26 Sept.448. Vaughan to the Council.
R. O.The arrest of the King's money in his hands is discharged on condition that he transports no coin forged by the Emperor or his predecessors; and this day the Fowker has fully paid him all the rest of the money. The bargain was for 600,000 gilderns, which is 100,000l. Fl., whereof he has received 82,338l. 6s. 8d. Fl. in ready money. Will receive in jewels, "when the work thereof is finished, which will be within vj weeks," 12,666l. 13s. 4d. Fl., and has appointed the Fowker to pay Jasper Dowche for the herrings 5,000l.; but unless licensed to transport valued gold of the Emperor's coins, the changing of it will cost a month's labour. Hears it said that the Almayns will disappoint the King, and not go forward. It is to be feared lest the French king corrupt the captains. Goes tomorrow to Bruxelles to prove what he can do with the ambassadors for the conveyance away of the valued gold. Andwerp, 26 Sept.
Hol., pp. 2. Add. Endd.: 1545.
26 Sept.449. Vaughan to Paget.
R. O.As he signifies to the Council, has received the rest of the money from the Fowker, and is now going to Bruxelles, to the ambassadors, to look what can be done for the conveyance of valued gold. Honest men here, including Jasper Dowche, tell me that the Almains will deceive the King. Dowche learnt this at the Court, "from whence he came but lately. This day he told me that he would go into England to the King's Majesty, but he hath a wily head. I beseech you help me home, seeing all the money is received." Andwerp, 26 Sept.

R. O.
St. P., x. 598.
From this his appeal Henry will learn why he has undertaken the reformation of the Church in its present grievous state of decay, being impelled thereto not only by the Emperor's edict in the Diet of Ratisbon but by the general desire of his whole diocese and Province. Not that he has enjoined the things he has proposed, but is prepared to submit to the judgment of others, though his action has been most shamefully maligned. Begs Henry's aid and protection.

Dasent's
A.P.C., 249.
Meeting at Windsor, 27 Sept. Present: Norfolk, Privy Seal, Admiral, Winchester, Gage, Browne, Paget, Petre. Business:—Letter of thanks written to Deputy and Council of Calais to be given to such as behaved valiantly in the late entry of the French into the Pale. Letter written to Barnarde Smith, of Totneys, Mr. Troblefelde and Mr. Kelway to restore to John de Arestiqueta of St. Sebastians, in Spain, a ship named St. John. Letter of comfort to Lord Graye, lying sick at Calais. Warrant to Sir John Williams to pay Thos. Hicks 82l. disbursed by Sir Nic. Pointz for coats and conduct of 160 men.
27 Sept.453. Wriothesley to Paget.
R. O.I send herewith the state of the treasurers, "all saving Mr. Tuke who is run out of the town, as he saith, because he hath no money." Show them to the King, but keep that of the Mint to yourself, "for if it should come out that men's things coming thither be thus employed, it would make them withdraw and so bring a lack. That office hath marvellously served the King's Majesty. Mr. Wotton is gone with his 15,000l., and one is despatched Northward with 5,000l. God help us; for, for mine own part, it maketh me weary of my life." Ely Place, 27 Sept.

Upon the certainty of the dissolution of the French army, the King considers that a great part of the crew there and in the Marches may be spared, and that 1,000 in the town and castle of Guysnes, and as many besides as may furnish the bulwarks, will suffice. Intending to dispose otherwise of the rest, he requires you, by a special muster, to see how many able men there are, the above numbers deducted. This requires haste and secrecy. Certain boats were left in Calais with scaling ladders. It is to be advertised whether these ladders remain in good order, and how many there are, and both men and captains and ladders are to be ready for service. Windesore, 27 Sept. Signed by Russell, Lisle, Winchester, Gage and Paget.

"With this ye shall receive your letter sent to me by this bearer," by which you seem aggrieved that I declared to the King what Candishe showed me. I did so by his own desire, without speaking of you, "for, the King hawking for a pheasant, he desired me as he went homeward to declare the same to his Highness. This is true, and, he taken here not of the best sort; ye may be sure I do not use my doings of any sort that may turn you to any displeasure. Have yourself in await that ye animate not the King too much for the keeping of Boleyne; for who so doth at length shall get small thank. I have so handled the matter that if any adventure be given to win the new fortress at Boleyne ye shall have the charge thereof; and, therefore, look wisely what answer ye make to the letter fro us of the Council concerning the enterprises contained in them.
"Having written the premises, Mr. Paget desired me to write to you in nowise to animate the King to keep Boleyne. Upon what ground he spake it I know not, but I fear ye wrote something too much therein to somebody. And thus, with God's blessing and mine, fare ye well." Wyndsore, 27 Sept., at night.

