210. The Privy Council to Lisle.
The King, upon consideration of last letters from Suffolk, thinks Lisle should write to Arren according to the enclosed minute,—unless he is certified that there are no such ships rigged forth. Considering the great assembly at the Parliament now to be holden in Scotland, to reassure those of his party there, the King has commanded Suffolk to leave 500 men still upon the Borders.

211. H. Lord Maltravers to Henry VIII.
Ships with munitions have brought to Staples 11 pieces of great ordnance, many tents and much wine. Of the 11 pieces, which are all mounted and landed, 4 are double cannons and the rest culverins and small pieces. To Patatin near Muttrell are come vessels laden with wine. At Muttrell are many labourers and 400 men of war. The general musters at Amiens are prorogued from the 28th inst. indefinitely. At Ard, men of war, pioneers and women labour in cleansing the dikes. The captain there is minded to establish the market without the town. Part of the town is fallen down; and through the deepness of the ditch and great weight of earth against the wall, the wall is rent and like to fall into the ditch. Calais, 26 Feb.

213. The Privy Council to Lisle.
Although the King's letters of the 24th willed him, according to previous letters addressed to Suffolk, to repair to the King's presence, his Majesty, in view of Lisle's intelligence with Arran and experience of the Borders (and considering that Mr. Brian is revoked and can at need look to the sea) has resolved that he shall remain still at Alnewyk, and shall have 100 men to attend him, besides the number appointed in the Council's letters to Suffolk to remain for the stay of the country.

214. Suffolk and Others to the Council.
Received on the 25th, their letters of the 23rd declaring the King's pleasure for the dissolution of the garrisons, upon the arrival of the abstinence for the part of Scotland; which, yesternight, Rotesaye herald brought, together with a letter to Suffolk from Arran, copy enclosed. The making of the new seal appears to have caused the delay. Will at once proclaim the abstinence on the Borders and dissolve the garrisons, except those appointed to stay Tyndale and Ryddesdale, by advice of the lord Warden, whom they expect to-morrow. Suffolk will then write to Arrayn as instructed; meanwhile he has written to Anguishe, Sir Geo. Douglas and Sir Thos. Wharton. Yesternight arrived the King's letters to Arreyn and to the lord Warden, with copies, and also letters from Mr. Wryothesley to Suffolk. Intend to send Arran his by Rotesaye herald and think it will be very acceptable. Suffolk also writes (copy enclosed) to Arren by Rotesaye. Enclose letters received from Sir Thos. Wharton and the lord Warden. The latter shows strange matter against Lionel Graye, porter of Berwick, "but surely there is likelihood of deadly malice against him." Will examine the truth of it, and have required the lord Warden, who is gone to Berwick about it, to put a substantial man in Graye's office for the time. Enclose copy of his letter found in a pew in Berwick church.
P.S., in Sadler's hand.—Rotesaye herald says that the Bible, New Testament, and like books in English, as the Prymer and the Psalter, are now marvellously desired in Scotland and a cartload of them would be bought there. Newcastle, 27 Feb. Signed by Suffolk, Durham, Parr and Sadler.

215. Suffolk to Arran.
By Rotesaye herald, the bearer, received his letters of 21 Feb. with the abstinence for the part of Scotland, which he will proclaim on the Borders and elsewhere. Will redress attemptates according to the Border laws, as Arran has promised to do, notwithstanding that, since the abstinence was proclaimed, the King's subjects have been burnt and harried, for which he expects Arran will make redress.
Now that things begin to frame so well for the benefit of both realms, exhorts him to proceed as he has begun, and to accelerate the sending of his ambassadors. Forwards the King's letters received since Rotesaye's coming, answering his for prorogation of the entry of the prisoners. Newcastle.

