[Note of letters seen 8 June 1512.]
From "that" Friar Angelo, Rome, 31 May to 1 June.—The Pope wants Swiss to go first to Ferrara at which they are displeased. The Florentines have renewed their league with the French, although not against the Church. A courier from England who passed through Venice says that the King was in Hampton, hastening the passage of 20,000 combatants, in 50 ships.
1 June.—At Naples are arrived 3,000 Spaniards, and the Great Captain daily expected. The King of England offers the Pope a great many men besides those given to Spain. The King of France has exalted a son (fn. 1) of the sister of the King who was killed by the last King of England, and will make him King of England. Yesterday, saw a letter from the secretary of the King of England to the Turano (fn. 2) that if God does not take up arms for the French they cannot escape ruin.

1224. [3283.] JULIUS II. to LEWIS XII.
It is not his fault he has been so long without sending a letter to France. As an important occasion presents itself, announces his intention of undertaking an expedition against the Turks. Sends him a copy of the letter from Ragusa. As all other princes have professed their willingness to join, he, the eldest son of the Church, ought not to be the only one to offer an obstacle. He knows well what were the Pope's intentions on the defeat of the Venetians; and if all had listened to his paternal admonition, there would not have been for the last four years such effusion of blood in Italy. Has heard since that the son of Iniquity, Selimchat (Selimschat in § 2), younger son of the Great Turk, has just been created Emperor in the lifetime of his father, and has already declared war against Italy and Rhodes. He will be forced on by his janissaries, through whose influence he has been created Emperor in spite of his father. Ravenna has witnessed horrible cruelties perpetrated by French soldiers worse even than the Turks. Begs Lewis will give as much heed to the Pope, as he gives to Bernardinus Carvel, Frederick de Sancto Severino, and their accomplices, who would make him countenance their pernicious schism. They have treated Ravenna worse than Turks—a most ancient city, always held in great veneration by Popes and Emperors. They have broken their word, and St. Severin gave up the city to plunder, boasting he would serve others in the same way. Details the horrors of the siege. A treaty was made some months ago, leaving room for other Christian princes, that on the recovery of Bologna, Ferrara, and other places belonging to the Holy See, the Crusade should commence. The subject is to be discussed at the Council of the Lateran, of which the second session has already been held. Rome, 2 June (fn. 3) 1512, 9 pont.

Have not disclosed their mission to the Emperor, who rode on the 29th to Our Lady of Hawes, to give the French audience, as stated in their last, and return in two days to Brussels. The two days have been prolonged to six. They were asked by him and others whether the ships had yet been despatched from Hampton, and answered that the ships were ready before the writers left England, only tarrying for wind. Now, finding they were still remaining there the 22nd ult., know not what to answer. A letter has been sent to the commander of Spain resident in the imperial court, that only 8,000 men mustered at Hampton, whereas according to their instructions they had informed the Emperor and my Lady of 10,000, which is the number promised for Guienne in the late treaty between England and Aragon.

To the third he said that [he] was content, at the request of my Lady, specially for the love that he hath to your grace, to make a new league and confederacion between h[is] Majesty, your grace, and the Prince of Castile, leaving place for the Pope's holiness and for the King of Aragon." For greater expedition he referred them to my Lady, whom they are to see this evening. In the end of his answer to this last article, the Emperor said he had sent a letter to England telling the King that he had detained for his service 2,000 Almains which Robert de la Marche had prepared for the French King; on which Sir Robert Wingfield said he had already written and the ambassadors brought the King's answer, which Sir Thomas Boleyn thereupon declared, viz., and that the King was content to entertain these troops for three months in lieu of the aid he had promised for this summer to the Prince of Castile against the Duke of Geldres, on receiving a bond of the Emperor for repayment. "The Emperor and my Lady went eftsoons apart, and with them my Lord Berges, and anon my said Lady returned unto us giving right good hearty thanks to your grace for your kind offer, praying us to write unto your grace that the wages of the said 2,000 Almains might be advanced by your highness the space of one month more." The Emperor is very poor, which my Lady knows well. She asked therefore whether they had brought with them the wages of these Almains, begging it might be sent speedily to Antwerp. Till the money comes they can expect nothing but the usual delays. The Emperor told them that in eight days he would declare himself against the French for aiding Geldres. My lady says that to condescend to a fourth month for the said Almains will encourage the Emperor the sooner to make actual war. Thos. Spinelly will write of the news from Italy. Brussels, 7 June.

