599. Maltravers to Henry VIII.
Heard for truth this morning that the French King prepares to march in person with a great army about 11 June, "and hath sworn an unadvised oath saying that he will have all Artoysse or else it shall cost him his life." 15,000 Swysses are come to serve him. They bruit at Arde that the French king has written to their lieutenant to make much of the Englishmen. The Constable of France rises again in favour. On Thursday the Burgundians and certain horsemen of Turwan met. The French took one Burgundian horseman, and the Burgundians took 22 Frenchmen and slew 4 or 5 of their horsemen. Calais, 26 May. Signed.

600. Wallop to the Council.
Wrote on the 24th of receipt of a letter from the Great Master, in answer to his, intimating the King's pleasure as contained in theirs of the 21st. Accordingly, met the Great Master yesterday at St. Mary Kerque adjoining Bredenarde, where 2,000 Almains lie and a reinforcement of Burgundian footmen and 200 horsemen is appointed, to guard that way to Flanders. The Great Master rejoiced at Wallop's commission and thanked the King for his gentle offer to assist the Emperor, saying that if the Frenchmen should enter upon those parts he would be glad to have the number now granted sent to where the Almains are, not requiring assistance except from the English pale to St. Omer's. He was advertised of the "conformation" of the treaty, before Wallop's coming, both by the Regent and Mons. de Chapuys, the ambassador. Wallop said he should have as many men as might safely be spared from the King's fortresses, viz. 2,000 footmen and 200 horsemen. He liked that well, and began to devise about some notable exploit, saying that if he had 3,000 foot and 600 horse, Englishmen, with two double cannons, 2 demicannons and 2 fawcons, he could burn the rest of Bullonoyes, towns, village, peels and strong churches, unto the sea side, and, if the time were well chosen, might peradventure take Mounstrell, whence at his last course most of the inhabitants fled away. But that enterprise must be shortly, for whenever war shall be published the French will lie there with their whole power. Has written before how commodious that town should be both for the King and the Emperor. For secrecy, the Great Master thinks that horses for drawing the ordnance might be sent over to serve in the mean time in the works here.
"The said Great Master goeth this (sic) towards Hennoway, being sent for by the duke of Arsekott, intending upon that border to make a course if the Frenchmen do not empeach them in these parties : and doubting the same the said Allemaignez shall remain where they are; which Frenchmen the Great Master is advertised they be encamped besides Mounstrell, who reckoneth they will not stir much abroad before Midsummer." He thinks the Emperor now in Italy, but his letters from the Regent that day did not mention it. The duke of Clevez army lies still before Hensbroughe and has lost two great pieces of ordnance. The Prince of Orange is encamped within a league or two of them. Callaiz, 26 May, at night.
P.S.—Trusts they received his letters of the 24th, enclosing letters of the Great Master to himself and to the ambassador there.

601. Edmond Harvel to Henry VIII.
Wrote on the 20th of the Turk's departure from Andrinopoli, 23 April, with a puissant host against Ferdinando; and the issuing from Constantinople of 120 galleys and 40 or 50 fustes. To-day, letters from Geane, of the 23rd, report the Emperor's arrival at Le Spongie in Provence, 150 miles from Geane. Guasto and his wife and the principal nobility of Milan are gone to Geane to honour the Emperor and his daughter, "who by the vulgar bruit is designed wife to Ferdinando's son with the duchy of Milan." The Bishop revoked Pole from Trent to Bononye, to send him to France and Scotland with 4,000 Almains and as many Frenchmen to stir the Scots against England. "It is incredible how the said Bishop and the Roman clergy is inflamed against the same, fearing beyond opinion th'amplification of your Majesty's empire which tendeth to their ruin." The practices between the Bishop and the French king are hotter than ever before, and doubtless they machinate against Henry. Letters from Vienna of the 17th speak of small provision against the Turks, and doubt the Turk's coming this year; but Ferdinando has sent his wife and children to Boheme. There is small accord in the Diet of Noremberg, even in this extreme peril. Venice, 26 May, 1543.

