26 Sept.301. [Lord Cobham to the Council with the King.]
Harl. MS.
283. f. 284.
B.M.
I have received your Lordships' letters of the 25th inst. marveling that complaint was made there of the excess of prices of victuals here without the lack being first declared to us. Although things come not in such plenty as they did before the countries hereabouts were destroyed and the King had no army on this side, victuals are at present as cheap as ever they were since I came hither. The report made of me is utterly untrue. I remember how one came to me for the transporting of certain horses, to whose request I agreed and told him that for the price he must agree with the master of the ship. He said the master demanded 3s., which was unreasonable: and thereupon I and Mr. Treasurer awarded that but 2s. should be paid for every horse. I have already written to the mayor of Dover to send hoys and ships for the transportation of the King's horses, and if any men of war come to this coast they shall be warned to attend upon the wafting. Callais, 26 Sept. 1544.

R.O.
St. P., v. 397.
The King has received your letters to him and seen those to us with the rest out of the North, as well those brought this morning by Sir Wm. Herbert as the others by Sir Peter Mewtes and Thomas Bisshoppe. You shall despatch this bearer, Thomas Bisshoppe, to his late master, (fn. 1) with gentle letters of revocation from you and my lady his wife, advertising him that whereas (through the earl of Glenkerne and that false traitor, his son) his good will to serve has not taken effect, the King, upon consultation with him, will take order to revenge the treasons of Glenkerne and his son, to the comfort of the said earl of Lynowx and "terror of all his Majesty's and his enemies in Scotland." You shall also signify to Sir Rice Mauncell, Thomas Audeley and Winter, that the two former, each with his 200, shall repair to their homes, and Winter, after safe conducting them, "spend out his victuals in attending the return of the French ships from the New Lande and otherwise annoy his Majesty's enemies." The offers of Fernehurst and others are not to be accepted unless they will bind themselves to serve the King against all his enemies, "as well in those matters they offer as in all others"; as you shall advertise my lord Warden. The Egyptians you wrote for are to be pardoned and the rest banished; also the other Frenchmen, not in the West, shall remain until the King's further pleasure. "From the Kinges Highnes of Bolloign," 26 Sept. 1544.

Received their letters by the earl of Essex, advertising their opinion to be conformable to the King's for the way of their return, and desiring to know his pleasure upon certain points in a schedule sent apart. Order is already taken for all mentioned in the schedule. The battery pieces should be conveyed with the army, which seems a more honorable way than sending them apart; and indeed, for want of forage, the King has sent all his horsemen to Calais, so that they could not meet the ordnance beyond Hardelot. The King would be loth to have the bridges, boats and brewhouses burnt if they may be brought away. When all is ready for departure, and the "forces" which you have made, and which might serve for the town's defence, are destroyed, you, Norfolk, shall send a herald to Du Bies, advertising him that, as the Emperor has signified that he has taken peace and therein provided for the King, his Majesty, who has always more regarded the common wealth of Christendom than his private commodity, considers that the siege may hinder a good conclusion, and therefore commands you to withdraw; and if, before your departure, he will come and see you, you will, for old acquaintance and for his known good will to the amity between their masters, promise that he and those within shall come and return safe.
As the King is informed that the Dauphin is very near you, if you cannot depart without fighting, the King is to be advertised thereof (so that aid may be sent you from hence, for which purpose all our horsemen stay at Calais) and also whether you have sufficient lymoners to draw your ordnance, 800 of which are now sent.

