Thinks that the King his master will be pleased if Henry would write a letter to him in his own hand, of five or six lines, which Hesdin will take to Madame. Advice should be given to the secretary, who goes to the King his master to dissuade him from agreeing to any new diet with the king of France, as there is no need of it. The king of France presses it eagerly. The advice will be exactly in accordance with Charles's wishes. Will be glad if he can despatch the business by Wednesday. In taking leave of the King yesterday, did not like to speak of the affair of Mortaigne. Would be glad to promote the King's wishes on all occasions, if he had the power. If Wolsey is willing to see him on Wednesday, may let him know by one of his servants; otherwise he will keep the arrangement for Thursday. London, 3 Oct. 1519. Signed.

Since her last she received a letter from my lord governor, by his servant, stating that he could not come to Scotland. Dacre knows the cause. He is willing that she have the government of Scotland, and the keeping of her son, as before, and bid her ask the mind of the Lords of Scotland; which she did, and has found them quite against her, and with the earl of Arran. They say she may have right of the Duke, but they will not consent to her; so that Dacre will perceive the lords are not her friends, as he supposed. Has done her best to reconcile the West-land lords and my lord of Angus, "as this fathdar Jedward vol informe you." The lords are utterly bent on Angus's destruction. Trusts he will have more help from England, now she is with him, than he had before, when Dacre bore him great favor. Desires to know his mind by the bearer, "my 1. of Jedvard," to whom she begs him to show favor. He has few friends here. Trusts they keep a good part to her, "and the better and ye will bid them."

Wrote his last on the 24th Sept. Whilst the King, the Queen and my Lady were in a forest two leagues hence, the bishop of Limoges, brother to young Momerancy that is in England, died here of the common sickness. They have consequently removed to Amboise. Proclamation is made that no townsman enter the castle where the King's children are. The admiral arrived yesterday from Orleans. He was said to be "sore sick, nat like to recover; but I saw him leepe up and downe of his mewle as well as he was wont to doo." The sickness has prevented the sending of the presents into England. It is reported that the armament prepared by the king of Castile has been injured at sea. Blois, 15 Oct.

Had intended to send his remarks on Fisher's work against Faber. Hochstrate has left Cologne from fear of the plague, and is at Louvain. Is sorry to have to complain of Lee. As Frobenius threatens a new edition of the New Testament, will be glad of Fisher's corrections. Has not for 30 years lamented any one's death so much as Colet's. Has twice received letters from Frederick Duke of Saxony, Luther's patron. The Duke was offered the empire, and refused it, the day before Charles's election, who, but for the Duke, would never have obtained it. He was offered 30,000 florins, but would not accept them. When he was urged to allow 10,000 to be distributed among his retinue, he replied, "They may take them if they please; but if any one of them touches so much as a crown, he does not remain in my service tomorrow." Next day he mounted his horse, and departed. The duke of Wurtemberg, who was lately defeated, has renewed the war. The return of Charles from Spain is expected.

The lord of Berges is so charmed with the virtue and fame of Henry VIII., his Queen and his court, that he is very anxious to have his youngest son Anthony brought up in England. The ill fortune of Erasmus induced him to turn a deaf ear to the invitations of Wolsey and Lord Mountjoy to push his fortunes in the English court.

The Lords Regents have appointed a council at Stirling on Saturday the 22nd, on the coming home of the earl of Murray, "a springeold of 20 years of age." As Dacre wrote last, David Home and his brother have slain the prior of Coldingham, son of the old archbishop of Glasgow and the old Earl Bothwell's sister.

Has received his letter from Westminster, 31 July, by the provincial friar Henry Chadworth, who thereafter proceeded to the queen of Scots at Stirling, and delivered to her the King's letters and credence, remonstrating with her on her separation from her husband, and her reported "suspicious living." The Queen repeated the substance of his message to the archbishop of Glasgow, chancellor of Scotland, and Arran, the former of whom strongly urged her not to be reconciled to her husband; but the friar, having continued with her seven or eight weeks, has now got her to consent to it. Perceiving this, the Chancellor, with the bishops of Galloway and Argyll, the earls of Arran and Lennox, the lords Fleming, Semple, and Maxwell, came to Stirling, and told her if she agreed with her husband they would leave her. She replied, she was resolved to go to him. The lords then departed to Lithgow, where she had another conference with them, to effect an agreement between them and her husband, without effect. On Monday the 15th (fn. 3) she came to Edinburgh. Angus met her by the way with 400 horse, and conveyed her within a quarter of a mile of Edinburgh Castle, where she visited the King. The archbishop of St. Andrew's, the bishops of Dunkeld, Aberdeen, and Murray, the earls of Huntley, Argyll, Ruthain (Ruthven ?), Morton, Glencairn, and Marshall, the lords Glamis, Hay, and Grey, (of the opposite party,) met her there "with great triumph, in shooting of guns, and great melody of instruments playing, and said she was welcome to the town." These lords intend to make a new chancellor on their side. Messages have been sent between Edinburgh and Linlithgow for a concord, without effect. Albany has sent Carrick herald with a letter of credence to the Queen, that as he cannot come to Scotland he wishes her to have the rule if the lords will consent, as appears by her letter to Dacre, enclosed.
