21 Nov. 3458. TOURNAY.
Note of the representation made by deputies of Mons. Ponmick, (fn. 1) lieutenant general of the King, to the Consaulx, that we know that as soon as the King came to the town the commonalty made oath of fealty, although some did the contrary. And lately peace has been made by which towns and places remain subject to him in whose hands they were at the date of the treaty; so that this town and city remain in the King's hands. The oaths of fealty must therefore be renewed.
Marginal note that the Consaulx have always been faithful to their oath, and if they knew any who have done otherwise they would punish them.

Thanks him for a noble present of horses to him and his wife, which has made him of consequence in the eyes of his countrymen. Sends him in return 12 brood mares, as he has learned from Sir Griffith Don that the King is very fond of horses. One of these mares has been broken in. If the King will send yearly into Italy, he shall have the pick of the Marquis's stables. Mantua, 21 Nov. 1514. Signed: El vostro schiavo e servitor, el Marchese de Mantua.

On Monday, the 13th inst., the jousts began, and continued four days. My Lord of Suffolk and he ran three days, and lost nothing. One Frenchman was slain at the tilt, and divers horses. On Saturday the 18th, "the tournay and course in the field began as roughly as ever I saw; for there was divers times both horse and man overthrown, horses slain, and one Frenchman hurt that he is not like to live. My Lord of Suffolk and I ran but the first day thereat, but put our ayds thereto, because there was no noblemen to be put unto us, but poor men of arms and Scots, many of them were hurt on both sides, but no great hurt, and of our Englishmen none overthrown nor greatly hurt but a little of their hands. The Dolphyn himself was a little hurt on his hand." On Tuesday, the 21st, the fighting on foot began, "to the which they brought an Almayn that never came into the field before, and put him to my Lord of Suffolk to have put us to shame if they could, but advantage they gat none of us, but rather the contrary. I forbear to write more of our chances, because I am party therein. I ende[d] without any manner hurt; my Lord of Suffolk is a little hurt in his hand." The King's matters go forward well; and on Monday or Tuesday they intend to depart to return to England. The French King sends Mons. La Guysse to the [King] in embassy, "and to lie there still. He hath [been] there before time. The Dolphin sen[dith] ... Bonyvette to his Grace with horses and ... which Bonyvette is one of his secret serv[ants, and] I think he shall come in our company."
[What follows is in Dorset's own hand.] The Queen continues her goodness and wisdom, and increases in the favor of her husband and the Privy Council. She "as scoyde to my lorde a Suffehok and me tha[t] the gynke her husbande scoyde her that my lorde a Sofehoke and I dyde same (shame) aule Franse, and that vhy s ... gary (should carry ?) the prynse (prize ?) in tho Ingland."

Has received his loving letters by a man of Dacre's, 22nd Nov. She and her party were in great trouble till they knew what help Henry would give them; but having shown the letters to the lords then in Stirling Castle they were greatly comforted. Her adversaries continue to usurp the King's authority in Parliament, holding her and her adherents rebels. Begs Henry to hasten his army by sea and land, especially against the Chamberlain, who is "post of this conspiration." Within this se'nnight he appropriated an escheat of a bastardy, value 10,000l., as if he had the sole authority. The prior of St. Andrew's on the other side has laid siege to the Castle of St. Andrew's. Hopes Henry's navy will come to the rescue; for it lies by the sea side opposite "Berwyk be North." Has sent her husband to raise the siege this 23rd day. If not speedily relieved her funds will fail. Spends a thousand a day in wages. The enemy trust entirely to the coming of Albany. If he arrive before Henry's army, some of her party may incline to him from dread. Will keep this castle with her children till she hear from Henry. Some of the lords who fear their land will be destroyed by the invasion had better be assured from Henry to the contrary. The King and his younger brother prosper, and are "recht lyfe-like children." The enemy intend to besiege her in Stirling. Desires therefore that the Chamberlain "was haldin waking" in the mean time with the Borderers. She can defend herself well against the others till the English army come. Begs credence be given to Master Adam Williamson, and he be thanked for his services and for the peril he was in, in the ship that was broken with other three ships, which left Scotland before his, with Lion herald and other messengers, sent by the adverse lords to Albany, with letters under the Great Seal, which they detain and use "as they were kings." Has given St. Andrew's to the postulate of Arbroath, her husband's uncle. Begs Henry to write to the Pope in his favor. Desires letters from him every month at least as to his purposes; "and giff my party adversare counterfettes ony letteris in my name, or giff yai compell me to write to zou for concord ye subscription salbe bott yus: Margaret R. & na mare"; which will show that she has been forced.

Since the writing of his "other" letters a packet of letters and instructions had arrived from the King. Being on the point of dispatching other matters they judge it best to proceed, and not to join those matters and the other together. [Thus far in a clerk's hand; the rest in Dorset's own.] The first time Suffolk broke with the French King of their charge he desired Dorset to help him and spoke only of Navarre, "to see how he would take it, and to prove further his mind and see what we could get of him; who byhawfe (behaved) him with marvellous good words touching our master, but nothing to the purpose of Navarre, but ever to grope us and know the uttermost of our minds.