R.O.
[Spanish
Calendar,
vii. 211.]
On the 24th inst., about 9 a.m., received his letters of the 20th and, jointly, the packet of the English ambassador resident with him, which they immediately sent, pressing at the same time to have audience of the King, who (after seeing what his ambassador wrote, and which must scarcely have pleased him) sent to excuse audience for that day on account of his being much occupied with the despatch of the duke of Suffolk, whom he intended to send on the following day to Monstreul. About three hours afterwards came the earl of Hertford (contc d'Arfoc), the Admiral and Secretary Paiget to renew the said excuse (very ill coloured, for while they were with the writers the King went out to pastime outside the town), saying that, since it was impossible for the King, for the above cause, to give them audience, he sent them, in case there was anything needing haste (hastire) or which did not require going to the King in person, to bring report of it; and if not they should have patience for that day, and on the morrow he would willingly hear them. On the writers replying, among other things, that the matter was important and requisite to be communicated with the King, the others, seeing that they could extract nothing else, began to say that the King found it strange that the Emperor's ships of war were not in the Strait, as capitulated, and also that the other vessels for re-passing his army were not ready. On being answered that the ships of war were long ago at sea, as the Queen wrote, and [as for the others?] (fn. 2) it could not be guessed there (pardela) whether they were willing to pass into England or not, and in such a case commissioners should be sent as at the passing, they made no reply thereupon, but said that, likewise, the King found it very strange that the Emperor, after having concluded the peace with France, had not advertised him to raise his camp from Monstreul and withdraw his men. Answered that, the Emperor, presupposing either that Monstreul was already won, or that the King, like an experienced prince who knew the quality and strength of the enemy, could well provide therein, it might have been imputed to rashness if the Emperor had so acted, or to desire to save the pay of the men under Mons. de Bueren's charge; moreover, as to the conclusion of peace by the Emperor, at which they were astonished, the writers were certain that the King, like a virtuous and wise prince, having well considered the whole, would be quite satisfied. And the writers agreed to write to the Queen and Mons. de Reulx to furnish victuals on the side of St. Omer, provided that the King sent commissaries thither. After this, with which they showed themselves satisfied, they said that they would go at once to the King and thought that, if possible, he would still give audience that day. However, it was impossible, as the King was in the fields and did not return until very late.
Next day, after dinner, were with the King, and explained as graciously and courteously as they could the charge contained in the Emperor's letters, beginning with the thanks therein mentioned, which he took well, not understanding, however, the last, as to his opinion about the marriage of Orleans (for, forgetting the alternative, he began to say that since the peace was concluded there was no need of other determination, but, being reminded of the alternative, he showed himself satisfied). Coming to the principal matter, he could not take it well (bien gouster), wishing somewhat to deny having given such answer to Mons. d'Arras as the writers affirmed, and he found it strange that the Emperor should have concluded peace without concluding that which concerned him, and should have had more regard to a duke of Savoy and a duke of Mantua than to him, who had ever been so useful a friend and had sustained so much expense; and, what was more, he marvelled that, at least, the Emperor had not obtained an abstinence from war between him and the French, so that he might more honorably withdraw his army, which he was determined to withdraw after offering battle to the enemy if they would have it; and that the aid proffered by the King of France against the Turk should not have moved the Emperor to the said peace, for according to his news there was no question whatsoever of the movement of the said Turk. And, likewise, the King made the same claims and complaints touching the ships of war and hoys for transport as had been made by the said Arfoc, the Admiral and Paget. Upon all which objections (having presented the bill enclosed in the Emperor's said letters concerning the submissions therein mentioned) the writers made sufficiently pertinent answers and, in addition, the representations which they thought might serve; so that he seemed half satisfied and told them in conclusion that he would communicate the whole to his Council and afterwards let them know what to write to the Emperor and also to Mons. d'Arras.
Find the King silent and pensive, with none of his usual boastful manner, but in the same mood in which he has continued since the French ambassadors began to demand congé and he had some wind of the said peace; and, from the language of the King and his people, the writers believe that the dullness and sadness chiefly proceeds from fear that there may be shame and harm at the retreat of his army. This morning the King sent Secretary Paiget to tell them that, having considered what they had said on the Emperor's behalf, especially the inconveniences which might happen in case of delay, the King took in good part what the Emperor had done touching the peace and reservation of the treaties and to obtain the said submission (ct a tenir main a lad. submission), being quite sure that, since the Emperor was in a place of safety and out of all dangers, he would not fail to do the office of a true friend and perpetual confederate. Assured him fully of this and enlarged upon the perfect, entire and incredible affection which the Emperor bore to the King. Coming to declare to the said Secretary the contents of the Emperor's letters of the 24th inst., received late last night, he gave them to understand that their ambassador wrote the same, and that the King, conformably to the Emperor's friendly advice, had determined to withdraw his army from Monstreul towards St. Omer, praying them anew to obtain provision of victuals there and write of it earnestly to the Queen and Mons. de Reulx, which they granted; and, as it seemed from what their ambassador wrote that Mons. d'Arras, after negociating with the King of France, would pass hither, the King could not for the present resolve upon his charge, especially being so occupied as he was about his departure from hence into England, who would have crossed this morning if his great ships of convoy had arrived here, and would certainly leave within two days at the latest, which the writers believe will be a great terror to the army of Monstreul and those here, considering the little order that hitherto has been kept.
Think the King greatly pleased by the Emperor's advice touching the withdrawing of his army, in order honorably to cover the said retreat; but it would be a double pleasure, indeed he would hold it a great obligation, if the Emperor were to advertise the King of France that it was condescended to at his (the Emperor's) request, and ask the King of France to do the like, to avoid harm and inconvenience, and to let arms cease until means have been sought of appointment between them, either by the Emperor's arbitrament [or otherwise?] (fn. 3) Beg him to see to this and to believe that the King would feel much obliged to the Emperor and forget the scruples which he might have conceived; which cannot be small, however good countenance necessity and the surprise of the situation may have made him keep, notwithstanding which, however, the writers think he would not alienate himself from the Emperor unless blinded and suborned by the other side. If the King's great ships had been here in the morning he would have departed, as above, without, as they believe, telling them. If however he had wished in courtesy to warn them of it, (fn. 4) his departure, as above mentioned, will be within two days, within which time they could not find means of passing with him. Also there is no prospect of doing so; for I, Courrieres, current affairs being more intricate than they have been for a long time, do not feel myself able to deal with them alone, being commissioned only to accompany the King during the war, and I, Eustace Chappuis, because of my illness, and the air of England being so against me, and the season worst of all the year for gout, could do your Majesty no service there, and should put myself in extreme danger of life; and moreover it has always pleased your Majesty to signify that I could retire after the achievement of this enterprise. Have therefore both decided (advise) not to pass, and to remove hence when the King departs, so as to avoid the danger which might ensue; and they will draw towards Calais, where (if there is no plague) they will await news from the Emperor, especially in order to inform their successor of what they know of affairs. Beg him to regard the above and grant them licence to return to him. Boulogne, 26 Sept. 1544.

