1385. [S. Vaughan] to Cromwell.
Two days ago I received certain letters from my wife, by which I
learn that the King is minded to send me to some other place than this
about his affairs. I am only slenderly prepared. I have spent more money
than I have received, and have lost my horse besides ; and winter is coming
on, which may break my body, that is not of the strongest. If this be,
however, the King's wish, let no heavier burden be charged upon me
than I am able to bear. Let my instructions be from you in the same
tongue that I should do them, that there may be no doubts ; and let me not
need money. If I am to go into Dutchland again, I shall be glad if
Shurland is sent me. My charges far surmount my pension. Hitherto I
have only had 20l., and am likely to spend the poor savings of my wife.
Those who serve least, I see, are often best rewarded. You say the King
will regard me ; but princes' minds are changeable. The posts complain you
do not pay the letters, and therefore I expect few letters will be carried from
here to you. I send you a copy of verses which the lewd and malicious
students of Louvain prick up upon doors and corners. You can show them,
if you please, to the King and Queen. I cannot keep silence on this matter.
"You have lately holpen an earthly beast, a mole, and an enemy to all godly
learning, into the office of his damnation,—a Papist, an idolater, and a fleshly
priest unto a bishop of Chester. Remember God in all your facts. You
cannot undo that you have done." Such become tyrants, and destroy the
realm. Who knows more of the bishops' iniquity than you,—their tyranny,
their falsehood? Be you sorry for it? I am more sorry for this deed than
anything you have ever done. Hopes this remonstrance will not interrupt
their friendship. "From the town mentioned in my last letters," 1 Nov.

1386. The Bailly Of Troyes to Francis I.
Hears today from the King that his ambassadors have written that the
Pope has told Francis he cannot attend to his cause now, as the process is at
Rome, and the King thinks he will not have a good despatch. He has heard
also that the Pope has done nothing in his affair ; and he complains of
Francis having concluded the marriage of the duke of Orleans and the Pope's
niece, reminding the Bailly of what had been said about it at Calais.
Has no instructions for replying. Said that whatever Francis did with
the Pope, it would not diminish his affection for Henry ; that he had promised
the Pope for a long time to make this marriage, and he knew Henry
would not wish him to break his word, and that his desire of having an
alliance in Italy was not without good reason. Said all he could to prevent
the King from being annoyed. He takes the matter very much to heart,
and thinks that Francis is being gained over to the side of the Pope against
him. Greenwich, 2 Nov. 1533.

1392. Chapuys to Charles V.
The King, not satisfied with having taken away the name and title of
Princess, has just given out that, in order to subdue the spirit of the Princess,
he will deprive her of all her people, because they put notions into her head, and
stop her from obeying him, and that she should come and live as lady's maid
(demoiselle) with this new bastard ; at which she and the Queen are mightily
troubled, and ask me for my advice, and to use my influence with Cromwell
for his interference. I sent the Princess a protest, stating that she would
not tacitly or expressly do anything which was prejudicial to her ; and I
suggested many fair and gracious remonstrances that she might employ ; and
in case there was no remedy, that she must take patience for the little time
that the case had to last, and that she should say before the King's messenger
that it was so, and that it was not to be drawn to her prejudice.
These words she was to repeat daily before her confidant.
As I and Cromwell could not meet in consequence of his numerous occupations,
and in order to avoid suspicion, I sent word to say that I was
astonished that the King had taken so savage and so strange a determination,
and one of such ill consequence ; that I was greatly displeased at it, as well
on account of the indignity of the proceeding, as for the inconvenience that
might arise, because I had written to you on his promise that the Queen and
Princess would be well treated ; and this was done out of regard for relationship ;
that one ought not to treat even an enemy as badly as possible, much
less to make such "improperez" tending to create hatred of your Majesty ;
that they should remember that friends might become enemies, and enemies
friends. He sent me word that I must excuse him that he did not reply
particularly what he knew of this affair, as it was a secret of the Council, and
therefore he did not dare to speak of it without consent of the King ; but in
general he might have shown me that the King would do nothing but what
was reasonable. As to my remark about friends and enemies, he marked
well to whom the amphibology applied,—wishing to insinuate that he had
wished that the King his master, who put so much confidence in the king of
France, would always keep this maxim before his eyes,—stating that every one
in the Council desired the continuance of your friendship ; that he had used
his endeavours for the good treatment of the Queen and the Princess as far
as he could, and would do so, and would advertise the King of my message,
and send me the answer ;—which he has not yet done, in consequence of his
It is rumored here that the Pope has suspended the execution of the
executorials passed in favor of the Queen, for the space of two months ; at
which she is displeased, thinking he will favor the King. I have sent word
to Cromwell that I have heard that the King had procured the said suspension,
and wished to know if it were so, in order to write into Flanders, that execution
of them might be stayed for the time. He would neither affirm nor deny
it ; and as for the execution, you and the queen of Hungary knew very well
what you had to do.
A man has come from Frederic Count Palatine for certain dogs and horses
which the King has offered to provide him. The King has sent to the duke
of Bavaria, now at Antwerp. I do not know whether there is anything
beyond this. The Palatine's servant is to leave for Paris in three days,—only,
as he affirms, to visit his son, who is studying there.
A courier arrived from Marseilles eight days ago, who must have brought
the King no very agreeable news, for I am informed by those who were
present that as soon as he began to read he changed colour, and crushed up
one of the letters in his hand for spite, saying he was betrayed, and that
neither the French king nor he was such as he thought ; and of the Pope he
said a thousand ill things. I cannot learn what the news were, unless it
were of the report at Marseilles that the Pope and the king of France were
to meet your Majesty. Three days since arrived other news from Marseilles,
which they have published everywhere, that the Pope had granted to this
King all he had asked. Nevertheless, as far as one can see, the said two
couriers have brought nothing very agreeable to the King, who yesterday
re-dispatched one of them to Marseilles with ready money, and, as I am told,
powers to the English ambassadors to offer 400,000 cr. ;—I know not whether
to be applied for the profit of the Pope and Cardinals, or to be employed
against the Turk. So one of the Lady's own demoiselles has said, who also
affirms the King to be so obstinate in his intention that he said several times
he would sooner go begging from door to door than ever abandon this Lady.

