195. William, Lord Howard to John, Lord Russell, Lord Privy Seal.
[1546], Dec. 11. Advertises him that “upon Allhollonday in the morning,” the 12th day after his departure, he came to my Lord of Winchester at a town called Grenoble three score mile and more beyond Lyons, where they were forced to tarry till Monday to make provision for victuals to carry with them, knowing that they would find none on the way; so that they could go no further in a day than their baggage might reach at night, and were six days before they came to the town where they found his Grace, which is called Bryanson, a hundred miles beyond Grenoble, and did ride continually among the mountains.
Prays him to consider what it is to pass the mountains at this time of the year, when they are covered with snow, and begs his good word with the King, on account of this ill journey. His Lordship has sent him to a king that is very strange to know. Will declare him on his coming home.—“Bryanson,” 11 Dec.

196. Prince Edward to Henry VIII.
[1546]. “Si filiorum pietas omnibus officiis parentes suos prosequi debet, venerande pater, non sum adeo teneræ etatis quin possim intelligere officium meum esse omnibus modis gratificari majestati tuæ; non solum quia pater es, sed quia pater pientissimus, et filii tui amantissimus. Quare cum nullum adhuc aliud officium pietati tuæ prestare possum preter salutationes, idque per literas non per sermonem, visum est iterum scribere. Peto autem a celsitudine tua benedictionem mihi impertiri, ut videre celsitudinem tuam gestio, sic non importune peto, nisi celsitudini tuæ placuerit. Opto deniqne atque oro deum, ut diutissime ac felicissime vivat tua majestas. Majestatis tuæ filius obsequentissimus. Edouardus Princeps.”
Addressed :—“To the kinges majesti my father.”
