3265. KNIGHT to [WOLSEY].
On the 22nd a messenger from Ghent came to court with a letter to my Lady from the four members of Flanders, complaining of injuries done by the King's subjects to some persons at Dunkirk. A copy has been sent to the Emperor's ambassador in England. After hearing the letter read in council, she sent Marnix to desire Wingfield to write about it. She has been told the Emperor's subjects can get no justice in England. Wrote in his last that Berghes and Holstrat thought everything required by Bartholomew Tate could be had without difficulty, except the wagons; but since the officers of artillery have returned, who were not present at first, they are doubtful also of the number of horses for carriages, and the gunners for the great pieces.

3266. PACE to [WOLSEY].
Wrote his last "being with the duke of Ferrare, comprising the good resolution that the said Duke had taken with the Emperor against France." Departed from him "towards this city of Milan," and passed by Mantua, where he was honorably received, and lodged in the castle. The Marquis came in the morning to visit him, and carried him to dinner to a palace of his, four mile distant, all the way expressing his anxiety to serve the King with 2,000 light horse, as he had offered the bishop of Bath. Before Pace reached Milan, the Duke had sent one of his men to welcome him, affirming that he had recovered his duchy by the help of England. The same day that Pace entered Cremona, tidings came that the Duke had been slain by one of the French faction, and that a great number of banished men were ready to invade divers cities of the duchy; but two hours after a letter came from the Duke, stating that by a notable chance he had escaped, "for when the said traitor was giving his stroke with a short dagger, intending to thrust the same into his body as far as he might by all his power, his cap fell into his eyes, whereby he was so tro[bled]" * * *

Has shown the bearer, Sir Thomas More, divers matters to declare to the King. It has been usual, even when the parliament has been right soon finished, to give the speaker a reward of 100l. for his household, besides the 100l. ordinary. The King is aware of the faithful diligence of More, in the late parliament, about the subsidy, so that no man could deserve it better. Will therefore cause the sum to be advanced on learning Henry's pleasure. "I am the rather moved to put your highness in mind thereof, because he is not the most ready to speak and solicit his own cause." Hampton Court, 24 Aug.

Has received his writing this St. Bartholomew even. Thanks him for his good mind towards herself and her son. Surrey knows how she solicited him to intercede with the King for her son's welfare, and the good answer which Henry made her, and how Wm. Hedrington was sent to her, to whom she showed her full mind, to explain to Surrey, viz., that the King could never have a better opportunity of befriending her son, and winning Scotland from France. Would be glad to follow Surrey's advice, that her son might come forth, and be at liberty, but that depends on Henry. The Lords stand in awe of Albany, or look to him for gifts. The King has assayed this realm with neither policy nor force, and that is the way to bring it to a good point. The Lords will not desert the Governor, without some assurance that they will be supported. If this were given, they would "be good Scotchmen to their King."
Desires Surrey to send to the King in all haste, to know his mind, for the Lords are to meet in Edinburgh on Monday come eight days, till which time the parliament is continued. They will then decide whether to liberate the King, or keep him for the Governor's pleasure. There is not in the world a wiser or better hearted child, "nor that der bettre take upoun hym in as fer as he may;" he wants nothing but help in his good quarrel. He loves not the Governor "nor no Frenchman." "And as to his coming forth at freedom, he will not bide in no langer than Monday come eight days without he be holden by force," and says no good Scotchman will hold him in a house against his will. The French are much displeased, and try to stop it by giving money. Hopes Surrey will tell the King and Wolsey, that she may do much good, but the King must either send an army to make the Lords forsake the Governor, or get them to do so by gentle means. Her son trusts more in the King than in all the world. When Wm. Hedrington left her, she expected other things would have been done, "which methinks have gone aback." If so, she will never trust good words again.
Wishes Henry would write to the Lords to give them occasion to forsake the Governor; and if they refuse, he will have a good quarrel against them. Surrey writes that Henry wishes her to come away, and that she shall be honorably treated. Does not wish to remain in Scotland if the King, her son, do not come forth. Hopes he will solicit that she may come away, for she will get no good, except through the King. "And a sobar thing that I had of the Governour, he has caused to take it from me thir thre monethes, and he has dischargied it." Will be compelled to pawn her cupboard, which is not to the King her brother's honor. Desires Surrey's advice what to do, that she may know before the day. "And failing of this ye will never get sic time, for come the Governor, as they trust he will, ye will not get it so easily done." As to the peace, about which Hadrington was sent to her, wishes the King would offer it, at her request, that she may be the doer of it. Edinburgh, St. Bartholomew's day.

