August 1511

Adv. MS., 336. 834. JAMES IV. to JULIUS II.
Has heard from Andrew bp. of Murray of his favourable reception by the Pope. Thanks his Holiness for the promise, contained in his brief, to make him a cardinal, as well as for the favours shown him on James' account. Dated "ut supra" [which should be, as in Adv. MS., 334, Linlithgow, 5 Id. April 1512,—too late a date for this letter].
Lat., copy, p. 1.
Adv. MS., 270. 835. JAMES IV. to the POPE.
Requests that the hospital of St. Laurence, Haddingtoun, St. Andrew's dioc., endowed by his ancestors for the use of the poor, may be converted into a convent of Friars hermits of the Order of St. Augustine reformandorum, seu de Observantia, with the assent of the present possessor.

836. [1829.] JAMES IV. to JULIUS II.
The privileges granted to the Chapel Royal, Stirling, which the Pope erected into a bishopric at his request, with the patronage of the churches, are much contested by the ordinaries. Requests the Pope will preserve them not only to the castle of Stirling and St. Michael's college, but extend them to all the Royal Palaces in the kingdom, as the bp. of Murray will explain by articles signed by the King. Edinburgh, 1 Aug. 1511.

847. [1847.] ERASMUS to COLET.
Mishaps of his journey in company with Bovill. Finds he will have to spend whatever he can scrape from his patrons, as nothing is to be gained at Cambridge. There is a Dutch physician in the place, who works wonders by a quintessence, and makes old men young again. Thinks if he could taste his essence, and find the same effect, he would be well paid for his journey. Can get nothing, as his audience has nothing to give. Will write if he is successful, that Colet may laugh the more. Queen's Coll. Cambridge, dies nat. Barthol.

Le Glay, Negoc. entre la France et l'Autriche, I. 431.
*** Letters from Florence, of the 23rd inst., report that the Pope had been three days ill of fever and the physicians counted him for dead. Would God he had died a year and a half ago! Three days ago arrived an ambassador (fn. 3) from the King of England to exhort this King to peace. He has been shown the justifications which the Emperor and King have, and I think that he will be despatched from this town. The King will leave to-morrow or the day after towards Blois. To-day I received your letters of the 20th but have not spoken of the matters therein (fn. 4), on account of present occurrents; for it would not be fitting to do so until three or four days have passed.