A long history, by Peter Griphus, Papal collector, of Peters Pence and other dues collected in England from the origin of the office of collector in the time of Pope Leo IV., about A.D. 856; to which is appended (p. 157) a catalogue of the legates and collectors of England, including himself. He arrived in England on 1 Feb. 1509, but, owing to impediments placed in his way, he was not allowed to exercise his office until 1 Feb. 1510, when he received permission in the public assembly which they call Parliament (p. 244). Lists follow (p. 247) of all the benefices liable to Peters Pence or pension, census or annates, with amounts due. Finally (p. 353) come a number of formulae, or copies of acquittances, bulls and other instruments, including (p. 390) the records of his delivery of his credentials to the Abp. of Canterbury at Lambeth 6 April 1509, and (p. 402) at Lambeth on 4 May 1509, the delivery, before the Abp., by Polidore Vergil, late sub-collector, of a book of the collectorate (described as the register of Walter Medgate) to Griphus, and also (p. 406) the latter's delegation, by authority of two briefs dated 8 Dec. 1511 and 19 Feb. 1512, of his office, which he has held for three years, to _ (name of delegate and date of document omitted).

1239. [3243.] WILLIAM KNIGHT to WOLSEY.
After leaving the Isle of Wight, on the 3 June, followed Sir Edw. Howard to sea, to the coast of the Trade. Some of the company were separated from the Marquis 30 or 40 miles, in consequence of the ungoodly manners of the seamen, robbing the King's victuals when the soldiers were sea-sick. Reached Bermeo, on the coast of Spain, on the 7th, where they had all things needful. Wrote a letter of thanks to the King of Aragon. Reached La Passage in Visacadia, between Biscay and Guienne, where they were in great danger from the mariners crowding into the narrow haven. Here saw a great ship loaded with artillery and powder. The same day the Bp. of Siguença presented my Lord with a letter from the King. Took the field on the 9th, near Reinteria, within three miles of Navarre. The victuals have not been as they expected; the rain continual, to the annoyance of the soldiers, "which lie nightly under the bushes." Sends a letter from the King of Aragon. D'Alva is expected. A French ambassador is with the King of Navarre, persuading him to lean to France. His enmity will be dangerous; for if he slack victuals, they will need victualling constantly from England. The citizens of Bayonne, and Mons. Dunesse their captain, have quarrelled. Many of the citizens have fled into Navarre. Mons. de Urtobia and another of them are "sworn English," and many others are thought to favour England. Our Captain is resolved to move to Fontarabia to support them. The rain is very troublesome. Could not write, as he intended, to my lords of Winchester and Durham. "From our pavilions beside Reinteria, in the country of Ipusqua," 14 June.

Galba B. III.,
Wrote last on the 16th, from Antwerp, mentioning that Thos. Spinelly had come to town, and delivered him the King's letters, dated the 10th, and that the Emperor had left the town the same day, but would return at night;—"which he did n[ot, but] gave audience to the French ambassadors tweyne lieges out of [the town]; and there was also the Prince and his three sisters, [the sight] of whom (as I deem) was neither much pleasant or comforta[ble to] the said ambassadors; for, blessed be God, they be all right fair and [tall], and go right up upon there joints and limbs." Yesterday the Emperor sent him word to be at Skelle, two leagues from Antwerp, at 6 at night; at 8 o'clock a gentleman was sent, who took him to a river between Brabant and Flanders, where he found a boat, and was carried by water to the castle of Ripylmonde, and there, in presence of Thos. Spinelly, mentioned the King's desire to know the Emperor's pleasure touching the gentlemen of those parts who had offered to serve the King. The Emperor declined to answer till he had consulted his daughter. He then asked when my cousin Boleyn departed. I told him on the 14th at 3 a.m., and arrived at Calais the next day at 9 a.m., which was a great exploit; and that I and Mr. Vice-Chancellor had written to further his Majesty's wishes, at which he was pleased. He told me he had given answer to the French ambassadors the day before, which "liked them but little," and gave Le Gyche leave to depart, who said his master had sent for him to serve against the English. The doctor Napolytan had no command to depart, or he would gladly have given him licence also. He said he had no news from Italy, except through France; but, as it was needful for me to depart, "he made the shorter work," and desired me to go to Brussels, where I should have an abstract of the news from my Lady. Met with a great storm on his return. Next day found that my Lady had given to the Vice-Chancellor the abstract of news (enclosed). The Vice-Chancellor does not write because Bluemantle [went] yesterday with his letters to Calais, for lack of posts, and Thos. Spinelly had to pay 5 philips for a messenger. Brussels, 19 June.

