2360. WAR with FRANCE.
Agreement between the Emperor and the King, when they were together, for an enterprise by land against the king of France.
It was arranged in the treaty lately made that the Emperor and the King should continue the war against Francis by land and sea, until each had recovered all that belonged to him, and what number of men-of-war each should furnish, both for the security of the sea and for invasion; but, wishing to provide by land for an effectual invasion, they have agreed that, besides the army of the Emperor in Lombardy and that on the Spanish frontier, when he arrives in his kingdom, another shall be prepared on the side of Picardy, as follows:—(1.) The king of England shall land at Calais, before the 1st August next, with a number of foot soldiers, archers and others, under a good captain; and six days after landing shall encamp near Tournaham. At the same time, he shall have ready a strong band of artillery, sufficient for two good batteries, all which are to be kept up at the King's expense for three months, viz., from 1 Aug. to 31 Oct., except only the ... and chariots for the conduct of the artillery and munitions. (2.) The Emperor, by the sixth day after the [arrival] of the English, shall also place in the field at Tournaham 250 men-at-arms of his ordnance and 1,000 good [men] of war, and 3,000 Almain foot under the command of Issilstein, count de Buren. These to be furnished by the Emperor at his own expense, and if the army by sea, which he has commanded to come from Spain, shall arrive in time for them, he shall cause 1,000 or 2,000 Spanish foot to disembark and join them; such number to be deducted from the 3,000 he is bound to keep upon the sea by virtue of the treaty. (3.) The Emperor will then join with the English artillery, 12 field pieces called falconets, and shall give order in Flanders, Artois and the neighbouring countries, for the victualling of the army at reasonable prices. (4.) The Emperor shall supply cart horses (chevaulx de lim[ons]) and chariots for the artillery, to be paid for equally by the King and Emperor. (5.) The two armies, under the command of De Buren and Surrey, shall first endeavor, if it be at all feasible, to besiege Boulogne, on which the generals and other captains shall deliberate. (6.) The generals shall appoint a certain number of their men of war to conduct victuals. (7.) The Emperor shall get ready 12,000 or 15,000 men of the Low Countries, to join his army as soon as possible.

I have informed the King of the taking of Morles, and other occurrences here. I trust you have sent more victuals after us, for we need them. Many of Fitzwilliam's ships are without flesh and fish, and I have to lend him some of mine. I have only beer for twelve days. It would be a pity to leave undone what we intend to assay for want of victuals, and it is dangerous to go further without. As soon as we have a wind, we shall depart hence, and "draw beyond the Trade," and we will not return as long as we have any beer, "though in return we should drink water." I wish letters of thanks to be sent to the lords and gentlemen here, who have deserved it highly. "Scribbled in the Mary Rose, within the haven of Morles." Thursday, 3 July.
Today we were weighing our anchors to go about other enterprises, when the wind changed, and we were forced to remain.

2363. DACRE to WOLSEY.
Has received his letter, dated Windsor, 17 June, bidding him come to the King's presence. Will do so as soon as possible. Remained here, attending on the lord Warden, because Albany had come forward with his ordnance, "who yet remaineth unskaled," as the lord Warden has written to the King. Cannot leave him if the Duke come forward. If he retires, will return home, stay there two days to set things in order, and then come up to the King with all diligence. If Wolsey do not require him, requests to be informed by a post that may meet him on the way. The lord Warden lacks nothing but experience of the country. Norham, 3 July. Signed.

Received his letter, dated Bishop's Waltham, 27 June, on Wednesday the 2nd inst. Understands that Piers Young, of Dover, is appointed to conduct such victuallers as resort to Calais, to whom Sandys is to deliver ammunition. As the French have been for a long time busy to do us displeasure, "methought it very expedient to prepare somewhat for our remedy;" and therefore caused Young to get his ship ready, and had furnished him before Wolsey's letter arrived. Retains 40l. in prest on a reckoning sent by Jenyns. Tuesday last, a priest, chaplain to two captains of Almains at St. Omer, delivered him a letter that the said captains and their companies had been dismissed by lady Margaret. They desire to be retained in the King's service, though they have been much solicited by the French. Sandys gave no direct reply. Has advertised Wolsey that Sir Rice's hundred horsemen have been sent to Guisnes, to defend the castle there. Two of the same Welshmen have come from their captain, complaining they cannot get victual and lodging there, and demanding remedy. Thinks they might better be kept at Calais. Newnam Bridge, 3 July.

