Enclose letters which have arrived from the Warden of the East Marches with the copy of one to him from his son the Warden of the Middle Marches, showing his proceedings for the relief of such Scottishmen as have "entred into bande and service of your Highness" against the Governor and other Scottish enemies now assembled. The whole power of the Bishopric is also preparing with all possible diligence to repair to the Borders to minister further aid to the said wardens. Albeit the warden of the Middle Marches seems to be already set forward to Jedwourth, they trust that he will not venture too far, for they wrote to him and his father, if the enemies appeared to be over strong, to await the assembling of the power of the Bishopric.

Here runs a bruit that in the beginning of this summer the Scots will send one McOnell, of the Isles, with many Wilde Scots to land in the North of this land, where Young Geralde, by aid of the Frenchmen, will also arrive. The French king's practices last year, whereof the writer sent Wriothesley knowledge from Odoynall, rather confirm this; but with Tirone and Odoynall as they are there is little to fear, and the writer has not greatly busied himself, except by letters, to agree them, lest, being in amity as in times past, the French king might persuade them to "do somethings unsitting." If one or two of the King's ships should now peruse the North of this land they would not fail to have some Frenchmen or else to encounter the galleys of the Scots, who yearly resort into this land and do much harm. There are no ships here for this as the havens of Dublin and Drogheda are so evil.
Is loth to touch anything displeasant to Ormonde, but duty constrains it. When last in England Ormonde offered to exchange his holds upon the frontiers of the Cavernaghes (being in that part of Leynster which the King would have reformed) for lands in England. Now he will not part with the principal of them but for lands here not meet to be given, such as Kylkey lordship, the properest house and goodliest lordship which the King has in this realm. When he moved this it seemed that the Council here wished it, until the writer said that he would sooner have his hand cut off than counsel the King to depart with that lordship. Ormond has most of the Council "of this land birth" in his fee, and others also; indeed no man of learning seems disinterested except "poor Sir Thomas Cusake." As it is dangerous to write of such things, begs Wriothesley to send for John Goldesmith, clerk of the Council here, who can tell how things go. There is now a great matter concerning Ormond's liberties in Tipperary, which he makes a great shire and claims therein all jurisdiction save treasure trove, rape, burning and counterfeiting money, by a grant of Edw. III. and books of the usage thereof since, in which grant is also the grant of the prize wines. Both these grants were resumed in the late King's days by a Parliament holden before Sir Thomas Poynynges. Now Ormond shows two exemplifications under the Great Seal of Ireland showing that he should be restored to the said liberties and prize wines by another Act of Parliament which is not found among the records here. His father, being Deputy, might cause exemplifications to be made, but the truth will be known by search among the King's records in England; for, since Poynynges' parliament, all Acts must be certified into England and returned under the King's great seal. These liberties are the undoing of the country. By the grant of prize wines he should pay the King 20s. for every tun, which has not been paid for many years, and the arrears are too great a burden for him to pay. As he names both sheriff and escheator in Tipperary we, to save the King's right, direct no process to them; and "so the thing runs in confusion." Cannot suffer the King to be wronged, and yet those who should chiefly support him favour the contrary party; and he fears that some here have counselled Ormond not to part with lands upon the straits and passages, for, whereas in Michaelmas term he was content to do so, now this last term he would only part with such as stand in the plains. Without the fortresses upon the passages it would be hard to reform Leynster, and the writer suspects Ormond of a wish to reform it himself and take a great part to his own use; indeed Wriothesley will remember that he offered to reform it for certain money, "which yet he harpeth upon." If the King would earnestly write to Ormond for the exchange, for recompense in England, it would be a mean the sooner to reform this country and a good stay upon him, for here he has enough land and rule. To prove that this is not written of malice sends letters and copy of letters from some who love Ormonde. Mr. Wise's letter shows how St. Leger is deferred the money which he laid out for the galloglas that served the King, and cannot recover it under Ormond's rule in Waterford. The King may now somewhat bridle him in the said liberties and prize wines, and might among other recompense, advance him to the Order of the Garter, for he has an honorable heart and is a man meet to serve any prince.

