He is answered that, if the lords and gentlemen he named will enterprise the feat against the Cardinal and thereupon be compelled to flee into this realm, they shall be relieved as shall appertain; and, as to their second desire, for entertainment of men to burn the kirkmen's lands, that the time is too short to commune further of it, but, if they will lay hostages to Hertford to do as they offer he will deliver them 1,000l. for their furniture.

The King perceives, by his letters of the 22nd, the arrival at Carlisle of the earl of Glencarne and the bishop of Catnez, with the fault of the petit ministers concerning the victuals; and, by his of the 23rd, Glencarne's discourse with Wharton and Robert Maxwell, Hertford's determination with the Wardens to come home by land, and his lack of money. Albeit the King despatched 6,000l. three days past by Geffrey, of the Privy Seal, 4,000l. more is to be sent to-morrow. The King thanks him for his forwardness both to go by sea and return by land. As to instructions for Wharton and Bowes to proceed with Glencarn, the Council are commanded to consider the former instructions and advertise them further. It was once determined that, as the East and Middle Marches burnt Haddington, the West Marches should burn Jed worth. Now that 3,500 horsemen are appointed to go from Haddington to meet Hertford at Edinburgh, is Wharton to enter to Jedworth? Remind him of the necessity of having victuals on the Borders for the army at their coming home. If in his homeward way he sees that Tentallon or any other place may be kept and revictualled he shall man and furnish it, and the rather if it lie near the Borders so as to be victualled from Berwick. All victual that he does not need should be sent home by sea for the relief of the army and victualling of such places. Two or three small barks or boats must be kept ready to convey letters to and from him in Scotland. Greenwich, 26 April 1544. Signed by Suffolk, Russell, Winchester, Westminster, Cheyne, Gage, Paget, and Petre.

Enclose letters received by Hertford to-day from the Master of Morton and David Douglas, and from lord Evre and Sir Ralph Evre. Where the former write that Temptallon and all their friends shall be at the King's command, but excuse delivery of it until the army arrive; Hertford intends, if they then refuse, to try and get it, as a good entry into Scotland. To-day arrived the Council's letters with the proclamation to be made in Scotland. All the army is on shipboard and only waits for the wind, which is very contrarious. Lack three of the best ships, the Paunsey, Gret Galey and Swallowe, which, being left without the haven, according to the King's command, are driven away by the North wind, which caused a great storm here (into Humber, as is supposed), but will be able to rejoin the army by the time they are needed. Where the King appointed my lord of Durham to lie at Alnwick or elsewhere, to receive and forward letters; seeing that at Alnwick or Berwick he should be out of the way of news from the West Marches, he is to tarry at Newcastle (where the posts from both East and West meet) together with the President of the Council in the North.

26 April. 409. Layton to Henry VIII.
R. O. This 26 April, the Regent sent to his lodging the President of the Council to declare that a man of war of France dwelling nigh Saint Umbers, "a friendly traitor of France for th'Empereur," has accused a gentleman (fn. n3) of this country of disclosing to the French king what he could learn in Bruxelles, to which he weekly resorted. By means of the boy who carried his letters, this traitor has been taken in a "blinde in" in Bruxeles, and confesses that he has an Italian companion called Octavian, who lies at Andwarpe, as a merchant, and is now gone to Cales with two jennets to sell in order to learn news out of England of preparations towards France. If Octavian meet with any Englishman going towards Cales or England that will give him passport for his jennets (none have passed since Christmas without the Regent's passport, unless by stealth) he will perchance come into England. "He is a tall man with a little black beard; a coat of frisado, a black cloak of the same, both bound about with velvet." The Queen has written to the Deputy of Cales or his deputy about him; and has laid for him at Andwarpe, Graveling and all the frontiers, fearing lest he hear some inkling of the taking of his companion.
Are now busy taking order for Henry's lymoners and wagons; and for his 200 hoys, and for victualling his army. It is here supposed that there will be plenty of victuals for horse and man. The Regent has appointed two commissaries, and desires Henry to appoint other two who can speak French and Flemish. It is thought that the staple of victuals must be at Graveling and St. Umbers; and it will be begun as soon as Henry's commissioners come. Those appointed by the Queen had all the charge last year when Henry's army and the Emperor's were on the frontiers; and, here enclosed, they send a schedule of their minds. Bruxelles, 26 April.

