Calendar,
VIII. No. 47.
Two days ago received hers of the 20th. Of the English commissioners for the joint arbitration at Gravelines the Emperor is already informed; but Paget told the writers' man this morning that the Council were about to move for the nomination of Dr. Carne, ambassador with her, in place of the Court Master or Vaughan, and that the meeting might be postponed to 8 May but not longer. Nothing has been said about the stay of the Scottish ambassador in Flanders. Will, as instructed, endeavour to draw the English on the subject. Mentioned her information about the despatch from here of the Duchess d'Etampes' secretary. Paget replied that an Italian recently sent to the French Court for an exchange of prisoners was questioned about the possibility of the King's surrendering Boulogne; and Madame d'Etampes thereupon despatched a gentleman to Lord Poyns, governor of Boulogne. The King, however, had instructed Poyns that such a surrender was on no account to be discussed, and nothing more had been heard of it. If anyone had come from France on such an errand the writers must have known; but the only person who has come from France for a long time is a yokel who calls himself a gentleman and says he was M. d'Enghien's servant and fled because of illtreatment. It will be hard to persuade the King to surrender Boulogne. The capture of 60 French vessels, mentioned by the English ambassador, was reported from several quarters, and they wrote of it to Secretary Bave; but now it appears that the capture was only of 9 or 10 small boats off the Brittany coast. The English however descended upon an island there called Belle Isle which they first ransomed for 1,500 or 2,000 cr., paid by the inhabitants, and then sacked. All they have brought home is a little wheat and some chattels. Can hardly speak of the alleged arrest of Zeelanders until the parties complain to the Council. As to the Spanish ships, the Council have taken steps to secure the ship and merchandise captured by Renegat, and will make restitution if Renegat's ships arrested in Spain are released. The Council also promise to enquire into the document in Spanish.
The King recently sent the Earl of Arundel and other gentlemen to provide for defence of the West coasts, and has made three large musters of ships and men for Scotland, whither he is sending all his Spaniards and Italians. Hertford is to command; and the writers think that it is intended "to restore (rebuild?) a castle (fn. 1) which they demolished last year, standing near the sea in the middle of a river." Last year they did not fortify it because of their haste to accompany the King to Boulogne, and for lack of materials. She will have learnt that the Marquis de Palavicini has arrived here with a good company of men. He seems disappointed in the promises held out to him of commanding all the King's Italians; and he even seems to be looked upon with suspicion. London, 26 April 1545.
P.S.—Paget has just sent word that Winchester and he will visit us tomorrow.
26 April.578. Otwell Johnson to John Johnson.
R. O.London, 26 April 1545:—By your letter and this bearer I perceived the cause of your "retardement," and, today, at Pawelles made your excuse to Mr. Brudenell, who has appointed me to meet him at Lynncolnes Inn, at Mr. Edward Gryffyn's. chamber, at 3 p.m. this afternoon. Make the more speed hither if you intend to find Mr. Brudenell here; for by Tuesday night he will depart either to Calleis or home, and before his departing your matter shall be ended, Nicholas Walker (and, I think, your parson) being here for that purpose. Mr. Serjeant Sanders is not here this term but sick at Sebertofte. Nor is Mr. Bretain here. I intend to use Mr. Broke's counsel, and travailed yesterday to come to his speech, but he will have no time to hear the matter until this evening, after which I will instruct Mr. Brikenell perfectly. All the allegations noted in your letter shall be remembered
Wool sales and money matters. The plague at Calleis does not diminish. Here is no news "but of preparing into Scotland with an honest strength. Both the Emperor and French king sleep, I think. The Lord awake them to conclude a general peace."