26 Feb. 274. Sir Osborne Echingham to Henry VIII.
R. O. Being the best part of his life brought up in the wars and better able to serve in that feat than in any other way, he obtained licence (being one of the King's pensioners) to repair to this realm, then in rebellion. Now that, by the King's wisdom and the Deputy's pains, this realm is in such quiet as has not been seen, and the King encumbered with his ancient enemies the Frenchmen, the writer would be glad, being now somewhat grown in years, to spend the rest of his time in service. If the King would have him continue to serve here, where he has been marshal of the retinue full four years, he begs a waste lordship called Dunbrody, late belonging to a house of religion and surveyed at 22l. 16s. 5d., in exchange for the manor of Netherhall, late belonging to Hycklyng, Norf., which he has of the King for life, worth 16l. 13s. 4d. yearly. The said lordship lies among the wild Irish and is much wasted, but he hopes, to bring it to better "manewrance" and to be the better able to serve his Prince and yet leave somewhat to his wife and children, of whom his eldest son in now attendant on the King. Having no better present, sends a "hobye" bred in this realm, which he trusts will prove a very good horse. Dublin, 26 Feb. 36 Hen. VIII. Signed.

26 Feb. 275. Henry Suthwyke to [John Johnson].
R. O. Calles, 25 Feb. 1544:—By yours of the 9th inst. I perceive that you have received mine of the 12th ult. mentioning the sale of two pockets to Adam Copcot, for David Wodrof, of whom please receive your bill when you come to London.
This day Mr. Paget, the King's secretary, departed hence towards the Emperor's Court at Brucelles. We hope he will end this long brabbling in Flanders, so that our merchants may be set at liberty; until which time those who make payment for Markes Backlier and Peter Carpentier refuse to pay the money due to you and Walter Leveson. I have written gentle letters to the "said parties" to help me, pretending that I am bound to Thos. le Mayre (to whom I have advised Robert Andrew to deliver the bills) in a greater sum to be paid in the Balne Mart. "I pray God they play the honest men with us. Now they must be handled with fair words, but I trust the day will come that I may call them javelles as they be indeed."
Here is arrived Anthony Franson and Quirin Peter Garbrantzz of Layche. I fear I shall not fasten many of your fells on them, so many good fells being in the hands of men who must needs sell. "Boston men have good gear and (as I suppose) will afford great pennyworths." I dare not defer the sale of Mr. Cave's for yours.
John of Calles, general of 100 men, keeps the Red Pile at the Frenchmen's noses quietly, to their great displeasure, whose old acquaintance Bullen "is of late waxed wondrous strange to them."
P.S.—26 Feb.:—I have sold to Ant. Franson "all Mr. Cave's London somers and all his contreys," (viz. 6,000 fells, the London somers for 18½ nobles, the contreys for 15½ nobles) and with them 1,000 of your fells (at 15 nobles) with great difficulty. I am sorry that I could do no better for the despatch of yours, but if I had "forslewyd" the sale of Mr. Cave's he would have been angry. Of this sale 50l. st. must be forborne till 16 Sept., which I will put to Mr. Cave's account. Of this 50l st. for your fells you shall owe me 45l. "by means of Markes Backlers money unpaid." Please advertise Mr. Brudnell that his "excuse for non commyng hether of assestence this next quarter the Company hathe rec'd, but well not admytt the same raysonable." If war should chance in Flanders (as we hope it will not) it were wise to make such specialities as you shall receive of the strangers in some Fleming's name, if you know any you can trust.

Sends letters just received from the Warden of the Middle Marches showing what money he desires for the entertainment of the Tevydales who have entered the King's service. Have despatched him 200l. in prest. The said letters also show the lack of money in the garrisons, for relief of which we have essayed to borrow 1,000 mks. in Newcastell and have disbursed what we ourselves have; for the garrisons are almost a month unpaid and there are fortifications at Tynmouth and other charges.

