November 1546, 21-30

21 Nov. 428. Sir Robert Bowes to the Council.
R. O. By their late letters to Lord Eure and him, perceives that the King would know what incourses the Scots have made since 7 June last. About 7 July last, some 16 Scots of Jedworth Forest burnt two or three houses of the Mylbornes in Tyndaill, the inhabitants being absent at their summer sheils, with intent to train the Tyndaills to a 'bushment of 100 men upon the Waste near Reides heid. The same week 50 men of Tyviotdaill burnt a town called Tharnam on the water of Cokkett in order to draw the countrymen and garrisons to a 'bushment of 160 men upon the waste land near Coklawe. The same night 30 Scots, of the Trombles, burnt the house of Geoffrey Robsone and cruelly murdered the said Geoffrey, one of the head men and best ordered of Tyndaill, in order to train the Tyndailles to a bushment near Kemelspethe upon the Waste. All these incourses were made after the French ambassador passed into Scotland to intimate the peace; and on the morrow or next day after the two last attemptates, the peace was proclaimed at Jedworth, Kelso, Hawicke and along the Middle Marches. However, Bowes re-acquited the said attemptates upon the doers of them in Tevydaill. Gedworth Forest and among the Trombles on the water of Rowll; and then, on 17 July, being the latter fair day at Anwicke, proclaimed the peace there and all "endlonge" the frontier in his charge. Since then has been quietness and good truce kept, and no incourses except by thieves in small numbers, except that 10 Scots of Tevidaill, in September, entered the King's park of Hwll and cruelly hurt a poor man, "harbinger of the same," and took away two or three nags, and at the day of truce " the offenders (according to the accustomed manner of the Scots) by perjury acquit themselves." The Scots are so impoverished by the war "that they give themselves much to cloak theft" with perjury, for which some strait order should be taken with the ambassadors of Scotland.

21 Nov. 429. Privy Council of Scotland.
Meeting at St. Andrews, 21 Nov. Present: bps. of Dunkeld and Galloway, earl of Cassillis, abbots of Cupar and Dumfermling, lords Ruthven, Simple, Lindesay and Byris, Sir John Campbell, Clerk Register, Justice Clerk, Advocate. Business:—Orders taken between Dame Marion Setoun, countess of Eglintoun, and Sir Neil Montgomery.
21 Nov. 430. Thirlby to Paget.
St. P., xi. 350. Encloses copy of his letter of the 14th inst., sent to Mr. Wotton in the French ambassador's packet, reporting the departure of the Duke of Saxony from the Lansgrave; but he has since learnt that the Duke remains here. Was visited yesterday by Secretary Joyse who offered to forward a letter, as they were sending into Flanders within two days; and was told how the King of Romans has recovered all lands that the late elector of Saxony "(now, said he, Mauritius is elector)" held of Bohemia in fief, and Mauritius has also gotten much of the late Elector's country. He added that the Emperor was sending to his Ambassador to give the King all the news. Thirlby said that the King would be glad to hear of the Emperor's success. Joyse replied that the Emperor "took it so" and had great confidence in the King, to whom he "bore again no less good will," and therefore had released the arrest in Spain, under caution, as requested by the Council; the order was sent into Spain 15 days ago, and the Ambassador had doubtless informed the King of it ere this.
"Copie of the cyphre':—Guesses that Joyse came to Tilling to speak with the French ambassador. There is some practice which perhaps Mr. Wotton may learn, as "France is more opener than this Court." Two French couriers have been here since Somerset left, and within a month before that a French courier was here, returned and came again; and at every time the French ambassador spoke with the Emperor. Wrote on the 11th inst., by letters which Grandevela promised to send, how Grandevela said that the French King moved certain marriages but nothing more was granted than "when we were at Bruges." The only reason for putting such a trifle in cipher is to practise his hand. Tillinge, 21 Nov. 1546.
Almost forgot, with his ciphering, to say that for two days has been a great bruit that the Lantzgrave seeks safe-conduct to come and submit to the Emperor's mercy—or, if the Emperor will not admit him, to meet with the Marquis of Brandenburghe and County de Bures. Joyse said that the Lantzgrave had indeed caused a friend of Marquis Haunse of Brandenburghe to write to him to make means for peace; the Emperor hoped for good success, and Norling and another small town had surrendered. Has learnt otherwise that a friend of the said Marquis in the Lantzgrave's camp has so written. The Emperor continues very near the Lantzgrave, about four English miles hence. Such good weather at this season has not been seen these hundred years. It rains sometimes and there are foul mists and cold nights, but not the snow and frost which is wont to kill both man and beast "being forth of doors"

