406. [WOLSEY to the BISHOP OF WORCESTER.]
* * Is to request the Pope to take these reasons into consideration, and not limit the legateship, which his Holiness can revoke whenever he pleases. Wolsey's only wish in retaining it is the service of God. Leaves the matter in [Worcester's] hands; but wishes the bull of the legateship should be expedited in the form desired, before Campeggio leaves England. Has heard from Silvester Darius and secretary Vannes that [Worcester] is very desirous of obtaining the King's permission to visit Lucca. The King grants permission, provided matters be so arranged as to suffer nothing from [Worcester's] absence. He must, however, return with all speed to Rome. Sends him 500 ducats by Giov. Cavalcanti, and will send 500 more on his return. [Worcester] will have no reason to repent any trouble he may have bestowed on the legateship. London, 1 Aug. 1519.

The wife of the prisoner in the Tower begs him incessantly to ask Wolsey for her husband's release. Prays Wolsey to do so, according to his promise. Has had letters from Flanders full of good news.

408. ERASMUS to FISHER.
Hears that Reuchlin is teaching Greek and Hebrew at Ingolstadt on a salary of 200 crowns. He was advised by his friends to leave his country, for the following reasons. When it was feared that the duke of Wurtemberg, against whom Hutten writes, would take Stuttgard (Stockardia), Reuchlin advised the citizens to migrate. He remained behind; the Duke was driven off; Reuchlin's house was spared; but the citizens after their return molested Reuchlin. All Germany is very angry with Lee, and Erasmus cannot pacify them.

409. [CHARLES V. to FRANCIS I.]
Has received his letter by the sieur de Laussac, from St. Germain en Laye, the... July, and his congratulations on his election. No advancement of his will ever diminish his anxiety for their mutual amity, and the peace of Christendom; and as his correspondent has more power than any other in this respect, he should hold the first place in the extirpation of heresy. Begs credence for Dutreche his ambassador. Barcelona, 3 Aug.

410. ROBERT LORDE to WOLSEY.
Eight hoys in wages have come laden with timber and stone, which, as the masons tell the treasurer and comptroller, is too brittle to work. The treasurer has therefore written to the mason at the quarry to send no more till they hear from Wolsey, and he wishes also to know whether the hoys shall continue in wages now their month is expired, and they call for money. No one can make them answer, as Wm. Gonston is absent, and the council do not think it convenient to send them for more stuff. According to his orders, sent his warrant to the customer at Sandwich, who says he cannot pay it, as he has little money come to his office since Easter. The sum of 79l. 12s. 0d. is still owing to ships of Dover, Sandwich and Calais, for transporting men, horses, and stuff, besides 50l. received of Robert Fowler, as several masters and owners have brought in bills for service done by them not mentioned in the book signed by Wolsey. They have all been examined by the Master of the Rolls, and found to be true. Has written to Wm. Lyllegrave, telling him that Wolsey wishes him to come here as soon as possible. He has not answered either Lorde's letter or the treasurer's. Hears he has gone to Bristowe by the King's order. Asks leave to return "to oversee my poor office, which is my great charge." The last time he was in the North Country for Wolsey, his servant "ran unto sanctuary" with 80l. and is there still, "by reason whereof 1, my poor wife and children, is like to fare the worse whilst we live." Calais, 6 Aug.

411. EDWARD LABORNE to the COUNTESS OF SALISBURY.
On the 24th July, sent to her son, (fn. 1) "whom I beseche God restore too helthe," letters by his servant, showing that affairs at Wimbourne are not governed to the comfort of her son the Dean. A malicious parson, named Rikman, with two adherents, has complained "both to your estate and to my lord," in the name of the whole parish. He did the same at Dorchester lately, but when he was examined by Sir Edw. Willowbie, one of the justice of the peace, many of the parishioners denied it, and were angry with Rykman; "only our sexton, and one John Watman," corroborated his assertion. The writer will forfeit the "living that my Lord your son gave me," if the sexton's life "in our house" is not abominable. He is outlawed at Salisbury for debt, and will be so in two places more by Michaelmas. He does no service nor worship to her son. An examination should be had, lest matters grow worse. Wimborne, 7 Aug. "By your daily beedman, Edwarde Laborne, priest, and ther scholemaster."

