June 1546, 21-30

21 June. 1105. The Privy Council.
A.P.C., 463.
Meeting at Greenwich, 21 June. Present: Chancellor, Privy Seal, Essex, [Winchester, Cheyney, Gage, Browne, Wingfield, Paget, Petre, Sadler, Riche, Wotton]. Business:—Letter to customers, etc., of Dartmouth to suffer Barth. Campani to convey beyond sea the alum belonging to Thos. Sartini and Albizo del Bene, Florentines, which the Council ordered to be given up by Wm. Holland of Dartmouth, who took it as good prize.
21 June. 1106. The Privy Council to Carne.
R. O. Showed his letters of the 18th inst. to the King. Whereas President Score and other of the Regent's Council would know whether the Scots are included in this peace with France, Carne shall answer that the treaty provides for their comprehension if they observe such leagues and treaties as they have made with the King, and also certain conditions of former treaties. If they fail to observe these, the French king is bound to relinquish them. A delay of one month is granted for the intimation thereof by the French king to the Scots.
Draft in Petre's hand, pp. 2. Endd.: M. to Mr. Kerne xxjo. Junii 1546.
ii. On a blank page is the commencement of a draft (also in Petre's hand) of a letter from the Council to the Council of Calais (?) to the effect that the King considering what inconveniency might ensue "to his Highness' juels of thatt side for want of such furniture of victuals within every of the same as ought to remain always there by the ordinance, and hath been used also in times past, hath commanded us to remember"——
21 June. 1107. Elsing Spitell.
R. O. Certificate made, 21 June 38 Hen. VIII., by Richard Barrett, rent-gatherer for about 20 years of the possessions in London of Christchurch in Canterbury, that the only quit-rent of 50s. paid to Christchurch out of any possession of Elsyng Spitell was, according to the words of the acquittance, due from a tenement in Hosyer Lane wherein Sir Thomas Baldry, knight, dec., dwelt (extract quoted from a rental of 30 Hen. VIII. when the 50s. was paid by Thomas Barnewell, gent.). Signed.

21 June. 1108. Hertford to Henry VIII.
R. O. Yesternight I received letters from your Council for the dissolution of your army, etc.; otherwise I had meant to place my brother with 800 soldiers at the Blacknesse, and 1,200 at the Master of the Horse's camp, if I could have brought them to work for money (for lack whereof I can neither pay their wages nor press them thereunto). My brother, the bearer, can declare affairs here, whose absence will hinder your fortifications here if you intend to proceed in them with soldiers—and with pioneers only it were a long and chargeable work.
(fn. n1) As the strangers who were here under my cousin Knyvet's charge are not yet fully dismissed, he should be present here, but, since he is appointed by your letters to attend my lord Admiral into France, I have licensed him to repair over, to furnish himself and learn whether he may be "padryne" to Julyan Romero, one of your Spanish captains here, in combat with Mora who fled from your service. Their camp is appointed to be fought on the 8th of next month before the French king at Fonteynblewe, and it is said that the French king and Dolphin assist and favour Mora. Newehaven in Bullonoyes, 21 June 1546. Signed.

21 June. 1109. Thirlby to Paget.
R. O. Preparations to war proceed diligently, and since the answer of the States to the controversy of religion no further consultations have been held upon the other articles propounded by the Emperor. Some think that the Council of Trent ("now is the time appointed at their last session to go forward") will stay till they see what comes of these wars. The Cardinal of Trent is expected to return hither with the army of Italians and Spaniards from Naples, who number 20,000 but cannot be here before the end of July. Cardinal Fernesius shall come with the Bishop of Rome's army as legate of the Camp. Vice-chancellor Naves is sent to the Count Palantyne to persuade him to be still, as the Emperor makes not this war for the cause of religion. Here is news by merchants' letters (by whom we have had all the lies of this year) that the Frenchmen have "trumped in your way" and you are again at war. "I think surely some say as they would have it; but my hope is that, seeing such as hath played with you have so often trumped in your way, ye will have a 'cote' in store to take up their trump if need be." Mons. du Bures is said to have taken into wages all Italians and Spaniards who served the King. I wish you had "a good reckoning of Scotland" ere the King finally disarm. Would that the King might make an end of wars and spend "the residue of his years (which God grant to be many, many and many) in rest and peace." Raynspurgh, 21 June.