Received her letters of the 21st inst., and were guided thereby in what the Emperor wrote by his of the 20th, therein mentioned, as she will see by their answer to his Majesty. The King has twice caused instance to be made to them to write to her to order provision of victuals to be made at St. Omer; giving them to understand the first time that it was for furniture of their camp before Monstreul, but the second time letting out that it was in order to withdraw the said camp and, by that way, send their men to embark at Dunkerque, Nyeuport and Oistende. Knows not whether this is to relieve the victuals of Calais or for fear that they may carry thither, or take, the plague. The King prays her, moreover, to provide boats at the aforesaid places for their transport. Agreed very willingly to write of it, provided, however, that they should send their commissaries to see to (entendre en) both affairs, for otherwise it would be fruitless. Boulogne, 26 Sept. 1544.

26 Sept.306. Norfolk, Russell and Cheyney to the Council with the King.
R.O.Received their letters by Norfolk's trumpet, and will accordingly depart on Tuesday (fn. 5) at the furthest. Desire money sent to St. Omer for the soldiers' wages and conduct and despatch of the Burgonyones and Almaynes. If, for lack of wind, their men tarry in Flanders, or have not money to pay for meat and drink, the Council know what inconvenience might arise, and will doubtless have shipping ready for their transporting. If any are to be shipped at Calyce, the dwellers in infected houses should keep within, "and in likewise for Dovour, Canterburye and other places where th'infection is." Marten says that a great part of the boats are so rotten with the great rains that have fallen that they will never serve again and should be burnt and the iron saved. To save charges we think good "to despatch our Irishmen here and to send them to Boleyne to be the sooner carried over and in likewise the new come pioneers." Camp before Monstrell, 26 Sept. Signed.

