Sends Hesdin with letters from the King her nephew, received yesterday by post. Everything is ready for his departure, and he only awaits a favorable wind, and cannot fail to arrive shortly. Has ordered Hesdin to present his letters in conjunction with the bishop of Helna. The principal article of their charge is to ask Henry to defer his departure until the king of Castile's arrival, who has great desire to see him. Hopes Henry will consider the inestimable advantages which would result from an interview. Ghent, 16 May.

He jested on Erasmus in the same work, which was written ex tempore. Lee is rousing the Dominicans. Pace has lately succeeded to the preferment of Colet, the dean of St. Paul's. Louvain, 17 kal.

They have marked out the ground for the camp as chosen by Chatillon according to the platt designed by Wolsey. They find, however, that the tilt will be 208 feet from the Queen's scaffold, and 88 feet from the further side of the field, too far for them to have a good view. They propose, therefore, to remove it to the middle of the field, so all the partitions and rails will have a better sight. They disapprove of the ditch marked by Wolsey within the camp along the scaffold, as dangerous and inconvenient, and propose a rail eight feet from the scaffold instead. Has refused to consent to remove the tilt as Chatillon had proposed, alleging the insecurity of the ground, or write to the Cardinal upon the subject. Waits for his answer. Calais, 19 May.

v. Robert Sherburn, bishop of Chichester, to Wm. Nysell.
Sir John Underhill has obtained a privy seal against the Bishop for the repayment of 100 mks. which he alleges to have borrowed for him of Owen Meredith, who was the bishop's receiver in the vacation of London by translation of my lord of Canterbury. At the determination of his account he owed Sherburn 250l., for 100 mks. of which he was answered by Underhill. If Nysell has received these 100 mks. it is plainly wrong. Meredith, without authority, gave the 250l. to lord Berners while Sherburn was in Rome, and Berners stopped his receipts. Sir John Collet, then reeve of Stepney, owes 100 mks., and the residue is in other hands. Wishes him to look up Meredith's accounts. It is not borrowed money, as has been alleged. Never needed to borrow, thank God! Selseye, 11 Feb. Signed.

Chron. of

Have caused Robt. Fowler to make a declaration of the money spent on the castle at Guisnes and the cheker at Calais, from 12 March to 6 May, which was the last day on which any money was paid for wages, except Heron's payments for the garnishing of roofs and presting of artificers. The bearer will give him Fowler's account. The emptions and provisions cannot be given in detail yet, as Lelegrave, who received 2,430l., is still in Flanders. Henry Comptroller, Urmeston, Sadler and Browne, with many others, are still in England, and have not declared. The expense has been great, owing to the distance the stuff had to be carried, and the shortness of the time; but, when finished, Wolsey will think the money well bestowed. The work has been done according to a "platt" devised for the said buildings, and which Wolsey said the King wished to have carried out; and now the King complains they have made more buildings than are mentioned in the "platte," for his houses of office, stables for his coursers and the Queen's palfreys, the armoury and the camp, which will amount to a great charge; and the time is so short, the buildings so great, and the stuff so far off, that they are in doubt how they shall finish before the King's coming. Neither Clement Urmeston, John Rastall, nor Browne, the King's painter, who has to gild the roofs, have come to Calais, and the stuff for the roofs is not sent. Asks Wolsey to send them over. The French king's commissioners work better than they did at the beginning. They seemed doubtful of their master's coming. It is said that artillery is being secretly conveyed to Arde; and they can the more believe it, as Mons. Shatilyon told them he should send for artillery shortly after their last meeting. Advise the King to send the ordnance lying on the Tower wharf and other places. Guysnes, 21 May. Signed.

At this hour, 5 o'clock in the afternoon of Wednesday 23 May, Peter Grislyng, of this town, whom I sent by your command to discover the Emperor's navy, is come back with the ship that conveyed John Radcliff with letters to your grace from the Emperor. He says the Emperor is past Plymouth, accompanied with the queen of Arragon and only 60 ships, and by this hour is between Sterte and Portland. The owner and master of the ship that carried Radcliff says he is coming after in a "spynes" with letters from the Emperor to your grace. The Emperor came out of Groyne on Sunday last, and was the first that went to sea. Written the above day and hour in the 12th year of your reign.

He is to surrender his patent to the Queen on condition that the Earl can procure a new grant to himself; after which the Earl agrees to pay him 200 marks, one half at the time of the surrender, and the rest at the feast of All Saints 1523, "in the Cathedral Church of Paules, before the rood of the north door of the same church, between the hours of 9 and 11 of the clock before noon in the same day."

Wrote his last yesterday. This day the King, after dinner, assembled all the great personages of the realm in his bedchamber, when Wingfield was present. The King informed the audience that he had been advertised of Henry's departure from his manor at Greenwich, and his voyage towards Dover, and he trusted the meeting would take place shortly. He intended to entertain Henry as "the prince of the world whom he esteemed, loved and trusted most." He urged his nobles to receive the English in a friendly manner, and avoid bringing any evil advised persons to the meeting. In the end he commanded the Chancellor to draw up a proclamation.