Shrewsbury having appointed him, amongst other gentlemen, to lead 3,000 men harnessed for war into the North parts, signifies that the King has given him the office of sheriff of this shire during pleasure, and he is also commissioned by the Commissioners in the marches of Wales to cause the country to make bulwarks and beacons all along the sea coasts, for defence, "being all naked and without any manner artillery or ordnance for that purpose," and to warn the country to repulse any landing of the enemy; and begs that he and his company may tarry at home for these and other the King's affairs, with which, as common officer of this shire, he is charged, as bearer can declare. Northwiche, 26 April.
P. 1. Add.: lieutenant general in the North parts.
26 April.580. Shrewsbury, Tunstall and Sadler to Henry VIII.
R. O.To learn the state of Carlisle, have sent for and conferred with Lord Wharton, captain of the town, Sir John Lowther, captain of the castle, and Edward Aglionby, captain of the citadel; and find all things far out of order. There are no statutes for the order of castle, town or citadel. The captain of the castle says that he is allowed 100 mks. fee and wages of 20 horsemen at 6l. 13s. 4d. each by year, but for no gunners or other soldiers; whereas soldiers and gunners seem meeter than horsemen for the defence of a fortress. In the town and castle is convenient furniture of ordnance, partly unmounted and not ready, but no shot and powder to speak of, and only one gunner to serve in town, castle and citadel; and not sufficient bows, arrows, bills, demihakes and such weapons, nor any convenient proportion of victuals. Also there is no mill within the castle, and not water enough for the captain's ordinary household. The captain of the citadel has 2s. a day for himself, 8d. for a porter and 6d each for six gunners and eight soldiers, but says that since the citadel was made, he could never get a gunner and has therefore taken no allowance for them; nor could he get any ordnance although he has often made suit for it. The citadel remains without ordnance, artillery, victual or munition. The town is not tenable against any great power; and many things in it are out of order for want of good statutes for the governance of the retinue and inhabitants.
For remedy the writers have (1) ordered the repair of the ramparts and "vammewres" of the castle and citadel, which will be no great matter; (2) charged the captains to furnish themselves with victuals for three months; and (3) apportioned the ordnance at the castle to the castle, town and citadel, ordering the said captains and the clerk of the ordnance at Carlisle to set men to stock and mount such as is not ready. Cannot however furnish shot, powder or weapon without disfurnishing other places, and therefore desire the King to send some together with gunners, forty of whom will be few enough for the castle, town and citadel. Send herewith a book of the ordnance, shot, powder and munition at Carlisle. For the repairs there is lack of lead, which they beg that the Chancellor of the Augmentations may be caused to send from the late monastery of Shapp in Westmoreland, which is not far from Carlisle. Darneton, 26 April 1545.
P.S.—Enclose letters received from Thomas Gowre and Archane, being at Barwycke. Signed.

26 April.582. Sadler to Wriothesley.
R. O.The great disorder and disfurniture in the King's frontier fortresses here enforces him to write; since, if the Frenchmen and Scots join forces, they will likely be doing with some of them. They lack chiefly good captains. Lord Evre, captain of the town, and Sir Cuthbert Ratclif, captain of the castle of Berwyke, are " men of honesty and meet to serve elsewhere, " but of no experience or knowledge for keeping a fortress. John Karr, captain of Warke, " is surely a good Borderer and very active man, and expert in these frontier wars," but not of experience or knowledge of feats pertaining to the assault or defence of a fortress, as himself confessed to Sadler. Sir John Lowther, captain of Carlisle castle, is lame and impotent, and as unmeet as the rest. Nothing can better declare their insufficiency than the disfurniture of their fortresses, which have been kept more like gentlemen's houses. If there be likelihood of siege being laid to any of the fortresses it is more than necessary to send down men of activity and experience to defend them, or at least as coadjutors to the captains. Writes this not for any malice to the captains, whom he knows to be honest and good gentlemen, but for the King's service. Darneton, 26 April.

27 April.584. The Privy Council to Cheyney.
R. O.Mr. Treasurer, the King is advertised from the seas that the Frenchmen are already abroad with galleys and other ships, minding some exploit upon the coast about the Narrow Seas, and therefore thinks it necessary that some notable personage were resident at Dover for the assembling of his subjects. He reputes you "a man most meetest for that purpose;" but, like a good master, seeing you so " unquieted with that naughty whoreson ague," requires you to regard the recovery of your health, so as to "be able to serve again many years longer," and therefore sends bearer, Sir Thomas Seymour, to take your advice therein and obtain your commandment to all your officers at Dover and elsewhere within your office of wardenry to be at his rule and order in your absence. His Majesty doubts not but, were it not for sickness, you would gladly be there, " and all we be sorry that you cannot." Pray despatch bearer with all diligence. St. James, 27 April 1545.

Spanish
Calendar,
viii. No. 48.
Kept their letter written yesterday for this packet. Winchester and Paget said their King meant to observe fully the agreement, but certain points, such as the two claims in the Spanish statement, would take time to verify. They excused Renegat by the seizure of some of his ships in Spain, but said that they had sequestrated his property and summoned him hither, together with another captain who recently seized Spanish ships and compelled the masters to say that the cargoes were French. The King was so annoyed that he would recall all privateers.
Winchester and Paget then asked if there was no news of the proposed truce. Said that the King of France had not yet answered the Emperor, and some thought the delay due to the sending of the Duchess d'Etampes' man to Boulogne. Paget gave fuller details of the French intrigues, and then said that the King was astonished that no reply had been sent. Were importuned to tell their opinion of a truce; and finally said that the French were not likely to consent to a truce, since they did not fear invasion and the King of England was put to the expense of holding Boulogne, nor were the French likely to leave Boulogne in suspense until the pensions were paid. Winchester and Paget seemed to think it would be no small favour to defer the pensions till after the truce expired. Could not get them to say how far the King was disposed to give way. On the contrary they talked of his great preparations against Scotland and their contempt for the King of France, even if he sent 30,000 or 40,000 men hither. Reminded them only that peace was always welcome and Boulogne was likely to cost much; they seemed to adhere too closely to their conditions proposed to Card, du Bellay. Paget replied that he had spoken to the Emperor to adopt these conditions or such others as he could arrange. In addition to Dr. Carne, the bp. of Westminster, who is of the Privy Council, will take part in the Gravelines conference. No more was said of sending Vaughan or the Court Master.

