3583. [5788.] JOHN ORUM, Abbot, and the CONVENT OF ST. MARY'S, DUBLIN, to SIR THOMAS [BUTLER] OF ORMOND.
Have received his letter, by the hand of his servant Thomas, accusing them of defrauding his lordship of such goods as were in the keeping of the abbot's predecessor. Denies the accusation. Has examined his brethren in the strictest way, and finds that none of them had part in putting away the said goods. The abbot, on the day of his decease, disclosed to the writer nothing more than four nobles, received from William Bermyngham of Luske, Ormond's receiver, for which they are accountable. Begs he will write to "the worshipful lord Dean" of the college of St. Patrick's, Dublin, to withdraw the suit, which is very chargeable to the writer's house. St. Mary Abbay by Dulyng, 13 Nov.

Thanks him for his loving handling of all his causes there, and will be glad to advance his interests from time to time, as he doubts not "your counsellors' letters" will report. They have diligently pursued your great matter of Whytby. He will perceive by the King's letters what order is taken therein; and his counsellors can inform him what Wolsey has done in this matter. "And, my lord, very glad I am that ye handle yourself so wisely and substantially in the King's causes committed to you; wherewith his grace is not only singularly pleased, but also ye have given me courage and boldness to pursue it to his Highness to commit other great things to you, which shall greatly redound to the increase of your honour in time to come; whereof no man shall be gladder than I, trusting that ye will be of semblable and no less good will towards me at all times."

"Instructiones ex parte venerandi patris guardiani I[erosolym] fratri Johanni de Sancto Martino procuratori Terr S[anct ad] potentissimum et serenissimum dominum, dominum Henricum [viij] Anglorum regem et reginalem majestatem ejus consortem." 1. He shall represent to the King that since his coronation his renown has been spread above all his predecessors for his numerous victories; that inevitable ruin will fall upon the Holy places unless he adopts methods for their security, for which no one is so fit, from his excellence both of body and mind ("tam proceritate corporis quam etiam virtute animi"). 2. That the Christian King of Georgia ("rex Courgiorum") living in the Eastern Mountains, between the Turk and Hysmail Sophi, has not scrupled, by the aid of Abunazar Campso el Gauri, to cast down the altar of the Latin Christians on Mount Calvary, for the repair of which they have paid the Sultan more than 1,000 ducats. 3. They have had to bribe the emir of Jerusalem, the caliphs of Gaza, R. ..., and other officers of the Saracens, with robes of velvet, silk and scarlet, &c., to secure the pilgrims visiting the Sepulchre. 4. They are at great annual expense for the maintenance of the churches of St. Mary, Bethlehem, of the Holy Sepulchre, of the Holy Chamber of Sion, of St. Mary's in the Valley of Jehoshaphat, with 40 lamps continually burning in the Holy Places, each costing 7 ducats per annum for the support of 40 brethren, to the sum of 3,500l. ducats per annum. 5. Their previous benefactors, the King of Naples, the Duke of Milan, Philip and Charles of Burgundy, each of whom gave 1,000 ducats annually, are dead, and they have no support except 1,000 ducats assigned upon Sicily by the late Queen of Spain. The merchants who used to maintain them can no longer visit Egypt or Syria for spices, because the way has been intercepted by Emmanuel king of Portugal. 9. Hope the King, in consideration of the above, will nominate some proctor in his realm for their maintenance against that great day of account which the Lord shall hold near His tomb in the valley of Jehoshaphat.