St. P., xi. 352.
In last letters, of the 9th inst., wrote that Maurice duke of Saxony remained quiet and the Bohemians refused to go outside their own kingdom. Maurice has since broken the league between the Elector of Saxony and him handed down by their ancestors, and, at the bidding of the Emperor and King of Romans, has seized the cities and lands where the silver and copper mines are which were common between him and the Elector, and proceeds to the capture of places belonging to the other, feigning that he is compelled to this by the Emperor. Sends copy of a letter from Maurice to the Elector partly excusing this war and partly declaring war. All the Protestants wrote to him to desist at this most troubled time from his enterprise; but he goes from bad to worse, for he is young and rather hasty than wise, and his chief councillors more eager for the rewards of the Emperor and King of Romans than for the public good, and they retain within them the undigested remains of the Papistical superstition of this man's uncle George. The Bohemians also invaded the Elector's province adjoining Bohemia, where the Hussars (Hosserni), who formed the majority of the Bohemian army, killed over 200 horse and 2,000 foot, and then retired. Many believe that this was done to give Maurice a pretext for invading the Elector's territory, which is now destitute of soldiery as he took almost all the nobility and men of war with him against the Emperor. This defection of Maurice is the work of one by whose promises and artifices many nobles in Germany are deceived; for if all those who embrace and profess the Religion aided their allies it would be impossible for the Emperor to overcome it, and now when he finds the difficulty of abolishing this doctrine and restoring the Roman bishop he pretends that he never had any thought of abolishing the Religion. The armies of both Emperor and Protestants are still in camp less than a German mile apart. There are daily skirmishes but nothing memorable. The Emperor wished to winter his forces in the Duchy of Wirtemberg, but the others resist; for the loss of this Duchy, which has provided almost all the supplies this summer, would much injure the Protestants. The clergy of Cologne use every artifice to depose their bishop, who now sends a manifesto (libellum) to the Emperor, King of Romans and all the other Princes and States in which he gives the cause both of the reformed religion and of the abolition of the Roman bishop, and openly professes that he will persist in the religion which he has undertaken. It is to be feared that the Emperor will restore the Bishop of Rome throughout Germany and subject the Empire to himself; for our dissensions give opportunity to other men, and I do not see where the Protestants are any longer to get money for this war.

Lat. Hol., pp. 3. Add. Endd.: Mr. Mount.
24 Nov. 439. Mont to Paget.
R. O. Nothing of moment has occurred since he last wrote except Maurice's invasion of the lands of the absent Elector, which, for its abomination, was at first not generally believed, and therefore Mont dared not write of it. The Saxon remains with the Protestant army, but has ordered Bernard van Mela to defend his territory, who is assembling horse and foot and has over 2,000 horse with him. The maritime cities are said to offer footmen. The King of France sends frequent messengers to the army of the Protestants, who count much upon him. Has received no letters from the bp. of Westminster, although it is almost a month since the writer's servant left the Emperor's camp. Both armies remain in the field, neither willing to give place to the other. Prisoners report that the Emperor promises a month's pay to his men, provided that they stay three days longer in camp than the others. Many soliders on both sides die of the cold and many more desert. The Emperor is certainly the stronger in horsemen. There is no word yet where they will winter.
Commendations to Dr. Peter. "Datum 24 Novemb. Oxonie anno 1546." Signed: Bergottus. (fn. n1)

24 Nov. 440. Mont to Mason.
R. O. Thanks for friendly letters and books lately received. No new books are now issued here where all minds are occupied with war. Had the usual fairs been held here, would sent paper, through the Cologne merchants, as appointed. With this civil war all arts of peace are interrupted, for the Spanish and Italian soldiery seizes and burns everything both of friends and foes. Begs to be commended to Duke Philip, if in England. The Emperor's men have devastated the lands of his brother and him, as Mont has seen, burning several villages and murdering the men. They sacked the beautiful citadel in Neuberg. Begs him to ask Mr. Bucler's help that Scilt, the factor, may obtain the writer's diets now long overdue. Knows that treasurers need stimulating, and begs Mason to help therein. Commendations to his patron Sir John Godsalve. Remember also the money for sending letters. Is sorry to hear that war is renewed between the King and Scotland. The King's letters to the bp. of Westminster in the cause of Mr. Hill I myself delivered to the ambassador. We appointed that he should write to me, by way of Nuremberg, as soon as possible, and this is now the fourth week that I await the answer. Francfort, 24 Nov. '46. Not signed, but subscribed: Tuus quern nosti.
Lat. Hol., p. 1. Add.: French Secretary. Endd: Mr. Mount to Mr. Mason.
24 Nov. 441. Mont to Bucler.
R. O. Has not written for a long time, having nothing important to write. No new books are here published in Latin, and those in German would not interest him. All things are afflicted by this war to which no one can see an end; and the wandering soldiery kill all men and burn all houses for no other cause than to exterminate religion. The Spaniards have only this one word Luther, Luther. Letters are found upon many of them of indulgence for all their acts provided that they fall in this war against the heretics; "stupra, adulteria, raptus, cædes, incendia, præclara ab eis facinora reputantur quia in excommunicatos et hereticos committuntur qui Romanum Episcopum agnoscere et adorare nolunt." Both armies lose men and animals by the cold. Many Spaniards and Italians desert and are killed both by the Emperor's horsemen and ours, for the Emperor has proclaimed that fugitives from his army are a prey to anyone. Less than a German mile separates the two armies, and in the daily skirmishes great men on the Emperor's side fall, such as Dominus Doccron, master of the imperial house, Barbonson, and others.
Begs help for his factor Schilt to obtain his diets. Supposes him now happy with an honest wife. These troubles in Germany admit of no joy. Commendations to Mr. Denny (Deneo). Francfort, 24 Nov. '46. Not signed, but subscribed: Tuus quern nosti.

