R. O. Received the enclosed letters this Friday at the time of high mass by a lad of Robert Folkard, the post at Thetford, who received them from the post of Newmerkett "unclosed as they now be ; to the witness whereof he called iij. of his honest neighbours, and the same post of Newmerkett made answer that he received them likewise."

R. O. Learn this morning from Sir Robert Bowes, warden of the Middle Marches, the death of Sir Cuthbert Ratclif, who was constable of Alnewike castle and learned steward of all the King's lands in Northumberland which were the late Earl of Northumberland's. The constableship includes the leading of the men of the lordship and was ever thought convenient for the Warden of the Middle Marches; and so was given to Sir Cuthbert when he was warden. Sir Robert Bowes, having no patrimony in that country, desires the said offices, so as to be more able to serve in the office of wardenry; and the writers think that thus "the same should be well employed."

R. O. Wrote to the King of their doings yesterday and have talked of the same matters today. Beg him to signify to the King that today communication was first of a mariner of these parts, who, being hired to carry malt to Bulloyn, sold a portion of it in Zeland, and then of Mr. Forman and Marten Calley, whose case had now lasted seven or eight years; and the writers set forth the delay of the King's subjects, both here and in Spain, and the clamour for quick despatch of matters of the Emperor's subjects in England, and the ill usage of the King's subjects in Spain. All this they did very gently, by way of complaint, not forgetting these letters of reprisal in Spain, &c. Chapuis said that, upon yesterday's talk, he had written to the Emperor of those letters, which he would not call reprisals, and signified his opinion against granting such process without a previous request of justice; he thought that the Prince of Spain had been moved to grant them because Renegar was not punished and still retained the goods, who was known before to be but a poor man, and the Emperor's subjects were so handled upon the seas that they dare not continue their traffic. The writers answered that by this reprisal one man was troubled for another's act, contrary to the treaty; Renegar was treated in England like any other merchantman, having used no guile nor fraud in his doings. "Well," said Chapuis, "I warrant you, let those things be restored again, and all your things in Spayn shall be released; and I have also written yesterday to the Emperor that I thought the cause that we went no further forwards in those private causes was because the King s Majesty and his Council was much busied in matters of war at home." Replied that they took the matter of Burgos as answered, in that of Jasper Duch answer was expected, and as for the jewels sentence was given in England. The Emperor's people said that that sentence was "too ill to be called a sentence," and talked much of the necessity of the old amity and redress of occasions to the contrary; and the writers reminded them that there must be equality of redress and a friendly understanding, so that one man's lewd act should not be set forth as a thing done by the King's commandment. They suggested that men's goods should be delivered "upon caution" when taken; and Chapuys asked that the writings herewith might be sent to the lord Privy Seal, who knew of the matter, and that Mr. Mylles of Hampton might be examined therein. They promised that Mr. Forman's matter should be ended without delay; mary, it may not be called to the Diet because depending in the court of Brabant, "from whence the Emperor can call no matter, as they say. We told them that if the Brabantiers would not answer here for any matter, we thought by the same reason no Englishman should answer any of their complaints here." Burbarough, 26 June. Signed: Tho.

26 June. 1045. Vaughan to Thirlby and Petre.
R. O. Has nothing to write, as the world is so still. Lately saw letters written to Jasper Dowche from Lyons in which certain merchants of Florence desired a finance for the French king of 400,000 cr. They offered 5 per cent, for the mart, which is for the year 20 per cent., and to bind Paris, Lyons and another French town for the payment, but are not likely to be sped. Hears of miserable want of victuals throughout Picardy, Normandy and Brytayn, besides the country that the Emperor wasted. The foreign soldiers are weary and the French King's own subjects in despair. Thinks it likely that the Scots, losing hope of aid from France, will yield. The High Dutch swear "by Godtz maght and craght that zer ist geyn ander conynk dan der coenynk van Enghelland." Hopes that God will subdue the King's enemies "by other means than we look for." Frenchmen everywhere are "violently drawn to enter either by land or sea against us, so much they fear to meet with us." Andwerp, 26 June.
Here is a foolish muttering that the Emperor has written to his ambassador in England that unless the Spaniards are satisfied our merchants shall be arrested again. Pray commend me to Mr. Caern and Mr. Chamberlayn.

