Yesternight I received your letters of the 22nd and this day those of the 23rd, with that in the King's own hand and another letter from the King to the French king; and now, being thus furnished, I intend to depart tomorrow towards Fountayn de Blewe where the Admiral will tarry my coming. Why he delays I cannot know, but last Saturday (fn. n1) the French king sent the baron de Lagarde who met me at Beaumount, with a letter from the French king and another from the Admiral (copies herewith), and credence to show intelligence out of Germany like that I have received from you, and to say that the King had despatched a post to his good brother, and the Admiral would start on Thursday or Friday next, embark at Rouen within two days, and three days later be at London. With him come Mons. de Tayes, Mons. de Brisack, Canaples and one other of the Order, but not in commission with him. Yesterday we arrived at Parrys, being met and banqueted at the abbey of Saynt Denys by Mons. de Morret. One league from Parrys Mons. de Lavall, one of the greatest inheritors in all France, met and accompanied us with 60 gentlemen, and later we were met by the provost of the merchants of the town and many burgesses on horseback. At our lodging was prepared a great supper and banquet, and today a dinner, all at the town's cost. Tonight Cardinal de Medon, whom I have not yet seen, banquets us in the Lovers, where shall be many ladies.
Tonight Moret promises to let me know the number of the Admiral's train, the day that he will be at Rouen, and whether he enters the Thames or lands at Dover. I will show the Admiral the order taken for his conducting into the Thames, a dangerous place without good pilots. It will be a day or two ere we depart hence, as the King is not returned to Fountayn de Blewe, where the house is being put in order to make us great cheer. Our next common letters shall advertise the King of our first access. Parrys, in haste, 26 July 1546.
Mr. Knyvet excuses his slackness by the posts, who have not done as they ought and are to be punished. Signed.

Recognisance of John Barues, of Collombstoke, Hen. Walrande, of Oscombe, Robt. Oughby and Ric. Goodall for Goodall's appearance when required by the Court of Admiralty about claims made against him by Nicholas Goethius of Antwerp, and Victor Tarling and John Skevin, of Bruges, for goods taken from them during the late wars (signed by Barohowse, Walrond and Goodall). This day the Deputy and Chancellor of Ireland were brought face to face and after long altercation "dismissed till another season." Hulle, customer of Exeter, discharged from daily appearance upon his promise to abide the order of the Court of Admiralty in the matter between Fursman and him. Sir Thomas Hennage, gentilman of the Privy Chamber, declaring the King's respite for Robert Songate, lately condemned in Suffolk for robbery of a church, obtained letters to Sir Edm. Windeham, the sheriff, to certify what crimes were laid to his charge.

After my despatch to you yesterday, arrived the baron de Lagard from the Admiral, who sets forth on Monday next. Enclosed are the names of the greatest personages with him. He means to be at Roan upon Wednesday come sevennight, embark next day and come along the seas into Thames. I showed the Baron, who has charge of the galleys, the order for his reception in the Downs and providing with pilots, whereof he is glad. There will be twelve or fourteen galleys, and they bring no horses—only certain mules to give away. He reckons that the Admiral will be at London within three days from Rouen. The Cardinal of Medon made us great cheer last night, with meat and drink and good company of ladies and gentlewomen, but the plays and pastime were spoilt by the crowd. The Cardinal excused it by the "devotion the people had to see the Englishmen which came with so joyful news unto them." Morret, who attends us most gently and painfully, advises us to stay here this day; and tomorrow we shall meet the King, "where he has promised to show us pastime of hunting, and so to Fountayn de Bleau." City of Parrys, 27 July 1546. Signed.
P.S. in his own hand.—The points of your former letters are mostly answered. What lacks shall be supplied by the next. As the Admiral tarries so long as till Monday we shall be ready to depart home soon after.