21 June. 1110. Charles V. to Van der Delft.
viii., No. 280.
Thanks for his of the 15th and 27th ult. and 3rd inst. A letter received subsequently from the Queen Dowager encloses one of 16 June to her from the Admiral of France announcing the peace, of which the English ambassador also assured her. Has been in doubt whether to allow the return of the French galleys to Marseilles by way of Spain in view of the injuries they did in coming and the continued molestation of his subjects at sea by the French. If the subject is mentioned, Vander Delft may set forth these robberies and suggest making redress before asking for free passage; but he shall "neither refuse nor accede to the request" and shall report at once what is said in reply. He must forthwith obtain audience and assure the King of the Emperor's satisfaction at the peace and preservation of their alliance, enlarging upon this with a view to show that the Emperor was anxious for the agreement to be made.
Rumors will have reached England that the Emperor is mustering an army; and perhaps the Protestants, ignorant of his object, may seek the King's help. Van der Delft must be vigilant; he may inform the King that the Emperor could not ignore the proffered support and exhortations of the Catholics and honest folk, urging him to correct certain princes who would hinder peace and justice and oppress ecclesiastics and nobles upon pretext of religion, and he trusts that the King will demonstrate his friendship by refusing to listen to such people. Sends a letter of credence to support this statement. Ratisbon, 21 June 1546.
22 June. 1111. The Privy Council to Sir Edward North.
R. O. Sir Edward Boughton is ordered to pay 18l. arrears of the farm of the manor and parsonage of Plomisted, his claim for certain allowances being referred to your Court. Greenwich, 22 June 1546. Signed by Wriothesley, Russell, Gardiner and Petre.
P. 1. Add.: Chancellor of the Augmentacion of the Revenues of the King's Highness crown. Endd.: The Lordes letters.
22 June. 1112. Mary of Hungary to Vander Delft.
viii. No. 281.
The Emperor writes that, all his efforts to tranquillize Germany being frustrated by the opposition of the Duke of Saxony and Landgrave, who keep prisoners Duke Henry of Brunswick and his son and occupy their territories, and refuse to attend the Diet, he is raising horse and foot to reduce these two princes to obedience. The Emperor will shortly send information of this, to be communicated to the King, but she thinks he should anticipate its receipt. As many people try to make out that this enterprise against the Duke and Landgrave is really undertaken on religious grounds, he may assure the King that the Emperor does not intend to meddle with the religious question. Report what the King seems to think of it and what rumours are current.
Has not been able to learn particulars of the peace between the English and French. It is important to know whether the Scots are included unconditionally and the war with them at an end. The English ambassador professes to know nothing. Vander Delft shall remind the King or Council that the Emperor declared war against the Scots at their request and refused to include the Scots in his treaty with France; and therefore she wishes to know whether the war with the Scots continues. The French assert that the Scots are included unconditionally in this treaty, and no doubt, if they are included, the King will have taken measures to prevent their injuring her subjects. Desires an explanation of the Bishop of Durham's saying that the Scots were included on condition that they fulfilled their treaties with England, and whether it carries with it cessation of the war.
Has given permission for soldiers who have left the English service to pass. Brussels, 22 June 1546.
22 June. 1113. Vaughan to Henry VIII.
R. O. Yesterday evening Jasper Dowche, according to his promise, came and told how he had travailed in the matter to which Vaughan set him, and had obtained 50,000l. Fl. to be emprunted, provided that the King would take half or 20,000l. thereof in copper, and unless copper or some jewel were taken no money could be had. After long talk, Vaughan answered that assuredly the King would take no such lump of wares with so little money, when he had already taken order for the payment of the Fugger.
Dowche then said that the "terriblest" war was in hand between the Emperor and the Duke of Saxe, Landisgrave of Hesse and bp. of Cullen, the Emperor having 20,000 Almains, 30,000 Italians and 10,000 Spaniards, and having sent word by his Chancellor to most of the cities that this war was not against the Almains for matters of religion but against these three princes for disobedience, the Emperor reckoned to subdue the three princes and "bring all the Almains to an obedience." The Bishop of Rome had promised to aid the Emperor with 200,000 cr. a month; and the Emperor had sent the Cardinal of Trydent to him for the money and other things. Lastly Jasper asked (subtilly) what sum the King had provided to be paid here by his subjects. Told him, "by these and others," 100,000l. st. He said he perceived that the King would anticipate part of the money for interest. Answered that no interest was looked for, but only to respite a like sum for equal time. Jasper said he would cause the Fugger to receive the money; but it was evident that he would fain have it himself to serve the Emperor, who, he says, has sent to the Fugger, the Welsar, John Carolo, and many more, for a great emprunture and also shall have much money from Italy and Spaygn. The bruit of this war "stayeth the traffic of the merchants here greatly."
Jasper would have the King continue in debt, and desires speedy answer concerning this offer of 50,000l. Fl. in money and copper. Asks what order to take with Bartylmew Compaigne for the 6,000l. Fl. due 15 July in valued gold and silver. It would be more profitable to cause four of the Council to agree him there "than to have him agreed with here." Italians who lately sent goods by wagon, through Almain, into Italy have sent posts to stay the wagons ere they reach Almain, for fear of this war. Many Almains here, if they mislike the bruit in Almain, will send their goods into England. One of them tells Vaughan that many lanzknechts taken up to serve the Emperor refuse to take oath against the three princes; also that the Swiss have 30,000 men ready to stop the passage of Italians and Spaniards out of Spain and Italy. Andwerp, 22 June.

