Desmond and Ormond have been reconciled. Has discharged fifty of the horsemen that came with Sir John Bulmer, "which were no worse in appearance than they be in deed." Horse meat is scanty, and it is better to keep good horsemen in this country than such rascal as the others were. Begs that thanks may be sent to Ormond, as he is a wise man and hath a true English heart. Has licensed Sir John Bulmer to depart, on account of his sickness. Wants money. Surrey, the treasurer and all the captains in the King's retinue have not 20l. among all. Dublin, 3 Nov. Signed.

The French king came to Blaysse, 26 Oct. On "Halomes Evyn" a gentlewoman of his mother's died of the great sickness, and he removed the same night to Amboys, where he will remain till 1 Dec., and then go to Lyons and Milan. Francis is much pleased with the news brought from Henry by Mons. de Rochepott. He has also heard that the Great Turk is dead of the great sickness in the town where he slew his father. Although Henry hears the Spanish news from the ambassador of the king of the Romans, thinks it as well to send the news current here. The Admiral tells him that the mutiny in Spain is not yet appeased, and that the king of the Romans had sent pardons to the offenders, and wished to appoint two new governors, the constable of Castile and the admiral of Spain. The commonalty refused them, and said they would govern themselves till the King came thither. Amboise, 6 Nov.

1043. TUNSTAL to [WOLSEY].
The ... of last month the Emperor enter[ed Cologne, and was] solemnly received with a great number of h[orsemen and] footmen of this city armed, accompanied by the same ... which brought him to Acon, and in the same ... The duke of Saxony being laid up with gout an ... was not there. The day after the entry the E[mperor] and Electors held a council, and determined to keep a diet at Worms, to begin after Christmas on Tw[elfth]day next, for the establishing and reformation of the empire. Letters monitory have been already sent out to all the estates usually called to such a diet. The Emperor and his council wished to have it begin sooner; but the Electors, considering the distance of the uttermost parts of the empire, would not consent. Meanwhile th[e] Emperor will go "to the contrey bes[ide] ... as ferre as Hagenno, and peraventure ... sborough," there to settle the state of the adjoining [duchy] of Wertynberg ... by reason of his presence to deter the Duke who is in Switzerland ... from making any invasion into the duchy. The Duke lately got two cantons over to his side. They would have accompanied him on the enterprise, but for a threat of invasion from the remaining cantons if they did.
The Emperor cannot yet discover who are the "great friends" who have helped the Duke. It is believed the aid comes from France. Hears from the Chancellor that the Card. of Tortosa, left governor by the Emperor in Castile, whom the commons now rebelling in Spain had ordered at his peril not to pass Valladolid, had escaped [from that] city in disguise, [and sent word] "hither to the said Chancellor that ... the heads and chief stirrers of th ... to the rebellion aforesaid now manifest ... that the queen of Spain, mother to t[he Emperor], hath not such use of reason as they had [been told], so that by her they might have colored an[d] supported their said rebellion as they intend[ed], now begin to repent their said folly."
News has come from Rome and Switzerland that the Pope wants 6,000 Swiss to come to him shortly. A diet is held all this week in Switzerland. No one knows why the Pope wants them. His ambassador here has told the council that the Pope is reliably informed, that within a month the French king will cross the mountains into I[taly], and if he do not get the men before his [coming, he can]not have them after, "for the maintenance [of his] estate." The Emperor's council here do not know if it be for fear of the duke of Urbino, or of the faction of Peruse, of which he has lately put one to death, or of the French, or under colour of his own protection for the use of the French. The lord Chievres and the Chancellor do not fear the French will cross the mountains this winter, seeing the Emperor goes no further into Almayn. It will be a great charge to the Pope to maintain them all the winter. Their passage [through the] duchy of Milan will show [the intention of] the Pope, for if they go without [impeachment] through that duchy, some secret understanding be[tween the] Pope and the French [will be] suspected here. If they [meet with] impechement of their passage, it will be certain no such agreement exists. It is thought the Pope is much more fearful than need be. Is informed by card. Sion that the ambassador of Hungary here has plainly told the Emperor the kingdom will have an answer, the Princess and Don Ferdinand being now of full age; for great offers are made to them to prevent it, if they will join France, which they will not do unless compelled by a breach of covenant. No ambassador has yet come here from France. Chievres told him one would shortly come "which ... and that in tymes past he hath belonged [to the] duke of Burbone." The Emperor [depar]teth hence to Mayence within four [day]s. Begs to know if he shall stay or return. Cologne, 6 Nov. Signed.