Proclamation made on the Emperor's arrival that all horses and stuff be on board by tomorrow. In a skirmish at St. Quintin's, between Daryscot and the French, the Burgundians lost their standard-bearer. By letters from the marquis of Mantua, of the 20th, 500 men-of-arms and 12,000 French foot had arrived at Susa, a town of Savoy. They have since returned. Cremona will be relieved. As all the French troops will be concentrated on this side the mountains, the King and the Emperor must induce the duke of Milan to contribute to their enterprise. Ampton, 4 July.

Spinelly wrote yesterday the news received on their arrival. Enclose an extract of other tidings which came today by post. The Emperor's chancellor says the Venetians persevere in their obstinacy. It is feared that the French having abandoned Italy, 5,000 Swiss adventurers will be employed against the Emperor's Low Countries. As the war of Italy is, by the King's declaration, transferred to this side [the mountains], the Emperor should either invade Dauphinéhe aid of the duke of Milan and card. De Medici, or bear the charges of the enterprise on this side. The Emperor is very busy shipping his horses, and expects to leave in two or three days. Ampton, 6 July.
P.S. in Dorset's hand.—conjunction with Spinelly, who understands the King's business best. "I trwste youre grase vyle be conten vythe the same, and if note, your plesyr knohyne, I chale fole (follow) the same.

Commissioners for the musters are at Arras. Intends to go there to assist them. Their power there is too small to resist the enemy, who are fortifying themselves from day to day. The troops the King meant to send beyond the mountains cannot pass, and will come [to] this frontier. The flat country will be lost if not reinforced. Begs him to communicate his answer from the King. Sends him a horse. Has given orders to the captain of Gravelinges to look for a suitable one for him. [St. Omer's], 6 July.

[News received by the Emperor] "at Amptona, the 6th day of July, by letters from the marquis de Pescara and other captains, dated at Kasal, chief town of the marquis de Monferrato, the 19th day of June."
1. That 8,000 Gascons came to Susa and Turin with a great band of artillery, but had withdrawn to Avyllyana, in the direction of Dauphiné, and Prospero Colonna had since ascertained that they had returned to France. 2. The Imperialists in Monferrat had made two bridges over the Po to go against the French, which was now needless. 3. The duke of Milan had recalled the commissioners he had sent to Germany for 6,000 lanzknechts, and countermanded the succors prepared for him by card. De Medici. 4. The surrender of Cremona on the day appointed was expected with certainty. 5. They expected also to have the castle of Milan, and that the French intrigues in Switzerland would cease, as they had not received a favorable answer. 6. By letters from Lyons of the 5th June card. De Medici was informed that the French king and court that day removed to Paris. 7. The Cardinal had sent 30,000 ducats to the Emperor's army. 8. The viceroy of Naples arrived at Modona on the 19th, and was everywhere honorably received. 9. Since the reduction of Genoa, licence had been granted to the city to receive corn out of Naples and Sicily. 10. The Emperor has confiscated the goods of Fred. of Bossolo, who is more obstinate than ever for the French king, and given them to his cousin the marquis of Mantua, on condition that he should not repute him his cousin. 11. The Venetians every day "made [musters of] footmen and horsemen," for what cause was not known.

This morning, about two o'clock after midnight, received his letters, with others enclosed from my lord Marquis and Spinelly, containing Italian news. Gave them to the King, at his uprising, by one of the gentlemen of the Privy Chamber, and went to ask his further pleasure at the latter mass, when he gave charge to Sir Wm. Kingston to levy 300 pioneers in the forest of Dean, and letters will be made with all diligence that they may be at Dover on the 31st inst. Sir Christopher Beynham will command 200, and Kingston the rest. Sir Henry Marney is also ordered to provide 200 miners. The King is well pleased with Wolsey's "diligent advertisement." He thinks posts should be arranged between Dover and London, and Southampton and London, while the fleet remains in these parts. Christopher Coo "liketh his grace nothing, for he is more in boasting than in any good feat," as his letters, which the King is sending, will show. He sees great discrepancy between his letters and the report of the master who is bringing them, and thinks either some other man should be appointed, or some wise and substantial man joined with him to give the adventure on good occasion. By the master's tale, he thinks Coo might have boarded the galiotte of Dyepe at the rescuing of the three ships taken with corn, if he had as much regarded the King's honor and his own honesty as he does his own profit. The King does not approve of Spinelly's proposition for the invading of the Dollphanie by the Milanese, or for aid to be had of them for this year, for it will be enough for them to settle and defend their own. Asks Wolsey to be his gracious lord for this journey into Spain. Windsor, 7 July.

