26 Dec. 1037. Henry VIII. to Paget. (fn. n1)

St. P., x. 806.
Rymer, xv. 82.
Perceives by his letters of the 22nd inst. his discourse with Brewno on the previous day, and the order which he will observe in proponing a truce. To the articles or capitulations which he sent the King has added certain points of importance, and remits it to be passed thus; although, to satisfy the French ambassadors, the wording may be altered so long as the sense remains. He must travail earnestly to have the truce concluded without comprehension of the Scots. Has never made a treaty of truce in which any other prince was comprehended; and the ambassadors, both French and Protestant, must be told that by his treaties with the Emperor the King may not comprehend the Scots in either truce or peace. (fn. n2) Cannot give notice to all his subjects before 1 March, and therefore thinks the time appointed in Paget's former instruction very meet for the commencement of the truce; but, if they much desire to have it begin sooner, they are to be told that, although the King will do his best to publish it, any infringement must be ascribed to their own hasty abridging of the time. The end of it must be 31 Oct. according to the former instruction. Thirdly, unless the French king shows greater conformity than hitherto, it does not seem meet to trouble the Protestants with a further meeting on 1 May; but, if he relent in his obstinacy and come on more roundly to reasonable conditions of peace, Henry would be glad to use the mediation of the Protestants, who may be assured that he reposes more confidence in them than the French king does, whatsoever he pretend. Fourthly, he shall earnestly procure Brewno to serve for a pension of 500 or 600 cr., and deliver one year's pension in hand, out of the treasure remaining with the treasurer of Callys, or that is brought from Thomas Chamberlayn, taking his (Brewno's) oath or promise in writing to do service, and delivering him a cipher wherein to advertise the state of things in Almayn. Finally if in the end of this long conference the French commissioners will neither come to peace nor truce, but break off, immediate notice must be given to the ambassadors with the Emperor, and to the officers at Bulloyn, Guysnes and Callys. Hampton Court, 26 Dec., 37 Hen. VIII.

26 Dec. 1038. The Privy Council to Gardiner, Thirlby and Carne.
R. O. The King having seen your two packets, of the 19th and 21st inst., and the memorials and annotations therewith, giving a good account of the long time since any other letters received from you, and considering that the articles sent by you vary from those which he lately sent only in the number of invaders and touching the 24th article, is pleased to pass the "esclarisshment" as in the articles herewith, which are the same as those last delivered by the Emperor's Council save in two or three points (noted in the margin). If they will by no means consent to these, you shall conclude with them as in the articles last delivered by them, making expedition therein and using dexterity in requiring the aid which they ought to have given last year, and to get the article for the bands of the cities and states and the article for the entry of enemies by "the other's countries." The marriage is to be passed over in silence unless spoken of by them.
After conclusion of this "esclarisshment," if there appear likelihood of the Admiral of France coming thither, Gardiner shall devise some pretence for remaining there, the better to learn their proceedings; and before the Admiral's arrival, as soon as his coming is certain, Gardiner shall, as of himself, propone eftsoons to Skepperus or other the overture for marriage between the Prince of Spain and Lady Elizabeth, dissuading the bestowing of that Prince upon the daughter of France, for "the deformity of the person" and other considerations.
The French commisioners (of whose doings at Ardre they will be otherwise informed), after many devices, have finally proponed an overture for truce with comprehension of the Scots; but, considering his treaty with the Emperor, the King will not assent to the comprehension of the Scots, so that that meeting is like to have small effect.