Wrote last from Acon (Aix) ... On the "penultime" the Emperor made his entry with all the Electors and almost all the horsemen ...; was met half a league from the gates by 5,000 foot, conducted into the city by the burgomasters, &c. He alighted at the cathedral, "and from the high altar went to the chapel of the Three [Kings];" thence to his lodging. Next day he returned to the cathedral with all the Electors. High mass was sung by a suffragan bishop, and the oath taken on both sides to observe the peace tendered to the Emperor by the cardinal of Mayence. The ratifications were made at the hotel de ville on the 3rd. Last night the Emperor gave a great banquet, where the Bishop of the city danced. The Bishop is at variance with the inhabitants, who refuse his temporal jurisdiction. The King and the Electors staid here to settle the difference, but on Monday he will remove to Mayence. The 3,000 foot are discharged. The 200 spears, the lord Berges, the lord Lyne, Demery, all the nobles of Brabant, Flanders, Henego, &c., went back, some with the Archduchess from Acon, and some from hence. There remain with the King cardinal Croy, the bishop of Luke, the Marquis d'Arescotte, the lord Nasso, the Governor of Bresse, the lord Rous (Roeux) great master, the count Porcyn, the princes of Orange and Bisinyan, the lord Sevenbarg, the master of the Horse, the lord Wassenar, and the duke of Alba with all his sons, the cardinals of Salsburg and Sion, the marquis of Brandenburg that hath married the queen of Arragon, one from Bada, brother [of] Savoy, the captain Francis Sekyn, [the ambassadors] of Austria and Tyrol, &c.
Encloses the manner of the King's entry into Acon, and the form of his coronation. The Latin paper is a verbatim copy of one sent him by a chaplain of the archbishop of Cologne. The Germans, who remember the emperor Maximilian's advancement, marvel at the King's great triumph. Thinks Charles may become very powerful, the people being well trained in war; "and at all ty[mes] that an Emperor might putte to work the b ... he should rule them in and out. Howbe[it for the] present I see no way whatsoever, many lightly wol say, of a further progress in t[his ... bus]inese of Spany as for lacke of monney." [A diet] is to be held at Worms on the feast of the Epiphany. The elector of Saxony stands high in general esteem. If he were appointed to rule the empire in the King's absence it is thought all should be well. He will probably, however, decline the charge, having already refused to be Emperor, in which case duke George of Saxony would be the most popular governor. The matter is of moment, for the imperial towns threaten to join the Swiss rather than submit to the tyranuy of the lords.
The duke of Bari, divers exiles from Milan and Padua, the secretary of the Adornes, enemy to the Fregoses that kept Genoa for the French king, divers of the house of Colonna, and other Ghibellines, are here attempting to persuade the Emperor to invade Italy. The cardinal of Sion seconds their advice, and Chievres thinks it much better than returning into Spain, which he particularly dislikes. Transmits an extract of such news as the duke of Alva "and a gentleman of the count de Benevent here resident declared to me to have out of Spain, and beside that how the [Con]stable continually writeth to the King [for] his short going thither, dem[anding to know the] danger wherein the affairs standeth, and that [his m]agestye should not take much hope in some dissension that appeareth to be amongst the commons, saying it might be hereafter reckoned to his greater prejudice than it hath been heretofore. The vice-chancellor of Arragon, and other wise men that speaketh indifferently, saith the matter hangeth now upon two points. The one is, that if the commons join together fast again that they shall be and woll destroy all the lords; and if they do sever, that one with another must go together by the ears; in which case the lords will agree jointly, and the one occupy a town, and the other another, as was in the time that the queen Elizabeth and don Ferdinand came to the succession of the crown, giving some free and exemption to the people upon the King's costs, concluding finally he must go at the beginning of the summer at the furthest.
"The lord Chievres showed me six days past they had news from their ambassadors residents with the King's [grace] how he is in good hope of the conclusion by .. desired whereupon hand the besinesse of ... and this your grace may surely believe." The ambassador from France has not arrived. Has heard from Raphael de Medicis that Albany was arrested "in words;" is now at liberty, but not allowed to go to Scotland. The lord Dubigny (D'Aubingni) goes in his stead. The Duke of Lunenberg, father-in-law to the duke of Gelders, is here to speak for him. "Armostorf told me that the King privily woll come to see the King's highness before his going to Spain; in whom and your grace b ... he hath all his trust; and the sem[blable] I understand of the lord of Alba."

