680. Wymounde Carew to John Gate.
His brother, Thomas Carew, has shipped certain tin for Rone (Rouen) and with others stays at Powle for fear of robbers of the sea. His ship sails well, and would be safer alone than if all went together. Desires him to move some of those appointed to the sea to lie, in the defence of this tin, between Powle and Depe, and send word either to John Capelyn at Southampton or to John Carew at Powle. Begs him to prefer Thos. Gye to be a captain on the sea; there are few better in England, and he has small living now that the writer's park is disparked. Here is a Dutch gentleman called Crosebek, whose wages, with those of other Dutchmen who are absent, are detained by the writer, on the King's warrant. Desires him, if Crosebek fails in his suit to have wages again, to move Mr. Wroysely or others of the Council, that the writer may have a new warrant only for them that be here now. Has received the full amount of his warrant, and some of them are in their own country and may not return. Begs commendations to his brother Deny. Blechynlee, 26 Aug.

681. Rutland and his Council to the Council.
Yesterday, after writing from Darneton, made such haste that he reached Newcastle at 7 p.m. At Darneton, received letters from the King of the 22nd, to fulfil the contents of which more money must be sent with speed. Meanwhile will be doing with what he has. Encloses letters received from the North this Saturday, which he dared not open, as they were addressed to the Council. Asks instructions about opening letters. Grain is here very dear, and must be sent to Berwick from elsewhere, or the garrisons there and Rutland's company could not continue. A great force sent without provision would consume all the victual at Berwick and Carlisle, and Newcastle is so destitute of grain that it cannot be provided in any short time. Received no copy of Sir Thos. Wharton's letters in the King's of 22 Aug. Last night wrote to Berwick and Carlisle to know the state of the Borders.

683. Wallop to the Council.
In his last, of the 24th, wrote of Mons. de Vandosme's camp, and that, on the return of his man sent to the Great Master, he expected to learn more of Mons. Dorleance, the prince Orrenge, Mons. de Bure, and the Clevoiez. This morning his said servant returned, saying that Orleans had taken Ivoyre, but his further intention was uncertain. The Clevoiez were, within these two days, beside Mesiers, and purpose to join Vandosme, who returns towards Flanders to besiege Bappame. Orrenge and De Bure have broken up their camp in Luxemburg and march towards De Rieulx. The servant saw some of their horsemen already at Doway and Arras; and 4,000 lanceknights are near Doway, and De Rieulx goes thither with all his horsemen to begin his camp. Sends the servant to declare further, and encloses a letter he brought from De Rieulx.
Yesterday mustered the 300 men here in crew, viz., 200 of the lord Deputy's and 100 under the treasurer and the lieutenant of the Castle, all right tall men, well ordered and warlike appointed. Would that all come to Guisnes were so well ordered. Most of them "came without swords, in white coats homely trimmed, saving those that came with Mr. Ponynges, and those sent from Mr. Long, who be tall men and right warlike trimmed, yet lacking swords the more part of them. And those that came from my lord Chancellor and Mr. Chancellor of th'Augmentations, be tall men, and many fair archers. I was so bold to write unto them both to send them swords, as also cloth to make them hose of their colours." The bp. of Ely's men will show better when well trimmed, and the Bishop has authorised their captain to bestow upon them what Wallop thinks good. If others do the like he will soon amend them. There are no swords here. Calais, 26 Aug. Signed.