26 April. 410. Chamberlain to Paget.
R. O. The arrival and departure of this bearer was so sudden that Chamberlain must beg Paget to certify the King, until he can do so more largely, that he has concluded with Mons. de Bueren for 2,000 footmen and 500 horsemen to be levied at his Highness's sould. Paid the conduct money for the footmen; but for the horsemen and their carts about 400l. is required, which should be sent to Andwarpe with all diligence, for, as Bueren says. "the time draweth fast on." Goes to Andwarpe to-morrow to borrow the 400l. among our merchants until it may be sent, and will then advertise his proceedings more at large. Bruxelles, 26 April 1544.

[Cal. of Cecil
Pt. i.,152.]
Upon sight of the letters which your Lordships wrote to the King concerning the victuals we have heard the bp. Of Winchester and lord Chamberlain in that behalf, who are very sorry that, either by the weight of the beef or the not spending in time of the loaf bread, there should arise any lack or loss; and yet they say that the quantity is such that the want of half the beef, bread and biscuit sent from hence cannot engender lack for the 56 days for the said 15,000 men;—and, in proof of this, the copy of a "rate" (tried in the King's counting house) of the supposed remainder is sent herewith;—yet they reckon not 54 pipes of beef provided in Newcastle by Shelley, as he has written. As to the loss of the beef, they think the number is there mistaken; for the vessels were not packed justly with 400 pieces, but some with more and some with less, except 26 pipes provided by Roulfe, of Sandwich, and a few packed by the Sergeant of the Catery. The ministers therein are of substance and, upon advertisement "in whose provision the default is found," shall be called to answer; only it is to be remembered that, if much dried by the salt, the beef must weigh lighter and yet contain "as much feeding and more than two pounds of fresh beef." As to the bread, the bp. of Winchester thinks that where you were informed of 2,300 dozens, the word dozens is a mistake, for the bread was everywhere delivered by "castes" and not dozens, two loaves to every cast, save from Hull, where the account is by single loaves, which Mr. Stannop will have foreseen; so that, besides the 9,000 and odd loaves from Hull, and the bread delivered at London to such as should have eaten it out of hand, all the rest did not extend to 2,300 doz. If 2,300 cast (worth about 20l.) has perished, the fault is in those charged to see that spent first which was not ordered to last so long time as has now passed. A copy of the instruction which the bp. of Winchester gave therein is enclosed.
And where you see not how 5,000l. gain might be made of the victuals; the bp. of Winchester says he never informed the King that you might so do, but, after communing with Mr. Nevel, wrote secretly to you, my lord Lieutenant, that whatsoever you could save therein "should be wholly your thank and no part his." The bp. of Winchester has made a declaration, which we caused to be examined in the countinghouse, showing that, after great allowance for waste, the victuals uttered as valued therein should extend to 15,000l. odd, "which is a good sum above the King's charges for the same." The bp. being informed that herring sold there at the beginning of Lent at 20s. a barrel, which is not 4 a penny, and the provision for the King being made at 8l. a last, which is but "5 a penny and a noble over," thought that 4 a penny should be good cheap among so many soldiers as should assemble at Newcastle, where it was written that there was no other fish. If the herring are not good the King's fishmonger in London must answer thereto. If they have waxed cheaper, the present account makes "no great foundation of gain" upon them; but doubtless you will cause them, if good, to furnish the army on "the fish days, which, after the custom of the sea in 8 weeks be 24," whereas the provision is only for 22. The bp. also says that he never willed Nevel to sell 30 last at Newcastle, but only showed that so much might be "spared, and converted into beef provided there by Shelley." As to selling the beef at 2d. the pound; the bp. says that the King's provision made at Newcastle by Shelley amounts to 1 ¼d. a pound, and 4l. for every pipe, "which wanteth not 20d. of that price," and elsewhere it costs the King more, and he thought that this charge should be considered in its utterance. He only reminded your Lordship of it and forbare to speak to the King, knowing that you would take "as much as might be taken of the soldier" to the King's profit. If the complement of the ships agrees not with the books sent, the bp. of Winchester is sorry if the truth of the books certified by so many honest men is not truly answered by such as had "charge of carriage."