22 June. 1114. Vaughan to the Council.
R. O. Much desires to know how to agree here with Bartilmew Compaigne's factor for 6,000l. Fl. which the Council are bound to pay him on 15 July next, "two parts thereof in valued gold and one part in valued money." As the man is honest it were much better to agree with him there than with his factor here. "There is honest cause why he should be contented for nothing; for where I should have received of him when he paid me 6,000l. Flem., I took of him so much less as the interest amounted to, wherein the King's Majesty had wrong, but your Honours had so made your bond unto him." Both he and his factor have deserved favour. For Jasper Dowche's answer, and for occurrents, refers to his letter to the King, herewith. Andwerp, 22 June.

It is certain that the Emperor will set upon the duke of Saxon, the Landesgrave and the bp. of Cullen; and he persuades, all the cities of Almayn "that this war he moveth not against none of the cities for matters of religion, but against those 3 princes only, for disobedience." He has 20,000 Almayns, 30,000 Italians and 10,000 Spaniards. "This war is of great moment, an other manner of matter than the war out of which we are lately delivered. Fare ye well, mine own good Lord with my good lady, long to live together in godly love and agreement." Andwerp, 22 June.

Instructions for Odet de Selve.
Mons. de Selve, councillor of the King in his Grand Council, shall make all haste to the King of England and, presenting the King's autograph letter and commendations, shall announce his appointment to reside as ambassador. He shall then say that the Admiral has been commanded to proceed thither soon, both for the ratification and for a declaration of the King's pleasure at the renewal of the amity, the Admiral, as the nearest to the King's person and having the chief management of his affairs, being best able to speak with assurance. Some days later he shall say, upon opportunity, that if the King of England will appoint two deputies to settle the question of his claim of the 512,000 cr., under a certain obligation of the year 1529, the King will on his side name two, in accordance with the treaty. They should meet at the place where the ambassadors last met for the treaty. Barbeau, 22 June 1546.

Meeting at Greenwich, 23 June. Present: Chancellor, Privy Seal, Essex, [Winchester, Cheyney, Gage, Browne, Wingfield, Paget, Petre, Sadler, Riche, Wotton.] Business:—Warrants for money to be carried by John Milesento to Sir John Harington for the dissolution of the army, viz., from the Augmentations 3,500l., Pekham, treasurer of the Mint, 1,500, 500l. and 13l. 6s. 8d. for costs, and the treasurer of the Chamber 500l. John Hadlam, of Essex, sent up by Mr. Lucas of Colchester, with others who had been detected of opinions against the Sacrament, was this day, and also yesterday, examined and, obstinately "standing to his own ignorant sense," was remanded to the man who brought him; eftsoons he was called in and sent to Newgate, and Smith and Abbote, who came with him, were committed to the Porter's lodge for further examination. Letter to Mr. Aucher to treat with Pilkenny, searcher of Dover, for restitution to Julio de Romero of 21l. stayed there, as it was sent for his furniture in the King's service. Like letter to Pilkenney.
23 June. 1120. William Pynnock, Receiver of Warwick, to the Council.
R. O. Answers to their letter of 5 June, that, for the building of the castle of Warwick, there has been taken from the late Fryer Howss, which Robert Web bought and yet stands charged with 6l. for, in these three years past, as appears by the books of the carriage, somewhat above 500 loads of stone; and more must be had to finish the reparations now in hand. Is uncertain how to value it, as it was of divers sorts; but had it been to get elsewhere the digging alone would have cost more than 6l. Thinks the rest has been worth no great thing to Web; and for the stone taken to the reparations no penny has been paid. Warwick, 23 June.

R. O. According to the King's pleasure signified by the Council's letters, sends herewith Cavelero, Andreo Renezi and John de Lanciano, three of the notablest of the Albonyes who have served in the King's wars. They did good service both before Hertford's coming and since; and they are "the meetest men of that nation to serve in such cases." Newhaven in Bullonoys, 23 June 1546. Signed.