604. The Queen of Hungary to Chapuys.
By her letters of the 22nd and the papers therewith, satisfied the chief point of his letters of the 17th and 20th inst.; and she is accordingly despatching the king of arms, Toison d'Or, towards Calais to await him of England and (upon Chapuys's writing to him) to fulfil his charge. Was pleased to hear of the King's good will to the accomplishment of the treaty, who rightly considers that the sooner he declares himself the more perplexed the French will be. Although de Roeulx has, since Chapuys wrote, retired, so as not to weary his men now, when no great exploit is possible for want of forage, she hopes that the King will still order his captain of Guisnes to have intelligence with De Roeulx and devise with him for the damaging of the common enemy. Is writing comformably to De Roeulx; and, if the captain (who will obey the command to the letter) has only been written to to join with De Roeulx in the field, Chapuys shall help to get him ordered to assist De Roeulx in any case when required. Since the King is so willing to send men over sea, she will not press for the defensive assistance, under the treaty, until the French approach nearer, although she has news that the King of France assembles on this side Paris and will throw all his strength upon the countries of her government.
Chapuys did well to impress the King with the unreasonableness of the Duke of Cleves, who should incur the indignation of all Princes by so absolutely refusing what his Commissioners so solemnly promised : but, as she wrote before, the Duke has so well learnt the school of France that he uses more wilfulness than reason. It was also prudent to excuse the declaration which the King wished to make to the Duke's agent under condition of declaring himself enemy; which would not be to the reputation either of the Emperor or the King, as the Duke would almost certainly persist in his refusal and the French and Clevois would attribute the declaration to some request made from hence. Thinks it better that the King should declare himself the Duke's enemy according to the 6th article of the treaty, and dismiss his agent in such a manner that the cause of it may not be disguised, for the Clevois always persuade their friends that the King will not be their enemy. Chapuys shall use dexterity to get the King to declare against Cleves, whose favour in Germany is already much diminished by his refusal of the truce, which the Estates of the Empire made sure of on his side.
Wrote in her last that the King's ambassadors would know what the Emperor will do this season before concluding particulars of the enterprise, which they do not consider to be settled. Cannot answer this until news comes of the Emperor s arrival in Italy and subsequent decision, which she expects daily and will at once report to the King. As the season advances, and the Emperor and King could hardly be ready for any great exploit at the day named, Chapuys shall do well to persuade the King that, if unable to make enterprise against France, he may assist the Emperor to continue the war either with money or men.
Cleves continues to besiege Heynsberge, where he has lost many men; and she is sending the Prince of Orenges with 3,000 horse and a good number of foot to encamp between the enemies and Maistricht and harass their camp.
The English ambassadors have presented Chapuys's letters of the 12th inst. and required the exemption of English merchants from the impost of the centiesme. To induce them to give up their suit, she said that she would not dispute whether it was in accordance with the intercourse but hoped that the King would not prejudice the Emperor by stopping it (for if the English were exempt all other strangers must also be so) especially as the proceeds were to be used against the common enemy and she was content to give his subjects letters of non prejudice. The ambassadors answered that the tenor of the intercourse was clear, and the intercourse was confirmed by the treaty of closer amity and the King had absolutely declared that he would not consent. Replied only that she had no notice of this from Chapuys. Requires him again to pray the King, for her sake, to consent to it, at least for one year; and meanwhile she has decided to levy the impost, and therefore requires to know with diligence if it causes any irritation. If the King persists in stopping the impost he ought to stop all imposts made by himself and his predecessors since the year 1445, because the intercourse of the year 20, confirmed by the treaty of closer alliance, says that Flemish subjects should pay no other gabelles than those due by the intercourse of 1495, which says that the imposts paid are to be such as were taken before 1445, since which time the English have imposed several. Before insisting upon this, waits to see what the King will finally do about the centiesme.
While writing, has received letters from De Roeulx enclosing one to him from the Captain of Guisnes, to the effect that, after the 2,500 archers and 200 horse which the King is to send hither arrive, he is charged to assist De Roeulx against the French if they invade Flanders on the frontiers adjoining the English in case De Roeulx will complete the destruction of the castles and villages of Boulognois. The Captain's orders are therefore entirely conditional; and Chapuys must see if he can obtain others.