Titus, B. I. 323. B. M. St. P. I. 125.
Yesterday the King received a letter from his Viceadmiral, dated 14 Aug., and is very well satisfied with his proceedings. Agrees with Wolsey as to the two ships to be sent under Sir Anthony Pointz. Is satisfied with Wolsey's answer to the imperial ambassador, and thinks that the Emperor should not allow any safeconduct for traffic between his subjects and France. One Thomas Murner, a Franciscan friar, who wrote in defence of the King against Luther, is come over to England, having been told by a simple fellow that the King wished to see him. The King desires out of pity that he should return, for he is one of the chief stays against the faction of Luther, and orders Wolsey to pay him 100l. The same simple person has now brought with him to England a baron's son of Almain, saying the King would like to have him in his service, with letters from duke Ferdinand, desiring a pension for the duke of Mecklenburgh. He boasted that he was the King's servant, and now says he is in the service of the Emperor's majesty, but the King does not know him; and he wishes for Wolsey's advice on these points.
The King has ordered that, besides his fee of 100l. as speaker, More shall receive 100l. out of the Exchequer. Easthampstead, 26 Aug.

"Copy of the letter to be showed by the Queen to the lords of Scotland."
Wonders she has not received the King's answer to her letter, which he sent long ago to be conveyed to her by Dacre. Supposes it has been intercepted by the French. (fn. 2) It was to the effect that the King had been informed by Dacre her letter had been devised by the Frenchmen, in order that he might state to her what ways he would use for the sake of peace. He had, therefore, thought it better not to answer it, and informed her that he would never desist from war so long as the Scots accepted Albany as their governor, but if they would abandon him, he would take their part against all others. All the wise men of England wonder that the Scots allow themselves to be so much abused by the Duke, who has done them so much injury. (fn. 3) They know what title his father pretended to the crown, and it is thought that he is not less ambitious, considering the injuries he has done ever since his arrival in Scotland, and the way he has gathered great part of the coin to his own use. On his first coming he beheaded the Chamberlain, principally, as it is believed here, on account of his loyalty; the second time he sent away the earl of Angus, who came to him upon the surety of his promise; and at this third time, if he should come, he will probably attempt something against the young King,—which the lords of Scotland may avert, if, now that he has broken his day prefixed, they will remove their King, and take upon them the government of his realm, in doing which Surrey will always be ready to defend them. The Scots have small reason to love the Duke, seeing that he trusts no Scotchman in his privy council or about his person, and puts the strongest holds of the realm into the hands of Frenchmen. Whenever he has a disagreement with any Scotch lord he strikes off his head, or sends him to France. It is a pity there is no prison in Scotland to put noblemen in, but that they must be sent to France, and the treasure of Scotland spent by Frenchmen. Pity that the nobles do not remember better what their ancestors have done for their king and realm, for "now is the time they may with their honors take upon them." As to aid from France, the French king will be within eight days invaded by so many powerful armies that he will have enough to do to defend his own country. The Venetians have abandoned him, and the duke of Ferrara, who is chosen knight of the Garter. Almost all Italy is combined against him. As the King understands that the last day prefixed by the lords for Albany's coming is Monday next, he has bid Surrey desist from doing any harm to Scotland till then, hoping that the lords will take upon them the government, and make means to him for peace.

