Copy of his deed of resignation of the archdeaconry of Wells to Henry VIII.; Dec. 26th 1546. "fo. 13."
26 Dec. 615. William lord Grey to the Council.
R. O. Hearing that certain Frenchmen were at Busheyn church and had not taken it of the King's Commissioners, I sent Sir Henry Palmer and Sir William Goodolphin thither; who found in the church Mons. de Bussheyn with his wife and family who said that his house "was near unto the church, a house place," but he had not taken it of the Commissioners, for both he and his neighbours the "parishons" of Busheyn were commanded by the procureur de Roy of Arde and by two Serjeants sent thither by Mons. Blerencort and Captain Dampont, to take no oath to the King our master until the Captain de la Garde should return out of England. To prove whether he meant to keep the church by force, Sir William Goodolphin asked him to dinner to-morrow; and after dinner they are to bring him to me, when I will gently command him and his neighbours to avoid the King's ground by a reasonable day. I beg to know what to do if they fail to go or if they return again by like order from Arde. Bulloigne, 26 Dec. 1546. Signed.

26 Dec. 616. Chamberlain to Paget.
R. O. Forwards a packet of letters received this day from Mr. Mounte which will certify the proceedings in Germany, where the Emperor is said to have "wondrously prospered." Trusts that Paget has received the two pieces of crimson velvet and white damask, and also a small vessel of Rhenish wine sent to him and my lady for a New Year's token. Sends herewith a token of six "coyffes" for my lady and six handkerchiefs for Paget, from his hostess at Bruxelles. His chimney tiles shall be made within 14 days.
The young men of our Company (of whom I wrote), apprehended on suspicion of the murder of a broker here, I have got released upon surety, by means of the Emperor's ambassador's brother-in-law, one of the lords of this town. Pray thank the ambassador in such wise that his brother-in-law may know it, who may do me more pleasures hereafter if he knows his dealings to be well taken by the Council and you. It shall well appear that these poor merchants are wrongfully accused. Andwarpe, 26 Dec. 1546.

26 Dec. 617. Thirlby to the Council.
R. O. In pursuance of their letters of the 15th, received on the 24th, asked for audience; but the Emperor, receiving at this feast the Blessed Sacrament, wished to repose for three or four days and refused audience to all men. He however sent one of his chief secretaries, Joys Bauar, on Christmas Day, to whom Thirlby declared his commission, not forgetting the great benefits which these two ungracious men (fn. n1) had received. Joyse having heard this, and "in by-talk, the busy head of the father and the pride of the son," said he would declare the matter to the Emperor incontinent. Ought to write to the King, but thinks it unwise to renew the memory of this "ingrate malice"; and so, most humbly upon his knees, begs them to be intercessors for his pardon herein. Halebrun, 26 Dec. 1546.

