R. O. London, 26 Jan. '43.—"Brother John," I have received your letter of the 18th inst. and perceive you have sent part of the Cotsall wool to London. I and the stranger had rather you had kept it there still, for it is more charge to my moth[er] and to the stranger. If you have still as much as the stranger shall have, viz. 4 serplers, keep it "and Prat shall come doune and shut yt ryghtes ther, yff not a shall tayke yt here; and thys ys packyd in pockyttes and the wold have yt in serplers."

He will learn by the copy of the answer given in writing how Cardinal Farnese has been despatched. The Emperor stopped two days at Cologne in order that the Cardinal might not have occasion to make a longer sojourn; and Granvelle has amply advertised the English ambassador here of the whole dealing with him. Briefly, he was very unwelcome, and so received and treated, and his proposals flatly refused, as contained in the said answer, which shows how negotiations were cut off, with expressions of dissatisfaction that the Pope had declared himself in this without the knowledge or will of the Emperor. And he again passes through France too suspiciously. The Emperor spoke severely to him of the bad office done by the Holy Father in the affair of the Turk; as also did Granvelle, by the Emperor's command, in such manner that from that quarter (de ce coustel la) Granvelle has no need to send to Rome to obtain ill will, any more than into France, for the Cardinal told him openly that he was held to have procured the treaty with England and to alone prevent peace with France. But he owes to God one wonderful escape from the French, and hopes that, with his holy intention, God will guard him still from their other malignities. To return to the Cardinal; he said several times, as if that was a shield to excuse the Pope and him, that if the said treaty had not been made the Pope would have declared against France. He was answered sharply, and roundly told of the dissimulation used too suspectly as to the Lutheran practice of the king of France in Germany here, and that by his means the Imperial cities of Lozanne and Genesve and a good part of the realm are Jongliennes (Zwinglian), and that the king of France has given his Order to the Duke of Holstein, and of that declaration (et la telle declaracion) of the Sieur d' Orleans of his wish to be Lutheran, and that our religion was observed as well in England as in all the other provinces of Christendom "et ny sçauroit que reduire sa Ste, fors de l'auctorite Papale questoit point particulier." The Emperor told the said Cardinal that the king of France and his men were boasting that the Holy Father would aid them with a number of men in his pay, which the Emperor had been unwilling to believe (because the Holy Father was not so liberal); but he would tell the Cardinal that if His Holiness assisted the king of France against England with a single man he (the Emperor) would take it as done against himself. This was said with very great vehemence; and both the coming and going of the Cardinal and all incidents were as distant (estranges) as his reception in France was favourable, where he was treated like a god on earth but not so holily (Chapuys knows the customs of the Court of France). And although the Cardinal, being confused with so many remonstrances, has given hope that the Pope will declare against France, still, there is not too much hope of it. Chapuys shall be advertised of what is learnt of the result (succes) of his journey and return to Rome. Will not further detain the courier, who is going into Flanders. Spire, 26 Jan. 1543.