606. The Privy Council to Seymour and Wotton.
The King has received your sundry letters, accepts your proceedings, and has willed us to signify that, yesterday, at high mass, in presence of the Ambassador, Council, gentlemen of the Privy Chamber and a great number of other gentlemen and chaplains, he ratified and sware to the treaty with the Emperor; reading the oath himself, bareheaded. This day Garter, the principal herald, is despatched to Calais to attend the coming of the herald from the Regent and accompany him to the French Court. This you shall signify to the Regent and require her to take order (as the treaty covenants) for men to be sent to the sea within a month after the intimation of war.

608. Seymour and Wotton to Henry VIII.
This day the Queen sent for them, to participate news from her ambassador in England; which was that Henry purposed to ratify the league on Corpus Christi Day and would that the defiance to the enemy should go forth with speed (and therefore she sends a herald to Calais to-morrow, to await the coming of Henry's and carry out the instructions already sent to Henry), and that, although the defiance be not yet executed, Henry would let the captain of Guisnes with 2,500 archers and 300 (sic) horsemen join Mons. de Reux in following his enterprise in Boulognois. De Reux has retired, after doing much hurt, but his men shall be soon ready if necessary; and she thanks Henry for his forwardness. The Ambassador also signified that the French ambassadors (fn. 1) in Scotland had maigre chere of the Governor, who had all the realm at his command save one castle or port (fn. 2) which is to come in by a certain day. She said the French boasted that Henry was offering them friendship; which she thought was "but a French tale." She hears nothing of the Emperor's arrival in Italy.
The siege of Heynsborgh continues. De Corrieres, to-day, says that the Prince of Orange, with 24 ensigns of lantzknechts, besides horsemen, shall encamp over the Mase to levy it. The French king comes himself, with a great power, and they here would prevent his joining the Clevoys. Bruxelles, 28 May, 1543. Signed.

612. Chapuys to Charles V.
Received by way of Flanders the Emperor's letters of 12 April, and afterwards, by his man, the duplicate of them and the power mentioned therein, in virtue of which the ratification and oath were, the day before yesterday, made with the same solemnities; as appears by documents which he will forthwith send to the Queen Regent, as commanded, together with the treaty signed by the Emperor with the great seal which his man brought. As to the specification of claims (pretenses) and other quarrels, besides those mentioned in the treaty, the King admitted those contained in the Emperor's said letters and also those added since by Grandvelle, as appears by the copy (herewith) of the instructions of the king of arms. The King agrees that the Emperor's king of arms should rather protest to continue the war than to make a new defiance. Touching the obtaining of the King's express declaration of Holstein and Cleres for common enemies the Council have advised Chapuys to defer urging it until the defiance is made to France and things are hotter, when the King would do it much more willingly. Besides they affirmed that it was unnecessary, being comprised in the generality. The King seems to intend first to send privately to the said Dukes to warn them to desist from troubling the Emperor. With regard to the common invasion the Emperor will have already learnt the King's inclination, by what Chapuys has written to Grandvelle, and at present he can add nothing therein to his letters (copy herewith) to the Queen Regent. The Emperor will likewise have learnt the release of the Cardinal of Scotland and events there. Thanks for acceptance of his services in achieving the treaty. London, 29 May 1543.

