandosme, Mons. de

brought with him the lanceknights that were with Mons. Dorleance and
the Clevoiez that came from Antwerp, conducted by Mons. Longvalle, who
is also there. Lanceknights and Clevoiez together number 14,000, and
1,400 horsemen. The adventurers and legioners that were with Vandosme
are all discharged. Those of Mons. de Kerkey's band, who should have
come to Arde, are appointed to Hesding. The horsemen with Vandosme,
besides the said Clevoiez, are but 200 men of arms. Cannot learn their
intention, but yesterday sent one to the Clevoiez to know it. Learns, by
him that brought these news, that Mons. Dorleance is retired; and the
bailly of Guisnes, at his late being at Arde, brought like report (enclosed).

Being at Arde this Monday, 28 Aug., a friend showed me that Mons. de
Focquelsolles was at Terrewyn with 30 men of arms of Mons. de Bies' band;
and that Mons. de Vandome re-assembles his camp, to which Captain
Longavall and many Clevoys, lanceknights, and Danes are appointed. The
Danes are 600 horsemen, who carry haccabuts at the arson of their saddles,
swords on the one side and daggers on the other, and, in their hands,
weapons like boar spears, such as the French call espues. The band of the
duke of Orleans is bestowed in garrisons at Yvoye, Tienville in Lewsenbourghe
and other frontier fortresses there. There shall shortly come to
Arde 30 men of arms of Mons. de Kerkee's band to join the 50 of Mons. de
Torsee's now there. A weak place by the lower gate shall be immediately
"rampared," casemates of brick called moyneaux made to
flank the dikes and the dikes cleansed from the Green bulwark upwards.

Yesterday, in his journey from Morpeth, many gentlemen of

of the Borders and not seek revenge, as directed in the 3rd article of the
Council's letters of 26 Aug. Charged them to keep this secret. To-day or
to-morrow, will consult the wisest of these parts about naming deputy
wardens to supply the room of Sir Cuthbert Ratclif. Robt. Colingwoode

home again; but as they are taken to Edinburgh, they now say there is no
means but by ransom. Encloses letters of John Carr, of Wark, with news
of Scotland, and of Sir Geo. Lawson, showing the grain in Berwick.
Gunners should be sent for the fortresses on the Borders, as none may be
spared out of Berwick. A great number of French crowns and other
strange coins, broken and lacking weight, have been sent hither, at which
the poor people, not being acquainted with any such strange gold, make
much refusal. The soldiers, too, have uttered them to their loss, and there
are daily complaints. Begs them to send other money hereafter, and
mostly in silver. Alnwick castle, 31 Aug.