R. O.
St P., v. 533.
Wharton has intimated Robert Maxwell's desire to send John Kenedye, his servant, to keep Loughmaban to the King's use, and that Lord Maxwell and he might speak together before Hertford to devise order for the keeping of their castles in the West Marches. Hertford has granted these desires, and both Robert Maxwell and his father will be here tonight. Send a letter and a written device for the attaining of the King's purpose in Scotland received from George Douglas. Also send a book declaring what towns, abbeys, peels and castles have been burnt and cast down in this last journey. Little thought to find so fair a country in Scotland as the Merrshe and Tyvydale.

27 Sept.457. Hertford to Henry VIII.
R. O.
St. P.. v. 529.
Has thought it his duty to devise how the charges here might be alleviated, and concludes:—
1. That the garrison of 2,600 Englishmen, which is more than were in garrison when Scotland was in most pride, now that the Scottish frontier is so devastated that the enemy cannot lay garrisons or bring any great power there, may be diminished to 1,200 Englishmen, 800 of them at least to be inland men; which would save l,400l. a month. The Italians, Albanoyes and Clevoyes cannot be placed near the frontier in winter, and therefore may be revoked; and the Irishmen also may be discharged. The Spaniards, hackebutiers, albeit Hertford wrote that they might be placed on the frontiers, yet, as the plague reigns near the Borders and the towns are so poor, they already grudge to abide there. Sees that they will not be induced to remain nearer than Newcastle, where they may be ready enough.
2. The lieutenant and treasurer here are unnecessary, as the wardens can govern the marches and refer difficulties to the King, and also report intelligence. Nevertheless, as the King has established a Council for these North parts, whereof the Abp. of York is president, and the earls of Westmoreland, Shrewsbury and Cumberland members, it might lie by turns at Newcastle, Duresme, Dernton and York and (my lord of Duresme being with them, and one of the earls ever present) both direct affairs and attend to justice. And, at need, a lieutenant can always be sent hither in 8 or 10 days. Mr. Uvedale, the under-treasurer, may attend to the payment of the garrisons. Newcastell, 27 Sept. 1545.
P.S. Has letters from the Council declaring the King's pleasure to have 1,000 of the best soldiers of Gamboa's and Muscovite's companies remain here this winter under Gamboa; and also Lightmaker's horsemen, the Albanoyes and Charles Navarroys, to continue here, and the rest of the strangers to be sent to London. The Council's letters take Lightmaker's company to be 200 horsemen, but it is only 130, and the whole company of the Almains passes not 300. Of horsemen strangers the Almains are the best, and might be placed on the Borders, "for they be men of such conformity as will be best content to take pain of all other strangers." The Albanoyes are the worst, and Hertford would wish them to go with the rest; and likewise, the company of Charles Navarroyes (himself an honest man) being Albanoyes, Italians and Burgundians, may well be spared. As to the Spanish and Italian footmen under Gamboa and Muscovite; Gamboa would be loth to break his band, who are only 1,200, and all good soldiers, and, therefore, he might remain here with the whole band of Spaniards, and let Muscovite and his Italians be discharged. Gamboa has served so honestly that he has made almost 200 horsemen, and yet charges only for footmen.
Would know whether George Lawson with his 100 hackebutiers shall remain at Warke this winter. Signed.

27 Sept.458. Wm. Hamerton to Robt. Olyver and Thos. Hillarye.
R. O.Has received their letters dated 16 Aug. and 3 Sept. (with one from Robert Olyver enclosed and another to Sir Gabriel Clement). Wrote "the effect of our affairs in Scotland" down to 19 Sept. The camp was discharged on the 23rd inst. On Sunday and Monday, the 20th and 21st, the army crossed the Tweed and rested three nights to bring victuals from Berwick, and lead from the traitorous and foolish abbey of Kelsey in Scotland, but 5 miles from Warke. Went through the Merssheland, which is very plentiful of wheat, barley and oats, for 20 miles in length and 8 or 9 in breadth, destroying houses, towers, corn, cattle, turf and fuel till nothing remains but the towers of the lairds of Langton, Fernyhurst and 2 or 3 others who are sworn English and protected by the lieutenant and council. Returned without any skirmish or alarm. Arrived at Newcastle on the 24th. Will start for London in the beginning of October and hopes to arrive before Hallowtide. The weather has been fair and their proceedings prosperous. The only loss was 3 or 4 Spaniards at the assault of Kelsey and as many English soldiers. The Lord Lieutenant has created 9 or 10 knights, Sir John Tempest and Sir Francis Hastings, both of Yorkshire, and others whose names he does not know. Asks to be recommended to his uncle, Mr. Core, grocer, Mr. Robt. Olyver, Mr. Roger Hyghame, Mr. Retford and Sebastyan and to Hillary's mother. Newcastle, 27 Sept.
Thos. Jobson, his servant, has been sick for 8 or 9 weeks. Placed him in a strong ship of war to go to Hull, but he left it and went by a craver, which was taken by the Scots, and he was spoiled of all his goods and sold.

