2458. FITZWILLIAM to HENRY VIII.
Arrived here last night with the Emperor's army, as he has written at length to Wolsey. Sent for West to give him the King's charge about his journey westwards, but he says he is only victualled for a week, which is too little. The King must either send victuals immediately, or let the Mary James go instead; for the New found Island fleet is now surely coming home. West is the best man to go, for he has done his duty here right well, and deserves thanks. If his victuals cannot be sent, the Mary James would be fit to go; for though her captain has not served the King long, Fitzwilliam trusts his hardihood, truth and diligence. In the Downs, Thursday, 21 Aug., 11 p.m. Signed.

2459. FITZWILLIAM to WOLSEY.
Arrived with the Emperor's army in the Downs, late last night. This morning, captain Pyscaro, with the 2,000 Spaniards, went over to Calais. Remained to give orders for victuals for the Emperor's army at Sandwich. Will be at Calais tomorrow morning. Asked Lyscayne if he was willing to divide his ships, telling him he, himself, must go to Calais, and leave Gonson in his place. He said he had no answer from their ambassador, but thought his ships should not be divided, for his people were very ungracious, and were part of those who made the rebellion in Spain. He desired Fitzwilliam to send orders to Dover that none of his men should be allowed to cross to Calais without his passport, otherwise none would remain with him. Was told by West, who was to go westward, and give him his charge, that he had only victuals for a week. Wolsey must either send victuals immediately, or let the Mary James go in his place, which is still victualled for five weeks. "Though it be not long sithens Bawdewyn Willoughby, captain thereof, was made the King's servant, yet I dare be bound for his hardiness and truth." It would be too great a loss that the ships ordered westward should not be sent "before the coming home of the New found Island's fleet."
On his return from the Wight, sent the captain of the Mary James, with two other ships, over to Seyne Head, who came so near, that he saw the bulwarks and ordnance and the ships in the New Haven. He says the great ships have not their tops on, and that there were about thirteen small ships before the harbor's mouth, the greatest not above 100, lying so near the shore that they could not be meddled with. He could not tell whether they were men-of-war or merchants. Yesterday, in coming hither, took a boat which came from Trayport the day before, with four men, going to Rye, for certain French prisoners. Examined them man by man. They say there is no army by sea, prepared in France. Gonson caused a native of Jersey to lie with one of the Frenchmen all night, under hatches, and say he was a Norman born, waiting for his ransom, and to sound him well whether there were any preparation. The Frenchman said he knew of none, except nine sail at Boulogne, Dieppe and Treport that went on their adventure; that the King had sent down to induce them to make more ships, offering to bear part of the charge, but none would venture. Has examined West and others, whether any Frenchmen have gone northwards. Can hear of none stirring. The galleon of Dieppe has come home from the north, and has sold divers prisoners in England. Would to God she might be met with! Begs to know Wolsey's pleasure by Gonson. The men's wages will expire shortly, as Mr. Sidney and Mr. Jennings can show. Lyscanne still bears the flag, but comes every night under Fitzwilliam's lec. It does not become him to advise whether the Emperor's admiral should bear his flag. Finds, however, that Lyscanne, being Admiral for king Fernando in the last war, came to the Wight, and rode at the Cowe, our fleet being at Hasleworth, where the one might see the other, and then he bare his flag. This year also the admirals of Flanders have borne theirs in the Narrow Seas. Thinks, therefore, it would be impolitic to bid him put down his flag, considering the high minds of the Spaniards. In the Downs, Thursday night. Signed.

2460. LONGOLIUS to REG. POLE.
Was very desirous of paying an early visit to Pace. Will comply with Pole's advice, not from any fear of interrupting his studies, but that he may not be in the way at the meeting of two friends (Pole and Pace) so intimate as they. Has often told Pole of the kind reception he had experienced from Pace when in England. Speaks of Pace's abilities and genius for statesmanship. Hopes Pace will soon be at Padua, as he is impatient to see him. Padua, 11 kal. Sept.

Asks his advice for "this poor man," and to help him find out where one Glaskeryon, dwelling in Westminster, was, on Lady Eve all night and Lady Day. Asks him to send news. Intends to marry on the Sunday after St. Bartholomew. Wishes him to send his brother's writs "by the first." Bartholomew Even.

