427. Sadler to Henry VIII.
Has received advertisements from Brunstone, who, "except there be no truth in Scottishmen," undoubtedly minds to do the King service. Sends them in cipher, as Brunstone required, to show how the Governor and Cardinal now triumph against the King's friends. Temptallon, 26 Nov. Signed.

428. Sadler to Suffolk and Tunstall.
Lately wrote that the Governor and Cardinal, intending to do some exploit on Angus's friends in the North, had turned Westwards to Stirling because "they found not their purpose very facible." But the truth is that they indeed went to St. Johnstons and Dundee and have taken the earl of Rothers, lord Gray, who is the King's prisoner, and Mr. Henry Bannaves, lately ambassador; as appears by the copy of Brunston's news now enclosed to the King. Thus the Governor and Cardinal triumph, and "take their time when it serveth"; but the Cardinal so doubts the Governor's inconstancy that he keeps his eldest son in St. Andrews castle for a pledge. Cannot tell what purpose Angus, Cassells, Glencarne and Sir George Douglas have, but they sit still and do nothing, to the perplexity of their friends and embolding of their adversaries. Thinks it long since he has had letters from England. Temptallon, 26 Nov. Signed.

429. Arran to Angus.
Has received his writings by Rothesay herald, to the effect that he believed Arran would not be miscontent that Sir Ralph Sadlier was entreated in Temptallon, and now, seeing the contrary, desires charge subscribed by all the lords to put him forth. Had Sadlier used himself like an ambassador, Arran would not have been miscontent, but he daily practices to corrupt faithful subjects to the opinion of England in this time of war; and therefore Arran charged him to depart and Angus to "devoyd" his house of him. Finds it strange that, by desiring charge from all the lords, he thinks Arran's authority "insufficient to discharge ane Inglisman of yis countrey in tyme of weir"; and has sent Rothisay again to charge him in the Queen's name and Arran's to cause Sadlier to pass to his own country.

Anthinory, dwelling at Florence and having houses at Lyons, Antwerp and elsewhere, Simon Pecori, Florentine, dwelling at Antwerp, and Jehan Sinonnet (sic), dwelling at Meldibourg in Zealand, and their company, to import certain quantities of herring, etc., and to export certain quantities of salt, etc., from and to foreign countries, as well of enemies as of friends, under specified conditions. Dated at La Fere sur Oize, 14 Nov. 1543.
(2.) Consent by Charles de Moy, chlr., seigneur de la Milleraye, gentleman of the King's chamber, captain of fifty lances de ses ordonnances, vice admiral of France and lieutenant general of Normandy in the absence of the Dauphin, to the full execution of the above licence. Dated 23 Nov. 1543.

Has received by the Sieur d'Arbays the Emperor's letters of the 8th inst. with news of the shameful flight of the French King, and, afterwards, those of the 19th containing the communications with the duke of Lorraine.

432. Chapuys to the Queen Of Hungary.
Received her letters of the 8th containing news of the shameful flight of the French, which were well taken by this King, as she will learn from the Sieur d'Harbais. As to the offer of the ships in her letter of the 9th, Harbais will tell what the King said; and the Council, especially the Admiral, talked so to Chapuys' man, but, having seen the letter, they have made no other instance or claim. There will be great difficulty in getting the English to condescend to the safeconducts for traffic in France, although they have no earthly reason to make difficulty therein, especially seeing their own claim to do it at pleasure, as appears by the Admiral's letter to Chapuys (herewith). Will repeat his charge and advertise her of the answer. London, 27 Nov. 1543.