No. 61.
The bp. of Ross, one of the Scottish ambassadors, came yesterday to relate their audience with the King on Sunday last. When the ambassadors said that their mission was to present the acceptation of the comprehension clause the King angrily told them that the comprehension was granted with conditions which the Scots had contravened, and they were false people and he would be revenged. He refused to hear their defence and remitted them to his Council. They desire Selve to be present at their audience with the Council, as also does this King, as appears by Paget's answer (copy enclosed). The bp. of Ross thinks this King determined to make war on the Scots, who feared him little if he did not bring others than Englishmen against them. The King of France could, they say, do more damage to this realm through Scotland for 200,000 cr. than in any other place for a million. On behalf of the Queen Dowager and Governor of Scotland he asked Selve to represent their great need of gunpowder, as they could now obtain none from Flanders because of their war with the Flemings. He confirmed the report here of an insurrection in Ireland (which is said to be much greater than those here dare admit), and said that if the Governor of Scotland would only let the Scots of the Isles help the Irish, who were daily soliciting it, their enterprise would be easy; and then if this King began war in Scotland he would be much hampered on the side of Ireland.
Sends details of the war preparations to the Admiral. London, 25 Nov., 1546.
25 Nov. 444. Selve to the Admiral [of France].
No. 62.
The young gentleman of whom he wrote on the 18th has been twice to see him, first to borrow money and then to take leave. His story was that his father sent him to see the country, with four servants and 400 cr., but, in the forest, soldiers of Hardelot robbed him of horses and money. Afterwards Mons. de Ryou lent him 10 cr., and he came over here. Told him that it seemed strange to come here where he knew no one with four servants and no money; and offered to give him lodging and send an express man to his home, saying that when it was known who he was he should have money and a letter to the Maréchal du Biez for justice upon the soldiers who had robbed him. This offer he declined, saying that he was advised to return home and furnish himself and then come back to see this Court and country ; he did not fear the sea. Asked him if he had not seen N. (fn. n2) here. He answered that he disliked and avoided him, although N. (fn. n2) had followed him to his lodging and boasted of great entertainment here, with many fine promises if he would stay. He soon let him know that he was not welcome. Selve said that he should have pretended to listen to the said promises, and thus might have discovered something for the King's service or obtained letters to be carried into France. He replied that he was very sorry that he had taken leave of N. (fn. n2) and could not speak with him again without arousing suspicion; but he hoped to return at Christmas, and would know what he was about and see if the King would give him 1,000 cr., like the servant who revealed N.'s (fn. n2) brother. Told him that he, a gentleman, ought to expect another present than was given to a servant; and asked whom he knew in the King's Court. His reply was that he had not been there, and had only just left school where he had lost his time. In taking leave he said that he was returning into France with a little jeweller of Paris named Pierre, and would in passing see if Mons de Ryou would help him to recover his money that was stolen. Yesterday morning he sent two servants with a letter (herewith) to borrow 6 cr. Told the servants that it was strange that their master should ask for 6 cr. after refusing much greater offers; he did not know whether their master had written or signed the letters. This morning only one of the young man's servants remained in his lodging, who said that his master was gone to the Court of the King of England, 15 or 16 miles from this, and would soon be back to return into France by Boulogne. The gentleman calls himself son of a gentleman of Normandy named Mesdany and relative of the baillif of Alençon.
To-day N. (fn. n2) came, without being called, and, after new offers of service, although this King gives him 1,400 cr. yearly, suggested discovering things of great importance; saying that this King had news from France by persons of the King's Council whom he would name, and he would furnish signed letters and ciphers by which such things should be verified; everyone who came here offering service was welcomed although most of them were men who could do nothing. Asked him if he knew the young gentleman in question. He said Yes, he was the son of M. de Medany, a worthy gentleman, but was the tool of crafty and wicked persons who made him play a role they dared not play themselves; it were well to make his father arrest him there for having run away, and then all he knew could be drawn from him; it was necessary, however, to proceed carefully, for at the least suspicion he would be killed here. N. (fn. n2) had given 100 cr. on this King's behalf to the young man, who insisted on speaking with the King in person, but being sent by N. (fn. n2) to Lartigue and by the latter to Paget, he was told that Paget did not keep this King in his sleeve. The young man is handsome, fair, beardless, and wears a sailor's coat made of those long haired mantles which are barred in divers colours, and a black velvet cap.
For the war against Scotland next spring this King is already assured of 12,000 lansquenets, 2,000 Clevois horse and 1,500 Albanois, and in his own country there are about 40,000 parishes, each of which will be able to furnish at least one man. He has set merchants to buy much grain in Denmark to be brought to the Scottish frontier, where he is making great provision of cattle and salt meat. Many think that at sea the Flemings will join the English against Scotland. There is great work upon the fortifications of the Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and the Isle of Anglesea. which lies towards Scotland. N. (fn. n2) assured him that as to the above preparations 12,000 Almains was quite impossible and that this King had been able to get only 1,700 or 1,800 horse, by means of Ringrave, who was lately here; as to the Albanois the King had, since the last war, taken up 400 in Hungray, who remain there still because they would never attempt to pass except singly, unarmed and on foot, and so asked five pays in advance. N. (fn. n2) said moreover that these strangers were not for Scotland, but to be ready if the King (Francis) should move war in Picardy or on this side; and money was placed at Antwerp for their payment when required. He speaks of bad news of the Emperor's army. Bearer carries a parcel containing the "camisolles de laine" which the Admiral ordered of Barth. Compaigne. London, 25 Nov. 1546.
Musters have just been made in this town and are daily made in the country, by villages, in order to know what men of war could be had. Is assured that the King's ships are very near St. Andrews castle, without being able to land there; also that a French soldier has found means to get into the castle by command of this King, to whom he was presented by Lartigue.