The pleasure with which he heard of the meeting of Charles V. with Henry is increased by the letters received from him at Windsor of the 21 June. Will do what he can to raise the money required, and put a stop to the depredations and burnings. The conjunction with England will make it easy to gain over the Swiss. The generals have kept the army quiet, not thinking it advisable to attempt anything whilst the affairs of the Swiss and the Venetians remain unsettled. The French have left Cremona, and are on their way to the mountains. Will lay siege to the castles of Milan, Cremona and Novara, as they cannot be stormed except at great expense. Octavian Fregoso and count Peter Navara remain prisoners for the present. Modoetia, 8 July 1522. Signed.

On Thursday last the duke [of Vendôme] came to Boulogne. It is reported that preparations are making to have a siege ... [New]nham bridge. [They have] now of late brought to Tyrwyn, Bulleyn and elsewhere, instruments to cut down the corn. There are not men enough in the garrison to save the corn. Will make the best resistance they can. Proposes to advertise Wolsey of all tidings from time to time. The said news "cam to me wylles that master Tresore[r was at the] castell and town ther" (i.e. Newnham Bridge). Begs that the matter of the arrears may be determined. 9 July.

Has received his letters this day. Sends a schedule of artillery for battery in the town. Would be glad if, in conformity with his letter, further provision might be had from England. Has received news from Vaux this morning, that the French have assembled 2,000 horse, with Swiss, lanzknechts and others, amounting to 10,000. Picardy is warned to raise as many as it can. They intend to encamp between Guisnes and Arde, in the place of the last triumph, and bring with them thirty pieces of ordnance; also a number of "flaks" and hurdles. The Swiss have not yet come to Montreuil; so it will be Saturday or Sunday before they reach Guisnes. The news is confirmed in a letter from the captain of Dorneham, and the rumor is that the French king is at Paris with a great puissance of foot, and Pont Remy is returned from the mountains. Begs Wolsey will remember his request for Adrian Dyar to be clerk of the council, because Nanfan is impotent, and his deputy is no man convenient. Speaks highly in favor of Adrian. Without Wolsey's interference Nanfan will not give up the office, as he has indented with his deputy for 8l. yearly. Newnham Bridge, 10 July. Signed.

Sends an account of the artillery taken by the Emperor to Spain, with the officers and gunners, two bands and batteries. There was but one battery before Masières, which was sent from here. That which was laid in the trenches at Tournay was of great length, consisting of 16 double courtaulx, 14 small courtaulx, the smallest of which could carry 10 or 12 lb. further than the Apostles you had before that town, which beat down the high tower. At the end of the account is a declaration of the artillery left in He?din's charge, except those in the frontier towns. The two falcons required by Wolsey shall be sent, with their munitions. The German gunners cannot be had so soon. The Emperor has taken so many, there are few left; but if Wolsey will send some one to treat with them, they shall be raised in six weeks or two months. Desires an account of the gun carriages and horses required, which will take time, and some one to negociate the matter. Had no time to try the forty gunners whom he lately brought to the King, being so hurried by the Emperor. The Great Chamberlain spoke of having John de Lusy. Will send him if Wolsey require it.

He thinks that diligent posts ought to be ordered; and that they are "not so diligently laid betwixt his highness and your grace towards Dover, Hampton, Dartmouth and the Scotch party as your grace believeth." There is news of the taking of Lekys by the French; that the King's company of his marches at Calais has been surprised, and some slain; that a large number of French ships is in the narrow seas.
One of the King's chamber, a freeman of London of the company of Woolpackers, has obtained a grant of incorporation for the said company, on which the King desires Wolsey's opinion, and what fine should be paid. This afternoon the King has been again in the forest, and slain a great hart and another stag. Easthamstead, 15 July.

