Original Letters, 240 (Parker Soc.)
219. Richard H[Illes] to Henry Bullinger.
Sends him 10 Italian crowns for the poor exiles, rich, however, in Christ. His wife expects her confinement in three weeks. At last fair gave Henry Falckner 4fl. for Bullinger's books. Pray tell him that though he solemnly promised that I should be paid at this Frankfort fair all the money he owed me (about 124 crowns) in golden ducats, I have not received above 4 from Master Christopher, but in other money as usual. Details of the transactions. No news, but that our King has within these 2 months (as I wrote to John Burcher) burnt 3 godly men (fn. 1) in one day. For in July he married the widow of a nobleman named Latimer; and he is always wont to celebrate his nuptials by some wickedness of this kind. Strasburg, 26 Sept. 1543.
P.S.—Desires him to give, with these letters addressed to Germans, 10 other French crowns and his other letter to John Burcher.

220. Suffolk, Tunstall and Browne to the Council.
Forward three letters received from the lord Warden, viz., one to him from Wharton, about his conference with lord Maxwell and his son, who seem to stand fast to the King, one from young Mr. Maxwell to the lord Privy Seal and one from Wharton to me, Sir Anthony Broune. Darneton, 27 Sept. Signed.
P.S.—Enclose copy of their letter to Mr. Sadleyr concerning their consultation upon the device sent to Suffolk for the sending of a secret message to the Governor; and the copy of their letter to the Council explaining why they wrote to Sadleyr. Upon the arrival of the above mentioned letters, have stayed sending the letters to Sadleyr, for if the King give ear to these new overtures "then should this nothing agree withal."

221. Suffolk, Parr, Tunstall and Browne to the Council.
On the 24th inst. Sir Ant. Browne arrived here and showed my lord Lieutenant and my lord of Duresme his instructions. To know within what time 8,000 horsemen and 2,000 light footmen might be brought to the Borders; have perused the muster books of the shires in Suffolk's commission and (appointing to make 2,600 spearmen, which is the most that can be spared leaving the Borders furnished, 2,000 archers on horseback and 2,000 on foot, and 3,400 bill men on horseback) find that, the foremost of them gathering together and making their coats, to come to the Borders by such journeys as to save their horses will take them 15 days. All diligence shall be made in preparing things meet for such a number. Darnton, 27 Sept. Signed.

222. Sadler to the Council.
Yesternight received theirs of 22 Sept., showing that the King "minding suddenly to correct the folly and untruth of these Scots," would have him convey himself to Temtallon, or some place of strength belonging to the King's friends, from whence to send such advertisements as he can get. Explains that it is impossible to convey himself and his folk out of this town, for the inhabitants will not suffer it until they have their ships; and nightly watch is kept about his house, nominally for his surety, but really to prevent his stealing away. If revoked in case of war, the nobility would doubtless see him safely conveyed out. At Temptallon, which is almost 30 miles within Scotland, he could do no service; for he could neither get news nor send messengers, if the King's army were in Scotland. Begs to know by next post what to do. Edinburgh, 27 Sept. Signed.

223. Sadler to Suffolk and Tunstall.
Has received their two letters of 22 and 23 Sept. in cipher brought by Scottish men. Things here remain as described in his last letters to the King, viz., that, if the King will accept four or five of the prisoners as hostages, restore the ships and goods and redress attemptates on the Borders, all the nobility will concur to the accomplishment of the treaties. Angus and his party will not convene with these lords here, but intend to be here on this day sevennight with such force as to compel these lords to perform the treaties. Wrote that he feared the King's letter to Angus was intercepted; but he is now advertised by Sir George Douglas that it was delivered to him, untouched, at Coldingham, and by him conveyed to Angus at Douglas. Sir George means to carry the answer himself to Berwick, and to go to their lordships, but is somewhat accrased. The Cardinal has made sundry means to speak with Sadler, and did so yesterday at the Black Friars. He made a long discourse to the effect that he had been misreported to the King, whose favour he desired more than that of any prince in the world, and whose pleasure no man in Scotland was more ready to set forth than he; and he would do his best to bring the whole nobility and clergy to concur to the performance of the treaties. His words showed him most desirous of the King's favour, but Sadler cannot tell how his deeds will declare him. Edinburgh, 27 Sept. Signed.
P.S.—Has received theirs of 24 Sept., with letters in cipher from the Council appointing to him "a very strange commission." It will be very hard and dangerous to him and all with him to remain here amongst their enemies in time of open war. Has written again to the Council and begs that his letters may be forwarded with diligence.