R. O. Upon the Council's letter, because Merbyry was "destitute of howsinge," Sir Thomas Moyell took order with Edward Gaynsforde for the house he desired. Thanks Paget for setting forth his suit. Mr. Moyell has also appointed him a house in High Bulloyn wherein one Haster, late Clerk of the Council there, dwelt, promising a better when any such shall fall void. At his last departing from Court was advised by Paget not to stay about London to order his business, but rather to hasten hither and get licence to return for a time when Mr. Moyell should return. Perceives, however, that his absence now "should be an occasion that much of the King's Highness' lands in these parts should be unletten," and therefore he will rather desire licence to come over about Christmas for 15 days.

R. O. Whereas upon receipt of my letter by this bearer you immediately returned him hither again because I seemed not to have been "advertised by Myles"; you shall understand that no passage from Dover could reach this coast for five or six days "and yet at last was fain in extremity to recover Calais," as Mr. Man or Thomas Spuddell, whom I recommended for the passage, can aver. Just after bearer was departed Myles came hither from Calais; and, having understood his letters and credence, I "put the same in such ure as I have willed Sir John Bruges to declare unto you, which I doubt not but or this time he hath done." As bearer left the business undone for which he went over, I beg that he may have some allowance for his charges. Bulloigne, 26 Nov. 1546. Signed.

R. O. This bearer Gilpin brought a letter from you and the rest of the Council, to be restored to his room of leading the light horsemen at Blacknesse. The letter being directed to me, and the contents thereof to Mr. Caundysshe, I sent him a copy, advertising him that the fault of direction was in the writer, not thinking that he would doubt my honesty. He however refused to replace bearer; whom, thereupon, I despatched again towards you with request that the direction of the letter might be reformed. Mr. Caundisshe, perceiving this, apprehended him for felony, which felony was opened to me before his discharge, and I willed Mr. Caundisshe to use the extremity of the law thereupon, but no more was heard of it. I therefore refer it to your wisdom whether this persecution now is out of zeal for justice or to prevent the poor man returning to you. Gilpin shall answer according to the law; but, meanwhile, I beg that he may be restored to his room, or at least that the disposing thereof may be suspended until his trial. Bulloigne, 26 Nov. 1546.