27 April. 412. Thomas Cloterboke to Mr. Bourchier.
R. O. Begs favour in his controversy with Mrs. Rawllyns. Mr. Mayor's letter at this time will show how she is borne by the craft of the Chancellor, Lytyll Payne, and Whytt, the town clerk; and Master Dean, (fn. n4) too, is the writer's "heavy master." The goods which were stayed at his suit, to discharge his bond of 1,000 mks. for the bp. of Bristow, to the King's use, her friends would now have for the bp. of Gloucester. The writer would thus lose 100l. and more; but his trust is in God and the King's Council. Gloucester, 27 April.

Perceives by theirs of the 23rd that they intend to perform their promise to deliver Temptallen when the King's army arrives, thinking that to deliver it before might be the death of the earl of Anguishe, their uncle, their father and other friends in Scotland. Warns them that if persuaded to deliver the castle to the Governor and Cardinal they will shortly be entrapped like others, to the destruction of their uncle, father and all their friends; whereas if they keep it and deliver it to the King's army they will preserve their friends and benefit themselves. Learns, since the receipt of their letter, that the Governor and Cardinal have compelled their uncle and father to sign a bill for delivery of the castle to the abbot of Pasly; and also that the Governor has summoned Lenoux, Angus, Glencarn and Sir Geo. Douglas "of treason to underly the law the vijth of May, and that the abbot of Pasly shall besiege Temptallon; which if he do, and you keep it but viij days, I will promise you that I will relieve you in spite of the Governor and Cardinal and all the power of Scotland." Tynmouth, 27 April.
P.S.—If they lack men in the mean time, will furnish them by sea or land as they shall desire.