613. Chapuys to the Queen Of Hungary.
Since his last, of the 20th inst., has received hers of the 22nd, with the instructions, which are approved by the King and Council. The only alterations made appear by the copy herewith and seem immaterial, although the English have omitted in the said copy a certain clause which they put in the article "Si le roy de France voulloit furnir aux choses dessusdits en dedans dix jours," viz., the addition "ou donner pleges suffisantes pour ce faire." The King was pleased with her concurrence in his opinion that the kings of arms ought to refer to one another. Thinks that Thoyson d'Or will be already at Calais. If he were late it would much displease the King, who has sent thither in haste Garter, his first king of arms.
Where she desires to know what passed between the King and him touching the enterprise for this year against France; has not gone beyond what Grandvelle wrote, and never said what the Ambassadors reported to her, although he has said (as of himself, like all the rest) that he believed that the Emperor would take counsel and advice of the King touching the place of entry. All that he has said has been as of himself and on the supposition that the Emperor should have the opportunity, and she knows the occasion, viz., a little want of willingness to listen to the enterprise this year, as he wrote on the 18th, although these ministers always give out that they are ready. When shown that they had not provided victuals, they have answered that they had already put 1,000 qr. of wheat in barrel and 4,000 to make beer, and as for flesh they expected to get some from the enemies, and that, touching carriage, ships for passage and assistance of victuals, the ambassadors with her were specially charged to learn what aid the King could have; but when Chapuys came to speak of the horse they were perplexed and could not answer, especially when he said that they could not get those of Flanders as the Emperor would need them. In the end they said that that did not matter and they would always be able to get some. Believes that the principal thing with which he cooled them is the lateness of the Emperor's passage.
Because Chapuys was unwell on the day of the Holy Sacrament, (fn. 7) the oath was put off till Sunday last, when all passed in the requisite fashion, as she will see by the documents (pieces), which he will send as soon as possible, some of which are still in the hands of the secretaries. After the oath Chapuys presented her letters and declared his credence; which the King took well, saying with a sigh that it was marvellous that nothing was yet heard of the Emperor's passage, and that the season was already so advanced that the proposed enterprise would be difficult, and that the other matter, of Montreul (of which Chapuys spoke), was more feasible and very important, and ought to be kept in view, and he for his part would not sleep. Afterwards he said that he was advertised that Vendosme was at Montreul with a good company of men of war, waiting for the rest; and that the king of France had sworn not to desist from war in Harthois till its entire conquest, an obstinacy which might prove his ruin, for it would be easy to defend that quarter if the Emperor's troops were not occupied elsewhere, with whom he may join as many of his as seems good. And here he prayed Chapuys to write again to suggest reinstating the truce with Cleves, as when Cleves, like Scotland was detached from France, the enemy would be stripped of every intelligence.
Has heard divers times from those of the Council that their affair with Scotland stands well. The four ambassadors are still here and well treated. The fifth, viz., George Douglaz, brother of the earl, is returned in haste to Scotland and will be here shortly with some good resolution. Duke Philip, under colour of offering himself and men of war to the King's service in case of necessity, came to resume the old question of the marriage with the Princess, giving out among other things that he had promise of the Lutheran League that in case of the death of the Elector Palatine he would be preferred to his uncle Duke Frederic and Otto Henry his elder brother. But all availed him little, and he has gone with a present worth 2,000 cr. Has failed to persuade the Council to take the imposts in good part, and they have finally prayed him earnestly to supplicate her to accept the present which their merchants wish to make her instead. By what he writes and what the ambassadors tell her she will recognise whether the despatches to them are communicated to him, and can act accordingly. London, 29 May 1543.

614. Sadler to [Parr.]
My lord of Suffolk, by his last letters, as your Lordship knows, required me to advertise you what day the proclamations were made in Scotland for prorogation of the truce to 1 July, that you might cause the semblable to be done within your office. This morning, the Governor says that yesterday he sent command to Maxwell to make the proclamations within his office on the West Marches, and that this morning like command is sent to all the wardens of the East and Middle marches; so that this day and to-morrow the proclamations shall be made all along the Borders. Edinburgh, 29 May.
P.S.—"Yesternight arrived here Sir George Douglas, and, a little before him, came to this-town the Governor, out of the West parts."

