510. Suffolk to Sir George Douglas.
Thanks for advertisement of occurrents by his letters of 19 Dec.
Much notes his delay in sending his book, subscribed by such of his friends
as desire assurance. At his request, has forborne when it had been
facile to destroy them; and yet it is unknown whether they are the
King's friends or enemies. Prays him to use more seriousness with
them, to prove whether they will join for the furtherance of the
treaties lately concluded with Scotland, and if so to cause them to
subscribe; which if they refuse, neither Suffolk nor Douglas can take
them for friends, and Suffolk will take such order for their chastisement as
will constrain them to offer what is now required of them, "like as the
Carres and Scottes did lately offer it full largely if it could have been
accepted." Unless the book is sent shortly, Suffolk cannot grant longer
assurance without exceeding his commission. Where Douglas refers to
Suffolk the appointment of a day of meeting for redress with his friends of
Tividale, forbears until Douglas certifies of the conformity of his said
friends of Tividale and the Marshe; for, unless they promise in writing to
join in setting forth the treaties, it is vain to appoint a meeting or treat
them as friends. Reminds him that they promised to use plainness with
each other; and in this he is the rather plain because it is said that the
King's enemies are "bolstered" betwixt them by means of this assurance.
Is certified that lord Home and his son, the Master of Home, are come
home from Edinburgh ill content with the Governor and Cardinal. Now
is, therefore, the time for the practice which Douglas said he had in hand
to win them to the King.

On receipt of his letters this night, at midnight, made enquiry for
Hilyerde and Riveley, and this morning finds that they departed out of
Tyne, southwards at 7 o'clock yesterday morning, upon the report of some
fishermen that they "heard a great peal of guns towards the south." It is
reckoned that they are now on the Norfolk coast. Will divide among the
garrisons, to every captain of 100 men 50l. and to every captain of 50 men
25l., being about 14 days' wages, and then will be almost destitute of
money. Begs Suffolk to take no displeasure that he and his retinue are
not considered at the same rate; which cannot be done till more treasure
comes. Newcastle upon Tyne, 21 Dec.

Creation, Sunday, 23 Dec. 35 Hen. VIII., at Hampton Court, of
Lord Parr as earl of Essex and Sir Wm. Parr as Baron Par of Horton.
When the King was come to his closet to hear high mass the above
named went to the pages' chamber which was strawed with rushes, and
after sacring of high mass when the King was come into the chamber of
presence under cloth of estate, the earl of Essex was led in by the marquis
of Dorset and earl of Derby, Viscount Lisle bearing the sword and Garter
the letters patent, which were read by Mr. Wriothesley. Usual ceremony
described briefly, (as in Part I., No. 803 (2)). The baron was afterwards
led in by lords Russell and St. John, Clarencieux (in default of a baron)
bearing the robe and Garter the letters patent, which were read by Mr.
Pagette. The earl and baron afterwards dined in the Council Chamber
and their styles (given) were proclaimed.

Enclose letters received this day from Sir George Douglas. As Sir
George writes that the herald who is now come out of Scotland is to
repair to the King "for safe-conduct for ambassadors to treat upon a new
peace," and gives his opinion; the writers give their opinion that, as the
herald is directed by private authority (most of the nobility not being privy
thereunto), he should not be admitted; for his admission would seem to
allow the Governor's authority, and the acceptation of such ambassadors
would discourage the King's friends. It is no time, now that the King's
friends are beginning to stir, for a herald addressed without their knowledge
to be admitted. Darneton, 27 Dec. Signed.
P.S.—In case the King's friends in Scotland shall proceed to fulfil their
promise, they should lack no reasonable aid; for which, nor for the
ordinary payment of the garrisons, here is no money. As Parliament
begins shortly, Suffolk desires to know whether the noblemen, knights, and
burgesses within his lieutenancy are to repair thither or not, that he may
give them notice.

521. Two Members of the Privy Council to Suffolk.
The King received his letters of the 26th, with those from Wharton
and Sir Wm. and Sir Ralph Eure, late this night; and, therefore, commanded
"us twain" to answer as follows :—
1. Touching the herald and the Patriarch's man, the King approves his
determination; albeit, if the herald bring answer to Henry Raye's credence,
"or any other convenient matter," he should be sent up and the Patriarch's
man stayed. 2. By Lindesay's credence, it appears that lord Maxwell has
found how he may kill as many in Edinburgh castle as he lists, and so
depart. Wharton must forthwith advise him to keep the castle, by the help
of such as work his enterprise, until he can "get a greater company of sure
folks unto him." 3. By Lindesay's credence it appears that Argile is
gone home, purposing to return to Court at New Year's tide, when
Dunlanerick and the sheriff of Ayr intend to break with him according to
their instructions. As they seem not contented with the division of the
money last sent into Scotland, and may not proceed earnestly, it might
avoid further expense if Suffolk sent some wise fellow direct to Argile with
like instructions, adding specially what aid or hurt he may receive out of
Ireland, as in the letters of the 13th. Suffolk shall send such a person now
at his repair to Court, and another with like instruction to Hunteley, with
this addition, that the King thinks his labour for those noblemen who are in
prison beseems his honor and prays him to continue in it; for all except
earl Rothes and Hen. Bennaves are the King's prisoners and cannot lawfully
be detained from entry when they shall be called for. By the answers the
King shall perceive how the games are like to go with these two earls; and
the persons sent should learn occurrences. Those sent to the Earls must
so handle the matter as in no wise to hinder the practice of the Sheriff
and Donlanerick, or give them cause of mistrust. And the instructions
which Mr. Sadleyr should have had and those which Henry Raye carried
shall therewith be declared to both earls.
P.S.—The King likes his device for keeping the prisoners lately taken
and calling in those who were taken before.

