To remind him of what Magnus Beild was charged to tell his uncle by James IV. (No. 1564) viz., that the English had broken the treaty, wasted his lands, &c., but notwithstanding he had for many years kept the peace, disliking to take up arms against a Christian. When the English were invading France he asked the King in a friendly way to desist from harassing his ally and relation, fearing that after conquering that country he would turn his arms against Scotland. At this the King of England swore not to cease from war until he had taken the life and kingdom of the Scots, or lost his own. Angry at this, he hastily collected an army and invaded England, taking several castles, but, rashly engaging the English army, fell in battle (described), with most of his nobles, losing all the baggage and artillery. Many more, however, of the enemy were killed; but their chief men all escaped, being posted in the reserves and rear. The King of England, elated by this victory, threatens to destroy Scotland. The King of France has promised to send assistance in the spring. Trusts that Denmark will do the same. A French ambassador is also sent for the same purpose. Brownhill is to show what danger Scotland is in, that soon assistance will be too late, and to allow him to make his own terms. To send word as soon as possible, what assistance will be sent. To remind him of his desire for the marriage with the cousin of the French King, of the House of Boulogne. De la Basty will show the terms for the marriage, &c.

From Henry VIII. to the Signory, London, 18 Jan.—Has heard that it is their fault that the agreement with the Emperor is not made. They should not delay to make it, for otherwise he cannot do less than make every demonstration against them.

Sp. Transcr., I., 5, f. 388. R.O. 2583. FERDINAND KING OF ARAGON to JUAN DE LANUZA.
Wrote on 8 Dec. concerning the treaty concluded between the Emperor, England and him, and on 20 Dec. wrote why he had ordered Luis Caroz, Urea and Lanuza to say no more of it and not exchange ratifications. His reason is that the schism which was the motive of the war no longer exists and that the state (described) of affairs in Italy is dangerous, while France has made offers (detailed) which are advantageous to the Emperor and him in many ways (specified). The risk of continuing the war is increased by the inconstancy of the English, who may forsake the Emperor as they forsook Ferdinand last year. The King of France is willing to continue paying England the pensions and not to raise difficulties in Scotland, Milan, Gueldres, Navarre and Naples. This despatch to be communicated to Madame Margaret in great secrecy (although Quintana has orders to write to her from Germany) and every effort made to secure her assistance.

Sp. Transcr., I., 5, f. 384. R.O. 2584. FERDINAND KING OF ARAGON to QUINTANA.
The Pope has sent a nuncio asking him to persuade the Emperor to cede his cities to the Venetians. Intention of the Italians, with Swiss aid, to expel the Emperor and him; and their preference for the King of France who at least, they say, does not ask for money. Vich wrote on 24 Dec. of the Pope's wish that he should persuade the Emperor to make a truce with Venice.
Desires the Emperor's help in persuading France to pay the pensions and not oppose the King of England in the government of Scotland. This ought to satisfy that King, who must not expect the Emperor and Ferdinand to risk losing their Italian possessions in order to help him against France. Should the Emperor unreasonably refuse to make peace with France, Quintana must go to France and await further instructions; meanwhile preparing the King of France for the idea of a separate peace with Ferdinand. His only doubt is of the sincerity of the King of France. The treaty with England for the invasion of France is to remain in suspense.

Learnt by his letters of 6 and 11 Jan. what he negociated in France. The Emperor would act against all reason to decline a peace which offers him such assistance against Venice and Gueldres. Wrote to him on 18 Jan. by Mathiu Carate (duplicates herewith). Lanuza is ordered to give Madame Margaret particulars of Quintana's mission. If the Emperor declines to become a party to the peace with France, Quintana shall return to France and conclude it for Ferdinand alone, upon conditions described, in such a way that the Emperor may hereafter enter it. Has not concluded a treaty with the Emperor and England for the invasion of France, as the King of France believes, and would on no condition sign such a treaty. Quintana, on returning from the Emperor, must wait, secretly, at the French Court, and write what he has done.

"Oratio ad excitandos contra Galliam Britannos, incerto authore." After insisting on topics common on such an occasion, the speaker proceeds to show that Ferdinand the King of Spain will not fail to assist his son-in-law; Maximilian will join, "alter nostri temporis Mavors," who had been a soldier from his cradle. He refers to the invasion of France and the defeat and death of the King of Scots in the previous year, to the battles of Ravenna and Novara, and to the increasing infirmities of the French King; whereas Henry is like the rising sun, that grows brighter and stronger every day.