Robert Scootte, of Norham, this bearer, has required " to have oon Robert Cokeborne weh is presonore to the said Robert Scotte for to feathe the said Robert Scot as in exchange the one for thother." Thinks it good that a man who has a prisoner should "feathe himself." This Robert Cokeborne "is a gentleman and a younger brother, being but of small ability and estimation;" and the writer therefore advisee the exchange. Barwyke, 27 April 1545.

R. 0.
St. P., x. 404.
On the 18th received their letter of the 2nd directed to Paget and him for obtaining a passport for 5,000 haquebutes provided by Chr. de Charchano in Mylan. Spoke to President Schore, who, having moved the Emperor therein, says that Paget, when here, required passport for 4,000 haquebutes, and that the Emperor thinks this request to be for the same. Answered that he knew that Paget required a passport, but neither the number asked nor the number granted, and this was assuredly for other haquebutes provided in Italy. The President said that the Emperor thought it a great number to ask first 4,000 and now 5,000, and would know how many Paget asked and obtained, which Mr. Chambreleyn could tell. Has sent him a remembrance that 4,000 were asked and 2,000 granted, as Mr. Damsell, the King's servant, says. On the 20th received their letter with the names of the persons appointed to the Diet, and declared to Schore when they should be at the place; who answered (as Wotton has written to Paget) that the Emperor's commissioners could not be there before 8 May, and that the Emperor had instructed his ambassadors to declare this to the King. Schore said that sone of their ambassadors should be at it, and now says that it shall be Chappuis, at his coming from the King. Hears that Dr. Hermes shall be another, a learned man, " of the Privy Council, as they call it here, but not as we call it, for that that we call the Privy Council they call (as I take it) le Conseill d'Estat."
The Duke of Orleans arrived here on Friday, 24th inst., and was received solemnly with torches (although it was but 4 p.m.) and a peal of guns. Moret, the ambassador, is not yet come, but Menaige, who was joined with him, remains here. The President aftirms that the Emperor will depart for Germany within four or five days.
This day, sitting at dinner with Mr. Carne, my lady, Mr. Governor and other, one came to speak with Dr. Martyn, the Duke of Suffolk's physician, who went out and shortly returned with a letter to Wotton, which proved to be written by John Petwell. The man who brought it was already gone, but Dr. Martyn said that he was a servant of one Poumberge, brother to the ambassador Dilphus's mother, who would speak in Petwell's favour. As the Council wrote to him in favour of Mr. Forman against Petwell, who is said to be " retaining to Poole," he sends them the letter. Never saw or knew Petwell. Poumberge says that he is at Basile in Germany. Dr. Martyn desires it kept secret that Poumberge sends now into England to the ambassador Dilphus for certain books concerning the matter between Mr. Forman and Petwell which show "deceit" committed to the King's prejudice.

R. O.
St P., x. 401.
Has been again in hand with the President for the Scottish ambassador, and is told that his tarrying here is only until the French ambassador may have answer from his master. Pointed out that thus the Scottish ambassador might tarry here as long as the French king would; but the President answered that he must depart when the Emperor goes hence, very shortly, for he said he had no commission to follow the Emperor into Germany. These words sounded as though there had been communication of his going into Germany; and, although the President affirmed that neither should he tarry here with the Queen, Wotton still suspects his tarrying here to be for some other purpose than the President alleges. The President said that the Emperor had no answer from the French king concerning the truces, and that the cause seemed to be that the King is himself in communication with the Frenchmen. Wotton said that such communication was reported both in this Court and the French Court, but he had no advertisement of it out of England as he should have had if it were true. " Why! (quod the President) it is well known that Madame Destampes' secretary is in-England, and for no truces but for a peace, and his request is to have Boleyn ' rasidde' and so doing the French king will be content to pay the pension and to agree for the arrearages." Wotton answered that that was news to him, and he thought such a communication bound to fail. The President said that he was sure the King would never forego Boleyn, and that the French king must seek peace for lack of money, for which cause he had countermanded his ships retained in Italy; and that the French king knew not yet what it cost to maintain a navy, " and that out of doubt he intended to do at Boleyn this year, for he might well perceive that he were able to do no good in it."
The ambassador of Venice has still advertisement from Andrinopoli, dated 5 March, that the Turks army by land is ready to ride, and his army by sea shall be ready " by all" April. The Duke of Orleans came hither on Friday last. (fn. 3) By the way lodging was demanded for 800 horses, but 300 would be more than enough for " all his horses, mules, mulettes and asses." Having saluted the Emperor from his father he searched in his pocket and blushing said " Foy de gentilhomme, Sire, j'ay perdu nies lettres." The President says that he goes hence back to France. Seeing the arms of Mylan joined with those of Orleans upon his mulettes, Wotton thought him rather hasty therein, but is told that ever since he was Duke of Orleans he has given them. The President seems to believe that we shall agree with the Frenchmen; and this may be cause of their detaining the Scottish ambassador here. When Wotton named the Governor among those appointed to be at the Diet the President said that, as there would be complaints of the false dealing of merchants, the Governor might be pricked to impatience, and, unless the commissioners on both sides were men free from affections, this Diet could not produce the fruit that is looked for. Encloses a letter from Ytelwolphe, received from Bastyen, who prays for an early answer to it. The ambassador of Genua says that the bp. of Raguse is come to Rome and certifies the Bishop of Rome that the Turk comes not to Hungary this year, but is still at Adrinopoli. Encloses letters brought out of France from Mr. Wyngefeld, prisoner there. Andwerpe, 27 April 1545. Signed.
P.S.—Certain merchants of Lysle complain that a ship laden with their wine and other merchandise is taken in England since Easter and brought into Plummouth, as appears by the bill herewith. Rather than complain to the Emperor they send one Rousee into England to solicit their matter, and as our merchants commend them for honest men, Wotton desires help for them. The bringer of Ytelwolphe's letter had a copy of it which Bastian has turned into French (also sent herewith).