The French commissioners say that they have as yet no answer to their last letters, which was promised on Tuesday last. (fn. n3) The Protestants muse thereat; but Paget, knowing that Friar Gouseman (who was lately in France with an overture) is gone back to the Emperor, doubts not but that the French king awaits the issue of Gouseman's practice. Told the Protestants that he had no commission as to a truce, but would write therein, and thought that if the King did anything it would only be out of regard to their masters. Dare wager that if the French king have any good answer from the Emperor he will give a je faile both to us and the Protestants, and revoke his commissioners sans dire adieu; which would offend the Protestants, although they are in haste to get to their Diet at Francforde. If the French would break off without peace, Sturmius should be amused with some blind overture to make them tarry, and, meanwhile, the Emperor's ambassador in England and my lord of Winchester should be written to "that if we would agree to an interview now this spring with the French king and certain of the Princes Protestant, and make a league defensive and offensive, the Frenchmen would agree to what we would," and the French commissioners here have appointed another assembly to talk more largely therein, but the King, misliking such proceedings, had revoked us home. Then the French commissioners should be told, an hour before we take ship, that the King has sent for us. That which is told to the ambassador in England and, by Winchester, to Skipper at the Emperor's Court, should be told in the utmost secrecy and incidentally among other discourse. The Protestants here may be satisfied by being told that when princes in hostility break off communication it is usual to break off thus. Sudden breaking nowadays is most commended and best serves the breaker. Was not I suddenly called out of France? Did not the Cardinal and Raymond last year tell us at 9 o'clock that they would depart, and, thereupon, go away at one? Did the Admiral, Chancellor and Secretary of France meet oftener with the King's commissaries than once? Wishes this to be declared to the King, Upon your answer to my last letters, we will enter the treaty of truce; praying you to answer this and tell us, if the Frenchmen depart, whether to devise to bring them in colloquium again before they go, or, if they refuse, depart before them. The Protestants ought to find no fault with us, knowing that the French will needs depart; for I understand that we wo[uld] keep our preudhomie with the Protes[tants].
When Dymocke was at Hamboroughe, before Reiffenberghe played traitor, he wrote commending one Coronel Curtpenynk, who offered to come into England and is now come hither on his way. He has always been a coronel of footmen to the King of Denmark, and dwells in Hamboroughe, and is a man meet to have the leading of 3,000 or 4,000 footmen,—a number which is sufficient and may come overland by stealth or else come by sea from Hamboroughe. Cannot tell, after Reiffenberghe's treason, whether, if the wars continue, Almayns will be used. Pray advertise the King's pleasure as to Curtpenynk; and how, if turned back, he is to be rid. He is a notable man and dwells in Hamborough, where the King's merchants traffic. Also if the King intend not to use the Duke of Loemburghe and Count of Tecklenburghe, letters of thanks should be written them, stating that they will not be required for this year; else they will come in person in March. Can get the letter to the Count conveyed surely by the Landgrave's marshal, and the other to the Duke may be sent by way of Hamboroughe.
Undoubtedly the Frenchmen prepare all their power against the beginning of March, and are even now assembling Almayns. The galleys which were said to be departed from Rowen for the sea do indeed "avale" down with all the rest of their navy to be rigged and put ready. Calais, 26 Dec. 1545. Signed.

R. O. After the des patch of my other letters, "my servant also being gone to lie without the walls, for passage," Sturmius brought me word that the French king would not accept our conditions for peace, "adding therewithal that the King's Majesty should not cause him to leave ne latum quidem unguem of his land, and if that he had thought the King's Majesty would have gone that ways to work he would never have entered the ways for a peace that he hath done; commanding his ambassadors to return home; which Sturmius saith they have staid upon [hope to] have a truce yet at your (sic) Mates [hand, to th']entent in the meantime some better way may fortune between them." Sturmius says that the French king is as near a conclusion with the Emperor as the King is, and, at the Emperor's request, he is sending unum ex intimis thither. Help me to an answer to my letters of the 23rd and the others of today. Cales, 26 Dec. 1545 at night.

R. O. Since in this affair for which we were sent here God has disposed as you will have already learnt by your premier secretary, there only remains for us to take leave of your Majesty. It would be a great joy to us if we had done more; but we have this hope, that you will appreciate our good will in this business. And, as we are on the point of going, if it please you to send or write anything to any of our states, or to all, we will [deliver it?]. Calais, 26 Dec. 1545.