27 Sept.459. Thirlby to Paget.
R. O.
St. P., x. 599.
Today Skipperius came, with excuses for not seeing him before, to say that being returned out of England for certain matters which the Emperor and Council had debated, he would this night or tomorrow go again into England with answer, and that, although there had been a little sticking for the passage of the Almains and stay of the money, all should be well, the King might have the money in any coin save the Emperor's, "and where is a greater preparation for more there is no sticking thereat." Thirlby answered that he had not heard of the greater preparation, and thought that the King's agent was receiving such money as remained untaken when the arrest was made; all merchants were suffered to carry the Emperor's coin hence without licence, as he had told the President. Skipperius then spoke of the duty of good ministers to maintain the old amity between the Emperor and King, and offered to carry letters.
Has sent such things as seemed worth advertisement to Antwerpe, and to Mr. Vaughan, and trusts that they are received. Longs for answer to the letters which John Gartia brought, and to hear whether "that little nothing" that he has hitherto done is well or ill. Hears that the Portugall of whom he wrote on the 25th has great intelligence of French affairs; but would not trust him too much. "Albeit ye have been in France, yet, when ye have leisure, look upon Philippe de Commynes: you may peradventure guess the weather and how the wind bloweth as well by him as by Jasper Late." Bruxels, 27 Sept. 1545.
P.S.—Skipperius returned between 5 and 6 p.m. to say that the Emperor was advertised that the Almains would pass through his country, which he could not suffer and yet would be loth to hinder the King's purposes; and, therewith, Skipperius delivered letters from the Commissaries, sent by the Emperor's courier. Read them and declared their effect, to the contrary; and also offered to show the Council's letters commanding him to signify the like. Skipperius said that was unncessary, for he had heard it of the King's own mouth, and had declared it to the Emperor; there remained to know which way they would go, for through Luxemburg, which was devastated by last year's wars, the Emperor would not have them go. Answered that the way was not yet determined, but they would not transgress the King's commandment; and added that he was commanded to make suit for release of the arrest, but deferred until he knew the King's pleasure upon the Emperor's answer made by Scory.
Immediately after Skipperius left, Mr. Vaughan came hither and showed letters commanding that most of the money should be sent to the Commissaries. Will therefore desire audience tomorrow and tarry for no further answer from England.

3. Instructions for Scepperus and Van der Delft in their mission to the King of England, to whom the Emperor now sends Scepperus again.
Scepperus shall return to England with all speed and, with cordial salutations, declare as follows: The Emperor in his presence communicated to the French ambassadors the King's answers to the three points tending to peace proposed by the king of France, and would have been glad if the King had made counter proposals, so as to carry the matter a step further. The Emperor also learnt the principal object of Scepperus' coming hither, viz., to press the King's desire to cross the sea within a month for an interview with the Emperor and Queen of Hungary. On this point both Scepperus and Van der Delft, or one of them if the other is indisposed, shall deliver the Emperor's reply that he is delighted with this token of the King's affection, and has kept the suggestion secret, but, much as he desires the interview, he cannot omit to point out two obstacles, viz., (1) the personal risk, at this late season, to the King, whose dominions on this side are scourged with epidemics and crowded with soldiers, and (2) the Emperor's pledge to meet the states of the Empire at Regensburg by 6 Jan. next, and desire first to visit Gueldres and Utrecht, which will necessitate his early departure hence. Will approach his Flemish-Artois frontier for the interview on condition that the King is there during October and that the king of France consents meanwhile to suspend hostilities; and he has already instructed his ambassador to induce the King of France to consent to such a suspension, and agree to a peace conference within the Emperor's dominions, who will thus have a pretext for approaching the frontier. Has, as the King requested, empowered Scepperus and Van der Delft by letters patent to conclude in principle the holding of this interview. Considering that plagues and sickness prevail in many quarters, and that the Emperor has a long voyage in prospect, the only appropriate places for the interview seem to be Bruges, Nieuport, Bergen St. Winnoc, Dunkirk, Gravelines, Bourbourg or St. Omer, whichever the King may choose. As the interview must be brief, it is necessary that the principal points for discussion should be debated and settled beforehand by confidential ministers on both sides, and they shall therefore ask the King to enlighten the Emperor therein, either by a confidential minister or by Scepperus. If the subject of the aid is broached, they shall say that the Emperor, who is making such strenuous efforts for peace, could not honestly meanwhile help one side against the other, but when he sees how things go he will be free to act; and even during the interview he will, if necessary, furnish the aid, as it is only a question of a money subsidy.
Finally they shall keep in hand the matter of the gold seized by Renegat, and get it delivered to Van der Delft's hands, assuring the King that thereupon the ships embargoed in Spain shall be released. Brussels, 27 Sept. 1545.