On the 24th inst. arrived here the Duke of Orleans and was received with more honor than the Emperor himself, as regards torches, shot and banners. All the nobles of the Court met him half a league out, with all the Italians and Spaniards. His own train is bruited to be great because the harbingers appoint lodging for 800; but Carne thinks them no more than 300 and " verye homblye horsede." In reply to a question of the town council of Machlen, the Emperor answered that they should receive the Duke as they would himself. The French king will shortly to Normandy to see his army furnished for the sea. The Emperor departs within 3 or 4 days towards Germany and the Lady Regent to Bruxells. She banqueted the Duke of Orleans on Saturday night, who returns from hence to France and goes no further with the Emperor. Some say that his coming is to thank the Emperor for the " declaration of the Duchy of Myllayne for him." The Turk has his army by land ready and will have that by sea ready " by all this present April." Andwarp, 27 April.
P.S. in his own hand.—"The Scottish ambassador is here yet. Mons. du Orleans beareth the arms of Myllayn already quartered with the arms of France." Signed.

27 April.590. Chamberlain to Paget.
R. OBy Francis the post I wrote Gasper Dutche's answer touching the 1,000l. st. you willed me to require of him; and also sent 49l. 17s. 4d. st. in groats for the 200 cR. Of the sun you left with me. Moreover I wrote how this town began to evil entreat our merchants, taking their cloaks off their backs and breaking open their packhouses to distrain for a new impost, called the 20th penny, upon house rents; wherein I used such means that the lords of the town have returned me the pledges taken and caused their Serjeants to ask my forgiveness, sending three substantial burgesses to excuse the lewd behaviour of their officers and ask for a written statement of what has been taken from this company and of any other injuries contrary to our privileges. At the Emperor's departing hence they promise to make satisfaction and prove that they esteem our traffic. I wot not whether these "gentle motions," unusual for eight or ten years past, indicate zeal to make amends or desire to know grievances beforehand in order to be "readier to defend us at the Diet," in preparation for which those here, both shippers and merchants, assemble twice a day; or whether they are because I made the Company to remove their unsold goods to Barghes and not resort hither during this mart, as if to withdraw our traffic from hence (as the Margrave said he heard that we intended, to whom I answered that "such occasions" might compel us). So that now, if these merchants would observe the ordinances heretofore made for the general weal of this Fellowship, I would yet trust to see this Company in good estimation, and make the folk of this town know themselves; and to that end, please move the King or Council to write me a sharp letter, like this other here enclosed, whereby I may the better keep them in obedience, "praying you to let none of the merchants there know hereof."
Encloses two letters received by one of the Company out of Spain by post, showing how our merchants and their goods to the value of 26,000 ducats are stayed by the Prince of Spain. Sent them to Mr. Wutton, to Machelin, thinking that he might labour to the Emperor therein, " but now he is come hither and willed me to send them unto you." The Duke of Orleans came into this town on Friday afternoon, met by the Duke of Askot and other nobles of this country, and by the Spaniards who follow the Court, and received with torches and a great peal of gunshot. He brought in his train not past 50 horses, " besides carriage mulettes and carts," in very evil order. How long the Emperor and he tarry here is not yet known. The Scottish ambassador is yet lodged in an inn among the wagonners and comes little abroad. A Scottish priest told me that he tarries the answer of one whom the Emperor sent into Scotland 15 days past, who took shipping in a fisher boat at Flushing. The Frenchman of whom I showed you at Bruxelles, sent thither to me by one of our merchants, has since been in France and departed from Eoan eight days past, where he says were 4 galleys and a carrack ready for sea and a report from Brittaigne that 40 sail were ready at Brest, and that, with other ships to the number of 300 sail, they should carry 10,000 Italians and 5,000 Bretons into Scotland, while Mons. de Vandome should lead an army into Pickerdie. The letters you sent for the Bastard of Guelder I despatched on Tuesday last. These other letters I received yesterday from Muxica and Taphorne.

