This morning I have had letters from Flanders of the 22nd instant, by which I am advised that the English were crossing over to Normandy; and also this morning the brother of the Marshal de Brissac has told me that, by a man of his who left that coast two days ago, he has advice that three thousand English had already embarked for their passage hither, and that other three thousand had made their muster for the same purpose.
