Advertises his "good lordship" that on Thursday, St. Matthew's
Day, the Small Gallion, Dragon, and other small vessels with ordnance,
corn, &c., weighed anchor from Yarmouth with a fair wind for Berwick,
but a great storm came on, with foul misty weather, which dissevered
them. The Dragon lost her boat and two men, another small vessel had
to throw overboard 1 qr. of wheat, and the Mary Flower, one Gervise
master, laden deep with ordnance, grounded on the Cocles, and had to
throw a brass piece overboard, where five days before the Thomas Dowtty
was totally lost. The Mary Flower has a great leak, and is transferring
her ordnance and stuff to another ship at Yarmouth, and we tarry here
for its coming. Scarborough, 26 Sept.

849. Wallop to the Council.
Wrote of late that the footmen who served Vandosme in
Boullonoies should repair to Bullen for wages, and then lie on the Borders
about Hesding, fearing the coming of the Burgundians; and that Mons.
de Beez was gone thitherward before. Learns now that Vandosme has
begun his camp again at Daussey, beside Dorlance, assembling all horse
and foot that can be made in Picardy and Bullonoyes, and all the
Clevoiez and Allemaygnes that were with Mons. d'Orleans, saving those
that so shamefully surrendered the town of Luxembourgh, whom the
French king has "abandoned" out of his countries. All the towns that
Mons. d'Orleans had gotten are now in the Emperor's hands, and the
Burgundians marching towards these parts. It is bruited in France that
the Dolphin has gotten Perpynion, and 20,000 on both sides are slain.
Was advertised sundry ways of the late assembly De Beez made for a
course in the county of Guisnes; and, to feel what he would say, wrote
to him that henceforth he would not trust their peace, "seeing they
would make such sudden invasions, but would ride a hawking as I have
before done in time of war with a good 'skulte' of horsemen." Encloses
his reply, made yesterday. With Mr. Rous, treasurer, and the Surveyor,
takes musters of the 300 footmen at Calais to-day; and the lord
Deputy and others of the Council do the like at Guisnes on Thursday.

their power of horsemen and footmen being now away." Newneham

Have reported to the King the Commissioners' letters of the
[24th] (fn. 1) inst. Where they desire to know which two of them shall
repair to the Borders if they agree with the Scots; remind them that
the King named them "all four or two at the least," but since the lord
Privy Seal may have business one day in another place, and should be
here to prepare for it, his former appointment being, as the King thinks,
much altered, he is to return hither, and the rest to resort to the
Borders, where, after they have done, Mr. Browne must attend for the
king of Scots. Send a letter for John Cary, vice-admiral, to assemble
the ships of war at such place as the Commissioners appoint. The French
are preparing ships at Havre to send into Scotland, and a Scot has conveyed
powder and munition in a hoy from Flanders. The King rigs
forth two more ships for the war, which shall depart in 3 or 4 days.

852. Chapuys to the Queen Of Hungary.
Has received her letters of the 11th, 16th, and 19th inst. with
the despatch addressed to Thoison d'Or, which he at once forwarded
to Bristol, where he will doubtless still be. To-day, in pursuance of
her orders, has been to the King to give him the news of that country,
so as to induce him to grant the aid. To remove his chief excuse
—that he has no news from Spain and knows not how he stands
with the Emperor, has shown him private letters from merchants stating
that before the 10th ult. the bp. of Westminster had taken his leave
with as favourable an answer as could be wished. After much discourse
the King showed himself glad to hear of the Emperor's successes, and had
no doubt the French would get well beaten about Perpignan if the
garrison were not scant of provisions. As to the aid, he answered as
before, saying that if it were as the letters stated, some of his people
would have brought the news, the matter being of such importance;
and nothing Chapuys could say about the bad weather and contrary
winds prevented his complaining over and over again of the delay in
answering him, especially for the enterprise of which Mons. du Reulx
spoke to Chapuys, and that the best opportunity was lost, and it
suited him very ill to remain in suspense, not knowing how he stood with
the Emperor, while the French, taking him for the Emperor's ally, had
done mischief at Guisnes, which Du Byes lately thought of invading.
The captain of Guisnes (fn. 2) was incessantly desiring licence to invade the
French territory, now when the French garrisons were all gone to Dorlens
(Doullens); but he would not grant it till he had a good answer from
the Emperor. Things might still be arranged to the Emperor's advantage,
and when that answer came an interview ought to be held
between the Queen and him.
Asked him, if it was true that Yvoix had been recovered from
the enemy, what our army ought to do next. He said they ought
at once to march to Mazieres, and lay waste the country without stopping
before any fortified town or penetrating further into France, for the
French might give them opportunities in order to cut off their retreat.
He was sure that the French, expecting him to take the field, had made
up their minds not to put obstacles in his way, till he had passed the
Somme; and he thought Vendosme, if he took the field, should be
allowed to engulf himself in the Emperor's territory, and it would not
be difficult to destroy him with the troops sent by the Queen to
Hainault. If, therefore, powers came from the Queen to treat with
him he would be glad to furnish men and money to any amount.
Got him by and by to speak about Scotland, to feel what likelihood
there was of peace or war with that country. He told Chapuys confidentially
that he believed there would be no war, for the Scotch ambassadors
had already agreed to release all the prisoners, and make
some compensation for damage done. They had even agreed to a
permanent league without reserving France, as they have always done
hitherto, and promised that their King would come to him in this city
before Christmas. The only difficulty was about hostages, about which
the ambassadors asked for two days' respite to send to Scotland, offering
meanwhile to remain themselves as hostages. The King expects
answer by Sunday next, and says that it will be greater honour for
him to achieve this than to gain a battle. Agreed with him as to
that, provided he could only rely on the Scots, for though, now they
were alone and without aid from France and the other allies, they
spoke fair, they might become more intractable later if France, Sweden,
or Denmark assisted them. The King said that the talk of the said
league was only a brag, and when the King of Scots came hither all
would be set in order and surety. Had some further conversation on
small topics, which he has no time to report. London, 27 Sept. 1543.

