84. The Privy Council to Wallop and Others.
The King has seen their letters dated Anglefontaine, the 22nd inst., and, considering the state of the duke of Ascot and the Great Master, thinks himself not bound to aid them, but (as the enemy lies so near, and Seymour was told by Scorye, in the Regent's name, that either the Emperor or the Prince of Orange would join them within 14 days, when they would be able either to besiege Laundersey or invade the enemy), they are to show the Duke and Great Master that, for the Emperor's sake, the King allows them to remain, trusting to Scory's promise that they will shortly be enabled to do some exploit and not lie wasting treasure and eating up their own country.
Since your departure the men of Calais and Guisnes have destroyed Ardentyne, Luubringham, Odingham, Oldersel, Whitsandbay, Beverkey, Basingham, Lelkey, the parish of Sount and the rest of Marguison. Six of the King's ships took two and scattered the rest of the 16 French men of war who drove the admiral of Sluse into Calais road before your departing; and, 10 days ago, hearing of 9 Frenchmen on the Scotch coast, the King sent out ships which took four of them, the Marten, James and Françoys of Dieppe, each well trimmed with ordnance and manned by 100 men, and another not so strong. These occurrents are to be shown to the Great Master and Duke of Ascott. Asheridge, 27 Aug. 1543.

85. Sadler to Suffolk, Parr and Tunstall.
Has received from them the King's letters dated at the Moore, 24th inst., but, as the Governor is on the other side of the water with the Cardinal, cannot speak with him till he returns (which will be in 3 or 4 days), and then, if he and the Cardinal are agreed, as is expected, it will be useless to persuade him against the Cardinal, but, if not, he will be easily persuaded, unless lack of money stay him; for the Church "have" gathered great sums of money to aid the other party and, although consenting to the peace and marriage, mind "only the rupture of the same," and secretly work to hinder the Governor from getting hostages for the marriage, so that, besides the prisoners, he is not likely to get past two or three. The Governor's delay in sending the commissioners is to get more hostages, and he much trusts to a respite of 15 days; but Cassils, who tarries behind, told Sadler yesterday that, rather than adventure the breach of the treaties, the Governor would enter such hostages as he could get before Friday night next. Before leaving, the Governor prayed Sadler to advertise him as soon as the King's answer arrived touching the respite; which, as they know, he will now pass over in silence. The laird of Fyvie will make haste, so that the treaties may be ratified within the time limited. He is a man of 1800 mks. Scottish (almost 500 mks. st.), "a great living in this country," and well affected to the King.
Has received theirs of the 26th (fn. 2) inst. and perceives that they have already advertised the King of the Swepestake, so that he need not enquire thereof. The French ship chased into Dundee is a small vessel. Another called the Falcon, a fair ship, was chased into Montrose on this side of Aberdeen. None of the King's ships followed them. Cannot hear of the Sacker and the rest, and is glad their lordships can make so good account of six of them. There were not past 3 or 4 more of that conserve. Other Scottish ships affirm that the King of Denmark has set forth such a navy as Sadler wrote of. As soon as the Governor returns Sadler will move him for the safe-conduct for grain, which Suffolk writes of. Edinburgh, 27 Aug. Signed.

86. Wotton to Henry VIII.
The Regent having made great shift to borrow money without interest, which is hard to get, departed towards Mechelyn on Saturday and goes this day to Lovain, where Wotton will overtake her to-morrow. Last time he spoke with her she minded to go no further, for at Maestricht and Dieste "they die a little of the plague"; but now he hears that she will go to Luyke, and be nearer the Emperor "which is all her desire." The Prince of Orenge has taken a little town and castle called Montjoye and slain all that defended it. It lies, in the highest part of Gulik towards the forest of Ardenne and Luxemburgh, commodiously for the Clevois to do the Emperor hurt. This day came tidings to the merchants that the Emperor took Duren on Friday last, after 4 or 5 assaults, and slew all the men in it because they yielded not at the first warning, although afterwards they offered so to do. Others say that it was won at the first assault by the Spaniards and Italians; and yet there were 5 ensigns of footmen and 300 horsemen within. The Emperor spared no gunpowder and spent above 500 shot upon it. The merchants learn that Barbarossa besieges Nice, wherein is the Duke (fn. 3) himself. Andwerpe, 27 Aug. 1543.

