846. John Cake to [the Lord Admiral?].
Advertises his "good lordship" that on Thursday, St. Matthew's Day, the Small Gallion, Dragon, and other small vessels with ordnance, corn, &c., weighed anchor from Yarmouth with a fair wind for Berwick, but a great storm came on, with foul misty weather, which dissevered them. The Dragon lost her boat and two men, another small vessel had to throw overboard 1 qr. of wheat, and the Mary Flower, one Gervise master, laden deep with ordnance, grounded on the Cocles, and had to throw a brass piece overboard, where five days before the Thomas Dowtty was totally lost. The Mary Flower has a great leak, and is transferring her ordnance and stuff to another ship at Yarmouth, and we tarry here for its coming. Scarborough, 26 Sept.

849. Wallop to the Council.
Wrote of late that the footmen who served Vandosme in Boullonoies should repair to Bullen for wages, and then lie on the Borders about Hesding, fearing the coming of the Burgundians; and that Mons. de Beez was gone thitherward before. Learns now that Vandosme has begun his camp again at Daussey, beside Dorlance, assembling all horse and foot that can be made in Picardy and Bullonoyes, and all the Clevoiez and Allemaygnes that were with Mons. d'Orleans, saving those that so shamefully surrendered the town of Luxembourgh, whom the French king has "abandoned" out of his countries. All the towns that Mons. d'Orleans had gotten are now in the Emperor's hands, and the Burgundians marching towards these parts. It is bruited in France that the Dolphin has gotten Perpynion, and 20,000 on both sides are slain.
Was advertised sundry ways of the late assembly De Beez made for a course in the county of Guisnes; and, to feel what he would say, wrote to him that henceforth he would not trust their peace, "seeing they would make such sudden invasions, but would ride a hawking as I have before done in time of war with a good 'skulte' of horsemen." Encloses his reply, made yesterday. With Mr. Rous, treasurer, and the Surveyor, takes musters of the 300 footmen at Calais to-day; and the lord Deputy and others of the Council do the like at Guisnes on Thursday. After which musters "it were a good time to overrun all Boullonoies, their power of horsemen and footmen being now away." Newneham Bridge, 26 Sept. Signed.

851. The Privy Council to the Commissioners at York.
Have reported to the King the Commissioners' letters of the [24th] (fn. 1) inst. Where they desire to know which two of them shall repair to the Borders if they agree with the Scots; remind them that the King named them "all four or two at the least," but since the lord Privy Seal may have business one day in another place, and should be here to prepare for it, his former appointment being, as the King thinks, much altered, he is to return hither, and the rest to resort to the Borders, where, after they have done, Mr. Browne must attend for the king of Scots. Send a letter for John Cary, vice-admiral, to assemble the ships of war at such place as the Commissioners appoint. The French are preparing ships at Havre to send into Scotland, and a Scot has conveyed powder and munition in a hoy from Flanders. The King rigs forth two more ships for the war, which shall depart in 3 or 4 days.

852. Chapuys to the Queen Of Hungary.
Has received her letters of the 11th, 16th, and 19th inst. with the despatch addressed to Thoison d'Or, which he at once forwarded to Bristol, where he will doubtless still be. To-day, in pursuance of her orders, has been to the King to give him the news of that country, so as to induce him to grant the aid. To remove his chief excuse —that he has no news from Spain and knows not how he stands with the Emperor, has shown him private letters from merchants stating that before the 10th ult. the bp. of Westminster had taken his leave with as favourable an answer as could be wished. After much discourse the King showed himself glad to hear of the Emperor's successes, and had no doubt the French would get well beaten about Perpignan if the garrison were not scant of provisions. As to the aid, he answered as before, saying that if it were as the letters stated, some of his people would have brought the news, the matter being of such importance; and nothing Chapuys could say about the bad weather and contrary winds prevented his complaining over and over again of the delay in answering him, especially for the enterprise of which Mons. du Reulx spoke to Chapuys, and that the best opportunity was lost, and it suited him very ill to remain in suspense, not knowing how he stood with the Emperor, while the French, taking him for the Emperor's ally, had done mischief at Guisnes, which Du Byes lately thought of invading. The captain of Guisnes (fn. 2) was incessantly desiring licence to invade the French territory, now when the French garrisons were all gone to Dorlens (Doullens); but he would not grant it till he had a good answer from the Emperor. Things might still be arranged to the Emperor's advantage, and when that answer came an interview ought to be held between the Queen and him.
Asked him, if it was true that Yvoix had been recovered from the enemy, what our army ought to do next. He said they ought at once to march to Mazieres, and lay waste the country without stopping before any fortified town or penetrating further into France, for the French might give them opportunities in order to cut off their retreat. He was sure that the French, expecting him to take the field, had made up their minds not to put obstacles in his way, till he had passed the Somme; and he thought Vendosme, if he took the field, should be allowed to engulf himself in the Emperor's territory, and it would not be difficult to destroy him with the troops sent by the Queen to Hainault. If, therefore, powers came from the Queen to treat with him he would be glad to furnish men and money to any amount.
Got him by and by to speak about Scotland, to feel what likelihood there was of peace or war with that country. He told Chapuys confidentially that he believed there would be no war, for the Scotch ambassadors had already agreed to release all the prisoners, and make some compensation for damage done. They had even agreed to a permanent league without reserving France, as they have always done hitherto, and promised that their King would come to him in this city before Christmas. The only difficulty was about hostages, about which the ambassadors asked for two days' respite to send to Scotland, offering meanwhile to remain themselves as hostages. The King expects answer by Sunday next, and says that it will be greater honour for him to achieve this than to gain a battle. Agreed with him as to that, provided he could only rely on the Scots, for though, now they were alone and without aid from France and the other allies, they spoke fair, they might become more intractable later if France, Sweden, or Denmark assisted them. The King said that the talk of the said league was only a brag, and when the King of Scots came hither all would be set in order and surety. Had some further conversation on small topics, which he has no time to report. London, 27 Sept. 1543.