27 Dec. 618. The Privy Council.
Meeting at Ely Place, 27 Dec. Present: Chancellor, Great Master, Privy Seal, Great Chamberlain, [Admiral, Browne, Paget]. Business:— Letter to Deputy and Council of Boulogne that, whereas the King ordered them to advertise monthly the numbers of the garrisons in each piece, the money remaining in the Treasurer's hands and the state of the victuals, his Majesty marvels that for four months they have not done so; he had no knowledge of these important matters save Mr. Aucher's account of the victuals; they seem, from the highest to the lowest to have been too busy embracing farms for pasturage, chopping and selling them (even into France), to remember his service; he trusted to hear no more of such greediness, and that the Treasurer would advertise hither the numbers of garrisons and the store of treasure; and, finally, all houses appointed by their device, with that of Mr. Rowse and Mr. Aucher for stowage of victuals should be at once voided and put ready for victuals, any leases notwithstanding Letter to Lord Stourton to make ready the long house prepared by Mr. Aucher for victuals. To Mr. Cavendisshe, captain of Blacknesse, to make ready the house there. To Rogers, surveyor of Boulogne, to make a bakehouse (described), adjoining the brewhouse at New Haven. Richard Knight and William Kettyll had warrant to Peckham for 7,000l. and to Williams for 3,000l. to be employed by the Lord Great Master on provisions. Ant. Bonvixy and Anceline Salvage had warrant to Peckham for l,000l. towards payment of the King's debt in Flanders in February. Bart. Fortuny and Bart. Campaigne had the like. Broke, paymaster of works at Dover, had warrant to Carew for 400l. Letter to Sir Thomas Seymour to deliver Lord Sturton, for the new fort at New Haven, certain ordnance (specified). Francis Flemyng and Anthony Anthony had warrant to Cavendish for 121l. 7s. 8d. towards munition for Wark and Boulogne; and Flemyng a warrant for 200l. towards making the Ordnance House in the Tower. "Parson Levet had commission to oversee the iron mines in Sussex which appertained to the duke of Norfolk." Ant. Aucher had warrant to Williams for 2,000l. for grain for Boulogne, etc. Letter to Treasurer of Berwick to pay Ralph Fenwyk a 40s. pension from the death of the last holder.
Dec. 619. The Privy Council to Wotton.
R. O.
St. P., xi. 394.
The King, upon seeing Wotton's letters to himself and to Paget touching Norfolk's matter and the staying of "their" (i.e. the French) courier at Dover, approves his doings. Albeit the laws forbid any person to carry money out of the realm, couriers and posts going in princes' affairs have always been favoured; and therefore the King is very ill pleased with the searcher of Dover, whom the Council are to send for and correct. Where it appears by Wotton's said letters that ambassadors are come thither from the Protestants, accompanied by Dr. Bruno, and are shortly to repair hither also; their coming is probably "but for one thing," and Wotton must set Bruno to make them induce the French king to enter league with them first, for, otherwise, if the King should enter league with them the French king might "slip to the Emperor." The French ambassador and Polino, separately, with letters of credence, have had access to the King. The Ambassador's credence was for the comprehension of the Scots; and the King answered that he thought the Scots could not claim the benefit of the comprehension, but he would do as the treaty bound him, and, for his love to his good brother, it would be the Scots' fault if things went not well. Polino's charge referred to the fortifications, the limits and the galley, he saying that his master, having now heard both sides, would make the King judge in the matter of the fortifications. As to the limits, we see no cause for parting with Villemontyer, and are to talk with them again to-morrow therein; and for the galley we answered so fully that they will take her either by gift or justice.
The King lately, "upon some grief of his leg, was entered into a fever"; but he is now well rid of it and we trust that he will be the "better for it a great while."

27 Dec. 620. Van der Delft to Schore.
viii., No. 373.
Gave the enclosed packet for the Queen to a sailor, but he (qu. his ship?) and others were seized for the King's service in revictualling Boulogne. Councillor Van der Burgh afterwards went to Paget and writes to the Queen herewith. The Councillors go daily to the Tower to examine the two prisoners. The Bang is said to be better and intends in a day or two to give audience to the French ambassador, who insists on seeing him. Will use every effort to discover with what satisfaction Paulin leaves. London, 27 Dec.
27 Dec. 621. Selve to the French Ambassador in Flanders.
No. 82.
Perceives by his despatch of the 1lth, received two or three days ago, that he had not then received Selve's of the 4th, and regrets that they have no means of communication except by way of merchants. M. de la Garde has been these 18 days in London. There are rumors of war against Scotland. Norfolk and his sons are arrested. Parliament meets on 15 Jan. and will treat of some other great changes in this realm. London, 27 Dec. 1546.
27 Dec. 622. William lord Grey to the Council.
R. O. There is here such lack of money among the soldiers and labourers that they want clothes to keep away the winter's cold and other necessaries. At the sight of their misery and cold and the hearing of their lamentations, both pity and duty move him to beg their lordships to hasten the sending of money. Sends bearer, Mr. Smyth, the auditor to solicit this matter. Bulloigne, 27 Dec. 1546. Signed.
P. 1. Add. Endd.
27 Dec. 623. William lord Grey to Paget.
R. O. Writes to the Council by his friend, the bearer, Mr. Smyth, the auditor, for money to make payments here full three months unpaid. Like all men of war, has great trust in Paget's furtherance, and begs his help that the poor soldiers may be the sooner relieved.
The French king, now at Campaigne, comes no nearer this way but returns to Paris. Into Laurayne are come 10,000 landzknightes which the French king will bestow in St. Powle and other fortresses about Artoys.
"Upon Christmas Even's even Mons. St. Jermayn came to the fort at Oultreau, and this day Mons. de Bies and Mons. de Rewes repaireth to the French court. I also understand that for truth the money is defrayed for the fortifying at Paulett Hill." Has been slack in sending advertisements because there has been nothing to send, as he begs Paget to declare to the King. Bulloigne, 27 Dec. 1546.
Begs that, immediately upon the Marshal's return, he may have leave to come into England. Signed.