688. Sir Ant. St. Leger to Henry VIII.
On 31 July, Desmond arrived at Waterford, whereupon St. Leger (who was in Ossorie pacifying differences between Ormond and the lord of Upper Ossorie) came to Kilkenny and received the King's letters from him. He declared his noble entertainment. Intend, within ten or twelve days, to advance towards his country to help good order there and in the towns of Cork and Kinsale, and will then "spend a time for the perfection of Leinster." Sends a present of hawks (specified). Does not write of occurrants, as the Council is writing. If Irishmen's promises are to be trusted, Oneil, Obrien, the lord of Upper Ossorie and others shall visit the King ere long. Oneil's eldest and best son is with St. Leger for that purpose, and has sent for his father to repair to Dublin.
Is ashamed so often to write for money, but affairs here are sore hindered for lack of it. Would have been in Odonelles country and Connaught ere this but for lack of money. The old lady of Ormonde is dead. The lord late of Kilmanan is sick and will hardly escape. His death will save the King 500 mks. st. of pension. Certifies that the late master of Any, for whom, as the King wrote, Desmond sued to be bp. of Emolie (which bpric. lies about Limerick, where he was born), is a very honest man and will do much good in the country. Dublin, 27 Aug. 34 Hen. VIII. Signed. P.S.—Since the above was written, Oneil arrived at Dublin and declared his wish to visit the King, and how some had dissuaded him because of the report of war with France and Scotland, but that nothing would let him to go if he had money to furnish himself honestly. Borrowed 200 mks. for him of the merchants, to be repaid in kine; to levy which his son and divers of the retinue are now sent. Asks whether to suffer more Irishmen to go thither. Is the bolder to do so because the King wrote that such of the nobility as sued for great things should be sent over. Trusts that, ere Michaelmas, Obrien, lord FizWilliam and the baron of Upper Ossorie, before called Magilpatrike, shall be with the King. The latter brings his son, a goodly child, to give to the King, and will repair with Oneil or not long after. Signed.

689. Deputy Chancellor, and Vice-Treasurer Of Ireland to Henry VIII.
At their arrival at the lord of Upper Ossorie's house, to which they repaired on the 1st inst., the Deputy received a letter from Obrien declaring his wish to go to the King. His going would have a good effect on other Irishmen, as the King's entertainment of Desmond has. Wrote before, advising the establishment of a council of learned men about Limerick and Waterford. Explain, at length, how this can be done without charge to the King, by appointing to it those who have fees out of the liberty of Wexford and by the resumption of the charter of the city of Waterford, for which, as Parliament begins shortly after Michaelmas, they send an act of Parliament, to be returned under the Great Seal with the King's letter addressed to the whole Parliament to pass it. The reason that no others of the Council are privy to this letter is lest they of Waterford should hear of it and make suit to the contrary, "for they give here so large fees that they be greatly favoured."
Give a scheme for the establishment of a resident Council at Dublin, by utilising the Cathedral church of Christchurch, which is unnecessary, as there is the other well endowed Cathedral of St. Patrick's. Have stayed delivering the King's grant to the late prior and canons of Christchurch to be a dean and canons, and have spoken with the Dean, (fn. 2) now appointed, an Englishman born, who would take a pension of 50l. until preferred, within two years, to a benefice of that value in England. Ask instructions in this. Dublin, 27 Aug. 34 Hen. VIII. Signed : Antony Sentleger : John Alen : Will'm Brabazon.

R. O. St. P., III. 431. 690. Government Of Ireland.
The King having exhausted infinite treasure for the reformation of Ireland without success, now that most of the inhabitants are brought to obedience, it is very necessary to set forth the order ensuing, viz. :—
(1) Councils should be established in the West and North, the earls of Ormond and Desmond and the abp. of Casshell being of the former, and Oneill, Odonyll and others of the nobility there of the latter. (2) The captains retained here should be stationed at Knockfergus or Wolderflitt, Alloon in Westmeath, Wiklow and Arklow. Arklow should be had, in exchange, from Ormond; and, with a captain there, most of Leinster, "being the gall of this land," would be reformed. (3) The bps. of Dublin and Meath and such as favour the Gospel should instruct the Irish bishops and cause them to renounce Popish doctrine. (4) The pardoning of felonies for fines, and other enormities used here among the Irish, make the King's laws sound strange. It should therefore be ordered that all unlawful customs be abolished, and the "moderation" of the King's laws referred to the Deputy and Council. (5) Religious houses under Oneyll, Odonyll and other Irish lords should be suppressed and suits to Rome prohibited, and search made at Olderflitt or Knockfergus to enforce this. (6) Irish Scots, called "Redshankes," daily come into the north of Ireland and purchase castles and peels on the sea coast. They should be expelled from the country, "the rather because they greatly covet to populate the same, being most vile in their living of any nation next Irishmen." (7) The captain at Knockfergus or Wolderflytt should have a bark to keep the seas and prevent the coming in of Scots. Signed : John Travers.