853. Commissioners at York to Henry VIII.
Late yesternight the ambassadors received answer from their master. Met this morning and demanded what answer they had of the amity and meeting. They showed two commissions, the one to treat of the meeting, restraining the place to York or Newcastle; the other a power to remain in England until the articles concluded for the meeting were performed, revoking former commissions to treat of any peace. Showed them, at great length, that since they limited the meeting to places which Henry would never condescend to (for, after coming to York last year and being deluded, he would surely never come hither at this season), and their commission to treat of amity was revoked, although princes at breach were never wont to meet without peace or truce first concluded, it was plain that the army must proceed in their journey. They, being sorry the matter was taken so hotly, offered to agree that their master should come to London or thereabouts. Said that was but trifling, seeing they had no commission to bind him; and at last they brought out their instructions, signed by their master and under his signet, that, in case of sticking, they might agree to other place than the commission named. Told them that was a warrant to them to pass their commission, but not to us to conclude. They said that at the meeting all should undoubtedly be concluded touching rebels and bounds, and the amity so made that they should for no prince or potentate living break with England. Declared to them the article in last instructions showing how France in the last treaty left them out. (fn. 3) They asserted that "at this there would be no sticking at your meeting." Told them a treaty made at the meeting would be vain, their master not being at liberty. They answered that their master in his own realm might make a commission to some of his subjects to treat and conclude amity, bearing date in his realm before he came forth, which he, at his coming, might make more strait, and then at his return confirm; whereas if they sticked to conclude amity before the meeting, the whole Council of Scotland would say What needs any meeting? Here Larmonthe said that albeit we set so little by the instructions they declared your nephew's inward heart, whereas the commission regarded outwardly his honor. Asked and obtained a copy (herewith); and, after much debate, they said they would despatch to their master, in all haste, for absolute commission without determining place; and offered to lie as pledges till all were performed, saying they thought their master would be at York about St. Andrew's Day, and with Henry before Christmas, and desiring that upon conclusion of the meeting the armies might be dissolved. Stuck to have the prisoners restored first of all. They replied that immediately upon the dissolving of the armies they should be restored, and would be restored before if Henry wrote to demand them.
They desire us to write for a commission for this meeting, as our commission speaks of peace and truce only. They will agree that their master shall come to London. Their Queen looks to take her chamber about Martinmas, and after the King sees "what will come of her," he will set forth. They say it cannot be brought to pass that earls should come as pledges.

As, in our other writings and commission, York or Newcastle is specified as the place of meeting, we pray you condescend to no other; but if the Commissioners of our dearest uncle, not regarding our honor, insist on the meeting at London, you may agree that, being come to York, we will at our uncle's desire come to London.

854. Commissioners at York to the Council.
Write to the King of their conference with the ambassadors of Scotland. Enclose copy of a letter they have received from John Care. Hear nothing of victual ships from London or Norfolk, or of 2,200 of Norfolk's men out of Norfolk and Suffolk, save that 240 are with difficulty come to Newcastle. The rest, shipped on Thursday last, were driven back. Remind them of the uncertainty of the coming of the ordnance and victual, which must be ground, brewed, and baked after it comes; also that the ill time of year comes sooner there than in the south, and through excessive rain, much corn here yet stands in the ground. Are most sorrowful at the state of things. Wrote in their last to know which two of them should repair to the Borders. The King shall have no loss by the tract of time taken with the Scots, provided they have his answer before Tuesday next, when money for conduct and coats is appointed to be paid to all except those who came with the Commissioners or from Wales. Have informed Suffolk of their proceedings, and received his answer that the King shall be at no great charges until he hears further.

Desires them to get him appointed one of the two that shall go northwards, and to consider that, to punish offenders there, he should have an honest company with, him, for he thinks many will be found faulty. In the event of agreement, if the King of Scots make such offer as he did to the earl of Northumberland for the punishment of Lidersdale, we doing the like for Tindale and Ridsdale, it should not be refused. If appointed to convey the King of Scots to the King, he must have support, as this journey has plucked the bottom out of his purse : "it is not 8d. a day that will find man and horse standing in the stable as all ours do here."