Two days ago received her letters of the 10th. Had already been advertised by the Emperor of the three points proposed by the English ambassador mentioned therein. Cannot yet perceive that the English are dissatisfied. Perhaps they wait to hear what Don Fernande de Gonsaga is able to obtain, whom this King and his ministers prayed to intercede with the Emperor touching the first two points, viz., the Spanish harquebusiers and the declaration of the Scots as enemies. If Don Fernande's answer is not to their taste they will doubtless complain to Chapuys, who will then reply as she commands.
As to the Spaniards, Don Fernande pointed out another difficulty, viz., that it was not in the Emperor's power to make so small a number come to a country so distant from their nation, instancing the Italians who came last with the Emperor and are all returned on the plea that they were too few, and yet they were three times more than this King asked for.
To certify her of the state of things with the Scots, there seems no appearance of any amity with them, especially as Earl Douglast and his brother, who during their exile from Scotland received so much honour and benefit from the King, have allied themselves with the rest. True, this has been by constraint, as they allege, and they have informed the King that in time and place, i.e. at his coming with an army, they and their friends would do him notable service. The English and Scots make daily courses upon one another with as much hostility and cruelty as ever. Has not heard of other proclamation of war between them; indeed they are not accustomed to make any, considering themselves to be always enemies unless there be some truce between them. It were reasonable, as she writes, that, with the publication of the Scots as enemies there, those here should reciprocate with regard to the duke of Holstein.
As to the third point, the centiesme denier, thinks her representations urgent, and especially that, besides fraud at Antwerp, the English would also defraud the dues levied in Cadiz, which are greater and from which they are not ("en" qu "ne"?) exempt. For their importunity, if they persevere, there seems to be no remedy more apt and prompt than those of which he has already written.
Touching the French ships taken near Garnisey the English avoid making further instance, knowing it to be unreasonable, hoping, moreover, to have the more occasion to contravene the safe-conduct granted by her and the Emperor. Upon this last matter, has been three days with the Council, who have given him to understand that the retention of the herring (for release of which she wrote to the King) was only in virtue of a law empowering them to take victuals arriving in their realm at such price as they think reasonable. On telling them that, then, the other goods might pass into France under the Emperor's safe-conduct, they answered that they did not wish for the moment to deny that the Emperor, without infringing treaties, could give safe-conducts (which, however, at first they did deny by virtue of the 6th article of the treaty and were shown that they could not well avail themselves of it) adding, however, that it must be understood, that if the ships, whatever safe-conduct they might have, came to land in this realm they would be detained, and the like might be done in the Emperor's countries to their ships carrying merchandise into France. And they denied entirely the neutrality and traffic of those of Garnise with the French. On showing them that to deny the safe-conducts was not only unreasonable and unjust but would give place to dissension and enmity between the subjects of both sides, could get no other answer; and has hitherto been unable to get from them the final and resolute intention of their King. Meanwhile, thinks that she would do well to represent the matter very amply to the ambassador in order that he may write of it; and among other things, that if they were to act as regards past safe-conducts according to the Council's answer to Chapuys, those of Cadix, Spain, Mecine and other the Emperor's countries could detain all English goods going to the Levant to furnish the country of the Turks, and likewise those of Flanders could detain English ships going into Eastland as either going to the duke of Holstein's country or to profit the said duke by the "tonlieux" paid at Copenhagen.
The King shows great care and diligence to make the coming enterprise effective, and said some days ago that the French miscalculate if they think that because of their practises in Scotland he would give up his journey over sea (il lairroit de passer par dela), for he will do it all the sooner and with a greater power than he before intended.
Yesterday received her letters of the 12th inst. to obtain safe-conduct for Jehan Paulo and Jehan Henry Helbert, brothers, merchants of Augsburg; and at once sent them to the Council together with the memorials sent by the merchants' factor. The Council looked at each other smilingly, but Chapuys's man could not get a word in answer; and to escape his importunity they separated.
Suggests that it would be shameful not to pursue quickly the matter of the safe-conducts after entering so far in it, as well for the Emperor's honour as not to give the English occasion to encroach further upon the Emperor's authority.
As to the Legate, this King is informed that on his arrival in France they made as if the King of France would not listen to peace; but he ultimately was willing to do all that the Emperor should please, and the Legate solicited from the Queen of France letters to the Emperor and to the Queen of Hungary in favour of peace. Whatever confidence this King may have in the Emperor he will not be without suspicion (fantasie) until he hears that the Legate has left the Emperor's Court without effect, and he would like still better, if it were feasible, that the Legate's access to the Emperor should be prevented.
Those of this Council (and principally he (fn. n1) that last was ambassador in France, and upon whose assurance Count Bernardin de Sainct Boniface came to this country) continually importune Chapuys to write for the release of the said Bernardin, who, they pretend, might now be of service to this King.

Not having anything of great importance, and waiting for those here to speak of the Emperor's answer to their ambassador upon the three points contained in his (the Emperor's) letters of the 3rd inst., does not weary his Majesty with letters which could contain no more than the copy herewith of letters to the Queen of Hungary. Among several things which he advised Don Loys d'Avilla to tell this King, to show the Emperor's affection to him, was one which the King liked marvellously, viz., that the Emperor desires nothing more than to see him in possession of what he claims in France, for as the Emperor had no other aim than to make war on the Turk he would not only have his flanks secure (les espaules asseure) but would expect such aid from the King as the importance and sanctity of the enterprise required. The King declared that in that case he would do the office of a good prince and perfect friend. London, 27 Jan. 1544.