The King is informed that, during the arrest there, many of your Company of this city, while the King's ambassadors were there soliciting redress of the same, were so bold as to ship goods from hence in strangers' names, paying their strangers' customs; thus doing their utmost to lose the privileges which the King's progenitors and he purchased for them, and to make void the labour of his ambassadors for their release. From henceforth the King commands you to look straitlier to your office and to the observation of the ordinances " established by such men of wisdom, your predecessors, as we now would wish to be there among you "; and both to exact the penalties for transgression thereof and account to his Majesty for his moiety of the same, according to the intent of the privileges which he has granted your Fellowship.

R. O.The King takes well your Lordship's sundry letters, and, in part answer, "hath given us charge which tomorrow shall be signified unto you." As the fortification for defence of the haven at Tynemowth is now ready to receive a good number of men, and the enemies, who are in some force upon the Narrow Seas, knowing that it has no garrison, might endeavour to surprise it ("which should be a thing not only dishonorable but also a great strength for them and a marvellous annoysance to his Majesty"), this is to require you to send some "meet personage" (fn. 5) with 200 or 300 men for its safeguard; for, as the baron of Hilton has "been much traded in the wars in those parts," the King is loth to have him shut up in such a time of service, but means to employ him otherwise, to his contentation, as Shrewsbury is to declare to him. All necessaries for the furniture of the place must be sent thither. St. James's, 28 April 1545.

R. O.
St. P., x. 408.
Having " this day " received from the Emperor's ambassadors certain doleances with two articles added in the name of the Lady Regent, copies enclosed, think it well to signify the answer made thereto by the bp. of Winchester and Secretary " who yesterday were sent to them for that purpose," viz.:—
That the King and Council are sorry that anything should be done on the sea or elsewhere contrary to the amity; and, since Paget's coming home, sundry captains have been, in presence of the ambassadors' ministers, committed to ward, and the admirals are commanded, upon complaint of any ill treatment of the Emperor's subjects, to satisfy the parties and send up the misdoers. Mary! if any prize be taken which appears to be French, they must give us leave not suddenly to deliver it without respect of justice to our own subjects; for instance a prize taken two months past by men of Rye, named le Saynt Esprit,a French ship laden in Roan for Portyngall and bound to return to Roan, whose cockets, charter party and safeconduct were all for Frenchmen, " they" were not ashamed to challenge as Spanish goods. Touching the first article, we never heard of the matter before, but will punish those complained of and satisfy the parties; and likewise, as to the second article, if the offenders be discovered. Reneger states his case thus. Having taken a French ship on the coast of Spain wherein were divers Spaniards goods, he sent for the owners to claim them, and so delivered what could lawfully be required, until one claimed certain feathers which clearly pertained to Frenchmen, and upon denial stayed a ship of Reneger's which was there lading, and summoned Reneger himself to come to land. Fearing then to be arrested, as there was a general stay of English merchants in Flanders and letters sent to Spain to do the like there, he sailed away. Meeting a Spanish ship which professed to carry only sugar and other merchandise, but wherein he found certain gold, silver and pearls, he told them how his ship was unjustly detained in Spain and that they must pardon him if he retained such parcels of their goods as amounted to its value; and he gave them a bill of his hand, wherein they prayed him earnestly not to mention the gold, &c, or it would be forfeited for lack of manifestation thereof to the Emperor's officers. At his coming home he was straightway commanded to put all the goods in safe keeping, and is now departed for that purpose. Touching the first of the Queen's articles, upon particular declaration of the matter, order shall be taken; and so with the Zealanders' complaint, which we never heard of before and which the ambassadors themselves thought unreasonable.
This was the effect of our discourse; in the end whereof we said that the King marvelled to hear nothing out of Flanders of the overture for peace or truce made when I, the secretary, was there. They answered that they heard nothing thereof, save that the Regent marvelled that she had no word of it, and she thought the reason might be a practice reported to be begun at Bullen. We then declared how one Hippolito, prisoner at Bullen, desired to repair into France to obtain the exchange of Sir Ric. Wingfield for him, and, being in the French Court, was told by Mons. de Longuevale that if there was likelihood of the King's inclining to peace he would be a doer therein, and Madame Destampes would help. Failing to compass his suit, Hippolito returned and told the above to Lord Poyninges, who certified some of the King's Council thereof and had answer that, for the quiet of Christendom, the King would always hearken to an honorable peace: "upon which answer a secretary of Madame Destampes resorted unto Bullen and, at his coming, requiring for one of the conditions the giving up of Bullen, was incontinently dismissed." As the thing was openly done and was a mere practice, we never communicated it, for the King, having entered with the Emperor in this matter, looks to him for the success of it.
The King marvels to hear nothing from the Bastard of Gueldres touching the 2,000 men of war for whom he bound himself when here, or the 1,000 more for whom his Highness afterwards wrote, or the 1,000 mariners whom he was also to provide; and his Majesty requires you to send an express messenger to bring word from him therein and learn occurrents.
In respect of the Regent's letters, and to gratify the Emperor, the King will repay the money disbursed by Mons. de Liege, and has taken order for its payment in Antwerp. The King accepts the request of President Scoyre for the deferring of the Diet, and has appointed my lord of Westminster, Mr. Secretary Peter, "you Mr. Kerne," Mr. Vaughan and Mr. Chambrelayn, thus altering somewhat the first appointment.

