Has been requested by Thomas Hannibal, in the King's name, to make certain concessions appertaining to Wolsey's honor and interest; but as these are not usually granted without the consent of the Cardinals, begs to be excused, until he reaches Rome. Allows him, however, to receive the emoluments of the said (sic) monastery [of St. Alban's] from the day of its vacancy, as if it had been already granted to him in commendam by the Pope.

Thanks him for the news of the Emperor's determination to repair to England, and of the King's gests for meeting the Emperor at Canterbury and conducting him to Winchester. "My lord, I am very much bound to your good grace for the manifold tokens of great favours and kindness, which I find daily more and more increase in your grace towards me." Is sorry he cannot be at Canterbury with Wolsey, in consequence of a disease, of which he is not yet recovered; but trusts that, when he has done his duty to the King "at my poor house at Otford, I shall be able forthwith to journey to Canterbury speedily, there to receive the King's grace and the Emperor in my cathedral church."

Wrote on the 17th. The Emperor is advertised, by letters from the marquis of Mantua of the 9th, that the distress of the Frenchmen at Lodi was greater than they thought; six companies of men-at-arms had been slain or drowned in the river Ade, "insomuch that such overthrow largely exceeded their damage of the former conflict." The Emperor's army has crossed the river and taken Pischegytton. The French have gone towards Cremona, where were the lord Lescu, Bonnavalle, Jh. Tryulce and John De Medici, with the relicts of the French army. Lootrycke is said to have gone to Venice. The Imperial ambassadors have desired the Venetians not to admit or succor the French. They answered, they wished the French were at the devil, and that they would assist the Emperor. Bruges, 20 May. Signed.

Has scoured the sea from Dover to Weght, without seeing or hearing of any man-of-war. Has met with merchant vessels, French, Flemish and Scotch; and where the French lacked victual, has given them some. They say they have heard of no men-of-war, except the great ship of Scotland at Brest, with four other ships newly rigged, "set where the hold failed, ready to go to the sea when they shall be commanded." There is a ship in Normandy of 500 [tons], as one told him that came from Dieppe. Has sent a ketche, which he hired, to Newhaven, and a wise fellow in her, with money to buy wine and wheat, and mark what ships are there, and in what readiness. If he was asked his business, he was to say he was a victualler of Calais. Intends to keep between Dover and Calais, for fear if he went further the wind might shut him up, and he should not be there when the King's train passes. In Dover Road, 21 May.

Wrote to him yesterday. "This morning the Emperor sent for us, showing unto us that, God willing, he would be at Calais on Sunday next." As he is informed that calms are most to be doubted this season of the year, he is constrained to make large provision of victuals. The arrival, therefore, of his navy at Hampton may be retarded three or four days; nevertheless, that his enterprise may be put into execution at the time appointed by the King, he has ordered 3,000 Almains under Rokendorff to be at Hampton, with convenient ships for receiving 1,000 soldiers. He is informed that the navy of Spain is at Bylbao; and by the latter end of this month they will be in the west of England. He will order them to come to Hampton, and appoint some great personage to be their chief, who shall accompany my lord Admiral with Rokendorff, for whatever purpose shall be deemed expedient.

Received today letters from Dacre, dated 20th inst., stating what he had done in the East Marches and Berwick for the last ten days. He sees no likelihood of Albany's invading England, though the captain of Berwick wrote to Wolsey that by this time he would have besieged that town. On Sunday last the captain again wrote in great haste to Dacre that the Duke would be in England, but there has been no such entry. However, on the Monday night Philip Dacre, Sir Wm. Percy, lord Ocle and the four knights, with men from Berwick and elsewhere, to the number of 2,000, of whom he encloses the names, slew Lanse Carr, one of the worst borderers in Scotland, and forty persons with him, and brought his son and heir and a great prey in safety to England, losing but one man. Asks for letters of thanks for them, and when they "slack" they must have money. If Wolsey will send no letters of thanks, the Bishop must give them money. What he has will soon be wasted. Has already spent 2,200l. of the King's money, with all his care. This untrue news has been sent by the captain of Berwick only for money, for he has had none by the Bishop's orders, because he demanded, first, money for crews taken into Berwick before the Bishop's coming, about which he has written several times to Wolsey and received no answer; and, secondly, for the crew of fifty gunners besides his retinue, which, when the Bishop was in Berwick, neither he nor any one else could see. Has written several times to Richard Candishe to view and examine the said gunners, offering to pay them without delay on receipt of his certificate, but he cannot get it by any means. The four knights have received wages for three months, the last month commencing on the 15th of May. The soldiers receive 8d., and "the last," 6d. The wages of the whole, including petty captains and twenty-five for the posts, amount but to 500.
The King's ships in the Frith have lost their chief enterprise. They took a French ship laden with rye, and, though desired, would not make their port sale at Berwick, but three of them took the prize to Newcastle, while two went to Berwick Haven to receive the Scotch artillery sent for. Meantime three great French ships came to Scotland, to the great comfort of the Duke and his friends. Does not know what they brought with them. It is thought he would have left if they had not come. This month he has kept his chamber, and none came to him but the Chamberlain, the Chancellor and a few of the secret council. Thinks "it is time to look to them, albeit they have yet shrewd rest upon the Borders, and by yende of all our three marches." If the King would write to lord Clifford and others who have land in Cumberland, Westmorland and Northumberland, to lie upon their lands for defence, it would promote quiet and be a safeguard against sudden invasion. Some good captains should be sent down to the Middle and East Marches, for neither lord Dacre nor Sir Christopher are beloved. Dacre has good wit and good fortune, as Wolsey may see by the management of this last raid, "but for all that we would have him at Carlisle." Carlisle, 22 May. Signed.