R. O. At London, 27 Jan. 1543:—Describes the packing of wool and his attempts to get money, with some reference to Ant. White and Mr. Cave's matters. "Herewith from Richard Whethell I send you th'order of the voyage that you require to have and his letter therewith, being somewhat anciently dated." Your brother Robert comes to town to-morrow and I will then talk with Mr. Fawnte. Mr. Coope I hear not of. Thanks for hens sent from Tykeford, &c. Mr. Doctor Augustyne has delivered me his counsel by writing (herewith), and a box of ointment for my sister's disease. The box is trussed with a pair of knives of 3 in a sheath and a bodkin, which Mrs. Fay ray sends my sister for a token, and packed within the canvas of a small "rondelet of sekke" containing 3 gallons and 3 pints, with 6 lbs. of thread bound thereunto. Sends also a "toneke" of capers and another of olives for his sister, carriage not paid.

Enclose a letter of Pringle's showing that the lords of Scotland are not so well agreed to the Governor as is reported. As Richmond herald is now arrived, and Pringle's letter shows that only the Cardinal remains with the Governor at Stirling, if Richmond go to the Governor he is like to have the answer Henry Raye had, viz., "that he must tarry for answer to the Parliament," and this tarrying might make men think that the King "doth seek of the Scots." Suffolk, therefore, stays him here, seeing that the Scottish Parliament is not until the 18th of next month. Darnton, 27 Jan. Signed.
P.S.—It is to be considered whether forthwith to show all extremity to the Scots or tarry to see whereunto the new breaches whereof Pringle writes will grow. Ask whether to practise "for getting in of Sir George Douglas when he shall be at large." Meanwhile those who have always been the King's enemies shall not be spared.

In pursuance of their letters, went to the Viceroy at his arrival, and reminded him of their letter delivered to him after his departure from the King. He said he would solicit the Queen therein. Next morning, he said he had spoken with the Queen, and that the Council had heard the matter; the arrest by the governor of Camfere should take effect and all Scots without the King's safe-conduct should be taken for common enemies so that all to whom she might give safe-conduct should enjoy like immunity, as, for instance, if she gave a Frenchman safe-conduct to carry herring to France and return with wine. Answered that if the Queen and her Council, having regard to the late "intreatie," concluded anything and gave it to him in writing he would obtain the King's pleasure thereon; but to conclude any new article without first knowing his master's pleasure he had no commission. Next night the Viceroy, who was to depart to the Emperor in the morning, asked Layton to come to him in the morning for his letters to the Council and the Queen's to the King. Went early, and the Viceroy said "that the King of Denmark was up with an army and was the Emperor's enemy" and must be taken as a common enemy by the King as the Scots must be by the Emperor; and, as to the Scottish ships at Camfere, the Ambassador in England would report the Emperor's pleasure and he (the Viceroy) would write to the Council and send the letter to Layton's lodging. On the 6th day after his departure, Layton received from him the enclosed packet for the Emperor's ambassador. Not satisfied with the Viceroy's answers, invited the President and Chancellor Nigri to dinner next day, and had long reasoning with them about the ships, beginning in the Civil Laws and ending in the last "intreatie." Perceived that but one ship was arrested, and asked why the others were not arrested also since they stood by and saw their fellow take the Englishmen on the coast of Northefooke, reasoning by the treaty, of which he had seen a copy in Mr. Wotton's chamber at his coming hither. They promised answer in a day or two. Two days after, sent to the Queen for access; who said "she was ready to ride to see her girfalcons fly at the heron," but would send for him next day. Dined that "next day" with the Prince of Orange and all the Council save the President, and, during dinner, she sent word that she would "go see a flight at the heron," but would speak with him next morning at 8 a.m.; which she did, and said she had sent to arrest all the Scottish ships and desired Layton to write to the Council to examine the Englishmen who were taken about the demeanour of the Scots ships that were present. At his leaving, the President brought him forth, saying "I did not forget your request the last day. I doubt not but the Queen hath told you how we have sent to arrest all the Scottish ships." Thanked him. Expects that the Viceroy's letters will show what he has done. Bruxelles, 27 Jan.