Upon the representations made to the Emperor by the ambassador of Scotland, on behalf of the Governor and Council there, his Majesty has advised that, for reasons declared to the ambassador, he cannot at present renew the ancient alliances between the House of Burgundy and the Kings of Scotland nor give the declaration of comprehension which the ambassador has required; but, to show his sincere affection, he would desire the Scots to accord with England (not that his Majesty intends in any manner to invade the realm of Scotland or its subjects); and, to provide for the indemnity of subjects of both sides, he consents that merchants of Scotland who shall have letters of safeconduct under the great seal of his Low Countries may freely trade there, provided that his subjects having the Governor's safeconduct may as freely trade in Scotland. And it is accorded that, at sea, merchants and subjects of the Low Countries having letters of attestation from the Queen of Hungary shall not be molested by the men of war or subjects of Scotland, and in case of attempts to the contrary sincere restitution shall be made. But the subjects of either side having such letters of attestation shall not enter the ports of the other unless for stress of weather, and even then shall not land anything without licence from the officer of the port and shall leave with the first favourable wind. Subjects who have the safeconducts above mentioned may sue for things wrongly taken from them before the declaration of war, save that those of Scotland shall not claim what was employed to recompense the English for the ship taken at La Vere; but they may take action for the surplus.

Our brother has had promise from the same master of Signor Hypolito of conditions equal to those of any other, and when the time comes will be one of the first despatched; he wishes to go to this enterprise if any go at all. I gave Sr Hypolito a letter for you, and am surprised that you have not received it. By it I advised you on no account to let yourself be enticed away from your present service.

The Queen Regent and Duke of Orleans follow him only to Liere, 2 miles from Andwerpe. After long solicitation for passport of 5000 hacquebutes provided by Chr. de Charchano, the President answered that the Emperor had granted so many that he would grant no more, telling Wotton's servant that he could only answer as the Emperor commanded him. Twice or thrice before he had said on coining from the Emperor that he had forgotten it. In riding by the way Wotton overtook him and pointed out that this answer was not "convenable betwixt two such friends" as their masters, especially as the hacquebutes were not going out of this country but coming from Italy; and got him to promise that if Mr. Carne renewed the matter he would do what he might therein. Thinks that if only a part of the number may be obtained it should be accepted, for "the solicitor of the matter saith that he hath nothing so many hacquebutes as is required."

The Scottish herald waited diligently these two or three days at the President's house, and this day received a letter of the President. Cannot perceive that he intends to follow the Emperor and, if the President be a true man, he shall not tarry here. Men begin to whisper that, if the Turk come not into Hungary, the Emperor will go from Wormes to Trent, to the General Council. If that prove true, cannot tell what to think of it. The King of Romans' ambassador, Hieronymo Adorno, was arrived at Andrinopoli before the date of last letters from thence, but had as yet only saluted two of the bashas.

By letters from the Council, Shrewsbury perceives that he is to appoint some meet personage, with 200 or 300 men, to garrison the new fortifications at Tynmouth. A thousand or more workmen are now there, whereof may be picked 400 tall men; and therefore harness and weapons shall be sent thither for a good number, who may defend the fortress if necessary and yet put the King to no further charge than their present wages as workmen. Have ordered John Norton of Clydderowe, a hardy gentleman and experienced in war, to reside at Tynmouth and join with John Brende, overseer of the works there, as captains of the said workmen; and have also appointed Hugh Boyfelde, master of the ordnance in these parts, to send thither from Newcastle a cannon, a saker, 2 falcons and 2 slings. The country thereabouts shall be ready to repair to its defence. Took this order to avoid further charge, and because victuals sufficient for the workmen already there can hardly be got.
Shrewsbury has presently received the King's letters of the 24th inst., showing that he is chosen one of the companions of the Order of the Garter, and is to repair to the King. Gives humble thanks. Having, however, no instructions how Shrewsbury's office is to be supplied in his absence, nor what the Bp. of Durham and Sadler shall do meanwhile, Shrewsbury stays his journey until he may know the King's further pleasure, sending his folks forward and intending to follow in post.
Finally, where the Council write that Shrewsbury shall send the necessary furniture to the fortifications of Tynmouth ; they want here almost all such necessaries, especially ordnance, shot, powder and gunners, and cannot send more than, as above, they have already ordered to be conveyed from Newcastle, except it be two or three falcons which be at Newcastle.

