Indenture made 26 June 1544, 36 Hen. VIII., between Matthew earl of Levenax on the one part and Lord Chancellor Wriothesley, President Suffolk and Secretary Paget, the King's commissioners, on the other, witnessing that for the weal and quiet of Scotland and preservation of Levenax and his friends from the malice of the Cardinal and the Earl of Arane, tending to their ruin and the extreme dissolution of Scotland, the said earl covenants:—(1.) To observe the covenant concluded by Wm. earl of Glencarne, Robt. bp. elect of Caithenes, Thos. Bishop and Hugh Cunygahame, by indenture dated at Carlisle 17 May 36 Hen. VIII. (2.) To serve the King, as his subject, against all who impugn his right, title and authority in Scotland or offend him in any dominions in his possession, or to which he has any title. (3.) To surrender the castle and territory of Dumbritayn in Scotland into the King's hands. (4.) To surrender the whole isle of Bute to the King, and help to win the castle of Rosse in the said island and deliver it to the King. (5.) When the King, having the direction of that realm, shall have deputed him governor thereof he shall call no parliament nor do anything of moment without the King's consent. (6.) To renounce all pacts contrary hereto with any of his own countrymen or others, and serve the King against all princes and potentates, without exception. (7.) To foresee that the King's pronepte be not conveyed out of Scotland, and to travail to get her into his own keeping and deliver her to the King.
And where the Earl's suit for the marriage of the King's niepte, Lady Margaret Douglasse, is granted by the King, upon hope that the said marriage shall be an indissoluble knot between their posterities, the Earl binds himself to endow her of and in, 1, the lands of Glenfruine, Ballor' and Auchinturleis within the earldom of Levenax and sheriffdom of Dumbartone, 2, the lands and baronies of Crukisfe, Ynchechinane, Craig of Neilstoun and Tarbowten within the lordships of Darnelie and sheriffdom of Renfrelles, and 3, the lands of Erere within the sheriffdom of Pertht, all which lands the Earl promises to be clearly worth yearly 500 mks. st.
The King is pleased:—(1.) To confirm the promise made by Wharton and Bowes, his commissioners, by indenture dated at Carlisle 17 May 36 Henry VIII. (2.) To grant the said Earl the marriage of Lady Margaret Douglas and, in recompense of the loss he will sustain in France by this submission, and of Dunbreton and Bute, to give the Earl and her, in tail, lands to the clear yearly value of 6,800 mks. Scots, which amounts to 1,700 mks. st. (3.) To aid the Earl for two or three months with 500 men besides the men whom the King will send to receive Dunbritayn castle; the time not now being propice for sending a notable army as the King's army is in France. (4.) When the King shall obtain the direction and rule of Scotland, the Earl shall be governor under him with a council named by the King, the Earl being bound never to call parliament or do anything of moment without the King's consent. (5.) When governor, Levenax shall have such of the revenues as may be spared, the entertainment of the King's pronept and the ordinary charges of the realm reserved. (6.) George Striveling of Glorot, now captain of Dunberton, having now to leave his said office, shall have a pension of 100 mks. until advanced to lands of like yearly value.
In witness whereof, &c. Signed and sealed by Levenax.

The King is informed that the bakers retained to serve in the voward and rearward remained unpaid by the treasurers of the wards. Doubtless you remember that order was taken here for all bakers and brewers to be accounted parcel of the wards to which they were appointed, and also that money received for victuals (they having no special treasurer) should be delivered to the special treasurer of the ward. As the King will have the same order taken in the battle, you shall see the said bakers and brewers paid. By your letters of the 23rd it appears that you lack 294 wagons for munitions and 120 lymoners. We have heretofore signified that, being so near Flanders, you should send thither for them. It appears that this lack has been a great hindrance to you, but it would be a much greater prejudice if there should be any lack at the coming over of the army. We now write to Francis Hall, the King's agent in Flanders, to provide 1,000 wagons and 1,100 lymoners for the battle, to be at Calais or its marches the 6th of next month; and we think you should speak with Mons. de Buren or any other that repairs oat of those parts to solicit their despatch. We marvel at your writing that you know not the rate of pay for the strangers, and that Chamberlayn can show you nothing therein, who wrote that he had received from the ambassador with the Emperor a book subscribed by Mons. de Lyre of the rates of wages given by the Emperor to the Almains, the original, as he wrote on the 15th, being sent to Vane and Wynybank, and the copy retained by him. Either he abused us in so writing or forgot himself in making relation to your lordships, as you shall tell him. As to the want of carriages for the boats and bridges, if you lack any necessaries for their conveyance you shall supply yourselves as seems convenient. We send herewith 200 books "of th'ordonnances for the warre" to be distributed among the captains.