"Not to be showed to the lords of Scotland, but such as the Queen doth trust."
Yesterday, the 25th, received her letter dated at Edinburgh on St. Bartholomew's day. Thanks her for writing so much with her own hand. Wm. Edrington never spoke a word to him of either of the two ways she mentions to bring the Scots to abandon Albany, but Surrey will be ready at all times for either. If she can contrive to get the Lords to take out the young King, Surrey will be ready at an hour's warning to come to the Borders, and make arrangements for his security. If he may be sure that they will so continue, they shall lack neither men nor money for their defence; if not, Margaret will hear of no little hurt done to Scotland shortly after; which till now Surrey has forborne, trusting that, on the failure of Albany to come by the day appointed, the Lords would abandon him. The King will rejoice to hear of the good towardness and boldness of her son, and how like a noble mother to her son, and a good natural sister to him, she conducts herself.
As to what Margaret says, that the King has neither tried policy nor force with Scotland, she is aware that more hurt has been done this summer that in any war for many years past, and the time of year has come round when more may be done. As for policy, knows not by whom it can be conducted better than by herself, to whom he and lord Dacre have fre- quently written to make good offers to the Lords. Has full power to treat and conclude with the Scotch lords, who, she says, are willing to take part against Albany, if they be supported. Assures her that the French king will be immediately invaded in so many places that he will have more need to defend his realm than send men to Scotland.

"This article not to be showed to the Lords of Scotland."
As to Margaret's coming to England, if the Lords will not do as she would have them, she might find means to get them to make her mediatrix, that the poor people of the borders of Scotland should not be destroyed by burning of their corn. She might then come to her house at Bonkle, to entreat for the same, bringing all her stuff, plate and jewels; and Surrey would come with a power, and carry her away. Surrey and Dacre did not think it right to deliver the pair of beads she sent to lord Maxwell by William Hedrington. He is too wise a man to allow her to pass into England by his country.
Added in Surrey's hand: "Madame, this schedule is not to be showed. And as to the greater letter, I think it convenient to be showed to the Lords and Counci; and as to the less letter, your grace may do therein, in showing the same, as ye think best."

3274. KNIGHT to [WOLSEY].
My Lady has received letters from the duke of B., who desires eight or ten days beyond the time agreed, before declaring himself. Lautrec, governor of Guienne, "est de conjuratis," and eight or ten men of that country are continually soliciting to increase their strength. The count Felix, who promised to bring 10,000 lanceknights to the Duke before the 25th, has gone for the purpose towards the Rhine, reporting that he is assembling men for the king of Denmark. Thus they hope to avoid suspicion till the Duke is ready. The Emperor has paid the wages of that number for one month ending 11th Sept., when they enter into the King's pay. Memoranci was lately with the Swiss, demanding 6,000 men for the wars beyond the mountains; but when it was known that the Venetians had joined the Emperor and the King, he was ordered to ask for 12,000. What answer he will have is not known.
De Bure has been busy at Grave, mustering horse, but writes that he will be here in three or four days, and that it will be necessary to have 2,000 pioneers, and take rather fewer footmen. Tate's charge is to raise only 500, to be ready by the 28th to muster two leagues from Namur; which done, he is to come immediately to Calais. The 4,000 Almains who waited for weather six weeks in Zealand sailed for Spain on the 21st. Since coming to Brussels, has learned that eight of the ships laden in Zealand by Wm. St. Pere are still there, and will not go till they have been paid for the past time. Has got an order from my Lady, to compel them to sail, if necessary, at the first opportunity, stating that Knight has promised they shall be paid what is due. This sending of letters to Zealand puts him to extraordinary charges. What he received for his diets was consumed by his journey into Almain. Brussels, [26 Aug. 1523.] (fn. 4)