R. O.London. 28 Sept. 1545:—Received the enclosed letter yesterday from Humph. Lightfoete with another from Henry Suthweke, who mentions that the Frenchmen, on Monday last, the 21st inst., burnt Olderkerke, Newerkerke, Hoffekerke and Oye, only here and there leaving a house standing, "and went clearly away unfought with, but to our loss of 300 or 400 of our English white coats, the Cleveners of our side showing themselves very hirelings. God send us some other recompense. Some men say that they come to Wale and there burnt also."
This day Rose came for 30l. for Laund the butcher, needed this night; which 30l. I took of Thos. Blanke, the younger, haberdasher, at 26s. 4d. to be repaid 20 Nov.

Being required by Milor Cobano, for the King's service, to tell the truth about what occurred the day that the French army entered into the country of Cales, describes how, being lodged in Cales with the company of gentlemen under Ludovico da Larmi, his Excellency commanded him to mount and go with the company under the command of the Marshal. Marched towards the French, whom they found with about 400 horse skirmishing with Lord Thomas and his men. The rest of his cavalry was coming in three battalions, and the infantry was also coming in order. Lord Thomas gave a good account of them, but had the disadvantage of being in open country; however he would have suffered little loss if two squadrons of Clevois would have succoured him, as they well might. Details how the Clevois failed to support the infantry when called upon to do so by the Marshal, and finally fled towards Cales. There were 1,000 Clevois. The French artillery and arquebusiers did no hurt. Signed (as certifying the truth of the above) by Hyppolito Pallavicino, and by Captains Jacomo de Zabarelli, Bartholomio Moreni, Gramigna da Bologna and Alisandro Marengo.

They now answer Paget's last advertisements sent by bearer, and certify the whole state of their charge. Prays God that these folks may keep promise. Fears that he and his colleagues may be thought negligent, whereas they do all in their power; but all goes "by weight of money." Bearer says that he met Paget's wagon and mares at Rochester. Trusts that he likes them. Encloses a letter from Mr. Montt and Mr. Buckler, received by one of the soldiers. Rennbache, 28 Sept. 1545.
Sebastian, who served as "troucheman" last year, does good service. The writer brought him away from his business at Andwarpe, promising to intercede for him to the King, and begs that he may have such pension as Taphoren has. Could ill forbear him at this time, as well for his speech as his discretion, "to prick forwards these folks." Detain Nicholas, to be despatched as occasion shall serve.

28 Sept.468. Francis Halle to Paget.
R. O.Besides what all we commissioners write to the Council I write this particularly to you, as I have not done since leaving Andwarpe. On Saturday morning Francisco and Nycolas arrived together, with letters of one effect from the Council, as we were leaving Andernaakyn, all our men being at last on this side the Ryne, viz. 20 ensigns of foot lacking 500 or 600 men, l,000 and odd of Ryffynberg's horsemen and above 540 of Hydyllwoolff's. Ryffynberg says that the 20 ensigns are full, and that he has two more (to make up his covenanted five, of which we wrote on the 23rd) and the rest of his horsemen ready beside Collyn. That Saturday we dined with Ryffynberg at Brysake, a good league from Andernaakyn and then rode to Zynsicke, a league further. On Sunday morning, after we had digested the two letters brought by the posts, Ryffynberg came to us and (though the King's new determination should please him much better than marching to Boollyn or Callais) said that, although he himself liked the same well, he would consult certain whom he trusts and answer accordingly. Yesterday we came hither to Rynebakke, 4 long leagues, and this morning Ryffenberg and the Landgrave's secretary brought us letters of credence from the Landgrave to the effect that, where Chr. Prysebrogh and his company were levied by Longevale for the French king, they would first help the duke of Bronswyk into his land and then proceed to hinder us, and therefore we could not do better than help the Landgrave to overthrow the said Sprybrough (sic). It was answered that we knew Ryffynberg's determination to execute only what the King ordained, and that we as commissioners and servants could do no otherwise. The Secretary confessed to me apart that his message from the Landgrave was to refer the matter to our discretion. We promised to advertise the King of the Landgrave's motion. Ryffynberge thought that neither the Landgrave, Hydyll Woolffe nor Bookhowlte should be made privy to the King's new determination, and indeed the bruit that our journey is straight to Callais or Boollyn will beguile the enemy. The towns of Bream, Lwbyke and Hamborrow, a duke in those quarters, and all the country folk are risen against Spryborrow, and the men levied about Gyldyrs to join him are afraid to pass a certain river which, to go to him, they must pass. At departing from the mustering place, beside Sene, "we hard noo moore of a . . . . . . . . erles and oothyr thatt complaynyd, butt oonly of the [b]usch [o] p's of Collyns broodyr," (fn. 3) who at first complained only of the eating of grapes but finally put in a bill for 3,000 "dallars," or nearly 3,000 half angels. Ryffenberg offered him 500 Phylyppus and said "that but for the King's Majesty and us he would not give him a halfpenny, saying that he was once a bishop and that he was still extremely covetous, as all priests be." Tomorrow we march towards the enemy's confines not far from Messiers. Rynebak, 9 leagues from Akon and 5 from Collyn, 28 Sept. 1545.