[23 Jan.]P. Martyr. Epist. 535. 2595. [4666.] PETER MARTYR to LUD. FURTADO.
The Pope has received an embassy from the Duke of Milan, to the bitter exasperation of the French ambassador; who has left fierce as a lion. The Scotch have refused to allow Henry to interfere with the government, have deposed (exauctorarunt) the Queen, and taken away her infant son. He is making greater preparations than ever against France. On the 8th of this month of January came a nuncio from the Pope to Ferdinand, named Goleaz Butrigario. The Pope is on the alert to keep peace among Christian princes both out of duty and because of the threatening power of the Turk. * * * It is said the Queen of France is dead; by her mediation peace was frequently secured between the two kingdoms.

Wrote last on the ... month, ... a declamation found in this town ... And where in the "said letters" he advertised [the King that the] Ambassador of Spain and Qwynteyne were [gone to the Emperor; they] are not yet returned, and it is said that the Emperor [will return] within two or three days. His Council are full of business; all the world draweth hither. A resolution is expected from Rome, within eight days, of peace or war, with the Venetians. In the said letter mentioned the fire at Venice, in the principal part of the town called the "Ryvealte." The damage to houses and merchandise is inestimable and should induce the Venetians to peace. Since his last letter, has written a let[ter to the] Switzers, a copy of which he sends. States his reasons for doing so. When the King had newly crossed the sea [in his enter]pryse of France, "and on that other party the Swysser[s invaded] the Duchy of Bourgoyne, five gentlemen of the [country of] Ferrett, subjects to the Emperor, twayn of them ... and in the other three 'Branchaws,' as servants [unto your] Grace and enemies to France, enterprised [the winning of a] Castle called Castillion in the county o ... the hands of the Duke of Longv[ille] ... so be that twice the * * * [be]fore written, and where certain ... French unto the Swyssers at their ... siege of Dowgion, for the payment [of the 400,]000 crowns promised, one of the said hostages fled and ... was pursued by the Swyssers." One of the five gentlemen, however, followed the said hostage on his own account and took him prisoner. The hostage surrendered on condition that he should not be redelivered to the Switzers. They, however, hearing that the hostage had been taken, sent and demanded him as their prisoner; which being refused they desired the Emperor as their confederate to cause his subjects to deliver him up. The Emperor, to keep on good terms with the Switzers, wrote a sharp letter to the gentleman and desired him to deliver up the hostage upon pain of forfeiture. But one of the said gentlemen came to the Emperor and told him the true state of the case, which he had not before heard, and he then ordered him to take advice with Wingfield and send in his supplication to his Council. Having spoken with the Council the gentleman received a good answer and licence to depart; and at his desire Wingfield wrote the letter in question to the Switzers of which he sends a copy. The Emperor has moved with the Swiss, to have 10,000 of them and they not to take any appointment of [peace] without the knowledge and consent of him, you[r Grace and the] King of Aragon. When this "was pourp[osed to them] by the Emperor's Ambassador that is resident [there they appointed] a day of answer unto the 14th day of February; for [it is] this year so terribly cold in the mountains that a[fore that] day they could not commodiously assemble all the Ca[ntons]. Also I understand that the French make great pursuit [for] to go through with them for the appointment that w[as made at] Dowgion, and condescend to pay the sum appointed [but to] the renunciation of the titles of the Counte of Aste and th ... Genys they will not condescend in no wise, and the S[wyssers in no] wise will abridge any part of that which was apoyn[ted] ... the French menace to put all their merchants ou ... (which I think are but a few) and the Switzers menace th[em that if] they go not through with them before the first day ... they will not fail to enter into France; which m[enaces] shall in conclusion turn to the advancement of [your grace] and the damage of your enemies."