23 June. 1122. Hertford to Paget.
R. O. Lately wrote by his brother, to the King, his determination to place soldiers with his said brother at Blacknesse and lie himself at Bollyn with other soldiers at the Master of the Horse's camp to advance the fortifications. Having no money either to dissolve the army (unpaid since the 11th inst.) or conveniently press them to work, and perceiving them frowardly determined not to work, because they would fain be at home for their hay and harvest, Hertford yesterday addressed all the captains, in the men's hearing, declaring their unprofitable lying here, their duty to serve, the King's charge in keeping them, and how acceptable it should be to his Majesty if they brought the things already begun to perfection; and he exhorted every man to work three hours in the forenoon and as much in the afternoon, and they should have a groat a day besides their wages, and be paid the whole and return home within fifteen days. If he can persuade them to this, the cost of 1,200l. above their wages will save five times as much hereafter; and he earnestly begs that money may be sent in time to enable him to keep his promise. On Monday last (fn. n3) mustered the lance-knights at Bulloyne and, calling their officers, declared that the King, intending to dissolve his army, thanked them for their good service, and of his liberality gave them a month's wages to bring them home, which he was not bound to do. They were thoroughly pleased and gave the King humble thanks, declaring their readiness always to serve him. Found them honest and conformable, and would rather be in company with 10,000 of them than 1,000 Italians. At the dissolving of the French king's lance-knights under the Ringrave, Mons. du Bies thought to discharge them with a month's wages beforehand, whereof 5 or 6 days were past; but they got him within their ring and would not suffer him to depart until he promised their full month's wages and liberty to pass homewards through France without paying for what they took. Gives letters of commendation to Cavelero, Captain Andreo and John de Launciano, who now repair to Court; and, in case Salerno, who led the Italian footmen, should require like letters, advertises Paget that his service "hath not been such as deserveth any further reward or recompense than the pension he hath already."

Business:—Upon advertisment from John Beaumont, receiver of the Wards, that the Marquis Dorset had used threats to him, being custos rotulorum, at the late sessions at Leicester, and that Sir William Turvil offered him protection, all three were sent for and the Marquis commanded to permit Beaumont to pass hither quietly. Erasmus Scetes had warrants to Williams and the treasurer of the Tenth, each 500l., for grain furnished by his father out of Estland. Richard Knight had like warrants, each 500l., for the lord Great Master at Portsmouth. Letter to President of the North and Wardens of the Borders to show friendship to Mons. Doisy, gentleman of the French king's privy Chamber, now despatched by his master into Scotland touching the peace; also placard for posthorses for Doisye. Letter to mayor, &c., of Southampton to permit the Sainct James of Bylboa, which in her voyage towards Flanders was driven to shelter there eight days before the proclamation of peace with France, to discharge and sell her lading of canvas.

Placard to John Milesent to take up carts to Dover for conveyance of treasure; and letter to captains upon the Narrow Seas for its waftage, and to Mr. Aucher to lend assistance.

R. O. Bearer, Amerigo Anthenori, being discharged of service here, desires to see the King, and would needs have me write these two words in his favour. Upon his pay, travailing to defalke the 400cr. delivered to him in prest there (for the King should not sustain that charge until his band assembled), I meant now, the rather for your letters, "to reward him with the one half thereof at his return." Nevertheless, if you think it should be amplified I will do so. Newhaven in Bullonoyes, 24 June 1546. Signed.

24 June. 1126. Mont to Paget.
R. O. Mr. Mason now writes the reports of the collection of soldiers by the Emperor, who has evidently been long preparing and has addressed the nobles in various places to allay suspicion of him. But doubtless all is the work of the Bishop of Rome, who might see the necessity for an extreme effort, for daily his number diminishes and, when he sees nothing gained by writings, disputations and diets, now procures action by war and arms. Of the preparation of the Protestants nothing certain is heard; and the Emperor craftily shapes his answers so as to appear desirous only of healing the sick members of the body, like the hyæna which is said to weep when it prepares to devour men. Sends a translation of the speech of the Emperor's commissaries delivered at Mentz before the nobles of the Rhine, and their answer. It is greatly to be feared lest the simplicity and credulity of our men be to their extreme hurt, for they do not understand Spanish arts and feigned sanctity. We have this disadvantage, too, that in our States the heads are diverse and it is not given to every man to expend all his goods for piety; for hope is hard to buy. Commendations to Mr. Peter, your colleague. Spires, 24 June 15[46].