29 Sept.474. Fane and Others to the Council.
R. O.On the 26th inst., being ready to march from Andernacke, we received your letters by bearer and by Nicholas, which on the morrow we declared to Riffenberghe. He said that he would take advice and make us answer to-day; and so came to us this morning, having just received letters from his master the Landsgrave, who also wrote us letters of credence for a servant of his, to the effect that about Bresme were levied, by Mons. de Longevale, for the French king, certain horsemen and footmen, under Chr. Prisborge, which should first spend nine days in putting the Duke of Bronswicke into his own land again, and then march after us; and therefore it would be to the King's honour if we joined the Landsgrave, who had 10,000 footmen and 2,000 horsemen ready, in overthrowing them. As this seemed strange, we required an hour's consultation; and, having concluded that the Landgrave's desire was to do his enterprise at the King's cost, we sent again for Captain Riffemberghe and asked his resolution upon the King's last advice, and where he would appoint money to be sent for the satisfaction of himself and band at their return homewards. He said that he liked the King's device and would follow it, and asked what answer we would make to the Landsgrave. We said that we took him for the King's servant, although the Landgrave's subject, and would gladly have his advice, for we could not see how we could alter anything of the King's pleasure. He was of the same opinion, but thought that, as the people expected to go to Bolloigne with the half month's wages and receive the rest there, we should have money to give them when they entered the enemy's country. We thereupon declared our state, and that, when he was fully paid according to his first pact, there should "sober us" about 10,000 cr. This he thought would almost satisfy them until their return out of the enemy's land, against which time money should be sent to Acone. We then said that we would signify to the King how upright and faithful he had shown himself, and would tell the Landgrave's messenger, as we did, that as servants we dare not change the King's orders; and we required him to lose no time in proceeding against the enemy.
That we may have sufficient money for all events, it is thought good that Chamberlen and Avery go to-day to Colloigne, 5 leagues hence, to get 8,000 cr. or 10,000 cr. by exchange, to be repaid by Mr. Vaughan in Andwerpe. Please order money to be sent to Acone for the clear discharge of these bands, so that if any mutiny arise in the enemy's land, we may say that, upon their giving us sure conduct, we will bring money from thence. And the King should write a letter of recommendation to the rulers of Acon, that they may write after us to the captain that treasure has been sent thither; "for if these people begin to wax in a rage, persuasions will not help without sight of and handling the very thing that they work for, which is money."
Desire to know what rewards to give at the final dismissal of the army. Already Eidell Wolfe and Buckeholt say that without the King's goodness to them they are undone. The Council might write to Riffenberghe who takes the 5,500l. Fl. delivered him by Mr. Vaughan wholly for the conduct of the footmen and half month's wages of the horsemen. Countermanded the 12,000l. Fl. for which they wrote to Vaughan. Wrote for it, expecting Riffenbergh's men to ask a whole month's wages beforehand as Eidell Wolfe did. Upon the demand for a page to every 12 horses as well as a baggager, and all other questions, the writers desire full instructions, so that there may be no delay at the dissolution of the army.
Enclose translation of the advertisement from the town of Bresme whereupon the Landsgrave sent his messenger hither; also a letter from the Bishop of Colloigne to the King. Wrote that Eidell Wolfe asked 45 days' conduct for each of his horsemen; but, when it came to reckoning, they would needs have 57 days, and mutinied for a while, "and after Riffenbergh's horsemen." In consideration of their having so many days' conduct, Eidell Wolfe's band enter wages on the 16th inst., while the rest begin on the 6th. Some of Riffenbergh's horsemen ask 31 days' conduct, and some, he says, will ask more. Riffenbergh's 20 ensigns are filled up to 400 in each, and two more are come of the five bargained for. Have now 1,588 horse, of which 544 are Eydell Wolff's, who brings also 36 more at his own charge rather than forsake them. Will be fain to do the like with Buckholte. Riffenbergh promises to muster the rest of his to-morrow or next day; and on Thursday the writers expect to reach Akon and muster Buckholt's band. And then, as Riffenbergh says, within three or four days they will be in the French borders. Enclose a remembrance by Riffenbergh of the towns' names by which they will pass.