This afternoon Brewno came to know if Paget had answer concerning a truce. Said he expected it tonight or tomorrow if the wind served, and he hoped that Henry, out of affection to the princes of Almayn, would consent to it, but there was no hope of the comprehension of the Scots. Brewno feared that, in that case, nothing would be done; and yet a truce would make the Protestants bolder with the Emperor at this Diet and [serve] Henry well, for he (Brewno) would tell, in secrecy, that stabling was ordered at Ardre for 600 horsemen and 400 more footmen were come thither, the French king intending after Candlemas to encamp on this side Bulloyn and build a new fortification, which would touch Henry's honor, for the world mused at his suffering the French to make the new fort last year; he would gladly know why Paget stuck so much at the comprehension of the Scots. Answered that the French brags were well known, who should fortify between Boulloyn and Calais "with ill rest," as they should have done at their new fort last year but for Reiffenbergh's fault; as for the Scots, the French king made a truce (my lord of Duresme and the bp. of Coventre and Lichefeld being the King's commissioners, and Mons. de Bryon, afterwards Admiral, and John de Selva, president of Rouen, the French king's) (fn. n4) leaving them uncomprehended, and also has made peace (fn. n5) with the Emperor leaving them out, and the Scots and he entered not the war together nor for one cause; and here Paget repeated how the Scots were comprehended conditionally, but the nature of the Borderers was such that in time of peace they invaded each other with 100, 200, or more horsemen, so that at any time the French king might take occasion to say that we broke truce by invasion of the Scots, whereas Henry, "being very religious in the observance of his covenants," would not take like advantage; and, besides, a truce marchande and communicative cannot be made with the Scots, "for when we make never so strait league or truce with them, we never agree [upon commerce?] nor any of the subjects either trafficque . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . under special safeconduct"; another reason (which Brewno must not use as gathered from Paget) was that the Scots could not be comprehended without the Emperor's consent; but when it came to reasoning with the French commissioners (Paget said) he would not use so many reasons.
Would take that course with the Frenchmen for two respects, viz. (1) that if it were plainly confessed to the French commissioners that Henry cannot comprehend the Scots without the Emperor's consent the Frenchmen would easily get it, for the Emperor's defiance of the Scots was against the will of his Low Country, and Paget, when in Flanders, perceived that he desired an appointment with Scotland; (2) that "the confession thereof in such a presence ([namely?] thr[ee commissioners] for the French king and four for the Princes of Almayn) should be much prejudicial to your Majesty's proceedings in case hereafter, upon any occasion, your Majesty should do the contrary." Means henceforth not to meddle with Sturmius or Brewno apart from his colleagues. Calais, 27 Dec. 1545. Signed.
P.S.—Henry's letters and the form of the treaty have arrived. Put in the word "armatorum" in order that, the Scots not being comprehended, and thereby Henry having occasion to keep men of war upon the sea, his ships of war might weather in their ports without offence. The article of restitution in case of depredation by consent of either prince, if it mean that the truce shall not be taken as broken by such depredation, might be dangerous, because the enemy, knowing it to be a only matter of restitution, might enterprise more than were expedient. Are appointed to treat with all the Protestants tomorrow morning.

27 Dec. 1045. Paget to Petre.
R. O. I am glad that you are amended, having heard that you were very sick. I thank you for your last letter, (fn. n6) and specially "for the repetition therein of the most godly, wise and kingly oration which his Majesty had to his subjects at the prorogation of the Parliament. I wish myself bound to have eaten fish this xij month (as ill as it is for me) upon condition that I had heard divinam illam tanta Majestatis et tam reverendam orationem, whereat I am sure mine eyes would largely have uttered the affections of mine heart, hearing it expressed tam, florida et viva core as I know his Majesty can, and I doubt not did, when that reading your recital but of a piece of it my heart doth yearn. Our Lord save him, good king, and make his subjects good!"
Help us to a speedy answer of these letters, and you shall be troubled with no more until we send "hab or nab." I sent away the Council's letter (fn. n7) to the ambassadors with the Emperor and also one of my own declaring how we stand. I noted that, for expedition (which is necessary) notwithstanding the notes in the margin, "his Majesty would in the extremity they should proceed according to the form which they there took the ambassadors"; but, afterwards, in the letter, they are directed to get the addition of an article or two more than is in the form delivered by the Emperor's Council, which may give the ambassadors occasion to hear from you again and cause longer delay (the Emperor going towards Almayn, and we peradventure breaking off) than were expedient, unless the King mind in anywise to have these articles added, viz., "for the bonds of the countries and the passage through the enemy's (sic) countries." I may have mistaken it, but, if they are to go through at the Emperor's Court with or without these articles, it were well to despatch to them again; "for the worse end we make here, the better must the Emperor be entertained." Cales, 27 Dec., late in the night, 1545.
P.S.—"If we come not home shortly, you must help us with more money, for our diets be at a point and we look not for Chamberleyn's money these x or xij days, so as we m[us]t borrow for B[rew]no." Sleydanus sends herewith a letter which he has sent to the French king against the Bishop of Rome's jurisdiction in France, written in French very eloquently. If we make a truce, I wish it might please his Majesty to bestow somewhat upon Sturmius, who may do honest service in "mayning the matter of peace."