26 June. 1046. Wotton to Paget.
R. O.
St. P., x. 487.
Since the departure of Nicholas the Courier, has written twice by the ordinary "staffette" who goes weekly to Andwerpe, and, now last, by a merchant Spaniard who left the day after Paget's last letter came. The Emperor, who at first was earnest to induce the Protestants to his requests, does not now press them; and Count Palatine Frederic has undertaken to mediate between him and the Catholics and the Evangelics, who seven or eight days ago presented their mind in writing. Cannot yet learn whether the Count meddles therein of himself, or at the request of the Protestants or the Emperor, to whom this would give a pretext to await truce with the Turk, an answer from Rome, the "success of our affairs with our enemies" or whatever else it is that he looks for. The bps. of Mentz and Tryer, whom the Catholics will doubtless follow, have said that they have already submitted to the Emperor and General Council of Trent, and it would not be convenient that any inferior should meddle therein; so that it is not apparent what good the Palatine can do. The Protestants must have referred to their masters before delivering this writing to the Palatine; and therefore the Protestants' commissaries here must have known of this mediation a good while ago, and yet they seem not to have made Mr. Bucler and Mr. Monte privy to it; "yea, and bear men in hand that they are expressly commanded that they shall show nobody what they have put up to the Palatine." Received Paget's letter by Ludovicus Montius, who will address his to Antonio Bruschetto and send them to Giovanne Thomaso Crivello, who ever follows this Court (and is factor to John Carle who was with Paget in Andwarpe), with a request that they may be given to Wotton to forward. Montius departed on Monday, 22nd inst., and delivered the letters to Bruschetto sent herewith. He said, at his departure, that John Baptista Castaldo told him that El Secco, who (as Wotton wrote) goes by Hungary to the Turk, had of the Emperor 10,000 ducats and left Vienna on the 8th inst. with four wagons covered with silk. "These Italians" learn from Venice and Rome that one of Polyn's men has brought to Venice the Turk's safeconduct for the ambassadors of the Emperor and French king to come to him, and that the Turk, Sultana and Porta are returned to Constantinople and their army dismissed, save 25 galleys, galleots and foists that go to Rhodes or Argiere. Both about the Turk and at Venice it is taken as certain that the truce will be made. One letter stated that the Turk would agree to it only if the Emperor will deliver Milan to the French king; other letters said that he agreed the more easily thereto because, intending to make a son of his (by his second wife) king of Hungary, he would fortify that which he has already taken there. Here are some captains commanded to attend the Emperor and king of Romans. Some say that the Emperor will have 3,000 men to attend upon him, others that he sends an army to Argiers. Men begin to say that he will go hence to Metz; if so, it may be to see to affairs of Lorayne. On Midsummer Day the Nuncio was in strait council with the Emperor, and, albeit the Cardinal of Austburgh and others from the bishop of Rome were present, the Emperor and Nuncio twice or thrice went into an inner chamber to consult apart. The Frenchmen have made a new victory of the old skirmish at Murehowse, and show a bill (herewith) of the names of many lords, knights and captains killed. This court and town are full of this news, as of a thing done very lately; but Wotton declares how it was done and trusts that this French vainglory will be ridiculed. Was perplexed until he saw the bill; but, seeing there the names of Sir Ralph Ewers, Sir Brian Lay ton and lord Ogell, perceived that God had raised them from death again to show that He is still able to work a miracle, and that they, seeking revenge for their handling by the Scots at Murehowse, were again slain. If it please God "to revive Le Grant Londrois (fn. n1) again, I warrant you he will not be so mad to go any more to such pastimes pour son plaisir." It is bruited that great part of the French navy coming from Marseilles is drowned in a tempest, and amongst others Petro Strozza. It is pity that his fellow Polyn did not keep him company. "I pray God that these may be the best news that the bishop of Rome shall hear any day these three years; for longer I trust he will not live." The Duke of Lorayne has made the Emperor tutor of his children. But for his vain hope for Mylan and thirst to recover Boleyn, the French king might attempt somewhat upon Barre and Lorayne. The Prince of Piedmont is fallen sick by the way. Landenbergh's men laid wait for me the morrow after Ascension Day, betwixt Metz and Oppenham, and still have an eye upon me, so that I dare not ride out of the gate. Any of the King's ministers or subjects that can pay money will be in danger here; and if one be taken neither Emperor, King nor Princes can help the matter until his takers have that they demand. Mons. de la Roche, the president of Rone and another have arrived as ambassadors, out of France. Knows not whether they come from the French king or the King of Navarre; but one of them is the King of Navarre's secretary. Wormes, 26 June 1545. Signed.