"[On the 24th of this] present month I wrote my last [letter] from this town; and where in the same [it is written] that Urreas, the ambassador of Spain, and [Qwynteyne were] not returned from the Emperor, as far as I [can learn,] at three audiences that the said Qwynteyne [had with the Emperor] there was no man present but only Urreas, and at the [said] audiences they were together four or five hours. [The said] Qwynteyne, after his return to this town, made [no stay] but departed without speaking with me; and now it is [said] that he came through France, and whether he ret[urns the same] way again or where he is become from hence I cannot [learn]. All which considered, if the Emperor advertise not yo[ur Grace] of his charge either by relation to me or by writing u[nto your Grace] I cannot think but some thing might be amended." Mentioned in a letter of the 12th that the bishop of Feltyrs, the P[ope's ambassador] here had delivered to the Emperor a brief and that he had [another in his] hands of the same nature for the Electors, which [the Emperor] desired he should retain until he knew his further pleasure, which the bp. did, "alw ... the Emperor's Council being here in his absence for a ... hath been delayed unto this day. And this after ... sent for me; and there Doctor Moota declared the [effect of the said] briefs and that the Emperor had desired them ... in his hands till deliberation might ... of them should be ... Council in that matter, to the intent ... rely perceive he would be loath to let any of ... [s]lip negligently that may redound not only to his own harm ... your Highness and his other confederates." Being "the principal of that congregation," Wingfield's advice was asked first, and he said he thought the Pope acted as a charitable father in sending of such briefs and exhortations of universal peace to all Princes and could have no intention of hindering the enterprises of the Emperor, England and Aragon in support of the Christian Religion and the See Apostolic; and, considering to whom the said briefs were directed, they should be "restrained of hasty course," provided the Pope were advertised by his Ambassador that the Emperor, by the fate of war having such business in hand as would be honourable to the Empire and helpful to his friends, it was very necessary that he should ask the Empire to advance the same; yet he thought from what had taken place before, "that if the said briefs were once delivered to the said Electors they might by the mean rather employ all their [wis]dom and power in words to induce the Emperor that he should ... the same way, which may be goodly prosecuted with less cost to the [whole Empy]re and peril of war, than to condescend any goodly ... in war, and so the Pope's brief should work ... and his confederates unbewares ... [preju]dice of the Church and the See Apostolic ... said briefs and so en[ded] ... All the residue of the Council which w ... concluded upon my saying, saving that ... to shew his learning, or to put some difficulty ... that in consideration, that the said briefs we[re expressly] decreed at the last session of the General Council [to be sent to all] Princes, he thought the stopping of them should ... taken of the Pope and College, howbeit considering ... consent of the Council upon the grounds premised ... right necessary, that the said briefs should be restrained [and] the Pope's holiness advertised of the cause and so that mat[ter en]ded, saving in the end I showed as matter to be added ... saying, that the restraint of the said briefs should g ... whether the Pope's principal desire is that an uni[versal peace to] the honor and profit of the Emperor, your Grace [and the King] of Aragon that hath recovered the state of the Ch[urch] ... for after the first sence he shall be right well conten[t that the] sending of the said briefs be delayed, and if so be he [taketh their] retaining grievously it is well to be thought that the ... were rather depeschid in the favour of France than for t[he peace] of Christendom.

From Cardinal Cornaro, Corneto, 27 Jan.—The Pope will declare for the Signory and expects answer from Spain within four days. He will prolong for another year the league he made with the Swiss in March last. * * * The French ambassador says his King will remit to the Pope his difference with England and others de jure. The Pope wishes this remission to be de jure et de facto, and the Ambassador has written to France for a mandate. The King of Spain labours to make peace between France and England.

The confession of three prisoners taken in the Bonne Adventure, galleon of Dieppe, 45 tons, by the Barke of Sandwich and the John Baptyst, 28 Jan.
The master, Rogerin le Tort, says that the French King has sent 50 ships to Bordeaux to bring wine to Picardy; that the Duke of Albany, as far as he knows, is at Roune; that he will have 20 ships and 1,000 men, with victuals, wine, &c., to go to Scotland soon after Candlemas, and that preparations were being made three weeks ago. The counter master, Josepe Pan, of Rouen, says that all the ships of war that had gone out were commanded to return in five weeks, four of which have expired; about Albany, he says as above, and that the great galleon of Dieppe is ready for war. The third man, a carpenter of Dieppe, says the same as the others.

At the request of the King's servant Johane W ..., returning to the King, had taken into his service his attendant, Roger Pantter. After the field of Ravenna, took to his service Will. Foster, who was there with the Spaniards and had been spoiled by the French of all he had. And in August last came Ranalde Chamber, late a spear at Calais, desiring to be in his service. Took the two former as footmen; but told the latter that, as he had been servant to the King and his father, he should remain as a friend for one year. About 20 Jan. Foster informed him that Chamber proposed their going to France to Richard De la Pole, or else to Sir Geo. Nevill that he might bring them to the said Richard. Has committed Chambre and Pantter to prison in a castle where he has, by the Pope's grant, plenary jurisdiction; and Chambre has confessed that he proposed to take service in the French camp because the King had taken from him his living. Will have them further examined and send the result. Rome, 31 Jan. 1513. Signed.

Lettres de Louis XII., iv., 257. 2609. [4831.] INSTRUCTIONS to [SPINELLY].
1. The King is apprised of the good counsel taken by Madame for the recovery of the stelle briefs from the hands of the German foot. 2. As the King understands there is neutrality on both sides, contrary to the treaty and promise of the Emperor, and that the French have no force to invade, Madame ought to discharge the remaining foot and a good part of the horse, retaining the principal men, by means of whom the force can be reconstituted to be of service to the King at his coming. 3. Madame ought also to discharge a number of gentlemen, who are at home the most part of the time, as appeared by the musters, on which subject Thomas [Spinelly] is charged to speak plainly to Madame. 4. Is to demand that the six courtaulx lent for the war of Gueldres be brought to Antwerp, and delivered to William Copelande's servant. 5. To declare that the King has again written to the Pope and the Venetians of the advancement of the treaty between the Emperor and them. 6. To deliver the safe-conduct for the subjects "de par delà." 7. To tell her that for her sake the King has appointed some of his Council to treat for the ransom of the Vice-Admiral of France [René de Clermont]. 8. To thank her for her secret advertisements, and request her to continue them. 9. That the King is making preparations for the performance of all promises touching the continuance of war, and the celebration of the marriage at Calais, and hopes she will do the like. 10. For a more special declaration of his will in all these matters, and to know her opinion, he will shortly send to her the Lord Lysley with others in special embassy. 11. To request that English money shall be current in the Low Countries at the rate of 30 sous Fl. to the pound sterling, otherwise the King will have to delay payment of the garrisons out of Tournay. 12. That the King has been lately visited by a malady named the smallpox, but is now recovered and out of danger.