27 Dec. 624. Mont to Henry VIII.
R. O.
St. P., xi. 395.
Wrote last, on the 15th, that the Emperor had received the submission of Nordlinga, Dunckelspoel, Rotenburg and Halle; and now Ulm, Heilbrun and Sueinfort have sued for grace. Augsburg also now has ambassadors with the Emperor. Frankfort has sent to the Count of Beuren to beg his intercession, which is granted on condition that they send ambassadors to the Emperor soon; and yesterday all the orders consented to the choice of an embassy. The Elector Palatine has now followed the Emperor for three weeks, and is said to have difficulty in obtaining grace, because he aided the Protestants with 300 horsemen and two standards of footmen. William Duke of Bavaria intercedes for the Duke of Wirtenberg; but the Emperor insists on that Duke ceding his rule to his son Christopher, who has not yet favoured the religion of the Protestants and is son of the said William's sister. So now the Smalcaldic league is in great part dissolved. Four days ago the Count of Beurn arrived in the county of Catzenelnbogen possessed by the Landgrave, with 4,000 horse and 8,000 foot, and compelled the principal places to submit, taking Darmstat at the third assault. This county has a fortress ad Menum, which is garrisoned, and seems willing to undergo a siege. By the way Beuren mulcted in a heavy sum the Counts of Erpach whom the Palatine had sent with other horsemen to the Protestants. The Landgrave is at Cassel, too weak to repel such a force; for the Emperor is not far from the Count, who has almost all the cavalry with him. The cities of Upper Germany, weary of war and drained of money, will accept any conditions, their religion saved, which the Emperor promises to put to the judgment of a Council, either general or national; and they successively seem as though they would be little help to the Hessian or the Saxon. The Duke of Saxony has recovered some of the places occupied by Maurice. What will be the lot of these princes is still uncertain. They have the favour of many, especially evangelicals, but the present strength of the Emperor compels the cities to seek their own safety. Datum Oxonie, 27 Dec. 1546. Signed: Bergottus.

27 Dec. 625. Mont to Paget.
R. O. Has signified to the King the doings in Upper Germany, and cannot see what to expect but adversity and grief from these sorrowful tendencies; for those whose money sanctioned and prepared this war will have the fruition of the victory, and in their lust and superstition give laws to the vanquished. But although the conquering cause may please men, undoubtedly the conquered is more pleasing to God, who will not have His glory established by human power, nor delighteth in the strength of a horse or the legs of a man, who also bringeth down and setteth up, and whether we die or live we are His. The Count of Beurn is now three miles hence; for Catzenelnbogen adjoins this city which is now ill fortified, the Main which flows by the one side and the moat on the other being joined by the ice and passable to the enemy. Ambassadors have been sent to the Emperor; and to-day Reyffenberg sought admission with ten standards of footmen, which has been denied. The cities of Upper Germany are more desirous of peace than of war, seeing great expenses and vast forces hitherto nothing avail. Commendations to Mr. Peter your colleague. Datum Oxonie, 27 Dec. 1546. Signed: Bergottus.