The King has received his letters; and reserves to his own use all such "checkes" as Sir John Withrington and Sir Robt. Ellerker have incurred by absence from their offices at Berwick. Eure shall send for them to reside upon their offices, or else the King will plant others in their place. Dunstable, 28 Aug.

88. Chapuys to Granvelle.
Sends a letter which this Council have written him, showing what little news there is since his last, and also the difficulty of satisfying and living with the English, and that he was not wrong in what he last wrote to the Emperor of their suspicious nature. Has [sent] a man to satisfy them and will advertise Granvelle of his report. This King has lately complained, among those of his Chamber, more bitterly (aigrement) with regard to the subject of the said letter, and especially that all things which the said letter sings are not confided to him.
It seems that the Scots have not yet sent the hostages promised by the treaty, and that things are not altogether so peaceable and sure there as was presumed. London, 28 Aug. 1543.

92. Wallop to the Council.
Since coming to the Burgonyons, we have lain still in camp, fearing the French king's power. Lately heard that the French king was departed from Cowcye castle towards Raynes in Champaigne; and thereupon urged the duke of Arschot and Great Master to do some enterprise, abiding the Emperor's answer. They said they would gladly; and, hearing that night that 200 light horse, Italians and Albanoys, lay at Fontsome, 6 leagues off, and most of the French king's power was departed, the Duke, Great Master and Wallop concluded to go with 6,000 foot and 2,000 horse, leaving the camp in charge of Mr. Seymour, our marshal. Mons. de Lyekes was appointed to give the onsetting to the said light horse, and the rest to enter the country between Chasteau in Cambresis and the duke of Vandome's castle of Bougheyn, where were many great villages and strong churches. Started at 5 p.m. on Saturday 26 Aug., Mons. de Lyekes having with him Bowmer and 50 of the Northern horse, and two of Wallop's horsemen who could speak French. By 4 o'clock next morning, the Great Master and Wallop were in the appointed country and, after long waiting for the Duke's coming, began to fire the villages, and had churches yielded to them, when Lyekes retired towards them in great fear, having had a great overthrow. Describes the battle, in which the Italians and Albanoys were surprised in bed and beaten out of the village, but rallied and, aided by others who lay in an abbey adjoining, returned and completely discomfited the Burgundians. De Lyekes had 600 Burgundian horse and 800 foot besides the 50 Northern men, and has lost 100 horsemen and almost all the foot. The enemy could not have numbered more than 150, for 50 of their horses were carried off at the outset. Upon news of this the Duke and Great Master gave up the idea of going to Bougheyn and returned to Camp.
Yesterday, the 25th (sic) inst., was an alarm between the Allemen and the Englishmen; and the latter were almost into the Allemen's camp, bestowing arrows upon them (and they bestowing shot amongst us), when, by the help of Mr. Crumwell, Mr. Carow, and other gentlemen, we caused them to retire. "And at my retire (fn. 4) to the body of the Camp I found the Allemen in a fair square battle, and ours in like case"; and, but for the travail of the Duke and Great Master there had been a battle. They stood thus more than an hour, each party making strange which should retire first, while the Great Master and others "hurled hither and thither, persuading first the one part and then the other to retire," saying the stronger might with honor retire first "which they thought to be us." Finally both retired at a signal given, by the Great Master holding up his hat. I declared to the Duke and Great Master, who supped with me, the folly of the Allemen colonel who, after the skirmish was pacified, entered our camp with a dozen of his "harcbuzyers" and seeing me with my sword drawn "offered to shoot at me with his harcbouze. Mr. Crumwell, perceiving the same leapt unto him and put by the shot; which his (sic) great folly, if good order had not been, had been despatched, for Master Carow was minded to run him through with his sword; and young Seyntlow, perceiving him to level at me, did the same towards him, and, as God would, his gun failed to take fire or else he had surely slain him, whereat I do not a little rejoice, for if this thing had taken effect we should not have been able this year to invade the realm of France, so many should should (sic) have suffered on both sides." This morning the Duke rebuked the Colonel and other Allemen captains, commanding them to keep better order and apologise to Wallop, "which thing they did very humbly and penitently," The Spaniards are always ready to do Englishmen pleasure, and take their part in all frays with other nations.
This day Wallop persuaded the Duke and Great Master not to lie in camp, but rather to waste the French king's lands, seeing now that the Allemen repair to the French king. They promised on Friday next to begin—the Great Master meaning earnestly, "whatsoever the Duke doth mean."