R. O. Yesterday received theirs of the 20th and 21st, directing him to send Sir Edward Wotton, treasurer at Callais, the money remaining in his hands and to call for repayment of extortions by Riffenberghe and others, wherein he will be diligent and will also cause Eidellwolff and Bucholt to be convented before the Emperor. Immediately upon receipt of their letters, learnt that Riffenberghe has been here five or six days; and at once sent to the ambassadors to know if he had been with the Emperor, and for advice how and when to repair to the Emperor's Court, who is yet at Boisleduc, and, being amended of his gout, removes tomorrow to Utrecht. Wrote to the ambassadors again for passport for the money, because of the search at Graveling; and, when it comes, will send the money by Mr. Damesell to Calles. Andwarpe, 27 Dec. 1545.
Sent the ordnance and munition to Callais in the ship of Dryver of Lee.

R. O. Received his letter yesterday with that from the Council, touching Riffenberghe and the sending of the money to Callais. Upon Paget's advice to be present at the Emperor's Court, intends to send the money by Mr. Damisell as soon as the passport comes; having sent again to the ambassadors for that and for advice concerning Riffenberghe, who is said to be here. Paget's plate will not be all finished until after New Year's Day, but as much of it as possible will be sent by Damisell. The stamp of his arms shall be made according to his last advice. Cannot repair home so soon as he expected, because of this business with Riffenberghe, and begs Paget's remembrance, for this journey has been costly to him. Andwarpe, 27 Dec. 1545.

As to the third complaint, of the passage of soldiers through the Emperor's country against the English, the King says that some of his soldiers did indeed pass through a corner without knowing it; but such a small matter was not worth the words which the Emperor used to Father Guzman, whereas he (the King) had suffered that for weeks the soldiers which came into France against him had passage, victuals and maintenance in the Emperor's countries. The Father also says confidentially however, that the King resented the Emperor's having taken means, by way of the duke of Alva and Granvela, to get his ambassador to intimate that he should send the Admiral, because means would be found to make the marriage of Madame Margaret with the Prince of Spain, and to settle all the other things; and then, after making use of this reputation with the Germans and English, sending him back with nothing;—just as, when at Home, the Emperor caused Mons. de Vegli, his (the French king's) ambassador, to be told that, if he sent some great personage, means would be found to accommodate the matter of Milan, and the Cardinal of Lorraine was sent, who also caused the Admiral, then in Piedmont with the army, to be superseded, but the Emperor only used the reputation of it with the princes of Italy while preparing to invade Provence. The same happened when the Emperor caused Mons. de Tarba, (fn. n8) then the King's ambassador in Spain, to be told that the Emperor had determined to pass into Flanders by sea, and that if the King were to offer him passage by France he would make a perpetual agreement and give satisfaction about Milan; which the King did in the courteous and royal manner which is known, and yet, when once out of France, the Emperor made no more account of it. The King likewise mentioned how, immediately after the peace, he sent the Queen and all the Court hither, and the Cardinal of Tornon and Mons. d'Orleans twice, and the hostages which he gave and other efforts which he made; whereas the Emperor has sent no one, nor made any sign of response.
Report this, so as not to omit anything that Gusman has told them, who shows himself very dutiful to His Holiness and deserves thanks, through the medium of the Count of Pugne in Rostro his relative.