224. Bonner to Henry VIII.
On the 25th the Emperor left Diest, 4 miles hence (where the Diet of these parts had made him an aid of 400,000 guldens for these wars), coming in his litter, to a monastery 2 miles hence, where he lodged the night; and next day arrived here with the Regent. Grandevele here said the Emperor had eftsoons sent Mons. de Chantynew, his son, to Henry; and he (Granvelle), as he promised at Maguntia, had written all things to their Ambassador to be declared to Henry, with the submission of the duke of Cleves and order taken therein. He said their Ambassador in England wrote that he and the Council there marvelled they had no oftener advice from hence. Bonner answered that he was no Frenchman, but wrote only what he knew. Granvelle said that lately, because things were not concluded, they knew, not what they might truly write. Answered that, being joined to the Emperor as he was, it was expedient that the King should be kept informed of all their doings; and that, but for Granvelle's sending him to Colen (which in this war time seemed to him a prison), he would have seen to it. Granvelle assured him that they did not fail to advertise the Ambassador "of all things necessary;" and, herewith, declared the conditions of the contract between the Emperor and duke of Cleves, promising a copy (afterwards sent, and which Bonner now sends to be conferred with that which Granvelle says he sent by his son). Granvelle also said that the Emperor had been troubled with gout, but was better and, on the 28th inst., would depart hence 3 miles (to Waver, as Bonner has since learnt) and thence goes to Nyvell, 7 miles hence, where the Regent leaves him and he goes to the camp; "and our men (quoth Mons. Granvell) shall now another while grassari in Gallos, the Emperor is so utterly bent and moved."
The Emperor's jewels were brought from Colen when Bonner departed; and, at the same time, 30 great pieces of ordnance and much gun powder went thence to Mastricke and the camp. Thirty more great pieces and much powder remain to come by water to Flanders. Since leaving Colen, has sent divers letters, among them one of the 7th (copy enclosed), but is uncertain whether they reached the King, considering the dangerous passage, as well during the war as afterwards when the duke of Cleves' retinue, being put out of wages, "became their own men and robbed and spoiled as many as they were able to overcome." Departs hence to-morrow. Lovaine, 28 Sept., at night.

225. Chapuys to the Queen of Hungary.
As Chantonnay will relate occurrents, he will only beg her to see to the release of the Sieur Bernard de Sainct Boniface, detained at Rippemonde, in whose favour certain of the Council has spoken. London, 29 Sept. 1543.

230. Wotton to Henry VIII.
The Emperor, somewhat amended, came to Lovain on Wednesday (fn. 4) and on Tuesday (fn. 5) next will be at Quesnoy le Conte, where he will leave the Lady Regent and go through with his own army, leaving Arschot's company before Landrissy. President Schore says that the Emperor intends to leave all his ambassadors at Mons in Hainault, but Wotton may follow the Queen to Quesnoy; that the French, having taken the town and castle of Luxemburgh, seem perplexed and afraid to assault Tyonville; also that the Emperor leads 30,000 footmen and 7,000 or 8,000 horsemen into France; which seems great, considering how many are left at Landrissy and on the frontiers at Luxemburgh, Fryseland and Artois and with the Prince of Orenge in Gelderland. The weather improves. The Emperor's army is setting forward, and he is well amended and trusts to ride with them into France. Bruxelles, 29 Sept. 1543.

234. Henry VIII. to Suffolk and Others.
Has seen their letters to the Council describing such horsemen as (leaving the Borders defensible) may be levied for the exploit into Scotland. The spearmen are far under the number necessary. Considering that Maxwell and his son are bound to the King's service, and have made suit to the deputy warden of the West Marches for the preservation of those under their rule, no incourse is to be feared on that Border; and therefore more spearmen may be taken out of the West Borders and the other two Borders, so as to make up 4,000 spearmen, and bowmen and billmen of the inland men left on the Borders for the short time of the enterprise. And where they write that it will take the men 15 days to make their coats and repair to the Borders, he doubts not that they will use all diligence, and, as for coats, the enterprise will not take above 12 or 14 days and they look for none; so that, to save expense, they may wear only red crosses, to which they will easily be persuaded if Borderers are told that nothing else is meant but a raid into Scotland, and inland men that they are levied for defence of the Borders, which the Scots are ready to enter and burn. Requires them to put all things ready and notify what forwardness they are in. Has here 10 or 12 ships which cannot be better employed, and are able to land 1,400 or 1,500 men in the Frythe nigh Edinburgh, and may take with them six great pieces of artillery which might be useful. Upon knowledge of their towardness, will send the orders for their marching forwards, and despatch the said navy to reach Edinburgh at the same time as they. They must secretly lade some victual, to serve them at Edinburgh, in ships at Newcastle and Berwick to be conducted by the said navy. Requires quick answer, as by tract of time his purpose may be hindered.

