From Andrea Badoer, [London,] 16 Sept.—An ambassador named _ (blank) (fn. 1) had come from the Emperor and declared that the King did wrong to break promise with the Emperor's grandson, the Archduke of Burgundy, and marry Lady Mary to the King of France, who is the Emperor's enemy. The King answered that it was the Emperor who failed to keep faith, receiving so many thousands of ducats to maintain the war with France and doing nothing; with other words of blame, so that the Ambassador took leave and departed. In view of the marriage and the small account made of his King, the Spanish ambassador has absented himself from Court and removed from London. Preparations for departure of the Queen of France. The King would escort her ten miles to sea in the galley bearing his name. (fn. 2) The Queen of Scotland, his sister, has married a baron of Scotland called _ (blank), (fn. 3) who will govern for her son.
[Note by Sanuto that the Sages, on 30 Oct., decided to write to Badoer of the new successes against the Spaniards, and capture of Bergamo.]

After his business with Lady Margaret, as he has already written, the Deputy of Calais came to the Court. Went to Ghent, to show his letters patent to the Prince's Council, though advised not, because the people were furious; then to the Council of the town. Found both favorable; the latter required him to attend Monsr. de Fynys, Governor of Flanders, who promised all help to Wolsey, and sent three gentlemen who spoke Latin to keep Sampson company, with dishes of meat and wine both white and claret. Came to Bruges yesterday; had an interview with the Council. Called the officers together, and shewed his powers of administration. Finds a new vicar general has been appointed by the other Bishop. If Wolsey can procure letters from the French King he will find all of them at his service. Bruges, 16 Sept. 1514.

Considering the Church of Tournay deserted by L. elect of Tournay, Leo, at the instance of Henry king of England, appointed Wolsey, then bp. of Lincoln, to be administrator until the return of the said L. Perhaps doubting that the said administration ceases by reason of Leo's translation of him to the church of York, he has now made petition to have it confirmed or renewed; and, therefore, it is hereby confirmed to him. 16 Sept. 1514, anno. 2.

After coming to Bruges, "as I had [before in] Gaunt, by my letters patents, [I] desired the favor and aid [of the lords] of the town, which [I found nothing favorable]; and on Sat[urday] last I called the officers of the b[ishop together], showing them both the Pope's brief and also the letters patent of my Lady Margaret." They have this day demanded advice upon the matter from the Council. Thinks the French King has not kept his promise. "The bishop elect h[ath made] for all Flanders both an other vicar general and also [a] receiver," and has received the profits of the past year in France. "He had ordained his officers str[ong]ly to resist when I should come. They had ryd[ily] their a[ppel]lations made with other remedies os strong os be the law possybyll myght be mad, which this day when we assembled [they] showed expressly." If he had executed the process against them with rigor it would have caused "commotion among the people whom they had before provoked." The French King must write, charging the bishop elect not to resist Wolsey's administration. If it be referred to law Wolsey will have great trouble and no profit from it. Has given them to St. Martin's day to take counsel with the bishop elect, on condition that he do not meanwhile return to take possession. He has a dispensation for non-residence, studii causâ. Objections made to the brief. Bruges, 18 Sept. 1514.

From Lorenzo Pasqualigo to his brothers, London, 23 Sept. _ No talk of war, everyone for two months past being occupied with entertainments and jousting in honour of the departure of the Queen. She left four days ago for Dover, accompanied by the Treasurer, Chamberlain, Chancellor and Lord Stanley. Describes the train, the Queen herself, her jewels, &c. About a week ago the merchants of all nations went to Court and took leave of her. She will cross to Boulogne, while the King of France comes to Abbeville. The Spanish ambassador has not attended any of the festivities but keeps to his house; because, if he goes about the town, strange words are said to him.

Has written to him before. Delays execution of his breve to avoid danger, but will execute it if Wolsey insists. As he has written already, thinks it would be wise if the French King's favor were secured. He is of greater authority with them than their own Prince, especially as they are set against the English because of this change. The officers can meet nowhere except at Bruges and Ghent; the pestilence is so great at Tournay. Also the country of Flanders has got the high court of the diocese removed to Bruges. The profits of the last year are lost, except Wolsey demands them of the bishop elect. The money was paid into France at Midsummer last. Bruges, 23 Sept. 1514.

[Summary of a letter received 25 Oct. 1514.]
From Nicolo di Favri to Francesco Gradenigo, London, 24 Sept.—Sent, through the Pope's ambassador, a copious sheet of news together with the Ambassador's (Badoer's) letters to the Signory; but near Cologne the messenger was assaulted and his letters thrown into the water. In it wrote of ambassadors being here from the Emperor, the Duke of Milan, the Pope (his came incognito and never let himself be seen here), France (two), and the Marquis of Mantua (one who brought a present of horses); and also of the departure of these ambassadors and the hardships endured by Badoer in following the Court. In Brittany the English fleet captured some French ships and burnt 26 deserted villages. Finally, Badoer urging a nine months' truce, the King recalled his fleet.
The above news was in the lost letter. Describes proclamation in London, 11 Aug., of a peace which had been negociated by Longueville while prisoner. A marriage was also concluded for the King's sister. She had been before promised to the Prince of Castile, and money had been advanced as her dower and triumphs prepared at Calais in May [last]; but now, early on Sunday, 13 Aug., a nobleman brought invitation to Badoer to a Court wedding, and carried him by barge to Greenwich, where he witnessed Mary's marriage by proxy to the King of France. Describes in detail the ceremonies, dresses, and subsequent rejoicings. In the state procession Badoer was paired with the Abp. of Canterbury. At the ball the King, the Duke of Buckingham and other lords danced. The Pope's two ambassadors came to dinner, but neither witnessed the marriage nor attended the ball. Departure of Longueville on the morrow, 14 Aug. On 29 Aug. the lord of St. John's and Lord Chamberlain left London in embassy to France; and were perhaps going on to Rome and Venice. They are great friends of Badoer's, as also is the Bp. of Durham, who will be one of those who accompany the Queen, when she leaves on 5 Oct. and will afterwards proceed to Rome and Venice. Describes a reported scene between the Prince of Castile and his Councillors when news of this marriage arrived. Shows how Spain and the Emperor both broke faith with Henry. On 14 Sept. arrived an ambassador, Mons. Dansi (fn. 6), from France, and on the morrow went to Court preceded by a white horse bearing presents. Preparations in France, as written by the Lord of St. John's. It is said that France has given this Queen for dowry the duchy of Milan and this King would like her to have it.