853. Commissioners at York to Henry VIII.
Late yesternight the ambassadors received answer from their
master. Met this morning and demanded what answer they had of the
amity and meeting. They showed two commissions, the one to treat
of the meeting, restraining the place to York or Newcastle; the other
a power to remain in England until the articles concluded for the meeting
were performed, revoking former commissions to treat of any peace.
Showed them, at great length, that since they limited the meeting
to places which Henry would never condescend to (for, after coming
to York last year and being deluded, he would surely never come
hither at this season), and their commission to treat of amity was revoked,
although princes at breach were never wont to meet without peace
or truce first concluded, it was plain that the army must proceed in
their journey. They, being sorry the matter was taken so hotly, offered
to agree that their master should come to London or thereabouts. Said
that was but trifling, seeing they had no commission to bind him; and
at last they brought out their instructions, signed by their master and
under his signet, that, in case of sticking, they might agree to other
place than the commission named. Told them that was a warrant to
them to pass their commission, but not to us to conclude. They said
that at the meeting all should undoubtedly be concluded touching rebels
and bounds, and the amity so made that they should for no prince or
potentate living break with England. Declared to them the article in
last instructions showing how France in the last treaty left them out. (fn. 3)
They asserted that "at this there would be no sticking at your meeting."
Told them a treaty made at the meeting would be vain, their master
not being at liberty. They answered that their master in his own realm
might make a commission to some of his subjects to treat and conclude
amity, bearing date in his realm before he came forth, which he, at his
coming, might make more strait, and then at his return confirm; whereas
if they sticked to conclude amity before the meeting, the whole Council
of Scotland would say What needs any meeting? Here Larmonthe said
that albeit we set so little by the instructions they declared your nephew's
inward heart, whereas the commission regarded outwardly his honor.
Asked and obtained a copy (herewith); and, after much debate, they said
they would despatch to their master, in all haste, for absolute commission
without determining place; and offered to lie as pledges till all were
performed, saying they thought their master would be at York about
St. Andrew's Day, and with Henry before Christmas, and desiring that
upon conclusion of the meeting the armies might be dissolved. Stuck
to have the prisoners restored first of all. They replied that immediately
upon the dissolving of the armies they should be restored, and
would be restored before if Henry wrote to demand them.
They desire us to write for a commission for this meeting, as our
commission speaks of peace and truce only. They will agree that their
master shall come to London. Their Queen looks to take her chamber
about Martinmas, and after the King sees "what will come of her,"
he will set forth. They say it cannot be brought to pass that earls
should come as pledges. York, 27 Sept. Signed by Norfolk, Southampton,

Write to the King of their conference with the ambassadors of
Scotland. Enclose copy of a letter they have received from John Care.
Hear nothing of victual ships from London or Norfolk, or of 2,200 of
Norfolk's men out of Norfolk and Suffolk, save that 240 are with
difficulty come to Newcastle. The rest, shipped on Thursday last, were
driven back. Remind them of the uncertainty of the coming of the
ordnance and victual, which must be ground, brewed, and baked after it
comes; also that the ill time of year comes sooner there than in the
south, and through excessive rain, much corn here yet stands in the
ground. Are most sorrowful at the state of things. Wrote in their last
to know which two of them should repair to the Borders. The King
shall have no loss by the tract of time taken with the Scots, provided they
have his answer before Tuesday next, when money for conduct and coats
is appointed to be paid to all except those who came with the Commissioners
or from Wales. Have informed Suffolk of their proceedings,
and received his answer that the King shall be at no great charges until
he hears further. York, 27 Sept., 7 p.m. Signed by Norfolk, Southampton,