There is laid against lord Mounteagle's executors, that he became outlaw two years before his death, which matter Mr. Husy will answer, and send word to Darcy concerning it and his suit to the King. Cannot get any of the fee of the duchy before Whitsunday. Has sent by Mr. Middleton, the bearer, 20l. of the old arrears of Kent, and will send the rest next term, but cannot obtain the Devonshire rent. Has paid Mr. Arthur 20l. for his Easter fee, and 20l. lent him by Darcy for his purchase. Will pay him all at Martinmas. Has paid Mr. Thomas 8s. for this Whitsunday, and hopes he will attend well on my lord of Canterbury. But little money will come from the Devonshire and Talworth wood sales as yet. As for his process in the Exchequer, the issues lost will not all be saved. 22 May.

Informed him on the 15th of the departure of the marquis of Pescara for Genoa, and of the capitulation made for Cremona with El Scut (Lescun). Prospero could not leave either on the 16th or 17th, after the marquis of Pescara, as agreed, because the lanzknechts would not move till they got their wages, and the cloth and silk owing to them, and declared that the agreement had not been kept with them that was made at Bicocca. They insisted on full payment, in advance, up to the 5th of June. ... fled to Milan to solicit the Duke and Geronimo Moro to send the cloth and silk required, and upwards of 9,000 d. (ducats) for the half pay that was to be in money, and for 15,850 ducats sent by don John Manuel. By promising them the cloth at Piciguiton, Prospero drew them thither, but they refused to go further, for a day and a half, until they had their whole pay. At length, on the 21st, Prospero left Piciguiton, with all his men, and came 22 miles to Beljoyoso. 300 lanzknechts obtained leave at Piciguiton to return home, which was readily granted, as they were the cause of the mutiny. That day word came from the marquis of Pescara and Geronimo Adorno that they would be on the 22nd before the walls of Genoa, and that in the meantime they would leave the artillery, in order to repair a road broken by the Fregosi. On the 22nd, Antoniotto Adorno left Beljoyoso, and crossed the Po, two miles thence on the way to Genoa, with 6,000 lanzknechts, at which time the Spaniards were on the other side of the Po. Prospero, with all his men, and a band of more than 2,600 lanzknechts, came to Pavia, seven miles from Beljoyoso, whither the Duke came from Milan, and took counsel with him, when it was agreed that they should go to Genoa, and bring the army and rearguard into the plain, at the foot of the mountain, sending the lanzknechts that came with Antoniotto Adorno by the other side of the Po, and that Antonio de Leyva should go with the vanguard of the gens d'armes, with the 2,600 lanzknechts that came to Pavia, and six sacres, to take Novara, where it is said there are not more than 500 adventures, who will not wait to be sought out. The castle, however, will not be so easily taken. When this territory is conquered, he will go to take Arona, on the Lago Maggiore. In order to capture these two places, it will be necessary to pass through the Grisons, and make a considerable detour. They are throwing a bridge over the Po, near Basignana, in order that if the succors come which the French expect, the imperial forces may all join together. The succors expected are the admiral of France, with 12,000 foot, 8,000 Swiss and 500 lances, but there is no certainty about it as yet. Perhaps all this spring the king of France has been making a great army. Hopes the Emperor, therefore, will see to it. On Sunday, the 18th, news came that the enemy had abandoned Aste, and gone to Genoa. The city [of Milan] still holds out for the duke of Milan, and one of his captains has put himself in the way that leads to Geona, with some horse, so that the enemy will have to withdraw. On the 19th the Duke had a letter from Vercelli, in the duchy of Savoy, stating that the Great Master, the Grand Escuyer, Peter of Navarre and 100 horse, had passed by Vercelli, and taken the road to France, to come back, as it was said, with the succors. Today, the 23d, Ant. de Leyva left for Novara. Prospero departed after him, to place himself twelve miles hence. The duke of Milan leaves tomorrow to join Prospero, and I go with him, as he requires me to write to your majesty and others. Today letters have come from Florence of the 21st, stating that the galleys of Naples and of the Pope had come by command of don John Manuel to Leghorn (Lyorna), and had orders to go to Genoa.