On Tuesday last received Wolsey's letter for sending men to Jedburgh. Has delayed doing so, because the powder, shot, &c. had not arrived. As the moon has now waned four days before the assembly could be made, moonlight would be of little service. Has therefore delayed the action for twenty days, when it will be more hurtful to the Scots. The council sits at Edinburgh on Monday next. If the Scots do not then fall from the Duke and Surrey may send for the 2,000 Yorkshiremen, believes he could do much injury on the Marches, the moon being dark, and with much less cost to the King.
Received yesterday a letter from the queen of Scots by a spy, whom he has redespatched with letters devised by himself, Dacre and Magnus; of which he sends copies. He trusts that these letters, being shown to the Scotch council, will produce a good effect. Has written on the margin of the copies the causes that moved them to take these steps. Newcastle, 27 Aug.

Has received their letters dated Valladolid, and seen those addressed by them to the King, and the original treaty lately passed there with the Emperor's commissioners for the enterprise this summer against France. Had advertised them already of the arrival of Beawrayn, the instructions of Russell, and the King's willingness to contribute 100,000 crowns towards the entertainment of Bourbon. The King's army has set out, the largest which has passed out of this realm for a hundred years. He has appointed as his lieutenant-general the Duke of Suffolk, and in his company the lords Mountjoy, Mountague, Ferrers, Sandes, &c. By great labour the Duke was transported to Calais on the 24th with all his army, and is only waiting for the footmen from lady Margaret and the carriages. He trusts that the Emperor has already advanced upon Guienne, and will press the war vigorously now that the French are in danger in Italy. Sir Richard Jerningham is to follow the army.
The French king has made great preparations to send Albany into Scotland. He will be opposed by Surrey, and his passage intercepted by Poyntz in the West, and Christopher Coo in the North. Sir Henry Sherborne was lately slain in a successful sea fight with a French ship. Fitzwilliam also keeps the sea with 36 great ships, and has given chase to 12 ships of France, sent to convey the archbishop of Glasgow and others from Albany into Scotland. _ of this month Fitzwilliam landed at Treaport with Sir Francis Brian and others, and drove the French to flight, burnt the faubourgs of the town, and part of the shipping, with the loss of only 12 men. Albany has not been able to keep his promise of returning into Scotland; and the Scotch have accordingly determined that if he do not arrive by the last of the month, "as I trust he shall not," they will forsake France, and make peace with England.
Should the Duke arrive, all Teviotdale and the March have been so destroyed, "that there is left neither house, fortress, village, tree, cattle, corn, or other succor for man, insomuch as some of the people which fled from the same, and afterward returned, finding no sustentation, were compelled to come into England begging bread, which oftentimes when they eat, they die incontinently for the hunger passed, and with no imprisonment, cutting of their ears, burning them in the face, or otherwise, can be kept away. Such is the punishment of Almighty God to those that be the disturbers of good peace, rest and quiet in Christendom." Hampton Court, 30 Aug. Signed.

On receiving his letter, went to Holstrate, and showed how extremely the King was dealt with. He said he was as well treated as the Emperor, and that not only were all the limoners taken within one day's journey, but they had been sent for out of the land of Cleves, and the horse cannot be brought away without charge, as they are taken from their own business. There may be great deceit in this, which it will not be possible to show immediately. No money need be disbursed beforehand for those of Bulduke, but Holstrate says they will expect their pay to commence as soon as they leave their houses, and that we should not expect to have them as cheap as the Emperor. Can only speak with my Lady at afternoons. Brussels, Monday, 31 Aug.