Has received the Council's letters touching his revocation, and will as shortly as possible take leave. Meanwhile, upon the bruit of war, wherein the Paltzgrave was likely to share, took occasion by the report of Mr. Kerns servant, who, returning from my lord of Westmestre, announced that peace was concluded, to go to Heydelberge. Arrived in the evening and had audience next morning at 9 a.m., telling the Paltzgrave that he expected letters from the King and meanwhile thought it his part to bring word of the peace. The Paltzgrave thanked him heartily and was glad of it; adding that war was now turned upon them. Mason replied that he could hardly be persuaded that he who by speech and writing had desired the quiet of Christendom would now begin a stir, and that against himself, as Germany might be called; against whom was it in particular? "Against the Protestants," quoth the Paltzgrave; "against whom else?" The councillors of the Duke of Sax, the Lantzgrave, the marquis of Brandenburge and himself had desired the Emperor to signify whether he purposed to employ that army against Germany, and had answer that he was not so unnatural, but if he did attempt anything it should be against such as were disobedient and would not consent to reasonable devices for the peace of Germany, whom he must correct; he (the Paltzgrave) knew not how the Emperor would expound disobedience, and, unless religion was comprehended, he could hardly be noted disobedient, his absence from the Diet having been excused; he would be loth to be troubled with war at his age. and although he had received the religion he had not entered any confederation. Then, seeming weary of standing, he retired, saying that he would meet Mason again at dinner. Mason would have excused himself as "a man of diet," but the Paltzgrave said they were well coupled and should each eat and drink as they list. The Chancellor and Secretary, being left to entertain Mason, lamented the state of Germany by the Bishop of Rome's procuration. Told them that if friendship largely offered had been embraced, things had now been in such a trade that the Emperor would attempt nothing. The Chancellor said that if they were beaten in the Pope's quarrel the King's turn would follow. Replied that had the occasions of kindness taken place, as he expected at his coming hither, the King would not have suffered his allies to be beaten; what he might do now, if sought upon, Mason did not know, but, as for fear, God and nature had made so good a wall round their realm that the English never had war unless they went abroad to seek it, and they had one advantage that the Germans lacked, namely, they "draw all after one line." Here there was a pause broken by Hubert saying "Utinam Dominus noster tam cito non prodidisset se." The Chancellor seemed "somewhat altered," saying "Quam proditionem narras?" To which Hubert made no answer, but nodded his head three or four times. At dinner were the Paltzgrave, Duke Philip, Mason, the Chancellor, Mr. Mownt and the Secretary. "The Paltzgrave forced himself to be merry, and ever he talked of the coursing in Egham meade, but methought all was force; and suddenly he would fall in a dump, and, forgetting himself, bless him and say Sic transit gloria mundi." Tidings that Naves was come in post from the Emperor abbreviated the dinner and made Mason take a short leave.
These men seem appalled; and yet the Emperor is not ready, for the 8,000 Spaniards from Naples, Sicily, Italy and Vienna cannot be soon here. He musters men near Reynsburge, and in two places in Bavare, and one in episcopatu Eichstetensi, and will probably make decrees in the absence of the Protestants from the Diet, and declare them contumaces, being roused by their absenting themselves and recalling their learned men and "disobeying of such processes as pass ex Camera." Naves is come to divide the Paltzgrave from them, who is so perplexed that Mason thinks it will kill him. Duke Philip has asked what to do with the King's captains, and Mason has told him that he may keep them for so long as he has hired them, but if employed against the Emperor they must not be named the King's servants. "We shall shortly know the quarrel that the Emperor will have against these men; and it is possible, if he have the upper hand of them, the Pope shall be one; but if they had not this obstinately refused, to come to him upon his often calling, I think assuredly he would not so soon been moved against them in respect only of him; and so think also a great many sober men of their own sort."

26 June. 1133. Hertford to Paget.
R. O. I wrote last that I meant to be here on Thursday last, (fn. n4) and to send soldiers to the Master of the Horse's camp; but the day was so rainy that we removed not until yesterday. Here I have working 1,200 or 1,300 soldiers. Afterwards, if the mole is made, as at my return I will show the King, "his Majesty never made such a piece of work or ever had such a thing for the Narrow Seas." I divided the work into twelve parts, and the captains drew lots for choice of them; and I have promised that those who have their portion first finished shall depart into England first. A trumpet sounds every morning at 4 o'clock, and within a quarter of an hour after a drum calls the men to work. Their names are then called and they work three hours. Likewise in the afternoon they work from 3 to 6 p.m., and every man receives his groat. They are so earnest to finish that some will work both day and night, and most of them will finish their parts within half the time I appointed; wherefore my trust is in you to expedite money hither that I may despatch them according to my promise. I have made shift among my friends here to pay them daily as they work. To-day I sent a like company to the Master of the Horse's camp, and will myself follow this afternoon and take like order for the work there, having left Lord Stourton with 400 men at the fort at Newhaven and the Spaniards encamped without the same; for whose despatch pray learn the King's pleasure. The agreement with them, as I signified by my brother, was to have free transportation to their own country with a fortnight's wages at embarking and another fortnight's at landing. Ships should be appointed. My brother sued for John Brigandyne to have a lieutenantship on this side the seas, and the King was so content. He has not been appointed to any place, and is a meet man to serve under Sir Richard Candishe, "the rather for that here shall be some works wherein he may do service." As James Wilforde is unwilling to serve as lieutenant of Base Bulloyne under Adrian Poynynges, I am required by Alexander Brett, whom Mr. Vice-chamberlain put to the King, to be a suitor for his appointment, who is a tall gentleman, "traded" in the wars and meet for that room. Forgot in last letters to signify that, in pursuance of your late letters, I declared the King's pleasure to Lord Graye and Sir John Bridges, who are most willing to serve; but the latter reminds me that the office of marshal needs some learning, and therefore, although desirous to serve, he could not undertake it without some learned man to advise him. His request is reasonable, and it were not amiss to appoint "some learned and discreet man or civilian" both to assist him and see to the better administration of justice in the town. Blacknesse, 26 June 1546. Signed.
P.S.—War is expected between the Emperor and the Protestants, and the Spaniards are said to hope to serve the Emperor therein. If so, the charge of their transportation may be saved; wherein, nevertheless, the King's pleasure should be known.