I beg you to have pity on this poor man. He has nothing to support

4d. a day by one of the King's guard, a rich man, who can spend 10l. a year
besides his wages, as may appear by the record in the Star Chamber. He
has sold all that he has, and can borrow no more, and has even pawned his
bed. If ye be not good master to the country where I dwell, I cannot tell
how poor men shall live in quiet, for within these two years more unthrifty
deeds have been done in the hundred of Tanredge than have been done in the

1403. Count Of Cifuentes to Charles V.
Wrote on the 24th ult., and has since received the Emperor's letters
of the same day.
During a conversation with the Pope about the innovations attempted by
the French in Italy, his Holiness said God had taken charge of his affairs ;
for the French king, being desirous of settling the business of England, in
which he said that he was doing much service to the Holy See, found that
the English ambassador here had no power. On which Francis said to him,
"How! when I am negotiating his business, and my desire to find some
method of settling the king of England's cause was one reason of my
marrying my son with the Pope's niece, and holding this interview for the
good alike of England and of Christendom?" And as the Ambassador had
no power, it seemed as if he was playing a trick (burlava), and he considered
him as a spy. He thus gave the Pope to understand that, having endeavoured
to settle the English cause in order to promote obedience to the Holy See,
the Pope ought to make certain concessions to him. But as no settlement
with England was likely, the Pope considered that he was free from any
stipulation the French king could demand of him in this respect, concluding
that he would use diligence to perform all that he had agreed with the
Emperor, and that nothing should be done contrary to the treaty of Cambray.
However, he did not consider it a good sign that the French king
and the English ambassadors who came here had sent to England for the
said power, which was expected every day. Having seen the Emperor's reply
to Dominico Centurion, the viscount Juan Enart (Hannart) and Cifuentes spoke
in accordance with what the Emperor writes. The Pope seems doubtful
whether it is right (si habra lugar) to wait for the Queen's reply, because
he considers it of great importance that the king of England should obey
the sentence and the Holy See, and he will do what he intimated to the
Emperor by Dominico Centurion, lest anything be done here to disturb
it (por mas instantia que aqui se le hiziesse para estorvarlo) until he
knows the Queen's wishes. His Holiness said also that the French king
had told him the Emperor was agreed with the king of England, being
somewhat afraid of him. Said he knew of nothing of the kind, and if
there had been any agreement the Emperor would have let the Pope know.
Would not give his Holiness any further satisfaction, as it seemed well
for the French king to have these suspicions.
Subsequently the Pope sent Juan Luys de Aragonia to tell him that great
instance had been made on the part of the French king for the prorogation
for five or six months of the term granted to the king of England
at Pisa, during which some agreement might be made to settle the case.
He saw that it was not reasonable to grant such a long term for the King
to restore the Queen and leave Anna, as it appears he gave the French
king to understand. He intended, however, to grant another month, and
asked Cifuentes not to oppose it, as he should do it for the Queen's sake.
Requested his Holiness on several accounts not to grant it. He replied
that the request to grant five or six months was so urgent that he could
not refuse entirely, especially as he was in France. It was necessary for
him to comply till he had left the country, but then he promised to grant
nothing (porque fuera que fuesse me prometio de no dar ninguno) without
the Count's consent. Did not wish him to say more.
Believes that on the eve of All Saints the Pope called a congregation of
Cardinals in his chamber, and told them of the term of six or seven months,
which was asked for on the ground that the French king was going to
have an interview with the king of England in March, and try to settle
this business. He thought this prorogation would be injurious to the Queen,
but that it would be well to prorogue for one month, and wait for the
courier from England. The cardinals of Sena and Sta. Cruz opposed, but
it was finally agreed to grant the month. He has promised to grant no longer
Said to him that the interview between the French and English kings
was very inconvenient, as it would be made a plea for further delays, and
would also cause great jealousy in Christendom. To this he replied that he
would not consent to further delay, and that the Kings would not meet.