856. Southampton to Wriothesley.
Our letters to the King and to the Council show the present state with the Scots. No more victual has arrived; so that, if the King refuses these overtures and we go forward, I pray God that there be no lack of necessaries. Sir Thos. Wharton and others of experience in these marches, think that, at this late season of the year, in the country we have to enter (being barren, wild, cold and utterly ungarnished with wood) we shall lack fire to dress our victual; for they have unthacked their houses, intending, if we enter, either to burn the timber or carry it away. It is to be trusted that our ships may arrive in time with bread and drink and cheese; yet when that is spent and we driven to seethe or roast, and the men to lie on the wet ground, if we lack fire to dry them or warm their meat, I fear it will prove a pitiful case. Assures him that every man is willing to serve. Allowing time to bake and brew after the ships arrived, it will be three weeks ere they can enter. John Caries letter describes the mischance to the ship (fn. 4) with ordnance.
Had written thus far when Lermowthe sent Rhosse herald, requiring me to write to the King that if his master come all shall be wrought as he desires, and to beg him therefore not to stick in any light matters. York, 27 Sept., 7 p.m. Signed.

857. Edmond Harvel to Henry VIII.
Since his last, of the 24th, letters from Constantinople of 20 and 28 Aug. report that the Turk winters in Andrinopli, and sends men to succour Buda. Letters from Vienna, of the 13th inst., say that the Christian host is gone to give battle to Pest and Buda. There are 7,000 Turks in Pest, and 20,000 in Buda, but ill conditioned through pestilence and famine. The Christians abound in everything needful. Ferdinando goes from Vienna to Buda. A great number of Bohems have joined the Christian host, and 8,000 Hungarian horsemen are expected. The Marquis of Marignan commands the navy on the Danube, with 10,000 Italians under him. Five thousand Almains have gone from Geane towards Spain. 60 galleys are assembled at Geane. Guasto has taken towns near Turin, and greatly prospers. Lately 8,000 Swiches are gone to the French king, probably towards Parpignan, where the French "seemeth to have had evil rescontre." Venice, 27 Sept. 1542.

Sends daily 10 or 12 miles to the mills, but dare not leave the wheat in the mills at night for fear of stealing; for every night the mills are broken and corn stolen. On Tuesday morning, when the workmen were carting stone from Caram church to Wark castle, the Scots took three of the King's carts with horse and harness, without any rescue of John Car and his fifty men or other soldiers in Wark castle, none of whom were stirring.

862. Henry VIII. to the Commissioners at York.
Has received theirs of the 27th inst., with the schedule delivered by the Scottish ambassadors. As the Scots vary from the whole purport of their former promises, seeking apparently to gain time, he will briefly signify the conditions upon which the Commissioners shall arrest, and without which they must, with God's help, go forward in the intended enterprise and do, if not all that was determined at their departure, at least as much as seems feasible. First, the ambassadors must agree, in writing, to deliver the prisoners in Scotland at once, before the discharge of our army; for otherwise they might use them as hostages to redeem their pledges left here, and if they mean well they will not refuse this after so many fair offers to send them as a present. Second, they must agree, in writing, that their King shall repair to London before Christmas next, "without ifs or ands of his wife" (which might minister uncertainty, "considering the common error of women in reckoning their time"), or of further desire to be made at his coming to York, they three and some other nobleman (if possible) remaining as pledges. And since they will now agree upon no amity, but refer all to their King's coming, the pledges shall remain, after his return home, until his ratification of what shall be agreed is sent hither.
If the ambassadors, having commission to do so, roundly agree upon these points, you shall, upon knowledge that they have dissolved their army, dissolve ours both by sea and land, as instructed, and the garrisons after your repair to the Borders.
If, on the other hand, they will not fully agree, but seek new delays, you shall assemble the whole army and set forward. And if, for lack of victual (whereof we think that, by the time the army is assembled, you shall have as much as you thought necessary at your departure hence) or because of "the extreme weather and rain that hath fallen," you cannot accomplish the enterprise as first devised, you shall do some notable exploit in Scotland, devastating the Marsh and the Borders, and overthrowing [Lowmaben and] (fn. 5) all other holds thereabouts, and at the same time furnishing forth all the ships to go to the isles of Orkney and Shetland, and devastate the corn and cattle there, (fn. 6) and sending frequent news of your proceedings. In case the Scots, by their refusal of the above two articles, declare how they have dissembled with us, some honorable enterprise must be made to make them feel their fault, and make us think your pains and our money well employed. If the journey proceed, Suffolk must be warned to repair with speed to the Borders, according to the former appointment.

Browne is not furnished to receive the said King, having no liveries for his servants other than those of white frieze with red crosses, mostly worn with harness, nor silver vessel, nor apparel, and, as the ambassadors say their King will tarry until the Queen be delivered about St. Martin's Day, and not come until St. Andrew's Day, he (Browne) begs that he may meanwhile repair to the King for instructions, and to furnish himself. If not, he begs to have full instructions sent. There is no other news of the ships than they wrote before, to their great marvel and sorrow, the wind being now as contrarious as possible.

Blames himself for not well perusing their joint instructions, and writing as though he thought he was to accompany the King of Scots.
