890. [1882.] ERASMUS to COLET.
Begins to scent out the sort of men whom Colet mentioned. Did not visit him when last in London, not wishing to trouble him. Peter, the one-eyed (fn. 1), told Erasmus that Colet had written:—has not received his letter. Will visit him in December, if he is not kept away by the plague, especially if Mountjoy returns, with whom he can stay. Cambridge, 3 Non. Oct. 1511.

891. [1883.] ERASMUS to AMMONIUS.
By some unlucky fatality could not call on Ammonius when last in London (isthic): never thought he was staying at More's, especially as Jodocus, the bookseller, told him that Ammonius was at the college of St. Thomas. Knocked at his chamber next morning, but did not find him at home. After mass heard the tramp of horsemen; begged Linacre to look out, as he (Erasmus) was engaged in writing, and was told that Ammonius was leaving. Wishes to know what news of Mountjoy's arrival, whether the plague is as violent as reported, what's afoot in Italy or France. Cambridge, 3 Non. Oct. 1511.

Will visit London in the winter if the frost clear off the plague, which he hears is raging. Has been lecturing on the grammar of Chrysoloras to a small audience. Will commence on the grammar of Theodorus, and perhaps take a course of theology. Works hard, but the profits are small. Cambridge, postridie Id. Oct. 1511.

Louis de Marraton, the Emperor's secretary, whom she despatched to the Emperor to induce him to make peace with the Venetians, as advised by England and Aragon, has returned with a favourable answer.

917. [1918.] AMMONIUS to ERASMUS.
His letters have surpassed expectation. They have been more than Ammonius could have ventured to hope; but have not satisfied his thirst. Has not been able, partly from his continual occupation in the King's business, partly from the carelessness of the messengers, to make Erasmus any adequate return. Has received from him three letters, one containing verses. Can say more truly than Erasmus χαλκεα χρυσειων, having exchanged wine no better than copper for verse more precious than gold. Hopes to deliver his letters in a few days to the bishops of Winchester and Durham. As for Italian news, the Spaniard is at open war with the French; the English are not likely to remain indifferent spectators. P. Julius is gone to Loretto, to return thanks for his recovery. The Venetians have slain in an ambuscade more than 500 French. The Emperor is so cold he has not yet left his stove. Florence and Pisa are excommunicated for lending themselves to the spurious Council. Card. Reggio is dead. The plague has not disappeared entirely from London. Has moved to the college of St. Thomas; "ubi sum nihilo magis ex sententia mea quam apud Morum." Sees not the harpey's claw, but has many things to dislike, and scarce knows how he is to live in England. Is told that to live with the Italian merchants would not become him; dislikes the meanness (sordes) of this place; and is too poor to keep a house of his own. Goes to Court to-morrow; will send another flagon. Remembrances to Bovill. London, 6 Kal. Nov. 1511.

Lettres de
Louis XII.,
iii., 85.
Has received his letters by Maiître Loys Maraton, secretary, and approves his intention provided that it is duly executed. Will not further trouble him with advice, and has not so much desire to meddle as to see him in peace in his old age and during the minority of this young Prince. Received his other letters by which he advised levying the siege of Vanello. The Seigneurs d'Ilsestin and Edward Poignyon, captain of the English, were not of that opinion and have concluded to make battery for three days and then assault, in which the English offer to take first place. But for the changeable weather this had been already done. Within eight days they will have done or failed, and will then decide about laying waste about Nymeghe as he orders. Assures him that Charles de Gueldres does not sleep and means to keep them waking this winter, for which cause she has summoned the Estates of Brabant and Holland for 6 Nov. at Breda, and will move them to continue their aid. Those of Holland continued their aid ordinary for three years, and in obtaining this the Seigneur de Berghes, the Chancellor of Brabant and the Treasurer General did well. The Treasurer returned hither with her, and Berghes remained ill at La Haye. The siege of Vanello has been prolonged first, because they began it with too few men and secondly because both the Count of Nassau, captain general, and the Admiral fell ill. A great tower in the town which overlooked the English camp has been half beaten down, and the English have made a mound from which their artillery will be able to beat along the town as far as the market place. They acquit themselves wonderfully well, much better than the rest of the army.
Has received his letters with the instructions of England which she has debated with the Seigneur de La Roche and finds entirely necessary for the Emperor's justification. La Roche's going may serve greatly to the entertainment of that King's amity, and the sooner the better. Will consider whether she can send a secretary with him as the Emperor advises.
* * *
Touching the sending to the Council of Pisa of which he has written she thinks it sufficient that he, as tutor of her nephew and her, should send for them all; and to tell the truth the finances of this country are so short that not a penny could be found for the despatch. * * *

920. [4528.] ERASMUS to COLET.
Is busy in completing his work De Copia; and in media Copia, in summa versatur inopia. This is the reason he did not answer Colet's before. Avoids the Scotists that he may not waste time. Has cooled in the translation of St. Basil, because the Bp. of Rochester to whom he sent a specimen, with a letter stating that he undertook it in order that a translation of St. Basil should come out under Fisher's auspices at Cambridge (ex illius Academia), did not rise to the bait. Erasmus has been told that the Bishop thought the specimen sent was not genuine; only an old translation vamped up. Had written to him about Croke, not because he thought Colet had other men's money, but because he thought he would rather show his liberality to an Englishman. Thanks him for his offer, but does not like his phrase, " si humiliter mendicaveris;" remonstrates with Colet for using this and other expressions. It is discreditable that he should be obliged to beg after spending so much time in England. Has had so much from the Archbishop (Warham) it would be a shame to accept more if he offered it. Has asked N., and been refused. Even Linacre, who knew he was leaving London with no more than six angels, and his health indifferent, urged him not to apply to the Archbishop or Mountjoy, but habituate himself to poverty. Could do this when health was strong; must beg now to save his life. Will not refuse Colet's bounty.
Postscript.—When he broached the subject of an under-master among certain Masters of Arts, one said, "Who would be a schoolmaster that could live in any other way ?" When Erasmus urged that this was a Christian work above all others, his interlocutor replied, "If a man wishes to serve Christ let him enter a monastery." When Erasmus rejoined that to do good to others was charity, he was answered, perfection consisted in leaving all things. Cambridge, postrid. Simonis and Judæ.

Returns the flagon, which he kept by him to enjoy the smell of the Greek wine. Sends him for good wine bad verses: χαλκεα χρυσειων.
Begs him to forward his letters enclosed to the bishops to whom they are written, when he visits the Court. Bovill desires remembrance. If the poems of Ammonius are sold in London, would like to have a copy.

From the secretary at Rome (date not given).—In Consistory on the 24th (sic), the four Cardinals were deposed. By letters from Peter Grifo, the Pope's ambassador in England, that King had made peace with Scotland. He had not yet heard of the conclusion of the League, but was well disposed. The Secretary has told the Pope of the election of Francesco Foscari as ambassador.