235. Henry VIII. to Sadler.
Perceives, by his letters of the 24th inst., the overture made at his last access to the Queen and "that Council," which appears so arrogant (that they would know the King's mind and then make answer as should seem expedient) that he thinks it necessary to make them answer by a herald. As Angus and others intend shortly to be at Edinburgh, and to make an overture for observance of this treaty, which by the "negligence, frailty and mutability" of the Governor is annihilate, and the King at liberty to take it or leave it, Sadler is to advise them not to enter too far with the King's adversaries, nor to think that the King will eftsoons accept such conditions as in last treaty he only agreed to upon their promises, which hitherto have come to small effect, and henceforth to enterprise nothing in the King's affairs without his instructions. Considering the unseemly overture made by the Cardinal and his sort, and that the King is at open war with Scotland, for lack of performance of the treaty, he will not accept it again as it was passed. When he concluded that treaty it was pretended by "you (fn. 10) whom we most trusted" that the earl of Arreyn, then named Governor, was the King's friend; but now he has revolted and put himself at the direction of the King's enemies, who have "violated the faith of their Governor, the majesty of their Parliament, the credence of their ambassadors," with all other testimony to the ratification of the said treaty; and you that were doers of it should seek ways to revenge it, and not "go about to redubb the same." Glynkerne, Douglas and other friends told the King that, if he would be content with these easy conditions, it would work such a love in all towards him that he should order all things, both for their Council and the safekeeping of the Queen and all his other purposes. Now he sees the Queen at the order of the Cardinal, one man his enemy directing all things, and all their conjectures deceived. Wherefore, let them now show themselves true men to their promise and well willers to their own country; for the King seeks to remove thence such as have been the breakers of this amity, or have shown themselves unmeet for authority, the chief whereof are the Cardinal and the Governor; whose remaining in authority by the consent of Angus and the King's friends will make the King esteem them less his friends than he has done. Unless these two are delivered into the King's hands, or at least deprived of all honour and authority, and, by authority of Parliament, a Council established (which should be twelve persons of the most discreet personages of the realm named in a schedule herewith) and eight other personages (also named in the schedule) appointed to have the custody of the Queen, four of them to be always in attendance (for those who were put in trust by Parliament have "brought her into the only order of her mother and the Cardinal"), the King can hardly be persuaded to any pact with Scotland. If they seem to doubt the peril of doing this, Sadler shall ask why they came to Edinburgh. Either they came to stand against the Cardinal, and thought themselves strong enough, or else they came to agree with the rest, and so break their promise to the King by agreeing first and asking advice afterwards. If they be strong enough, let them step to it and Henry will aid them at need. If they meant to join the rest; let them know that Henry will not accept the treaties as now passed, and therefore they may avoid all suit "for any degrees of the same," unless they first declare themselves for him. Praying them to give a resolute answer, for he is loth to be hobbied at as he has been with them. Sees no cause why, being at open hostility, he should redress the attemptates on the Borders. As to the ships, Sadler may tell the provost and townsmen of Edinburgh that, they having written the King "such an honest and humble letter," if things grow not to extremity, he may, rather at their suit than the Cardinal's, who was the cause of their taking, restore them.
After writing the above, has received letters from Angus, Glencarn, Casselles, Maxwell, Gray, Somervyle and Sir George Douglas answering his of 9 Sept. Sadler, in declaring to them the King's pleasure as above specified, shall thank them that they have travailed to make their party strong enough to resist the King's enemies; which serves well for the accomplishment of the things required by this letter.
(fn. 11) The King, "minding to proceed princely with the Scots," will send a herald to declare to the lords and commons assembled at Edinburgh how the Scots have swerved from their pacts, declaring their misdemeanours and the King's request that they will deliver the hostages, "or else to signify to them their destruction with fire and sword;" giving four days' respite for their answer, and warning all the King's prisoners to render themselves within ten days.
The King has ordered his navy to repair to Holy Island; and, in case the herald have no good answer, besides the invasion to be made by you, as devised, the navy shall enter the Frythe, burn the ships at the Lythe and land 500 men to annoy Edinburgh. The King awaits your advice touching the herald and the ships.

