Their harbour, as Cromwell knows, is now utterly destroyed. Unless
remedy be provided, the inhabitants, as well shipowners as other, will be
forced to forsake the town. Constrained by poverty, and unable to come
themselves, they send this petition by Sir John Thompson, desiring Cromwell
to move the King for remedy. Dover, "under the seal of office of mayoraltie

1479. Henry VIII. and Francis I.
Memorial drawn up by M. de Polizy, bailly of Troyes, concerning
certain conversations which the king of England has held with him.
Henry complains that all Christian princes will think that the friendship
between Francis and himself is not so sincere as at the beginning. As to the
innovations which Francis had promised that Henry should not make, their
honor is not injured, nor their promise broken ; for the Pope has commenced
in three ways,—by the censures which have been published in Flanders, by
not accepting the "excusateur," &c. ; which [Henry] says he has notified,
by his ambassadors, to the King his brother.
He complains that "procuration" is demanded of him, and that it is said
the business would have been arranged to the satisfaction of him who had had
it. He answers that the Pope, in the first instance, when he was at Marseilles,
said that he had not got the process, so that at that time the procuration
would have been of no use. But the Pope did not speak the
truth, for it is certain that the process is with him. Moreover, the King
(Francis) had told the duke of Norfolk, when procuration was talked of, that
he himself should be his procurator. (fn. 2) Therefore Henry thinks it very strange
that complaint should now be made about the procuration. For his own
sake and that of all other princes he would never grant it ; if he did, it would
be consenting to have no "excusateur," which he will not do. Nor will he
unmake the laws which have been passed by the estates of his realm for the
public weal, nor can he, as he says.
He says Francis has stated that the Pope himself has acknowledged the
justness of his cause ; which is enough for him, because the Pope and Francis
understand it, as also do the legists of France, especially with regard to the
"excusateur." (fn. 3) He, therefore, wonders why Francis should speak of having
procuration, which would be to abolish the "excusateur," contrary to the
opinion of all [the legists] even of his realm.
If the Pope say that action has been taken against him over here, and
that great injuries even have been done to the Holy See, [it may be answered
that] the Pope has done the same to Henry. But he passes over the injuries
done on either side ; for he does not ask, nor will he make, any reparation.
He only asks that justice should be done him. If it be not done, he will not
be concerned about it, for he has provided for his own affair. He is quite
satisfied with having God and right on his side.
He complains of so much homage and footkissing, which is contrary to
what had been said to him at Calais in reference to the Emperor. He had
advised that the Pope should not be trusted, but his advice has not been
observed. Nor has the promise touching the marriage been kept ; which was
not to have been concluded if his affair was not settled. He is surprised that
the clauses of the contract are kept from him. He says that if he [Francis]
had pressed the Pope more, the latter would have complied ; but [Francis]
has done him too much honor and good cheer.
He complains much of Francis' council, who have turned him from the
good opinion which he used to have. He does not know if they wish to treat
him after the old fashion of France, which is to entertain people as long as
they have need of them, without coming to the point, and to use dissimulation.
But they will not do so with him, for he has known the world too long. He
speaks, and desires to be spoken to, plainly. When he is addressed frankly,
he will be won over with his person and his substance, but not otherwise.
His friendship can profit, and is worth as much as the Pope's.
He cannot think for what reasons an interview is spoken of between them
two. If it is desired in order to induce him to undo anything which he has
done, a great mistake is made, and the friendship will diminish instead of
increasing. (fn. 4) It is two months since Henry has said a word to the Bailly
touching the interview.
He says that he is not governed by, but governs, his Council ; otherwise
the Council would be King, and not he. He desires their opinions, but decides
for himself, as every King ought to do.
He commanded the Bailly to make his cordial recommendations to Francis,
and to say that he trusted Francis would not doubt his friendship.
In such conversations, and in many others which the Bailly cannot remember,
Henry accused him of ingratitude and breach of promise, and said he
spoke plainly because the Bailly was about to depart. The Bailly answered
that he would rather be the poorest gentleman in France than have to relate
such conversations to Francis ; that he was not come hither to carry back
words which would tend to diminish the friendly relations ; that there was no
need they should be known ; that Francis took great trouble in Henry's affair,—
for his prison, and that of Messieurs [his children], caused him less anxiety—
not to speak of the expence, which Henry must be aware is not small ; and
that it was to be feared lest, on hearing of such discourses, Francis in his turn
should talk of ingratitude. Prayed him, therefore, to discontinue them.
Henry then left the Bailly, and went to M. de Castillon, who that day had
done him reverence. His friendship has decidedly cooled, but he imputes
no blame to Francis,—only to his councillors. He says that he recognizes
the Pope as bishop of Rome, or as Pope, according as he wishes to be named ;
not that the Pope has any superiority over him or his subjects. He will
not, in consequence of this, be less Christian, but more so ; for in everything
and in every place he desires to cause Jesus Christ to be recognized, who
alone is the patron of Christians ; and he will cause the Word to be preached,
and not the decrees and canons of the Pope. (fn. 5) His Ambassador with the
Emperor has advertised him that, in consequence of the joy which the
Spaniards have had on hearing of the revictualling of Coron, they have
threatened to invade his realm. He says he is not afraid of it, and that
they might perhaps come and not return. All the English Council is very
sorry that their King is so bitter. He complains much that the [French]
Cardinals did not leave the Consistory, and others would have followed them.
The Treasurer (fn. 6) is very sorry his master is so deeply moved, and gives the
Bailly so to understand ; and he says that Francis should consider that
Henry has done much for him by leaving the Emperor's party. The Bailly
confessed this, but prayed him to tell his master and his Council that
they ought to consider that Francis was well aware that if he had had
Henry's friendship, "ce n'avoit esté pour des prunes," and that it had cost
him very dear. Often, after going into a passion, Henry has said that he
trusted the Bailly would not say or write anything which would diminish
the friendship between them ; and those of his Council have often done the
same. When the King saw a letter from cardinal de Tournon, stating
that he did not know what more he could do because of the innovations made
over here, contrary to his promise to the Pope, he said it was not written
after the manner of good servants desirous of fostering friendship.

1482. [Lord Lisle to Cromwell.]
With the advice of the Council here, I have caused corn to be
brought into this town out of all parts within the Pale, so that we are now
well supplied. We shall also cause such cattle as is within the Pale to be
brought in, so that we may have a store of powdered flesh, if need be.
Meanwhile we trust that by your mediation order may be taken to have
sufficient victual out of England. I have heard news that there are about
Ara and St. Omer's 500 men of arms. I am sure at St. Omer's there are
100, and Mons. de Bushi is amongst them.