433. Suffolk and Tunstall to the Council.
Enclose letters in cipher from Sadler to the King, from Brunston to Sadler and from Sadler to the writers, with the unciphering of them; also copy of a letter which Suffolk has written to Angus (on receipt of Sir George Douglas's letters this morning reporting the taking of Rothers, Graye and Henry Bennaves), asking what he and his friends intend to do. Where Suffolk wrote to Douglas to see that the King's money was not spent in vain, and Douglas answered that he thought none should be delivered until Suffolk knew to whom and for what purpose, Suffolk has ordered Shelley to stay the 1,500l., entertaining such as come for it until he hears further. Desires to know the King's pleasure in this. Where Douglas demands a greater aid than 1,200 men, if need be, Suffolk has written to ask what aid he desires. Unless some deadly feud is raised, a small number of Englishmen should not venture too far. Of the 4,000l. now arrived, sent by Mr. Stanhop, after paying the aid of 1,500l. and this month's wages of the garrisons, there remains not above 1,200l. Suffolk has therefore stayed for certain days the receivers' receipts in these north parts, and desires to know whether the King will have any of it stayed here to save carriage. Darnton, 27 Nov.

434. Suffolk and Tunstall to the Council.
Send herewith a letter of Sir George Douglas telling of great offers made to win Angus to the French party. Suffolk has written both to him and Angus reminding them of their danger if seduced to yield to their enemies, and touching upon all the points which the King wished bruited in Scotland, viz., the league concluded between the King and the Emperor to assail the French king next year, how he will not be able to help himself, much less aid Scotland, how the rents of two years were last year spent beforehand whereby no money or pensions are likely to come to Scotland, how the Scots will lose their traffic in Flanders since the Emperor will take them for enemies, how the King, thank God ! shall have treasure both for himself and his friends, and what extreme danger Scotland has oft sustained by trusting France. Enclose letters from Wharton, from Sir Wm. Eure and from Sir Wm. Eure and the Commissioners. Perceive by the King's letter to Brunston that "neither he nor no man else shall endeavour himself" to advance the King's godly purpose for the preservation of his pronepte and the weal of both realms, but shall benefit himself thereby. If any Scottishmen propose matter tending to the marriage and peace (which seems to be the most that the lords of Scotland brought in by the King's friends will agree to), that is, offer to join the King's friends for that end, shall they be accepted? Verily, many more would have joined the King's friends had they thought that the King demanded no further. Darnton, 27 Nov. Signed.
P.S.—Enclose also letters from Sir George Douglas, from Sir Wm. Eure, and from the Governor to Angus for the avoiding of Mr. Sadleyr; also copy of the letter of credence that lord Somervell should have brought, the original of which is in the Governor and Cardinal's hands. These letters show the troublous state of Scotland.

435. The Patriarch, Marco Grimani, to Card. Farnese.
His being here after this assembly will be no honor to the Pope nor service to the French king, now that the alliance with France is confirmed, the Queen and Cardinal being now at liberty and governing all at the Cardinal's pleasure, who is of prudence and worth, without anyone's aid or counsel, to govern a greater realm than this. To tell the truth, I cannot stay here for lack of money; and if I had depended upon the faculties things would have gone wrong (e si fusse stato dessignato sopra le faculta si harebbe preso errore) for it is now nearly two months since I arrived in Scotland and despatch has not been made for 200 scudi; and, because these despatches were of friends and relatives of the Cardinal, and of certain poor persons, the whole has been given with my loss of 8 or 10 scudi, which I have agreed to pay the scribe (abbreviatore) for his reward. For these causes, and for another which he cannot write, he is resolved to leave at the first opportunity of passing into France, with the licence of the Queen, Cardinal and Governor; and he is sure that Farnese will approve his departure. Has written of it into France and sends a servant with the letters, for surety and to see if Roberto di Rossi has received any money for him from Rome. Of the 1,600 which he had from Card. de Tournon when he left Paris, has now but 80, and when he is in Edinburgh he will have to sell some silver plate which he brought with him. Begs that he may find money with Roberto de Rossi at Paris to bring him back to Italy. There being no armada for his safe passage, and to avoid risk of passage now in mid-winter, has determined to pass through England, and rather commit himself to the faith of that King than to the discretion of the sea, or to be taken by Englishmen. Came here for the service of the Queen, Cardinal and realm; and, finding them free and well, he will, after this assembly, speak with her Majesty, the Cardinal, and the Governor, and, if they do not wish his services in peace or war, he will demand their licence to depart.
In his own hand.—The copy of his instruction which should be found there will show the cause of his coming into Scotland and "che no hoperandomi in alcuna cosa di la comisione sto qui con travalgio, pero hexequiro quanto ho dito." Signed : M. Patr'cha Legato.
P.S. (in his clerk's hand).—Was to have gone to Stirling to accompany the Queen and Cardinal to the assembly; but the Cardinal has written to him to go the shortest way to Edinburgh. The Cardinal wrote further that they send these his men into France to demand aid of the French king, and does not mention sending to Rome to his Holiness. The weather is disagreeable (disconci). The ship may not be able to leave so soon; and I may have opportunity to write something of the assembly and other things. St. Andrews, 27 Nov. 1543.

