Love compels him to write to her; and even if she were not his sister he would be bound to love her for her virtue, for virtue is the loadstone of love and will never perish, but other things will quickly slip away. Was bound therefore to think of her and, having leisure, to compose a letter. Prays God to be her shield against all evil. 26 Sept. 1546.

Meeting at Windsor, 27 Sept. Present: Privy Seal, Lord Chamberlain, Essex, [Browne, Wingfield, Paget]. Business:—Guilliam. Bartier, attendant of the French ambassador, had licence to convey to certain gentlemen of France who were here with the Admiral 6 doz. dishes, 3 doz. platters, 8 doz. trenchers, 3 salt cellars, 9 candlesticks, 12 pots and 6 flagons, all of tin, and 3 pieces of kersey.
27 Sept. 167. The Council in London to Paget.
R. O. His letters by Edw. Agarde direct them to invite Duke Philip and despatch Guron, declaring the same despatch to the French ambassador; but Duke Philip, to whom the writers had already in the King's name offered pleasures, renewed now on sending him Paget's letters, is confined to his house with a fever. Have however invited the Count Ringrave and the Doctor (fn. n1) to dinner on Wednesday. Never heard of Guron since the King's departure, and would gladly know from Paget where he is lodged, so as not to be seen to enquire for him. Here is diverse news, some saying that De Buren is distressed, Barbanson slain and the Emperor has suffered great loss and is ill, others saying that Barbanson is not slain, that De Buren is still in force, and that the Emperor has lost no more than the other party and only waits to collect his forces. Look to Paget for more certain news. Westm., 27 Sept. Signed by Wriothesley and St. John.
P.S. in St. John's hand.—If you send for Gurron and despatch him there will be less bruit thereof.

R. O. Can tell nothing of this war. It is said that the Duke of Bavaria wished to intervene for peace, but our side would not listen to it. Both armies are strong. We have 20,000 foot more than the Imperialists; and in addition a count has come with 16 standards, about 7,000, and Duke Otto from Linabung is expected hourly with 600 horse. Both armies have passed the Danube 7 leagues from here, the Imperialists posted in a wood, and ours, by skirmishing, seeking battle. It is said that the Emperor desires to go into Flanders and that ours will follow until they can give him battle in some plain. The Emperor is ill with gout. Piero Strossi and other French captains are in our camp, apparently wishing to be at the battle and afterwards lead an army into Italy. The Swiss give France 20,000 foot. The Dauphin will pass into Piedmont.

The King did me the favor to find me (de me trouver) in this company when Combas, the present bearer, was despatched. On the other hand I have only received one letter from you by Aussy, who assures me your affairs are in better train than when I left you. I thank God for this, and would still more if He were to send you back hither. Your father and brothers are here except Mons. de Maigne, who is at Jainville, where I intended to go in accordance with your directions touching the government of your son. The King had written to me of it and I had gone home with this intention, but at Court things which I cannot write, as I think your father and brothers will inform you, interfered with it. You wrote to Mons. de Rains to provide my brother with a benefice, and he promised on my arrival to do so on any vacancy among those of the Cardinal your uncle, his own, or your son's. Requests her to refresh his memory, as he will not solicit further himself. Argilli, 27 Sept.

Meeting at Windsor, 28 Sept. Present: Lord Chamberlain, Essex Durham, Browne, Wingfield, Paget. Business:—Letters to Sir Ant. Knyvett, lieutenant of the Tower, that, in consideration of his old service, the King granted his suit to be delivered of that charge, with gift of 100l. annuity, and that he should hand over his charge, by indenture, to Sir Walter Stoner, his successor. To Lord Wharton, that in all conference with the Scots he should take care that the assured Scots were preserved and defended.

St P., i. 879.
With "our answer to your strange letters," I require you to consider that, travailing here in matters displeasant to all whom we call before us, it is great discomfort to see things otherwise taken than we deserve. You know the importance of this matter of money and how slowly it comes in. "And even now we be advertised by [Sir John Gresh]am that he shall not be habl[e from the all]om and fustians to pay Bartilmewe, but he must have two thousand pounde by warrant." In February we have 20,000l. Fl. to pay; which must even now be foreseen, as it must come "of your half year's rent and the tail of your Contribution, with some help of the Mint"; for [the] Subsidy is not payable until Easter and your Fifteenth after. My lord Great Master lacks for victualling, and poor men who delivered victuals long since remain yet unpaid. I would to God the King had a store, as I trust to see him have shortly,—the world is so doubtful and dangerous. We can only trust in God and look "that our plainness be not deceived by the doubleness of the world as it hath been of late days." It is late, and we have sitten, as we commonly do, from morning till night. Ely Place, this Michaelmas Even, at 11 p.m.