This breach is most agreeable to the King, her uncle, who for three years has not ceased, as if it were a pious duty, with the direst war to procure (conciliare) her quiet in her cradle. He has stirred up several Scottish noblemen to molest her by land and sea, and is now trying to stir up the men of the Isles. But his double violation of the league, made first with her father and afterwards renewed with her, will with God's help be avenged by a war already waged in part and which will still be prosecuted.

They will raise 3,000,000 francs for the war, and Captain Paulin has already received 60,000 with which to fit out ships and galleys at Marseilles. Vessels are also being raised in Brittany and at Rochelle, but unfortunately the English lately captured 50 or 60 ships and quite recently took 17 more, and, having 80 or 100 armed ships, are much the stronger at sea. The French army for Scotland may find its passage between Dover, Boulogne and Calais disputed. The 4,000 men in Boulogne burn the country as far as Montreuil and Ardres; and the King of England recently constructed a new bastion dominating the harbour of Boulogne, which is well provisioned. The English recently captured a castle in the Boulonnois and tried to stop the constructing of a bulwark which, by advice of a Venetian, the French are making beside Boulogne harbour, and for which they have already 6,000 footmen and many horsemen in the field. But the French are really seeking, through the Emperor, to obtain a truce—to the indignation of the Dauphin—that they may press for fulfilment of the treaty of peace (of Crêpy). There is great distress in the country. Vendome recently revictualled Ardres and Therouanne. The nobles of Scotland side with the English but the people favour the French and the Queen. The King of England goes so far as to propose a marriage between his son and the princess of Scots, "the prince to be held by the Scots as a pledge"; but it is not believed that he will ever give up his son. Conference at Melun, begun six weeks ago, of twelve wise men who will subsequently attend the General Council. French proposal to marry the Prince of Piedmont with Madame Margaret. The King and Queen of Navarre are again at this Court pressing for the Prince's marriage with their daughter; in which case Madame Margaret may marry the eldest son of the King of the Romans. The Emperor summons the Prince of Piedmont to his side. Count William of Furstenburg is put to ransom for 30,000 cr., and the Emperor fixes the same ransom for the Prince of Roche sur Yonne. Forty-five warrants were recently issued to as many captains to have each 500 men ready for war with England. Captain Guzman, who has long been offering 2,000 Spaniards against the English, either from Hungary or of those going home from Flanders by sea, has his offer accepted and is gone to raise Spaniards. The French complain that Spaniards going home by sea are retained in England, presumably with the Emperor's consent. The Emperor (qu. Pope?) will furnish the King with 25,000 cr. a month or else Italian infantry to that value, under the command of the Pope's nephew, who is now in the Court of France. Challenge issued by the Counts of Brienne and Roussy against any who deny that they did their duty at Ligny. The King sent a gentleman of Avignon to inform the Turk that his peace with the Emperor was not a peace but a truce which the presence of two powerful armies compelled him to grant, and that Barbarossa's recall helped his enemies; but the Turk has imprisoned his ambassador and granted letters of reprisal. The Turk recently left Constantinople for Adrianople with ceremonies which indicate that he will this year go against Vienna. But he must first subdue Komorn which the King of Hungary has garrisoned. Orleans is preparing to go to the Emperor at Worms when the King recovers. The Admiral and other captains were studying charts and planning the attack on England; but the Admiral has fallen ill of gout and an abscess behind the ear. The King's illness has delayed the sending of the Spanish Jacobin friar (fn. 7) who intervened in the peace to get the Pope to move the Emperor to declare against England. If the war continues he will go. Archers were sent to arrest the captain (fn. 8) who surrendered Boulogne; but while they addressed themselves to his father in law, M. de Biez, he escaped to England. He is accused of betraying the town, and yet he defended it for nine weeks without bullets or powder against 140,000 cannon shots. The Ambassador's efforts to obtain revocation of the letters of marque against the Portuguese, granted before the war, are unavailing. The Ambassador has long been pressing for restoration of two vessels belonging to the Duke of Alburquerque seized by the French after the conclusion of peace on the ground that the Duke was then in the service of the King of England. The authentic protest made by the Princess d'Albret in accordance with the treaty of peace, does not satisfy the Duke of Cleves, who, in the Emperor's name, insists that she should make her declaration in presence of some cardinals; and to this the King has now consented. Difficulty about the surrender of Stenay to the Duke of Lorraine, because, the Emperor insisting that the fortifications should first be demolished, the French demolished the old buildings as well and the Duke refuses to receive it in its present state. Cahors, which the Emperor claims as captured after the truce of Nice, the King asserts to have been his before that truce.
As to the Cleves affair, the Empsror says that the Princess's protest before a bishop will be sufficient, and she is now summoned to this Court, from Alencon, to make it. The Emperor is making preparations in Spain and Italy against Algiers. The Count of Mirandola being in fear of the Emperor, the French king has made efforts to get him included in the peace; and six days ago the Emperor wrote to the King that a legal process must decide the Count's right to Mirandola. M. de Sedan, heir of the late Robert de la Marche, and the Queen of Scots also, beg to be included in the peace. As to Scotland the Emperor says that the damage done to his subjects by Scots must first be made good. The English some time ago arrested several ships belonging to the Emperor's subjects; whereupon all English property in the Netherlands was embargoed. Now restitution is made on both sides and a new treaty signed.
The French are putting 6,000 or 8,000 infantry and a number of horse to defend a bulwark which they are raising near Boulogne harbour. During last week it is again announced that war will recommence this year against the English, the chief commander being the Admiral, who will go to Scotland with 14,000 French infantry, 8,000 lansquenets, and a number of Swiss, and 3,000 Spaniards supplied by Captain Guzman and Captain Bartoleme del Real. The latter, a tall man with a red face, was appointed gentleman of the Chamber a fortnight ago; and ten days ago he left for Bilbao to get ships and men to join the French fleet against the English. He also promised to send men into England to learn preparations there. The Emperor will shortly summon the Prince of Piedmont to his Court, and frustrate the French plan of marrying him. The Queen of Navarre also wants him for her daughter. Those deputed to the Council have taken leave of their congregations. Rançon's nephew, who arrived last week from Constantinople, reports that the Turk prepares an expedition against Vienna this year. The King left Fontainebleau yesterday for Blois. His health is still doubtful.