Understanding that the Governor and lords of this Kingdom are sending to him John Hay, their ambassador, writes to show him that their affairs, ever since the death of the King her husband, have been much troubled by the intrigues of the King of England, and the French King has been anxious to aid them, even for his own sake. Hopes that Christian, too, will help them owing to his friendship with the King of France and his relationship to the Queen her daughter. Streling, 28 April 1544.
28 April. 419. Chamberlain to the Council.
R. O. Upon the King's command to conclude with Mons. de Bueren for the 2,000 footmen, and now for 500 horsemen more as recompense for Bueren's goodwill; has declared the Council's intent to Bueren, who thanks the King. Has concluded the enclosed articles, signed with Bueren's own hand, and delivered him the money for the conduct of the footmen. About 400l. st. is required for the conduct of the 500 horsemen and their carts, wherein the writer has travailed for the King's advantage and sees that, after Landenberghe's rate, about 3,400 florins are saved. Footmen are to have 4 Philippus a month, i.e. 5 fl. of 20 stivers, which, rated in sterling money, is 12s. 6d. The amount for horsemen is not fixed, but to be as the Emperor gives. Has signed and delivered to Bueren one counterpane of the articles, and received the other signed by him; and now he desires with speed to have the King's letters of "reteindure" according to the enclosed minute. He promises earnestly to be at Ayre, 20 June next, with his whole force both at the Emperor's sould and the King's. The distance between Boisleduc and Ayre being about 50 leagues, urged him to foresee that the King was not further charged than need required; and so he appointed the muster to be at Boisleduc the 21st or 22nd May. Told him that seemed "too rath," and would cost 12 or 15 days' wages in vain; for the men would be at Ayre 15 days too rath, and so both waste money and spread a bruit which might "give th'enemies advice of his Majesty's pretence and purpose." Bueren answered that he had liever appoint "soldiers and men of light sort" ten or fifteen days before he needed them; for, after their arrival at Boisleduc, he that shall take the musters may delay his coming two or three days, and the muster will occupy five or six days in taking, "and they shall not enter in sould till all betaken"; the 2,000 footmen which the Regent has commissioned him to levy at the Emperor's sould he has appointed to muster, 4 or 5 leagues from Boisleduc, on 15 May, and so rather charges the Emperor than the King. He desires the King to send one to take the musters and pay a month's wages beforehand; for, as they are to have "sundry weapons according to the covenants," some of them must buy their weapons; many footmen who served last year with hand-gun must now lay it aside and buy pike or halbert, and horsemen who served with short handgun and boar spear must serve with lances, according to the King's request. These mutations, he says, will require time. As for the horsemen, Bueren desires the King to write to Mr. Wutton to send from thence the entertainment given by the Emperor. He says that for the horsemen at the Emperor's sould, the Regent has appointed him the best bands of these Low parts, but will not yet resolve where they shall join him; which, he judges, will be about Lisle, as she has appointed the musters about 8 May. As for the extraordinary pays of the hault officers, the Regent will have the King pay the one half and the Emperor the other, because the numbers of footmen are equal. As to the King's pleasure to make Bueren "his Highness's procurer at the feast of the Towzon," if the King will send him procuration he will serve; but he thinks that the Emperor will not keep the feast at this time. On coming hither yesternight, sought to borrow the aforesaid 400l. to deliver to Bueren, who departs hence within two days; but could not get it "by reason the payments of the Mart are past." Begs that it may be sent hither with all diligence. Here are no occurrents which the King does not know with more certainty from elsewhere. Andwarpe, 28 April 1544.

R. O. Begs him to give order for the 400l. st. for the conduct money of Mons. de Bueren's 500 horsemen and jointly with it for the King's letter of "reteindure." Bueren also desires to know the King's colours and device, to set them in his banners and liveries. Mr. Vaughan is returning and will be here in six or eight days; by which time the writer will be done with Bueren. Begs therefore to know whether to return home. Has written more largely to the Council. Andwarpe, 28 April 1544.

Had to return the messenger, praying him to borrow it and the writer would see it repaid within ten days. Begs order herein with great diligence. Buren writes that he has been with the Regent to know where the horsemen at her appointment should join the rest that he leads, but she will not yet resolve therein. Sends herewith the names of the bands of horsemen appointed by her. Andwarpe, 28 April 1544, at 7 p.m.

29 April. 426. The Swiss to the Diet of Spires.
R. O. Learnt by their letters dated 7 April at Spires that the French king was commonly said to be confederate with the Turk, and that the Swiss, as partners with the French king, were, with the Turk and French king, hindering the Emperor's efforts against the Turk. The Lords summoned the soldiers and enquired whether they knew any confederacy between the Turk and the French king, or had seen any Turks in the French camps; and they answered that there was not even a suspicion of such a thing. The Lords also signified the report to the French king, who answered, that he had sent an honorable embassy to the Diet of Spires to disprove these calumnies, but it was denied safe-conduct. The Lords desire that the war between the Emperor and French king, which endangers both the Empire and all Christendom, may be appeased; and they would have the Electors and Princes use their persuasions that the King's said ambassadors may have access to the Diet, and, having heard the allegations on both sides, reduce the monarchs to peace, so that a joint attack may be made on the Turk; and if the Lords are thought worthy to be mediators in this, they will spare no labour therein. Dated 29 April.