28 Sept. 176. Carne to Paget.
R. O. Upon receipt of Paget's letters of the 17th, by Mr. Rede's servant, gave President Schore the King's thanks for expediting affairs. Schore was well pleased. Mr. Dymocke's matter is despatched and Carne has sent "it" to Mr. Damesell at Andwarp, to forward. Upon the Council's letters of the 5th inst. for release of 8,120 bowstaves provided for the King in Swycherlande and arrested at Mentz, the Lady Regent has written favourable letters to the Emperor, which Carne has delivered to the merchant who sues therein. She said that if she had authority there she would do it out of hand, or if she knew a better way she would use it. No occurrents out of Germany since he last wrote. The Lady Regent is sure that the Count Du Buyre was with the Emperor on the 15th as appointed, but she looks daily for a post from the Emperor. "The President told me for truth that the town of Norembergh is with the Emperor against the Landsgrave, and that all the artillery that the Emperor had before the arrival of the Countye du Buyre he borrowed of the town of Noremberghe aforesaid; and there was the County du Buyre well entreated and his army provided of victuals as he would."

St. P. xi.,
By letters of the 16th inst., sent in Grandevela's packet, reported the arrival of Mons. du Bures, who brought 7,000 or 8,000 horsemen of the Nether Lande, of the young duke of Brunswyke, of the Great Master of Spruse and other Almains, and 10,000 or 12,000 footmen. On the 17th the Emperor crossed Danubium near Ingolstat and marched leisurely hither within a league of Tonwar, near which the Lansgrave has lain since leaving Ingolstat encamped on both sides of Danubium and having bridges across it. On the Emperor's arrival here on the 24th inst., the Lansgrave brought all his army to this side and encamped within four English miles. Next day Signor Pero de Columpna, John Baptista de Castalda, master of the Camp, Caesar de Naples and others with a band of haquebuttiers and 200 light horse went to view the enemy's camp and were like to have been all taken or slain. Caesar de Naples (who desires to serve the King and is counted one of the best of the Emperor's captains) was given up for lost; but at night he returned having lost over 20 men. Among the slain was a gentleman of the Duke of Bavare's who acted as guide here. Here is much consultation; for although the Emperor has 10,000 horsemen and 40,000 footmen, and would in an indifferent place give battle, the Lansgrave is strongly encamped and lies in the way of the Emperor's intended going either to August or to the Duke of Wertenberg's lands. Winter will make them take a deliberation shortly, for this country "will suffer no winter wars." Wrote on the 16th that Newburgh refused to surrender; but next day it surrendered to mercy, although the Lansgrave was so nigh and the tower able to be defended for a time. The Emperor arrived there on Sunday the 19th and gave the Duke of Alva all the stuff in the castle, of Duke Otto Henricus (to whom the town belonged, although Thirlby's other letters named it the Duke of Bavare's) who had bestowed much upon the magnifique building. The Emperor was displeased to learn that the antiques, images, ceilings and other ornaments of the house were razed; for he intended giving both town and castle to the Duke of Bavare. On Wednesday last the Emperor went to the town to take their oaths; and he gave Coronell Aliprendre, the Cardinal of Trent's brother, the spoil of two of the head burgesses, who were with the Lansgrave. Their houses were razed to the ground. Raynes, a town of the Duke of Bavare's which the Lansgrave had taken, afterwards surrendered. Mekersay. 28 Sept. 1546.
P. S.—"At the riflyng of the castel of Newburg ther was fownd wrightingys of duke Philyp towching the matter of his long suyt in Englonde. I shall hereafter, upon the occasion of an express messenger, declare you how I came by them, and in the mean season keep them safely."

Fl. "Here ys a saying that the Duke of Saxon and the Landisgrave am bothe in the Emperours army, and that the eldest son of Don Fernando and the Duke of Bavare am in th' armey of the Protestantes.