"Articles à Mons. de la Guiche pour respondre de par Monseigneur à Mons. le Duc de Suffort touchant le voyage d'Espaigne dont il a este question que le Roy d'Engleterre veult entreprendre."
1. My said lord expects, if the King is pleased that he make the said voyage, to be chief of the whole army. My lord has spoken with Suffolk that if the King of England would prepare his army for the said voyage he (my lord) should have the raising of 8,000 lanceknights. Also the King of England would have to furnish the pay of 5,000 or 6,000 French, and 10,000 Englishmen with a band of artillery and everything necessary to besiege towns or to give battle. As to horsemen my lord is certain that the King will keep his promise to the King of England, and my lord promises to bring 300 or 400 men-at-arms of his own. My lord expects the King of England will send him full powers. He has given charge to La Guiche to arrange prelimaries as to the place of landing, the road, &c. La Guiche may tell them, if the voyage is undertaken, that the county of Biscay belongs to Mons. d'Alençon. My lord is much pleased at the message conveyed by Suffolk from the King of England touching a good and sure amity between the Princes, and has charged La Guiche to thank the King of England and assure him that there is none but his own sovereign whom he would more readily serve. All these things he is to communicate to Suffolk and no one else.

Answer of Louis XII. to the propositions made to him by the Duke of Suffolk, on the part of Henry VIII., touching the kingdom of Navarre.
Thanks for sending him so important a personage as the Duke. Professes to deal frankly with him, and give him his answer on the two following propositions:—(1) How far he will assist England in expelling the King of Aragon from Navarre, considering that he has broken his engagements with Henry and Louis. (2) That as the kingdom of Castile, by right, should descend to sisters, and the King of England claims one part, how far Louis will assist him in claiming his rights. With regard to the question of right, Louis can give no certain answer, because he does not know the laws of the kingdom of Spain; but without entering upon this he is willing to join the King in prosecuting his claims and expelling Ferdinand from Navarre, and will raise an army with him for that purpose. But, without disclosing their intentions, each King is to hear the ambassadors of Aragon. England and France shall communicate by their ambassadors upon this matter without concealment on either side. No arrangement shall be made without mutual consent. In return Suffolk is to explain to the King of England the history of the claim of Louis to the duchy of Milan, of which a brief is given; is to request the aid of England in its recovery, and a loan for one year of 200,000 crowns, on good security. He hopes the enterprise will be ready by the month of March. Paris, 26 Nov. 1514.

3481. [5641.] DACRE to the COUNCIL.
Received their letters on the 19th, at 11 p.m., with a packet for the Queen of Scots, which reached her on Wednesday, the 22nd, at Stirling. Encloses her answer. She durst not make superscription. She was taken from Stirling to Edinburgh, by Arran and the Chamberlain, and received there by the Chancellor and the Council; "albeit whenas they had her there they yode clear from her ways, and so she withdrew herself, be wisdom, from Edinburgh to Striveling on the said Tuesday, and the Earl of Angus with her." Hepburn, Prior of St. Andrew's, has besieged the castle there, wherein her servants lie. News of this came while Dacre's servant was with her; and Angus immediately rode with 600 of her household servants to the rescue. Nothing has been heard of Lyon Herald, that "yode" in James Wood's ship to France, with "their comprehension," in Sept. last. Other ships that sailed in his company are gone and returned; so that it is thought he is drowned. A herald named Marche has come from France "for ratification of their comprehension," which it is thought by Arran will be sent to Albany to do as he likes. With the herald, Albany sent a commission claiming to inherit the castle of Dunbar as part of the earldom of Marche. The Bp. of Murray has sent by letter to his brother, keeper of the castle, to deliver it. The earldom of Marche, except the said castle, is in the Queen's feoffment. There was never so much lawlessness in Scotland as now. Kirkoswald, 27 Nov. Signed.

Is sorry to learn by the Pope's brief, dated the _ (blank) of this month, that his request to have the collectorship bestowed upon Andreas Ammonius has been misrepresented, as though it had been unduly extorted. The suggestion is the more offensive as it proceeds from him who never ceases to annoy the King. Will not insist on N.'s (Cardinal Hadrian's) want of fidelity, or the calumny and infamy which he has endeavoured to bring on the Bishop of Worcester, or the coldness with which he has received the announcement of the King's league with France; but the Pope must not be surprised if he (N.) is punished for such offences.