Information from Turin, forwarded to the Emperor by Fernando de Gonzaga.
France unlikely to make war this year, if only for lack of money and soldiers and the lateness of the season. Moreover, difficulties with England are not settled; an instalment of the money due to England must be paid by next Christmas and Boulogne is to be restored in six or eight years. It will never be given back. England offers France both Boulogne and Calais to support the marriage of his son with the daughter of Scotland. If France accepts, then Scotland will be united to England and they will together be a danger to France; for what keeps England weak is that France can always raise war on the Scottish border. On the other hand, if the marriage does not take place it will be evidently the work of France, and war will recommence. France will therefore avoid a rupture with the Emperor unless the Lutherans offer large subsidies of money. With money he might think himself strong enough, with the Turk's help. 27 July 1546.
28 July. 1355. Carne to Paget.
R. O. Since his letter of the 19th, by Treffrye, the Lord Chancellor's servant, a post has brought from the Emperor's Court news of the arrival of 4,000 footmen and 2,000 horsemen, Italians, to the Emperor at Ratysbone, and the near approach of the rest of the Italians,—they having passed by the Almaynes who durst not attack them. Here is great preparation for the army of the Countye du Buyr, with whom go almost all the nobility and gentlemen of the Emperor's dominions here. Tomorrow he marches from Mastrycke towards Aes, and so towards Colongne. Here it is only said that the Protestants are strong. Bills are said to have been cast abroad in divers towns of Germany "to exhort the common people for the Protestants." Sends a copy taken from one brought to his host, being burgomaster of this town.

Ran to Blomefyld's house and fetched his book "to set the weather." "Then, said Blomefyld, the worst is I shall needs destroy part of the house here. Sir, quoth John, what will you do with this little child here? Mary! saith he, I would that he were away. And so I carried him to Father Beste's house. And when I came again I did promise him as I did before; and whiles all things were a preparing to be done, Mr. Secretary Pagget came in unto him, and so prevented the matter."

29 July. 1361. Vaughan to the Council.
R. O. Begs to know whether at the Fugger's day, which draws fast on, to begin paying the money now in his hands. Jasper Dowche still seeks by prayers and offers of interest to get it beforehand, and tells Vaughan that the King has prolonged a great portion of the Fugger's debt and bargained to take a certain quantity of copper, for which bargain Dowche expects brokerage as having first broken the matter to Vaughan here. Has not yet received all the money from the King's merchants due the last of June. Traffic into Almayn being stopped by this war, they have much ado to get money, and above 20 have not yet paid; but he expects to receive all within 6 or 8 days. If the Council have appointed any to make payments in August he fears that they will find it hard "to keep their day."
A company of Italians and Spaniards, taken up here to serve the Emperor against the Protestants, went hence on foot about fourteen days ago, and, "doing certain outrages amongst the boores and payzans of the country," have been mostly slain or hurt in the land of Guligh. Mons. de Bure still lingers in these countries. Some say that he has not nearly so many men as was bruited, some that he has no money: "but that I believe not, seeing the wars are not yet begun." An Englishman that came out of Selande has informed me that a herald of Scotland and a gentleman of these parts despatched from the Lady Regent's court are awaiting wind to go into Scotland. Being unable to receive the merchants' money alone, or pay it when the day comes, has got Mr. Damesell to help. The Count de Bure lately took a young man who served Mr. Wyat at Bulleyn and came hither to serve in the Emperor's wars on foot, giving him three men's wages, 12 Philippus gilderns a month. His name is Tottishurst. Jasper Dowche can get no money here for the Emperor and therefore would fain have mine. The moneyed merchants here have made theirs away to Lyons and Venyce. I must know what money you appoint to be paid, 15 Aug., to the Fugger, so as to recover the obligations as it is paid, — unless you have appointed the strangers to look to it. The Almayns cannot resist the Emperor if his Italians and Spaniards were come to him; "for the one is poor and the other hath gone abouts more than a year to gather into his hands all the money of Almayn. Wherefore it is to be thought there will be some agreement." Andwerp, 29 July.