93. The Privy Council to Suffolk, [Parr and Tunstall].
Have received their letter of the 28th inst. with the certificate of able men within Suffolk's lieutenancy ("and the view of the account of Mr. Vuedal" in No. 99). The King thanks them for their forwardness and, perceiving that the quantity of grain there ("in th'ands of Mr. Shelley" in No. 99) is so great that they have no room to bestow the grain brought lately by the 16 sail, commands them to stay that grain in the owner's hand and issue as much of the old provision ("of the worst of th'old store" in No. 99) into Scotland or Flanders or elsewhere as will leave room for it, which in any case shall be stayed to the King's use, that he may have enough for an army of 16,000 or 20,000 men. Which number they shall put ready upon any sudden warning, as sufficient to receive the holds on this side the Frith, "if the Governor shall fortune to offer them" or work any other exploit; the King not doubting but that Suffolk "hath good heart and courage" to adventure his person with it.
The Armestronges in prison at Carlisle are to be set free, if their friends in Scotland will deliver Forster, and the other three, and the Armestronges of Liddisdale will become the King's servants. Touching Exham and Langley they have misunderstood the Council's letter concerning the holds in Tynedale.

94. Sadler to Henry VIII.
Wrote that the Governor made an errand over the Frythe to speak with the Cardinal, who, he supposed, would "have humbled himself so much as to have met him on the way"; but, in proof that his fair behests are but practises, the Cardinal neither met him nor would speak with him when he came to St. Andrews, but desired that Sir George Douglas should come to him in the Castle. Sir John Campbel of Calder, Argyle's brother, was laid as pledge and Douglas went into the Castle, but could not persuade the Cardinal to wait upon the Governor. The Governor, thereupon, caused the Cardinal's treason to be proclaimed in St. Andrews, with pardon to all who had before aided him (which was well taken amongst the people), and returned hither, late yesternight, to gather his force and make like proclamations elsewhere against the Cardinal and all his complices. Found the Governor, this morning, so incensed against the Cardinal and his complices that there was no need to prick him forward, as Sadler, nevertheless, did, according to the letters of the 24th inst. from the King and the Council. Presently Angus, Cassils, Glencairn, Marishal, Maxwell, Gray, Somervail, the sheriff of Ayr and others depart to levy their force. Their adversaries have the advantage of being already gathered, and intending to be at Stirling on Friday next; for, upon the late communication between Douglas and the Cardinal, it was agreed, as Sadler wrote, that all assemblies should cease, but the Cardinal and his complices continued their musters and now are ready to come forward. Touching accomplishment of the treaties and delivery of the strongholds, the Governor says plainly that he cannot perform the treaties within the time limited, and that if he deliver the strongholds he must fly the realm, for his friends will forsake him. Sadler reminded him of his promises and advised him to write them, so that the King might see his good-will to the same. He answered that he must adhere to the King, for he had lost all other friends and was in great danger; wherefore he had determined to send the laird of Brunstoun to declare his state and make such offers as would show the King his good heart, trusting that the King would not suffer him to be overtrodden by those who would destroy all his friends here and bring the whole realm (already inclined thereto) to the cast of France. Advised him not to seek aid without making reciprocal offers, or the King (who had experimented the world's practises) would soon perceive it. He thanked Sadler for the advice, and promised, before despatching Brunstoun, to show Sadler his offers.
Has communed with Angus, Cassils, Glencairn, Maxwell and Douglas, and finds them all "very hot upon their enemies"; but they think the King must support the Governor with money "or else send a main army to conquest the realm" (which they would join), for the sending of a small number or delivery of the holds would cause all their countrymen to forsake them. Told them plainly that the King was too wise to lay out money without seeing some appearance of benefit to ensue, and reminded them of the benefits which the Governor and they had already received, to recompense which they had done utterly nothing, but rather had hindered the King's enterprises; praying them, now that the Governor intended to despatch a gentleman to the King, to "procure such expedition as might be thankful and acceptable to your Majesty." This they promised; and now they seem sorry that they ever counselled peace. They think the Governor will offer his son, but are not sure what offers shall be made. Without aid, they shall be in great danger, "for money they have none, and the Church beareth all they can make with the other party." The Governor says he will no more be deluded. There is yet no opportunity to commune with him of the King's "book of religion," nor to speak with the Cardinal. Edinburgh, 29 Aug. Signed.

