26 Nov. 1130. Jacques de Coucy [Sieur de Vervins] to Lord Lisle.
R. O. I thank you for informing me that there is a fine horse at Calais.I bought one or two lately, but I should be glad to get a good hackney, and you wrote in another letter that there was a gentleman who had a fine one, but wanted to sell it too dear and that you had sent into England to get a couple; also that you would like to get a goshawk for partridges. The season is passing by, and it is very difficult to get any at present. Nevertheless I have written about it to some friends in my country. Boulogne, 26 Nov. Signed.

26 Nov. 1131. André Chapperon to the Deputy of Calais.
I have received your letters stating that you have done a pleasure to a relation of my wife, and that you are surprised I do not send you the wine that the grand escuyer has given you. As I have already written, I should have been glad to do so, but had no such charge, for the grand [escuyer] has given his land of Laleu to his son who has committed the charge of it to another person. I have sent on your letters to that person, who says he has no charge about it from his master. I thank you for your kindness to my wife's nephew. He says, however, that they have done him great wrong in taking away his goods, and that the capture in Flanders (de Flandres) was lawful. Tour de la Chaine, Rochelle, 26 Nov. Signed.
Fr., p. 1. Add.
1132. The Wife of Captain Chaperon to [Lisle] Deputy of Calais.
R. O. Thanks him for his present. Sends him four pipes of white wine and four bareques of claret. Sends the white wine in pipes because it is stronger. If we live another year I will get some made for you which shall be unexceptionable. This year the grapes have been a little touched by frost. "De votre maison de la Rochelle."

Is stayed in Lyons by the cardinal of Tournon, and the Chancellor of France and the Council here. A servant of my lord of Winchester who was despatched by his master towards Henry is also stayed. The Chancellor and council will give no other reason than that it is their master's command, and promise to send to their master about it; but it will be six or eight days before they can have an answer. Thinks their policy is to delay the news out of these parts. Report in Lyons that Henry's ambassador in Spain is arrested. Pleaseth you "to understand that [a post was sent] from the Emperor the 20th day of …………… at Monson after the sun setting and ………….. arrived in this town of Lyons the ……………. following at night, trusting to have ………………. your Majesty within four or five days after ……………… hither if God and this had not lett[ed]…" Heard by chance of this bearer, servant at Calais, who, though engaged in a process at law, has left his own affairs to carry this. All the posts between this and Calais are stayed. Fears they can mean no [tr]uth to the King. Lyons, 26 Nov.

1135. John Mauntell to Mr. Mason.
Since parting from you I had no way to write or send you your money. Francisco told me you were somewhat amended. My lord Privy Seal asked me how you did and seemed very glad to hear you were amended. Harry Francis, my lord of Winchester's man, told him you had broken your back. I have sent you by Peter (fn. n1) 22l. 10s. I received of Mr. Wyatt's money 40 ducats for what he owed you and for Rudston's costs, and the other 10 I keep for that I lacked at my departing. My father-in-law would have had it tarried till he heard from Mr. Wyatt. How slenderly Mr. Wyatt's matters have been handled here, and how few friends he has, the bearer can partly show; I will show you more at our next meeting, which I trust shall be shortly. Since I came no man but myself solicited Mr. Wyatt's matters to my lord. Till Peter departed we thought to send him at Mr. Wyatt's cost, but when he came for my lord's letters he allowed him 20l. Will make "a nend" till we meet next. London, 27 November.

[27] Nov. 1136. William Byrche to Lord Lisle.
R. O. A ship called the Mare Garce (Mary Grace) has been lost by tempest off the coast of Normandy, 8 miles from Boulogne. In it the bearer, a servant of the writer, has lost cloths to the value of 60l., all he was worth in the world, and without Lisle's help not only he but his brother, Nich. Sawturley, a young merchant, are utterly undone. Has no doubt of Lisle's assistance. The King is merry and on Sunday night supped with your old friend Sir William Kingston at the Black Friars. London, Tuesday before St. Andrew.