2462. BANNISIUS to MARGARET OF SAVOY.
"The copy of a letter sent from Mr. James Bannisius, which letter my Lady sent unto me by (Wingfield) her treasurer Marnix, after that she was returned this 1st Sept. 1522 from Zealand."
I wrote to you on the 19th of the arrival of the Pope at Villafranca, near Nice, on the 13th. They say he was with the Emperor some days, for his majesty had come by post. His Holiness was to enter Genoa on the 17th, when the duke of Milan, the marquis of Mantua, Prosper Colonna, the marquis of Pescara, the abbot of Najera, and all the leaders of the army had assembled to salute his Holiness, for he was not going to remain in Genoa more than a day. Thence he was to sail to Civita Vecchia, thirty Italian miles from Rome. The Emperor's army in Italy is divided in different stations. The foot have gone to storm Lechy and Tretium. They were going to move their engines against Novara; but the captain of the castle made a composition with count Corniele, the chief of the city, that if the castle was not relieved before Michaelmas it should be surrendered; but he first demands nine months' pay, which he says the French king owes him. This composition is very unpopular with the captains. There is news from Venice that the Rhodians have repulsed the Turks, who assaulted the city for two days continuously. 18,000 Turks were slain, and eight triremes sunk. Ric. Pace has come to Venice. I do not know what good he can do. Trent, 23 Aug. 1522.

2463. FITZWILLIAM to WOLSEY.
Has this day received his letter, dated Westminster, the 20th, commanding him to remain at sea. Will be in the Downs tomorrow, and join with Lyscanne. Hopes the King will not be displeased that he has come to Calais, as Wolsey, at his departure, commanded him to land here if the French had not passed the Downs northwards. Heard from ships in the Downs that my lord Admiral would set forward in two days, which caused him to make so great haste. Hopes, now he is going to sea, that he will be no more countermanded. Will report in his next the condition of the King's army by sea, which he hopes will be looked to immediately.
The Foyst, which had sixty men, is leaky and unserviceable. Begs Wolsey to order six boats and sixty men from Rye, which will cost no more than the Foyst did. Calais, Sunday 24 Aug.
If hereafter he receive orders to join my lord Admiral, will do so if he can come hither before he leaves. Signed.

2464. SIR ROB. WINGFIELD to WOLSEY.
Wrote last from Bruges on the 20th, by my fellow York. Last night I came to Barrowe, and remain here, by the advice of Berghes, till my Lady come, who is expected on Wednesday or Thursday next, for today she leaves the Haye. Had I set out to meet her, I might have failed, as much of the way is by sea, and the bishop of Utrecht came from her last night, and all the estates of Brabant have been here waiting for her for eight days. I learn from the Bishop and from Berghes, who came from her two days ago, that the duke of Gueldres is disposed to be troublesome. It will be hard to purvey money for the enterprise, if they have war with him; but all these countries are much rejoiced that the King's army has landed on this side the sea, and will be ready to supply them with victuals as soon as they are gathered in the field. Though the year is so far on, "I trust it shall please God to grant so fair and long a Michaelmas summer, that some goodly exploit shall be made." Barrowe, 25 Aug. 1522.

2465. LONGOLIUS to POLE.
Is in great pain; and is scarce able to write this last letter, the dying token of his love. The day after his last to Pole, was taken with a violent fever, and has suffered more during the last three days than ever he did in his life. Had, by a sort of prescience, shown Pole his library just before he started, expressing a wish that if anything happened to him during Pole's absence Pole should possess it. That event was nearer than either of them expected. Commends his memory to Pole's friendly offices, and desires to be remembered to Pace. Padua, 8 kal. Sep.

2466. FLORYS [COUNT D'ISSELSTEIN] to HENRY VIII.
Believes the King is aware he is confined to his bed by illness. His chief regret is that he is unable to serve the King and the Emperor. Hopes soon to be better. By arrangement with the Admiral, the two armies are to take the field tomorrow, the 27th. Has put Bevres in his place, to act with Du Reux, Egmonde, Wassenaere, Beaurains, the seneschal of Hainault, &c. St. Omer, 26 Aug. 1522. Signed.

R. O. 2468. [ALBANY] to [SIR ANT. UGHTRED,] CAPTAIN OF BERWICK.
"The man at ze have send Clerenceoux lettres hes seyne thaim and thanks zou." He desires to have the safeconduct that Clarencieux sent to the captain, which he has been in want of for three months; and though it has arrived late "he sal not do les nor to help of his power at all games, weill and in gud peax and concord." He wishes to see what surety may be had by the safeconduct; for lately a pursuivant, called Carrick, sent with Clarencieux, was arrested, so that it was needful "to racheit and bay him," against law and reason. It is rumored that Dacres, who detained the pursuivant, has full power to make truce. The man who requires the safeconduct wishes to know the truth from the captain.
P. 1. Add.
R. O. 2469. ii. The CAPTAIN OF BERWICK to [ALBANY].
Has received his letter, and understands the contents very well. Albany desires the safeconduct to see it, because he would have two months' respite, and would know what surety may be taken in consequence of the detention of Carrick. The captain has the safeconduct, which is made according to tenor of Albany's letters sent to Clarencieux. As many names as Albany wrote in his letter shall be inserted, or more if he please. Will deliver the King's safeconduct to the said personages, if they are sent to him. If Albany is not satisfied, he may send a secret servant to Aytoun, who will be conducted to Berwick to commune with the captain, and shall see the safeconduct, and have free liberty to return. Berwick, "by the hand of the captain of the said town."
Copy, p. 1. Below the letter is written: "The first letter that the Duke sent to me, and the answer thereof."