Meeting at Hampton Court, 28 Dec. Present: Great Master, Privy Seal, Great Chamberlain, Essex, Admiral, Cheyney, Gage, Browne, Wingfield, Petre, Sadler. Business:—Letter to Lord Chancellor to discharge Sir John Gage out of the book of commissioners for the Subsidy and put in the bp. of Chichester instead, and to send the Council a copy of the book of commissioners' names in every shire. Warrant to Treasurer of the —— (blank) to deliver to Ant. Brakenbury, for the North, 400l.; to Tiberio Calabrese, reward to him and his brethren, 37l. 10s.; to Patrick Hume, for posting with letters out of Ireland and back again to my lord of Lyneulx, 12l. 10x.; and to Jerome Palmer for posting to and fro with letters to Paget at Calais, 50s Letters addressed to wardens of East and Middle Marches, in respect to their late loss by the Scots at Mylstanes, henceforth always to appoint some man of wit and authority to lead such raids and to punish such as "give example to any like disorder'; also Evre to see to the utterance of certain biscuit at Berwick which is likely to perish, and meanwhile stop baking there. Letter to Lord Lieutenant of Bulloigne that the King has seen the letters from the Council there of the 25th inst., and, as to the misery of the soldiers for want of full pay, not knowing how far the money sent by Sir Ric. Southwell will stretch or how much is lacking, requires a more certain declaration signed by Southwell; also that expedition was used in sending them victuals.
28 Dec. 1050. Paget to Petre.
R. O. Cutpenyng, the coronell, is gone over thither, without leave, by the fault either of the "walterbalif" or of him whom I required to give order therein. He was to have dined yesterday with the Protestants, and went away in the morning without bidding us farewell. This day my lord of Durham, Mr. Tregonwell and I spoke with the Protestants all together, who promised to set forth to the Frenchmen our reasons against the comprehension of the Scots, but fear that "the French will depart without coming in colloquium, but I h[ave] thr[own a] bone (?) for them to gnaw upon until we may hear what we shall [do] in that behalf, wherein I pray you to use expedition." Cales, 28 Dec. 1545.
This day Brewno told me that, if truce follow not, we shall see an alteration of things in France within 20 days, "and that they would be ready by that time upon the seas, as he was enformed."

Warrant to Peckham to deliver to my lord Great Master, or to Ric. Knight and Wm. Kettle for victual for the Navy, 1,000l. Three several letters directed to the mayor of Norwich and bailiffs of Ipswich and Colchester, because much butter and cheese was conveyed into these towns by night, thus hindering the King's provision for Calais and Boulogne, to assist the bearers in a search from house to house to see what butter and cheese is at present in these towns, and stay it until further order from the Council. Letter to Lord Lieutenant of Boulogne that the King answered his book sent by the secretary of Boulogne as follows:—That his Majesty liked the appointment of 300 to one captain and the residue of that device, and remitted the appointment of captains and petty captains to him, that as to pioneers and victuals he should follow the instruction given to Southwell, that as to the repair thither of the horsemen of Calais the King awaits advertisement from Mr. Rows and Mr. Aucher how they may have victuals. Letter addressed to the Earl of Ourmounde that, according to his intercession to repair to the King for his declaration upon things wherein he thought himself touched, he might so repair and be sure of gracious audience; to Lord Deputy of Ireland, advertising him of this and to send over some person instructed to answer for him in each point; to the abp. of York to take some of the Council there with him to Newcastle, and enquire into an information by Gowre, marshal of Berwick, against Lord Evre. Warrant to Williams to deliver 60 marks to Mr. Bellingham for his charges in going to Bulloigne. Warrant to Sir Thos. Seymour to deliver to Edm.

The King has received your lordship's letters by bearer, and considered the "book for the numbers to remain there" and bearer's credence. Touching the book, his Majesty likes the appointing of 300 to one captain and the residue of your device therein; and, as for his appointing the captains, he remits to your Lordship and the Council there to appoint such as have done best service and are, for wit, courage and experience, to be preferred. As to the order of the pioneers and ministers of victuals, you, Sir Richard Southwell, have sufficient commission. The King thinks with you that the horsemen of Calays would do good service at Boloyn, but suspends his determination until he may hear from Mr. Rous and Mr. Awcher how they may be victualled.