522. Suffolk, Tunstall and Sadler to the Council.
This night arrived Henry Raye, who, having been in Scotland with
commission and instructions to demand the entry of the prisoners, brought
the answer sent herewith. He "read his message upon the book" to the
earls of Arrayne, Murrey and Rothers, in presence of the Cardinal and
others of the Council, at Edinburgh; but Parliament was dissolved and
most of the great men departed. The Cardinal answered that he came too
late to declare it to the Three Estates, but he should have such answer as
the case required. Afterwards the Cardinal told him apart that no man
desired more than he did the peace and unity of the realms, and they
intended to send a herald for safe-conduct for ambassadors to treat thereupon,
for the last treaties took no effect, because passed by private persons who
sought their own profit. A sergeant of arms was appointed to see that
Raye spoke apart with no one in Edinburgh. With Raye are arrived the
Scottish herald and the Patriarch's man mentioned in last letters; whom
they have appointed Raye to keep as he was kept in Edinburgh. As the
herald told Raye proudly that he had nothing to say to Suffolk, but only
to the King, Suffolk will not receive him until the Council reports the King's
pleasure. He appears to have only a letter from Arran to the King for
safe-conduct for ambassadors to treat a new peace. The Patriarch's man
has a letter requiring safe-conduct for the Patriarch, who has "seen almost
all the world and, hearing so much honor and goodness of the King's
Majesty," desires much to see him.

523. Suffolk to Sir George Douglas.
Is glad to perceive, by his of 18 Dec., that his brother and the rest
of the King's friends, after assembling at Glasco on 3 Jan., will repair to
Edinburgh, meeting Douglas and his friends by the way. Albeit they are
of such wisdom as to need no advice, Suffolk thinks it good to give his
opinion, which is, that, at Edinburgh, they first make proclamations
setting forth the false practices of the Cardinal and his adherents to
interrupt the peace and marriage, which the pretended Governor and Three
Estates ratified, and which the Governor and others are now dishonorably
slipped from, by the subtle practices of the Cardinal, who, to please France,
cares not into what danger he brings the nobility of Scotland; and how
they go about to steal away the young Queen into France; and therefore
his brother and the rest are now assembled to see to the preservation of
their Sovereign and the observance of the late treaties with England,
adding thereto such matter as may best satisfy the common people.
Thereupon, they must proceed to deprive the Governor and choose four
regents (according to their former determination) with a substantial
Council, and also devise to put the Queen in surer custody, get the strongholds
into their hands, deliver the prisoners whom their enemies have put
in ward, and act like noble men to the annoyance of the adverse party; so
that, at least, the treaties may be observed and hostages laid for them.
In their just and honorable quarrel God will assist them; and they may
be sure that the King will not fail them so long as they show themselves
forward to perform their promises. Prays him to communicate this to the
rest at their assembly.
Will devise for the chastisement of Buckleugh, Cesforde and lord Home,
according to his letter. Where he writes that Fernyherst and others of
Tividale who will take his brother's part may be assured; they shall
receive no damage, if Douglas will send their names. Doubts not but
Douglas will take order with them to show themselves friends, and not (as
heretofore) annoy Englishmen going to do exploits in Scotland. Will do
the like for preservation of Douglas's friends in the Mershe, of whom he says
he will send a book; trusting that that book will be subscribed by them
to show their conformity to the treaties, as he has before written.

Memoranda for the Commissioners' conference with the Viceroy of

"First to remember that the King's Majesty hath declared unto us his
discourse, and sent us unto him to have conference with him of the same,
according to his desire. Item, to require him to repeat the same." Item,
to "allow" (approve) the Emperor's device for his own entry into France
by Champaigne, and "the distance between both armies" in marching.
Item, to show that, as the Emperor, for his commodity, has determined
to pass through Champaigne, so the King minds to pass the river of Som
at such place as he sees most commodious [altered from to show that that
way is dangerous for us, the country being already devastated and "the
passage that way lying by strait cawses"]. Item, to agree that each army
should act as it sees best, either besieging towns or devastating the
[country]. Item (fn. 2) , if he "stick upon the meeting of both armies at Paris,"
to know wherefore, and "to confute that point and to induce him rather
that both armies may be at liberty." Item to know the time for setting
forth of the armies, the numbers to be no less than the treaty appoints;
and remind him that the 2,000 horse and 2,000 foot which the Emperor
is bound to furnish to the King must be at Calais, Graveling or St. Omers
before the marching of the King's army. ["Item, for] the order of
sea matters according to the treaties."