After all his trouble with these lanzknechts, occasioned by their brutalities, some arrangement has been made at last, but with great difficulty. 6,000 of them have been sent round about Genoa (la volta de Genoa), to act with the Spaniards and Italians, who have been sent forward with the artillery. Will go himself to help. Another band of lanzknechts and the vanguard of the gens d'armes are gone with Ant. de Leyva to Novara. Hopes all difficulties are over. Has not failed to write to don Juan. Begs the Emperor to send money, for everything is in the greatest peril if the troops be not paid. On the 20th, the galleys had joined at Leghorn, and if don Juan's commission be sent immediately, that they should take the road to Genoa, thinks everything is safe. Pavia, 23 May 1522.

Commends the bearer, a servant of the bishop of London, if he shall have anything to do in the Queen's court. Arrived at Saragoza on 2 May, and great honor was done him all through Spain. "As to our departing from hence to Rome, the Pope himself cannot tell. Daily he looketh for his navy that is to come from Sicilia and Naples. And as touching the preparament at Barsalona is no thing; and if it were, the Pope dare not come there, for they die of sickness and of hunger." The three cardinals have not yet come, "nor intendeth not to come." Begs to be remembered to Sir Thomas and lady Tyrel. Saragoza, 23 May.

This bearer is the bishop that the Pope sendeth at this time to the King, and to you as nuncio for a season. He is a man of good qualities, anxious to be faithful to the King and Wolsey to the best of his service, or the Pope would not have sent him to England. Has heard nothing of the bill for a thousand ducats, for which Wolsey spoke to Anthony Vivalde, and has been compelled to borrow 700 of my lord of London's factor. "This journey is the most costly journey that any man may imagine; no man may thynkyde but he that is in it. I am in as costly court and country as any in the world. On my faith, I spend as much in one day here as should serve me in London in a whole week. It is no small charge to follow a court or to be in a city where such a prince is." 1,000 ducats for an ambassador is little regarded here. 800 crowns in France or Flanders are better than 2,000 in Spain.

Has had nothing to write about since he left, except how the city is provided. It has been necessary to bring much artillery, which has been done with great difficulty. Tomorrow it will be arranged to assault, if necessary, as they do not expect that the enterprise will be carried without force. Doubts not in any case they will gain the territory, which might perhaps have been done by this time but for the lanzknechts. The band of them which was to come to the enterprise will not arrive till tomorrow, but one way or other the city is sure to be reduced. If the galleys which passed five days ago to Leghorn had come, the thing would have been much easier. They could not have been employed in better service. From the camp before Genoa, 25 May 1522.