29 Sept. 188. Chamberlain and Damesell to the Council.
R. O. Succeeding to Mr. Vaughan's charge for the payment of the King's debts, they have taken instructions from him and fully satisfied the Fugger and the factors of Bonvici and Vivaldi; paying Diodati for Bonvici 9,000l. Fl. and Balbani for Vivaldi 6,000l. Fl. Enclose copies of their acquittances; and for the Fugger Vaughan intends to bring the obligations himself. For the debt to Cavalcanti and Giraldi on the 15th prox. they will take order with John Carlo. Mr. Vaughan declares that interest is to be allowed for lack of payment in valued money and for provision. This the merchants also require, and the writers trust in a day or two to agree with them as little as possible to the King's disadvantage.
Upon Sir John Gresham's signifying to Damesoll the Council's pleasure touching receipt of 8,000 and odd kyntalls of copper from the Fugger, the King's ambassador obtained the necessary passport from the Lady Regent; and 600 kyntalls are already laden in a hoy of this town. Like quantities shall be daily laden as ships and hoys depart for London. Gresham writes that it is to be consigned to the King's house in London whereof Damesell has custody, but makes no mention of freight. Should he send thither for that purpose the remainder of the money received of John Dymocke? Andwarpe, 29 Sept. 1546. Signed"

29 Sept. 189. Wotton to Henry VIII.
R. O. Pending President Remon's return to Court, caused Messir Francesco Bernardo to be in hand with the Admiral for the matter of the head of the river and persuade him that it should be ordered according to the agreement; and on the President's arrival sent tothe Admiral to know when to come for answer, who willed him to come to Court next day by 9 o'clock and alight at Cardinal Toornon's lodging. Did, so, and dined with the Cardinal, the Chancellor, President Remon and others. After dinner the Cardinal went to the King, who was dining, and the Chancellor showed Wotton that the King had delayed his answer about the hay carried away by them of Arde, and having sent a gentleman to enquire the truth of the matter, found that it was grown in his ground. Replied that the gentleman had not well informed his master, for the ground was known to be Henry's, who was in possession peaceably of it both before the wars and since the peace, the captain of the bulwark having his cattle going upon it. "That is a small possession," quoth the Chancellor. "Whatsoever it be," quoth Wotton, "he ought not to be spoiled of it without order of justice though the ground were yours, and much less now that the ground is the King my master's." But the Chancellor said the answer was that the ground was his master's, and he and his had been in possession of it continually.
When the King had dined, all went to the Admiral's chamber, and, there sitting the Admiral, Chancellor, Card. Toornoy (sic), Mons. de Maugeron, Mons. de Longuevall, President Remon, and another whose name, being strange, Wotton cannot recollect, he showed them that during the treating of this peace those sent divers times to view the head and spring of the river could not agree, except that it must needs be Kesques or Vielmonstier (and because the English said it was Vielmonstier the French said it was Kesques); and thereupon it was agreed with President Remon and Secretary Bouchetell to pass the treaty and afterwards commissioners should measure the said two branches, and the longest and biggest should be taken for head; that the King long ago deputed commissioners for this, but the French commissioners, likewise deputed, either would not or had no commission to proceed according to the said agreement; that Wotton had declared this, to their King 15 or 16 days before, and was answered that he should await the Admiral's return, who asked him to tarry till the President came. The Admiral answered that he was never made privy to such an agreement; he would ask Mons. le President to say what was done. The President then said that Wotton had told part of the matter; and began "a very long tale" to the effect that an agreement to have the river viewed by the Admirals was disappointed, and afterwards Paget and Bouchetell went to view it, but Paget complained that he was misled by their guides, and then some Englishmen were sent to view it, and the Admiral sent some of his men with them but only to conduct them; the "figures and plattes" drawn by our men showed that either Kesques or Vielmonstier must be head, but those drawn by their men "showed the contrary," and finally they consented that in case it were found that they were longer and bigger than other branches one of them should be taken as head. This view the President supported by conjectural arguments, such as that if he and Bouchetel had made such an agreement they would surely have told the Admiral, and if any such agreement had been made there was no cause why it should not have been added in three or four words to the article of the treaty mentioning the river. The Admiral then said that Mons. de Sassy (as here they call Bouchetell) had told him plainly, in Mr. Paget's presence, that he never agreed otherwise; he himself never consented to their making such an agreement as Wotton alleged, and any agreement of theirs without him was invalid. Arguments which ensued on both sides given at great length, the final answer of the French being that no such agreement as Wotton pretended appeared to them to have been made, and if made it lacked the Admiral's consent; and therefore their master, being ready to fulfil the treaty, had commissioned his deputies to proceed according to it and required Henry to do the like; the branch found to be longest and biggest should be taken as head. Wotton said that his master was not likely to be content, seeing them go from what was once agreed. "'There hath been no such thing agreed,' quod the Chancellor.' 'I cannot let you,' quod I, 'to take it as you will, but his Majesty and we must take it to be as I say; and in case his Majesty consent that his commissioners shall proceed as you would have yours do, as for me, I never look to live the day to see them agree no more than they did before the conclusion of the treaty.'" They replied that measurement would make the matter plain and might be done in a day or two. Beaulne, 29 Sept. 1546. Signed.