R. O.
vii., 77.]
Has received his letters of the 21st and heard the particulars of what he wrote to Granvelle, and as to Captain Seckinghen, of whom the King of England does not wish to make use; and what the King said therein to Chapuys (and his ministers and ambassadors had likewise said to the Emperor), and especially that the cause was Seckinghen's unwillingness and distrust of payment and the report that he was not qualified for such a charge; and, finally, that if the Emperor had promised the condition to Seckinghen, the King would rather lose the 2,000 fl. Delivered by his ambassador. Has answered, and made Grandvelle answer, that he firmly believes that the King would have been well served by Seckinghen, who for experience and worth was these two years past preferred (and his brother also) by the Queen of Hungary to the other captains of Germany and pensioned, and the Emperor would have given him charge of five ensigns for this war but that he thought to do a good turn for the King; and that, as to the assurance of the pay of the horsemen, it is demanded of the Emperor himself, who has had to give his signature to it; and, finally, that the Emperor acted with good intention, in fear lest the King should lose the said horsemen; and, because he had promised the said condition, telling the Ambassador that there would be no reason to return the said sum, and that he accepted what the Ambassador said of it (who however afterwards questioned Granvelle upon this point, who confirmed it). Advertises Chapuys of this in order that he may again justify the affair there, and notify how it is taken, assuring the King that the Emperor will gladly favour his captains for the raising of the said horsemen. Touching the Italians reported to be come into France, Chapuys answered truly. There was a bruit of the ships from Marseilles, but it has cooled. As to the Duke of Alburquerque, Chapuys has already received the answer, and the letters for the Duke. Is sure that he will satisfy the King's expectation. The gentleman by whom the Marquis del Gasto was to write particulars of Piedmont and Lombardy is not yet come. Has indeed learnt that the French felt the last combat so much that they have not yet moved; and those of Carrignan are resolved to hold out and have still victuals for a month and a half. As to the declaration against Scotland, refers to his sister, to whom he writes amply.
The lady of Egmond has represented how the English, last year, burnt her lands in France, and, fearing that they may do the same this year, has begged that Chapuys may represent it to the King. Chapuys shall speak to the King to have regard therein and also to the Emperor's other subjects, especially when the armies march, for it would not befit the mutual amity; and the damage is the Emperor's, whose subjects suffer enough from the enemies, besides exposing body and goods for the common enterprise.

Hertford has received letters of the 26th from the Council, showing that the King approves his proceedings, but that they were in doubt whether the former determination for the warden of the West Marches to burn Jedworth while the wardens of the East and Middle burnt Hadington still continued, now that the wardens of the East and Middle with 3,500 men were to meet the army at Edinburgh. It was determined that, as Hadington was burnt, Hawike should be burnt, but not Jedworth, and that determination continues; and Hertford intends, in his return, to make some honest account of Jedworth if time will serve. As to keeping Temptallen and other places, he will do his best, and will accomplish the devices written in the King's own hand in the platte of Temptallen. For provision on the Borders of victuals for the army in its return, and for small barks to carry letters and other things, order shall be taken. The Pauncye, Gret Gallye and Swallowe were not driven into Humber, as was thought; but the lord Admiral learns, by a crayer which he sent out with victuals for them, that they and two other men of war, of the five left in charge of Wm. Woodhouse, still keep aloof in the seas before this coast ready to sail with the fleet. Enclose advertisements received yesterday from lord Wharton.

Although in great things rumor forestalls diligence, she would not have failed last year, had she known him to be in Spain, Italy or any certain place in Germany, inform him of her father's death, who an his life admired the Emperor's virtues, and at his death exhorted the assembled princes of the realm to observe the league (renewed a few years before) with
the House of Burgundy and to return as soon as possible the ornament of the Order of the Golden Fleece. Soon afterwards, her tutorship and the administration of the realm was committed to James, earl of Arran, who sends this knight, Sir David Lindesay of the Mount, her chief herald, from the midst of internal and external dissensions, to convey to the Emperor her father's last eulogy and the insignia of the Order, and to offer, on behalf of the Governor and Princes of the realm, to keep the league with him.

Indeed, Arran would rather that Christian might congratulate than commiserate; but, as there is no appearance of more peaceful times, her tutor sends (out of the midst of wars and civil dissension) this John Hay, his kinsman and servant, for whom she begs credence.

