498. [TUNSTAL] (fn. 1) to WOLSEY.
[At his] last being at Antwerp two men [of the] said town came to him, an told him h[ow] Nicholas Tyrry, as one of the King's purveyors, had taken of them certain [stuff] to the King's use when his grace was last [at] Guysnes, which they had only delivered because he came in the King's name. Told them he was sure the King had ordered all his purveyors to pay for what they took. Desired them to make written memorials of their demands, that he might advertise the King; on which they promised to send Tunstal copies of "the bills of his own hand," given for assurance of their payment. Heard no mo[re of] them until he came here, when one of them sent [him] the copy of his bill enclosed. They told him Tyrry had done the same thing at Antwerp. Will send the other memorial, if it come.
The Electors still refuse to give place to any ambassadors, and even to the three cardinals here, as they did at the Emperor's coming to Acon. Has, therefore, to preserve the King's honor, abstained from solemn acts. The Pope's ambassador has done the same. Thinks, from what he hears from Chievres and the Chancellor, they are not likely to be better treated at this time, nor at the diet, "for the Electors will not be ordered nor advised by them touching their h ... ceremonies of the empire. A ... heard that in times past the ... hath given place to orators of ... which now they do not." Thinks Chievres and [the] Chan- cellor "have not or dare not [tell] them of it." Has sent the news in the King's letter. Begs to know if he shall remain longer. Only matters of the empire will be treated in the diet. As to taking the crown imperial, thinks it is far from their minds, seeing that Spain is in disorder, whence money must come to maintain the enterprise. Here is great expense to the Emperor, and little revenues. [Cologne], 6 Nov.

It is several months since he was compelled by his calamities to apply to Wolsey. His chief loss was sustained in the time of Henry VII., and Wolsey promised to assist him. Supposes, from press of business, Wolsey has forgotten him. Has paid his creditors 5,000l. as part of his debts, and is so much pressed by Heron for 290l. he owes the King that he cannot leave his house, and is not safe even there. Asks again for assistance, hoping the services of his uncle the bishop of Worcester, and his whole family, will be remembered in his favor. London, 8 Nov. 1519.

Intended to have visited him this morning, but has been attacked in the night by a fever; "and joined with another troublesome passion, necessity compelleth me to signify unto your grace, by writing," the King's mind. The King wishes that at any time Wolsey shall certify him of any business to be expedited and send for Pace, Pace shall attend; at other times he is to remain in the court; "which his highness' commandment I shall be at all seasons ready to obey according to my duty, and as it appertaineth to mine office, and to do unto your grace also the most diligent service I can."

Wrote his last on the 31st Oct. Yesterday se'night the King and Queen came hither from Amboise. On Wednesday Mountpesat arrived from England, praising his entertainment there. My Lady told him that Mountpesat had informed her "how the King my master had put off his beard, and axed me if I knew not of it. I said that Mountpesat had been with me at my lodging, and towlde me likewise; and further said that, as I supposed, it hath been by the Queen's desire; for I told my Lady that I have here afore time known when the King's grace hath worn long his beard, that the Queen hath daily made him great instance, and desired him to put it off for her sake." Thinks that she had taken some offence at him because he had shown a letter from Wolsey of the 28th of July, in which the King promised to wear his beard till the meeting. She also "axed" him "if [the] Queen's grace was nat awnte to the king of Spain." Boleyn answered he was her sister's son, but that the king of England had greater affection for her son than any King living. She was well appeased, and said, "Th[eir love] is nat in the berdes, but in the harts."
Next day the King asked him if he had heard any news from England. On his replying in the negative, Francis "laid his hand on his breast, and said, By the fay[th] of a gentleman, that, but for the very trust he had of the said meetin[g and] entrevieu, he would have been at this day at Myllan."
There is a talk of the duke of Albany going to Scotland; but my Lady assured Boleyn he should not, though he was much desired there. He is now in ... with his wife, but at the court no one is so familiar with the King. The Pope's legate, who had received the bishopric of Coutances and great presents, has returned to Rome. If the Pope die it is thought Francis will help the legate to the papacy. An ambassador is expected from Denmark for new aid for the adventurers th[at went] thither this last summer. Many of them are in prison. The king of Denmark detains their captain, brother of the seneschal of Normandy. The bastard of Savoy has been made Grand Master. He perceives by Mountpesatt, that French gentlemen are much better treated in England than Englishmen in France. Blois, 16 Nov. Signature burnt off.

Had written to him very plainly a short time since, knowing that he is one not likely to take offence. Begs Wolsey, who has offered him the management of his whole household, not to desire him to undertake any task incompatible with his studies. He has but little experience. Had always determined to devote himself to letters. Begs he will excuse him for this freedom. Is much devoted to Wolsey, but is satisfied with his own condition, and wishes no such exaltation as all others would covet. A court life is disagreeable to him. Will never be forgetful of his goodness. Bruges, 17 Nov.

Gives an account of his journey to his own country. On the 1st Sept. before he left Rome, had written to Wolsey of all occurrences to clear his mind of all business. The heat was excessive. When he reached Lucca was attacked by the gout, afterwards by the fever; so all his pleasure in visiting his country was turned into sorrow. Before the time prefixed for his return, took his journey to ... Arrived safe there on the 27th; visited the Pope. On account of the unusual sickliness of the season, the Pope had given up his ordinary retreat till the time when he usually returns to Rome. Campeggio had arrived at Bologna. Nothing has as yet been concluded with regard to the investiture of Naples, as the Spaniards quibble about some punctilios. The rent of 7,000 ducats to the Pope for the said kingdom is agreed upon, and the Emperor consents. The French king has dismissed a great part of his infantry, but has raised a small fleet in Italy. This has made the Emperor divert his forces from Africa to Italy. They will winter in Sicily. The Emperor is inflexible against the restitution of Navarre. Begs money. The Pope will leave Rome for 20 days. Rome, 17 Nov. 1519. Signature burnt off.

On Friday the 18th, at 4 p. m., Mons. de Berghes' son arrived here on his way to England. His father has asked him to write to Wolsey in his favor. All the people in these parts are much pleased at the pardon sent to three poor men in this town for their lives and goods. "A poor miserable man," Harry Ledar, is still in prison, not knowing what determination he shall come to. His offences are not so grievous as they were alleged. "Howbeit, I will not say but that he hath offended, and needs he must offend, exercising the room that he did, for otherwise he should attain to no knowledge but that he must sometimes both do and say things sounding to offence." Asks Wolsey to obtain the King's pardon for his life, goods, and lands. Does not ask this from affection to his person, but from mere pity, and he is the first man for whom he has ever made suit.

His friend Thomas has returned safe, laden with silken raiment and gold, worthy of Wolsey's dignity. He has also brought letters more acceptable than gold or even jewels, which state that the pains taken by the writer in educating the boy have pleased the Cardinal, though far from satisfying himself. Does all he can to deserve the praise, if not of a pru- dent servant, at least of a faithful one, in the matter entrusted to him. Hopes Wolsey will in time reap the fruits of his (Birchinsha's) labor, when Thomas has attained an age more fit for solid education. Concerning his speaking less Latin than Wolsey desired, it is neither the boy's fault nor his own, but rather that of his plan of study, which, like other things, has a commencement, through which those must pass who wish to succeed. Much care shall be taken that he shall have the Latin language at his command. Louvain, 29 Nov.