The King perceives by his letters to Petre of the 26th what precise answer is returned from the French king and the small likelihood of any agreement. If the French will neither come to peace nor truce, but will break off, Paget and his colleagues shall, either before the departing of the French commissioners or soon after, return to his Majesty; entertaining the Protestant commissioners with good words of his Majesty's affection to their masters and of his thanks for their labours; adding that because there is such towardness of an amity between the Emperor and the French king mayned by Friar Gosman he wishes their masters warned to take heed that they be not trapped thereby. They may also be told of the nearness of the ecclarisshment of the treaty with the Emperor.
Captain Courtpenynke is to be appointed such pension as Paget thinks convenient, given a reward out of the King's treasure there, sworn his Majesty's servant and sent home to put 3,000 or 4,000 footmen ready at one month's warning.

R. O. Since my coming home Jasper Dowche's man has importuned me for answer to his demand. I told how offended you were at Calles that I brought not the two rings which were shown you by Jasper Dowche in the Fowker's house and offered with the other jewels for 50,000 cr., and that you thought Jasper Dowche, as a worker of the bargain, should have seen that all the jewels offered were delivered. I have given the servant a letter (copy enclosed) to his master and pray you to favour his suit as he has honestly travailed to serve the King, and yourself to signify the lack of the two rings lest it be thought an invention of mine to make delay. I am even now going to Court to travail for him. London, 29 Dec.

R. O. Mr. Gasparo, at my coming to Calais I reported your demand to my lord Secretary Paget and showed the King's jewels, whereupon he found that two rings, shown him in the maison des Fuggieres with the other jewels, and included in the price of 50,000 cr. asked by the said Fuggers, were wanting. He told me angrily that I had ill served the King, and that he could not think how you should have consented to the Fugger's delivering less than was offered. As, after a thousand labours beyond sea, I have found displeasure here, I write begging him to write to you touching the lack of the said two rings; and in your answer I would advise you to beg him to obtain you some good licence by which you may profit.

The Protestants are just returned from Ardre, where they declared to the French commissioners that Henry, being entreated, at the contemplation of their Princes and States, to treat upon a truce, would nowise agree to the comprehension of the Scots for certain reasons (which they gave); but the French commissioners reply that to leave the Scots out would touch their master's honour, who excused himself somewhat for leaving them out of his treaty with the Emperor by a private promise to the Admiral by Granvele that the Scots should not be troubled, and the oftener he makes any treaty leaving them out the more is his honor touched. Unless the Scots be comprehended the French commissioners mean to depart, saving that the Protestants will essay to bring them in colloquium, first. Sturmius was in hand with Paget apart to promise that at least the Scots should not be invaded during the truce, but Paget answered that he had no such commission, nor thought it reasonable. The Protestants made many desires for this truce, promising every effort to get your Highness Bulloyn and Boullonnoys with the whole county of Guisnes and "enduce the French king to the abandonyng of the Pope orels [to leave] his freendshipp and t[o give] your Mat to knowe that they estemed yours. Nevertheles like men wtout hope of any treux we departed from them [look] ing what shall be accorded for our [last meeting and depar]tyng oneles your Mate shall prescribe [otherwise] unto us betwen this and Saturday (fn. n9), upon which daye it is thought we shall assemble for our farewel."

R. O. Their letters to the King show the effect of this journey and of all the industry used by them. Peace had been best for all parties, and next to that a truce, "but for nothing else saving the making of a way to peace, which God grant us once to His honor and glory and the contentation of the King's Majesty, with the preservation of many an innocent's blood." When the Frenchmen and Protestants be departed we intend to return unless countermanded meanwhile. My lord of Surrey has warning of what is looked for, who, as he told me, has already advertised by Sir Thomas Palmer "in what they shalbe able to do annoyance (?) to . . . . . . . howbeit his Mate who knowy[th] . . . . . . . . . . . . . [stren]gthes of his peces on thisside, with the nombres in them and the n[at]ure of the places adjacent, can tel aswel as all they what is to be done or not done in every thing." God send me "no more to treat in so great matters, for I think I am unhappy." Cales, 29 Dec. 1545, at 8 p.m.