26 Sept.307. Norfolk and Others to the Council with the King.
R.O.This day, after dinner, we went all to Mons. De Bewers' tent to declare the removing of this camp, already bruited "by such as have come from that camp," and ask his advice which way to take. He "pinched courtesies" a good while, saying he knew no more than we, but for this journey he would live and die with us, and if the Emperor had compounded without the King "per sange de Dieu, he would never after wear harness in his service"; with very good words. While talking of going by St. Omer's, a servant of Mons. de Rieux, who wears his livery and dwells in Bewrayne, came to report that the avantgarde of the Frenchmen were at Ausy les Moynes making the bridge there, and others at St. George and Jernye, which they broke before, and all of them were within half a league of Heysdyn. De Bewers sware that these bridges were made to come to Boleyne, and we must hasten thither before them or the King would be in danger, at least in retiring to Calyce; for the Frenchmen had 10,000 horsemen and a great number of footmen. With that came in Mons. de Wysmes who sware as the other did and would have had us remove to Boleyne tomorrow. We said that that was impossible, unless ordnance and baggage were left behind, but, finally, agreed to depart on Sunday, (fn. 6) crossing at Estaples at low water, for otherwise it is impossible to carry the ordnance, as my lord of Essex and Sir Hen. Knevett know. Having then "discharged us for such danger as might come to the most Royal person," we shall keep the other way, if so commanded; but the army will not be suffered to come into St. Omer's or any walled town, for De Bewers says that his own company of 1,000 horse would not be suffered in St. Omer's, and De Rieux is not now there but in Valencyan. There are above 40 sails of Englishmen and Flemings at Estaples laden with victuals, &c., which, unless we get sufficient wafting to bring them to Boleyne on Sunday or Monday morning, will be lost every one.

26 Sept.308. Vaughan to Paget.
R.O.This day, by the post I sent at mine own charge, I received your letter showing that I should go home, sending Dymock, with the rest of the money in our hands, to the King. Within three days we shall make an end. We have much ado because we took money to be repaid next Cold Mart, which was three months longer than we had credence for, and yet we were constrained to make our bills payable at six months, at 10½ per cent.; but Jasper Dowche has promised to discharge us of the payment until the Cold Mart. I will send the same Jasper with John Dymock and Thomas Lock, "for John Dymock can skill of no reckonings making but Lock can, and because we have all three been togethers in all our bargains" I thought good to send Lock to you with Dymock. I myself wait till I see an order in all things, and then we will come together to Calles. We have paid almost all our money to Damesell and will bring very little.
I kept Francis here upon a rumor of peace between the Emperor and the French king, and of the Dalphyn's marching towards Monterell with 30,000 horsemen and footmen to raise the siege; "but I perceive it is but a dream; yet would there have been great wagers laid amongst merchants here that it was true."

R.O.
St. P., x.90.
The whole French army with the Dolfyn will now be very nigh to you, and albeit the gentlemen about Mons. d'Orleans brag that they will give battle, I cannot believe that, unless at great advantage, the French king will hazard battle; and, as our camp at Monstreul is well fortified, if it were possible to keep the Frenchmen a while without battle and without re-victualling the town they would be compelled to return without succouring the town or doing any notable act, which were a deed of no less glory than the siege of Calais was to King Edward III. If we broke up the siege from Monstreul, the Emperor's men might say that that unprofitable siege hindered the common exploit against the enemy. Now it begins to appear that the French sued to the King for peace only to disjoin these two great powers.
While writing last letter, I was told that two or three French cardinals were come to Cambray, but there was only one, Tournon, and another is looked for, to be one of the hostages with the duke of Guyse, Mons. de la Val, and the Admiral's son. These men still colour their doings with Mons. Darras's tale, to which I have little to say until I hear from you. If the King meant not as Darras reported, it yet seems not amisa to pass it over without expostulating sharply until a better occasion. Your posts have ill chance, for neither through France nor Flanders do they make requisite speed. I marvel that my letters of the 20th inst. were not with you before this bearer's departure, for Granvelle promised that they should be sent straight, with all possible diligence, to the Emperor's ambassadors. Granvelle says that the Emperor labours to pacify the matter between the King and the French king; but it were expedient to prepare for all things as though his labour should take no effect, although he will do what he can if he have any respect to his own honor, for all know that he ought not to have agreed without the King's consent.

Albeit neither I nor my servants have any knowledge in buying of horses, if you send your servant hither for that purpose my men will assist him. I thank you for your good news, which I cannot recompense with like. The Emperor, being pacified with the French king, has dismissed his army. The hostages given by the Frenchmen for performance of their treaty are the duke of Guyse, a cardinal (as I take it) of Orleans, Mons. de la Val and the Admiral's son.