626. Robert Lord Maxwell to the Council.
R. O.By the leave of Mr. Lieutenant, wrote to their lordships to intercede with the King for his pardon; and that, if received as the King's subject, he would do such service as no Scottish man in Scotland. His desire is only to go to Carllyle and lie there prisoner, where he might practise with his son and sister's son and other friends, and so make some recompense for his trespass against the King; for they will obey his command to deliver the King any castle or hold of his commodious for entry into the West Border of Scotland, and serve him. "If his Majesty do give me mine undeserved life, according to my most humble request, then am I bounden to lay my hands under his Majesty's feet and to serve his Highness whilst I have one drop of blood within my body." Can give good advice to the King's lieutenant concerning the entry into Scotland ; and, if by policy he delivers the castles within his lands, he would beg the King to give him a like living here in England. Signed: Robert Maxwell, ye Kynges Majesstye powr pressoyner in ye Towr.

R. O2. "The conffeschyon of the lord Maxffyld."
St. P., v. 428.The Queen and Council of Scotland offered Angus and his brother George, and "me, the lord Maxffyld," great offers to take their part, at and before the coming of the King's army into Scotland. To Angus they offered 1,000l. in spiritual benefices and 3,000 fr. pension of the French king. For me they would pay my ransom of 1,000 mks. and give a 1,000 mks. benefice when it fell vacant. I answered that being the King's prisoner I must go to the King." But if I go, what are you the weaker? But here my friends do tarry. Ye may command them to do such service as ye will have them, for they be under your power." This was naughtily said "and by those words worthy to suffer except the King's mercy." Does not know the answer of Angus and his brother, whom he left true men. Signed.
Also Angus desired me to send to the Queen for a safe-conduct to come sue for his brother, being prisoner in Edynborowgh castle. We obtained the safe-conduct under the seals of the Queen, Governor and Cardinal; but when we came to Glasgow under it we were committed to prison in Hamellton castle. After five weeks Angus was carried thence to Blaknes castle, to remain until we should all three suffer death. We were delivered out of prison to raise our power against the King's army at that time arrived in Scotland, which we did not. I never commanded my son to raise my men and friends against the King, but what he has done since I came away I know not. Knows not what the Council of Scotland practised, for he was mistrusted by them ever since the Governor joined the Queen and Cardinal. Begs to be reminded if he has forgotten anything, "beseeching your good lordships to be mean unto the King's Majesty for me." signed.

R. O.3. "The conffeschyon off the lord Maxvylld."
St. P. v. 429.The Governor asked me what he should do, and I said "If I were in the room of a governor, as ye be, the which is in the nonage of the young Queen protector and defender, I would not yield the realm of Scotland to no prince christened by no forcible ways." The Queen, Governor, and Council commanded me not to go forth of Scotland, and I said that honor required me to go to the King; but did not all my servants and lands remain ? What need was there for fear? Where it was said, of the imprisonment of Angwys and me, that I should consent, I will "take my death, I never thought of no prison till all the Council sent me to prison, I coming to them upon trust and their promise"; and I was taken against my will both times for the King's sake. I never consented to the imprisonment of Angwys and his brother, and I loved Angwys and never knew but that they both endeavoured to serve the King. I was delivered out of prison the first time by the Queen, without condition. As soon as I was out of prison I came to the earl of Hartford, whom I found casting down the castle of Setton and burning the country thereabouts, eight miles on his way from Edynborowghe to England, and so we came through Lodyan to the Merche. Found three of Angwys's servants there and demanded why their master had not come. They said "We have waited for him at the castle of Tentalland, thinking that we should have found him here, and what the cause was we know not."
If "your lordships" will ask anything else I will tell the truth. Signed.