R. O. Has often signified to the King and Council that to Bartilmewe Compaigne is owing here, about 15 July, 6,000l. Fl. which certain of the Council bound themselves to pay in valued money;—asking whether to pay the debt, and what allowance to make for the valued money, of which the writer will have none. Begs Paget to remind them., as the day draws on apace. Hears no more of proceedings in Almayn. Much money has been taken up here for the Emperor in these wars. Almain merchants here are assured by the Queen that they and their wares shall be safe here notwithstanding the wars. Andwerp, 26 June.
P.S.—Pray take some pains with the account which I lately sent, wherein Mr. Chamberleyn was also a doer. The merchants of London have brought me bills of exchange payable at the end of this month, "but yet no order given me what I shall do with the money."

General letter, such as Barth. Fortini had, to mayors, &c., in favour of Hen. Crowne, skipper of a hulk of Lubeck, laden with grain, which was seized on the Cornish coast by English robbers who set the master and mariners adrift in the boat.

Foxe V.,
App. No. 16.
Acknowledges that when he promised to set forth and declare at Paul's Cross on the second Sunday after Easter the articles subscribed by him, he did not intend to do so with a simple mind but with a secret intention to colour his proceedings, so as to maintain his former evil opinion and yet satisfy his promise. The Mass used in this realm is agreeable to the institution of Christ, and we have in the Church of England the true Sacrament, the very body and blood of Christ under the form of bread and wine. It is not necessary that the Sacrament of the Altar be ministered to the people under both kinds, as in each kind "whole Christ, both body and blood, is contained." It is no derogation to the virtue of the Mass although the priest alone receive the Sacrament. All the articles which he subscribed and promised to declare at Paul's Cross are true, understanding by the word "Mass" therein the Mass daily used in the Church of England. Had no sufficient ground, of Scripture or holy author, for dissenting in any of the articles from the received doctrine of the Church of England, nor was fully satisfied in his own conscience. Being heretofore of a contrary opinion, he did not, according to his promise, plainly declare such doctrine as he had subscribed unto; and therefore he now submits himself to the King's clemency, desiring to make amends for his offence, both by setting forth the said articles and by disclosing to the King or Council all things concerning his proceedings.
[In § 3 here follows the note in Latin that on Sunday, 27 June 1546, Crome in his sermon at Paul's Cross recited in effect the above articles in presence of Lord Chancellor Wriothesley, Thomas duke of Norfolk, William Pawlett lord Seynt John, Edmond bishop of London, and many others.]
ii. "The articles whereunto I heretofore subscribed and promised to declare at Poules Crosse are these":—That the sacrifice by Christ offered on the Cross is available for the sins of all who in true belief come unto Him; and it is by virtue of Christ's word daily offered by the priest in the Mass as a remembrance, a propitiation, a sacrifice of praise, and a mean to obtain mercy both for quick and dead. God's word pronounced by the priest at Mass turns the bread and wine into the very body and blood of Christ, and so it remains although it be reserved and not distributed. This oblation or sacrifice by the priest is profitable both to the quick and to the dead, although it lieth not in the power of man to limit how far; for quick and dead make but one body, whereof Christ is the head, and "this article hath been taught and received in the Church of Christ even since th'Apostles' time." The Church of Christ may lawfully order some priests to be ministers of the Sacrament although they be not worthy to be admitted to preach.
[Here § 3 has the note in Latin that the above was recited by Crome in his sermon at Paul's Cross the second Sunday after Easter, viz., 9 May, 1546.]