R. O.I, the bp. of Westm., received by Francis the courier, on Wednesday afternoon, 23rd inst., your pleasure, declared by letters of the Council, that I should go the Emperor for the release of your money received by Mr. Vaughan, and to declare your command given to the Commissaries touching the passage of your army of the Almains. As Mr. Vaughan had already made suit and received answer, as we wrote on the 19th, we deferred making further suit until we should know your further pleasure. On Monday (fn. 4) morning I, Westminster, sued for audience, by Skipperus (upon occasion of our communication on Sunday evening, of which I advertised Secretary Paget, and Mr. Vaughan's coming again for licence to carry the Emperor's money received before the arrest) and on Monday evening I declared to the Emperor (1) your commandment to the Commissaries (which, he said, was brotherly ordered) and (2) that I was commanded to sue for release of the arrest, and had used persuasions to President Scory, but to him would only say that I doubted not that he would consider your case in accordance with the amity between you, and that your factor durst not exchange this money without your command (and the exchange of it would occupy a great time) and yet was commanded to send a great sum to the army of Almains upon word from your Commissaries and employ the rest upon affairs that required expedition. The Emperor answered "I pray you, resort to President Score and tell him your considerations, and you shall have answer by him, and tell the King my good brother que je suis et tous jours seray son bone frere et amye." On the morrow Vaughan and we went to Scorye; who had heard the Emperor's pleasure by Skipperus and promised to declare our sayings to the Queen and bring us the Emperor's resolution. (fn. 5) This morning Scory sent to me, the bp. of Westm., and showed me that the Emperor had written to his ambassador in England to declare his reasons for not suffering so great a sum of his coin to be transported, and that he (Scory) was commanded to write to Antwerpe for aid to be given to your factor in exchanging it, and, for further expedition, there would be no sticking for 10,000 or 12,000 gilderns of this coin. And, about noon, Scouy sent me two closed letters, one to the Margrave of Antewerpe and the other to Jasper Duche. (fn. 6) Bruxelles, 30 Sept. 1545. Signed.

This day President Scory, after telling the Emperor's answer for release of the arrest, said he was glad that Thirlby was alone, as he had something to show but would not have it known that he had shown it, viz., that he had seen the copy of a letter from the French king of the 10th inst. to Mons. de Rouniac, who has been accustomed to levy Almains for the French king, to gather Almains about Leage to let the passage of Henry's army into France, and already many were assembled, but if our men made haste they might still pass; also that Mons. du Longavale wrote to the Chapter Episcopi Leodicensis that the army of Almain Protestants gathered to serve Henry had wasted all the bpric. of Treves and would now come and lie in their lands, but if they would make resistance he had 2,000 horsemen ready to aid them. Has thereupon written both to Mr. Vaughan and to the Commissaries (copies herewith). Bruxels, 30 Sept. 1545.

R. O.Mr. Carne and I have written to the King the answer we have for the release of the arrest. John Barnardine told me he advertised you from Antwarpe what he could learn of the Portugale, Theotonio, who seems to be a practitioner for the French king "and would bring a jealousy in our heads of I know not whom." He was open enough with Barnardine; but I would you had him, for he could tell much of the state of France. At his departing he said that he would go upon my letters, but when they were offered him he would not take them. The Secretary of Farrare told me that a Spanish Grey Friar named Gilbanke, (fn. 6) who was a great worker in this peace between the Emperor and French king "and for the same hath a great abbey (fn. 7) of the French king's gift in France," was here about the time of the Duke of Orliance's death to solicit the Emperor to keep promise for the delivery of Millen, "not knowing the Duke to be dead," and is coming again for another practice betwixt the Emperor and French king for a marriage.