R. O. On the 22nd received Paget's of the 15th, who writes that "these merchants here" should give like general acquittances as the King has given them. They agree thereto and desire to have an abstract in form approved by the Council; and, although we think the acquittance ought rather to be made by "those merchants there" (to whom the King gave his bonds, and at whose instance these here gave the credit) they here are ready to subscribe the same. John Carlo, as we have already advertised, is fully paid what was due to him in October, with interest for the difference of the money by exchange, and has acted very gently,—as we pray you to act towards those merchants there, so that he may be certified that the King is pleased with him, for he has heard a report to the contrary. Your velvet and damask is bought.
At your direction I, Damesell, bargained with Adrian and Michael Cosklar of Danske for certain corn which his factor here declares to have been long since delivered, and has often required payment of 900l. and odd remaining due, for which Michael Tymberman of the Stilliard has sued and cannot get payment. To-day the factor brought a notary and sergeant to make protest and arrest me; but, as that should both touch the King's honour and discredit his agents here, I persuaded him to be content to send this messenger to his factor there, whose payment I beg you to see accomplished, or else I shall be compelled to satisfy him here, with no small interest for forbearing thereof this six months, as he says.

28 Nov. 455. Selve to Francis I.
No. 65.
Wrote on the 25th, and has just received despatches of the 21st and 24th. The Scottish ambassadors were yesterday, after dinner, with the Council, Selve and the Emperor's ambassador being present. The audience was very stormy, as will be seen by the mémoire herewith. The King of England claims to be quit of the comprehension clause in the treaty of peace, both because of his treaties with the Emperor and because of new cause for war with the Scots; his object being to make the Scots abandon the comprehension clause and seek alliance with England by other ways, which the Scots here say ought never to be allowed. Yesterday came news that the English ships went to succour the castle of St. Andrews and had an artillery fight with the besiegers, during which the slayer of the late Cardinal, named Normont, went out by a postern on the seaside and has escaped to this country. Some say that he has brought the Governor's son with him. The bp. of Ross says that he will soon know the truth and that the fugitive is his brother d'ung costé, (fn. n3) and that if he got out it was not by a postern, because there is none, but by a window which opens on the sea three or four fathoms above it when the sea is high and full; before he left Scotland it was known that a small boat had been made in the Castle. The ambassadors have asked him to forward a letter to Francis. London, 28 Nov. 1546.
28 Nov. 456. Carne to Paget.
R. O. Promised in his letter of the 24th to advertise what he could learn of news brought that day by post from the Emperor to the Lady Regent. It seems to be "no other but the same self of the King of Romaynes doing in the country of Sax and of Duke Mauryce, save that they say the Emperor hath given to the Countye de Buyer a countie called Ketenesse bordering upon Fryseland, and that the Emperor's army do begin to build them houses in the Emperor's camp." Yesterday a post from Spirse brought the Lady Regent word that the King of Romaynes and Duke Mauryce have "seasenede" all the land of Saxe and won another battle, slaying 4,000 or 5,000 of their opponents. It is said here that 10,000 fresh men come from Naples and Italy to reinforce the Emperor, 2,500 being horsemen, 3,000 Spaniards and the rest Italians. Bruxelles, 28 Nov. 1546. Signed.