Continually solicit the ambassadors of the Protestants for their masters' answer touching the matters in treaty. This day the said ambassadors certify that they look shortly to have answer to certain articles sent to their masters' chief confederates. The Landyrave sent his resolute mind and commission a fortnight past to go through, and labours the chief states of that confederacy (as his ambassador affirms) to further that purpose. His commissaries here showed a letter of his, of the 15th inst., to learn whether the men gathered by Peter of Gelders about the river of Albis were for Henry; that, if so, he and the duke of Lunenburgh might be instructed thereof, for otherwise they would not suffer men of war to be levied or conducted that way, lest they should be employed against themselves. Mentioned this in last letters, and also that they had caused Lnnenburgh's ambassadors to write to his master that they were for Henry.
Dr. Viglius, of the Emperor's Council, is sent to entreat the duke of Baviere to take Ferdinando's second daughter for his son, instead of the eldest, as promised, in order that Orleans may have the eldest. Another French ambassador arrrived four days past, and also an ambassador from the king of Polonia, to the States of the Empire. What end this Diet will take is still uncertain. Wormbs, 26 June.

"We be continuallie cryed appon of the Landgrave that he might have knowlege, when, and what, men be made in any dominion of his or his frendes," and by his chancellor required this day to mention it in our next letters, that they may be despatched from such impediments as without his master's help they are likely to have.

27 June. 1050. Wool Packing.
Soc. of Ant.
Procl., ii. 153.
Mandate to the sheriff of Lincoln to make proclamation that no person shall undertake to wind or fold wool within the county of Lincoln without first taking oath before two justices of the peace (one of whom shall be of the quorum) or else before the mayor of the Staple of Westminster to wind or fold truly, "without leaving or putting within any fleece or fleeces any manner of clockettes, lockes, handershankes, tailes, pessellys, washlockes, stones, sand, dust or any wool of worse nature or growing than the same fleece is" or any other filth which may impair the fleece or make it weightier; upon pain of ten days' imprisonment and then to be set on the pillory in the next market town "with a fleece of wool hanging about his neck." And no grower, breeder, brogger or gatherer of wool shall employ winders not authorised as above.
The preamble states that the Act of 27 Edw. III. ordaining that all wool packers and winders should take oath before the mayor and constables of the staple of Westminster has of late been set at nought by tailors, weavers, cordwainers, barbers, husbandmen and other artificers taking upon themselves to wind wool, and, by procurement of owners and breeders, putting in "sand, stone, dust, pitch, tar, clay, iron, lead, double marks, shurlockes, dung, lambswool and other 'deceavable' things."

27 June. 1051. Norfolk to Paget.
R. O. Thanks for the news in your letters which I received, this night past, opened, as appears by my steward's letter herewith. "Some of the posts have played the false knave by the way. Letters sealed without a label through them is easy to be opened." Since coming from my house on Monday last I have ridden all along the sea coasts of Norfolk and Suffolk and ordered the beacons according to my instructions. All men are well minded to resist a landing in these parts saying "My lord, if they come, for God's sake bring us between the sea and them, that we may fight with them ere they get their ships again." The men of the coasts are all mariners and either gone to sea to serve the King or else into Iselond; but I see no danger of an army royal landing except at Yarmouthe, the only safe harbour for their ships. At my other being there I devised bulwarks and platforms for ordnance and ramparts; in making which the inhabitants have been wonderfully diligent, and their rampart within the town is now half a mile long, as high in places as the vamewre and so broad that carts go upon it. If the enemies give them a month or six weeks more the town will not be lost before I shall be with them. Begs that the bailiffs and inhabitants may have some letter of thanks for what they have done. So much work done at Calice, Guysnes, Boleyne, Barwyck or Carlisle would have cost the King above 1,000 mks. Trusts that, notwithstanding the late coming of the commissions for the anticipation, the money will be levied soon after the appointed day. Has now perused all the coasts, and on Monday night will be at Norwich to meet the gentlemen of Norfolk. Today a good number of Suffolk will be with him at his castle of Framlingham.