Anthinori and Company and Jehan Simoneti, Florentine merchants, to export to certain parts of France certain herring, &c., dated Mons, 1 Nov. 1543; and (2) his, i.e. the Admiral's, own consent to the said safeconduct, dated at his castle of Sandenbourg at La Vere, 26 Nov. 1543.

437. William Woodhouse to Lisle.
Wrote on the 20th inst., from Portysmouth, what tackle he had at Hampton. Went that day to the seas, quarter seas over towards France; where they met with such wind that their sails were like to be blown away and they had much ado to recover Wyght. "Syns that tyme the wynde hathe contynued by the Southest [and So]uthe [Weste, with]. . . . . . . stor[me]s of hayle, thonder, fluwes of lytenynge, the oldest maryner in the navye hathe never s[een] the lyke." Strangers and others have put into Hampton Waters very much spoiled; and also divers English ships of war, venturers, have been driven from the Islands and spoiled. The fle[et] of war, which be 10 sails, have only spoiled their tackle and are ready to go home. "Bucke came hyth[er to] Wyght the xxiiijte day of this moneth lyke to abe. . . . . . . v . . . . . . . . wre . . . . d lost an [an]kre and ij cables . . . . . . . . boote and a small boat of Rye brought v ankers . . . . . . cables, all that were left saving one anker wt ij c[ables] of the Swallowes whiche were not at that tyme. . . . . . . wt the other, but syns that tyme a bote of Rye ha[the] wayed the said ank[e]r and cables.

Boats of Rye have been over to the French coast and saw no fishermen abroad, and say that it was impossible to fish this 18 days. The wind is now North-west "so terrible if we shul[d] put wt the cost it were dethe." With daily waiting for wind "our victuals be near hand spent; and their fishing shall last till upon Christmas there on that coast." Never abode a more sorrowful time. Sends the mayor of Rye's letter for charges of saving of the tackle, and has written to him to send a bill to Lisle. Saynt Ellyns rode in Wyght, 28 Nov. Signed : Wyll'm Wood[house].

438. Wallop to Paget.
Thanks for declaration of his letters to the King, which he perceives by a letter from the Council. Is comforted to know that the King accepts his proceedings in this late journey; for he desires, in this world, nothing more than to serve the King, and no other reward "but only a merry look of his Highness when his pleasure shall be that I may repair unto his presence." Since departing from the Emperor at Cambray, has received letters from Arschot and the Great Master, desiring him to present their commendations to the King. As he cannot do this, sends the letters and begs Paget to do it; "and to show the letters it is not needful." Prays him to send Wallop's hearty commendations to Mr. Wriothesley who, he hears, is amended. The bearer, Mr. Arnold, "is as honest a gentleman as any was this year in our camp," and was well horsed and armed, and handled himself well. Calais, 28 Nov. Signed.

Has just received his letter of 10 Oct. Events in Flanders since Chapuys wrote last, especially the shameful flight of the King of France, will be told by bearer, Don Alonso Manrique. The Duke of Lorraine's visit to the Emperor, who wrote of it to Chapuys on the 19th inst. The Emperor has sent hither the Sen˜or Darbaes with news of the flight of the French, which has inflamed this King towards next year's enterprise; and he has sent a gentleman of his Chamber to the Emperor to know when, how and with what numbers the descent should be made. In Scotland the Earl of Lude (fn. 1) to whom the French sent money and munitions had half revolted (se era medio algado) against the French, and practises a marriage with this King's niece, daughter of the late Queen of Scotland and the Earl of Angis.