I. "Double de l'article de l'advertissement qui vient d'Espaigne."
The commons of Burgos are incensed at the constable of Castile, who has obtained possession of the castle by a bribe of 10,000 ducats and the office of councillor to the keeper. Don Francisco de Beaumont has taken the castle of Daupadras, and a town belonging to the count Talbaticos, who has married a daughter of Saluce. Don Juan de Padilla has started for Valladolid to attack Beaumont, who has abandoned the castle and the town. Padilla has taken Marmanton in half a day. The whole country has submitted. Has retaken Daupadras, and placed it in the hands of the count de Salpatierra. The bishop of Samora has reduced the greatest part of Pallencia; has formed a union with Padilla and John de Burgos. The count de Salbatierra has arrived, and is expecting the coming of Garzia Darze, who brings with him 2,000 men; 3,000 have been raised at Segovia, Salamanca and Medina del Campo, which ought to be within three days at Valladolid. An ambassador from the Pope, and another from the king of Portugal, have attempted to satisfy the commons. They say the King Catholic cannot keep the towns, and they wish Padilla had them.
II. "Double de l'article qui faict mention de nostre Saint Pere" (Francis I. to his ambassadors in England).
Is to inform the King and the Cardinal of the news from Rome; sc., that a number of discontented Spaniards are marching, with hostile intentions, towards the states of the Church. The Pope has sent to the viceroy of Naples to protest against it, and has offered a good sum of money to have them disembarked in Spain; he can only obtain mere promises from Don John Manuel, the Spanish ambassador. Francis has consented to lend him 500 men, and has ordered Lautrec, his lieutenant in Italy, to send his brother Lescun with them.

Flamigny has returned to him the letters of the king of Scotland, and executed his commission, setting forth that Scotland was lacerated with civil war. Francis urges them to compose their quarrels, and remember their allegiance. Will send ambassadors shortly, as Flamigny will explain to them, "qui apud nos ducem Albaniæ consanguineum nostrum minime comperit." He had been called to Rome by the Pope, and had already left when Francis was at Angoulême, even on the verge of winter, and will soon return, when Francis will consult with him as to pacifying these disputes. When they are agreed, thinks the lords should send ambassadors to England, as he and his mother will do, to promote peace between the two kingdoms.

1048. [WOLSEY] to DACRE.
Had advertised him of the setting forth of the French ambassadors for Scotland, and that he should meet them at Morpeth; promising to send further information by Clarencieux. Since then, France has desired a prorogation of the truce about to expire on St. Andrew's Day. The King has consented to prorogue the truce till that day twelvemonth, on certain conditions, which Clarencieux will show Dacre, and require his advice. As Dacre has great influence with the Scotch lords, Wolsey hopes he will induce them to sue for peace, and "better to intreat the King's sister," and secure the payment of her revenues, and redress for such injuries as had been done to her by her husband and others. Means to do all that he can to bring the King's purpose to effect. The French ambassadors now sent will advise the same, and leave the Scotch to their fate if they obstinately refuse compliance. He has, at the King's desire, written a comfortable letter to the queen of Scots, certifying her of the truce, and the provisions made for her comfort; requiring her also to communicate with Dacre from time to time.

[At] the beginning of last summer Master [Tuke] brought him certain writings a ... made by learned men, doctors of law, up[on a certain] wrong done to Tuke by ... of Genoa, (of which hitherto he can have no [redress], though he has long sued for it,) that [Tunstal might] have informed Wolsey at the meeting of Henry and [the] French king, and Wolsey spoken [with] the French king for a commandment of minist[ration] of justice to be given to the city of Genoa. Wolsey, however, was so occupied at that time in public matters that both Tuke and Tunstal thought it would not be convenient to trouble him with private business. Tuke has now desired Tunstal to write his opinion on the case to Wolsey. The main facts are, that a ship laden with wools and cloths belonging to Tuke, sailing into Levant, was taken by the Turks, and remained some days in their hands upon the high seas, when the army of Genoa, meeting o[n the] sea with the said Turks, captured th[em] with all their ships and booty, and [amongst other thing]s the goods of Tuke, which (though they have confessed them to be Tuke's) they will not restore, nor recompense him for them. Sir Herman Ryng has desired Tunstal to write to Wolsey, and ask his help in getting payment for a large num[ber] of spear staves [which] the King used at his meeting with [the French] king, and in the matter of an annuity he has of the King.