2470. ALBANY to the CAPTAIN OF BERWICK.
Has seen his writing about the safeconduct which he has in his hands. Will send his servants with the bearer to Aytone, where Ughtred must have them received and conveyed safely. Except for the esteem in which he holds Ughtred, and his desire to see everything brought to a good end, would not trust any of his servants in England, after the ill-treatment of Carrick pursuivant, who was forced to pay ransom. However, on Ughtred's word, sends a herald. Wishes the safeconduct to be given to him well closed for secresy, and to be sent as soon as possible. He has not answered the part in his last letter touching lord Dacre. Asks for a speedy reply. Edinburgh, 27 Aug. Signed.

2471. FITZWILLIAM to WOLSEY.
Received last Sunday at Calais Wolsey's letter, commanding him to return to the sea. Showed it to the Admiral and the Council, who advised him to obey immediately. Arrived on Tuesday at Sandwich, where he met Le Prat, who told him that victuals were ready for the Emperor's army, and that the resolution taken by Wolsey would have effect. Has been somewhat sick for five or six days. Had a very dangerous crossing, and the weather has been so stormy ever since that Luscanya has not been able to land, nor Fitzwilliam to go and speak with him; but hears by the Emperor's ambassador and Gonson that he is content with the division of his ships. Last night received Wolsey's other letter, bidding him return to Calais and go with my lord Admiral. Will take shipping today, and be there tonight. Sandwich, Thursday, 28 Aug.
P.S.—Lascanya has arrived. He is satisfied with the arrangements, and very glad to have Gonson with him, saying he has his instructions from their ambassador, but will be glad to do anything for the King that Gonson may show him. Signed.

2472. JAMES BETTS to WOLSEY.
His fellow, Richard Palshide, customer here, is sick, and not likely to recover. Hears that Coke, the bishop of Winchester's registrar, has gone to Court to ask the King for the office, for which he is quite unfit, being neither of substance nor reputation. The place has always been filled by "honest men, myself excepted." Asks his favor for Harry Huttoft, of this town, who was brought up in his youth under Sir John Dawtrey, Betts' predecessor, and was always ready to instruct Betts at his first coming. He is a man of gravity and substance, and one of the best of the town.
The bishop of Winchester has been dangerously ill. Hampton, 28 Aug.

2474. UGHTRED to [ALBANY].
Has received his letter dated Edinburgh, 27 Aug. Thanks him for trusting him. As to Carrick's detention, can answer for no man's deeds but his own, but thinks Dacre will give reasonable answer when need requires. Would not for 20,000l. ill treat the herald he has sent. Cannot send the safeconduct into a strange realm, but sends a verbatim copy, and will give the original to Albany's servants when they come to Berwick. Will have them safely conducted thither from the Borders. As to the credence of Albany herald, Dacre has full power to make abstinence of war and peace. Did not answer the question in his former letter, because he had not spoken with Dacre. His part is to desire the tranquility and weal of both the realms, and he thinks Albany does the same. "And in all the premises and letters that hath been made between you and me, hony soyt que mal i pans." Berwick, 29 Aug., "with the hand of the captain of the said town."

2475. FITZWILLIAM to HENRY VIII.
On Sunday last received at Calais a letter from Wolsey in his own hand, commanding him to remain at sea. Being advised to comply immediately, arrived at Sandwich on Tuesday night, and on Wednesday morning received another letter from Wolsey, stating that the King now wished him to return to Calais. Arrived last night, and was told today by my lord Admiral the King wished him to join my lord Curson in the office of master of the ordnance in the war on this side the sea. Hopes the King will not be displeased at his answering that he had only arrived the day before, and would set forward tomorrow. He had not been at the receipt of the ordnance, and did not know how much had been delivered, a great part being already in small parcels of bows, arrows, bills and pikes. Was quite willing to serve under Curson, or any other, in besieging a town, or taking charge of certain pieces of ordnance. Calais, Friday, 29 Aug. Signed.