1404. The Bailly Of Troyes to [Montmorency], the Grand
Has received no letter from the King or the Grand Master since
writing six days ago. Is surprised, as the king of England says that his
ambassadors write that the King has sent something to be communicated to
him. The conversation mentioned in his last letter took place while walking
with the King from his chamber to his chapel. He tried to make out
that the Bailly's instructions were to the effect that the King would never
perform the marriage of the duke of Orleans unless the Pope would decide
Henry's affair as he wished. Would not acknowledge that he had ever heard
of such a thing, and offered to show him the instructions. He then said that
although the Bailly had never mentioned it, Francis had promised it at
Calais, both to him and the Queen. As he knelt before the altar he said that
if this marriage took place without the Pope doing anything for him, he
would not have great cause to esteem his friendship with Francis. While
he was at mass, went to the duke of Norfolk's chamber to despatch the
letters to Francis and Montmorency, as the courier was waiting for them.
Was unable to see the King again after mass, but spoke fully on the subject
to the Duke. Said that Henry pressed Francis wonderfully, though he
was taking more trouble in this matter than he did for the deliverance of
himself or his children ; and that if he knew that his trouble and expence
were so ill requited by the King, he would be much vexed. Begged the
Duke and the principal members of the Council to show this to the King,
and to tell him that it is easy to trouble a friend by importunity. Said that
if they were good advisers of their King, they would wish Francis to be
friendly with the Pope ; for if he declares himself his enemy as the king of
England wishes him to do, without reason, his Holiness would entirely give
himself over to the Emperor.
Norfolk and others of the Council agree with this. He says the King is
so troubled in his brain about this matter that he does not trust any one alive ;
and though he himself is one of the chief persons in whom he trusts, both the
King and the Queen often suspect him. Believes there are many persons
here, even among the principal people, who would be very sorry if the Pope
had given sentence against the late Queen, for this one and all her family
are little beloved.
Hears that Castillon is at sea. Hopes to present him to the King on
Sunday, and to take leave. Will speak to the King about what he has
mentioned already, as the Council would not dare to speak as boldly as he

1409. Count Of Cifuentes to Charles V.
Wrote on the 7th.
The Pope told him that a companion of the excusator has come by post,
and presented him a writing from the king of England, to the effect that the
sentence lately given was unjust, as he was now legally married, and he
appealed to a future Council held in some impartial place. At this time the
French king came in ; and when the Ambassadors were gone, the Pope told
him the message they had brought, and urged him to abandon the King, who
was an enemy to the Church and himself. He replied that he found it
necessary to keep him as a friend, that others might not have him ; else he
would play him a trick that would bring him to terms ; and that the Ambassadors
had told him what their message was, which he advised them by no
means to deliver, as the king of England was destroying himself. He was
surprised that the King had a reputation for wisdom, for really he was a
madman, and was benefiting the Queen by his confession that the sentence
had come to his notice ; and he had told Henry that he would not help him
against the Pope in this matter.
The Pope then went on to the practice about Calais, of which Cifuentes
wrote in the summer. The King, Grand Master, and Admiral were present,
but Cifuentes could give them no answer. * * * Marseilles,