Wrote on the 26th the King's pleasure for their concluding the "esclarisshment" with the addition of two articles, viz. "for the bandes of the states and cities and tharticle for thentrie of thennemies by thothers countree"; but, if the Emperor's Council will nowise consent to these additions, the conclusion is to be made without them.
P.S.—The article for the entry of the enemies is already covenanted in the 4th article of the treaty, and as the Frenchmen have lately twice made such entries there is no cause to stick at this article. If they will not pass it as a new article an effort must be made to get it passed as a declaration to the 4th article; but, failing that, the conclusion is to be made without more delay.

30 Dec. 1060. The Privy Council to Paget.
R. O. Understanding, by his letters of the 27th, his desire to be eftsoons advertised of the King's pleasure touching the word armatorum which was left out in the articles sent from hence, they signify that although that word in the capitulation might occasionally serve, the truce being without the comprehension of the Scots, the case of the King's men of war harbouring in French havens is very rare, and therefore the word is best left out. Touching the "revocation of attemptates done by commandment of either prince," the King likes Paget's reason, in case the French king mean not good faith, "butt yett, of thother side, if his meaning shall nott be grownded uppon more honor then so, and thatt doing of every attemptat shuld be accompted a breach of the truex it might give a very easy occasion of quarell to say the truex wer broken allmost as often as he listed; wherfore his Mate thinketh good yow add to thatt part of thither capitulation sent from hens thatt [thattemptates ?] shall . . . . . . . . . . . . . moneth * * * [a]fter w . . . . his Highness is pleased yow shall also covenaunt for thatt poyntt." The King likes your fashion of the opening of the considerations against the comprehension of the Scots. In his last letters it was written to you that by his treaties with the Emperor he might not comprehend them; leaving out the words "without the Emperor's consent" lest they should offer to get that consent and the Emperor thus rid himself of that matter. The King is pleased to give a reward to Sturmius and remits the taxation of it to you, "praying yow also to fynd some meanes thatt it may be payd on [to him] ther. [Touching the] maner of your departing, if yow shall neyther . . . . . . . . . . [his] Highnes pleasure was . . . . . yow by or letters of xxviijth. Mary! in case of any agrement [his] Mate thinketh good yow shall bydd each other farewell gentely [with] sucn good wordes and maner of enterteynment as apperteyneth." Westm., 30 Dec.
P.S.—As we were about the despatch of these letters, here arrived your other letters of the 28th, to know the King's pleasure touching a conference before your departing; and, although little fruit is like to ensue thereof unless the French commissioners relent, his Majesty is pleased that you come in colloquium, "so as you descend to no other overtures than have been already signified from hence unto you."
P.S.—After the writing and signing of these letters arrived here your other letters to the King's Majesty of the 29th, whereby it appears that Sturmius was in hand with "you, Mr. Secretary, to promys privatlye att the lest to hym and . . . . . thatt the Scottes sh[uld not be] invadyd during the truex and . . . . . . . . . . . . . wold [hope to] have this truex agreed upon . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .promys for ther princes and . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . erunto his Mates pleasure is yow shall say thatt, if the Scottes wyll observe ther pactes and covenanntes made unto [his] Mate and neyther invade his Mates domynions nor o[ther] wise give occasion therunto, yow trust veryly and doubt nott butt his Mate wyll be pleased to forbeare any invasion of the Scottes during the sayd truex," wherein you will travail to the utmost trusting that their princes and states will use no less earnestness in the rest that Sturmius has declared.

Reminds him to learn the King's pleasure concerning letters for the despatch of the Marshal and Sleydanus to their princes, delivery of which was deferred in order to give them occasion to tarry at Calais. The princes themselves wrote not to the King, but their ambassadors at the Diet; and therefore it were not amiss if we commissioners here wrote as the King shall prescribe. They tarry only for that, unless the King grant that promise be made for abstinence touching the Scots, wherewith they hope to satisfy the French king for the truce, or else lay the fault of the breaking in his neck, and afterwards to bring him to reasonable conditions of peace. This morning they returned to Ardre to fix our last assembly, whereunto, they think, the French will not be brought lest (as Brewno says) they hear "that which they listed not to hear." From Ardre they will despatch for the French king's final answer, and look for the return on Sunday night. (fn. n10) Although we said that this was our final answer they desired us to write once again, as the King would understand by our letters yesternight. If we have no other advertisement before Sunday or Monday, we will stand to our former answer. Cales, 30 Dec. 1545, at night.