R. O. Bearer, Courtpenink, being discharged here, desires to see the King. His honest service and the good governance of his whole band deserve commendation. With him come all his captains, as neither he nor they dare return through the Emperor's country, and they will go by sea out of England. Bearer tells me that, had he remembered in time, he would have conveyed his whole band either through France or by ship rather than through Flanders, and now such as were not already despatched by land he has embarked to pass by sea. They departed saying una voce as they came through the camp at Newhaven that they would serve the King before all other princes, and come 500 miles on their hands and knees to his service. Among the captains are two who might do the King good service hereafter. Brend or Brigandyne can tell you which they are; and if the King will show liberality amongst them, these two should be chiefly considered. Bulloyn, 27 June 1546. Signed.

R. O. On the 23rd, after much soliciting, got the Commissaries to assemble with them in the Chamber of Accounts here to peruse the books and registers of the customs of Brabant. A book of the payment of customs in the year 1432 was shown, but the amounts were only in gross, the customs being then put to farm. Another book of no less "auntientie" contained a table of customs then paid. A book of 1497 specified certain compositions by English merchants for leaving the toll unpaid. These books, they said, proved that the impositions complained of were not new. Asked for the tables delivered to such as gathered the toll of Brabant shortly after the granting of the privilege of Duke Philip and after the Intercourse of 1495. The Commissaries answered that no others were yet found, but those shown (which were all in Dutch) proved that "galegylt and such other be no new exactions or impositions"; as for the privilege and treaties, reasonable answer should be given. Desired that search should be made whether the King's subjects paid galegylt and other exactions, though they be old touching other nations; and indeed the secretary of the merchants says that there are tables declaring who are exempted from the said toll and who are not. The tollener of Andwerp was thereupon appointed, with the secretary of the English merchants (who understands Dutch), to search for them in the comptyng chamber of Andwerp. Send copy of the old general table in Dutch and English. Bruxelles, 27 June 1546. Signed.

R. O. Yesterday received a letter from the Council, of the 21st, and accordingly declared to President Schore how the treaty of peace mentions the comprehension of the Scots. The French ambassador resident here had informed the Regent that they were comprehended simpliciter, and she would, Schore said, be glad of this knowledge; she was forth a-hunting for two or three days, but he would advertise her speedily. She, however, because of a post yesternight from the countie of Buyr, returned here very early to-day. The countie with 10,000 footmen and 2,000 horsemen marches from Fryslande towards the land of Hasse shortly, and with him go Mons. de Haulstrate and Martyn van Rowse.

29 June. 1155. John Dymocke to Paget.
R. O. Since my last letters to you and the Council, here is such news out of Almayn that corn and victuals are restrained throughout Estland, by command of the Prodestantes, who are assured that the Emperor will have war with them, "according unto the copy here enclosed," given me by the chief borowe master here, named Dirick Vassemer, who bids me write that it is true, and that the whole religion of the Prodestans have sent word thereof to the King of Denemarcke that he may stop ships passing westward through the Sound, which is done. Here the "tromme" has gone about and proclamation is made that all horsemen and others who will serve the Religion come to the lords' house and they shall have entertainment as good as the Emperor gives. The king of Dennemarcke also musters all his countries and takes up men of war. Here and in Brownyswicke lande, and at Hamborowe and Lubecke, "are already many men ready, and more does come daily." The borowe master desired me to write to the King's Council for 560 footmen whom Courte Penyncke had hence to be sent home by water, at this city's charge; lest, coming through the Emperor's country, the Countie of Bures should keep them to serve against this country. The borowe master said that he had already written into England for this.
As yet only 60 last of wheat is gone to Newcastell, in two ships, and 18½ last to Calays. Another ship, which will take 24 last, finishes lading in three days. If not needed in England it would sell at Amsterdam to the King's advantage for 18l Fl. the last. The rest of the corn is stayed at Browinswicke, as Chr. Coke says, and I shall be fain to ride thither and recover my money from the lords there. I wrote to Mr. Watson to know what corn he received upon 100 last which he bought of Hendricke Kenkel, so as to "make clear" with Kenkel and Coke. If I had not come hither the King should have had neither corn nor money. Pray learn the King's pleasure in all things; and remember me concerning my trouble at Dorte.
The borowe master Wasemer has just come to say that Duke Mowryshe of Saxon was with the Emperor at Rynysborowe and refused either to serve against the Prodestants or to sit still; whereat the Emperor took great displeasure. Duke Morishe is gone home, and he and the Lantgrave, with Palesgrave Fredericke, are appointed to set forth with 7,000 horsemen and a great number of footmen against their enemies. Earl Crystofell of Oweldenborch had taken up 4,000 footmen and 1,500 horsemen to serve the Palesgrave in Densmarke, and these shall now serve the Prodestants together with 4,000 footmen and 1,000 horsemen whom the king of Denemarke had ready. The Prodestants will be ready before the Emperor "to do their feat, as they did with the Duke of Brownyswycke." Has no more time to write, as the company by whom he sends this letter is leaving. Brame, 29 June 1546.
P.S.—The Duke of Saxson is appointed, with the bishop of Colen, to keep about Colen with another company; "and this is true that I do write you."