27 Dec. 626. Somerset Herald to Paget.
R. O. Since leaving the Emperor's Court I have learnt that Count Gyllam was chief worker to persuade the commissaries at Ulmes to withdraw their goodwill from the Landgrave, and caused Ulmes to surrender. The Landgrave marched away with 42 ensigns of footmen and 3,000 horsemen in good order, and still keeps that army together. Passing homeward, he let his soldiers sack all cloisters and priests. He is said to be in his own country and to have privily received money from the French king to keep his men together till next spring. The Emperor likes not the Landgrave's retaining of men and getting so much money homeward, which is bruited to be above 200,000 dalders. The Count Bure has sacked the Landgrave's town of Armystat and marches towards the rest of his dominions. "It seemeth that there is some things that contenteth not the French king, for within these eight days his ambassador here with the Emperor hath despatched three posts, one in another's neck." I caused my lord of Westminster to despatch my fellow Blewmantell, as able to declare the "discourse" of affairs during this war, he having been present when any notable thing was done. I would desire you to help him to some allowance for his painful travail, almost these two years, with my lord of Westminster, "for by his absence he hath lost his preferment for his exchange of his room in our office." As soon as I have been at Strawsburghe and learnt the truth of matters I will return to his Highness. Spyers, 27 Dec.

28 Dec. 627. W. lord Stourton to Paget.
R. O. This bringer, Peter Marten, leader under me of the horsemen here, is in trouble for one Thomas Powell, dec. Marten and Powell being fighting together, one John Graye, a Scotchman, as divers credible persons say, struck Powell on the head behind; and Powell himself said next day that it was not Marten who struck him, but "another that came behind him." Powell's friends, however, sue the said Marten. Begs favour for him, and trusts that if pardoned this offence he will do good service here. New Haven, 28 Dec. Signed.

The King has seen their sundry letters, and thanks them for their proceedings in the musters and the sessions.

My lord of Sussex has this day sent me letters from the King's Council addressed to him, you and me, for the speedy collection of the Contribution granted to the King. Sends copies of both letters (from Sussex and the Council). Where his Lordship writes that we should wait upon him before Twelfth Day with the collectors, I have answered (copy enclosed) that it is meet to give the collectors notice "undelaidlye," that at next Norwich sessions they may declare their accounts, "and of all recusants mentioned in the said letters"; so that we may proceed according to the tenor of the letters. Please give knowledge to Thomas Woodhouse, one of the said collectors, to keep his day at the sessions. I have written (copy enclosed) to John Dethike, the other collector. 29 Dec. 1546. Signed.

29 Dec. 632. Frederic Count of Weda to Henry VIII.
R. O. Complains that Frederic a Reiffenberg, "proxime exacta æstate," for the King's service raised an army in the writer's county, and by remaining there longer than was right has utterly ruined his people. Encloses a letter from the eschevins of Andernacken testifying this. Would have given 1,500 gulden to be quit of them, and his only hope is now in the King's clemency. His kinsman, the bearer, can declare what passed; and if further proof is wanted he refers to his brother german the Archbp. of Cologne, and to the princes and counts his neighbours.