Send letters from Wharton to Hertford, and others from Maxwell to the King. Albeit little fruit is likely to ensue of Maxwell's doings, his remaining at Carlisle may serve to increase the suspicion between the parties of the Governor and Cardinal and of Anguishe and also may some what stay his friends; who, if he returned into the South, would lose all hope of his relief, and then the factions of the Governor and Anguishe might unite. After this convention now held at Sterling, if no effect follows of his proceedings, Hertford will send him up, and begs to know where to send him if the King and Council are not then about London.

He will think these letters, which they are commanded to write, scarcely worth thanks; but they are glad to have a messenger by whom to thank him for his letters and news. Have received at their Diet as much meat as he at his, with "good householde wardes before dinner to quicken our appetites." On either side have been given in articles general and particular, the one containing injuries pretended to be done to all merchants, the other touching particular persons. Cannot yet write the answers made, but mean to send him a copy of all. The other side "wreste and glose the treaties as they list;" and, although the agreement at Bruxelles was general, they say (by command of the Emperor and Regent) that it is limited from the time of the arrest in Flanders, or at the most from the last treaty, and so refuse to hear matters done earlier when, during the wars between the Emperor and France, our merchants suffered much and seldom got justice, especially in Spain, many of them being undone in following their suits, whereas Spaniards must be heard forthwith and that by the Privy Council and cry out as though all treaties were broken. They complain much of four matters:—1. That of Jasper Duche, in which we can scarce yet get them to declare what portion of the goods belonged to Jasper. 2. The matter of Burg[is], wherein it seems plain that the goods claimed for the men of Burgis belonged to the French king's subjects; and, at the suit of those who laded them, all our merchants (about 60) were arrested in France, and their goods to the value of above 12,000l. taken for satisfaction of the said persons, as we prove by depositions and the copy of a process then made in France, when they were called the French king's subjects (as indeed they have been used during the wars, and two of them still dwell, married, at Rowan). 3. The matter of certain jewels confiscated by judgment in the Exchequer; for although they will not call to this Diet things depending in their courts, they would not be denied this which was settled in England almost four years past. 4. A matter concerning Antinorie and Carolo, Italians now in Antwarpe, for wares taken from Frenchmen who had previously taken them from the said Italians, whom they would account the Emperor's subjects because dwelling in Antwerp, although Spaniards dwelling in France may in no wise be called French subjects. This last matter was only lately proponed and has not yet been much spoken of.
It seems not amiss, on the Emperor's speaking of our being here, that you should open some of these things to him, which may be otherwise reported. We send copy of our letters lately sent to the King. "And these serve you for one course. I would we might course so as all things might be well ended. We have heard in times past that the diet once taken hath cured great diseases, and now we think that two diets be well taken if they bring not in more diseases than were before." Commendations to Mr. Buckler and Mr. Mounte, "and by the next we will be our own messengers.' Burborough, 27 June.

R. O. By their letters to the King he will see what talk they have had with Chapuys and "may gather what the fox meaneth." He said that the Emperor lost much by this peace with France and might have had as good conditions if he had been prisoner, for he gave up Burgundie and Myllan, but would rather do so than continue the wars, to the undoing of Christendom, especially as he obtained his object, the breaking of the league with the Turk; and why should not the King, likewise, for the unity of Christendom, forego Bolloyn now that he had the honor and victory both by land and sea? Replied that the French king "would make often confederacies with the Turk if for the leaving thereof he may be so hired," and it was vain to talk of leaving Bolloyn. Answer is come from Roan touching the matter of Burgos, but the writers know not yet what it is. As to the jewels Chapuys said that, if in England, he would sue to the King "for some licence for a relief of the infants." Had a long and friendly talk, in which Chapuys protested his desire to serve the King. He again moved that the Spaniards might have their goods under caution. Beg to know the King's pleasure touching Jasper Duche and the jewels, and whether the King would grant any licence; also what to answer in the matter of John Carlo and Antinory. Have not spoken of going to Cales; for Chapuys would at once say (as he did at Graveling) "that it is done because he shall not be there". It will be thought to be done for delay and to seek occasion of breaking up; and now upon the rumored approach of the French and sending of soldiers thither it will never be assented to. As the King remits it to their discretion, the writers think best to stay therein till further instructions. Burbarough, 28 June. Signed.