96. Charles V. to Chapuys.
Received his letters of the 14th inst. (fn. 5) five days ago, and was greatly pleased to learn the continuance of the King's good will and the addition of the general clause against all the Emperor's enemies, in the publication of the war against the French. It is well that Chapuys did not mention the practice of the Cardinal of Mantua, of which he was advertised in case the French should mention it. As to the exploit done by the English in France, it is true that they have used all rigor, without even sparing the Emperor's subjects who have goods in France, wherein they should have had better regard. It remains that the King may be willing that they may continue in the war against France, because he is thereto bound by the treaty, since the French have occupied and detain Landreschies with a greater force than the treaty mentions, and Arschot and De Roeulx are in arms to recover it. In this Chapuys must use his accustomed dexterity, in accordance with what the Queen has passed in it with the captain (fn. 6) of the English, and what has passed between Arschot and De Roeulx and the said captain.
Where he wrote to Granvelle that the King would not have liked the enterprise against Cleves had it been spoken of when Chantonay was last in England, knows that it was for the best that he omitted it; but now that the Emperor is on the way it is requisite to inform the King that it is necessary to open the road between the Low Countries and Germany and to repress the insolence of the Duke and his people, who were boasting throughout Germany that the Emperor dared not pass that way and that they would join forces with France to destroy him; and to that end they had conspired the treason of Liege, which, with the necessity of victuals, has been no small reason for taking that road. Hopes to open it shortly and to advertise the King more expressly of what should be done further. Could not incline to peace with Cleves, as the electors on the Rhine and the duke of Saxony's men suggested, for the Duke insisted on retaining Guelders and Zutphen more insolently than before the Diet of Nuremberg, trusting to the support of France. Has done his duty to the subjects of Cleves and Juliers, as the enclosed copy will show.
As to the ships which should join those of England, the Queen will answer him, and will do therein what the weighty affairs there permit. Chapuys shall try to find out what enterprise the King has in hand and, according to the likelihood of executing it, do as he thinks best; and advertise the Emperor thereof, and about the French ships arrested in Scotland and the state of affairs in that quarter.
As to the Turkish army come to France, both Guasto and the ambassador at Genoa write that the French galleys have joined them, with some ships and galeasses, men of war, artillery and munition; and together they were gone to Villefranche, intending to winter there and occupy the town and castle of Nyce through the treason of some of Nyce, suborned to kill the prince of Piedmont, (fn. 7) the French king's near relative; to whom, if not to the father, he should have regard, since that young prince has never offended him. But the French king proves always more openly that he is the enemy of God [and] of Christendom, without faith or regard for kinship or amity and without shame; and, having joined forces with the Turk, he has compromised all that he and his men have said and written to the contrary. Hopes, however, that this will be his final confusion, as the King of England well says. Guasto and all the Emperor's ministers do all possible to succour Nyce, which is a new and great charge, and yet the Emperor writes to him to spare nothing and will himself go forward here, and make use of this late season, trusting that the King of England will respond on his side, who is the more bound thereto because, on pretext of the Emperor's alliance with him. The Pope excuses himself from aiding against the joint French and Turkish armies, pretending that the king of France demands his aid against England, and yet he will keep neutral, as will be seen by his last answer delivered in writing to the Emperor's ambassador resident in Rome, which is enclosed (not for Chapuys to show, but to tell the King the substance of it as shall seem fit).
As to the Turk's army in Hungary, sends the last news from the King his brother, to be declared to the King in proof that his said brother does what is possible and that the King's assistance has come at need and will be well employed. Lennich, 29 Aug. 1543.