Lagishe, the French ambassador, is still here, and had an audience yeterday with my Lady, requesting to stay 5 or 6 days and learn his master's pleasure touching the Emperor's writing. of which they inclose copy. She declined, but they don't know the certainty. Thomas Spinelly tells them that till Sir Thos. Boleyn return, the Emperor will give no answer touching the captains who have offered to serve the King. Sends the news since their last.

Wrote last on the 22nd, stating that the French ambassador had been with my Lady. He left on the 2[3rd], and the doctor Napolitane rode to the Emperor, "but they parted, so that the said D[octor] cowde himself no great thank for his coming." The Emperor told him that if they did not go when they could, they should not go when they would. The 2[4th] of this month the Emperor came to Brussels, and sent for them, "and we found him ready to ride, and [my] Lady, his daughter, with my Lord Prince and his sisters w[ere] without the palace gate, where a great fire was made in [the] honour of St. John. and the Emperor had the collar of St. G[eorge] about his neck." The Master of the Rolls told him the rumour of his going to the Princes of the Empire, and begged him to commission my Lady to finish the negotiations, as Boleyn would soon come from England. He said he was more likely to go to Gueldres, but would wait two or three days, and promised to let them know his resolution about the captains and the commission next day. He then rode two leagues to his bed past 8 o'clock. Were then summoned to the great hall where they had a conversation with my Lady, whom they find a perfect friend. "In that while the Prince and his sisters and the young folk danced, and betwixt 9 and 10 they made an end, and then we departed." On the 25th received a letter from the Emperor, excusing himself for not keeping his word, as he was obliged to go to Gueldres. Send copies of letters.
After they had written these letters on the 26th, deferred despatching them on account of the coming of Sir Tho. Boleyn, about 2 p.m. The same day he had an interview with my Lady, delivered Henry's letters and declared his mind touching the advancement of mo[ney for] 2,000 Almains against the Geldres for four months, upon obligation, which she approved. But as to the article concerning the advancement of 100,000 [ducats] to be given to the Emperor for actual war against France as declared by Boleyn, she answered that the Pope and Aragon not only granted 100,000 each but had paid a great part of it or else the Swiss had not gone through his country or the 6,000 Almains left the French army. She asked them to put the matter in writing and she would help to "frame" it. Brussels, 27 June.

Wrote last on the 27th. On that day were sent for to Court, and heard evensong; afterwards saw the Prince shoot at the butts. He "handled his bow right well favourdly." Yesterday the 2[8th] my Lady recommended that Sir Tho. Boleyn should go to the Emperor; and when the articles came from England we might commune with such Commissioners as he should appoint. Sir Tho. Boleyn will be with him to-morrow. Await here the coming from England of the articles and the form of obligation for the 32,000 fl. of gold to be lent for the wars of Geldres. Think it advisable the sum should be sent in crowns to Calais, and not by way of exchange as suggested in Henry's last letters, of the 23rd. Think it should be sent at once, as "men of war be so taken up on every side that they wax so lordly that almost no man can have them [but at] their own laws." It will be necessary for them to have the treaty between the King and the Emperor, on which the King consents to give him 100,000 crowns, reserving places for the Pope and the King of Aragon, or else articles binding the Emperor to make such a confederation with the Pope and Aragon by a certain day. Spinelly writes the news. Brussels, 29 June.