26 June.783. Griffith Appenryth and John Broke to the Council.
R. O.Received theirs of the 18th on the 20th, and answered it on the 21st, to the effect (here repeated for security and because we were commanded to write often) that, the 60 hoys sent to London and the 50 sent to Ipswich being here arrived, "I" (fn. 1) resorted to my lord of Norfolk for instructions, who willed that all should be sent into the Downs until the King's further pleasure. The lord Privy Seal, on arriving, commanded that 50 hoys at least should go to London, and thereupon, on the 17th, 18th and 19th, inst., "we" charged 65 to go to London. Upon receipt of your Lordships' letters we charged 40 to repair to Ipswich, which were detained in this haven by a North wind until Wednesday, the 25th.
That the hoys and "playtes," after unlading, may lose no time in sailing again, we must be among them every tide to force them forward. To help us we have taken "him that was with Broke in Flanders, which is a mariner well languaged and acquainted among them," trusting that you will allow him 16d. or 12d. a day. On the last of this month the King shall owe 59 hoys one month's wages, besides the month's wages they have received, on 9 July he shall likewise owe to 139 one month's wages and on 15 July to 100 one month's wages, besides the month's wages they have received. We beg that we may have the money in time and in crowns of the sun or rose, or whole groats. Ask whether to dismiss any of the hoys and playtes. Griffith Appenrith, who is joined with me for payment of the said hoys, stands in doubt now in August to be elected mayor of this town. For the sake of the King's service, both he and I beg your Lordships to write requiring the Deputy and Council, and commanding the Mayor and burgesses, not to elect him this year. Calais, 26 June.

R. O.Has received their letters of the 21st, with a schedule enclosed, answering that there was no such lack as he wrote of. To prove what he wrote, encloses an answer signed by the "masters of the ordnance of this field"; which the surveyor of Calleis and the Master Gunner, who are at Court, can confirm, for they were at the receipt of all that came to Calleis. Wrote yesterday what they intended to do. Camp at Fyence, 26 June. Signed.

R. O.2. "Defaults of the proportion of my lord Privy Seal's ward assigned from the Tower," viz. falcons 2, shot "to the same" 720, sacre shot 720, morrispikes 1,000, "all kind of miner's tools," horse shoes 3,000, horseshoe nails 222,000, panels for cart saddles 95, traces in pairs 150. Signed by Sir Arthur Darcy and Henry Johnson.

P. 1. Endd.: "The defaults of the proportion of the Rearward assigned from the Tower. With the answer of the master of th'ordnance to the same."
R. O.3. Answer to the preceding, item by item, showing that in most cases the full number was sent; in others, that no more can be spared; and, in the case of horse-shoe nails, that the writer cannot as yet provide enough for "the King's battle," and miners' tools are in the store house at Calais.
In Sir Thomas Seymour's hand, pp. 2. Headed: "The answer to the lack of the proportion of the Rearward."
R. O.4. Reply to § 3, denying some statements, explaining others, and generally defending the demands made in § 2. There are no miners' tools at Calais, the traces brought by the "lymmyneers" will not carry the least sacar in the field, and when they break there is nothing to repair them. Here are 500 labourers that have no kind of weapon. Signed: Arthur Darcy: Rychard Caundysshe.