St. P. xi.,
Touching the agreement betwixt us and the President and Bouchetell these men have found a sure starting-hole in that it cannot be proved that the Admiral consented, and by their commission they might do nothing without him. Our commission was larger; but I reckoned assuredly that it was done by his consent, and marvel why they stick so much in this matter, seeing that upon trial it will appear that either Kesques or Vielmonstier must needs be the head, and these men will have only "declared how truly they mean in their proceedings." The French king has advertisement from sundry places that Mons. de Bure has joined the Emperor, and yet the Admiral said it was not certain. If it be so indeed, the Protestants were very indiscreet to suffer so small a number to pass so far, when, if they had been overthrown, the Emperor would have tarried no longer in Germany, and their arrival puts the success of the Protestants in hazard. Hears that el Signor Petro Strozzi a while ago went from this Court to the Protestants,— "not sent (as it is said) by the King, but I doubt much whether the Emperor will take it so. And in case the Emperor agree with the Protestants or have any good success against them, who can tell whether that may be occasion of some business betwixt the Emperor and the French king?" The Emperor's ambassador says that Strazzeburgh and Ausperg mutiny against their rulers and refuse to spend more in war against the Emperor, who promises that he intends nothing against them, but only against certain rebels. As the example is important, so, I think, the citizens will sore repent their folly.
Has just received a packet of letters from Strazzeburgh, containing a letter from Paget and a packet directed to him (sent herewith). At length the French king has sent him a present. Was told that it could not be made sooner, but nothing in it seems new wrought, and it includes two cups which Wotton himself sold at Paris. Sold them naked but they have returned burnished and coated with good cases; and, as he had them as cheap at first as now, he will sell them again trusting that they love him so well that they will not be long away.

St. P. xi.,
Signor Polyn, baron de la Garde, arriving on Monday last (fn. n3) had audience the same afternoon; and, after delivering the French king's autograph letters, spoke of the fortification and the throwing down of their works by the King's ministers, making an overture for commissioners to determine what either party might justly do by the treaty. The King answered that Lord Gray's attempt was done without his knowledge, "and so waded further in that matter" as in the Council's letters from Chobham; and his Highness agreed to the sending of commissioners as soon as possible, naming for his part Lord Cobham, deputy of Callais, Sir John Walloppe, knight of the Order and Governor of Guisnez, and Sir Thomas Seymour, of the Privy Chamber, uncle to the Prince. This answer was made by the Council and afterwards confirmed by the King. Polyn then entered suit for the galley and all the prisoners, but marred it by maintaining that she was no good prize, finally requiring that the commissioners for the fortification should determine that point. The King answered that it would touch his honour to deliver her as requested, for then it would appear that he had kept her unjustly, and therefore he would take Polyn's suggestion to have the case tried and afterwards do as he saw occasion. Upon Polyn's request for St. Blankerd's going home upon sureties, the King appointed me, the Secretary, to travail with his taker; and it is agreed that he comes home upon condition to surrender when called upon.
Because the determination of the river's head, agreed among the late commissioners for the peace to be ordered by other commissioners and limited, as Wotton knows, either at Kekes or Vilmountiers, has hitherto taken no effect, the Council requested that these new commissioners for the fortifications might, as of more authority, assist those for the river's head; and this Polyn liked well and promised to make relation thereof.
Finally Polyn spoke of the misery of the prisoners on both parts, and the King is content (in case the French king signify his contentment by his ambassador here resident) that by a day to be agreed upon all prisoners except St. Blankard shall be freely discharged home. This Wotton shall, with the rest above written, declare to the French king and learn his mind therein, soliciting the sending of personages for this new commission and signifying what day they shall meet, so that ours may not have to tarry 16 or 20 days for them as hitherto.