2. Instructions for John Hay, ambassador to Christian III., king of Denmark, from Mary Queen of Scots and her tutor Arran.
Having delivered the Queen's letters, he shall salute the King and his Queen and all the princes of the Danes in the name of the Queen and Governor and Scottish princes, and signify that the Queen, for her age of 15 months, is vigorous in mind and body. He shall then show that the late King always was well affected to the King of the Danes and regretted at his death that he had never been able to show his love; that at his death Arran was appointed tutor of the little Queen and of the realm and designated heir of the realm if anything should happen to her; and that Arran is studious to preserve the amity and league which the Scots have had with the Danes. This done, he shall tell how the King of the English craftily solicited the late King his nephew to betray the most ancient amity and league of the Scots with the French, and, failing, sent a fleet of 40 ships to vex the coast of Scotland, two years ago, and at the same time a land army of 40,000 foot which, —— (blank) Oct., the late King repulsed over the Tweed. Then, about the end of November, the late King sent 10,000 men into the West of England, in which raid some of the Scottish nobles and barons were captured by the English and led to London, where, until Epiphany, they were treated more honorably than became captives. Meanwhile, in December, the late King died. The earl of Angus and his brother, Scottish princes who were condemned for treason and had been for fifteen years honorably maintained by the King of England to the hurt of the Scots, together with the aforesaid captive nobles, the King of the English thereupon permitted to return to Scotland free and with gifts and a promise to make peace. In return, the exiles and captive nobles promised "se curaturos pacta pacis et leges matrimonii ineundi inter illustrissimam nostram Reginam et Eduardum Valliae Principem, Anglorum Regis primogenitum." Their delivery and agreement for the future marriage still unknown in Scotland, the Governor in Parliament restored the aforesaid earl and his brother to their honours and lands; and then, on the return into Scotland of them and the captives, ambassadors were sent to England for the peace and marriage, which was concluded in the beginning of July on condition that before September the contract should be made absolute and the deeds exchanged. Returning to Scotland the ambassadors reported that this peace was published in London and other English towns, and the Governor thereupon published it in Scotland; and, relying upon it, many ships laden for France and Flanders left Scottish ports in the month of August, but were driven by weather into English ports, where at first they were well treated, but, shortly after, by the King's command, seized, and the merchandise sold. Nevertheless, at the appointed time, viz., the beginning of September, the Governor sent the ratification (diploma) of the peace and marriage to the King of the English; but that lung refused to deliver his in return. And So by seizing the ships and merchandise and by refusing his deed of confirmation he openly broke the peace. The peace being thus broken, the Scots in December following solemnly annulled the contract of peace and marriage, which was only made in the hope of perpetual peace (but the King of the English trusts much more to fomenting the dissensions of the Scots than to the marriage). The Governor and all orders of the Scots have, however, omitted no occasion of reconciliation, sending heralds to the King of England asking for safe-conduct for ambassadors to treat of peace.
These things being so, the Governor and princes of the Scots are sure that the King of the Danes will protect his little kinswoman and her realm against their inhuman enemy who seeks to enslave them. And, that the enemies of the Scots may be deterred by the greater number of their friends, the King of the Danes is to be persuaded to renew the old treaty which was between the Scots and the kings of the Norwegians (and the ambassador is to present his commission for this). This renewal is desired because it is certain that the confederacy entered into a few years ago between the King of the Danes and the Most Christian King of the French, which the King of Scots joined, will endure for ever. As the said Norwegian treaty stipulates that either king shall assist the other against all enemies, the King of the Danes is to be exhorted to lend seasonable aid against the King of the English, and to license the townsmen of Edinburgh and other Scottish merchants to purchase artillery and gunpowder, and also provisions, of which in Scotland is great scarcity. If such things cannot be purchased there, the King is to be asked to give the merchants letters of commendation to his allies.
Finally, he is to be asked to send his military advice, which alone the Scots have determined to follow.