The King, having, by the death of your late Sovereign, and victory over such as invaded England, a great opportunity to prosecute the war to the extermination of all opponents, was content, in respect of his pronept and the humble suit made with a visage of submission ready to do all things tending to the conservation of his pronepte, to lay aside arms and enter treaty; concluding to place his pronepte in marriage with Prince Edward, his eldest son and heir apparent, and meanwhile to live in peace with you. To that covenant you have, by authority of the Three Estates of Scotland, consented, and have (by the Governor) sworn, and the King has the letters of ratification to show; which also, to show yourselves true men ["that should more consider the wealth of your Mistress than your own affection"] (fn. 13) you should have observed.
Now, when you have failed to perform your bond, after insurrections against your own government, "ye call the public authority private doings;" thereby denying the preeminence of your chosen Governor, the testimony of your great seal, the credit of your ambassadors, the faith of your notaries and the consent of your Parliament, and remaining as men with whom no covenant can be made. You forget that you covenanted with a Prince who will not suffer your disloyalty unpunished; and "for the wealth of your mistress and the poor commons," to whose detriment your folly shall chiefly redound, whereas by the peace and marriage the realm might have been preserved to your mistress and the commons lived in quietness. [Ye have set more by a little gain (or promise of gain) out of France than your honor, cared more for the maintenance of the Cardinal's appetites and the glory of the spirituality than your loyalty. For revenge whereof, fear the hand of God, fear the power of a Prince able to daunt you, fear, ye rulers, your own people, who, perceiving your abuses to their confusion, will not continue in the folly with you, fear such as are honest among you; for such conspiracy cannot continue, "the Devil can never be author of unity, but discord."] (fn. 14) After breaking the treaties you complain of raids and taking of ships, pretending to the people to lament their losses, of which you were the procurers. After discrediting your public authority, by saying that the treaties were passed by private persons, "ye have moved the King's majesty's ambassador here resident to write to his Highness to know his Majesty's pleasure concerning the peace and treaties, and, that known, ye would devise further what to do,"—ye require restitution of ships, redress of attemptates of the Borders. To this the King has thought good to make his answer by me and not by his ambassador, as follows :—
That he will not bear your arrogance in searching his mind, whereby to cloak your faults to the people. You pretend to wish peace who are the breakers of it. The King's inclination to the conservation of this realm was shown by the treaties. His clemency is manifest. Wherefore consider into what case you have brought Scotland. By you the Borderers have taken hurt. The ships of Edinburgh are stayed for your offence; which may, if matters grow not to extremity, be attained from him directly, but not through you. "And to you, that pretend public authority and yet, upon change of personages, call the same private, I shall close up the answer in this wise, Unite yourself to make suit for grace and favour or to defend yourself as the case shall require." For your defence, follow your own devices, but to sue for favour, let all your subscriptions jointly appear in your writings for it. For declaration of yourselves the King gives you respite of [six] (fn. 15) days.

Earlier draft of the preceding, identical with it for the most part in the first paragraph, and the first part of the second, down to the end of the cancelled passage stating that the Devil can "never be author of unity but discord"; except that whereas in § 1 the statements are put absolutely, as, "You forget," "Ye have set more by a little gain," &c., they are here put conditionally as "Ye should remember," "If ye set more by a little gain," &c. But the sentence "Now, when you have failed to perform your bond," &c., and the continuation to the end after the word "discord" (passages which have evidently been drawn upon receipt of Sadler's letter of 24 Sept.) are not in this, and the conclusion is as follows :—
Wherefore the King admonishes you to avoid the danger of your misdemeanour, and wills me thus to close up my message to you :—If you do, like noble men, observe your covenants, laying in hostages, you shall be mercifully received. If you persevere in your conjuration already commenced to the contrary, the quarrel shall be maintained against you with force, by God's help, to your confusion. If, in the persecution of the authors of the mischief, the innocent suffer, the King will be sorry. If such as mislike the conspiracy declare their dissevering from the rest, the King will spare them and help them.
To this messuage I ask answer within four days. Silence will be construed for the worst possible answer.