St. P., A. 491.
By his last, of the 7th inst., signified the arrival of the Emperor's secretary Girardo, who departed with Moluco, the French orator, the 23rd inst., as ambassadors to the Turk. Truce between the said Princes and the Turk is thought to be concluded already for five years. These proceedings are greatly to be suspected by other Christian princes and the more considering how earnestly the Emperor takes "the Bishop's" part. Cardinal Fernesye returned to Rome well satisfied, and declared in Consistory that the Emperor gave the Bishop liberty to do as he pleased concerning the Council, promising to take arms against such Protestants as refused to come to Trent. A post was thereupon despatched to the three legates in Trent to begin the Council without delay; which post goes on to the Emperor with the Bishop's promise to spend all the goods of himself and the whole clergy in this cause. The above is written from Rome, but many give it no credit, thinking that affairs between the Emperor and Bishop pass secretly and that the Bishop labours to give Parma and Plaisance to his nephew Signor Octavio by the Emperor's consent, for the chief care of this ambitious bishop is to make his house great. Instead of 4,000 men against England the Bishop will give 16,000 cr. a month to the French king, who refuses the service of Italians, lest they should pass over to England. Is continually visited by captains of reputation offering service, as lately by the Signor Hercule Visconte, of Milan, who served the French king about 15 years and sends a letter (herewith) to Sir John Wallop, his old acquaintance. The Marquis of Guasto is gone to the Emperor with 300 horse, and Don Ferrante Gonzaga shall depart to the Emperor shortly. The Bishop lately made hot practices to this Signory to remove Ludovico de Larme as a dangerous man and servant of the king of England; but the Signory answered that their city was open to all and the King in good amity with them. These jealous people are not pleased to see bands of captains in their city, as lately in Vincentia the rectors commanded Philipo Pini to depart with all his men; who, at Harvel's suit, was revoked and lay at Padua, but the rectors there will have none of his captains tarry with him. The Bishop has got knowledge of the practices of Signor Lois Gonzaga, and fears that the King will procure him displeasure in Italy. Venice, 28 June 1545.

As instructed by the Council, have talked again with Chapuys touching the things whereof they wrote on the 18th inst.; but could get no further explanation why he asked "what hurt were it if your Majesty did subscribe to the treaty with France?" When the writers said that they had never seen that treaty, he said that if he had it they should see it; and he hinted that two French cardinals had moved the Emperor for a straiter amity with France, because Henry, although named as a principal contrahent in his late agreement with France, had not allowed it. The subscription would, he said, stop such objections and also take away suspicions arising by the taking of the Emperor's subjects and forbearing of English traffic into Spain and these countries. Reminded him that they had already stated reasons which discouraged the English from resorting to these countries; and set forth their ill handling in Spain, where shameful "exceptions" touching the King's dignity were admitted in public processes, and where there was a new arrest of his subjects. Chapuys said that he liked not the general stay and grant of reprisals in Spain, and had written and would write again to the Emperor therein; and he also seemed offended at "those exceptions." Spoke roundly of the strangeness of taking every light complaint for truth and every man's private act for a breach of the treaty. Chapuys said little, but wished that all occasions of pique were taken away; only three of the matters here were great, but there should be a stay made in the others also, for Judas non dormit; he had written to the Emperor not to credit every Spaniard's complaint and why fewer English merchants came hither, and he would do his best to conserve the amity in which he was a minister. Finally, as they were departing he called them again, and said that if they knew anything that the King would have the Emperor do, or any means to restore a good peace he would do his best therein. In his talk of a peace he said that the Emperor had written to him to devise therein, and he wished that the Emperor had some good occasion to travail therein. Told him that Henry entered the wars for God's sake, the benefit of Christendom and love to the Emperor, and would always listen to honorable conditions of peace. He said that in such weighty matters the Emperor's meddling might be resented, the one side would keep Boulloyn and the other would have it; and the Dolphin would be more earnest to have it than his father, for his wife descends from the earls of Bulloyn and gives their arms. Answered that though the wars should last these 20 years Bulloyn would not be given up. Took occasion, in communing of the Emperor and of the Diet, to declare the cause of Mr. Mownt's being there. Chapuys only said that it was well to have intelligence from all places, and commended the man, whom he knew to be witty. Burborough, 29 June 1545. Signed.

