On the same subject as the above. Hopes he will support his application to come home. His coming is necessary both for obtaining money to take with him and for the ordering of his wife and household, and all such gear as he leaves behind him. Here, for sixteen days, has been a rumor that the King of Aragon has made peace with the French King and that a pursuivant of the former has passed through France to Calais, and crossed to England.

Learnt by hers of the 11th inst. that she has concluded the treaty between him and the King of England. Has thereupon despatched the writings concerning that affair; and would have sent them to her, but is just notified by the King of Aragon that he has taken a year's truce between the Emperor, him and the King of England on the one side and France, Scotland and Charles of Gueldres on the other, without comprehending the Italians. Desires her at once to send her advice and that of his Privy Council there as to what he should do now,—and meanwhile to proceed no further with the English. As to the truce, which she advises, with Gueldres he has done his best and sent Presingher back to his master, Charles of Gueldres, with an instruction (copy enclosed). Middleham, 26 April 1513.

1824. [3962.] [POYNINGS, &c.] to HENRY VIII.
(First leaf missing.) "by her good countenance as by her words and deeds for sh[e took a letter] out of her purse wherein the tidings were written concerning the bruit and common rumour of the truce taken between your father [the said] King of Aragon and the French King and brake the said letter, [therewith] casting it on the ground, having the words 'Let the un[true] bruit and vulgar opinion give place to the truth.'" Declared the King's recent feats at sea against the Frenchmen and delivered her a bill of the news translated into French, which she thereupon commanded Marynex, her secretary, to enclose in her letter to the Emperor. She said no [peace] was yet taken between the Emperor and the Venetians, who were raising a bruit that, if he would not conclude, they would join the Frenchmen, thinking thereby the sooner to induce him to peace. She desired that Henry would write to the Venetians and also show their ambassador that they should make peace for the weal of Christendom, for if they join France they must lose his favour. The Emperor will put the whole cause in the hands of the King of Aragon if the Venetians will agree, as the said ambassador must be shown. Yesterday the French ambassador (fn. 1) arrived here. He shall have audience to-day and be despatched (as they suppose) with another answer than he looks for. Brussels, 28 April.

Tells how, after leaving Brest on 13 March, he was compelled by sickness among his men to apply to M. de Chillou, vice-admiral of Britanny, for new men. On Friday, the Eve of St. George, after leaving Bar le Duc, was met at the Croix Primoguet by some 50 English ships. Describes the fight ending in the flight of the English, who lost a ship of 300 sunk in his sight, another sunk behind the point and two others which sank in the night. On Monday following, St. Mark's day, some 60 ships and boats, with Admiral Lord Howard in the first galleasse, assailed him and many men were slain on both sides; but the English finally drew off. As the two prisoners he took, viz., a Fleming, since dead, and an Englishman, both said the Admiral was among those who boarded the galley, and described him; Prégent made search and to-day recovered his body. Sent word of this to the Grand Master and Laval, at St. Mathieu; and the former immediately sent to learn from the King and Queen how the Admiral should be buried. Meanwhile enbalms the body. Want of money and men. As the Queen gave him a whistle he sends her the Admiral's, and to Madame Claude the Admiral's clothes. Since the English arrived there have been continual alarms. Writes to the King. Conquet, 28 April.

Has received letters from the King of England asking leave to engage men and hoys in the Low Countries for his army; and, although she may think that his dear brother, the King of France, might be offended, yet, considering the ancient alliances with England, which provide for communication of all things, he has consented. Was the more ready to grant this because the King of France, both during the lifetime of King Philip and since, has sent money and men to his enemies in Gueldres and nevertheless always claimed not to have infringed the treaties.

1828. [3974.] WILLIAM SABIN to WOLSEY.
Showed the Lord Admiral such credence as he was commanded by the King and Wolsey; and "since his departing" has shown it to Lord Fer[rers] and others of his Council. Cannot see any advantage to be had of the enemy. They are in great strength and well provided,—unless they be attacked by land. There are other places beside the Trade where damage may be done. So long as the English remain in "one betyng and remeve nat" the enemy will not come out from the coast of Britanny, or give an opportunity of pursuit. There are numerous places where a landing can be effected. Has offered his advice, as Wolsey, his head and governor, commanded. The enterprise on the galleys was not conducted as he would have advised. The Admiral had attacked them before he came. "Whan I se them ly in so gret a strengtht be wa[ter and be] londe, I com unto my Lord Admyrall and schoyd hym [my mind] and myne advyse, the wyche he was so sore set apon ... be a Spanyarde (fn. 2), that I cowde nat torne hys mynd.

Howbeit he dyed lyke a vallyent [man], and as he was informed by ye said Spannyarde hes ... Jesu have mersy, for now we be bodys withowte a hed." Urged the Admiral [last] Christmas for convicts to serve in the Fleet; and now makes further suggestions.

Has this day spoken with the English ambassadors of a false league (fallaci treuga), which the French say has been made with the King of Aragon, as the letters of the said ambassadors will explain. As the French may sow similar rumours at Rome she thought it fitting that the ambassadors should write this to him, that the Pope and others may know the truth. Brussels, 30 April 1513.

1834. [4009.] THE ARMY.
Among other proposals for the setting forth of the King's armies, it is thought right that the Lord Steward with the vanguard, on his arrival at Calais, should set forward, in order that victuals may not be wasted; as the vanguard is insufficient to undertake a siege, the rear is to set forward as soon as possible to join them at Calais. The vanguard is to embark on the 15th May, so that it may be all over by the 28th, and by that day the rear may be ready to embark. The King, with the middle-ward, to follow at convenient time.
To avoid danger, it is thought the King ought not to lay siege to any town in person, but to keep with his retinue at a convenient distance.

Joes Pierducx left Vere on his second journey, 1 March 1512, going along the coast to Brest. Brief note of ships and galleys at Heu, Diepe, Hondfleur, Stoques, Pontarchon, Susieres and Brest. It is expected that the Scots and Danes will help with a good number of ships. At Harfleur found Robert Berton making a fine new ship of 200 tons, to be ready by Easter last. Was arrested there, but, through his acquaintance with Berton, obtained release. At Dieppe, in his return he was imprisoned for a time.