278. Otwell Johnson to his Brother, John Johnson.
R. O. London, the last of February, 1544.—Commendations to my sister your wife. As I doubt not you are come to Tykeford, towards London, for the wool fleet shipping, which it was yesterday determined not to begin until the morrow after Low Sunday (for causes which you may conjecture) I send this express messenger, Thos. Rose's servant, to you. If you retard your coming it were meet to answer Henry Southwyke's letters by bearer. "All men's expectation of good news out of Flanders dependeth upon Mr. Pagettes answer." About the time of his departing hence, writing came from Englishmen there that our ships and mariners might depart home, but neither our merchants nor their goods were released. Some merchants have gotten away by stealth leaving their goods. Others who ventured thither since the restraint had liberty to return. "This is a strange kind of restraint in mine opinion, and to last so long after the King's Majesty hath so gently used th'Emperor's subjects here that could complain of any loss; for to the uttermost denier they have been recompensed of all their loss, not escaping so much as a ship tankard. Well; all men's hope is yet good and the worst shall shortly be known.
"I am offered money in the street by Englishmen for the payments of the Cold Mart, and in default thereof to repay them here again 14 days or three weeks after Easter. If you come not up now yourself write me your mind herein and where your bills are of that mart, for Mrs. Fayrey doth call upon me for her debt of the same time, which she sayeth she can now take money for of honest men after the sort as is abovesaid. Th'exchange goeth here at 26.6, at sight.
"Your Staple Inn is re-delivered into your hands again from the King's Majesty gratis, to enter presently as soon as my lord Deputye of Calleis can provide him with another house."
"Mr. Haynes is doing still with your [wool?] (fn. n1) as fast as he can. Your Teken wool rised very basely, for out of the ij serplers he cannot get one poutt A.B. and the rest half M.C. and A.K., but not all. Mr. Coope and one Lawe serve all comers at Leden Hall of wool so fast that I can get no moo chepemen than I am already acquainted with; but yet I am doing with a little now and then, and I sell as well as the best of them so much as I sell." Your Cotterstoke milne will not be bought, nor will Mr. Nowell have Baker's house, as the auditors show me. Commendations to Mr. Cave and his wife and Mr. Flecton and his household. "I have given to Wm. Asheby, this bearer, iijs. iiijd towards his charges. Write what you give more."

Declaration by the earl of Cassillis that, being, with others, taken prisoner at the journey of Solom Mosse, the King, at their desire, let them return home upon bonds and hostages to reënter this realm when required by the King and his wardens, one of whom, lord Wharton, required this of him, and he accordingly repaired to the King, whom he found still well disposed to the Queen of Scotland, his sovereign, and to all that realm, and content to have the marriage and peace take effect if assured that the treaty would be observed. Has besought licence to repair into Scotland to declare this, promising to reënter by the 1st of June next, or earlier upon 15 days' warning. Subscribed the last day of February, 36 Hen. VIII.