Found the King playing with the French hostages. He is glad, considering the enormous expense, he did not obtain the empire; said the same to the duke of Suffolk, and showed the duke of Buckingham how well Pace had been received in Almain. Two of the English ambassadors with the Pope are corrupted by France. This night the King goes to Otford. The duke of Buckingham makes him excellent cheer. Penshurst, Aug. 11.

414. RIC. FOX BISHOP OF WINCHESTER to WOLSEY.
Received his letters by the bearer, stating that the attendance to be given upon him, as in last Lent, is to be prorogued. As Wolsey asks his advice, thinks next Lent a much more "propice" time for such treaties, and in the mean time he can the better discover the resolution of religious persons in matters concerning their reformation. Considers also that to attend on him before the resolution would be unprofitable, and perhaps not honorable.
"Would God that the poor lodging of Esher did content your grace as much as it rejoiceth me that it can please you to use it." "Use it all ways, as often and as long as it shall please you, right as your own, and make it a cell to Hampton Court, as the King that dead is, whose soul God pardon, made Hampton Court and it cells to Richmond."

415. [WOLSEY to SIR THOMAS BOLEYN.]
Stating the reasons for the King wishing to decline the interview at present, as supposing that it would be very inconvenient for the French king. His sincerity in desiring it may be judged from his preparations at Calais. Considering the time of year is so far past, and the King's mother is desirous to put off the said meeting by a commission to be sent into England, Boleyn shall confirm them in this intention as most convenient to all parties. If Francis should fulfil his purpose of coming by post, he could bring neither his queen nor any of his council with him.

416. SIR THOMAS BOLEYN to [WOLSEY].
Wrote last on the 30th ult. Has since received by his priest Wolsey's letter of the 28th July, in accordance with which he has told the [French] king how Henry had labored to procure his election until it was hopeless, and desired him to take the event in good part, as it was not to his dishonor. Francis thanked the King for his good offices; assured Boleyn that the first proposal to make him Emperor had come from some of the Electors, and, considering what "inquietness" he should have had if he had attained to it, thought himself "much bound to God" that he was quit of it. Boleyn also expressed to him Wolsey's satisfaction at understanding his readiness to send compensation to the English merchants whenever the amount should be certified, and told him Wolsey was taking measures to ascertain it, and would inform him of it by the feast of All Saints. Francis renewed his assurances that whenever the amount was ascertained the money should be sent without delay; affirming with "a great oath" that there were "right few men living" whom he trusted so much as Wolsey. Boleyn has not yet heard of any Frenchman robbed in like manner.
As to the interview, he explained to Francis how Henry was no less desirous of it than himself, but that it was almost impossible it could take place this summer; arrangements might be made before the end of summer for it to take place the next. As a proof of the King's desire, he had resolved to wear his beard till the said meeting. To requite this token of his affection, Francis "laid his hand on his beard, and said surely he would never put it off till he had seen him." He desired to see the Cardinal more than any priest living; thought it might take place at the end of May, between Calais and Boulogne; and proposes to send to England this Christmas Mons. La [Bastye] to make arrangements. Boleyn told him that although England had made a peace with the Emperor, yet, in consideration of the marriage of the Dauphin with the Princess, preference would in all things be given to France. The King replied that he, too, had an alliance with the Emperor, and proposed that he should marry his daughter, and, referring to the meeting, said though England was an island, assured from all enemies, and he open to attack on all sides, he was not afraid. The Pope and the Venetians had many in the realm of Naples, so that if Charles and he fell to debate they would readily revolt against him. He has lately sent Seint Marsault, one of his minions, to the Pope.
Sends a letter addressed by the duke of Albany into Scotland "for the well entreating of the Queen there." The Duke desires the prolongation of the truce ending St. Andrew's day. The Pope's legate here should have had the bishopric of Cotance, and the cardinal Boysy that of Alby, but the chapter claim their own right to elect. The Queen has been sick. The bastard of Savoy, Villroy the ch[ancellor], Robertet and the generals are away for their holidays to Bloys. The Admiral is expected at the end of the month. Has arranged with the controller of the posts for the conveyance of his letters to Calais. Thinks "a gown cloth of silk or a hoby once in the year" will satisfy him.
Has received a letter from Wolsey, dated the 9th, by William Pawne, for the sale of timber and stuff at Tournay. The time is unfavorable, as Chatillon has left. Last night the ambassador "passed by Paris out ... into England ward." "A bishop ... him levesque Dyon, he sayth it is the Jacobin ... that was late in England." It is thought strange that he does not visit the court. The King Catholic has arrested all the ships of Biscay;—it is supposed, for his coming into Flanders. Will send his priest back shortly with an answer to what Wolsey showed him. Melun, 14 Aug. Signed.