28 Nov. 1137. W. Welden to John Mason.
R. O. Is sorry for his mischance and wishes for his safe return to England. Has delivered all his tokens, except the gloves for Mr. Selynger, who is not yet returned from Ireland. Gave the hat very lately to Mr. Layton, because he avoided the city for fear of contagion. Were exiled the Court and lay in the country a month, at Woborn, because their chaplain Sir John died of the plague. Before that their master (fn. n2) was commanded daily to wait. Asks him to send the book, which he wrote by Mr. Rouggecrosse was left at Barcelona. Mr. Tuke's clerk says the 200 ducats cannot be allowed and taken as for your journey to Sicily by my lord's (fn. n3) letter, which specifies that they should be taken upon account and allowance for my master's post money. He will not make the 340 crowns, ducats; because my lord's letter names crowns, so that Monsieur must make a new request or else take all as it standeth. The bearer can tell news.

28 Nov. 1138. Mr. Richardyne to Cromwell.
R. O. After Dr. Crome had heard him preach at Powles Cross and other places, he took him into Lincolnshire, where he has preached lately and found great need of true ministers of God's word, and nothing more desired of the people nor less done in those quarters where he was. He has given Richardyne hope that Cromwell will help him with the first fruits of his 9l. benefice, and has made him tarry, though he has nothing to live upon this year and the people are but poor labourers. Has paid half and asks Cromwell to give Mr. Doctor a token to Gostewike to have patience of the payment of the other half. 28 Nov.

Nott's Wyatt,
Though I have nothing of importance to write, I take the opportunity of this messenger going upon your private affairs to say that your last letters touching conferences with the Emperor and M. de Grandevile were as well taken as ever I saw orators' letters. Where in your letters to me you make instant suit for money, I took immediate order for the payment of your diets for six months beforehand, and the money you had laid out in posts, and further diet for two months in lieu of a prest for the despatch of posts, so that if your agents here had called for money, or if Rougecroix would have taken your bills of exchange with him, it might have been despatched long ago. I marvel you would put the King to the charge of your interests. The precedent were too evil to be admitted, and such a request would be taken in evil part. Mistrust not but that you shall have as much favour as I may extend, "and indeed you had need of friendship, for I have not seen a wise man leave his things so rawly as yours be left."
Now to touch some of the points in your letters to the King. Surprised that it should be said there that the Emperor's agents here resident could have no audience in six months. The truth is they never desired audience but they had it, as they now confess, since the arrival of the letters, since which time there has been new communication of the marriage. They would have our daughter, whom the King esteems as she is worthy, and would give nothing for it. If it take not effect the fault will be theirs, for we have desired nothing but what the Emperor may do without breach of his leagues with the bp. of Rome. Upon the decease of the Queen the ambassadors made
an overture for the daughter of Portugal. It was thankfully taken, but would have been more so had it come anew from the Emperor, but it appears they did it upon an old commission. The King (fn. n5) is much desirous to hear touching the matter of Digneley. The Nete, 29 Nov.
P.S. Whereas in conversation the Emperor said to Wyat that as long as his affairs went badly his friends made no offers of mediation, but as soon as they seemed to prosper he was solicited to peace both by the King of England and other friends, Wyat must take opportunity to resume the subject and say that now, when news has come of the abasement of his affairs in Italy and the victories of the French king (both in getting the passage at Zuse and the reinforcement of his holds in those parts), the King is still willing to mediate for peace, and has commanded Wyat to renew the overture, although the Emperor's things be not so prosperous altogether as they were. If the Emperor is ready to listen, Wyat shall require him to send a personage to the King for the declaration of his titles, and no doubt the French king will do the like. Wyat may take this opportunity to say that the report that his ambassadors could not have audience in six months was untrue. Observe his answers, so as to "decipher the bottom of his heart." The Nete, 30 Nov.
The King's pleasure is that you send a speedy answer hereof and news of occurrants there. Signed.

Nott's Wyatt,
I thank you for your sundry gentle letters, and can assure you your doings are well taken, for I myself read them to the King. As to your money, the letters of your agents here will declare how you be used. For lack of special words in your letter of attorney to Sir Wm. Hawte they say he can give no sufficient acquittance, so that a new warrant must be sued for every payment. Let that be amended. Yet doubt not but that your warrant shall be ready if your agents will call only four days before. Your things stand rawly, as I understand, but I will be assured to you according to my promise. I thank you for my man Baker, and pray you to set him forward in the attaining of the Latin tongue. If he act as he did with me I trust you like him well. I shall continue my favour to him or withdraw it as you shall think him worthy. The Nete, 30 Nov.
P.S. With much ado about nothing I have saved you a good part of the charges of this post.