30 July. 1365. Lisle and Wotton to Henry VIII.
R. O.
St. P., xi. 253.
On Tuesday last, 27th inst., we departed from Parrys accompanied by Morret and others. At the Vile Neff Saynt George (being half way to Corbell) the Cardinal of Medon awaited our coming, with a collation. There Mr. Knyvet fell sore sick and one of the King's physicians was sent to him. Thence the Cardinal brought us to Corbell, where one of the King's "master dotells" had prepared our supper. There my lord of Duresme was constrained to tarry, having hurt his leg with a fall of his horse. Next morning the Cardinal and Morret brought us to a place in the forest of Corbell where the King made assembly for hunting; and we were met by Mons. de Lavale and the Admiral's son and Brisack who conveyed us to a village where the King was. The King had dined, and dinner was prepared for us; after which the Admiral and others came and brought us to the King, in an arbour made with boughs. After salutations, he took me, the Admiral, by the hand and led me to a window. Describes interview, in the course of which the King read Henry's letters and encouraged Lisle by praising his French. He said that he would give his oath on Sunday next (fn. n4) and his Admiral should leave on Monday. He then said I should go with him "to see a hart killed of force." I desired him merrily to spare either Mr. Wotton or me, for yesterday we were four in commission and now but two were left and if we broke legs or arms with "running the hart of force" none of us would be left to wait upon him. He laughed, and said that he would spare Mr. Wotton, whom he gently embraced, saying that he was glad his good brother had chosen so honest a man to reside with him. Afterwards he caused me to kiss the ladies there, who also rode a hunting with him upon great curtalls. "He leapt upon his mule and went towards his pastime, and killed a hart with force of hounds exceedingly well. Himself did not follow but kept the cross ways. The Dolphyn spared not thick nor thin. And while the hart was a killing the King lighted at a fountain where he had his wine and fruit." Meanwhile the Admiral and I walked up and down in a field, devising of the new fort at Boulloign Broke, your fortifying of which was, he said, contrary to the treaty. This matter held us till the King was departed, and finally we fell to the matter of payment, in which he wished that you would grant a shorter day,—if I would not commune of it, did I think he might break it to your Majesty? I reminded him how that matter was debated before, and how their request was like to have impeded the treaty, which your Majesty meant to perform in every part, and which I had no commission to alter or discuss; and, as he desired me to be frank, I told him that I would not wish him to move your Majesty in that behalf. He said that he would make speed to Rouen, which he reckoned five days from hence; and from Rouen he reckoned to be in Thames in three days. And he asked whether I would go to Callayes or Boulloign, or else in the galleys with him, or in the Sakre, which was taken by the galleys, and which his master would restore. Thanking him, I said that three or four of your Majesty's vessels awaited me at Calais, and for other affairs I must return that way; but the Sacre I neither accepted nor refused. They seem to look for as good or better restitution. Thus I broke off with him and followed the King to the death of the hart; and so to Mellune, two leagues from the hunting place. The King made me ride with him through the town, devising of the pleasures of the country about Fountay[n d]e Bloye, so that the ambassadors of the Emperor, bp. of Rome and others might see the amity he bears to your Highness. That night I supped with him and was brought to the Admiral's lodging to make ready. Today he removes to Fountayn le Bleau, by the way hunting the wild boar in toils. He had appointed me to see it, but I must attend to this despatch. Melune, 30 July 1546. Signed.

30 July. 1366. Diego Hurtado de Mendoza to Charles V.
viii., No. 299.
Report of his mission to Venice to express the Emperor's displeasure at rumours of the Signory's negociating with Lutherans and Turks, in the course of which he states that the Protestants and the King of England's agents in Venice prompt the Signory to distrust the Emperor. (Note to this: To speak to the English ambassador at Ratisbon about this Secretary and complain of Ludovico dalle Arme; and to write the ambassador in England about it.) Venice, 30 July 1546.
ii. Credence to Capt. Pero Diaz de Corcuera, who carried the above letter, to say, among other things, that the English agent and Ludovico delle Arme, "a light man with little brains and no goodwill," seek to make a league between the Signory, England and France, promising on behalf of England the friendship of the Protestants, and on behalf of France that of the Turk. They propose either to get the Signory to send an ambassador to England or to deal through Francisco Bernardi, a Venetian gentleman who intervened in the peace negociations between France and England and has 1,200 ducats a year from England. Suspects that Bernardi was encouraged in the said negociations by the Signory; for all Venetians are timid, and he is heir to 30,000 cr. They also wish the King of England to nominate Ludovico delle Arme as his ambassador here. The above intelligence as regards embassies comes from Ludovico himself, and Mendoza communicated it to the Signory and announced his authority either to warn them (as was done when Cardinals Grimano and Ferrara came hither) against entering any league against the Emperor or to hinder it if anything was already done. Divulged the trick which Lodovico had played them in giving this intelligence to the Cardinal (without indicating his Eminence) that they might give the fool less credit and punish him if they liked. Suspects that the secretary or agent of England here does mischief about Fernando de Gonzaga. It may be well to write to the Ambassador in England about him. Has often assured the Emperor that the Signory cannot hurt him, for they have neither men, money nor victuals. All they do proceeds from fear; and if they could deal secretly they are capable of any villany. But they trust neither Turks nor Frenchmen, because they see the Emperor informed of everything, and they distrust the Lutherans because they see that in this enterprise the Emperor has the concurrence of some of them. Has to leave again for Trent. Begs for a knighthood for a relative who has served the Emperor. Venice, 30 July 1546.