691. Wallop to the Council.
Being at Calais but two days, some disorder has been among the soldiers here, and therefore he has taken order with Mr. Ponynges to appoint a provost marshal. With the advice of the Treasurer and Surveyor chose Mr. Awdeley, who said he would gladly do any service to which he was appointed, but thought himself unmeet for that room, "being of his own nature too pitiful." Thinks he would accept it if the King were to write to him to do so, and he would here gain experience to execute the room for a greater number, even a camp of 10,000; but his living should be somewhat augmented.
Encloses a letter received this day from Mons. de Torsy (contents recapitulated). The malefactors who lately misused themselves within the King's pale deserved greater punishment. Asks how to use Frenchmen or Burgundians who take each other, or their cattle, within the King's pale. Last week took 10 or 12 Burgundians, who had taken certain Frenchmen and their cattle, which Wallop caused to be restored, but did not punish the men. Their guide was an Englishman, who is detained in prison here, although he has long served in their wars and was a soldier in Tourneham when it was given up, against his opinion. He is "a right tall personage and hardy fellow called John Baker, sometime a soldier in Callais." Asks what to do with him.
Once again reminds them that guns and gunners are needed for the travers wall, now finished, and other bulwarks. Guisnes, 27 Aug. Signed.

Has received his letters, and has "tenu en cul de fosse lez malfaicteurs au pain et a l'eau, et bannys sur peine de la hart de eulz trouver es pais de pardesa, et partir incontinent." Desires to live in friendship with him; and no more footmen shall go into his country without written licence. Had news last night (arssoir) that Mons. de Vendosme has sent home part of his footmen, who were levied on the frontier, retaining some of the men of the ordinary pay and reinforcing the garrisons of horsemen. Yvoy is taken by composition honourable for the Burgundians, who were 1,500 lanceknights, 1,000 footmen of the country and 130 men of arms; who left, baggage safe, mounted and armed, upon oath not to serve the Emperor against the King for two years. Longueval's band has arrived here, having by the way attacked and defeated eleven ensigns of the prince of Orange's lanceknights and almost captured the Prince. Ardres, 27 Aug. Signed.

693. Edmond Harvel to Henry VIII.
Wrote on the 9th inst. A strange case has since been discovered, of execrable prodition, by two secretaries of the Signory and Augustin Labondy, sometime factor for Cesare Fregosa; who, corrupted by the French king, have been long disclosing all the state secrets to the Frenchmen and Turks, who thus knew the Venetian ambassador's secret commission to give Napoli and Malversia to the Turk, (fn. 3) but with extreme contention. The Turk then was so greedy of peace that those fortresses need not have been given if the Turk had not known from Rincon, the French orator, the Venetians' deliberation; and the delivery of them has cost the Venetians such loss and dishonour that their indignation can be imagined. The French are now incredibly destestable here, being called dogs and proditors of Christendom and monsters. Of the secretaries, who are cousins named Cavaza, one is fled disguised as a friar, the other is taken. Labondi fled to the French ambassador's house, the 19th inst., where the officers of the Signory sent to demand him were resisted and hurt. The Signory besieged the house all that night, and next day, upon their threat to burn it, the French orator delivered them Labondi, who is put to extreme torments to discover his adherents, he knowing all the corrupted men here, and being payer for such practices. The secretary confessed all he knew without torment. Describes how the ambassador's house was beset for three days, and also the honour paid to the accuser. These things came to light by the diligence of Loigi Badoar, who concluded the peace with the Turk, and, being suspected of using fraud in his legacy, was imprisoned shortly after his return from Constantinople. He has now cleared himself. The Stroci who were settled here are commanded to avoid the Dominion, being in public hate, both for the taking of Maran and the French faction which they follow.
Letters from Constantinople, of 26 July, give variable news, the French affirming that the Turk's navy of 120 galleys, 80 of which are to serve the French, shall issue about the 12th or 15th inst.; and the Venetians concluding that it will not issue this year, which is more probable, as the season is too far past for galleys. A bassa with many horses is at Sophia, not far from the Drava, to succour Buda if necessary. The Christian host which goes to Buda is flourishing and confident. Ferdinando is denied the money he demanded at Noremberg, he being esteemed an evil husband in money matters. The duke of Pranswike is fled to Noremberg with three horses, leaving the Landgrave victorious; who will afterwards convert his host of 40,000 men to Buda, or else to Flanders, in the Emperor's favour. The Marquis of Guasto intends to take the field with 10,000 Almains and as many Spaniards and Italians.
The Bishop of Rome sends Card. Contarin to the Emperor and Sadoleto to the French king; but Contarin was on "in point of death." The Bishop will intimate a General Council, "by all November," in Trent; but men laugh at such vanities. The Bishop is come to Perusa, in despair because the Imperial orator presses him to publish censures against the French king as enemy of the Christian state.
The Signory salute the King. They are in great heaviness with these processes and examinations, and are sure the Turks "will not navigate against winter." Venice, 27 Aug. 1542.
P.S.—Is just informed that the Signory will send an ambassador shortly