R. O. We have written to Mr. Wotton, by Francisco, a short remembrance of our doings here, and sent him copies of three of our letters to the King; and are now making copies for him of the whole articles and answers of both sides. The letter herewith has just been delivered to my lord of Westminster from Mr. Vaughan. Thanks for writing to my wife, though she seems scarcely to credit your report touching my coming home. As for my suit, Mr. Chancellor of the Augmentations writes to me that the master of the Horse has spoken to him in favour of Lord Laware. If you help me not it will be to my rebuke,—this journey in Hampshire will give you occasion to speak with Lord Laware. I have written to Mr. Chancellor that, rather than fail, I would give him 100l. If you will remind my lord Chancellor also of it, doubtless, "through your good means the thing may be well ended." Burbarough, 29 June.

Today Westminster and Petre came to visit him and he reminded them how necessary it was to redress the injuries of the Emperor's subjects. They showed two letters stating that wine belonging to merchants of Lille had been restored. A ship belonging to Quintana de Done, merchant of Burgos, is also restored, against security, and he hopes to recover his principal ship on similar conditions. There seems, therefore, a chance of remedy without resorting to the counter arrest. The difficulty lies with the Burgos ships seized before the war, in which matter the English got the merchants themselves to testify that they had been indemnified out of English goods seized at Rouen; but authentic documents now obtained from Rouen disprove this.
Westminster and Petre said that Paget wrote that the King was pleased with Chapuys' recent conversation with them, and surprised that the Emperor's ambassador had not spoken of peace or truce. Replied that probably the Emperor awaited a favourable opportunity, without which his intervention would only result in a slight to his own dignity, and doubtless his ministers in France lost no chance of influencing the King of France; now was the opportunity, could they suggest anything, or was it too late? They answered that their wit did not reach so far as to understand the means, and Chapuys knew their master's temper as well as they. Replied that before leaving England he had suggested to the Chancellor and Suffolk the keeping of Boulogne by a third party; but they only asked who the third party could be and he did not think proper to mention the Emperor. No answer was given, and Petre changed the conversation, saying that Paget did not understand why Chapuys stated that the King ought to ratify the Emperor's peace with France. Replied that, admitting that it was made with the King's consent, such ratification was necessary that the King might avail himself of the reservation in his favour therein stipulated, and also of the reference of his claims to the Emperor's arbitration, besides stopping the French from urging that as the King failed to confirm it the Emperor was nowise bound to him. Reverting to the main point, they said that their master, although likely to prevail against the French, would not refuse an honorable peace, but he would not have the restitution of Boulogne even mentioned. Reminded them that ever since the King's predecessors conquered Calais they had had their hands full in holding it; no doubt Boulogne would be a great advantage to England if it could be held peaceably, but it was to be feared that the French would make it only a costly burden. Made it clear that this and other conversation was unofficial and that he wished neither to persuade nor dissuade them about Boulogne; and he gathered from their words and demeanour that the King might surrender Boulogne for reasonable compensation, if the request came from the Emperor and his vanity was flattered by his being represented as condescending to peace for the sake of Christendom. To bring in the subject of the King's resources, mentioned that the French hoped that the King was short of money since he raised a loan at Antwerp at so high interest at the beginning of the war, and before leaving London compelled the citizens to buy revenues of his which exceeded not 100,000 ducats; but he (Chapuys) thought that the King had as good an excuse for borrowing as the French had when at the time of the Emperor's election they borrowed vast sums, of Florentines and other merchants at Lyons, and of the Swiss, to keep the money, as they alleged, from the Fucars and other German companies and attach the Swiss to their interest. Westminster and Petre, however, would not be drawn, but changed the conversation by begging Chapuys to use his influence that the ambassador in England might resume the talk about peace or truce. They repeated their complaint that the English in Spain were excluded from the tribunals as heretics, and even their King vilified by that title. As De Roeulx had sent information of Madame d'Etampes secretary being at Boulogne and the Cardinal of Medon expected there, Chapuys said that he had hoped they brought news upon which he might congratulate them that a personage had come from France to Boulogne to treat for peace. They protested that they had heard nothing about it. Bourbourg, 29 June 1545.