[The Cardinal] had told him that his master had heard the King of France was equipping 12 or 14 vessels, which he did not believe until he had sent persons to make enquiry; from whom he had learned the names of the ships, and that they were to sail in 15 days. Encloses a roll of them. The Cardinal requested La Batie to obtain satisfactory assurance from his court, and whilst the king of England was over there, no vessels should be equipped fro war, otherwise he could not advise his master to cross the sea. He wishes to have the security to this effect under Francis' great seal. If he have it on Sunday evening he will cross on Monday; if on Monday, on Tuesday. Canterbury, 25 May. Signed.

The Emperor is expected today. The King will set out to meet him early in the morning, perhaps tonight.

Has often written about the hospital, but received no answer. Hopes Wolsey will give Borobrigh an audience. Since Bussett's departure, a young man named Ellis Bodley has had the administration of the house. "I cannot sye but he has done full diligently;" still his accounts and those of the hospital should be looked into. Borobrigh is bringing Wolsey two bonnets of the same make "as the thoders were of;" which, he reported to Worcester, "were most just and consonant to your noble purpose." Rome, 26 May 1520. Signed.

Has received his letter dated Canterbury, 26th instant, and informed the Admiral of its contents, showing him the memorial of the intelligence which Wolsey had received from certain ports, and which several of the council thought very strange, not understanding what it meant; and that Wolsey, "to avoid all such suspicion and occasion of grudge that your grace had, as well upon your honor as danger of your life," assured the council, so that they are now pacified. To this the Admiral answered that it was plain Wolsey was a fast friend to his master, and he might well make that assurance, for none of the vessels were equipped for war, except the galleons, which are the duke of Albany's, and have been "a dekkynge" nearly two years; and as for the ship which is going to Denmark, it is only to bring strange beasts from that country. The king of Denmark lately gave Francis a pair of "arraynes," of which the male is dead, and the ship is being sent for another. Has seen the female in the park of Bose de Vincent. In conclusion, he said he did not believe that Henry could suppose that "his highness's said good brother, being of so entire affection, love and confidence to him," could imagine such an "unkind way" as this is supposed to be. Esteems this prince "to be of such virtue that he would (fn. 1) have any like thought, with purpose of execution of the same, for all the good earthly." Before Wingfield's coming, the Admiral had received letters from La Batye containing the purport of Wolsey's letters to Wingfield, and also a like memorial; and he told him that letters should be sent, after Wolsey's desire, as soon as the King had dined.
The King was at mass today at the Jacobins, where high mass was sung by the bishop of Amiens. At the King's offering, the chapel, with the hautbois and sacbuts, sang and played together, "which was as melodious a noise as ever was heard." At his return, he spoke to Wingfield of the news he had heard from his ambassadors of the King Catholic's descent at Sandwich, and said he was sure that nothing that he or his council would ask of Henry, prejudicial to France or contrary to any treaty, would take effect. He also hoped that the King Catholic's visit would not delay Henry's passage. Muttrell, 27 May, at 2 of the clock after dinner. Signed.

There is no Turkish news, except that the great fleet they are preparing is thought to be intended, not for use against Italy or Rhodes, but for defence. It is reported that the Spanish fleet at Sicily has attacked and nearly taken the island of Gerbe, between Sicily and Africa, a haunt of Moorish and Turkish pirates. If the island be taken, these pirates will not be able to sweep the seas as boldly as formerly.
Some months ago the works of Friar Martin arrived. Much of their contents is disapproved of by great theologians, by reason of the scandals to which they might give rise, and part is condemned as heretical.

Vit. B. IV. 87.
B. M.
The contradictory proceedings of his correspondent on the part of Wolsey, in regard to the Pope's conduct with the Emperor, have much confused his Holiness, especially as he can[not] learn Wolsey's meaning from any one else, and because both the Emperor and the French king pretend to have England on their side. Has been with the Pope several times on this matter, who wishes to know the truth, and has bid him write to his correspondent, and state that Wolsey should instruct him to this effect:—that he (Wolsey) desired to send a person of credit to the Pope, to inform him of his intentions. They may thus correspond without suspicion. He is likewise to add that Wolsey must put no confidence in the bishop of Worcester, and that matters cannot proceed if the Pope has not a faithful negociator. When he was at Florence, had often written of the secret intelligence between Wolsey and himself. [The Pope] has ordered him to execute the wish of Wolsey, and thank him for his good inclination towards his Holiness. Is to tell Wolsey that the Pope remits to him the arrangement of the intelligence. The writer states, that nothing gives him so much pleasure as Wolsey's confidence, and he would be delighted if he could have a personal interview with the Cardinal; but as this is not possible, his correspondent must supply his place as well as he can. The correspondence must not entirely be kept up by writing, but as far as can be vivâ voce. His correspondent can de the same in matters concerning the legateship and the faculties required by Wolsey. Does not possess, however, much knowledge of England (de ista regione), which he should not have thought would have required so much experience as France and other countries. The Pope is very anxious to oblige the King. Considering that the bishop of Worcester does not possess such qualities as are suitable to so high a promotion, the Pope has determined to [abstain] from conceding it; although he has hitherto dissembled his intentions, and perhaps may find it necessary to do so still. Wolsey is not, therefore, to be startled if he receive certain briefs in commendation of Worcester.