3495. [5542.] WOLSEY to MY LORD [BP. OF WORCESTER].
Thanks him for his letters and the credence by Mr. Andreas, as by his lordship's means the Pope and Cardinals have remitted to Wolsey 2,000 ducats of the annates of Lincoln. Wolsey intends to take as much money of my lord of Rochester and St. John's, whom the King is now sending in embassy there, as the 2,000 ducats amount to, trusting that they shall receive the ducats there. "As touching such stuff as ye [have receiv]ed to mine use out of the hands of Mr. Paxe, [I request you to] sell of the same all the apparel for [the late Ca]rdinal's body, with the scarlet and [red clo]the; and the altar cloths, vestments and tapestry [send to] me into England by ship or otherwise as ye [shall think] most best. Further, my lord, I beseech you to [make my h]umble commendations to the Pope's holiness ... hon]orable and diligent solicitation ... will to make me cardinal. My [very good lord, I] thank you for the same." * * *

S.P. Hen. VIII.,

Begs to be commended to my lord of York [Wolsey], for whose constant favor he is grateful. The Pope has great hopes of Wolsey's effecting a peace between the French King and the Duke of Milan. He can do nothing more pleasing to the Pope, or more worthy of himself; and shall have the 20,000 crowns already written of, if he can effect it. The Pope was about to send him a small present, in the name of the Duke of Milan, worth 1,000 crowns, but the writer told him it would be difficult to transmit it, and secretly impossible. The money will therefore be sent to the person addressed, to purchase what he knows will be most pleasing to Wolsey. Touching the annates of the see of Lincoln, besides those 1,000 ducats which the Pope remitted, they have at length extorted another 1,000 from the College, after much opposition of the Cardinals; especially from Hadrian, who speaks much evil of Wolsey, conceiving that Wolsey has opposed him in the collectorship. When he saw they would get the remission, he bought over witnesses to affirm that he had been working hard for Wolsey in the affair; which would be very true if that "pro" were turned into "contra." The money cannot be sent thither without loss by exchange. Wolsey may be able to find some persons in England who would pay it and receive it here. Joannes Campuccius will secure them.
Sends the inventory of the things he had received from Pace for Wolsey. Wishes to know what to do with them. Is urgent for the cardinal's hat. His Holiness is naturally slow. Will not create Wolsey a cardinal alone now, nor yet with those whom he promised before. Offers him a bull of promotion, on condition he will not carry the insignia publicly. Letters should be written to the Pope and the Cardinal de Medicis. The Pope is very glad that the French King has promised Wolsey the resignation of the bishopric of Tournay; and assents to the commendam in spite of the Lateran Council. Advises Wolsey, however, not to expedite his bulls till he gets the hat, which will save him some thousands. Sends the bull declaring his (Worcester's) innocence and will shortly send the process. Has forgiven Pace as desired. Has received his correspondent's letter touching Wolsey's pleasure in this matter.

3497. [5465.] WOLSEY [to the BISHOP OF WORCESTER].
Thanks him for the great pains to which he is put in expediting Wolsey's bulls and his diligent solicitation with the Pope for the cardinalate, which, at the King's desire and his lordship's mediation, the Pope has by brief promised the King at the next creation. Begs he will thank his Holiness, and there is nothing he shall desire that Wolsey will not be willing to serve him. Knows not how he shall recompense his lordship, and will in all respects advance his honour and profit. Is glad to hear of his honorable acquittal in the slander of great malice laid to his charge, as much as if it had been himself; "and with like ardent mind shall I persecute those that thus maliciously hath accused you as though thay had semblably laid the same thing to my charge; and, as I have more at the large showed to Mr. Andreas, pursue ye for their punishment there, and I sh[all] not fail to do my part here with the King in such wise that all the world shall take ensample how to infame a King's ambassador and orator." Andreas will inform him of the King's letters. Will be glad to know what he can do for him. "And if by your politic handling the Pope can be induced shortly to make me cardinal ye shall singularly content and please the King; for I cannot express how desirous the King is to have me advanced to the said honor to the intent that not only men might thereby perceive how much the Pope favoreth the King and such as he entirely loveth, but also that thereby I shall be the more able to do his grace service." Desires Worcester to inquire privately if the French King has used his influence with the Pope in this behalf as he has frequently promised, though he had much rather obtain it by the influence of the King and Worcester. Commits the rest to Worcester's discreet handling. Knows he has done his best for the expedition of the bulls and remission of the annates. Is grateful for the remission of 1,000 ducats procured by Worcester; howbeit every one thinks it strange that two annates in one year should be demanded of one bishopric against both law and custom. Hopes the Pope and cardinals will make restitution when they perceive that he has received no more of Lincoln than is mentioned in the instruments lately sent to Worcester. "Some men that loveth you not here be very glad that I am thus dealt with." Andreas will write to him Wolsey's mind touching the Duke of Milan's affairs. Desires Worcester to get the Pope to sequester to Wolsey's behalf, Bainbridge's goods now in the custody of Richard Paxe, levy as much money as may be made thereon and send the proceeds to Wolsey. Worcester is quite at liberty, without breach of the King's laws, to send a citation against Mr. Clerke now on his way toward England, "one of the most malicious conspirators against you." He may also rely on the assistance of the King and Wolsey in prosecuting all who malign him. "From my place besides Westminster, the, &c."