30 Nov. 1145. John Bolter, of London, Goldsmith, to Cromwell.
R. O. Delivered your letter to my lord Chancellor, but am still put off from day to day. Patrick Barnewell, the King's serjeant, sets the judges against me. Sir John Splyman (sic.) drew up and delivered you a book of my matter; but Mr. Serjeant prefers his own learning, though if he would speak to the King's advantage the King might have 500l. from the city of Cork. He is, however, in fee with them (the city) and justice Lutterell. Begs new letters to the Lord Chancellor, and will bring over his books to prove his case. Dublin, 30 Nov.

I would not have done so but for your letter. I have written to you what he will cost, and as soon as I come back to Paris your son shall write to you his news. I lately wrote to you about a debtor of mine who used to live in this town, who has gone to reside 12 leagues from London. I have given the bearer his "cedulle originalle." I beg you to obtain justice for me. Rouen, 30 Nov. 1537.

Articles agreed upon at Monçon to be sent to the comendador mayor of Leon and Mons. de Granvelle for use in treating the peace with the Grand Master and High Chamberlain (Mayordomo mayor) of France. End of Nov. 1537.
108 articles touching Milan, the General Council, the Turk, the Venetians, duke of Savoy, Italy, Flanders, &c.
The 22nd article points out that it must be considered what course is to be taken with the king of England, the Germans, and the heretic Cantons (desviados de nuestra Santa Fee) to induce them to attend and obey the Council. The 80th is to get the king of France to renounce generally all alliances with heretics (desviados) and particularly with the duke of Saxony, landgrave of Hesse, and duke of Wirtemberg. The 87th is to try and find out if the French would, besides the public treaty, agree to a secret treaty especially touching the King of England and the heretics. The 93rd and 94th provide that if the marriage of the Infant Dom Luys with the daughter of France is spoken of, which was suggested by the king of France to the ambassador of Portugal, their answer will depend upon the state of the negociations in England; and as the best way to satisfy the King will be to suggest another marriage for his daughter, the prince of Piedmont might be mentioned.
97. As to the king of England, considering that relations with him are as like enmity as amity (according to the proverb that he who offends does not pardon) and he has left the Roman Church, and probably the king of France would be the more inclined to treat to be discharged of his pension to the king of England, care must be taken not to give that King cause of offence until assured on the side of France, and on the other hand, not to leave the king of France in distrust of what will be done in this. 98. If it is insisted that England be included as in former treaties, the rest must be left to the secret treaty, if one is made, or to the terms which shall be used as to returning to the unity of the Church and resistance against the Turk and also to the action of the Pope by censure and by calling in of the secular arm. 100. This point of a secret agreement against England is a very delicate matter, and care must be taken not to put the king of France in distrust lest he should temporise with the king of England and so hinder the Council, and the matter of the Turk, and the marriage of Don Luis with the princess of England. It must be seen whether this should not be deferred till after the passing of the public treaty, and nothing done that the French might take advantage of, seeing that they must know what causes the Emperor has to complain of the king of England.

1149. [Sir] Henry Longe to Cromwell.
R. O. I desire to have my discharge (fn. n7) from Mr. Pollard, which you promised when I was last with you I should have, for 55l. which I received of Rich. Gardyner, King's collector. Which sum he cannot have without my said discharge, for there is process against the said collector for it. It cost me 100 marks above the 55l. I beg your favour for my daughter, wife of Robert Leversege, who has no manner of living of her husband. I desired your favour for him at the time of his trouble, trusting he would amend, but since then he is rather worse than better. Please let her have a convenient living out of his lands, and I care not if she never see him again. The bearer can declare further. Signed.

1152. William Sulyard to Cromwell.
R. O. Perceiving by your Lordship's letters the King's pleasure touching my repair to the Marches of Wales and my slack setting forward to the same. "These great late worldly chances" wherein your Lordship was busied, caused me to stay lest I should importune you. The Council there being adjourned to next term, I shall meantime prepare to be at the next Council, and beg your Lordship to tell the King so.