Her mother, to whom the administration of her kingdom is committed, and the Council think that the fugitive Matthew earl of Lennox is henceforth to be dealt with severely, but that his brother, lord Darnelie, should be honoured and aided, who is thought free from his brother's shamelessness and rashness, and who has committed nothing against Francis or her country. Begs him therefore to restore Darnelie to his former estate and possessions in France. Stirling, 26 Sept. 1544. Signed by her mother.

26 Sept.312. The Lords of Scotland to Francis I.
Epp. Reg.Sc.,
ii. 218.
Have determined jointly to commend to him the lord Darnelie, so as not to molest him with a multitude of letters about the same thing. Matthew earl of Lennox, lately, with an English fleet of 18 ships, returned into Scotland, and being, with a multitude of the English, received at a banquet in the citadel of Dumbarton, afterwards began to treat with the governor there for the delivery of the said citadel to the English. The governor showed himself virtuous in the highest degree, but the return of the earl to his senses is despaired of, and he is thought to have deserved whatever might happen to him. His brother lord Darnelie, however, should not suffer for his rashness, having always .been considered opposed to his brother's shameless conduct; and having, they are sure, committed nothing against Francis or Scotland, they beg that he may experience Francis's clemency and be restored to his place in France.

(Parker Soc.),

Received his letter of June by Falckner at this fair. Thanks him warmly for his answer to Cochlæus' book. Read it in August and it has confirmed him in the true religion. Is deeply indebted to him for his counsel so to use the world as not to lose Heaven, and not be too much immersed in money matters. Has, no doubt, too many occupations, but, except at Frankfort fairs, is seldom away from home. Has no servant and must do all his business himself, especially here at Strasburg. Yet last winter he read through the whole of the bible given him by Bullinger, and has at least learned this, that when the prophets, in Bullinger's translation, intended to describe a knave or impostor, they called him a merchant; which shows that trade is a dangerous thing. Has also received from his (H.'s) wife, since his return, the book Bullinger sent him by Froschover, which he will read when he has leisure. It is much commended by the English who favor the gospel, as our Michael (I mean Coverdale), immediately after my arrival from England, clothed it in an English dress (fn. 7) ; but I am more pleased with it in Latin. Thanks him, but is sorry to be always receiving presents when he has nothing worth sending to return. His wife sends thanks (as he has doubtless heard from Falckner) for that medal representing Concord. If there is any news from England, the bearer John will tell it better than he can write. He will also convey 12 Italian crowns for the poor exiles. Salute for me Pellican, Megander and other pious men. My wife salutes yours. Strasburg, 26 Sept. 1544.

Wharton describes a meeting between Buckleugh and certain gentlemen of the West Borders; but Buckleugh's desire of an assurance for a month or 20 days seems to be a practice to win time for his own benefit, and the writers will not grant it unless otherwise instructed. Meanwhile he and other of the King's enemies shall be pursued and annoyed.

After the letters herewith were closed, which were kept back at the request of those here, Secretary Paiget came to tell them on the King's behalf that the vanguard of the French had already passed the river "dhostier" (Authie?); and, therefore, instead of marching his army from before Monstreul towards Saint Omer, the King had resolved to make it come hither and camp near, in order to wait and see if the French would taste battle, and that for this cause the King was deciding to delay his departure for England, against the wish of all his Council. And Paiget requested that when they came to speak with the King they would mention it, and persuade him that he might with honour withdraw, seeing that he had achieved this enterprise of Boulogne and that the King of France was not coming in person. Paiget also gave them to understand that the vanguard of the French contained a number of lansknechts of those whom the Emperor had dismissed, which would seem very strange, and the King prays the Emperor to see to it as the perfect amity requires, and as the Emperor has been pleased to say to his (the King's) ambassador, and moreover to act in such a way that the world may perceive the sincere and perfect good will which the Emperor bears him. Because the writers both excuse themselves (for the causes shown in their last) from passing into England, the said secretary declared, on the King's behalf, that it would sound very ill, as well among the French as principally among all the people of England, if, after the Emperor had appointed with the French, who should remain in hostility with him, he returned without being accompanied by an ambassador of the Emperor; wherefore he prayed them with speed to advertise the Emperor and beg him to provide therein immediately.
Three hours ago arrived here three of the Emperor's ships of war, which could not have come more opportunely for the King's satisfaction, who showed great joy thereat in presence of all his Council. There was another in their company, being the admiral, which has gone off (s'est esquartee) we know not whether to carry home booty or by chance. Boulogne, 27 Sept. 1544.