26 June.786. Norfolk and Others to the Council.
R. O.Messrs. de Bewers and Reux are now here and will tonight return to St. Omer's. As this letter requires haste, and I, the lord Privy Seal, must this night return to the camp, we forbear to write our discourses with them, the effect whereof was, as I, the duke of Norfolk, wrote on Saturday was seven-night, not to meddle with Arde or Boleyn. We have concluded to lay siege to Monstrell; which they cannot assure us of winning, but are not in despair, thereof. They say that neither Arde nor Boleyn will be won under two months; and advise that the King "should shortly s[end some] good nombre to [lye] at Guysnes." They say that the Dolphyn shall come against us with 800 men of arms, 800 light horses, 10,000 French footmen and 3,000 Almains, if they can get them; also that the duke of Orleaunce shall go against the Emperor with 22,000 or 24,000 Swysers, 1,500 men of arms and 700 or 800 light horses; but that neither will give battle if good order be kept. Please show the King that I the lord Privy Seal must take 200 pioneers, leaving, in both bands, but 500, which is "too few to lay siege to such a town." From the camp of Alyngbon, 26 June. Signed: T. Norffolk: J. Russell: T. Cheyne: H. Surrey: Water Devereux: John Wallop: Franssys Br[yan]: T. Ponynges: John [Haryngton].
P.S.—Mons. de Bewers says he has 4,400 horsemen ready, and near 4,000 footmen, and trusts to have the rest ready shortly.

26 June.787. Sir Thomas Palmer and Edward Vaughan to the Council.
R. O.Yesterday, towards night, we received your Lordship's advice of the 22nd inst., and immediately despatched Hams with advice of our proceedings with Mons. du Bureyn and Luthmaker and our conclusion to send Thomas Chamberleyn towards Andwarp, who is gone to conclude with Luthmaker. Du Bureyn, who was at the camp with Norfolk, returned yesternight late; and this morning we told him of the King's pleasure to be despatched of all horsemen not yet arrived. He answered that it could not but greatly grieve him that his things took no better effect, but he was always ready to serve as the King should command; and that the King should be so charged, as in this case, for no service grieved him more than his own loss of credit "among those sort of people," who have come so far and been at charge to furnish themselves upon his promise, for he thinks that 25,000 cr. will scant satisfy the 600 horse, whose captain is already at Turney (and he showed a letter from the captain received this morning). Du Bureyn sent incontinent to the captain to stay his men and come himself hither, with whom he (De Bureyn) will travail to fulfil the King's expectation with as little charge as he would do for the Emperor. As the sum mentioned seems wondrous great, we dispatch this messenger for your resolution before Du Bureyn can conclude with his said captain. Desire treasure for the despatch of the same; for only 800l. st. remains besides what Chamberlayn had with him to despatch Luthmaker. Saynt Thomas, 26 June. Signed.

26 June.788. [Fane] to the Captains of Landenbeg's Horsemen.
R. O.The coming of bearer, Frederic Spedt, gives us occasion to signify how, for the bad dealing of the Sieur Landenberger (who has neither fulfilled his pact with the King nor distributed the money he received of us, the King's commissaries—over 18,000 cr.—to the men under him, and has sought to make discord between the King and the Emperor) the King refuses him and all his footmen; but, knowing the affection of you horsemen to serve him, requires you to leave at once with Frederic Spedt to Aere, where the King will be on 5 July and will accomplish all that we here promise, as you will learn from Frederic Spedt, to whom we have paid 4,000 cr. for you in order that you may have nothing to do with Landenberger. At Aere you will be paid all arrears, for carriages, &c. Antwerp 26 June, 1514.