29 Dec. 633. Diego Hurtado de Mendoza to Charles V.
viii., no. 374.
The Signory has appointed Navagero, formerly ambassador to the Emperor, ambassador to England. Has twice reported that they were discussing this, and that it was a trick of the English and French to which the Pope was suspected to be a party; also that Cardinal Farnese said that the Pope would send him to France to negociate peace with the Emperor. It may be concluded that this ambassador goes to negociate some league between France, England and this Signory. This government is in the hands of persons ill affected to the Emperor, mostly young, some very poor and some very rich. The poor want change in order to enrich themselves, while the rich are afraid of the Emperor. There are two Councils, one called the Council of Petitions where things are finally settled, and which does not want war with the Emperor, the other the Council of Ten where matters are prepared for decision. This latter is ill disposed to the Emperor and frequently deceives the other. Venice, 29 Dec. 1546.
Calendar, viii.,
No. 375.
2. Details of an interview between Mendoza and the Signory.Mendoza complained that they tried to dissuade the Pope from joining the league against the Lutherans, advised the Protestants to hold out four months, were in close communication with Lutherans, and moved the Turk to attack Hungary; all which charges they specifically denied. With regard to the third point they said that Baltasar Altieri, secretary to the English ambassador, presented letters of recommendation from some Protestant legates, and subsequently presented other letters from the Protestants at Ulm requesting the Signory to stop the passage through their territory to the Papal troops; and the proof that they disregarded these letters was that passage was allowed.
30 Dec. 634. Henry VIII.'s Will.
R. O.
Rymer, xv.,
Remembering the great benefits given him by Almighty God, and trusting that every Christian who dies in steadfast faith and endeavours, if he have leisure, to do such good deeds and charitable works as Scripture commands, is ordained, by Christ's Passion, to eternal life, Henry VIII. makes such a Will as he trusts shall be acceptable to God, Christ, and the whole company of Heaven, and satisfactory to all godly brethren in Earth. Repenting his old life, and resolved never to return to the like, he humbly bequeaths his soul to God, who in the person of His son redeemed it and for our better remembrance thereof "left here with us in his Church Militant the consecration and administration of his precious Body and Blood"; and he desires the Blessed Virgin and holy company of Heaven to pray for and with him, while he lives and in the time of his passing hence, that he may after this "the sooner attain everlasting life." For himself he would be content that his body should be buried in any place accustomed for Christian folks, but, for the reputation of the dignity to which he has been called, he directs that it shall be laid in the choir of his college of Windesour, midway between the stalls and the high altar, in a tomb now almost finished in which he will also have the bones of his wife, Queen Jane. And there an altar shall be furnished for the saying of daily masses while the world shall endure. The tombs of Henry VI. and Edward IV. are to be embellished. Upon his death, his executors shall, as soon as possible, cause the service for dead folk to be celebrated at the nearest suitable place, convey his body to Windsor to be buried with ceremonies (described), and distribute 1,000 mks. In alms to the poor "(common beggars, as much as may be, avoided)" with injunctions to pray for his soul. St. George's College in Windsor Castle shall be endowed (if he shall not have already done it) with lands to the yearly value of 600l., and the dean and canons shall, by indenture, undertake:—(1) to find two priests to say mass at the aforesaid altar; (2) to keep yearly four solemn obits at which 10l. shall be distributed in alms; (3) to give thirteen poor men, to be called Poor Knights, each 12d. a day, and yearly a long gown of white cloth &c. (described), one of the thirteen being their governor and having, in addition, 3l. 6s. 8d. yearly; and (4) to cause a sermon to be made every Sunday at Windsor.
As to the succession of the Crown, it shall go to Prince Edward and the heirs of his body. In default, to Henry's children by his present wife, Queen Catharine, or any future wife. In default, to his daughter Mary and the heirs of her body, upon condition that she shall not marry without the written and sealed consent of a majority of the surviving members of the Privy Council appointed by him to his son Prince Edward. In default, to his daughter Elizabeth upon like condition. In default, to the heirs of the body of Lady Frances, eldest daughter of his late sister the French Queen. In default, to those of Lady Elyanore, second daughter of the said French Queen. And in default, to his right heirs. Either Mary or Elizabeth, failing to observe the conditions aforesaid, shall forfeit all right to the succession.
Appoints as executors of this will the Abp. of Canterbury, the Lord Wriothesley, Chancellor of England, the Lord St. John, Great Master of our House, the Earl of Hertford, Great Chamberlain of England, the Lord Russell, Lord Privy Seal, the Viscount Lisle, High Admiral of England, the bishop Tunstall of Duresme, Sir Anthony Broun, Master of our Horse. Sir Edward Montagu, chief judge of the "Commyn Place," Justice Bromley. Sir Edward North, Chancellor of the Augmentations, Sir William Paget, our chief Secretary, Sir Anthony Denny and Sir William Harbard, chief gentlemen of our Privy Chamber, Sir Edward Wootton and Dr. Wootton his brother. All these shall also be Councillors of the Privy Council with Prince Edward; and none of them shall do anything appointed by this Will alone, but only with the written consent of the majority. Sir Edmond Peckham, cofferer of our House, shall be treasurer of all moneys defrayed in performance of this Will. Debts, with redress of injuries (if any such can be proved, although he knows of none) shall be their first care after his burial. All grants and recompenses which he has made or promised but not perfected are to be performed.
To his son Edward he gives the succession of his realms of England and Ireland, the title of France and all his dominions, and also all his plate, household stuff, artillery, ordnance, ships, money and jewels, saving such portions as shall satisfy this Will; charging his said son to be ruled as regards marriage and all affairs by the aforesaid Councillors (names repeated) until he has completed his eighteenth year. And the following persons shall be of Council for the assistance of the foresaid Councillors when required, viz., the present earls of Arundel and Essex, Sir Thomas Cheney, treasurer of our Household, Sir John Gage, comptroller of our Household, Sir Anthony Wingfield, our vice-chamberlain, Sir William Petre, one of our two principal secretaries, Sir Richard Riche, Sir John Baker, Sir Ralph Sadleyr, Sir Thomas Seymour, Sir Richard Southwell, and Sir Edmond Peckham.
Bequeaths to his daughters', Mary and Elizabeth's, marriages to any outward potentate, 10,000l. (fn. n3) each, in money, plate, etc., or more at his said executors' discretion; and, meanwhile, from the hour of his death, each shall have 3,000l.