Encloses letters, received at midnight and since, from Sir Wm. Eure, Sir Geo. Lawson and Robt. Collingwoode, the last showing what the Scots mind to do with the prisoners, and where they bend their power at present, and the others the state of Berwick and provision of grain there. Unless other provision is sent Northumberland is in great danger, for God will not send "provision of the ground" for three weeks yet. As the Borders in Northumberland are weakened by the late misfortune, has written for 400 Yorkshire men to the President at York. Intends to remain at Alnwick.
This day arrived Rosye, a herald of Scotland, with letters to the Scottish ambassador and the Council at York. Opened the latter and encloses it, as he thinks the King should see it. Newcastle, 28 Aug., 3 p.m. Signed : Thomas Rutland : John Haryngton : John Markham : Jo. Uvedale.
P.S.—The Scottish herald comes not in post, but on his own horse. He said one of the causes of his coming was for safe conduct for two ambassadors to be sent out of Scotland, and showed a packet addressed to their ambassador. On receipt of Eure's letters concerning the entry of John Car, of Wark, sent 100 men thither under Thos. Waterton and Nic. Tempest, albeit Thos. Gowre says Wark castle is not tenable. Begs to know the King's pleasure, for they are two honest gentlemen he has sent thither. George Heron says 2,000 men are come to Jedwourth and Kelsale, whereof his father, prisoner in Scotland, sent him word that he saw 1,000 horse.

696. John Car to Rutland.
Was yesterday at his "entry" and found his taker so good to him that he let him home again on his own bond and sureties in Scotland. Oliver Sengular and other the King's servants of Scotland came to Gedworth on Friday, and had away with them on Sunday Sir Robt. Bowys, Sir Cuthbert Ratlefe, Sir Roger Lasseles, Sir John Wederryngton, John Herron and another, probably Wm. Bucton. The first journey Huntley makes in England will be to besiege Wark. Asks, therefore, for aid and that he may have 50 men of his own choosing. John Tempest and his brother Lasseye, who had the rule of 100 men in the castle, are still in Scotland, and of their men 50 come home, with great hurts and without weapon or harness.

697. Francis I. to Marillac.
Has just received his letter in cipher of the 16th. Since L'Aubespine's return has received his letters of the 1st, 5th, and 10th; and delayed replying to him upon L'Aubespine's coming, because desirous of speaking first with the English ambassador, who had gone before to Lyons, as Marillac would see by the reply sent on the 10th, with a letter to the King of England, of which a copy is enclosed in case the despatch has not come to his hands, which was entrusted to the English ambassador. Has since sent another despatch on the 25th (copy enclosed). Has, by his last cipher, seen how part of the army by sea there had left, equipped for war, to convoy the wool fleet which goes every year to Calais. As such an equipage could not be for that alone, Marillac shall learn what has become of it; and also if the rest of the equipage has gone towards Scotland with the men and provisions of war of which he writes. He shall likewise watch where the men of war who are levied march; and, if possible, advertise the King of Scotland of everything. Notes what he writes of the lord Privy Seal and milord de Chesney coming hither. He shall write "ce qui en sera;" and, above all, give continual advice to Vendosme and Du Biez, to take order on the frontier of Picardy. Will not fail to do as Marillac writes.

698. Charles V. to Chapuys.
Besides what Chapuys will see by preceding letters, the king of France has been so shameless as to publish war against him, since the 10th ult., in worse terms than could be used against pagans, and has already invaded Roussillon and laid a siege, which the Emperor hopes will get him as little profit as his past enterprises. Received letters yesterday from his ambassador at Rome, stating that the Pope was despatching Cardinal Contareno to him and Card. Sadolet to France, to persuade peace; and is sending both to Rome and Contareno, to stop his coming, as he will not be received. This proves that the French king on the one side "fait le brave" and on the other seeks to resume the practice of the peace. Chapuys may declare this to the King of England as seems best; and shall forward the Emperor's letters to the Queen of Hungary if the courier comes to him, who is charged to go direct to her, if possible, and send Chapuys his letters.