"given to Julio de Romero, Spaniard, towards his furniture against the combat with Moro, Spaniard, who fled from the King's service." Mr. Godsalve had warrant to —— (blank) for 22½ oz. of fine gold and 26s. 8d. for making, in recompense of his chain which the King gave to Sir Francis Barnerde.
31 July. 1368. The Privy Council to Lisle.
R. O. The King is credibly informed that, albeit the Scots have embraced the peace and caused it to be proclaimed, as his Majesty has done on his borders, they prepare a power against him on pretence of recovering certain small holds taken from them during the wars. If they do, his Majesty must resist; and, desiring that things should not come to that extremity "unless there shall be a determination of breach of the peace on their part," his Highness has appointed your Lordship, with the rest in commission with you, to declare the premises to the French king—and to the Admiral if he be not departed; saying that like as his Majesty means to do nothing without provocation, so, if they do otherwise than the treaty purports, he doubts not but that his good brother will refuse to aid them against him, and let them know now beforehand that he will suffer the King and them to try the wars together which they thus go about to renew.

31 July. 1371. Mary of Hungary to Vander Delft.
viii., No. 300.
Since writing on the 22nd ult. has received his of the 6th and 21st inst. As to the intercourse, the English ambassador and the special envoy sent hither are urgent for a conclusion, as if wishing to settle the matter here before dealing with Councillor Van der Burgh. Has given instructions not to hurry the business, so that Van der Delft may press for a settlement of the points raised by him, reminding the English that when Van der Burgh arrived in London he was kept a long time waiting upon the excuse that they were busy with the war, and he has been too long there already. Cannot yet learn the truth about the inclusion of the Scots, who continue to treat the Emperor's subjects as enemies; and she has had to send Secretary Strick to Scotland. As the period within which the Scots were to make their declaration is expired, Van der Delft must ask again whether there is peace, and whether Flanders is included, and get the details of the agreements made with the Scots. These can hardly be withheld, as the Emperor's quarrel with the Scots is solely on the English account, and the treaty provides that such particulars should be communicated. Several of the Emperor's subjects, gentlemen of Artois, are asking how to recover their estates in the Boulognais, now that the war is ended. Van der Delft shall ask the Council for the conditions of the peace touching this question, so that the gentlemen may know how to proceed. Will be glad if, on this or other pretext, he can procure a copy of the treaty with France. Encloses news from Germany as contained in letters from Augsburg and sent from the Imperial ambassador in France.
As to the Admiral of France's affirmation that the Scots were included in the peace of Crepi, subsequent events proving the contrary ought to prevail over the words of Frenchmen. It was after the peace that the Scottish secretary, Paniter, was here, seeking to see the Emperor to claim inclusion for the Scots, and, being refused audience and shown the clauses of the treaty, made great ado about it to the French ambassador. The latter first insisted that the inclusion was agreed upon verbally, but was flatly contradicted by the Viceroy and Granvelle; then he maintained that the inclusion was implied in the confirmation of previous treaties, and this was shown to be unfounded; and thirdly he contended that the treaty bound the Emperor to include the Scots at the demand of the king of France, which was proved to be untrue. The Admiral of France being afterwards at Bruges endeavoured to take up the same ground; but was at once silenced by Granvelle, and told that, even at the risk of breaking off negociations, the Scots would not be included without the consent of the king of England. This may be confidentially told to Paget.
As to the complaints of illtreatment of English merchants at Antwerp, she can only say that she never heard of it. On the contrary, a burgess there has been executed for violence against an Englishman. Italian and Spanish soldiers from the English camp who were misbehaving there have been sent away. Will punish any who speak disrespectfully of the king of England; but Van der Delft may tell the Council that people on the English frontier are speaking evil of the Emperor, saying they hope soon to have war with him, but as she knows that this does not proceed from the King she takes no notice of it. The French are spreading a rumour that a German gentleman (fn. n5) sent by the Protestants to the king of England told their King that England had agreed to help the Protestants against the Emperor, moved merchants to whom he owed 400,000 cr. to allow that sum to be lent to the Protestants, and wished an interview with France in order to concert plans against the Emperor. Does not believe any of this; but it may be secretly communicated to Paget, letting him know that she has no doubt of the King's goodwill, whatsoever the French may say. Brussels, 31 July 1546.