30 Dec. 636. William Lord Grey to Paget.
R. O. Bearer, James Lyslye, being by the "crowners quest" found guilty of the death of a labourer, has no remedy but the King's pardon by "bill assigned." He is one of the wardens of the works here; and it appears to me that he did not strike the labourer maliciously or with an unlawful weapon; but, reproving the man for evil service, and receiving evil language and the fault not amended, gave two or three little stripes with a small ruler, and that not on the side, as the quest has found, nor of such force as to cause death. In procuring his pardon you shall do a charitable deed; otherwise "both he should have wrong and also the other labourers be thereby so encouraged as none officer might be able to rule any labourers; by means whereof his Highness' works shall proceed very slowly and to his Majesty's greater charge." Bulloigne, 30 Dec. 1546. Signed.

R. O.
St. P., xi., 398.
Cardinal Belay has sent word that the ten pieces of wine which Paget should have of him are ready, but certain English merchants to whom he would have delivered it would not meddle therewith; his factor's letter, which Wotton saw, stated that "neither the King's Majesty's sommeliers were yet come thither, nor such English merchants as he had spoken unto to receive it would not meddle with it." Paget should speak with the next that goes thither to receive it; for the Cardinal was so ready to pay the wager lost to my lord of Herforde that this should be no feigned matter either.
The Queen of Navarre is sent for, and therefore the Protestants' matter is likely to prosper. The Protestants have had their answer and are shortly departing towards you, only telling Wotton that the answer was good. They are reported to have declared the danger to all princes if the Protestants are overtrodden, the Emperor's intent being manifest; and to have had answer that the French king had made a confederacy with the King of England and would do as that King did. This the ambassadors misliked not, but pointed out their present necessity, seeing Duke Moryce's attempt in Saxony and the Emperor's reinforcing his army under Mons. de Buren now, when it was thought that war should cease for the winter. What answer they have had thereupon Wotton cannot learn, but supposes that it was better than fair words. Dr. Bruno came not this way. Compiegne, 30 Dec. 1546. Signed.