I. Margaret to Dacre.
Has received his letters by both her servants. Was always anxious for peace. The lord Chancellor cannot come to treat with him till she knows what are Dacre's powers, especially as he has written that he has no power, though Shrewsbury has. Begs information on that head. If the King will treat with her, will labor in that behalf. Albany is well disposed. Edinburgh, 30 Aug.
Hol., pp. 2. Add. at ƒ. 150b: "To my lord Dakares."
II. "Copy of the lord Dacre's answer made to the queen of Scots' letter next afore."
Has received her letter of the 30th. Has no authority, but is sure the King is well disposed to peace. The longer it is delayed, the more difficult it will be. Thinks, if she will take means to prevent the invasions on both sides, it will be to her honor. Would undertake to stop the King's army for a time. Norham Castle, 31 Aug. 14 Hen. VIII.
III. "Copy of a secret letter sent from the lord Dacre to the said Queen, answer of her credence."
By the credence of Thos. Frew learns her desire to know secretly if peace may be had whilst Albany is in Scotland. Fears she will disclose his counsel. "If it might be studied by the councils of both the realms that the King your son might be in some sure keeping out of all suspection, my said sovereign lord doth esteem the said Duke's presence in Scotland but as another prince being subject under a king." Begs her to burn his letter. Norham, 31 Aug. 14.
IV. Queen Margaret to Dacre.
Has received his letter (No. II.) Will use her utmost for peace and concord. Desires him to act without dissimulation. Taxes him with contradiction in his letters, stating that he has no power, yet undertaking to stop the army. Submitted his letters to Albany, who showed to her letters received by him from the captain of Berwick, stating that Dacre had full power to conclude all manner of peace, as well as a truce for a time. The bearer will show him at greater length her and Albany's mind. Edinburgh, 3 Sept.
P.S.—Has sent John Cantley.
Hol., pp. 3. Add.: "To my lord Dakars."
V. "Copy of a letter sent by the lord Dacre to the queen of Scots, answer of her letter of her own hand next afore, and of certain articles made by the duke of Albany."
Though he has no authority to take peace, yet he might have done it for the good of the two realms. Touching the credence of Cantley and her letter by Thos. Frew, has received certain articles from the Duke, which he thinks reasonable. If she will move Albany and the Estates for twelve days' consideration of the same, thinks Henry will be content with it. Grindon Rig, betwixt Etell and Ford, 6 Sept. 14.

Some days ago the Queen showed him the answer she had received "fra thyn" for the means of coming to some good concord; but since "her grace in the meantime that I wrait and send you the last message, has sped away, and made answer to that effect, and in that matter, I would notht intromit therewith in the meantime, and quhile her grace had answer, and understand her intention thereupon after her answer, as said is, quhilk being had and made, if it beis needful, I shall do it on your word and saying."

2478. [EXTRACTS from the DUKE OF MILAN'S LETTERS.]
On the 21st (fn. 1) of August, when we were going to Milan [from] Monza, and the dust was so thick that we could scarcely see each other, we caused all the horse to separate from us, and went on afterwards with a few servants. Among these was Bonifacio Conti on a tall Turkish horse, who, awaiting his opportunity, spurred his horse, and struck the Duke in the back with a small dagger, but only slightly wounded him in the left shoulder, and escaped by the swiftness of his horse and his knowledge of bye ways. Fearing that the dagger might have been poisoned, returned to Monza, where the wound was dressed, and there was found to be no danger. Then came to Milan. When the Milanese heard the news, they took up arms, some rushing to the gates of the city, and others to the walls, as if against an enemy. Some reconnoitred the city to detect treason, and surrounded the houses of suspected persons, throwing several into prison. On inquiry it was found that several had conspired against him, among whom it was agreed to attack him on the 24th of this month at Pavia or Monza, or on the journey, and, having killed him, to break into Milan with a body of outlaws, occupy his palace, murder Hieronymo Morono and the senators, and proclaim the king of France, who, it is said, is awaiting the news at Lyons, where he is now with his army, ready to occupy the duchy of Milan if it had succeeded.

On the 19th inst. Spinelly left Valencia for Valladolid, for the benefit of his health. He was suffering from dysentery and inflammation of the lungs. On St. Batholomew's Day (24 Aug.) he had written to De Pleine to send him a physician. Had written to the Emperor to send him his physician Master Liberal, which he did, though he was at that time attending his sister the Queen and the Chancellor. Spinelly made his confession to a monk sent by De Pleine, and dictated his will. On the 26th the Emperor arrived at Valladolid, when De Pleine found Spinelly in his perfect mind fully prepared. The same day he was carried to the House of the Observants; would admit no doctor; drank nothing but water, and expired. He had requested De Pleine to be his executor. Begs also that Wolsey will give credence to Brian Tuke. Had opened the boxes in the presence of Thos. Touchet, and delivered him the ciphers. Valladolid, 31 Aug. 1522.

6. To make the King's commendations to the Constable and other nobles of Spain, and express the King's resolution to cement the amity of the two crowns.
7. To visit the queen of Portugal and the lady Katharine, if they chance to be near, and express the same.