All the officers of the Bishop elect who are Flemings opposed him on his arrival at Bruges, as he had already written; and the people were so much excited against the English by news of the change of the marriage that they would have attacked him had he shown any asperity, in spite of his letters from the Emperor and Lady Margaret. Was obliged therefore to conceal his intentions. On presenting the Apostolic Bulls, with the Prince's letters patent and Wolsey's commission, they raised their bristles, made many objections, and asked further delay, which he was forced to concede, and treat them gently to gain their good wishes. Will summon them in four days, and, if he does not hear from Wolsey, will say he has received letters urging immediate proceedings. If they prosecute an appeal, it will be necessary to gain the favor of the King of France. The consequences of such a step. The farms and possessions of the bishopric are all at Tournay; the revenues for the last year have been paid to the Elect. Is, therefore, at a loss to know what to do. Had it not been so, could have prohibited payment. If he has the administration for the future, thinks he can devise a way to make it more profitable than it ever has been. Bruges, 24 Sept. 1514.

Could not deliver these letters in person, being unprepared to ride, but will be with him to-morrow or next day. Sends the Bp. of Worcester's letters of the 31 Aug., but has himself received more recent letters, of the 12th inst. Some trick has been played. The first ought to have been brought by the messenger who brought Pace's letters. Thinks this has been done by the enemies of Worcester, and that the surgeon had been suborned to say that the dead man confessed the poison. The priest was a madman. Worcester's chamberlain was pressed by many examinations, and not a scintilla of suspicion was discovered. If the Pope believed it, he never would have ordered Worcester to celebrate the mass at Sancta Maria de Populo for the news of peace, when his Holiness and many of the cardinals lighted bonfires. Hadrian refused to show any joy on the occasion, saying he was the Imperial protector. Great hopes of the cardinal's hat, not for the annates of Lincoln. Will explain more when he sees him.

After the priest who poisoned Cardinal Bainbridge had killed himself, it was necessary that process should be commenced against Worcester and one of his chamberlains. As it was concluded that the priest's first confession must be believed, the judges had determined that the Bishop should be put in prison and subjected to torture. This would have been done, but Pace would not consent till he knew the King's mind. "Notwithstanding this my demeanour the said Bishop doth imagine, both in word and deed, the worst he can against me, presupposing surely to have your Grace's favor in this cause, and by that to avoid all thing now imputed unto him." Begs the King will determine impartially in the matter. Pace desires his honesty may appear unto all men. Was desirous of showing himself faithful to his master. Had he not endeavoured to seek out the murderers, every one might have supposed he had consented with the Bishop. Is sorely grieved that Worcester should defame the late Cardinal. "For though my late lord had (I cannot deny) some vices, [yet] (I do take God to my judge) he was the most faithful man to your Grace, his prince, that ev[er was] born, and most vehement in the defence ... of your Grace's causes, when none other man durst open his mouth to speak, save he alone." Pace and Worcester's proceedings are very different; Worcester seeks to gain favor by effusion of money; Pace desires nothing but justice. Has not deserved his malice, as he was always friendly to the Bishop until he was accused of Bainbridge's death, and found to be an enemy to England. Rome, 25 Sept.

Has written fully to Burbanke of the poisoning of Cardinal Bainbridge and the process in that matter. The Pope has been inquiring about Wolsey, stating "that they did labor in England for to make your grace cardinal." Thinks it necessary for the interest of the nation that the King should have one or two cardinals resident in Rome, as other princes have, their influence being so important in the creation of the Pope. Can inform Wolsey what persons at Rome must be won over not to impede his election. Rome, 25 Sept.

"Francis Duke of Valois and of Bretaigne and 9 others, in honor of the coming of the Princess Mary, sister to King Henry VIIIth, erected in the Rue St. Anthoine near the Tournelles a Triumphant Arch supported by 5 great Pillars, unto which 5 shields were fastened. Whereof—1st. One was of Silver, which whosoever touched was admitted to run 4 Courses with a lance, and a 5th pour la Dame if he required it. 2nd. Who touched the Golden Shield, was admitted to one Course with the Lance and coups d'espé sans nombres. 3rd. Who touched the Black Shield was admitted to fight on foot with a Lance or Pike, and afterwards with a single sword. 4th.

They that touched the Grey Shield which the Defendants should keep against all comers with the Arms above mentioned."
On back in same hand: "All which was remitted to the discretion of the said Judges. Upon the Interior part of the said Arch space was left for the shields of the Assailants which were in number 150 or more.
