274. Sir Brian Tuke to Sir Thomas Wriothesley.
I send the memorial I promised you of such debts as will be good payment for Anthony Guydot. Take out such as you and my Lord Privy Seal think good. Few of them are all due, but all payable within a year or two, and all good payers. For I perceive that in his matter he must have ready money. "If like motion as he maketh had been taken in time with other diverse that offered good places to be bound," the King had saved 100,000 mks. of desperate debts and many a one been relieved that has been undone by suretyship, as Lord Audelay for Laurence Bonvise's debt. (fn. 1) Florence, in all their alterations of regiment, have kept "true takke" with the King, for their bond was that their citizens here should be liable if they failed. At my poor house, 26 April 1542.

278. Francis I. to Marillac.
Has just received his letter of the 22nd, reporting the extreme illness of Madame Marie, which was very unpleasant, and that of the Prince of Wales, which, however, is not serious. For his entire and indissoluble friendship with England, and for the sake of the affair now in hand for the common profit of both realms, hopes God will reduce things to better state. By this time the receiver de Chasteauneuf should be with Marillac. As to the King of England's journey to Dover, Marillac shall accompany him, and, if he crosses to Calais, shall follow his wishes as to crossing with him or remaining at Dover. Desires continual news of the King, Prince and Madame Marie.
If the King should make Marillac pass the sea with him, he shall send continual report of what is done, and leave one of his most able men, who shall feign himself ill, to report what is done in England after this passage. Likewise, if Marillac remains in England, he shall report the cause of this, passage and the preparations.

279. Chapuys to Mary Of Hungary.
Since his last the King has left for Dover to inspect the fortifications he is erecting thereabouts, intending apparently to cross to Calais and Guisnes and see what his engineers are doing there—a clear proof that he no longer thinks of an interview with Francis. The ambassador's man also reports that his master has now given up all hope of Orleans marrying in England. The King leaves all his councillors behind him to promote the affair of the loan. The Princess has gone on improving in health, and it is hoped will soon be well. London, 30 April 1542.

Spanish Calendar, VI., I., No. 251.
280. Chapuys to Granvelle.
The King left London about 6 days ago to inspect the fortifications about Dover, &c. The ambassador's man says his master considers the marriage of Orleans in England most improbable, and is not ashamed to glorify his King's alliance with the Turk, whose friendship he values more highly than that of the Emperor, and whom he praises as the most noble and virtuous prince in the world.
The King has left the whole of his Privy Council behind him for the forced loan, which is asked for as for two years, but repayment is more likely to be at the Greek calends, like that in Wolsey's time, which the States (Parliament) annulled. None of the lenders expect it back again, but they put a good face on it, being told it is to be used against the Turk and his adherents, including the French king. Wonder the King borrows so large a sum after all his exactions. The Princess has been very ill, &c. London, 30 April 1542.
From the Vienna Archives.
281. Sir Ric. Southwell to John Gates.
Encloses a letter from his friend Mr. Wharton whom, the thing being no loss to Mr. Denny and Gates, he would gladly serve; as Wharton is a "great householder and good viaunder." When last at Court, moved Mr. Denny in this, but had no certain answer. London, last of April 34 Henry VIII.

282. Bishop Bonner's Injunctions.
Injunctions made by the consent and authority of Edm. Bonner, bp. of London, in the year 1542, 34 Hen. VIII., to his clergy.
1. To provide themselves with copies, written or printed, of the King's ordinances and injunctions. 2. To study each week a chapter of the Bible, with the "gloss ordinary" or some approved expositor, from the beginning of the Gospel of Matthew to the end of the New Testament, so as to rehearse it at all times when commanded by the bp. or his officers. 3. To provide themselves with the book called "The Institution of a Christian Man," otherwise "The Bishops' Book." 4. Those absent from their benefices to suffer no priest to keep their cure unless he be "abled" by the bp.; and all who are so absent are warned to be personally resident before Michaelmas now next coming, or else present to the bp.'s officers the priests who shall serve their cures, and to exhibit the King's dispensations for their non-residence. 5. To warn parishioners against making secret contracts of matrimony. 6. Not to marry persons who have been married before unless they produce certificate of the death of their former husband or wife. 7. To bring up in learning such children of their parishioners as shall come to them for the same, or at least teach them to read English; taking moderately therefor from such as can pay. 8. To appease quarrels among their flock and themselves give an example of forgiving. 9. Where froward persons neglect their own curates and (to hide their naughty living) confess at Lent to other priests; it is to be declared that no persons shall be admitted to Communion who have not submitted to be confessed by their own curates (strangers only except), or else are dispensed with by the bp. 10. By a detestable custom universally reigning, young people and other ill-disposed persons, on Sundays and Holy days, in time of divine service and preaching, resort to ale houses and there exercise unlawful games "with great swearing, blasphemy, drunkenness, and other enormities." Keepers of ale houses and taverns are to be warned not to suffer such ungodly assemblies, or receive persons to bowling and drinking at such seasons. 11. To declare openly in the pulpit twice every quarter the seven Deadly sins and the Ten Commandments. 12. There are priests who go in unseemly apparel, with unlawful tonsures, and wearing weapons, more like laity than clergy, and so give occasion to light persons to be more licentious in their conversation and acts. Such priests are warned to wear seemly apparel, so as to be known at all times from lay persons. 13. No priest to be suffered to say mass or have any service unless first presented to the bp.'s officers. 14. Both in preaching and at other times to exhort parishioners to abstain from "swearing and blaspheming the holy name of God or any part of Christ's most precious body or blood," from cursing, scolding, &c., from talking and jangling in church, and from adultery, fornication, gluttony, and drunkenness. 15. That no priest use unlawful games or use frequently ale houses or taverns or suspect places, at unlawful times or with light company. 16. That in plague time no dead body be brought into church, except it be brought straight to the grave and buried. 17. That they permit no "common plays, games or interludes" to be played in churches or chapels; and if any persons violently enforce such games to be there played their names are to be reported to the bp.'s officers that they may be punished. 18. Priests shall not rehearse sermons made by other men within these 200 or 300 years, but shall take the Gospel or Epistle of the day, recite it all, desire the people to pray with them for grace after the usage of the Church of England, and then declare the same Gospel or Epistle according to the mind of some Catholic doctor; not affirming anything which cannot be shown in some ancient writer, and in no wise rehearsing any opinion not allowed, with a view to refute it, but leave that to preachers admitted by the King or bp. Further directions to lay stress on passages which may stir the people to good works and prayers, to take occasion to explain ceremonies of the Church, and not to rage or rail, but "coldly, discreetly, and charitably" extol virtue and suppress vice; also to explain what the prayers for the day are for, and declare the significance of the sacraments, and why the mass is to be so highly esteemed. The preacher is not to feed his audience with fables, and is in conclusion to sum up briefly the pith of his sermon. 19. To suffer no person under the degree of a bp. to preach, unless he have the licence of the King or the bp., and shall produce and show it before beginning his sermon. 20. To provide themselves with copies of these injunctions.
ii. A list furnished to curates in the same year 1542, of prohibited books. (fn. 3)