St. P., ix. 589.
The Emperor and the Queen have sent express to know if open war is published between the King and the Scots; in order that the Emperor may, in accordance with the treaty, publish the Scots his enemies, provided the King does the like as regards the duke of Holsten, who both sent the Queen a declaration of war last year, and has invaded the Emperor's countries. The Queen writes that she will, at the Council's motion to the Viceroy of Sicily, license Scots who have the King's safe-conduct, although that means altering the 6th article of the treaty.
She wonders much that the merchants of the Low Countries are hindered from enjoying safe-conducts given by the Emperor and her, in spite of so many remonstrances, although there is no clause in the treaty to the contrary. Since they were commonly used in former wars between the Emperor and the French, the King should have stipulated in the treaty for the abolition of that custom. The King grants safe-conducts to his subjects which are observed here; and, besides, she is informed that trade is carried on with France by way of Garnise, as if neutral, although the Emperor is bound for its defence. Has a renewed and earnest charge from the Queen touching the affair of the herrings, as the ships went for provision of the Emperor and her; and especially because the Chancellor and Winchester answered Chapuys that ships arriving here bound for France would, whatever safe-conduct they might have, be arrested, as theirs so bound might be in the Low Countries. She thinks this is not the King's wish, for it would give their subjects a thousand occasions to hate each other. Begs them to answer plainly in writing whether merchandise being carried to the countries of any enemy of the Emperor and King may be arrested.
Will tell the Admiral, this afternoon, the rest of what their Majesties write. London, 28 Jan. 1544. Signed.

Has seen his late letters to the Council, containing his wise discourse for an invasion of Scotland with 20,000 men in the latter end of May. Likes it well, save that Suffolk has omitted to say how many of the 20,000 should be horsemen. As the King intends to invade France this year, the invasion of Scotland should be about March. In May there will be little grass; but in March all last year's provision will still remain. Desires him to signify, in a letter apart, his opinion of an invasion in March, and whether sufficient victual can be furnished. Yorkshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire are so well stored with wheat, malt, beans, peas and other haver that enough might be spared for the said army for six months; and, if not, Suffolk is to see what may be done for an army of 14,000 foot and 2,000 horse for a month or 20 days. That number is more than both sides in Scotland had at their last assembly; and could sack Edinburgh town (if the castle will not yield) and burn Tevydale and the Mershe in the way homeward, so that the Scots, with never so much aid of France or Denmark, could not have passage to annoy this realm, and many inhabiting this side the Frithe should be enforced to abandon their own country. Has determined to revoke Suffolk thence, to pass with him into France, and to send Hertford thither; but, in recompense of his past travail, would give him the honor of this enterprise, if it seem feasible. If however Suffolk cannot both conduct this enterprise and prepare himself to attend the King, Hertford shall be sent, so that Suffolk may "instruct and nosill him" both for the enterprise and other things. Desires the names of men in those parts who can help to conduct the said army. Suffolk is to keep these letters secret, and notify what shires the men shall be levied in.

The Diet (comitia) indicted at Spires two months ago proceeds slowly. None of the Princes are yet come, but they have sent commissioners; and the Emperor has turned aside to Heydelberg where this is now the sixth day of his stay with the Elector Palatine. Evils of this delay now when the judgment of Chamber is infringed, the Turk in open hostility, and the dissension in religion more serious. The ejection of the duke of Brunswick and the dispute about the county of Cattensis, between the Landgrave and the Prince of Orange, are likely to cause trouble. The bishop of Paris, delegated by the French king to this Diet, awaits the Emperor's safe-conduct at Nancy in Lorraine. The bp. of Trent, by the Emperor's command, 5 weeks ago, despatched 6,000 footmen to Milan with his brother. The French king, because of the confederation with the Turks and war made on the Emperor, is ill heard by Germany. Ferdinand's coming is delayed by the Diet of Bohemia, Slesia and Carinthia at Prague. Ferdinand's forces are too weak to detain the enemy, much less to repel him; and unless the Emperor concedes something to the Protestants little will be done in this Diet. Spires, 29 Jan. 1544.