28 Feb. 281. Paget and Wotton to Henry VIII.
R. O.
St. P., x. 310.
Arriving here on Thursday, Paget communicated his instructions to Wotton, and they next day sent for audience, which they obtained to-day at 3 p.m. After commendations and delivery of Henry's letters, Paget said that, as it was now three weeks since Wotton rehearsed certain important matters in writing, with request for the Emperor's answer, and whereas it was promised here (besides agreed in England) that the arrest here should be discharged, and yet no answer was made and the arrest continued,—and whereas the Emperor deferred his answer touching his declaration until answered of the thing which his ambassadors were charged to require of Henry, he (Paget) was sent to know the Emperor's, answer to the articles, and what thing it was that he meant, and to desire him to discharge the arrest. He answered (1) that when Wotton read him the articles he was very sick and feeble and, as the matters seemed important and to need answer in writing, he desired a copy, or else that Wotton would declare them to the Regent, but this was refused and so no answer was made; (2) that the thing whereunto he would first be answered was the cause of Chapuys' return into England, viz., to know Henry's answer to the reasons alleged to Hertford and Winchester, who would not admit them (probably because they could not trangress their commission); (3) that Henry had forced him to make the arrest, but when his subjects in England were discharged, and recompensed for damages and interest, it should be discharged, and he had ordered that the ships, with some of the things, should be discharged.
In reply the writers answered nothing directly to the articles (as the points were all included in their other answers, except Henry's request to the Emperor to learn what his enemy would do for peace) because not commissioned to repeat the articles, but keep it for futher practice of a truce or other overture (which Henry once determined, and afterwards, upon Hippolito's message, commanded Paget to forbear until further instructed). Beg instructions in this, as the Emperor has promised resolute answer by his Council touching the arrest; and if it proves like the Emperor's own answer therein, Paget will forthwith return home. Neither he nor Wotton have ever seen the Emperor so round or quick; "true it is he was somewhat roundly handled, and yet not without a reverence." As to the Emperor's "unknown thing wherewith he would stop his answer for declaration," Paget said he had never heard of any reasons given by the Ambassadors, who themselves told him they wist not what was meant. The Emperor replied that they had written that they had declared reasons both to the King and his Council. Paget said he himself was one of the "minimes" of the Council but had never heard the ambassadors make any reason why the Emperor should not declare himself. "By Saint Mary," quoth the Emperor "there is good reason. Why should I declare myself enemy to him to whom the King my good brother hath given me his consent to be a friend?" And here he cited the answer brought him by D'Arras. Paget replied (1) that the consent had a condition, (2) if Henry would have treated without regard to the Emperor he might have had a good bargain, (3) he was moved to make the said answer by the Emperor's necessity, and (4) even if the consent had been unconditional the French king afterwards did an act which annulled the peace. The Emperor said that the Frenchmen came but to recover Boulloyn, which was not mentioned in the treaty nor was he bound to give aid for it. Paget replied that aid was not spoken of; and, even if all three princes had, by consent, made peace together, the French king, invading one of them, was enemy to both by the treaty. To that the Emperor could not answer, but, after a pause, roundly and "couttedly" said "You press me with the treaty and ye tell me ye had respect to my necessity, but it was your not going forward according to your treaty that drave me to do as I did, for, by the treaty that was made when the Viceroy was in England, it was agreed that my good brother should go to Paris, which he did not, and, being required by Monsr. Darras, said he could not." Details consequent altercation, in which the Emperor held that the words of the treaty selon la raison de guerre referred to the progress of Henry's army only after it had passed the Somme, and that when Paget was with him it was agreed that one of the armies should go forward; Paget answered that Henry followed the Emperor's example at Luxemburgh, Commercy, Ligny and St. Desier, and that he knew what was in the treaty, for he was at the making of it; the Emperor said that these matters had been enough talked of already, but, if Paget wished, some of his Council would debate them again with him. Paget replied that they had been talked of, but not answered, and he would be content to do so.
They then turned to the matter of the arrest, which the Emperor said was first begun by Henry. Paget said the things arrested in England were of small value, worth 9,000 or 10,000 cr. The Emperor replied that they were worth 200,000 cr., for above a hundred ships were arrested, and when restitution was made in England, with damages and interest, and he knew how his subjects should be used in future he would make relaxation here. Paget said the arrest was wholly discharged in England, and the ambassadors had admitted that Henry had done as much as could be done therein. The Emperor said the ships were discharged indeed; but the merchandise was sold there far under the value and not as they might be sold in France. Paget replied that in France they might not be sold, according to the treaty (by which also the ordering of the Emperor's subjects hereafter was provided for, and another way of proceeding was prescribed than that which the Emperor had taken) if he took it for firm and intended to keep it;—in that, and likewise for victualling, and having munitions for our money and passage for our men, it was plain. The Emperor replied hotly, that he wished that other men kept the treaty as he did; his good brother looked to be superior over him in all things, but he also was a prince of honor and could not endure this, although he esteemed Henry's friendship above all other; this matter of arrest had been sufficiently answered, but he would appoint the Queen or some of his Council to make further answer. Describe how Paget then begged him, as he complained of his disease, to give the answer, and he promised to appoint some of his Council to make it.
Like not this proceeding, and look for the similar answer from the Emperor's Council. And albeit the ambassadors in England have answered, and Wotton also has been told here, that it is not meant that the arrest shall be continued for Jasper Dutche and the Spaniards, little trust is to be put therein. Since Paget's arrival all the Spanish merchants, and also Jasper Dutche, are come hither cracking that they shall be restored ere the arrest is discharged, and bruiting that Henry has anew arrested a Spanish fleet in the West country. These merchants almost direct the Emperor, whose ministers have great stocks in their hands. Believe that if Henry had known what they have learnt since Paget's coming hither he would not have passed much upon the arrest; for, where the merchants said that their goods here were worth 100,000l or even 200,000 mks., the real value is not above 60,000l. , and that is little more than sufficient to pay the debts which they owe here, as Mr. Vaughan and Damysell have learnt. Some merchants have goods here and owe nothing, some have goods here and owe somewhat, and some have no goods here and owe much; but, by private examinations in England, the particulars might be known, and, those who owe debts paying them to their fellows that are losers, it would be no great loss to the merchants though the thing came to an extremity. By staying the Spanish fleet and restraining strangers from exporting cloth, especially unwrought cloth, for which Henry has given many licences, to the great relief of the town of Antwerp towards the building of their strong wails, he will "drive them here to discharge first."
Ask whether, if the relaxation of the whole is not granted, they shall, before Paget's departure, get as much as they can; and also, if the Scottish ambassadors come, whose lodging is already marked, whether to charge the Emperor or his Council with that matter, or let it slip, to the intent that Henry may likewise receive ambassadors of Scotland without the Emperor's consent.
The French ambassador Morette departs shortly in post into France. Guasto, who was sent for and was half way hither, is remanded back again; and the Spanish chief captains commanded to go after him. The carracks of Genes hired by the French king are stayed by the Emperor's command, at the persuasion of Janetto Doria, who lately came hither. Bruit of the Turk's coming continues. Ask what to do if required to give a copy of the articles signed by Henry or to repeat them. Brussellz, the last day of February. Signed.