When in London paid his respects to his two patrons, the Archbishop and Mountjoy. Intended to have made a present to the King's almoner, now bishop of Lincoln; but, being disgusted with London and deeming it unsafe to stay there in consequence of the plague, he put it off to another time. When Erasmus was in London the King was sick at Richmond, viz. on Saturday last, but the physician said he had escaped all danger. The Bishop of Chieti (Theatinus), papal nuncio, is now in London to negotiate for peace; but in vain. "Is magis, ni fallor, suum aget negocium quam nostrum." It is rumoured that Margaret daughter of Maximilian shall marry the new Duke (fn. 4) whom the King lately "ex Dama procerem fecit." Next May the King crosses the sea to marry his sister Mary to our Prince. Has sent back the horse. Compliments to Greanus. 1515.
Vitell. B. IV., 104. B.M. 2611. [4598.] [FOX and WOLSEY] to the BP. OF WORCESTER. (fn. 5)
Thank him for kindness in times past. Have seen by the Pope's briefs sent to divers prelates in England his desire for a universal peace, and his request to have an answer from the King of England, of which answer, "sent by this courier," Master Andreas sends a copy. The King is desirous to oblige the Pope in all things. The writers ("We twain qui non solum in hac sanctissima causa verum in omnibus aliis sumus semper unius animi," &c.) protest that the Pope may count upon them as his instruments here. Worcester is to negociate the business, which will sooner come to good effect than if it were treated by great persons, "with their morose gravities, great pomps, ceremonies, and solemnities." The Cardinal of York, who has been so long the King's ambassador at that court, cannot be sent as legate a latere, either to the Emperor or to England, without suspicion; nor is the King willing to admit a legate into England or Calais; and therefore the Pope must provide that, in case he be sent as legate into Germany, he be not allowed to exercise that authority in all places where the Emperor may chance to be. For the Cardinal of York writes that the King and the Emperor are to meet at Calais in May, and he shall be there with the Emperor as legate. Moreover, as the Bp. of Feltri is the papal ambassador with the Emperor and the Bp. of Civita in England, the Pope can employ them in negociating the peace; nor does the petition of the Lateran Council, "qua petitur ut mittantur legati et nuncii," prevent this arrangement. If the Emperor agrees, the King of France may be persuaded to send an ambassador to England, for the same purpose; or both powers may send to Calais or some neutral spot; but it is expedient that peace first of all be concluded between the Emperor and the Venetians. The King has sent them an admonition by Sir Rob. Wingfield, his ambassador with the Emperor, of which Andreas forwards a copy.

The charge that I, Robert Baron, "servant to Sir Thomas Spynelly, knight," have upon my credence to declare to the lords of the King's Council.
1. To ask for letters necessary "upon mine instructions"; 2, their favor for Cotingham, which the King "granted him, now at his being in the parts beyond the sea, for his brother"; 3, to explain the great charges; 4, to recover 50l. due to him for the half year ended Christmas last.
In Spinelly's hand, p. 1.
Have received from Artoys, king at arms, letters from the Emperor, not sealed and in French, informing them of the treaty between the Emperor and England, by which whoever makes war on either, becomes the enemy of both. He has accordingly declared the Scots to be enemies, and closed his ports against them, giving them four months to collect their goods and leave his dominions. Remind them of the long duration of their friendship. Privileges were granted to the Scotch merchants by Philip, count of Flanders, 16 Dec. 1427, at Leyden, and confirmed by the towns of Gandt, Bruges, Ypres, and the Abbot of St. Andrew near Bruges. Send Unicorn to know whether they intend this friendship to continue or whether they intend to declare them enemies. Their merchants are well treated in Scotland, as Unicorn will declare.

Have received from Artoys, king at arms, letters not sealed and in French, contrary to custom. They are so unlike his style, that the peers have determined not to answer them singly until they are certain that they are from the Emperor. If they are, will answer them with the attention they deserve. Hope that he will continue to consider them his friends, as the House of Burgundy is still in alliance with them. Look up to him as a father and protector.