R. O.
St. P., xi. 353.
Wrote by his servant on the 26th ult. and again by the Admiral's post, on the 3rd inst. Longuevale is not returned to Court, but Wotton declared Paget's mind to La Planche who has doubtless reported it to Longuevale. La Planche said that he had been sent to the Protestants for the matter, which was not so forward as Paget seemed to think; and it was not the Protestants but the King only who could induce his master to renounce the Bishop of Rome. Has since spoken with the Cardinal of Belay (gives a cipher to represent his name in future) who made a long tale of his affection to this amity and thought the time come to make it straiter, as the Protestants needed help and his master had answered them that he would make a league with them if the King would; if thus leagued together, Belay thought they need fear no one, and unless the Protestants were succoured actum est de negocio Evangelii. The Cardinal goes not directly to the rejecting of the Bishop of Rome, but says that that must follow this league. Wotton replied that the French King would doubtless advertise the King of the matter, and they would act therein as expedient. Had a long conversation, in which Wotton said that had the Protestants been content with reason they might have been in league with us. The Cardinal replied that they durst not, because of the French threats, and therefore they demanded what they knew the King would not grant. The man shows himself earnest for the Gospel and anxious about the end of matters in Germany.
Has received a letter from Lord Cobham, Sir Thos. Seymour and his (Wotton's) brother, of their proceedings. St. Germain, one of the French Commissioners, is come hither and reports ours to be so wilful and unreasonable that he will not return, and will advise his master to revoke the rest. When last at Court nothing was said to Wotton of it. The Emperor went from Brentz, by Ulme, to Tillingen. Saw a letter from Strazzeburth which seemed to make his departure a kind of fleeing, and reported also great death of men and beasts in his camp, and that the Protestants did not follow because they feared ambushments, which Spaniards and Italians use much. The Emperor's ambassador speaks otherwise, as appears by the copy (herewith) of a letter from the bp. of Arras, his nephew (for he married Granvele's wife's sister). The ambassador has also received another letter, of the 16th inst., whereby it appears that the place where the Emperor lay, between Tyllingen and Laginghen, was low and wet, and therefore he removed to a higher place, which nevertheless, as the bringer said adjoins a bridge upon the Dunow. The letter also states:—That 8,000 of the Protestants have departed, and 6,000 offer to join the Emperor. That Auspurgh and Ulme are in great fear and dissension. That the noblemen of Spain send the Emperor a present of 600,000 ducats for this war, and the money is already at Genua. That fresh horsemen of Naples and Hungary are ready to join the Emperor. That the Emperor seeks to bring the Protestants to battle. That 500 Spanish arquebusiers lately overthrew a great escort of horsemen conducting victuals and munitions, and brought the whole prey to their camp. That victuals and necessaries are cheap in the Emperor's camp. That in case Mar continued the Emperor had sent for 2,000 more Spaniards. That the Emperor's Almains promise to remain in camp for fifteen days after the Protestants dissolve. That the Count Palatyn repairs to the Emperor for a reconciliation.
It is certain that Duke Moryce has declared for the Emperor against his cousin Hansefrederyke, the Duke Elector. The exploits of Duke Moryce and the Bemyens in Saxony appear by the copy (herewith) of part of the said last letter of the bp. of Arras. When the Emperor's ambassador told the news, the French King answered that the town which Duke Moryce is therein said to be "beating" is now taken. At the glad tidings of these exploits the ordnance in the Emperor's camp was discharged. In his defiance Duke Moryce protests that he moves not this war for religion, and would live and die for the Gospel. It seems to be about an abbey which the Elector detains from the Boemyens. The Emperor's ambassador shows Wotton that the French King lately borrowed more money at Lyons and has not yet paid his old debts there. Here is a tale that the King sends succour to the Scots besieged by the Governor in St. Andrews.
Captain Bua, the Albanoys taken at Turin, was sentenced and executed a fortnight before the date of the letter directing Wotton to speak for him. Is told that he ran away with money of his captain, who was compelled to make it good and took this process against him. Bua never said he was the King's servant; but that he had served and was dismissed, and he offered to serve in Italy. The Admiral and Cardinal of Tournon assure Wotton (which he can hardly believe) that when in the King's service Bua offered to return to the French king with all his men. It was to be expected that such a man would have little favour and short expedition in this process. Sends herewith a letter from the ambassador at Venys, which has been long in coming.

R. O. Wrote on the 24th inst., through the French ambassador, of such petty occurrents as were here. When the Lansgrave dislodged from the camp where he has been so long the Emperor followed, but returned next day to his own camp; where he has been all this day, in a cold snow, debating what to do. He must either set his men in garrisons or build lodgings for them. Some say that the Lansgrave breaks up his camp and departs, others (who seem better informed) that he and the Duke of Saxe are encamped in Wertingbergh, four English miles from his old camp, better posted than before, and meaning to keep his men together all winter if the Emperor so keeps his. This "pertinacye" causes the loss of many a good horse and death of many a man. Tillinge, 25 Nov.
ii. The Same to the Same.
After writing the enclosed, was told that this day the Emperor moved towards Noerlinge, which was bruited to have surrendered seven or eight days ago "but yet he hath it not." Grandevela advises the writer to remain here and will himself remain at Lawingen. Mr. Barnardyne was this morning at the camp and heard the Emperor tell Mons. Barbanson that- the Lansgrave was run away. If so the Emperor "shall make his case wonderfully well this winter." The wonder is that he who has acted so stoutly should now so cowardly run away. Perchance next news will be that he is nearer than we wish. Pray make Mr. Secretary Paget participant of "our variable news." I will advertise him by special messenger of anything of importance. Let me hear from you of the receipt of my letters. Tillinge, 25 Nov.
iii. The Same to the Same.
Encloses two letters of the 25th. Mons. de Pokere, who has remained to learn what is become of the Lansgrave, will deliver this. Heard yesterday that the Emperor approached Noerlinge and the inhabitants would render it, but some of the Lansgrave's men therein will not assent. The bruit continues in the Emperor's camp that Saxe and Lansgrave are gone. If so, the Emperor will soon have Noerlinge. Some say that he will winter thereabouts to vex Wirtenbergh, others that he will to Spyres to be near the Low Countries for reinforcements when spring comes. Please advertise Mr. Paget, in case my advertisements sent otherwise should fail. Tyllinge, 27 Nov.
iv. The Same to the Same.
The tarrying of Mons. de Pockere lets you have this letter as well as the other three; and yet I have received but one from you, although another post from you arrived within these two days. Noerlinge is rendered to the Emperor. Market tales of the Lansgrave are diverse, and more creditable advertisements I cannot get. The Emperor is at Popffingen, half a league from Noerlinge, where he will tarry three or four days. Tyllinge, 28 Nov.