Desires them to get him appointed one of the two that shall go
northwards, and to consider that, to punish offenders there, he should
have an honest company with, him, for he thinks many will be found
faulty. In the event of agreement, if the King of Scots make such offer
as he did to the earl of Northumberland for the punishment of Lidersdale,
we doing the like for Tindale and Ridsdale, it should not be
refused. If appointed to convey the King of Scots to the King, he must
have support, as this journey has plucked the bottom out of his purse :

856. Southampton to Wriothesley.
Our letters to the King and to the Council show the present state
with the Scots. No more victual has arrived; so that, if the King
refuses these overtures and we go forward, I pray God that there be no
lack of necessaries. Sir Thos. Wharton and others of experience in
these marches, think that, at this late season of the year, in the country
we have to enter (being barren, wild, cold and utterly ungarnished with
wood) we shall lack fire to dress our victual; for they have unthacked
their houses, intending, if we enter, either to burn the timber or carry
it away. It is to be trusted that our ships may arrive in time with
bread and drink and cheese; yet when that is spent and we driven to
seethe or roast, and the men to lie on the wet ground, if we lack fire to
dry them or warm their meat, I fear it will prove a pitiful case. Assures
him that every man is willing to serve. Allowing time to bake and brew
after the ships arrived, it will be three weeks ere they can enter. John
Caries letter describes the mischance to the ship (fn. 4) with ordnance.
Had written thus far when Lermowthe sent Rhosse herald, requiring
me to write to the King that if his master come all shall be wrought as
he desires, and to beg him therefore not to stick in any light matters.

Christian host is gone to give battle to Pest and Buda. There are 7,000
Turks in Pest, and 20,000 in Buda, but ill conditioned through pestilence
and famine. The Christians abound in everything needful. Ferdinando
goes from Vienna to Buda. A great number of Bohems have joined
the Christian host, and 8,000 Hungarian horsemen are expected. The
Marquis of Marignan commands the navy on the Danube, with 10,000
Italians under him. Five thousand Almains have gone from Geane

862. Henry VIII. to the Commissioners at York.
Has received theirs of the 27th inst., with the schedule delivered
by the Scottish ambassadors. As the Scots vary from the whole purport
of their former promises, seeking apparently to gain time, he will briefly
signify the conditions upon which the Commissioners shall arrest, and
without which they must, with God's help, go forward in the intended
enterprise and do, if not all that was determined at their departure, at
least as much as seems feasible. First, the ambassadors must agree, in
writing, to deliver the prisoners in Scotland at once, before the discharge
of our army; for otherwise they might use them as hostages to redeem
their pledges left here, and if they mean well they will not refuse this after
so many fair offers to send them as a present. Second, they must agree,
in writing, that their King shall repair to London before Christmas next,
"without ifs or ands of his wife" (which might minister uncertainty,
"considering the common error of women in reckoning their time"), or
of further desire to be made at his coming to York, they three and some
other nobleman (if possible) remaining as pledges. And since they will
now agree upon no amity, but refer all to their King's coming, the
pledges shall remain, after his return home, until his ratification of what
shall be agreed is sent hither.
If the ambassadors, having commission to do so, roundly agree upon
these points, you shall, upon knowledge that they have dissolved their
army, dissolve ours both by sea and land, as instructed, and the garrisons
after your repair to the Borders.
If, on the other hand, they will not fully agree, but seek new delays,
you shall assemble the whole army and set forward. And if, for lack
of victual (whereof we think that, by the time the army is assembled,
you shall have as much as you thought necessary at your departure hence)
or because of "the extreme weather and rain that hath fallen," you
cannot accomplish the enterprise as first devised, you shall do some
notable exploit in Scotland, devastating the Marsh and the Borders, and
overthrowing [Lowmaben and] (fn. 5) all other holds thereabouts, and at the
same time furnishing forth all the ships to go to the isles of Orkney and
Shetland, and devastate the corn and cattle there, (fn. 6) and sending frequent
news of your proceedings. In case the Scots, by their refusal of the
above two articles, declare how they have dissembled with us, some
honorable enterprise must be made to make them feel their fault, and
make us think your pains and our money well employed. If the journey
proceed, Suffolk must be warned to repair with speed to the Borders,
according to the former appointment.

say their King will tarry until the Queen be delivered about

begs that he may meanwhile repair to the King for instructions, and to