29 June. 1067. Vaughan to the Council.
R. O. A man of these countries who serves the King's merchants here in "ploying and folding of linen cloths called Gentishe cloths" told Vaughan that, having received an oath of the merchants, and having his living by them, he felt bound to discover a practise against the King, and said that certain captains whom he knew not gathered men in Andwerp and other towns hereabouts to go against Hams beside Guysnes which, by treason of a drum who has wages there, should be yielded to the Frenchmen. He could not tell the drum's name. Certain of the companions taken up for this journey had moved him to accompany them, and said that within four hours of their coming the castle should be theirs. The drum writes letters out of the castle of Hams. The "ployer" was not drunken and seemed to mean good faith. Wrote before of a Spaniard, a man of war, who, seeking some reward, showed that the French king practised with the Italians and Spaniards serving in Bulleyn, Guysnes, Calles and Hams to betray them, saying that he knew this of a Frenchman who lay here as a spy, to "proll out knowledges of the King's Majesty's merchants here." Has signified this ployer's report to the lord Deputy of Calles, that lord Graye may be warned; for the enterprise is to be within these four or five days.
P.S.—Has received a letter from Paget signifying that the Council wished to hear more of Bragamont, the Spaniard above mentioned, mistrusting him to be a false practiser. Had a like opinion of him, who returned yesterday and asked whether Vaughan had heard more of the matter he discovered, swearing that it was true and that the Lorener acquainted himself with English merchants to learn what was done in England, and practised with merchants and other English men to know the state of Bulleyn, Guysnes, Hams, Calles and the English Pale. The world is so full of practices that his signifying them may be imputed lightness; but he had rather be blamed as a light person than a negligent. Andwerp, 29 June.
P.S.—Another man tells him that certain soldiers taken up in this town to serve the King's Majesty should go to Hams castle, which "should be betrayed by an Englishman at their coming thither."
P.S. (on a detached slip).—I have received your letter by Francis the post, partly answering my letter to you by my servant, and will do all things accordingly. Andwerp, 29 June.

R. O. Here goes a bruit that the Albanois, Italians and Spaniards who served in the North are gone into Scotland to serve the French king. Is informed that the French king has spies here who enquire of the English merchants what order and what number of ships and other provisions there is in England, and seek to corrupt strangers coming to the King's service. In short, he leaves nothing undone to hinder the King's enterprises and corrupt strangers in Bulleyn, Guysnes and other places. "I cannot certainly learn that he hath any great navy in France, although he hath put forth a bruit of a wonderful thing. If he may bring anything to pass by treason he will never work greatly further." Andwerp, 29 June.

Since he wrote on the 15th from Argentan, thirty Flemish hulks sailing from Rochelle towards Normandy with the French fleet joined that fleet upon the approach of a great English fleet, which thereupon retired. The King says that these hulks saved his fleet, and has thanked the Emperor for their attitude. Of three French galleys sent from Boulogne to Etaples two were driven by weather into Dunkirk and the third foundered off Boulogne together with a ship which went to help her. Mixed with copper and other metal, 10,000 cr. have been here forged into 150,000 cr. and delivered to Captain de L'Orge to pay his men at arms in Scotland, whither he has started by the Irish route, the English waiting for him in the straits of Calais. French mariners are ordered to treat the Emperor's subjects at sea as friends. The King's final determination is to hold the sea and prevent victualling of Calais and Boulogne, attack England from Scotland, build two forts on the shore at Boulogne and sink six vessels laden with stone in the harbour mouth there. Encloses a design of the forts. The French revictualled Ardres without resistance from the English, most of whom had gone to England. Captain Dampierre, governor of Ardres, has lost many men in a skirmish near Guisnes. Paulin, by the King's orders, dispersed a number of Lutherans about Avignon and burnt some; but the sect grows daily, most of them being women. In deference to the King, the Emperor has consented to Scots trading in the Netherlands under safeconduct, but he refused to include them in the treaty of peace. The King also tried hard to get the Count of Mirandola included, but the Emperor insisted that the Count must surrender to justice. Count William is to be free within Paris, and shall be safely escorted out of the realm when the Emperor places at ransom the Prince of Roche sur Yonne, for whom Don Francisco is being asked to take 15,000 cr. The King sends 6,000 lansquenets to join 6,000 French infantry and 4,000 horse in the siege of Boulogne under the Dauphin. The Council of Trent. Tithes in France. M. Hannebault, Admiral and Marshal of France, commands the fleet against the English. Peter Strozzi, coming from Marseilles, captured three English ships which were becalmed.