440. Sadler to Suffolk.
Yesternight received a letter from Berwick from his servant Wm. Brage, whom he lately sent to Suffolk for money, showing that Suffolk told him to say that it is the King's pleasure that Sadler should forthwith repair to Angus and the King's friends. Protests his wish to do service, but cannot remain with all the King's friends, for they are not together; nor could he venture to go towards them with any conduct Angus would appoint. Could not lie nearer to them than 16 or 20 miles, and that in an open town among such malicious people that he had liever be among the Turks; for Angus's house is in such ruin that there is scant one chamber for himself and his wife, and Casselles and Glencarne (being 20 miles apart and 30 from Angus) have no lodging to spare. The "lords' houses in this miserable and beggarly country be not after such sort as in other countries." If Angus and the rest, as is expected shortly, repair to Edinburgh or Leith at the Parliament, Sadler will be nearer them at Temptallon. Could ride up and down with them like a man of war, but it would be dangerous and would make their friends desert them. Many of their friends slip from them because they are noted good Englishmen, and Angus is hated because of Sadler's lying at Temptallon; and, apparently, they will have enough ado to keep out of danger of their enemies, who daily catch up some of them. Suffolk may advertise this to Court to be considered. Temptallon, 29 Nov.
P.S. (fn. 2) —Oliver St. Cler lies at a little house two miles hence, with 60 horsemen, to catch up Sadler or his servants if they stray far from this castle, and thereby be better able to redeem his pledge and pay his ransom to the King. Angus's kinsmen and servants dwelling hereabouts have come purposely to warn Sadler of this.

441. Sadler to Tunstall.
Received his letters, and has indeed heard the news of the French king's running away by night, wherein he used good policy to take the bells from his mulettes. But a Scottish ship has just arrived at Legh out of Flanders, with news that, within these 14 or 15 days, "there hath been a field stricken betwixt the Emperor and French king, which the French king hath won," and has slain 3,000 of the Emperor's men and 240 or 260 Englishmen; whereat is great rejoicing here, and posts despatched from Edinburgh, yesterday, to the old Queen with the news. Begs him to show this to the lord Lieutenant, who may write to Court for the certainty thereof. If it be untrue, the truth should be spread in this country. Temptallon, 29 Nov.

442. The Privy Council to Suffolk [and Tunstall].
Have declared their "lordships'" letters of 23 and 25 Nov., and the other letters therewith, to the King, who approves their proceedings with Sir George Douglas. By Dunlanrike's letter to Wharton it appears that Angus and the King's friends still practise "after their old fashion, and go not roundly to work" as the King expected after the apprehension of their friends and losing of their holds and Angus's letter to Sadler that he would bring 1,000 men to take Edinburgh on Monday was sevennight. Suffolk shall write to Angus (not mentioning Dunlanrik's letter) that the King marvels he did not take Edinburgh as he appointed, and that he and the rest, by their slackness, must make the French King think his money well employed, and might cause the King to withdraw his aid, were it not for love to them and trust in their faithful proceedings as occasion serves. The King warns them, as he has often done heretofore, to treat with the sword in their hand; so that if reason fails they may use force. The King would be glad to see some effect of their long treaties, and to know certainly what these treaties have been; for, considering that the French party daily advertise the French king of their proceedings, at no small risk of their messengers falling into the laps of the English navy, the King marvels that Angus and others do not sometimes advertise him of their doings. Angus wrote a short letter to Sadler "that he forbare to take Edinburgh as he was determined"; but why, or what has been done at the assemblies at Douglas, "or what they mind to do, they have not advertised his Majesty of one jot." Suffolk is to prick Angus forward; for he needs it, as appears by his slack doings, and by the letter of his chaplain to "me the bishop of Winchester." The King approves of the restraint of the money in the treasurers' hands. Sadler's going to Edinburgh would be dangerous and therefore he should remain still at Tyntallon. Wrote the King's pleasure from Ampthill, on the 22nd, for the sending home of the master of Somervile and laird of Mowe. In their letter of the 27th they desire to know whether to accept any Scottishman who will join the King's friends to have the marriage and peace go forward. If any will join to have these go forward, with the hostages for the same, and will leave the French party and work for the delivery of the King's friends who are in ward, the offer shall be accepted.