In his last, of the 13th inst., notified the coming of the Scottish ambassadors. Seven or eight days later these ambassadors saw the King at Oatlands. They are the bp. of Ross and Dr. Whittingham, and they stated that the Scots wished to enjoy the benefit of their inclusion in the late treaty which they had accepted and now accept. The King merely referred them to his Council. The Council, in large number, met here the day before yesterday, the writer being present by invitation; and they related to him apart what had passed with the King, and asked whether he had full instructions as to the damage suffered by the Emperor's subjects at the hands of the Scots. Replied that it was inestimable; and the Council said the same on their side, besides obligations signed, sealed and confirmed by Parliament which the Scots had not fulfilled. After dinner the French ambassador came and the Scots set forth their mission. The Lord Chancellor told them that a full answer should be given in the writer's presence "since we were partners in the war"; and with that the Council retired, leaving him with the French ambassador and the Scots. The bp. of Ross said he was sure that the writer had no instructions to say that the Emperor and the English had common cause against them. Replied that he had no instructions to say so, but it was true that we were both at war. "Well," said the bp. "I do not think you are aware of it, but I may tell you that we are in negociation and understanding with your side; and I do so in order that you may know that we are not at war, as you seem to think; and we have nothing to do with you here, being simply here to treat with the English." Replied that if there was a treaty they had better produce it, for otherwise he must consider them enemies. The bp. asked "very sourly" whether the writer was instructed to call them enemies; and he, not to submit tamely to so rude a question, answered that those who were everywhere despoiling the Emperor's subjects must either be enemies or pirates (citing cases where the French themselves had compelled Scots to restore such spoil) and as to their mission he quite understood by their relation whom they were addressing. The Scots replied that it would not be proper for them to produce their treaty with us. Knowing from documents sent while Secretary Strick was still in Scotland that there was little hope of arrangement with the Scots, and that they continued their outrages, whereas he has no knowledge of any treaty with them, he supposes that the bp. sought, as he did with Strick, to breed distrust between us (England and the Emperor). When the Council returned the Scots were told that the inclusion was made "saving the treaties which each of the contracting princes claimed to have." The Scots maintained that these words meant treaties with them. The English said Not so; the original drafted by the French ended "claimed to have with the Scots," but the last three words were struck out because the King gave orders to break off negociations rather than vitiate the treaty with the Emperor; the Scots had given several fresh occasions for continuing the war, if only by their evil treatment of the subjects of the Emperor, the King's ally; they had moreover raided and burnt English lands on the borders. With regard to the Emperor's subjects, the Scots made no answer, but expressed themselves ready to make restitution for English claims. The Council, however, continued to dwell upon the violation of English territory, and, to the Scottish contention that it happened before the proclamation of the peace, retorted that the amount of the Scots' good will and honesty was demonstrated by their postponing the proclamation until the day after the exploit; the inclusion was conditional upon the Emperor's consent, which the King would have used his influence to obtain had the Scots given him cause. The Scots, with the French ambassador, who spoke in support of their view, then brought forward sundry subtleties with regard to the words nova occasione data referring to the treaty of 1515; but the Council showed plainly that it referred to the inclusion clause. The desire of the English to observe their treaty with the Emperor was apparent. They mentioned that the King of France, seeking peace, wished to include the Scots, but their King refused (although the Admiral of France assured them that the Scots were already included in the treaty between the Emperor and France) and so worded the clause for inclusion of the Scots as not to prejudice his treaty with the Emperor. They had since learnt from Van der Delft that what the Admiral of France said was untrue. Here Van der Delft thought it advisable to repeat that neither verbally, as the French averred, nor in writing, had the Scots been included by the Emperor, and he was sure this had been stated to the bp. (of Ross) in Flanders in 1544 and to the Admiral of France at Bruges afterwards. The matter went so far "that we told them (the Scots) plainly that they might produce the signatures and seals if they liked, for we had had and still possessed them all, but found none of them genuine." Finally the Scots asked to have the matters against them in writing.
The English consider these Scottish ambassadors very cunning, and that they have come to gain time, "for reasons which will be obvious." Expects that they will use their contention about the existence of a treaty in order to make the English distrust us; and, to prevent this, the writer told what had passed between the bp. and him to the Chancellor; who said that he had answered excellently, and begged him to report all to the Queen of Hungary. Has received letters from the Emperor of the 8th inst, which, coming with this King's despatches through the enemy's camp, are unsigned. The originals will come through Italy and France. Paget thinks he should address a few words to the King on the subject, and promises to appoint a convenient time. Is anxious for such an opportunity, to learn what is going on. London, 29 Nov. 1546.