R. O. 2. "This is the fearefull settynge fourthe of th'Emperor's armye agaynste the Fatherland."
The Emperor will himself set upon the Swabisschen kreys and the Lantgrave, that is to say upon the Prodestants, and has with him Maximilian, King Ferdinand's eldest son. The Bishop of Rome sends 22,000 Italians and Spaniards and 4,000 light horse called "Husserner horses," with whom come the duke of Camerin and other lords of Italy, and their mustering place is Sumfussen in Algow, the duke of Bayeren refusing to have it in his country. The duke of Bayre has prepared 1,800 horsemen only to prohibit musters in his country. Besides these the Emperor and Ferdinando bring 86 ensigns of footmen and 8,000 great horse armed in Alemayn fashion, and musters are appointed at Donawart, Trebbyngen, and a place appointed by Margrave Albert (not the margrave of Brandenborch) "in stifft of Wyrteborch." The lord Great Master of Dowche Lande shall bring 1,800 horsemen to serve the Emperor. Moreover, out of the Low Countries against the bishopric of Collan and land of Saxson goes the Countie of Buren with 4,000 horsemen, besides the garrisons, and 40,000 footmen, making up that number of "lanchekneghts," with men out of Friesland, Overyssells and Gelders, and Brabanders. The bishop of Rome has bound himself to help the Emperor with seven millions of gold; upon which he sends the 22,000 footmen and 4,000 horsemen. The bishops of Dowcheland, France, the Low Countries and Spain also help the Emperor with money, who, besides, brings up a great sum and spares no interest to set it by exchange where he wishes. The following prelates promise to provide him with victuals, viz., the bishops of Ausborch, Strassborch, Aichstadt, Wyrtborch, Bambarch, Meynse and Tryer.

For the fines of Swalowfeld and Shynfeld Mr. Litcot will make you answer. "I had an ill journey and foul weather. God send me good allowance at your hand." Redyng, 30 June 1546.

30 June. 1159. Hertford to Henry VIII.
R. O. My brother brought your command that I should send bearer, Sir Richard Candishe, with the platt of a mole that is to be made here, and which by your surveyor of Bulloyne, myself and others is thought the easiest to be made. It will do more service for keeping the Narrow Seas than all your havens on this side. Bearer will do good service in the making of it. Blacknesse, last of June 1546. Signed.

30 June. 1160. Hertford to Paget.
R. O. As I wrote lately, I was at Bulloyne and the Master of the Horse's camp on Sunday last. (fn. n5) I took order for the forwardness of that fort which will be guardable by the time appointed, my brother remaining there to advance it. It is bruited that the captainship thereof is "meant upon a man having nothing to live on in England." (fn. n6) My opinon is that one appointed to such a room (a goodly office and "as a castle to Bulloyne") should be a man who has somewhat to answer for it in England, as I would wish all the principal officers on this side to be. As I write this in discharge of my duty, pray use it so that such as have been suitors therein be not offended. This fort will be finished within less than ten days. Such a piece of work was never done with such a number in so short a time,—who labour day and night, trusting the sooner to be at home. Pray expedite money that they may be discharged according to my promise "or else I shall never be able to serve hereafter." As all who labour both here and at the Master of the Horse's camp, exceed not 2,400, and they were also the principal workers in making the fort at Newhaven, wherein they have spoilt and wasted all their apparel, the King might give them each a crown in reward to buy hose against their coming home. They deserve it, and have saved his Highness above 20,000l. Perceiving by my brother that the King appoints Mr. Bouchier lieutenant of the fort at Newhaven, I have placed him there. No one could better agree with my Lord Stourton. One Pole of Calais who has served in all the King's wars, in Ireland and elsewhere, these many years, for whom my lord Admiral when here sued to me, I beg you to get appointed gentleman porter of the fort at Newhaven.
The French king's ambassador to England will be tonight at Bulloyne, and tomorrow, Thursday, at Calais.
In last letters I forgot to advertise you of Mons. Brewno. He came to me on Friday last (fn. n7) at Newhaven, intending to pass home through Flanders, but, hearing of wars proclaimed between the Emperor and some of the Protestants, thought it safer to pass through France. He cannot too highly commend and extol the King "saying he had no other master nor would serve no other prince during his life"; and he requested to have Somerset the herald with him, by whom he might surely advertise the King within 18 or 20 days of the state of those parts. As I might well spare Somerset I granted the request. Blacknesse, last of June 1546. Signed.