Cannot yet learn how the Scots are comprehended in the peace between France and England, nor the other particulars of that peace. Requires him to scent out what he can of these particulars, and if possible obtain a copy; for the secrecy with which it is kept by both sides makes her presume that it contains something to the Emperor's prejudice. * * * Bruxels, 31 July 1546.
31 July. 1373. Vaughan to the Council.
R. O. This day, towards night, received their letters with three bills of exchange, a letter of Dymoke's and other letters concerning 18 lasts of corn laden by him from Breame and now stayed at Camphire, and a packet for Sir Edward Caern, the King's ambassador. Will follow their instructions in paying the Fugger and others. Has appointed an experienced person to repair tomorrow morning towards Camfyre for discharge of the arrest; but will first consider the prices of corn at Calles and here, so as to sell it where it is worth most. Expects that it will sell better here, as the bringing of corn hither from Estlande is prohibited.
A merchant of Almayn has just said that the Landisgrave of Hesse and duke of Wyrtzenbergh are gone with 40,000 men towards Bavaria to meet the Emperor, spoiling by the way the bishop of Wyrtzberghe and another bishop. The Emperor's wellwishers here seem to fear that he cannot match the Protestants.
"This day, since noon, what news soever be come, men wax sad and mistrust things greatly." Bearer's hasty departure prevents further writing. Andwerp, last of July.
P.S.—"Like as your Lordships write, I stick with the King's merchants to receive of them money that I cannot pay out again." They would pay in new angels and new crowns, which here none but Englishmen will take. They have paid mostly in white money, which is good, though painful to receive and pay.
I hear that some of them are appointed to pay me money in September, whereas the King is bound to pay on 15 Aug., and they will have much ado to get in their money by that day, "seeing here is little money stirring." All moneyed merchants here have conveyed theirs away to Venyce and Lyons, fearing to lend to the Emperor lest he should be unsuccessful in these wars.
Hol., pp. 3. Add. Endd.: 1546.
31 July. 1374. Vaughan to Paget.
R. O. Has written often to the Council asking whether on 15 Aug. to begin paying the Fugger money received of the King's merchants. Would also know how much to pay, what appointment is taken for prolonging payments, and what shall be done about recovering the obligations. "I pray you let me know, or else I were as good go hide my head in a hole. If your letters come not with diligence, the Fugger's day will be come ere your answer shall come."
Here is no certainty of the wars in Almayn, merchants' letters from thence being intercepted; but the Protestants are reported to have 100,000 men and to be too strong for the Emperor, against whom "the Almayns are in a wonderful heart." If the Emperor have the worst, then Turk, French king, Almaynes, Danes, Napolytanes, Moors, and all the world will turn against his countries. This is the weightiest war he ever took in hand.
Has bought a "pretty conceit" for Paget, to be sent by next ships. Encloses a letter from Dymok out of Breame. "I thank you most heartily for my poor wife. She writeth to me that my Lady entertained her with much gentleness." Andwerp, 31 July.
P.S.—Wrote to the Council two days past that about 20 of the merchants of London had not yet paid. Since then they come in apace and all will be paid within these 15 days. They have much ado to get money, for here is no traffic, and the monied men have sent their money to Lyons and Venyce lest the Emperor should take it, to whom they are loth to trust it till they see how he shall speed.
Hol., pp. 3. Add. Endd.: 1546.
31 July. 1375. Vaughan to Paget.
R. O. A merchant resident here, and born at Wyrtzbergh in Almayn, told me he today had letters from thence signifying that the duke of Saxon had taken the bishoprics of Wyrtzberghe and Banberghe from those bishops. Here is silence as to the wars, no news either of Emperor or Protestants. The merchants' letters which are wont to come out of Almayn hither every Sunday or Monday are not yet come and are thought to have been intercepted. Pray remember my account, and that I am not at home to set it forward. Andwerp, last of July.
P.S.—I have yet no commandment to pay the Fugger when his day shall come, which will be within these 15 days.

As desired, I send you by waggon, in a little dry ffat wherein go two silver pots made for you by Mr. Damesell, 17¼ Fl. ells of black velvet and 16 Fl. ells of black damask, respectively at 13s. and 6s. the ell. I marvel that you buy silk here, where is neither so good choice as in London, nor is it so good cheap, "the money considered." Your silk cost 16l. 3d. Fl. for which, if you send me money, let it be neither in new crowns nor new angels. I have now much money to be paid here for the King, and would fain have you send it in such money as I can pay again, or else I must take it up by exchange which goes now "very evil."
Cannot learn what is done in Almain. Letters were wont to come thence every Sunday or Monday, but, for these 14 days, none are come. "Some say th'Italians, passing out of Italy by the Streightes, encountered with th'Almayns and slew v. or vje. of them, but there is no such news in the Court." Andwerp, 31 July.