216. Wallop to the Council.
In answer to theirs of 24 Feb., requiring him to declare the authority he had, "being in the crew at Guysnes," and how he used it; was put by Norfolk, at his return from Hesdin and Dorlance, in garrison at St. Omer with 1,000 footmen; and came thence to Guisnes, where lord Vaulx discharged him of as many as he (Vaulx) had in his crew, viz. 600. Had the rest only at lord Vaulx's command, who once (doubting a siege) bestowed part of them as he thought good and set Wallop and the rest in the keep. Doubted the keeping of it, for it was then mineable; but now by the King's device, what for the Three Corner bulwark and Purton's bulwark, it cannot be mined. Had no authority but to do his best to keep the town, and to that end made a hedge about it and part of his men lay within the park hedge. Refers to Mr. Gage who was deputy under lord Vaulx and the lord Privy Seal that last died. (fn. 1) Lord Vaulx had under him certain horsemen, of whom Sir Thos. Palmer and Guyot were captains.
Hears that the French king is not yet come to Compeigne. On Saturday afternoon three footmen of the garrison of Arde, returning home from Guisnes, met and quarrelled with two Englishmen coming from Anderne, who, seeing they were two to three and one of the Frenchmen had a crossbow bent, retired; "and therewith the Frenchmen cried Tue, Tue, and shot a quarrel at one of them, striking him into the body." He plucked it out and ran furiously to the Frenchmen, of whom he wounded and overcame two with a halbert and the third ran away. That night the Englishman who was shot died, and two days after, the Frenchman that shot him. The other wounded Frenchman is here to be ordered by justice; which cannot be obtained from the French for like offences, they having lately murdered two other Englishmen, as Wallop has written. Heard on Wednesday last of a proclamation at Bullen that none should speak of wars with England.
Of late Peter Haysilburghe and his brother, soldiers here, dwelling at Ballingham, in complaining of the restraint of certain corn they had bought in France, said that victuals, especially herring, had been conveyed to Arde from Calais since Lent, mostly carried along the King's river by Matthew Canell, of Ballingham. States his investigations proving this matter, and has warned the lord Deputy, and now locks the turnpike at Anderne nightly. The said Matthew has been supplying coals to Arde since the fortifications began, and has some at St. Peter's and Ballingham, which is now restrained. He is a Norman born, said to be a burgess of Arde, and has a house there and lands in France, whereas he was but a poor man until he married a widow at Ballingham. Keeps him till the King's pleasure be known, as well for this matter as for certain words which the Captain of Arde "should speak unto him," viz., "Matthew, regarde bien votre promesse que vous ne m'oblye point." Calais, 27 Feb. Signed.

217. Paget to Henry VIII.
On Saturday last, obtained audience for Monday, when he spoke first with the Cardinal of Tournon, who said four of Henry's ships had chased a French galleon, adding that it was ill done to minister such piques, and that a dozen ships could not stop their passage upon the sea, who could, if they list, furnish out a hundred. Answered that he knew nothing of it and was sorry that "some of us ministers" between the Kings acted so indiscreetly. Tournon said that was true and lately one or two of Marillac's letters showed that he had proceeded "passionately," and enlarged upon their good opinion of Paget.
After dinner presented Henry's letter to the French king, who said it was for Paget's return and asked if his successor were come. When Paget replied no, and that he would leave first, the King was so overcome with passion that he could not speak. So, "to ease him," Paget said that he had been troubled with sciatica and a disease not meet to be named, which gave him pain in riding, and that when he came to reside as ambassador he was promised his return in a twelvemonth. "And will you go (quoth he) before your successor come? And when cometh your successor? Where is he? Is he already come into France? Or is he coming?" Paget said he could not tell, and showed Henry's letters, in which it was written that the dean of York should come, whereat the King seemed much relieved. Details conversation (verbatim) in which the King said he perceived that his ambassador had not done his part, but he trusted that his good brother would not stay to conclude with him on that account. Paget said Henry had been earnestly minded to do so until the ambassador broke it off. The King said he never commissioned him to do that, and had promised to consider the inequality of dote and dowry; but he feared there were other lets, for he heard from every quarter that his good brother would be his enemy. To speak frankly, he knew that the Emperor had married his children with the King of Portugal and reserved himself for Henry's daughter, to get money; but if Henry joined him (Francis) in this marriage he should both receive money and remain friends with the Emperor, whereas if he joined the Emperor he must disburse money and be Francis's enemy, who would then annoy him to the uttermost; and if the Emperor and Francis joined, where would he be? It were better to let the Emperor and him alone; "and if my good brother will join with me, tell him I will stick upon no money matters, he shall rule me as he list." Paget said he did well to speak so frankly, but things had been very ill handled touching the ships. The King said the matters of the ships were trifles which Henry might order as he list, as Paget might say at his return and he would confirm it by his ambassador.
Paget then took leave, the King granting readily that Henry's sommelier at Bordeaux should be suffered to depart with the wines he had bought there for Henry, and that Mr. Norrey, arrested there, should be released; and also granting Paget his passport, who then departed openly, taking leave of Card. Tournon and the secretaries. Was scant out of the Court gate when he was recalled and found Card. Tournon and Mons. Bayard. Tournon said the King had changed his mind and desired Paget not to depart until his successor came, both for the satisfaction of the world and because his present was not ready. Paget asked why his departing offended them more than Castillon's did Henry, "leaving nobody there behind him," and said it was no little displeasure to him to be thus stopped, and he would not stop unless constrained, and then would rather be stayed at Boulogne than here. To this the Cardinal agreed, saying that to-morrow morning he should receive the despatch for his master's wines and for the herald, and a gentleman to accompany him to Boulogne with command to Mons. de Bees to make him good cheer.
This morning at Melun arrived a gentleman of Tournon's called Cambey, to accompany him to Amiens, bringing a letter to the king of Navarre for the despatch of the wines from Bordeaux. Has sent it thither together with a letter for the deliverance of Mr. Norrey. Cambey has his King's letters under stamp to all officers, &c., to entertain Paget well. May yet be suffered to pass and has written a letter (copy enclosed) to Tournon in that behalf. If so, will be at Calais on the 8th March, otherwise it may be concluded that he is arrested by the way. Paris, 27 Feb. Signed.