R.O.We have just received, at 10 o'clock, your letter of yesterday, but cannot answer as to going by Saynt Omers until we have answer to ours sent yesterday by Richemount. Without a far greater number of lymoners the great ordnance cannot be conveyed by Saynt Omers for, where you wrote that we should have 800 lymoners, Mr. Comptroller says that only 400 came with him, and these too ill to reckon upon. It is more than necessary to have a good number sent; "and as for the bridges, boats, milnes and brewhouses there is no remedy but they must be brent." Concerning the speaking with Mons. de Bees Norfolk will accomplish it. Know no more than yesterday as to the coming of the Doulphyn. Unless more lymoners come the great ordnance must be shipped at Estaples, and good wafting provided, or else all sent that way is like to be lost. Camp before Monstrell, 27 Sept. at 11 o'clock.

27 Sept.320. Pierre Boisot and Sebastien Bourgeois to the Imperial Ambassadors.
R.O.Learn that the English have been much moved by some news which has lately reached them, insomuch that at Monstreul they will not pay the wagonners, but hang and beat them and take their mares (jumens); and those who receive money are robbed of it and their beasts by the way. Beg them to show this to the King, which is written in accordance with the Queen's letters of the 20th inst. It is to be feared that the mares and horses will only be got from the English by force, and if it is not done before the departure of Mons. de Bueren, and they are not guarded by his men, there will be great disorder. Victuallers are said to be very ill treated in both camps, and robbed and killed by the way. Have ordered the conductors to take bills for their payment since the English proceed thus.

The soldiers of the camps as well horsemen as footmen, still repair hither (100 footmen of Mr. Welden's came this morning), requiring passage into England, whom, accordingto your Lordships' letters, we will stay pending the King's further pleasure. Thus the town is greatly pestered both with horses and men; which may increase the infection here, "already somewhat assuaged." Divers of the horsemen declare that their wages ended on Friday last, and make moan for money. If any great number of the army should be transported from hence, great provision of ships must be made; and we can hear of no ships of war meet to waft this company.

ii. [The Council of Calais] to Sir Edward Bray.
The King learning that a great number of Frenchmen had arrived about Heddyng, and their vanguard already past the river, has (by letters of his Council, received since dinner) willed us to signify to you that you should send abroad espials, remove the forage and other things at Liques into the strength of Guysnes, and retire as you see reason. By the said letters (which we would send you but have sent to Hampnes and Guysnes) it seems that the King thinks you are at Liques. Whether any English garrison is there we know not. Doubtless you will keep good watch in the East pale.

R.O.This day an English merchant came to tell him that another English merchant spoke today with a Frenchman who came hither yesternight out of France, and who said that the Dalphyn, with a great army of Italians, Gascons and Frenchmen, drew towards Montrell to raise the siege. Writes this because it agrees with the former rumor here, although it may be untrue. Paid all the money they had to Mr. Damesell; and have very little remaining, which Dymock and Thomas Lock will bring. We have much ado for our bills for the money "credited us." Andwerp, 28 Sept.

Send also a letter from the bailiffs and inhabitants of Yarmothe declaring the annoyance done to fishermen by certain Scottish and French ships of war. Now is the time of the taking of herrings, and they offer to contribute towards the charges. Enclose a bill of the names and portage of the ships and crayers now appointed to pass from London. A boy waiting upon one of the maidens has "picked certain pieces of goldsmith's work from his mistress." As he is very repentant, in consideration of his youth and that "the fact is but hardly construed felony," the writers beg that the King may be moved to extend his pardon to him. He having in the meantime no hope of life, it will be as much a terror to others as if he suffered. Await the truth of the "strange advertisements" last sent. Eltham, 28 Sept. Signed by Canterbury, Wriothesley, Westminster and Petre.