Cardinal Ferrara is arrived, through whose efforts the Venetians and Genoese lent the King several vessels. After viewing the embarcation of his troops the King will go to Abbeville with the arrière ban, which serves without pay; for the gendarmerie are fifteen months behind in their wages. Mons. de Grignan at Worms. Hesdin. Decrees are published that all English property and all ships wholly or partially laden with English goods, with all the persons and goods therein, shall be confiscated to the King's use.

Merchants of this realm, of Waterford, Galway and elsewhere, complain that their ships and goods are arrested in Andolozia and other places of Spain; and desire licence to arrest ships of the Emperor's subjects of Spain and Flanders and a merchant of Jenewey here. Think this reasonable, but defer to do it without command and have despatched bearer in post for this cause. "For lack of advertisements of occurrents out of England we be many times to seek in such affairs as occurreth here." Last Thursday (fn. n2) 70 ships, divers of them great ships, arrived on this coast and "hoved" here two days. To some whose small boats they took they said that they had left their men in Scotland. Only one of them came nigh the shore, near the Head of Huthe, and she was shot through the sail with a piece of the King's ordnance there. They departed southward along this coast.

Is therefore compelled to give the more credit to Bragamont's overture (although Paget holds him for a false knave) and now writes to the Council what he has done therein. Received from Burborow the letter Paget sent by Francis the post, and perceives thereby that his servant was arrived. It is answered in his said letter to the Council. "Men here mutter much lest this Diet holden at Burborow will not end well. It were hard to think or find the contrary where Chepuys leadeth the dance." By a letter now sent herewith to the Council, writes the answer of Martin Lopez and Fernando de Aza touching their alum.

"Item, to declare the state of the town and castle," and what fortifications are in hand.
Berwick castle:—Mr. Sturley and Audeley are placed there with victuals for 200 men for a month and sufficient gunners, &c. As the rampart to the townward takes a great part of the room of the castle, my lord (fn. n3) has made another floor to the chapel "which shall be always a sufficient storehouse to keep the victuals and provisions for the said house."
Berwick town:—Is sufficiently furnished with munitions and lacks only men and victuals. My lord (fn. n3) has men ready to be put into it upon warning; but wheat and malt must be sent from the South, for here is none to be had. My lord has made a "mount" upon a "groyn," so that it flanks the outsides of the walls on the one side, and has appointed a "cazzamata" to be made without Our Lady Gate, which will scour the dikes both ways, and, that finished, the town will be guarded by 1,000 fewer men, the cost being not past 30l. The tower of the gate "shall be taken lower." Item, the order taken for soldiers and officers and for keeping watch at the gate.

viii. No. 179.
Details how, going to Flanders last July to join the Emperor's army, he went to the Duke of Alburquerque before Boulogne; and, through a gentleman of the King of England's chamber named Henry Knyvett, who acted as interpreter between the King and the Duke, was appointed man at arms with 20 ducats a month, and afterwards accompanied the Duke and Knyvett into England. The Duke advised him not to enter the King's household, as Spaniards were not well treated in England and if he died there was no one to confess him, but rather to ask for a pension, to serve the King in Spain or elsewhere abroad. Knyvett suggested that he might get this on condition that he should assist any English ambassador who might come to Spain, and meanwhile should write regularly of occurrents in the court there; but the King did not approve the suggestion, and only gave him a present of 60 ducats for what he had done. He had already received 40, so that he was not really paid for the full time of his service. He then obtained passport and came to Flanders, but could not speak with the Emperor, who was ill with gout. Then, going homewards through France, he stayed 15 days at Fontainebleau with Don Pedro Guzman, whom some call Don Pedro de Noche, who, through the Admiral and Duke of Orleans, obtained him promise of a captain's commission to raise infantry; but through the King's illness the matter dragged, and eventually he came on homewards. Describes his further proceedings in Spain both before and after his arrest, to prove that he made no attempt to raise soldiers for France.