615. Bonner to Henry VIII.
On Friday the 25th, the Emperor came hither from Savone with all his galleys of Spain, Geane, Naples, Sicily and Monaco; and all his ships, for conducting of which he stayed at Marseilles, the Isles of Eres, and divers places in the Ryver of Geane. Describes manœuvres at Marseilles, where two French galleys shot at the Emperor's galley, but were driven off by Ant. Dorea. The Emperor appeared right welcome here and was salnted with gun shot. The same morning the Nuncio departed hence to the Bishop of Rome at Bononye, on whose return it will be known whether there shall be a meeting; which in any case would be merely "for a visage that th' Emperor doth not contemn." The duke of Castro, the Bishop's son, was here to receive the Emperor, and departed on the 29th with the duke of Cameryne, either to arrange for the meeting to be at Plaisance or Mantua, or else to reconcile the duchess of Cameryne with the Duke. Guasto, with 200 horse and his guard came hither to meet the Emperor, as did the duke of Florence. Mons. de Boysie, Master of the Horses, lately returned hither; and from Sicily returned the Viceroy, to accompany the Emperor to Flanders, while Aguilar remains viceroy of Sicily. Some marvel that the Emperor comes so feeble, considering the doing of the Frenchmen and the Turk's coming to Hungary, but it is thought he intends to do his feats in Flanders.
Before leaving Spain, besides letters by Mr. Chamberlayne and Atkynson, wrote from Barcelone 30 April, and from Rosas 14 May, by way of Bilbao and St. Sebastian's. Sends copies of these letters herewith. From hence, or from Pavia, will write other occurrents. Geanes, 29 May. Signed.

619. Wallop to the Council.
This morning at 5 o'clock, received their letters of the 28th, and will speak again with De Rieulx who is now on the borders of Hennowey with Mons. Darscott besieging a castle called Guy in Terras, probably the new castle which the French began to build two years past. Will write him the King's pleasure, so that he may either come himself or send his opinion. As to the taking of Mounstrell with the aid of 3,000 footmen and 600 horse, De Rieulx did not speak of the keeping of it, "because it was doubtful whether it should be taken or not, as shall appear unto your Lordships by a memory of his own hand which I required of him." He said, if the King should send over his great power, he was sure to take it or force the French to battle and then take it; victuals might always be conveyed thither by the river that comes from St. Omez, on which stand many peels and strong castles of the Emperor's; he had to go towards Hennowey, but would be glad, when the King's power came, to resort to Calais and consult for the taking and keeping of Mounstrell and other things to be done this year. Asked him, for the course to be made with the 3,000 foot and 600 horse, what number he would bring; and he said the number he had last in Boullonoyez, viz. 6,000 foot, 1,400 horse, 2 cannons and 4 fawconetts. Has no other news than he wrote yesterday to Mr. Wriothesley, herewith enclosed. Guisnes, 31 May. Signed.

ii. Memorandum (enclosed in the preceding) to the effect that if the King furnishes a succour of 2,000 foot and 200 horse it should, upon the writer's notice to the captain of Guisnes, be sent straight to this place of Munequebrughe; but if the King will make a course with 3,000 English and 600 horse Montreul might be taken by surprise or the Boulenois wasted; and if the King will make a great army Montreul could be taken or the enemy forced to give battle. For the aforesaid course 2 cannons, 2 demicannons and 2 sight pieces are necessary and should have horses belonging to them.