Flanders, hoys and other transport vessels, lymoners, carriages and victuals
for the King's army at reasonable prices. By the treaty each prince must
send to sea as many ships as can carry 2,000 soldiers and mariners; and

Seas, and to keep together, the Flemish admiral being under the English,

Declaration (fn. 5) by the Imperial ambassadors Fernando de Gon[zaga,
duc de A]riano, prince de Melfete, viceroy of Sicily, and Eustace chapuys,
master of requests ordinary, authorised by the Emperor Charles V., that
they have treated and concluded with Norfolk, Russell, Hertford,
Winchester, Cheyney, Browne, Wriothesley and Paget, commissioners of
the King of England, as follows :—First, that each of the two Princes in
person or (if ill) by a lieutenant shall assail France, with separate armies,
before 20 June next at the latest. (2) The Emperor shall invade by
Champaigne, and the King by the passages of the river Somme, and both
shall march with diligence towards Paris, as strategy, victuals and the
enemy shall permit. (3) The Emperor's army shall be 35,000 foot and
7,000 horse, and the King's the same, provided that he can have the
Almains which he has decided to have (and for which, if he provides
money, the Emperor will furnish the men) and may also substitute horsemen
for footmen at his pleasure. And in the King's number shall be
counted the 2,000 horse and 2,000 foot which the Emperor is bound to
furnish him (and to pay for) by the treaty; which is again promised in
such sort that they shall be about Gravelinghes ready to join the King's
army. (4) The Regent shall in the Low Countries provide hoys and other
vessels requisite for the transportation of the army, and limoners and other
necessary carriages, as chariots, wagons, &c., and shall order the furniture of
victuals for the army at reasonable price. (5) As the treaty provides that
each prince shall equip ships furnished with 2,000 men, it is agreed that the
said ships be together in the Narrow Seas at the time of the said transportation,
both going and returning.

527. Chapuys to Charles V.
Has received by Don Fernande de Gonsaga the Emperor's letters of
30 Nov. and learnt his charge, upon the execution of which he himself
now writes, and will shortly recite the circumstances.
From what he can learn, affairs of Scotland do not prosper for this
King; for he who called himself Grand Governor has re-allied himself
with the Cardinal, as also have some others who held for the King, and
certain of the others have been made prisoners, among whom is lord
Machvell, one of the most important persons of Scotland, governor and
captain general of the frontiers, who was fraudulently taken by an abbot, (fn. 6)
brother of the former Governor, notwithstanding that in passing this way
in his (the abbot's) return from France he was well treated and presented,
and promised to do great things for the King. The earl of Lynus (of the
name, arms and house of the late king of Scotland and captain of a part of
the Scots in France) who, as Chapuys wrote before, for some discontent
with the King of France for not observing some promise, was about to take
this King's part (because of the good "traictement" offered him, together
with the marriage of the King's niece, daughter of the late Queen of
Scotland and Earl Douglast) has had an answer to his satisfaction, broken
off his practice with this King and turned against him once more.
Eight days ago was made a proclamation prohibiting the bringing of
French merchandise into the realm, even though it had been already
bought and carried into other countries; which is no sign that they will
wink at any passports. True, I think this prohibition made partly to
extract money for the licences that will be given. London, . . . . . .

528. Chapuys to the Queen of Hungary.
It would be too long to write the honorable reception made everywhere
to the Viceroy of Sicily—and superfluous, since she will shortly be
advertised of it by himself. As to his charge, after several disputes and altercations,
it has been concluded and capitulated that this King shall invade France
in person by way of Picardy with 35,000 foot and 7,000 horse; but they could
not be got to bind themselves that the said army should be all in France before
20 June, not that they did not wish to hasten the enterprise, but for the
impossibility, especially because of forage; and also, to avoid a rupture, it was
necessary to make one concession (accorder ung cas), riz., that, during the
transport of their army, the Emperor's ships, with the number capitulated in the
treaty, should join the King's ships in the Narrow Seas for its surety. Also the
King has agreed to contribute 20,000 ducats for the enterprise on the side of
Piedmont, conditionally, however, on the sending hither of 1,000 Spanish
arquebusiers for three months to guard the frontiers of Scotland, 600 of whom
should be paid by the Emperor. The practice for gaining the Swiss was laid
before them, but they account it absolutely nothing.