30 Sept.488. Thirlby to Vaughan.
R. O.This morning President Scory gave me the Emperor's answer, viz., that he had written to his ambassador in England to declare his reasons for not suffering so great a quantity of his own coin to be carried out of his country. Scory added that he was commanded to write that Vaughan should have every assistance in exchanging it, and that the Emperor would not stick at 10,000 or 12,000 gildens; but I thought best not to get licence for this until I knew the King's pleasure. I hear from a good place that Mons. de Rouneac is gathering footmen about Lyege, and already has many ready to serve the French king, and that Mons. de Longavall with 2,000 horsemen is ready to join them, to let the passage of our men. If you send money, beware lest it fall into their hands. The danger lies betwixt the Emperor's Base Countries and our army. Herewith you shall receive my letters of news to the Commissaries, to be conveyed to them with speed. Bruxells, 30 Sept. 1545.

R. O.
St. P., x. 603.
After the arrival here of his letters of the 13th ult., signifying the doings of Ludovico de Larmes and his men at Venice and Treviso, the Secretary of Venice declared the matter to the King, who answered that, albeit he would not allow Ludovico's doings, if they were as the Secretary stated, yet, as his captain appointed to lead certain men of war of that nation, he trusted that they would temper the rigor of their processes therein; as for the officers of Venice Ludovico, having many enemies there, suborned by the bp. of Rome and the French king, might justly draw his sword in self defence, not knowing them to be officers; and as for the hurting of the man in Treviso, it seemed that the man, who had engaged to serve, used "onsitting" language towards the King, and among soldiers contempts are rigorously punished; the King expected Ludovico within six or seven days and would then know the truth, and if it appeared that there was no intention to contemn their authority he trusted that they would neither banish Ludovico or any of his gentlemen nor use extremity against him (fn. 9) whom they detain in prison. This was the effect of the King's answer; and the secretary trusted to get answer again to his contentation.
Angelo Mariano has by letter recommended certain noblemen for service in the King's wars; but, as the year is far spent and their demands excessive, Harvel shall write to Angelo Mariano to thank them, and say that next year, if the King needs them and their demands are more reasonable, he will entertain them. The King has accepted to his service—(blank), a Hungarian, who undertakes to go to Constantinople and send news from thence by way of Venice. Harvel shall devise with him for the conveying of letters.

R.

I beg that he may be ordered to make an end therein, also that I may have the price of the herrings, which is about 11,000l. de gros, and of which he took account of 5,000l. de gros, and the rest was referred to the King. Asks therewith some gratuity for managing the finance of the 300,000 ducats. The Emperor gives him, besides other gratuities, one per cent., and he did his best to manage it at 10 per cent, when he might easily have had 16 per cent. Begs that, if it is not convenient to pay in ready money, he may at least have an obligation to pay within a year or that he may retain the jewels for it. Recommendations to the Chancellor.
Hears that there is some proposal of a contract for the King's lead in exchange for alum and money, and begs to know what it is, and to have the preferment; for he has here the monopoly of alum, and such a contract becomes him better than any other. Signed.

Calendar,
viii., No. 143.
Encloses copies of the joint letters of M. Noirthoudt and himself to the Emperor and Queen of Hungary reporting what they can do for peace between England and France. Learns from M. D'Albret that the King of France seeks peace by a marriage between Vendôme and the Princess of England, but sticks at England's insistance upon Boulogne being either retained by him or remaining to the Princess on her marriage. Meanwhile the French are seeking a truce (although declaring that they will not grant it), being in such necessity that if they have to contribute to the war for another year half of them must abandon their property. The day after Orleans died the Admiral went to Boulogne to negociate peace, or at least a truce, reckoning without their host to so provision their fort before Boulogne as to confine the English to the township and enjoy the rest of the Boulognais themselves. Encloses copy of medical report upon Orleans' illness, who died of pleurisy due to drinking cold water when heated; also copy of his negociation "with regard to the aid to the King of England." A fortnight ago the English burnt Tréport, killing all men and women they could catch. De Nevers, D'Aumale and De Boissy only arrived there after the English had left, who now dominate the sea. There is talk of commissioning 40 ships to protect the coast, as the season condemns the galleys to rot in harbour. The Scots blame the French for not sending money. An ambassador from Scotland arrived two days ago to arrange for its defence during the winter, as the English have men and ships ready to invade. The King lately sent the Jacobin friar (fn. 10) who busied himself about the peace to inform the Emperor that the Protestants promise him Boulogne if he will join them against the Emperor in the matter of the Council; but that he would rather obtain Boulogne by the Emperor's intervention. The friar is also to intimate that the King is requesting the Pope to declare the King of England schismatic and exhort Christian princes to attack him. The French expect a great ransom from the Marshal of Calais (fn. 11) whom they lately took prisoner when he was rabbit hunting. On 20 Aug. Count William paid his ransom of 30,000 ducats, by persuasion of Secretary Jean Jaques, a German, but the King still insisted on his remaining in Paris until the Prince of Roche sur Yonne should be ransomed, and in his despair he is fallen into a frenzy. He should have followed the Emperor's advice. Ten days ago, in the King's presence, the Strozzis blamed Paulin for mismanagement during the Admiral's voyage against the English, producing a written statement of the events of the voyage; but the King told them to remain friends as all that was done was by his special orders, thus exonerating the Admiral, whom everyone blames. The Emperor requested leave for the Cardinal of Carpi to resign an abbacy in France to a Frenchman; but the King refused, on the ground that Carpi had favoured the Emperor against France. This was before Orleans died. The Pope has contributed nothing to the war against England because the King flatly refused his demand that any treaty made with England should include the Holy See. The King's displeasure at the Pope's transferring Parma and Piacenza to his son, for the Duke of Camerino. The Prior of Capua and his brother have robbed the Emperor's subjects at sea and put Spaniards in the galleys. Attempt by men dismissed from the fleet to pillage the lodging of the ambassadors of Venice and Ferrara. Highwaymen captured in Normandy include two Spanish captains in the King's pay, who beg the writer's intercession. The French despair of getting Busque in Piedmont from the Emperor now that Orleans is dead. Loan of 120,000 fr. with difficulty obtained from the people of Paris. Since Orleans' death, has done nothing connected with the fulfilment of the treaty of peace and cannot therefore report whether the French consider it at an end or not. The writer and all his people have been ill.