After wishing victory and happiness to Henry VIII., King of England and France, "duci Herlandiæ (Nerlandæ in the address) et domino in Wals," the writer reminds the Ambassador of his offer to levy 12,000 footmen upon conditions which the King prescribed to him by letter brought by bearer; which letter he now sends (hearing that the Ambassador is in the Emperor's Court), and intimates that he is ready to provide the men (except against the Emperor or Electors). Bearer is a most intimate friend, who can treat the most secret matters and make any contract, but, if required, the writer himself will come to the Ambassador, or to the King. "Pridie K. Junias."

To go, provided with his commission as king of arms, to Calais, and there await the coming of the king of arms of England. When ready to proceed, they shall send a trumpet or other messenger to the next good town of France for the French king's safe conduct. That obtained, they shall go to the French Court and to the King's presence, of whom De Phalaix, without salutation or recommendation, shall require liberty to express his charge; and, on receiving that assurance, shall say as follows : —That the Emperor (considering the present troubles of Christendom, chiefly due to the king of France, by reason of this war, contrary to his treaties and promises, and without preliminary defiance, recommenced, and that the Turk daily advances in invading the lands of the Christians), with the advice of the King of England, his ally, has sent him (De Phalaix) to require Francis, in the first place, to consider that the Turk for years past has striven to subdue the countries of the Christians, and therefore the Emperor requires him as a king bearing the title of "tres Chrestien" to leave all intelligence with the Turk and withdraw his ambassadors and agents, and also to indemnify the King of the Romans and states of the Empire for the damage they have received from the Turk at his solicitation, restore Maran to the King of the Romans, pay the King of France and England all that is owing by virtue of past treaties (as that King's king of arms will declare), (fn. 8) cease making war on the Emperor, and pay all expenses caused thereby, restore all lands which he and his predecessors have usurped from the Empire, and reinstate the duke of Savoy. (fn. 9) Doing this, the Emperor, with the consent of the King of France and England, will be content to make peace with him. Then, after the king of arms of England has likewise declared his charge, (fn. 9) if the French king demands the proposition in writing, De Phalaix shall give it, desiring answer within ten days. If asked whether he has charge to accord conditions of peace, De Phalaix shall say that, if the above points are satisfied within ten days, the Emperor will depute commissioners, with those of England, to accord the peace. If the French king refuse the request, or make excuses (as is probable), or defer answer beyond the ten days, or will not give any answer, De Phalaix shall say that if he will not agree to such reasonable requests, the Emperor summons him to accomplish them all, and also to restore to the Emperor and his successors the duchy of Burgundy, counties of Charloys, Auxerrois and Masconnois, vicomté of Auxone, "seigneuries de Chastel Synon, Bar sur Seine et resort de St. Laurens, Amyens, Abbeville, Corbye, Peronne, et St. Quentin" (fn. 10) with recompense of fruits levied during their occupation, also to restore to the King of France and England all detained from him (as his king of arms will declare); likewise to restore to the Emperor the towns, &c. of Hesdin, Astenay, Ivoix and Dampvilliers and to the Empire, the countries of Provence, Daulphiné and others adjacent; moreover to fulfil the treaties of Madrid and Cambray; and also to restore to the abp. of Valence the 25,000 cr. which he was constrained to pay, together with damages for his long and unjust captivity. Otherwise the Emperor will, with the aid of God and assistance of the King of France and England, pursue the war which the French king has so unreasonably commenced, and will not listen to truce or amity without the knowledge and consent of the King of France and England.
De Phalaix shall then wait while the king of arms of England declares his charge; and shall note all that is said to him, so as to be able to write it at his return. In going and returning he shall avoid speaking of the war or of the Emperor and King.

In going and returning, &c. (as in § 2), so as to give no occasion of jealousy, he shall speak with no one except in presence of the English herald. [In margin : That is, if he shall speak to the Queen of France, and it seems not.] The Council has debated whether the Emperor's king of arms could not speak for both princes, especially if the English should so require, and have thought best that each should speak for his own prince, as well to avoid debate if the King of England wished to use words which could not be entirely avouched, such as supreme head of the English Church, as also to demonstrate that each prince takes the affair to heart.