Bearer, the baron de la Garde will report. Foresees that he must fall into great want unless the King, by the Admiral's means, grant him the diets which ambassadors here had before Marillac's time. They might better have lived on half the 20 fr. a day which they had than he can now on the whole, so excessively is the price of everything here advanced by the late wars and great taxes. Living meanly among people who by nature despise our nation, I should render my business and myself so contemptible that they would pay no regard to anything coming from me; and they would think that still less regard was shown to them when a man who lived in that way was sent. Understands that Chancellor Poyet was the cause of the retrenchment, by which he saved the King about 3 fr. 17 sols, a day, which would aid a poor ambassador to do honor to his office and the service of his master.

R. O. What I have feared these ten days has happened, viz., that the King, seeing the long delay made by His Holiness in replying to me, has conceived the suspicion that he is mocked, and to-day sent the Grand Chancellor and Grand Master to remind me that two months have passed since I came hither and the King gave a wise answer to what I said on the Pope's behalf and was content to wait for the Pope's resolution thereupon; now that so long a time had passed, he would wait no longer and begged me to leave the country because my presence begins to be known and he does not wish his people to take offence or fall into error about it, and for that reason also I am not to go to Court but my passport shall be sent me; for myself I have been and am welcome, but of the practice there is no need to speak further. You may imagine what a salutation this was and how it displeased me, my labours thrown away by the slothfulness of those of Rome. "Et il pegio che mi fa per che sono patroni, voranno haver ragione loro." But I promise you they shall not defend it by reason, for I have reasons in plenty (fn. n4) and a tongue to speak. I answered that the answer must come soon; it was a long journey to Rome and you wrote that the letters came late to France; and the like. But to no purpose, for they told me resolutely that I must depart. I have this satisfaction, as I shall tell you by mouth, that I did all that could be done, and the King could not take excuse by any proceeding of mine. I shall leave within four days, by great journeys, to be with you and thence go to Italy. These gentlemen told me further that they will speak to the French King's ambassador, who will advertise his prince; from whom you will be able to learn better. I have no time to write to Rome (you may send this to His Holiness) as the Baron wishes to depart, who also was a le mie noce. London, 30 Sept. 1546.

R. O. Yesterday about 10 a.m. arrived a post from the Emperor certifying the Count du Buyre's safe arrival with him, on the 15th, at Englestate, whence this post was despatched. On the 18th, when the post left, the Emperor's army was complete, and the Landsgrave's camp had retired to Tunivere, 6 Dutch miles off, incontinent upon Du Buyre's arrival. The Emperor had sent part of his army to besiege Nuburge, 3 Dutch miles from Englestat, within which the Landsgrave had left 3,000 Zussiers; and the Emperor was going thither himself, for therein was the Landsgrave's whole provision of victuals and munition. The Emperor's men had already taken the suburbs and destroyed the surrounding country. To his whole army the Emperor made a brief exhortation, and ended by desiring them "to show themselves honest men, saying that he intended to entertain them all for 2 years." Some of those about the Emperor write to friends here that they trust yet to be here with the Emperor a great part of this winter. This day came a letter "from one of Mayenee, a brother to the Emperor's treasurer here (originally sent from the Fockers) that is wont to convey all the privy letters sent here hence to the Emperor, directed to him from the said treasurer as private letters, that the battle is foughten betwixt the Emperor and the Landsgrave already, and that there be above 36 thousand men slain of both parties, the Emperor remaining in the camp, the Landsgrave put to flight and all his men sparkled, all his ordnance taken to the number of 160 pieces; and that of the Emperor's part were slain 20,000 men, and a great number of this country, for the County du Buyer had the foreward." As yet the Lady Regent has no such news; so that Came can only write that it is believed here, and to have happened on St. Matthew's Day, (fn. n5) The King of Romaynes has invaded Sax with a great army of Hungariens and Boyems.