26 June.789. The Queen of Hungary to Chapuys.
R. O.
[Spanish
Calendar
vii. 131.]
Because Landenberger's horse and foot complain that the King of England's commissioners have neither kept letters of retainer nor promise, and especially would not pay them a month's wages (they maintaining always that they have been ready to serve the King and asked no other entertainment than the Emperor gives, and making little of their Colonel, for whom they would not have come so far but only to serve the King by the Emperor's request made in presence of the King's ambassador), finding it very strange that the King would dismiss them without payment, she wishes Chapuys to represent this to the King, who in future will have no credit with Almains if he thus rids himself of these without reasonable payment. If the King will not have Landenberger himself, his men, at least the horsemen, will [not?] (fn. 2) refuse to serve under such captain as the King will give them. By Chapuys' late letters to the Emperor she could not understand whether the King intends to get rid of horsemen as well as footmen, nor do his commissioners know; and meanwhile they remain oppressing the poor peasants. Chapuys shall move the King to consider how important it is to his reputation not to rid himself of the said men of war as his commissioners have done, and without paying them for the time they have been in his service; and, especially, although the commissioners say that they have paid 18,000 cr. (which is not payment for one month) and have the acquittances, the men say that they have not received so much, but only horsemen 5,000 cr. and footmen 6,000 cr.; whereas the horsemen wish at least payment for three months, with their coming and returning, saying that horsemen are never levied for one month, and the footmen demand at least one month's pay and fifteen days for their return. Doubts that the commissioners, if they have disbursed 18,000 cr., would count the "loufgelt" as pay, which is not the custom of the High Almains, who take the first money to satisfy the footmen until the day of muster. If the said men of war are not reasonably satisfied she will be unable to prevent their going into France, having come so far that they may go thither before she could be ready to prevent them; and this will be a great succour to the enemy, who will even bruit that the King has no wish to hurt them since he dismisses his men of war. The King ought also to consider that she is greatly harassed by the said men of war, who have come so far into the country, and hopes that he will not dismiss them without paying them and conducting them to the place of muster, there to disperse them and not to throw them upon his friends. By all possible means the King is to be induced to retain and pay them, so as to make them march towards his army. Chapuys shall spare no diligence to advertise her of the King's resolution in order that she may send word to the gentleman Altestayn, whom the Emperor has sent to them, what to do after having retained them to service.
P.S.—In case the King will in no wise use the said men of war, either footmen or horsemen, he is to be persuaded at least to pay them what is reasonably their due for the time they have served and their return, without halting at any misunderstanding between his commissioners and the Colonel, for which the men should not suffer, especially the horsemen who have mounted and armed for his service. But this is not to be put forward as long as there is any hope of the King's using the men. Again recommends this affair to him, as that upon which depends a great part of the success of the two enterprises against the common enemy.

26 June.790. The Queen of Hungary to Norfolk.
R. O.Yesterday, received his, of the 23rd, mentioning that his note written for the wagons has been lost, and requiring 294 wagons and 120 lymoniers. Apparently he has not seen the notice she gave to Fras. Halle, of the garrison of Calais, upon her last year's order for the Emperor's army touching horses and wagons. Letters alone are not enough, for they must have time to march (even if they are ready), men to conduct them and ready money to defray expenses. Sends the remonstrance which the commissioners made to her upon this. As she long ago told the late ambassador, and others who have been with her, she will give like assistance as she did last year. Sends this by the Count de Roeux and by the post, and he can do the like hereafter. Assures him that the wagonners will not leave their houses without money, and must have men of the country to conduct them or disorder and delay will ensue; and asks him to send a treasurer, with money to defray expenses.

27 June.793. Fane and Vaughan to the Council.
R. O.The day, after my (fn. 3) arrival at Andwerp, came to me a horseman (fn. 4) of Landenberghe's band with whom I had practised at Mastreght, saying he was "sorry that we were departed from them as we were" but came to know my pleasure. I told him that, being so abused by Landenbergh, the King would neither have him nor his footmen, but was willing to take the horsemen; and I asked if they "were minded thereunto." He answered that they were willing, and many among them could lead the horsemen as well as Landenbergh or better. I said that, as he seemed "a sober and an honest man, if he would promise to bring them to Ayre, to serve in the present wars against France, I would deliver him an honest sum of money to bring them, "in part payment of their solde." And so gave him 4,000 cr., took his receipt, and despatched him with a letter to the gentlemen of the horsemen's band (copy enclosed). (fn. 5) This man brought 500 horsemen to Landenbergh, and his qualities moved me to put this trust in him. The letter to the gentlemen was written purposely lest Landenbergh and his footmen should follow the horsemen and offer to serve. The hasty departure of this bearer gives no time to write more. Andwerp, 27 June. Signed: R. Fane.
I, Stephen Vaughan, lacking leisure to write, signify that Blewmantell arrived on the 25th inst.; and I, having just received your letters by Mr. Hall, of Calles, am paying "him" 2,000l Flemish, as you direct. Andwerp, "the day as before."
Mr. Fane is sent for to Bruxelles, to the Queen, at the complaint of certain of Landenberghe's folks; and as bearer will not tarry we will signify how things go, by Blewmantell, tomorrow. Signed: S. Vaughan.