Has received his letters, the last dated 16 July, and thereby learnt his arrival with the king of Romaynes and gentle entertainment. May need his services in the beginning of next year; and therefore, as the effect of that expedition will be seen before this reaches him, directs him to take leave about Halontyde and return home through Almayne. He shall enquire of the baron of Heidick "seriously" how many Almains he could bring to serve the King, and when he could be in England or at Calais, and whence and how he would come, getting his answer in writing. He shall also enquire what captains of Almain dwell commodiously to serve the King if required; and assay any such who may be in the army, or in his way through Germany, to know whether they would serve Henry, what numbers they could furnish, &c. He is to conduct hither in wages 10 taborynes of the Hungarians fashion, one or two of whom to be able both to make and use the taborynes, 10 drums and 10 fifers; all money necessary will be delivered by the King's servant Guidenfingre, (fn. 4) who is written to to pay it.

This day, after midnight, received theirs of the 26th. Had already, thinking John Carr, of Wark, was stayed in Scotland, sent 100 men to Wark, as he wrote yesterday to the King. This morning, received a letter from John Carr (enclosed) showing his good courage to keep Wark, and has granted him his 50 men. Had already written to Sir Wm. Eure to furnish him with victuals; and to-day wrote again to Eure and Lawson, for that and for the garrison and workmen at Berwick, as instructed by the fourth article of the Council's said letters. Wrote to-day to the earl of Westmoreland, the chancellor of Duresme and Sir Geo. Conyers for 500 men out of the Bishopric to lie in Norhamshire, to be paid at Newcastle for 14 days, by which time lord Latimer with 1,000 men out of Yorkshire should arrive, and the 500 may be dismissed. Robt. Collingwood reports that the King of Scots' ordnance is arrived at Sowtrey, but three miles from Wark. Yesterday, Sir Thos. Wharton came to Newcastle and staid until 10 a.m. to-day.

706. Wallop to the Council.
This morning is advertised that Mons. de Vandosme, Mons. de Guyse and the marshal de Beez are at St. Quyntynes. Mons. de Guyse brought with him the lanceknights that were with Mons. Dorleance and the Clevoiez that came from Antwerp, conducted by Mons. Longvalle, who is also there. Lanceknights and Clevoiez together number 14,000, and 1,400 horsemen. The adventurers and legioners that were with Vandosme are all discharged. Those of Mons. de Kerkey's band, who should have come to Arde, are appointed to Hesding. The horsemen with Vandosme, besides the said Clevoiez, are but 200 men of arms. Cannot learn their intention, but yesterday sent one to the Clevoiez to know it. Learns, by him that brought these news, that Mons. Dorleance is retired; and the bailly of Guisnes, at his late being at Arde, brought like report (enclosed).
Will, to-morrow, send a gentleman to the Great Master with a present of a gelding, to entertain the amity and learn how his camp is reinforced. Apparently, he "daily reinforceth; for all these frontiers of Picardy and Boullonoiez continually fleeth with their goods and cattle towards Bullen, and to that side the sea." Guysnes, 30 Aug. Signed.

R. O. 2. [The bailly of Guisnes' report.]
Being at Arde this Monday, 28 Aug., a friend showed me that Mons. de Focquelsolles was at Terrewyn with 30 men of arms of Mons. de Bies' band; and that Mons. de Vandome re-assembles his camp, to which Captain Longavall and many Clevoys, lanceknights, and Danes are appointed. The Danes are 600 horsemen, who carry haccabuts at the arson of their saddles, swords on the one side and daggers on the other, and, in their hands, weapons like boar spears, such as the French call espues. The band of the duke of Orleans is bestowed in garrisons at Yvoye, Tienville in Lewsenbourghe and other frontier fortresses there. There shall shortly come to Arde 30 men of arms of Mons. de Kerkee's band to join the 50 of Mons. de Torsee's now there. A weak place by the lower gate shall be immediately "rampared," casemates of brick called moyneaux made to flank the dikes and the dikes cleansed from the Green bulwark upwards.