97. Wotton to Henry VIII.
Being come hither on Tuesday, the Regent, on the morrow, sent Mons. de Corbaron, named before l'escuyer Bouton, to show her letter from the Emperor about the taking of Duren (copy enclosed). (fn. 8) He also showed a copy of the "sommacion" mentioned in the letter, to the effect that the Duke (having broken the peace of the Empire, rebelled against the Empire and allied himself with enemies both of it and of the Christian faith) had forfeited lands and body, and, although they of Duren had assisted his rebellion, the Emperor would maintain their liberties if they would yield themselves; but, if they refused, would treat them as rebels. The herald who carried this was told by the Colonel that neither he nor his men could read, and that he (the herald) "might go his ways well enough with his errand." It is said that many Italians and Spaniards were slain; for the town was well defended, and they were so hasty that they ran into the ditches before the battery ceased. Men here wonder at the cruelty of the Emperor, who not only commanded all men to be slain, but put to death some whom the Prince of Orenge's men had saved, and hanged the captain before the gates. The Queen marvels that Schepperus is not come. It is reported that they of Gulyke have brought the keys to the Emperor, and that the Prince of Orenge is gone towards Eyfell, in the higher part of Gulyk, to take Nydek and Munster Eyfell, while the Emperor comes towards Gulyk and Sittaert. Because of the sickness at Maestricht victuals and munitions are now sent by Luyke to the camp.
There is news from the camp in Hainault that 3 or 4 ensigns of Hennoyers appointed to do a feat, through the shameful running away of their horsemen, have been beaten; to the great rebuke of Mons. de Liques and others who led them.
At Antwerp, the chaplain of the English house showed Wotton that a prior of Chartreux of Scotland, who said that he had come through England with a brother of lord Reven, of Bowden in Anguisshe, told him that Englishmen reckoned to have Scotland at their pleasure, but would find themselves deceived; for they would never see the Cardinal in England as they expected, and Hamilton, the Douglasses, and Maxwell, traitors who favoured Englishmen, should lose their heads before Christmas next. The chaplain answered that, seeing what inconveniences were come to both realms by war, now when there seemed a towardness of peace, it would become him better to forward it than to use such words; but the prior named 2 or 3 of his next kinsmen who had been slain by Englishmen, and said that, "therefore he could never be satisfied till their death were avenged." On learning this Wotton required that the Prior who was at Lovain charter-house, minding to go into France, might be staid; and the President sent for him and gently enquired when and how he came from Scotland; who answered that, in coming by sea, he was taken by Englishmen and kept prisoner until the peace was made, and then let go, but the Chapter in Savoy to which he was going was ended. Not to arouse suspicion, the President asked him to report any news he might have from Scotland; and not to depart without speaking first with the Queen or him. The President has commanded them of the Chartreux house here to give notice if they see any token of the said Prior's departure. The gentleman he came with is here too, but has not used any such words as the Prior did. Lovain, 30 Aug. 1543.

100. The Privy Council to Sadler.
The King has seen his of the 26th to Suffolk and others of the Council in the North; and, considering how dangerously Stirling stands for the custody of the Queen, both because so near the Cardinal, Lynoux and the French party and because some of her keepers are of that faction, wishes that the Governor, in his return from beyond the water (or if he be already returned, at some other opportunity) should get possession of the castle, and either remove her to some nearer place or else remove the lords of the adverse party from her and put in friends.