R. O.
St. P., xi., 397.
Receiving the enclosed letters from Mr. Barnardyne, was shocked to find that he remained with Mons. de Bures when Thirlby expected him to have been with the King before Somerset arrived here. Regrets that the King was not advertised in time of the Lansgrave's breaking and other occurrents. Trusts that Bluemantell will make better diligence. On the 26th inst. Somerset and Blewmantell departed for Spires together, Somerset to do the King's business and Blewmantell to go into England. The Count Palatine and two commissaries of the Duke of Wirtenberge arrived on the 28th. It is reported that his offers are large and will be accepted, but the Emperor takes until to-day to make answer. Now it is evident that the Count Palatine mediates for the Duke. Notwithstanding the bruit of the Duke's suit for grace, the Duke of Alva, on the 27th, marched towards Stockerde, a chief town of Wirtenberge, five leagues hence, sacking a town of the Duke's by the way. A house in this town replenished with the Duke's wine and corn (for he has all tithes of the land hereabouts) has since been given to spoil to the Emperor' halberdiers. If the Emperor agree with the Duke we look to come to Spires or Wormes, or else to Frankeforde, the surrender of which to Mons. de Bures was reported yesterday. Halebrunne, 30 Dec. 1546.
P.S.—Mors. de Deake promises to send these letters to Antwerpe and Thirlby has written to the governor there to forward them. He affirms that the French king will muster men at St. Nicholas in Loreyne.

Letters, ii., 639.
(Parker Soe.).
After so great a change in our prosperous condition, must report the evils impending over the Church in Germany. A messenger of the King of England, who yesterday left the Emperor at his camp at Heilbrunnen in Wirtemberg reports that the Emperor is exceedingly elated with his success. To the magistrates of a city which surrendered, calling themselves rebels, he said "Though you are rebels yet I will show you how merciful I am"; adding, that he said not a word about religion and only imposed on them a fine. This was no doubt politic, and if he bring all Germany into subjection it will show how subtle he is. The fear of him has overspread all the district round Strasburg, which expects a blockade. Count Buren, too, has taken possession of a small town near Frankfort, named, I think, Darmstadt.
The news from England is as agreeable as the above is distressing. The Duke of Norfolk whose authority extended to the North of England—a most bitter enemy of the word of God—has been imprisoned, with his son, with whom he made a secret attempt to restore the Pope and the monks; but their design was discovered. Nothing is wanting now but that Winchester be caught, without which evangelical truth cannot be restored. Will depart hence seawards. Commends his wife to Bullinger's care. Strasburg, 31 Dec. 1546. Signed. Burcher, Anglus.
Richard [Hilles] and his wife salute you and your wife. They had a daughter born to them about six weeks ago.
[Dec] 645. John Hooper to Henry Bullinger.
Letters, i., 40.
(Parker Soe.).
Received almost a year ago at Strasburg his learned and godly letter, urging that the true worship of God could have nothing to do with outward idolatry, and advising Hooper to endure the loss of home and fortune rather than participate in the ungodly worship of the mass. Agrees with him cordially. Recounts the events of his long and dangerous journey to England. Suffered many things by land, and twice suffered bonds and imprisonment. Was delivered with heavy loss of his fortune, and was wretchedly harassed at sea for three months both by enemies and by storms. Then, being delivered from fire and water came upon war. Sees nothing but the death of all godliness and religion; but the Lord doubtless will look upon His people. The bearer will inform you of the good news we received yesterday from Strasburg. There will be a change of religion in England, and the King will take up the gospel of Christ if the Emperor be defeated in this most destructive war. Should the Gospel sustain a loss, he will then retain his impious mass, for which he has this last summer committed four respectable and godly persons (fn. n10) to the flames. Our King has now confined in the Tower of London the duke of Norfolk and his eldest son, both of whom, if report be true, had conspired the death of the King and prince. My wife salutes you and other learned and godly persons with you. We hope to visit you shortly. Master de Valys and his wife and family wish you all happiness. There is in his house a godly and learned youth whom I intend bringing with me to Zurich; please get him, if you can, a teachership in your school. He will not shrink from severe labor. Salute Bibliander, Pellican, Gualter and the rest; also the godly matron, Faulkner who came with us to Basle from Strasburg, which place she left unmarried, but I have now with the consent of her parents bestowed her in marriage.