Empowering the sieur de Praet to consent to the addition of _ soldiers at the expense of the Emperor, for whatever term is thought reasonable, if the King think fit to invade France; on condition that the King shall supply the Emperor's general with artillery and ammunitions to enclose their camp (pour clorre son camp), and that my Lady shall not be bound to supply chariots or anything else, although she is willing to do so at the King's expense. As corn is dear, she thinks that the King should send over a good quantity. It would be advisable for the English to have a number of aliens in their company, as the horsemen furnished by Madame will not act with those who do not speak their language; also that 3,000 or 4,000 English should remain when the army withdraws into winter quarters, to avert the misfortunes that happened in the past year. If the King went over in person, it would be as good as an army of 20,000 men. My Lady cannot offer more assistance, having to support 10,000 foot on the side of Gueldres and 1,000 horse: 1st. Because Gueldres is a frontier very open to attack. 2ndly. The inhabitants are not used to arms, and care more for commerce and fishery than for anything else. 3rdly. Because Messieur Charles of Gueldres is eager to lay waste Holland, and to obtain possession of Friesland, which is now in the Emperor's possession, all but the town of Gruyninghe. 4thly. Because, if he is not resisted, he can easily lay waste both Holland and Brabant, and obtain from them a contribution of 200 or 300 florins, which would enable him to continue the war.

The Scots came and cut down the corn sown by Car, constable of Wark, and the inhabitants of Careham in Careham field, pretending it was "general ground." (6.) The castle of Harbottle is in sore decay in timber, lead, and walls. (7.) Pardon to be passed for all accounts of the sheriffs in Northumberland, and substantial men to be put in their places. (8.)

(1.) They are to be at Hamburgh on the feast [of All] Saints. Hopes that the legate or [ambassador] of the Pope, the ambassadors of the king of England, "et præfati fratris nostri Ar[chiducis]," and of the aforesaid Princes electors, the duke of Holstein, and deputies of the imperial city of Lubeck, and of the rebellious subjects (qui a p[rincipe suo] defeccrunt), will then be there. They shall declare before all these assembled the Emperor's astonishment at the conduct of those who have invaded Denmark, and deprived the King of his kingdom, and the Queen of her dower. Whatever the King had done, "debebant imprimis ad N[os suum sum]mum dominum recurrere," as they are all the Emperor's subjects, either immediate, like the duke of Holstein, or mediate ... The Emperor, England and the archduke Ferdinand have therefore a just right to restore the said King by force of arms, but try first to effect an amicable arrangement. They are to be reminded that the Emperor will expend all his treasure in restoring the King, and exhorted to make complete restitution to him, and then the Emperor will see that he shall not oppress in future with any new exaction the Lubeckers or any other of his subjects, and shall live as a good neighbour with them and the duke of Holstein. Will obtain confirmation of the concord between them by the Pope, on pain of excommunication. If the Duke and Lubeckers refuse, the ambassadors must try to create division among them in the following manner:—
(1.) "Ut cum Lubice[nses] ... et illis ostendant, si in hac sua pertinacia perstiter[int, et regem Daciæ] regno suo ejectum tenere conati fuerint, quod tan[tæ periculum] rei in se solos recidet, nam nos nulla ratione prætermi[ssuros quin] omnes opes viresque omnium regnorum nostrorum ad restitutionem [ejus con]feramus," and will declare them under ban, and so all their goods "universis prout ... [a]mittentur;" their trade also with England and elsewhere will be destroyed. If this be successful, they are to try to effect union between the Lubeckers and the King, the former binding themselves to aid in restoring him, or at least to remain neutral. They are then to treat with the said King's subjects, and to show them that they cannot [resist] the power of so many princes;—that they will be declared under ban, anathematised, and their ecclesiastics deprived, if they persist, but pardoned if they give in. If they succeed, they are lastly to treat with the Duke himself. If they cannot get either the Danes or the Lubeckers to abandon the duke of Holstein, they are to think of other means. If they find that force will be necessary to restore the King, they must get the Legate to mediate. If this mediation fail, they must at once threaten all the rebels with the Imperial ban, and the anathema of the Pope, if they do not restore the King within a fortnight. They are meanwhile to ascertain the amount of the force requisite, the expense to be borne by each prince, &c., but are not to promise assistance without consulting the lady Margaret.