R. O.
[Spanish
Calendar,
vii. 134.]
Has received his letters with those of the Sieur de Corrieres, and the English ambassador here has delivered a writing (copy enclosed). (fn. 6) The substance of the whole consists in five points:—
1. Touching the going of the King and the Emperor with the armies into France, there is no more to be said, save that, upon opportunity, Chapuys shall thank the King for his care for the Emperor, using reciprocal courtesies.
2. Touching his passage and that of his army, and how (as the writing states) he will divide it as he shall see best, Chapuys must have regard to the Emperor's answer to Secretary Paget and the charge of De Corrieres, and obtain that at least 30,000 men may be sent into France; also having re gard to what was expressly agreed touching this enterprise when Don Fernande was in England. For the rest the King may take what order he pleases, Chapuys giving him graciously to understand that this is the more requisite in view of the forces which the King himself learns that the King of France has and may have, to the end that he may be constrained to divide them so that they will be the more easily overcome. In this Chapuys must use his customary discretion and give the King no occasion of suspicion or irritation.
3. As to not venturing without good support and assurance of victuals, will have due regard thereto; but has not yet perceived that the French have spoilt and burnt the victuals as the King has been advertised.
4. Touching the enterprise of Paris, the King ought to remember what was advised therein when Don Fernande was in England, and nothing has since happened to change it, but rather Paget made the thing so easy when he was at Spire that he said the presence of the King and Emperor was unnecessary and it might easily be done by their lieutenants. As to the forces of the King of France, learns daily that they are not nearly so great as was thought, their principal hope resting in 12,000 Swiss, who, if the King of England would have contributed something, might easily have been hindered; and even yet the French Ambassador who purchases them was not altogether certain of them, and perhaps the late defeat of the French in Lombardy will make them hesitate further; at all events they will not be able to leave until the end of the present month. Finally, if the King sends in conjunction with the Emperor 30,000 men into France, as the said Secretary expressly certified (and that they would march before the 10th of this month) and makes them advance (cheminer), the French will remain weak, both on this side and that, having to divide their forces, and since the said King may see and hear "combien il yra" it is very requisite that he provide thus. As to the King's news from France, much has lately been forged to cover the last defeat, but he may be certain that what the Emperor wrote him is the pure truth, who expects, with God's aid, still better success.
5. Touching Landemberg, cannot write more than he did lately, until he has news from the person whom he sent to him. Persists always that it would be fitting, indeed very requisite, that the King should use him, because of the inconveniences which he has written to Chapuys and expressed to the King's ambassador. Even though the King may bring 40,000 Englishmen, still, what was expressly treated with Don Fernande touching the foreign horse and foot is not fulfilled. The King ought not to halt at the language used by Landemberg; for, if in his service it was continued, the Emperor would, upon notice, chastise him satisfactorily. Leaves Chapuys to touch upon this point if he has opportunity. Metz, 27 June, 1544.
P.S.—Has advertised the ambassador here resident that the new duke of Lorraine lately wrote with his own hand to Granvelle that the Cardinal of Lorraine his uncle had charged him to learn if the said Cardinal might have a passport to the Emperor. Granvelle replied that, not knowing the cause, he would not venture to move the Emperor therein. The Duke has since come hither, and has told Granvelle that the Cardinal would not tell him the cause, but he thinks that it was to speak of peace. Has taken no notice of it, and Granvelle also has shown himself unconcerned (demonstre non sen socier). Of this the King is to be advertised that he may know all that passes here, as amity requires.

