|Received his letters announcing his victory over the French and Scots, which was to be expected from so brave an army, and so experienced a leader. Begs to hear from him again. After the defeat of the French at Novara some of their accomplices surrendered; others, such as Barnabas Marquis Malaspina who incited the Alexandrines to revolt, have suffered death. Has no fear of the Venetians any longer, who had set a garrison in Crema, and were two days ago defeated at Ulmo near Vicenza. Bartholomew Alvianus fled; the rest saved themselves in Padua. The hopes of the French are ruined in Italy. Milan, 11 Oct. 1513.|
|P.S. in his own hand. It only remains for Henry to finish the war. It will be much to his credit to have rescued Italy from the foul yoke of the French. [Signature lost.]|

|2353. [4500.] SILVESTER [DE GIGLIS] BP. OF WORCESTER to HENRY VIII.|
|After he and Cardinal Bainbridge had written their letter in common, the Pope told De Giglis privately that he was strongly urged by the College of Cardinals to send legates to the different Christian Princes, according to the decisions of the Lateran Council,—for a general union against the Turks, who are making great preparations against Christendom; and as Louis, the schismatic King of France, is in so low a condition that he cannot refuse, he hopes that England will agree to the proposition. To prove the Pope's regard for Henry's honour the legate to him shall be the Cardinal of England, who, however will not accept the office until he knows Henry's pleasure; and the Pope asks that the messenger sent with this letter may go and return within 22 days.

|2355. [4502.] HENRY VIII. to LEO X.|
|That he may not be deceived by false rumors, writes briefly of the great success which God has continuously vouchsafed to him. Has already informed him of the late victory gained by the Earl of Surrey, with small loss, and the slaughter of 13,000 Scots. Has sent the particulars, as related to him in numerous letters, to the Cardinal of York and the Bp. of Worcester, to show to his Holiness, that he may be able to prove that God is fighting in behalf of the Holy Alliance. Notwithstanding his affinity to the King of Scots, and repeated promises of amity received from him, had been always as much prepared for war as for peace. James was seduced by France, from whom he received a large sum of gold, and a great number of men and guns, to invade England in Henry's absence, by which he has inflicted a heavy blow upon his own kingdom. Henry will not fail to follow up his advantage, although one (fn. 1) of the Scotch nobles, who alone escaped, having saved himself by flight, has submissively desired a truce. And now this great and wealthy city of Tournay has surrendered to him after eight days' siege, along with other neighbouring castles. Had intended to pursue the French, who were said to be advancing on Cambray, but they fled so rapidly that he despaired of overtaking them. He accordingly remained at Tournay to consult with the Emperor and the Lady Margaret for the consummation of the marriage of the Prince of Castile. The Prince himself arrived on the 10th. Is much delighted with his conversation. Must return to England, now that winter is close at hand and the Scotch affairs are urgent, to meet his Parliament, which is summoned for the 1st of Nov. Will return as soon as possible, with a larger army, and prosecute the war with all possible vigor. Will leave to-morrow. Begs he will revoke certain concessions made to the King of Scots which are injurious to England. The church of St. Andrew's was only recently made metropolitan and the Archbishop slain in the battle was only the second of that dignity, and his predecessors were always suffragans of the Abp. of York. Begs he will recall the grant of metropolitan honors to that see, and reduce it to the dignity of a bishopric, and also restore the priory of Coldingham, which had been given in commendam to the late Archbp. of St. Andrews', to the see of Durham. As the affairs of Scotland concern him nearly, begs Leo not to dispose of any of the Scotch bishoprics, rendered vacant by the slaughter of the prelates who were in the battle, armed and without sacerdotal habit, until Henry has expressed his wishes with regard to them. Requests that he will write to the Bp. of London to allow the body of the King of Scots, who died under excommunication, to be carried to London, and buried with royal honors at St. Paul's.

|To-day the King of England's Council have required her to write to the Emperor to hasten his coming and to let them know the day and place where he will be, so that they may dismiss most of their men; and with a certain number of men the King will still be able to wait some days. They say also that if the Emperor does not return and take some other conclusion than has hitherto been taken they will repute all that has passed between him, the King and them void. This would involve the ruin of these countries and she begs him to hasten his coming.|

But as the Swiss are of such nature that they must be entertained by pensions, and receive wages, it is thought that authority should be given to the "said" ambassador of Aragon to conclude [as well] upon the said league as upon a yearly pension to them by common contribution of the Pope, the Emperor, the Kings of England and of Aragon. To this the King's ambassador may say that the Pope, Emperor and King are agreeable and have no doubt that Aragon will do his part.|

Intended this last Tuesday to have made a great raid into Scotland, but was prevented by the waters. If they continue, will have to wait for the next moon. Thinks it desirable for the article contained in his letter to the Queen, written after he was with Ruthal at Durham, for the manning of Etall and Ford, to be remembered, as there is no abstinence at this time.

|Has received the King's letter and his; has returned an answer to the King. The Duke of Gloucester, late warden of the West Marches, and Earl of Northumberland, of the East and Middle, thought it a great enterprise to make a raid into Tevydale with all their friends and adherents. Though a man of much less substance, Dacre will attempt raids on the West and Middle Marches at the King's desire. Cannot attempt the East March at present. My Lord of Norfolk, in the last war, with my Lords of Winchester, Conyers, Sir William Bulmer and others, and 1,000 soldiers, supported by Berwick and Norham, found it as much as they could do to make a raid in Tevydale. Little help from Northumberland, it being so poor and wasted. As for a good and secret workman to make your iron gates at Norham, I send William Hall who shall be with you on Sunday next.
