The queen of Scotland has written to him and to the King's lieutenant to spare a poor religious house of nuns at Coldstream, the prioress of whom is very good and kind to her. She is also one of the best spies for England. Lately heard from her that the Queen is gone to Stirling, and has taken with her all the Frenchmen that were about her son. Monday after Palm Sunday the lord Lieutenant was with Dacre at Morpeth. The latter has undertaken that the Riddisdale men shall make redress for all the robberies committed by them since lord Rosse's departure, by the 1st of May. Ralph Fenwick has done the same for the Tynedale men, and brought in half a score of them as sureties. My lord Lieutenant and himself have made proclamations for injured persons to bring in their bills to them. Since his coming hither, strange to say, there have been no offences on either side. Seldom has there been peace so long. Alnwick, 16 April. Signed.

Arrived on Wednesday last. Went yesterday to see the ships. The Crist and Sir Robt. Jones's ship will be ready to go to sea on Thursday. In place of the Mawdelyn, of Alborough, has appointed a galleon of 40 tons, which was taken by Gonson's little boat, and has put the said boat in wages, for they row well, and it will not cost more than the first appointment. Recommends John Clogg as master and captain of the galleon, and a man of Gonson's, who took the galleon, as captain of the boat. Will not allow Gonson to go to sea, for he is almost lame of a sciatica. Will send John Care in his stead for this month. The galley will not be ready before that time, for Brigandine intends to break her up and make her carvel, "so as she now shall be made in every point as your grace devised." The Lesse Barke, the Rowe Barge, and the French prize will be at sea in 10 days, or sooner, if he can get men. Is obliged to send into the West country for them. Everything will be fulfilled, except setting forth the galley, "wherein your highness must have patience, for undoubtedly there is no remedy, for she was the dangeroust ship under water that ever man sailed in."
Last night, while writing, Henry Huttoft came to him from Hampton, and told him there was a ship of 400 in Hampton water, laden with alum and wax for France, which had been taken by a Spanish ship laden with English merchandize, so that the prize partly belongs to the Spanish owners and partly to the English merchants. The latter, fearing the Spaniards would take the prize to Flanders, asked the mayor to arrest it. He could not do this, but arrested the master and those of his company ashore. The master wrote to those in the ship not to regard him, but to do as they had been ordered. Wishes to know the King's pleasure, for it is evident they want to take her away, which would be a great loss to the merchants and to Henry, because of the custom. More goods have been recovered from the ship lost here, of which my lord of Chichester wrote to the Cardinal. Has no authority to interfere, but has charged every one not to embezzle them, and has sent John Flemyng to make a book of what has been found. The bearer, Christopher Gonner, can give him any information about his gailey. Portsmouth, Friday, 17 April. Signed.

A Spaniard named Francis de Victorie, a Dominican friar and doctor of theology, arrived at Bruges, eight days ago, from Paris, and on the pretext of illness wrote to me by one of his brethren that he had been charged by the bishop of Barry, the Pope's nuncio in France, to come to me and say that his Holiness had commissioned the Nuncio and others to procure peace among Christian princes. He offered, if I would write to the Emperor and Legate, to send the letters as far as Paris. Not knowing whether the Emperor and the King intend to continue the war, I did not choose to write either to the Legate or to the Doctor; but being solicited by his brother, and wishing to let the Emperor know the state of his affairs here, and the terms on which he stands with Christian princes and the Pope, I saw no other way than to pretend to wish for peace. I sent one of my men to the Doctor to learn further about his charge;—whether he was a man capable of managing great affairs, and whether the French king knew of his coming here, or if he was come to act as a spy. My man has reported that he finds him a man of the right sort, that the French king was cognisant of his charge, and would be glad to have a truce of eight or nine years with the Emperor and England, answering for his allies of Scotland and Gueldres, except in Italy. My man said it was not likely the King and the Emperor would listen to a half treaty. The other answered that some expedient might be found, even about Milan. Finding him so favorable, my man went beyond his charge, and entered into terms, upon which I should be inclined to treat, and urge the Emperor and the King to listen to. The other said such affairs were not so easily managed by letters as by a skilful negotiator, and that if he could obtain a safeconduct from the king of France for some person agreeable to the Emperor, I could send to him and to the King and you, and he felt sure the matter could be arranged without difficulty. For this purpose he has returned to France. Understand that if the safeconduct comes, and I send to the Emperor as above, it is to let him know the state of affairs here. Malines, 18 April '23.

Before my arrival a secretary of Albany's entering this country without safeconduct was taken and committed to the castle of Villefort, although he had special letters to the lady Margaret and to you. My Lady, taking the opportunity to learn what they have determined in France, has sent a person to the Legate now in France, on pretence of learning whether the Scotch secretary was sent for the matter mentioned in my Lady's letter, or not. He returned yesterday. My Lady said he passed with great difficulty, and found that the secretary really was sent for the cause mentioned in his letters; that the Duke of Albany is at his own place in France, and no preparations are made for sending him to Scotland; that the Legate was privy to the sending of this secretary, affirming that the Pope had inclined Albany to peace; and that the Duke desired her to get him conveyed surely into England.
I see that the motions for peace proceed principally from two persons in this court. An Austrian friar, D. D., lately made overture to me to this effect, merely to see if there were any disposition to peace in the King or you. My Lady says that by the last letters the Emperor was making great preparations for war, but she understood from Italy that he was very desirous of peace. She will send Marnix to you in three days, who will tell you what these countries will do this summer, according to the answers made by the townships to the requests at the last diet. I have lately received the confirmation of the treaty concluded at Calais in January. My Lady desires me to keep it till I know your pleasure about one thing, which she considers to be an error. A piece of gold, the least of three valued by us, is esteemed at 2s. 6d. sterling and 16 mites Flemish. They say the 16 mites should be 24 according to the rate of the other two pieces of gold, i.e. one third of the value of the greatest piece. Mechlin, 18 April 1523.
P. S.—My Lady will send you Albany's secretary next week.