After commending to his Majesty his "son and heir apparent, the baron of Dungennen," the bearer of the present letter, humbly beseeches him to move his Deputy in Ireland, on his return thither, to give him relief against such Irishmen as heretofore owed him rent and other duties, of which his ancestors were justly seized, and who do now withdraw the same because they perceive that, being the King's servant and subject, he no longer uses force against them to obtain satisfaction thereof, and who are not yet so reclaimed that by due order of law he may recover the same.—"From my house of Dongennene, the last of January."

79. Ireland.
R. O. "Articles devised by the King's Majesty's Deputy and Council of Ireland to be declared to his Highness and his most honorable Council."
1. The Deputy, being now licensed to visit the King, may declare that the realm, after years of civil war and desolation, is now well quieted; and, albeit not come to such "firm perfection" as other countries which have always been under civil governance, it was never so quiet within any man's remembrance, and is in unexpected "towardness to be reduced to one monarchy."
2. If told that to effect this has been costly and to maintain it needs an army, the Deputy may answer that if the King had not "prestely" (like a noble prince) been at that charge this realm had been in peril of total destruction. Honor constrained him to pacify the rebellion, first of the Geraldines, and then of all the Irishmen, and then it remained either to leave the realm in peril of like attemptates, or else to make a new conquest, which would require such a number of inhabitants and of such "haviour" as would be an unsustainable charge (and the event doubtful), or else by policy to reform the land to one monarchy and obedience. Considering that after the Geraldine rebellion was stayed the King had not the obedience of a fifth part of the land, and even in that part is a parcel, in Leinster by the coast between Dublin and Waterford, inhabited by the Cavenaghs, O'Murchoes, Nolans, Birnes and Thooles, who thus divide the King's strength and are "the gall, occasion and mischief of the rebellion of this realm," and that if we had "prestely" proceeded to their reformation all the Irishmen would have feared the like, and resisted it, we saw no remedy but to put them out of doubt first.
3. Now, immediately upon the stay of these great Irishmen and English rebels, we have entered into the said portion of Leinster and garrisoned it so that the inhabitants must do as the King shall prescribe.
4. There are but two courses, a conquest or a politic reformation. The first (as the place lies next England, amid the King's subjects, and is but 40 English miles long by 20 broad) is feasible, "and that with a portable charge," and were an experiment of the facility or difficulty of the like in the residue, and also a terror to them "to consider the exterminion of theise antient rebells." A politic reformation, viz., to content the principal of them, would peradventure for a time keep the territory quiet; but, lest they should revert to their old naughtiness and subvert the good order commenced in other remote parts as well as hinder the government here, that way seems not the best. Think that the King should plant in one corner there, together, 100 of his army with other English subjects of this realm, and divide the land into three parts, giving one to the Englishmen, the second to the gentlemen now inhabiting there, and the third, with all the chief garrisons, to remain in his own hands.
5. The retinue, when not busied elsewhere, should reside in the garrisons there, which they cannot do unless the King be at some charge (in lieu whereof certain of them may be discharged) for victualling them, and they may be paid monthly. As we have often written, the delay of payment, which is no saving to the King, is a great hindrance to his affairs, and but for it Leinster had not been unreformed now.
6. This enterprise, unlike other "volant journeys," may not be left now that it is begun, for if the holds now in his Highness' possession were abandoned the inhabitants would raze them, and unless that corner of Leinster be groundly reformed his Majesty must be at the continual charge of a garrison here; whereas, this done, the King has in perfect obedience by the sea coast next England 120 or 140 miles in length, which "were so large an entry into Ireland that it would be hard for all the residue ever to close again."
7. If it seem chargeable to continue a garrison in the fortresses of Leinster, the King "may erect one or two honorable estates of English blood" there, which would be vigilant to keep the country obedient.
8. Heretofore the King wrote to us to certify him of such as had served him here, that he might give them some portion of his waste lands. He cannot better reward them and inhabit parcel of this portion of Leinster than to plant a number of them there.