"The-–– (fn. 12) day of J––– (fn. 12) aº 36, 1544, the King sent a great army over the sea to Mutterell; which besieged the same by the Duke of Norfolk and the lord Russell. The-–– (fn. 12) day-–– (fn. 12) the same year, the King sent over the Duke of Suffolk and other, who the 19th day of July encamped before Bolleyne." On the 13 July the King in person passed the seas, and on the 26th encamped himself within half a mile of the town, which surrendered on the-–– (fn. 12) Sept., Mons. Vervyne grand captain of the town. Next day the Duke of Suffolk rode into the town, to whom, in the King's name, they surrendered the keys. On the 18th (15th written above) Sept. the King entered it, the marquis of Dorset bearing the sword before him, "and there tarried a space and then returned into England." During the siege the Emperor made a peace with the French king; "which caused the King so shortly to return into England." Also during the siege the Earl of Surrey and the lord Warden of the Cinque Ports, Sir Thos. Cheynye, invaded Picardy and burned St. Richards and divers towns and villages on the Somme to the gates of Abbeville, and returned with great booty.
"This 37 year, 1545, about the 20 of July, the lord Donybalte, Admiral of France, came with 200 sail afore the Isle of Wight, the King's Majesty being there near at Portsmouth (where Sir George Carew was drowned in the Mary Rose), and certain of the Frenchmen landed in the Isle of Wight, where their captain (fn. 13) was slain and they driven to their ships.
"In August ao37, 1545, the Earl of Hertford entered Scotland with 12,000 men, and destroyed all the towns in the Middle Marches, passed to the West Marches (sic) and destroyed Coldingham abbey, and yet the Scots lay at Kelsey and durst not meddle with him.
"This year, in September, the Viscount Lisle, lord Admiral, arrived in Normandy, and burned Treypourte and all the villages along the sea coast, and returned without damage."

497. Cardinal Pole to Cochlæus.
Poli Epp.,
iv. 4.
Although he was expecting Cochlæus himself rather than his letters, understanding that he was coming to this Diet as proctor for the bp. of Eichstädt (fn. 16) (Eystetensis) thanks him for replying to Pole's verbal salutation by the abp. of Armagh (fn. 17) by letters in which he recognises his old approved piety to the Church and love for England, as he not only laments the cruel death of those who have been our leaders in piety and learning, but testifies that he has defended them against their enemies, who are those of the Church. Read that defence (fn. 18) long ago and has loved him ever since. Wrote to thank him for it some years ago, but now perceives that the letters never reached him. Will be glad to gratify Cochlæus in any way. Begs him to continue in what he writes that he is doing, and to be remembered in his prayers for the Church. Commendations to the bp. of Eichstädt. Trent.

Will take care to get the books themselves. Cochlæus asks for his advice whether to publish certain books he has composed, especially one called De Patrocinio Parvulorum, disapproving the custom of withholding the Eucharist from children. Gives reasons in opposition to his view. Read with pleasure the copy he sent of Groper's letters to him.