Has visited Madame, according to his commission, who is willing to comply with the resolutions formed between the Emperor, the King and Wolsey. As the French are assembling a large body in Artois, and the numbers mentioned by Wolsey are not sufficient, he has proposed to Madame and her council to levy 250 horse in addition, which is not easy, on account of the expense. She is, however, content to do so, provided that she be indemnified for the expenses of the horse which are required for the artillery. She will also provide eleven or twelve barks to guard the fishermen. Thinks the offer should not be refused. Brussels,— (fn. 4) day of July. Signed.

On Tuesday the 15th, at 11 o'clock, sighted the mountains of Spain, named the Vryalles, on the coast of Asturias. On Wednesday reached La Redo, at which place "a certain boat of the town issued, and showed unto his majesty how there was twenty ships in the haven all ready, with 4,000 men; wherefore he was constrained, notwithstanding the wind being turned into the south- west, to withdraw himself to Saint Ander, six leagues thence, towards the Asturies, where he took port the same night."

Showed him, in his passage to his privy chamber, "the great business and travail which your grace hath sustained since ye came to London in setting forward his business." Explained to him the opinion of judge Pollarde, "and also what dexterity your grace used to defeat the said opinion, and what pain your grace hath also taken in ordering the new commission." Stated also Wolsey's purpose to execute the same on the spiritualty as upon the temporalty; and what pains Wolsey had taken in appointing the personages and number of the army for the rescue of Calais or Guisnes. After supper told the King he had more things to say, who forthwith called called Dr. Sampson, "when he heard me name the ambassador of Venice, so that, the said Doctor being present, I declared unto his grace the whole charge which your grace gave me concerning the said ambassador." The King is well content. As Dr. Sampson is writing to Wolsey, will say no more. Easthampstead, 17 July 1522.

As the Scots intend to invade England at the instigation of Albany, the King has sent garrisons to lie upon the Borders under valiant captains, and has made Shrewsbury lieutenant general, who is commissioned to repair to York, and summon the nobles to put the country in readiness, indenting with them for the number to be furnished by each. 2. He shall issue the King's letters delivered to him blank, addressing them to such nobles as he thinks "of power to make men" in all the counties named in his commission, that they may put themselves in readiness, and certify the numbers to him. 3. Besides the above counties, he should obtain certificates from the bishopric of Durham of the numbers that will attend him. 4. In order to intimidate the Scots, it will be expedient to publish the cause of his coming by proclamations. 5. He shall administer impartial justice in all causes, and repress and punish riots without loss of time, and certify the King of all occurrences from time to time. 6. During his abode in Yorkshire his diets to be at the rate of 1,000 marks a year; but when he goes against the Scots he shall have as large entertainment as the duke of Norfolk, then earl of Surrey, had as the King's lieutenant. 7. Is to endeavor, with Dacre's assistance, to learn the designs of the Scots. 8. The earl of Northumberland, lords Dacre, Darcy, Latimer, Percy, Conyers, and Sir Will. Bulmer to be of the secret council with him. 9. Such ordnance as he requires out of Berwick to be brought to Awnewike; about which Dacre is instructed. 10.

Finally, he desired them, if they would have the money, "that they woll upon the Emperor's part pre ... that be far off unto such time as they sh[all] ... to Antwerp or hither at their appointment."

"In ensuing your commandments yesternight, after the King's highness had supped, I made unto the same your grace's most humble and hearty recommendations, and also showed him how that I had perceived by your grace by the reason of your grace's early rising and long fasting of the day before, as well the indisposition of your body by reason of wind, as also the rheum which descended from your head; which considered, I showed his grace that I gave you my poor advice rather to rest your grace for a day or two, than to put yourself upon the water, which might rather be occasion of augmenting of the foresaid passions than otherwise. Wherefore I thought verily your grace might tarry and prolong your coming hither till Saturday; for which mine advice, I assure your grace, he could me little thank, in pleasant manner saying, 'Ye have given him no good counsel; for his coming hither should have been rather to his health than otherwise, and more to his consolation and pleasure.'