219. The Privy Council to Suffolk.
The King has seen his letters of the 25th, and answers :— (1) That he approves Suffolk's advertisement to Wharton touching Don Laneryk, who, as great stay to Anguishe, need not be further called upon for his entry; but Suffolk must enquire in his next letters to Anguishe whether the said Laneryk is indeed such a friend. (2) He marvels that they of Scotland have not sent the abstinence for their part; but even if it come four or five days late it is to be accepted. If it be not come, the incourses lately made by Scots are to be revenged; and indeed the King thinks Suffolk has been more gentle in that behalf than needed, seeing that the abstinence was but conditional upon their acceptance or refusal.

220. Sir Thos. Wharton to Suffolk and Others.
In pursuance of Suffolk's letters of 25 Feb., stays calling upon the lard Dumlanryke. Has communed with Maxwell and told him, as instructed, that, Arren having written for longer day for the other prisoners, the pledges to remain, the suit for his son was stayed. Maxwell was very earnest for Wharton to write to Suffolk that his eldest son should not enter again, and that his second son should lie in pledge. Maxwell's meaning is to lie himself at Court and have his eldest son upon his offices in the country, and he will take no office in Scotland but at the King's command. He would have gone himself to Suffolk but Wharton dissuaded him.
In last wars with Scotland, when serving under the earl of Northumberland, Wharton practised with a Scottish woman named Kateryn Robynson to bring intelligence out of Scotland. Before the beginning of this war she again undertook to bring intelligence. On the 21st inst. she came, saying that the larde of Bukcleughe would write Wharton a secret letter if he would receive it, and would also deliver the young Queen of Scotland into his hands. Marvelled at such words from her, although the said laird had sent messages by Englishmen as though he would speak with Wharton; as the latter wrote on the 20th. Bade her say that he would receive any letter. On the 27th she came to Carlisle and delivered the enclosed letter, saying that her credence was that, if Wharton, through her, would appoint time and place, the Queen should be delivered. Wrote by her to Bukcleughe that he would meet him at his appointment and meanwhile all things might remain as they were. Thinks it should not lie in such men's power to deliver her; and considers the credence sent from earl Bothwell by John Spens to like effect. Sundry espials report "that she is in great peril either to be conveyed or destroyed amongst them." Begs credence for his cousin and deputy Lancelot Lowther, the bearer, in this and Maxwell's matter; and desires to know what to say if Bukcleughe appoint a meeting. Carlisle, last day of Feb.

We "desire you rycht effectuislye that ye will considder his caus" and restore his property.

225. The Fleet in the North Seas.
Instructions given by the King to Wm. Woodhous, gentleman, appointed admiral of his navy on the North Seas.
To protect his subjects from enemies, the King (besides sundry navies abroad) has appointed four good ships equipped for the war to keep the North Seas, viz. the Trinity, Anthony, John Evangelist and Mary Grace called Andreson's Bark, all of Newcastle, and Wm. Woodhous to have the rule of them. They shall keep the North Seas between Humber and Berwick, and not enter Tynmouth unless upon stress of wind or some "chace" (qr. chase or chance?). Woodhous, as admiral, shall sail in the Trinity [and receive commission and instructions from "the said Sir Francis Bryan and John Osburne"] (fn. 4) and Dunstone Nudigate shall be captain of the Anthony, Laur. Folbery of the John Evangelist and George Ryveley of the Mary Grace, under Woodhouse, "according to such commission as is is (sic) given unto him in that behalf." The lord Admiral and Mr. Stannop shall see them victualled from time to time. They shall take all Frenchmen and Scots as good prize, taking the men into their own ships "to serve in the same as drudges" (droges) and send the prizes, in Englishmen's charge, to the next port; advertising the lord Admiral, and charging the officers of the port to see the goods safely kept, and certify the King's Council, as Woodhous also shall do by letters. They shall not meddle with any Fleming, Spaniard or Portingal unless he have hurt any English subjects or is conveying men, munition or victual into Scotland; in which case he is to be apprehended and kept, "to the strength and commodity of his Majesty's navy," until further instructions. Likewise Danskers, or ships of Estland, unless equipped for war or offenders, are not to be meddled with; but ships of the King of Denmark himself are to be searched for letters and news. Woodhous shall see that there is no spoil of the goods of any ships he shall take, and in no wise "use those which be not Frenchmen or Scots, or have not notably offended in any extreme sort," but bestow them so that in all events he may be master of them.