101. Chapuys to the Queen Of Hungary.
His man has just returned from Court, who was sent to answer the Council's letters, of which she would receive the copy with his last. By his man's report, the Council recognise that they have inconsiderately written it; and they pray Chapuys to take it in good part, as evidence of their affection to the conservation and augmentation of the amity between the Emperor and their master, which requires frequent and confidential communication of all things, and that the principal object of the letter was to get Chapuys' help in it and the assembly of the Flemish ships with theirs, for some good enterprise.
Although the King has already written to her for 300 hacquebutiers and the assistance of the captains of St. Omer, Bourbourg and other neighbours, to prevent (with his men of war there and 1,000 whom he sends over with speed) the revictualling of Ardres, which the governor of Boulogne would effect with 6,000 men and 300 horse, he has again sent to Chapuys, very expressly, to write to her to gratify him in this, as far as possible, and in keeping him informed of occurrents, in return for the good will he shows to the Emperor's concerns. Lately, Sir John Gressam and Chapuys, hearing, by letters from the merchants to whom the letters of exchange for the 3,000l. were addressed, that the Queen would scarcely take the money in Antwerp, because of the great interest current there, the King (being advertised that the interest would be no less by delivering the money here for exchange, besides delaying the payment) licensed Gressam to send the 3,000l. thither in ready money. They wait only to know whether she will use the letters of exchange or not, and Chapuys is astonished that that advice is not yet come. London, 31 Aug. 1543.

102. Chapuys to Granvelle.
Takes the opportunity of this messenger to send copy of what he writes to the Queen, showing events since his last of the 27th. It remains only to pray Granvelle to get the Emperor to impart his news to this King, who having been heretofore "curieusement adverty et entretenu" by France, finds it strange that the Emperor does not do the same. "Il est prince qui veult estre any pen regallado, comme dit l'Espagnol, et par tel moien l'on s'en aydera comme l'on vouldra." London, 31 Aug. 1543.

103. Suffolk to [Parr].
Has sent his letter written yesternight late, with other two letters of Mr. Sadleyr's, to the Court with speed. Where he asks advice touching annoyance of the enemies and sparing of the King's friends, he should not suffer his deputy wardens to enter Scotland; but, upon knowledge from Sadleyr or Anguisshe what towns and surnames belong to their friends, depute conductors of the raids; and he may send part of his garrisons with them, foreseeing that they go strong. Darnton, 31 Aug. Signed.
P.S.—Such as he knows to be the Governor's enemies he may keep waking, according to Sadleyr's letters.

105. Henry VIII. to the Deputy And Council Of Ireland.
Answers the articles the Deputy sent by his secretary Parkar, as follows :—1. Money shall be sent as soon as possible. 2. Robt. St. Leiger is to have the custody of Dungarvon, provided he dwell there; and a book of the fees and profits which Ormond had is to be sent to the King. 3. Sir Osburn Ychingham is to have the custody of Ballatymore. 4. Hears that some of the Retinue are unruly for want of promptness of the law to punish them. Henceforth the Retinue shall be punished by martial law, not by ordinary process, 5. Sends a commission for sale of wards and letting of waste lands. 6. Has, at present, peace with the Scots; but he and the Emperor have jointly intimated war against the Frenchmen, and therefore all Frenchmen resorting thither must be treated as enemies. 7. The device for the conversion of Christes Church abbey to the maintenance of a standing Council and free school seems good. They must send a true extent of the revenues, and particular declaration how they would employ them. 8. Is content with the Deputy's suit to repair hither for two months in winter, and directs him to signify who is meet to supply his place. 9. Had given the benefice of Trymme to one of his Chapel, but, perceiving since that he had granted the Deputy the gift of all benefices there except bishoprics and deaneries, is content that one Agard, son of the Deputy's comptroller, shall enjoy it.