28 Sept.326. Edmond Harvel to Henry VIII.
R.O.Wrote on the 15th inst. by the Venetian secretary sent by this Signory. While daily expecting Henry's obtaining of Bolaine and Mounstrel, reduced to the last extremity, sudden news came of the peace concluded between Henry, the Emperor and the French king, which he hopes will be to the common wealth of Chistendom and confusion of the Turk. Letters from Constantinople report that the Turk makes great preparations of war against next year, but this peace and union will constrain him to think upon his own defence. Polin, the French ambassador, required the Turk's galleys to serve the French king again next summer, but the Turk refused, saying that he would occupy them for presidy of his countries. Barbarossa was lately at Lepanto in Peloponeso with 60 galleys and foists "newly redressed." Venice, 28 Sept. 1544.
P.S.— Hears that Henry has overcome Bolaine by battle, which was esteemed "the chief hope and propugnacle of all France," and thanks God, who has granted "so fortunable success this same year as well in Scotland as in France." The Frenchmen here divulge "that if your Majesty recuse to rendre Bolaine they will use their might against the same with th' Emperor's favour and consent, which to me seemeth too much incredible of th'Emperor's part." The Bishop is in great fear of the Emperor, who has written in choler "for th'ofensions recayvid of the Bushop moche grevous."

Have seen his letters of the 27th inst., with the requests of the laird of Buckleugh, and think that he has well resolved to grant no assurance; for it is but a practice to save their corn this harvest, to the wasting of which and further annoyance of the enemies the wardens should have good respect.

Send herewith, to be signified to the King, letters and advertisements received this day out of the North and "from the earl of Lynoux, Sir Rice Maunswell, Wynter and others of that company, being now landed at Bristoll." As it appears that they had discharged a great part of their men before the receipt of our letters advertising them of the King's pleasure touching their further proceedings, as signified by your letters of the 26th inst., we have eftsoons written to Winter that, as we marvel that (after writing that he would remain at Beaumarres to annoy enemies coming from the Newfoundland and others) he has so suddenly both come from thence and discharged his men, so, if his men are indeed discharged, he, taking order for the sale of the victuals and custody of the ordnance and of such of the prize wines as shall be meet for the King, shall repair hither with his books of accompt; but, if his men are not discharged, he shall employ himself as signified in our former letters.
Where Lord Eure writes that he and others have been unpaid for a year ended 16 August last, and we have not since the King left heard anything of it, we have written to my lord Lieutenant for a declaration thereof; that order may be taken therein as the King shall command.

This is mainly to cover the packet of the Duke of Arburquerque herewith, but, having hand to pen, it seems right to advise that this after dinner the King embarked, and on the road reminded us partly of what he sent Secretary Paget to say, as contained in last letters from the Sieur de Courrieres and me to his Majesty, and especially touching the desreputation that there would be in our withdrawing without the arrival of successors. And, for this cause, he accepted our offer and prayed that, in pursuance thereof, we would abide in this place with the dukes of Norfolk and Suffolk, Admiral, Treasurer, bp. of Winchester and certain others of his Council until the said successor should come. He took few men with him and told us that he was leaving a sufficient number to keep camp. He has shown not the very least resentment of the peace, even though he has mentioned it three or four times, and has gone away quite buoyant (dispos) and joyful, determined not to lose this town.
Is sure that Granvelle will have compassion upon him (Chapuys) and get him out of this purgatory. The camp from Monstreul is returned here safe. Mons. de Buren with his band left it at Chasteau Neuf without coming hither. The King gave us to understand that he would have liked to see him, and, with many praises, prayed us to thank him for the virtuous and notable office he had done; and to intimate it to the Emperor with all possible recommendations. Boulogne, 30 Sept. 1544.

[An account of the Emperor's proceedings after his capture of St. Disier.]
* * * * (f. 13.) The King of England took Boulogne and was besieging (estava sobre) Montrull. The Emperor gave him notice of the peace which was being treated with the King of France twelve days before it was concluded, as had been capitulated between them. The army of the King of France has gone towards that of England to give it battle. There is news that the Englishman has withdrawn and that he left Boulogne well fortified. However, it is believed that there will be peace between them also and that the Emperor will take it in hand.