Egerton MS. 544, f. 153. B.M. 3591. FERDINAND KING OF ARAGON to [BERNARD DE MESA]. (fn. 3)
You must, upon opportunity, as of yourself, insinuate to the King of England, my son, that although the King of France may for the present keep what he has promised until he sees whether he can recover Milan, it is of the nature of Frenchmen that they will not let Tournay be lost without doing their utmost to recover it. The said (sic) marriage of the King's sister with the King of France will be no obstacle; for the French will no more regard that relationship than the King of Scots did. Tell him likewise how necessary and advantageous is the amity of the Emperor and King of Aragon; for as long as France knows that the Emperor, England and Aragon are leagued together he will keep promise with him; and, from what you learnt when in France, the said (sic) peace and marriage is disliked and would never have been made but to avoid destruction. This must be so spoken as not to seem intended to make discord between the Kings, for my only wish is to keep the King of England from leaving the Emperor and me. You shall say also that it is notorious what efforts France made to treat with Ferdinand separately, who always declined to treat without the Emperor and England and would not even disturb this agreement between England and France when he knew it was being made. You shall say also that, to gain merit before God and glory above all princes, what the King should seek more than life is the general peace of Christians and war against the Infidels, to which the King of France's attempts to recover Milan are the only impediment, and therefore he should move the King of France to leave Milan and Italy in peace. The Turk is now so prosperous and powerful, with his victory against the Sophi, that it is thought he will prepare for war on Christians in the coming summer.
You shall tell the King that having learnt that the King of France asks a small number of Englishmen for the enterprise of Milan, I beg him to consider whether it is fitting that the King of France should have in his army Englishmen in an inferior position, because of their small number, to the men of other nations, and whether it is safe in view of the ancient and natural enmity between French and English. He should also look well whether it suits him that the King of France should so prosper in Italy as to become lord of the world and make the enterprise of Guienne impossible. When I sent by Comendador Muxica my determination and desired the King my son to send me 6,000 Almains for that enterprise, and he would not send them, the danger of the states which the Emperor and I hold in Italy compelled me to make the said (sic) truce, but the principal cause was my dangerous illness, as I explained beforehand to the English ambassadors (fn. 4) then in my Court. The second cause was that, the King sending even less aid than he did the first time, it would have been impossible for me to make the enterprise. The truce was made with the knowledge of the Doctor and John Stil, the King's ambassadors, and included the King of England.
If the King my son complain of the second truce as arranged with France without his knowledge you shall say that I was not the inventor or mover of that truce which the Emperor, owing to the peril of his states and mine in Italy, first commissioned to be made by him, England and me, jointly, undertaking that England would ratify it. Otherwise I should not have spoken of it; but it was very necessary.

Bill for an act of Parliament that no person shall keep in his hands more farms than one, and shall dwell thereupon; in consequence of the scarcity of victuals, occasioned by the occupation of farms by merchants adventurers, clothmakers, goldsmiths, butchers, tanners and other artificers, more than they can employ in tilth (some holding from 10 to 16 farms), and the decay of housekeeping. For when every man was contented with one farm there was plenty of everything, as every acre of land ploughed bore the straw and chaff besides the corn, able "with help of the shackke, to keep great beasts," "as the land would keep layed in leyes"; and by the winnowing of the corn there were kept at every barn door pigs and poultry, to the "comfort of your people" in every shire. Now, in a town of 20 or 30 dwellings the houses are decayed, the people gone, the churches in ruins and in many parishes nothing more than a neatherd or a shepherd or a warner is to be seen.

S.P. Hen. VIII., 9, f. 264. R.O. 2. Draft of a proclamation stating that by report of the Justices of the Peace and Commissioners of the Shires, complaint is made of the continued scarcity of grain by conversion of arable into pasture and engrossing of farms. By these means tenements fall to decay, poultry and victual are diminished, "and an infinite number of the King's subjects, for lack of occupation, had fallen and daily do fall into idleness and consequently into theft and robberies; and finally, by the rigor of the laws of this realm, many of them have been put to the execution of death." Order is hereby made that all such lands shall revert to tillage as were in tillage in the year 1 Hen. VII.

Speech addressed by an orator, to an audience whom he addresses as viri prudentissimi, in favour of his and their fellow (comes hic noster) of whom he speaks in terms of the most fulsome praise as a bishop (praesul, p. 8) engaged in the public administration (p. 1), who early attained fame for his knowledge of law (p. 3), whose skill in council is attested by appeasing a rebellion of the people of York without any bloodshed (p. 3) and who is applauded as leader of the Senate, occasion of good order, anchor of the Londoners, glory of lawyers, &c. (p. 5), "qui florentem reddidit Angliam, qui seditionum motus composuit, qui sanctissimo sub principe munere fungitur, hic quem de jure disserentem et gravissimas controvertias componentem admiratur tota plebs." Finally the speaker breaks into verse, concluding:
"O nos felices tali sub praesule, felix
Atque patrocinio gens studiosa tuo,
Pasce gregem pastor Christum disperge per orbem