28 June.795. Norfolk and Others to the Council.
R. O.[This] day, had long conference with [Mons.] de Reux, who persists, as they wrote before, that whatever town they besiege will be well furnished with footmen and men of arms. Monstrell cannot be surrounded, considering the puissance of the enemies; and neither he nor Mons. de Bewers will consent to divide the siege, but will lay it all on one side, although "I the lord Privy Seal said I had not heard of any town won which was not besieged round abouts." Are sorry to write that, by their words, neither Arde nor Boleyn will be won under two months, and that Monstrell will be hard to get. Asked what he advised the King to do, who was coming over sea very shortly. He said he was not qualified to advise so great a Prince, but, upon pressing, thought the King "should draw the same way he did when he went to Terwyn, and so towards Braye, and that we should not go over the water of Some unto his Majesty were joined with us; and [in the m]ean time we should destroy the country [of Bo]lenoyse, in doing whereof we think our time [to be i]ll employed, the country for the more part being al[ready] destroyed and small hurt to be done unto the corn be ripe." He would do his best to see the King victualled, but could make no surety.
We think these men most desire that with the King's money we should defend their countries. And our men (Norfolk's) have been fain to drink water since yesterday morning and see no likelihood of any drink coming before tomorrow night, notwithstanding their fair promises. Forbear to spend the King's store of wines, and Calais is too far off to send any; also the beer there is so sour that no man can drink it, and "of our portion" is lost 200 tun.
Finally, determined to go tomorrow to Bourdes, 8 miles from Monstrell and Terwyn and 12 from Boleyne, where, on Monday the lord Privy Seal shall join with Norfolk, and Mons. De Bewers join them "with ijm iiijo [hors]emen, as he saith, and not with iiijm horsemen as our fo ............................. hym ............................... we woll remayne ............... what shalbe thought .............. good lordships to consid[er the] p[re]mis[es] ...... wt diligence t'advertise us what his Ma [ties pleasure] shalbe to have us to doe"; and also what he intends to do upon arriving [at] Calyce.

His suit is to have a passport to England to tell Linoux of his brother's fate. Begs Granvelle to examine him. Offers to send news if Granvelle has any for the King, as he intends to send a man next day. Escript a mon logis, ce xxviiie de Juing, 1544.