Adv. MS., 399. 1263. JAMES IV. to [GRAND MASTER OF RHODES]. (fn. 9)
Wrote last on the 31 March, asking for his favor in the affair of the commandry of Torfichen and the houses of Lison and Maricult, lately reannexed to it. Wishes not even a Scotch subject to be appointed preceptor who would recognise the English prior as a superior on the pretext that Scotland is comprehended under the English tongue, and by which the payments on vacancies should go to the Treasurer in England. Deserves better of the Order, having appointed one of his councillors preceptor of Torfichen. Geo. Dundas, whose suit with Paniter has been tried at Rome, was appointed by consent of the English, as is shown by the letters of provision. This is an insult to Scotland. Thanks him for promising his assistance, in his letter "ex burgo novo" (Bourg Neuf in Blois ?) of 19 April. The appointment of a suitable prior will greatly benefit the Order.

1264. [3277.] SECRETARY PANITER [of Scotland] to the GRAND MASTER OF RHODES (fn. 10).
Has received his letters, dated Blois, 20 April, stating that he was expecting the Prior of England. The Prior is reported to have entered the dominions of the King of France on the 6 June, in the vanguard under the Duke of Srosberry, which he ought not to have done. Has not sought the Scotch preceptory of Rhodes, through greed. Thanks to the King he is well provided for, but his jeering adversary has compelled litigation. If Paniter is made one of the knights (servitor), hopes he shall satisfy the Society. Will give the requisite bonds on the merchants of Florence, and revive the decayed endowments of the Order in Scotland.

Relates what he has seen himself, and learned from a relative with the Chancellor, of the state of the King [of France]. Has been to See the assembly both at Blois, and in Normandy, where the naval force was getting ready, and seen nothing which can do her much harm. Has done his best for her, remembering that he has been long supported in her territories, and that she gave him money at Antwerp for giving her warning of a man of De Piennez—as also at Cambray at the meetings (aux appointements). Requested the officers of Hedine to allow him to go to her at Malincs; but they detained him, doubting whether he had formerly spoken to her and the governor of Bresse and her treasurer Don Diegue. The King has beyond the Mountains 1,380 men of arms and 14,000 foot, under Lieutenants De Trevou, Jean Jacques, and De la Trymouille; and here, for his army against England, 800 men of arms only, with the gentlemen and pensioners of his household and archers of his guard, which is a very great band. He has 10,000 or 12,000 Swiss now at Rains, for whose pay Graville, Admiral of France, has lent him 80,000 livres; 1,400 lanzknechts at St. Espert (?) de Ruee, who will be at Montreuil in two days; 3,000 Picards, and 3,000 Normans. He has recalled De la Marche from beyond the Mountains with his 4,000 lanzknechts. He has made and brought from Paris and Bloys great pieces of artillery, and there are 12 pieces made at Rouen since Easter, among the largest ever seen, which he is likewise bringing hither. He has also prepared 1,200 hacquebuttes to break the English ranks. His naval force is small and ill-manned. If he can beat the English he will attack Hainault and Flanders and Artois. The embassies he has sent to her are only a blind. The writer saw at Blois a Norman priest of the territory of the Duke of Alençon, who has come several times from England. The King has paid him to reside in the English court as a spy. He has brought letters to those of the family of Suffolk, and gained over one of the King of England's secretaries. Saw the priest at Blois and can recognise him. Has seen a gunner named Denis le Charon, now in the house of Mons. de Piennez at Montreul, who has engaged to blow up with Greek fire the English magazines and destroy all the mills in the county of Guisnes. They are carrying all the victuals to the camp at Boulogne. 400 men will be at Montreuil in two days, where De Piennez means to remain. The King is at Paris, "bien mal disposé il n'a que la langue et ung petit de coeur." Is ready to go either to France or England at Madame's bidding, but if to England she must send him, as he knows nothing of England or Calais, and if to France she should send him to one of her frontier captains.