419. INSTRUCTIONS of CHARLES V. for his AMBASSADORS in England.
Jehan de la Sauch, the bearer, shall first, in company with the bishop of Elna and Hesdin, present his letters of credence to the King, and thank him for sending Pace to the Electors, and for persuading the Pope to send Sion, as well as for his kind letters, and the offers made by Spinelly. Sends de la Sauch to answer more thoroughly those offers contained in Wolsey's letters, and matters proposed by the King to Hesdin. The more power increases, the more anxious he is to preserve his alliance with England. Though some are jealous of his power, he intends to use it in the service of God and the Holy See, and for the destruction of the enemies of religion. They shall thank Henry for the wish he has expressed to preserve and increase their present alliance, and assure him that Charles means to gratify him in all things possible; but as he has not declared the manner and the points in which he desires the alliance to be more strict, wishes for a statement of his intention and his advice, and will then send a great personage with clear instructions.
Has granted all the Pope's demands, who, he thinks, can have no just occasion to ally himself to the Emperor's prejudice. According to Henry's advice, treats the French King with all gentleness, and adheres to the treaties. Though he has not yet accepted a diet (journée), has sent a gracious reply to his letters of congratulation, of which De la Sauch may show him a copy. Ever since he concluded the hereditary league with the Swiss, has endeavoured to bind them wholly to himself. Has given them pensions, and sent ambassadors to the diet to be held at Baden on the 15th, knowing that others offer them plenty of crowns and pensions. Wishes Henry to write to Sion, and send ambassadors to treat with them. It is necessary to gain the Swiss for the common good; for if Henry mean to do any feat he should make sure they do not fight against him. It is the secret of secrets to gain them at any price. Thanks the King for his wish that Charles should pass by England. These offers are very agreeable, and he does not intend to refuse them. They are to communicate these matters to Wolsey, thanking him for his messages by Spinelly, and his great services in the election. They shall also present Charles's letters to the Queen, Ponynges and others. Barcelona, 16 Aug. '19.

Campeggio, who is now returning, has acted with great moderation and prudence, and gained the good opinion of all men. Takes this opportunity of writing to Worcester. Has explained already the King's resolve respecting the confirmation of the five years' truce. He is content that, after the Pope has signified by his breve that he will enter no league adverse to the truce, the said truce shall be ratified in his name, and solemnly confirmed, if possible by the German and French ambassadors. As Wolsey has stated already, the King was not well satisfied with the Pope's neglect in the affairs of Germany; but Wolsey and Campeggio have removed his dissatisfaction. The last communications of Worcester demand consideration. Waits the completion of the affair of the legateship. London, 19 Aug. 1519.

The expedition will be joined by the nobles; its expences be met by a tenth from the clergy, and a fifteenth from the laity. Campeggio, who now takes his leave, will explain more to his Holiness.

Accounted to the Bishop's auditor, in the presence of his brother Rothall, and his chancellor Master Franklin. If Ruthal doubts the accuracy of the accounts, requests that twelve indifferent artificers may view the works, and he will abide their verdict. "There was never so great works so sumptuously and curiously wrought in so many parts within all the King's realm with so little money as I have demanded." Has received little or no money since Midsummer "was a twelvemonth." But the works go forward, and shall till they are finished, so long as he has money, or anything to make money of. Wishes Ruthal knew what money he has raised upon his own goods rather than they should be stopped. Not a penny is owing to the workmen. Prays to God and St. Cuthbert that Routhal may see the works.