29 June.799. Chapuys to Charles V.
R. O.
[Spanish
Calendar,
vii. 138.]
Receiving this morning the Emperor's letters of the 23rd, inst., had himself, at once, carried to the King, without asking audience as the custom is considering the haste of the affair and that audience might be put off, especially because of the marriage which was being celebrated between the earl of Lynus and Dame Margaret Douglas, the King's niece. Coming to Court, as the King was not yet ready, communicated to the Council the contents of the said letters, and made representations in conformity thereto and to the Queen of Hungary's letters of the 25th, containing the complaints of Landemberg and his company. Finally, however, they decided that the King ought not to use any such unreasonable men, in whom was neither faith nor surety, especially as regards the footmen, for the reasons touched in Chapuys's last letters. As to the horsemen (where was not so much difficulty) the King would be content to use them, at the same pay as the Emperor gives, as he had told Landemberg's commissioners (commis) who were here, who had half offered to make Landemberg condescend thereto, or else to gain most of the horsemen in spite of him. The Council, moreover, said that the Emperor had men enough to prevent Landemberg and his band passing into France and they themselves cared not a gooseberry for their so passing, but rather desired it as a means of emboldening the king of France to take the field and abide battle; but he thinks that they would not have used this language after he showed the difficulty and dangers of preventing their passage, and the "desreputacion" to the Emperor if they passed into France, besides that that would open the door to innumerable others to infringe the edict of the Diet and despise the Emperor's authority.
Afterwards went to the King, who justified himself by what he had said to De Courrieres and Chapuys, and added that he was since advertised that his commissioners (commis) had disbursed certain money to Landemberg and his band upon promise that they would at once march, and afterwards they would do nothing but insisted upon having more, with high words and threats, and pursued one of the commissioners as far as Brussels, where some of Landemberg's horsemen watched him for days in order to surprise him. As to the horsemen, he said the same as his Council. And, finally, he told Chapuys that he thought Landemberg would in nowise take the part of France, having shown himself when here indignant against the French king for cutting off the head of his brother, whom he desired to avenge; and that, if the Emperor feared it, he could himself use Landemberg and his men, who would pay more regard to the Emperor than to him: and he could not but think that if the whole troop came to his service they might make some disorder. Showed him that the Emperor had too many men and was at great charge to harass the enemy on the side of Italy, and that no disorder or inconvenience was to be feared when once things between him and Landemberge were settled, begging that he would consider the whole and afterwards inform Chapuys of his intention. To this he agreed, giving Chapuys to understand that Landemberg was retired. When all is said, does not expect to obtain more than the above.
The Duke of Suffolk is not yet gone, but nearly all his men of the battle are already beyond sea. He will leave tomorrow very early, and with him the bp. of Winchester, overseer of the victuals, and the Grand Esquire with several other lords. By what he has told Chapuys the King will have the enterprise of Montreal made while he is preparing to cross, who will not remove from this for eight or nine days yet. The King seems to have taken a greater fancy to go in person since the news of the Emperor's victory in Italy, which Chapuys announced as in the Emperor's letters of the 18th inst. Also communicated the particulars which the Marquis del Gast wrote to him (Chapuys). The King rejoiced at the news, and no less at the progress of Don Fernando de Gonsaga. Where the Emperor formerly desired to know how long the King would continue the war; Chapuys will venture to say that it will not be longer than the term agreed upon, aud that he will soon tire of it, because money is not so abundant with him as was thought. Divers causes, make Chapuys suspect this, especially that the King has already made finance of a good sum in Antwerp and was speaking (in great secrecy, however,) to divers merchants, as well strangers as others, to be surety for him at Antwerp for 400,000 or 500,000 cr. and more, to be repaid only at Christmas, the interest of which will amount to much: He is borrowing from this town a sum which can hardly aid him, viz., 20,000l. st., upon security of rent, at interest of 12, per cent., which it is not likely that he would do if well furnished with money. True it is that, as he likes always to have more money in his coffers, it might be that he acts as above for the early prevention of all scarcity.
The marriage of the earl of Lynus and lady Margaret Douglas was made this morning at mass, the King and Queen attending; and it is said that the King has promised the bridegroom and lady 3,000 or 4,000 ducats a year. London, 29 June 1544.