2971. PAUL VAM VELDE to M. BARTHOLOMÆUS VAN DER LINDEN, and HENNING KULEMEYER, merchants of the Steelyard, London.
What complexion our war with king Christiern has assumed, you will learn from my master's letters. He has probably fled, for fear of his subjects and our elected King, to Scotland, intending to assist the king of Scots against England, and come back with Scotch and French auxiliaries. Hopes they will make friends in the interval. The English need not fear his fleet; he has no sailors, and hardly 600 soldiers. His sailors are taken from fishing boats, and no more fit to take care of a large ship than men who never saw the sea. Lubeck, 22 April '23. Signed.

Had promised to send certain jewels, plate, and stuff to Darcy, but Mr. Radclif objected to the directions taken at Templehirst, and especially to the delivery of any goods, "except ye were all agreed; and so he was sure Mr. Hussy said to him." Darcy writes that he has received only 98 wethers. Sent six score. Will bring the said stuff with him. Will overtake Darcy a day or two before he reaches London. The debtors to my Lord will not pay. The farms are in arrear. Bastard Tunstall has driven a herdman and 160 sheep of my Lord's off a pasture ground, and refuses to pay the free rent of 109s. 10d. at Tunstall; "and thus he over hobbys us and all the country." Divers gentlemen, who are surety for 400l. to be paid to the King, are anxious to be insured. Will bring the two inventories. Hears that he will be commanded to make a declaration of all his Lord's goods, and that a surveyor will be appointed over him; which has been procured by Mr. Starkey and others calling themselves friends to the young Lord.

On Friday last rode to Berwick to ascertain what assistance he could have thence in ordnance and carriage. Intended on Monday next to have assembled the power of Northumberland, with 700 or 800 men of the bishopric and the garrisons, to throw down some fortresses in Scotland. In going to Berwick spoke with Philip Dacre, sheriff of the shire, who told him "cattle was so poor," twelve oxen could not draw one pipe of beer ten miles a day; which their appearance confirmed. At Berwick found the ordnance nothing ready: the timber they should be stocked with came into the haven but on Sunday last. Must, therefore, delay his project. Will send to Yorkswold to hire ninety draught horses, and proceed on the expedition as soon as possible; but the ground is so wet with rain that no great ordnance can be carried till better weather. Dacre and his company of the West Border invaded Scotland on Monday last, burnt a market town called Annand, and some villages, and in their return the towns of Tronok and Dordof.
Hears from Scotland that the Danish ambassador is very ill treated by the Frenchmen, who say they will make him leave the kingdom, and that, in reply, he said he hoped to see them driven out. Surrey has helped his remonstrances against them by a letter to the queen of Scots, a copy of which, with her answer, he transmits. Is told much speaking is against them. The ambassador as yet has no answer; for the Lords will not meet till the end of this week, when it will be known what answer he will have. Hears the Queen is not content with the Frenchmen, and the commons universally cry out against them and the Duke. Has caused Magnus to deliver to Robt. Draper and Davy Miller, in way of prest, one month's wages and victual, "after the rate they have delivered unto me, the copy whereof your grace shall receive with this." It should be delivered to John Jenyns, that he may order the payments accordingly. Has heard nothing of Christopher Coo, nor of two ships of war which were to have come from Portsmouth.

Has received Darcy's last letter by Thos. Strey, and will send all the money he can by him, or some other sure messenger. Knows that his expenses have been very heavy, and doubts not that the King will consider it. Mr. Harry Savyle is in London, and is sorry that "he had not ordered him to your lordship, at his late being with you, as his duty was;" and he has asked Lyster to write and say that he wished to have Darcy for his good lord. He had appointed four or five of his own tenants within the honor to serve the King in his wars, at my lord Cardinal's command; and if he is allowed to have them, "he, and all he can make, shall be at your command, next the King and my lord his master." Mr. Husey is doing all he can in the matter of the [wardship] of Lord Mounteagle's son. The King has kept the ward in his own hand, but will favor Darcy and Husey, although it is said that he intends to give the issues to his own servant. Will be glad to get something toward the hospital and chapel as soon as he knows what is necessary. In parliament, Sir Arthur Plantagenet has been created viscount Lisle. Sir Thos. Boleyn, Sir Will. Sandys, Sir Morres Barkeley, and Sir Nic. Vaux have been made barons, and summoned by writ of the parliament. No Acts have yet passed the Lords or the Commons.

5. If more than 4,000 Germans can be sent, they had better go by Mantua, and not by the Grisons, because the Marquis is a faithful vassal of the Emperor.
6. Pedro de Burgos will be able to inform the Infant of the condition of the passes, because he will not pass himself without being made sure of them by Bartholomew de Mazii and a gentleman of Bourbon's in Como.