236. Suffolk, Parr, Tunstall and Browne to the Council.
On the 27th inst. the lord Warden and Wharton arrived with the most expert men of the Borders, for whom Suffolk had sent, as he wrote. Browne declared to them how, upon their writings lately sent to the King, advising a main army rather than the laying of garrisons, he was come to set it forwards. Describe how they, after long debate, explained that their former advice was on the supposition that carriage, victual and weather would serve, but now there had been such sudden floods, which had carried away their corn, and the weather was so sharp that they had changed their minds, for reasons given in a book herewith. Browne then suggested an army of 10,000 of whom 8,000 should be horsemen; but, after long debate, they opposed it, upon many of the reasons given by them against the main army, and asked leave to go together and devise services which would do no less hurt than either of these armies and not put the King's people in jeopardy of weather or the King to such charges. Whereupon, next day, they brought the exploits in two several books, signed by them, sent herewith; and the writers explain that they have come to be of the same opinion. To accomplish these enterprises they need 200 more in garrison, to make up 1,000, trusting that the enemy will be so weakened by them that, afterwards, 600 will suffice, unless the Scots lay strong garrisons, which, after these exploits, they will lack victual for. They also desire the aid of those alliable to the Borders, i.e., Westmoreland, Cumberland, Northumberland and the bishopric of Durham, for which the lord Warden has taken order.
Wharton has reminded them for the repair of the King's new works, which are in such decay "by raining into them" that they are like to be utterly lost; in which matter he said he wrote to the Council but had no answer. Darnton, 30 Sept. Signed.

That it is not to be done for these reasons (detailed), viz. (1) that the weather has lately been so "contagious" that the ways are impassable, (2) insufficient victual, (3) danger of evil weather coming, and (4) necessity of wasting the lands of both enemies and friends, and so making all enemies.
It has been said that 8,000 horsemen and 2,000 footmen might do great damage, but such an invasion is not convenient for these reasons detailed, viz. (1) great loss of horses by exposure, (2) impossibility of taking fortresses, such as Jedworthe, Hundelee, Farnyhyrste, Abone Jedworthe, Hunthill and other towers in both the Tevidallis, without great ordnance and longer abode than six days, (3) probability of bad weather, (4) difficulty of providing victuals and (5) that the Scots would get notice of their assembly and prepare to give them battle or else set upon them in their home coming.
Albeit the invasion of an army would relieve us Borderers, and "in our former opinions" (fn. 17) we considered that, with victual, carriage and seasonable weather it would do most hurt, we think it should not be; and we beg you my lord Lieutenant, and you my lords of the King's Council, to judge that we will do our best service, and we trust with small numbers of light horsemen to do more hurt than either the main army or the 10,000 men; and we have devised exploits as in several articles hereto annexed.

On Friday last (fn. 18) the Dowager, Cardinal, Huntley, Argile and Bothwell departed over the Frythe towards St. Andrews; and yesterday Huntly and Argile went homewards, leaving the Dowager, Cardinal and Bothwell at St. Andrews. Murrey abides here still. The Governor, being accrased (or feigning it), promised to come afterwards to St. Andrews; and, yesterday, went to Dalkeith to speak with Sir George Douglas, who has this day sent Sadler word that the Governor would, to keep his promise, pass to St. Andrews, but return on Wednesday or Thursday, bringing with him, if possible, the Cardinal and his complices to lay the hostages and perform the treaties, and, if not, coming himself to join Angus. This was the Governor's promise, but Sir George doubted whether it would be performed. This night the Governor is in Lythcoo intending to be to-morrow with the Cardinal : which Cardinal, at departing, sent Rotesey herald to Sadler to offer his services and say he would be here again in 4 or 5 days, but some think that, once in his castle of St. Andrews, "he will not come here a good while." On Thursday, Angus and his company will be here; and Lenoux with them, who is now at Angus's devotion, so that it is not likely that the Governor will be here. Asks for news. Edinburgh, 30 Sept.

242. The French Movements.
[Intelligence from a spy.]
He left Sentquintin yesterday, where are 400 men of arms, Vandosme with his own band and those of the Scots and the Constable, and Du Bies with his band; also 3,000 Boulognoys footmen under Mons. de Saintine, Mons. de Varennes and others. The Swiss arrived at Cressy on Sunday night, and number 12,000. The King is at Foullenbray near Coussy since Saturday and Sunday. They of Sent Quentyn expected to bring some baggage to Guyse, but could not. They did not expect the enemy to come that way (quon deult la venir) but feared rather for Le Chastellet or Perronne. Mons. de Dampierre is lieutenant there with 50 men of arms, and another esteemed captain is there with 50 men of arms; there are also footmen, and 300 harqueboussiers arrived on Saturday. The army is still behind the King and will not be all assembled for eight or ten days. The King himself viewed the fortification of Luxembourg; and afterwards made 10 leagues a day, leaving in that country 1,200 horse besides garrisons. The bruit is that the King will fight. Heard Mons. Destrees yesterday morning at St. Quentin speak of making an "emprinse sur les vivandi du Castel de la Chapelle." At the Chastellet is Captain Bernart and Mons. de Dyseux, lieutenant of Mons. Destrees.