Selim, the dread of the whole world, has been cut off by pestilence, and Solyman his son has succeeded. The Janissaries have plundered all Jews, Christians, and others living at Constantinople; and they say that Selim, when his life was given over, made a sacrifice of his physicians. One of the French king's chamberlains, named [M]arciottus, has been at Rome to propose a new meeting between the Pope and his master, who wishes the count de Carpi to be present at the interview; he is ill at Naples.

He has ordered De Vandon to allow the said merchants to have as much wheat as the places he appoints will bear. The French king intends to go to Milan, as I wrote before. Amboys, 13 Nov.

Has received his letters. As to the reception of the French ambassador, the lords were not pleased with his message because it was against the Duke. They have sent an answer, but hold the Frenchman still, as this bearer can show. As to the band made by Angus to Dacre for her, and "the power ye sent me, the persons ye committed the power to will not accept it." Requests a new power by some special person from Dacre himself, who will accept it with her men-of-law, Master Robert Gabreth and Patrik Synklar, "for here is no lords that will do for me," if her cause were ever so just. As she cannot get answered of her living, and has nothing to spend, will be obliged to leave Scotland and put away her jewels, which would not be to the honor of the King her brother. Has often complained to Dacre, but can get no remedy. Has put it off as long as possible, but can endure no further. If Dacre do not provide speedy remedy she will have to apply to those who were ever her foes, and do their bidding. Has had many fair promises from the lords, only to put off the time. Since her last coming to Scotland, has not had of her living 2,000l. Scots. Refers to Arran whether she be ill-treated or no.

Has received his letter, and thinks his arrival in Scotland will do much good. "I cannot so well answer your letter as I should do, because I am no good Frenchman." The King is favorable to him and Mons Aubigny. Has taken a new abstinence until the 1st January, inclusive.

Expected to have seen him on Thursday, but perceives that he has been obliged to meet the French ambassadors now landed in Dunbar. Thinks he has put too many names in the conduct to come up as ambassadors. Two bishops, two lords, two clerks or temporal men will be sufficient. Desires his recommendation to Mons. de Planis, the French ambassador, whose writing he has received, but cannot well understand, because it is in French. Harbottle, 30 Nov.

On the dorse are a draft of a letter and a memorandum relative to a dispute in Knarsburgh forest; also the following words: "Witnesseth that Thomas Darcy, knt., lord Darcy, hath delivered to Mr. Erington, master of the hospital of the Blessed Trinity at Whitkyrk, and free school there, lately founded and builded by the said Thomas lord Darcy, these books following, safely to be kept by the said master to the use of the said hospital and school."

Has received his letters of the 22d and 30th, stating that the Imperial ambassador had made some complaint of the levy of 6,000 Swiss, and that the Emperor had commanded the viceroy of Naples and others to defend the Pope; that Wolsey had made the Pope's excuses to the said ambassador. As the Emperor had allowed certain Sicilian troops to the number of 4,000, that should have crossed the sea into Spain, to congregate at Naples and the borders of the Church, to prevent any violence from them, he had written to the Swiss for 6,000 men, as specified by the terms of the treaty, and that openly, to avoid all misconstruction. His correspondent will see by his last letters that he was compelled to advise with the Pope [on the matter there stated], and not write and complain of it again, but urge Wolsey to send a well informed agent, as he wrote to him in his last. Is surprised at what he wrote about the legateship, desiring a prorogation to be sent, &c. Will wait till the aforesaid agent comes. Meanwhile they send a bull super hoc. The Pope would rather not have received any further letters respecting the promotion of Worcester, as his correspondent had promised, on the part of Wolsey, no more should be sent. Is content, however, if he is to follow his own mind, and begs that Wolsey will desist henceforth. Is constantly pestered by Worcester. If Worcester cannot take the hint, his Holiness will have to tell him openly, since he does not wish to incur this infamy. [Some answer to the question of Worcester's employment with the Pope, destroyed by the fire.] The Pope daily pays considerable attention to finding some remedy for Lutheranism, as Wolsey has advised him. As the influence of Henry and Wolsey is very great with all princes, wishes they would write to the Emperor and other Christian Princes to prevent its further diffusion. Thinks their letters will have great effect.