29 June.802. Wotton to Henry VIII.
R. O.
St. P., ix., 722.
Has received a letter from the Council with a copy of the answer made to Mons. de Courrieres, which he has shown to the Emperor. After reading it the Emperor rejoiced that, since the despatch of Mr. Secretary Paget, Henry had better health, and considered that, by his coming to Calais, he would be able to forward the common affairs. As for himself the Emperor desired Henry to weigh the reasons he gave to Paget, showing that he cannot now tarry at home, and as for the division of Henry's army he doubted not but it will be well employed; and when letters came from Mons. de Courrieres he would make a further answer if necessary. Has already signified, by Nicholas the courier, the Emperor's answer in the matter of Landenbergh. Moved it to him again, and perceives that he much desires Henry to retain Landenbergh, or at least his men; and, if Henry cannot be induced thereto, he has written to the Queen to do her best to prevent Landenbergh's going into France. Wotton said Landenbergh had so misused himself that Henry could not have anything ado with him; and this the Emperor allowed, but said that times were changed since his good brother took Tourney and Terouane, and such men now cost more and and must be somewhat borne with, "and as for Landenbergh, we shall afterwards find a time to order him as he deserveth." The Emperor said he thought that the duke of Lorayne (who is now well recovered) would come to him shortly and make some overture from the French king, for the Duke sent word that the Cardinal of Lorayne required access to him for that purpose, and the Emperor sent answer that the Cardinal need not trouble, for he would hear nothing of it.
The Emperor, whose abode here has been for ordnance, victuals and money, will draw near his army, which lies before Lygny castle, the Frenchmen having themselves burnt the town. The Count de Brienne and his brother, the Count de Roussy, are both within the castle. The Viceroy has written that he marvels that Commercy was so soon yielded, and trusts shortly to have Lygny. The Emperor says he intends to take a place or two (meaning, probably, St. Digier and Vitry in Parthois) before going towards Chaalons or Troye. Encloses copies of the entertainment of soldiers and men of war for this year, subscribed by the Emperor and his Secretary Oburnburger.
Thanks for the deanery of York.
On the 26th, the morrow of the foresaid communication with the Emperor, the duke of Lorayne came hither, and is here yet. This day the Emperor sent Secretary Joisse to say that he had expected the Duke to make some overture for peace, "seeing that his uncle, the Cardinal of Lorayne, could obtain no safe-conduct to come hither," but he had made none.
They of Lygny say they will defend it to the last man. It was thought that they would not keep it so long. The Viceroy has beaten down divers of its towers, &c., "but the battery to make breach was set but yesterday." Metz, 29 June 1544. Signed.

29 June.803. Wotton to Paget.
R. O.Mr. Honnynges and Mr. Husey, his friends, have advertised him that Paget showed them that the King bestows the deanery of York upon him—right pleasant news, not so much for his own profit (for if he could not live with the living he had before of the King, he could not do so with twenty times so much) as for the evidence of the King's favour and the increased power to bear the charges of the King's service, which but for this help he could not continue. And yet what help it shall be now, when he has most need, unless special favour be shown him in the first-fruits Paget may well consider, whose help he desires therein.
Yesterday came to me one who calls himself Jaspar Cambelle de Fussy, born in the county of Charolois but a Scot's son, saying that he was many years Mons. Daubigny's servant, who died this last Lent, and, because the Count Darley, captain of the French king's guard and brother to the Count of Linoux, was put in possession of his said uncle Daubigny's lands and goods, this Jaspar became the Count Darley's servant. But the French king, hearing that Linoux takes the King's part, upon Corpus Christi even last put Darley and certain of his household in prison a la Bastille; so this Jaspar fled, with great danger, out of France, intending to go to Linoux in England; and he desired me to help him to a passport through the Emperor's country. I referred the matter to Mons. de Granvelle, who thought that Linoux should first be advertised of it; and, as I know not whether he be a spy or not, I thought that counsel good, and I suppose he will be staid here till word come from Linoux. Jaspar writes to Linoux. I pray you by next letter to advise me what to do further therein. (fn. 9) This Jaspar says that the Dolphin is at Chaalons, Orleans at Troyes in Champagne, and Guise betwixt that and Langres, none of them with any number of men but Guise, who has 5,000 or 6,000 footmen. Vendome is gone into Picardy. The French king hunts about Paris, "where they fortify apace." The voice in France is that the King sends 20,000 men against them. If the Emperor had sent straight to Troye when Commercy was taken, he might have won it; but now they fortify it. "This Jaspar was an old servant of Mons. Daubigny's and followed him in all the wars, whereby seemeth to have seen and known much." Metz, 29 June 1544. Signed.

The King, having seen your letters of 28 June and credence sent by Rychemount herald, answers that, touching the siege of Monstrell, (albeit Mons de Reus and Mons. de Buren, either for safeguard of their pieces, fear of the enemy or to obtain our treasure, practise to have you march to suit them and sometimes advise and sometimes dissuade a siege of Monstrell) your are to proceed earnestly to this siege, and use them as counsellors for victuals, carriage, &c., "but in other things, feeling their opinions, to proceed according to his Majesty's expectation of you." The King thinks they should lay their siege along from the Old Town to the gate leading to Abbeville, but they, as on the spot, will see best what to do.