Writes to the Queen his dealing with the Scottish ambassadors. One of the King's heralds has brought him a disguised letter from the Emperor "which had come into their hands by chance." It came opportunely to confound a report of the Emperor's defeat, for in it, dated the 8th inst., the Emperor writes that nothing has happened but unimportant skirmishes. The Emperor also writes that, for the King's sake, he has ordered the embargoes in Spain to be raised, against security, and thanks the King for information of the intrigue about which the writer sent Jehan du Bois thither.

No. 66.
Received very late last night the Admiral's despatch of the 24th. The present despatches to the King and Admiral would leave tonight but for the delay caused by the writing of the ambassadors of Scotland to the King. Mr. Adam Hotbourne whispered to Selve in Latin yesterday that the King would do well to show both here and in Scotland that he valued Scottish friendship, for several great personages desired the country to become English. An English herald lately arrived from the Emperor's camp who, as Paget says, brought news that the Emperor was at a town named Guingan, and the Almains beside the Danube seeking to cut off his victuals, and that most of the Italians had left him there. German merchants here say that he is in difficulties, but Flemings that they have news to the contrary. At closing this, learnt that the slayer of the Cardinal of St. Andrews has arrived in this town. He is named Normont Peslay (sic) and brings with him a man of law called Mr. Henry Penez. (fn. n4) They left St. Andrews Castle, under cover of the artillery of ten English ships into the boats of which they descended by ropes at great risk. Most of the said boats were sunk by the besiegers of the castle, whose artillery damaged some of the ships and killed men in them, so that they were compelled to withdraw from the castle, in which the Governor's son still remains.

Handed the enclosed letters to the merchants' courier for Antwerp; but as he secretly tarried here, to gain another silver piece of the merchants, and the Queen's courier for Scotland arrived, the writer took back the letters, intending to find another courier. Could, however, get none to go for less than 18 ducats, and was fain to let this man take the letters after all. Conceals the arrival of the Queen's courier from both English and Scots; for the Queen will see from his letters that little reliance can be placed on the "inclusion" of the Scots, and he is not sure that the English should know of negociations between us and them.

R. O. This day, being with the President about John Bradley's cause against the Countess of Mega, he delivered me a writing of news received by the Lady Regent from Germany which he had ready to be sent to me. He added:—That, at the desire of Duke Maurice, who now writes himself Elector, the King of Romaynes is returned out of Saxe and has confiscated the towns of the Duke of Saxe in Bohemia. The town of Ulmes has sent away all the Zusies whom the Landsgrave laid in garrison there, lest they should take the town for the Landesgrave. There is privy gathering of men in Germany and some give out that it is for the King, but they know here (said he) that it is neither for the King, nor the French king nor the King of Danmarch, and think it "to be by the particular lords of the country to set upon the Landsgrave." The Spaniards so occupied the Landsgrave's men as to force the whole camp "to keep watch in order iij nights a rewe" whereby 3,000 died for cold. Having Norlyngyn and "the other town," the Emperor may now come to Maguntia and be master both of the Rene and the Danubium. The above news he said came not from the Emperor but out of Germany.
As for Bradley's matter, sent to the Countess of Mega according to Paget's letter, but she makes no reply. Had before spoken to the Lady Regent therein and was referred to the President, who has promised to call the party and have the matter heard "before the Privye Counsail summarie, and so yendede as spedely as can bee."

The towns of Noirlinge and Poppinghen are surrendered to the Emperor, who is encamped by a wood nearer Ulme than he was. The Lantgrave was still in his camp, but his men secretly leaving him. Duke Maurice has taken the town of Swyckault by assault, entitled himself Elector, and sent to the nobles of the country to make oath to him, which most of them have done. He has sent a defiance to John Frederic, late Duke and Elector of Saxe, and written to the Saxon nobles in the camp of the late Lantgrave to return home; who daily steal away so as not to lose their fiefs.