Finding this messenger departing, thinks good to write that Paget's silver vessel and candlesticks are finished and will go with Mr. Damisell tomorrow, with the rest of the King's treasure, for which he has as yet no passport, although he has sent two express messengers to the lords ambassadors. To save time, Damisell will tarry for the passport at Dunkerke or Graveling. The vessel goes unmarked because the stamp will not be finished for ten days yet. Had much ado to get crowns and angels. Sends but 5,000l. st. odd, although the warrant was for 6,000l., because my lord of Westminster and Sir Ralph Fane had each 1,000 cr. Sends with it 278l. 8s. st. which he now furnishes for Paget; desiring that the lords of the Council may know of the 2,000 cr. in case anything "chance by the parties, as we are all mortal." For the rest, which will be very little, the writer will be accountable. On Damisell's departure, will repair to the Emperor at Utrecht, to answer Riffenberghe and others. Wishes Paget a good new year; and sends commendations to my lady, together with six coifs as a present from Paget's hostess of Bruxelles. Andwarp, 31 Dec. 1545.

The speakers and presidents have now all come to Ratisbon, but there is such diversity of opinion as to leave slender hope of agreement. Among the Catholics are two most obstinate monks, one of whom formerly published books against the Protestants and the other at the late Diet of Worms, instead of sermons, made daily attacks upon this doctrine. The Roman bishop also, to frustrate the present colloquy, again calls his Council at Trent; but Mont sees no one from Germany running thither. The Frenchman has ambassadors there. It is rumoured that the Emperor will shortly come to Ratisbon, to go thence into Spain for another Algerian expedition. Some say that the truce granted by the Turk is to the Emperor, some that it is to Ferdinand only, under an annual tribute of 10,000 ducats; and disputes to be at the French king's arbitration. Ferdinand has an ambassador in Germany seeking money for defence of his places on the frontiers of Bosnia. Bohemia has consented that Ferdinand's eldest son shall succeed him, and is thought that that kingdom will henceforth be hereditary to males. The Protestants are now convened at Francfort conferring upon the establishing of religion, for they distrust the Emperor and Roman bishop. The Swiss are prepared to aid them in that cause. The Duke of Bavaria also lately offered men to the Landgrave for the Brunswick war. For all orders of Germany are much offended at that citation which the Emperor at the Court of Brabant published against the abp. of Cologne, and which is said to have been now published a second time. The Princes and States mostly advise the bp. to appeal to the peers of the Empire; but it is not likely that the Emperor will desist, especially as the Roman bishop is the instigator, who intends shortly to make severe edicts against the said Abp. Some French captains are now in Strasburg, but it is not known why old Georgius a Reckroed, who commands the footmen in France, is now with the Landgrave. Count William a Furstenberg is now at home at ease near Strasburg. Strasburg, 31 Dec. 1545.

The departure of Bucler and revocation from the commission is deplored by all Protestants and good men who desire the union with the King, which they had hoped for at this Diet at Francfort; for they see the Roman bishop and his accomplices confounding heaven and earth, and, having common cause with the King, would together with him defend their liberty. Has determined to set out for Francfort tomorrow, for he hears that Granvelle is coming thither and will go thence to Ratisbon. Of other things done in Germany has certified the King.

R. O. Trento, ulto de Dicembre 1545:—The Cardinal of Trent has shown me a letter of 19 Dec. from Lady Catherina, wife of Signor Luigi Gonzaga da Castel Guifre, begging his intercession, because she hears that Mons. de Granvela has used hot words against her husband for the practice which he had to serve England. "Di que il detto Carle m'arguiva, che si dice, et io (quando sia vero) dubitaria che fusse stato piu presto per non piacere a S. Mta che altri principi grandi tenghino le mani o piedi in Italia senza il suo mezzo: necessitando cosi tanto piu Inghilterra a fare stima di lei." He also says that today he has letters of the 17th from the Emperor's Court mentioning that new ambassadors are expected from France notwithstanding that Friar Gusman was departed without conclusion; and that the Emperor had revoked his harbingers already sent out in the direction of Ratisbon.