443. Suffolk and Tunstall to the Council.
Here are just arrived, from Berwick, Sir Thos. Hylton and Geo. Bowes, commissioners appointed by Suffolk to commune with Sir George Douglas for attemptates done between the King's subjects and Sir George's friends. After eight days' conferring, they could bring Sir George to no other purpose than to have restitution made to all his friends of the Marche and appoint no restitution to be made by his friends of Tyvedall. Evidently, those he calls his friends would use all things to their own advantage. Sir George said that, if he now required them to answer in writing what they would do, they would all go from him; and his own answer "is like to stand to little effect, as it did before." Some of them declare that they never desired him to make such assurance for them, and that they would never strike a Scot if an Englishman stood by, and would leave him if he took any part with England. Sir George declared that all Scots were more French than English, being "pampered with money, pensions and lands of the French, the Cardinal and the Governor," which "it were hard to counterweigh" with fair words. Sir George required the assurance to continue eight days, in order to consult his friends; and Suffolk has thereupon sent word to him that unless his friends, within these 8 days, give in their bonds to make redress and keep the assurance it shall last no longer.
Suffolk has advanced Sir George 100l.; and the enclosed letter from him shows that he requires more. To give him no occasion to slip away from the King, Suffolk has thereupon advanced him 100l. more; but would be loth to disburse further, seeing that the commissioners and the captain of Berwick report that Angus will go in to the Governor and Cardinal's party, to have his friends out of prison, and Sir George himself has declared that the Cardinal has offered to meet him "with four with him." A priest who was the Cardinal's secretary is now Sir George's secretary. There is much speaking of Angus and Douglas which we "can hardly believe." We pray God all be well. But they have left the King's money at Berwick these eight days without sending; which makes us think they "have dined some other way," for "they were hungry before." Sir George told the commissioners that a herald from the Governor had commanded Angus to send Mr. Sadler to Edinburgh, if he had any commission, or, if he had none, "to avoid him"; and Sir George thought that if Sadler did not depart he would be taken as good prize. As Sir George offered to convey Sadler, and thought that hereafter he could not do so, they have written desiring him to see Sadler conveyed into England. Darnton, 30 Nov. Signed.

444. Suffolk to Sir George Douglas.
Perceives by his letter dated Coldingham, 28 Nov., that he desires part of the money to wage men. Has written to Mr. Shelley to advance him 100l., besides the 100l. already delivered him by Shelley to distribute among the men of the lairds of Blacketour and Este Nesbet, and prays him to be content with this until Suffolk hears from his brother and the rest of the King's friends what they intend and how they will distribute the residue. Perceives by report of Sir Thomas Hilton and Geo. Bowes, and by a bill signed by them and Douglas, that the assurance granted by my lord Warden shall stand during Suffolk's pleasure; while another bill, from Douglas alone, declares that the Borders are "to be certified eight days before the giving up of the same on either party." As Douglas's friends of Tevidale have broken their assurance by making spoils, and neither they nor those of the Marshe show how they will use the King's subjects, Suffolk cannot undertake to continue the assurance; for the King would be content with a reciprocal bond, but to enter a bond whereby his enemies should have advantage of his subjects his princely stomach cannot brook. Dare not continue the assurance longer than eight days from the date of this, and, unless, within these eight days, his friends of Tevidale bind themselves to make redress, and both they and those of the Marshe declare in writing, subscribed by Douglas and them, what they will do for the said assurance, it shall expire after these eight days. Understands from the commissioners that Angus has received the Governor's summons to avoid Mr. Sadler out of Temptallon, and that Douglas can convey him into England safe; which, hereafter he may not be able to do. Prays him to convey Sadler into England as soon as he can. Darnton, 30 Nov.