1. Remembrances touching the meeting and reception of the Emperor at his entry into the King's pale on this side the water of Graveling, and conducting him to Calais, Dover, Canterbury and other places; also for the execution of the treaty concluded between him and the King at Bridges, and the defence of the realm against France, Scotland and other foreign powers.
As the Emperor has determined to visit Calais, and cross thence to England on his way to Spain, it is ordered that at his entry into the King's pale on this side the water of Gravelyng, the earl of Surrey, the bp. of Chichester (fn. 2) and lord Delaware, with the treasurer, marshal, lieutenant and all other officers of Calais, except the deputy and porter, shall salute him, the Bishop making an oration, and the officers delivering him the keys of the town and castle; and if offers be made unto him for deliverance of such prisoners as shall be thought convenient to be released, it should the more redound to the King's honor.
The council of Calais must provide wine, flour, beef, &c., for the Emperor's entertainment at his own expense.
The mayors of the town and staple are to meet the Emperor at his entering within the Park before Milk Gate, at which place the clergy are to be ranged on the right hand of the street, with crosses, copes, &c. "furnishing their number with all the parsons, curates, priests, copes, crosses and reliques as may be gotten within the Pale."
The mayors of the town and staple shall prepare an honorable present of wine, victuals, &c. for the Emperor.
The Marshal, with the Council, must prepare the lodgings.
The King must cause "passengers" to be prepared for the conveyance of the Emperor and his train to the hoyes.
At the Emperor's arrival at Dover, the Cardinal and the following noblemen shall meet him: My lord Marquis (substituted for the duke of Suffolk, whose name is struck out); earls of Devonshire and Wiltshire; bps. of Chester and Exeter (substituted for Ely, Carlisle, Chichester and Rochester); abbots of Westminster, Glastonbury (struck out), Bury, St. Austin's and Bermondsey; Master of the Rolls; lords Dacre of the South, Herbert, Rosse, Ferrers and Hastings; Sir Wm. Scott, Sir John Fogge, Sir John Wiltshire, Sir Roger Wentworthe, Sir Wm. Waldegrave, Sir John Norton, Sir John Grene, Geo. Guyleforde, Sir John Vere, Wm. Hawte, Sir John Marney, Sir Giles Capell, Sir Thos. Taye, Sir Robt. Drury, Sir Matthew Browne, Sir Godard Oxenbridge, Sir John Gainsford, and others of Kent, Sussex and "Sotherey."
The castle must be furnished for his lodging, and the comptroller of the Household and other officers shall superintend the preparations.
Dover must be provided with victuals, and carriages must be ready to convey the Emperor's stuff to Canterbury. Sir John Scott, Sir John Fogge, Geo. Guyldeforde and Wm. Hawte are to attend to this, with the aid of the mayor and other officers.
After the Emperor has paused at Dover for a convenient time, the Cardinal will conduct him to Canterbury, between which place and Dover, on the Downs, the King will meet him with the following persons:—Dukes of Norfolk and of Suffolk; bp. of Durham; earls of Arundel, Shrewsbury, Northumberland, Worcester, Kent, Oxford and Westmoreland; bps. of Ely and Lincoln; lords Matravers, Souche, St. John's, Mountjoye, Dawbenay, Burgevenny (struck out), Fitzwater, Morlaye, the Marquis's brothers, Montague, Stirton and Cobham; Sir Rice Ap Thomas, Sir Henry Marney, with the guard and the rest of the knights of Suffolk, Norfolk, Lincoln, Hertford, Huntingdon, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Somerset, Dorset, Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Hampshire, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire.
After this meeting the Emperor will proceed to Canterbury, before which city the mayor and burgesses will salute him "with a convenient proposition by some discreet and eloquent personage to be made."
The clergy are to stand on both sides of the streets as far as Christchurch, where he will be received by the archbp. of Canterbury and the bishops of Rochester, Bangor, "Hartford," Saint Asaph and Llandaff, with their suffragans, the King's chaplains and others.
The Emperor's and nobles' lodging is appointed at Christchurch, in the Archbishop's palace, and the King will lodge at St. Augustine's.
The next stage will be to Sittingbourne, and lodging for the King and Emperor must be prepared at gentlemen's houses near.
He will then proceed to Rochester, and thence to Gravesend. The Treasure and Comptroller will superintend the provision of lodgings.
The barges of the King and noblemen must be ready at Gravesend to take the King and Emperor to Greenwich. All ships in the Thames are to be laid between Greenwich and Gravesend, adorned with streamers and with ordnance ready to fire as the Emperor passes. The following persons are appointed to provide victuals: at Canterbury, the Mayor, Wodde, Colman, Boothe, Hailes; at Feversham, Ospring and Sittingbourne, Sir John Norton, John Cheney of Sittingbourne, Crowmer, Robt. Sandes; at Rochester, Gravesend and Dartford, Sir John Wiltshire, the mayor of Rochester, Moyle.
As the Emperor, after his arrival at Canterbury, will lodge where the King is, and accordingly himself and familiar servants will be at the King's cost, the officers of the household must have the charge of providing for them.
From Greenwich to London the Emperor will be conducted by the King and the other foresaid lords.
The ships between Greenwich and Blackwall are to be ordered by the Admiral. The order of the barges at Gravesend is committed to Sir Edm. Walsingham, Sir Robt. Johns and Kebye.

Has told the King of the arrangements made last night between Wolsey and the Emperor. The King is much pleased at the Emperor's abiding there, as the baggage belonging to himself and his nobles has not yet arrived. Henry will be with the Emperor tonight, bringing with him the lords Steward, Chamberlain and others. Wolsey is to cause other noblemen, both of his own and the King's train, to dislodge for such as the King shall bring with him. His coming is not to be known, that it may appear to be entirely "of his own mind and affection towards the Emperor." Canterbury, 9 o'clock. Signed.

On Thursday last Clarencieux arrived, and delivered him the King's credentials, by which he perceived that they were to conform themselves to such instructions as they should receive from Sir Richard Wingfield. These were brought by Clarencieux, and proffered to the French king, who refused to accept them. On this Cheyne took his leave, and Clarencieux made the King's declaration. Has promised that the French ambassador shall be exchanged for himself, and he will not be allowed to leave the realm until the former is at Calais. But for this he could have sent no notice of what he had done. Lyons, 28 May. Signed.

The King has been frequently required by the Emperor to declare himself enemy to Francis in accordance with the treaty of London, on account of the invasion of Navarre, and the attempts of Rob. de la Marche, but wished rather to bring the Emperor and him to concord, and for that reason sent the cardinal of York to Calais. Although Francis was proved to be the invader, by his letters to the count de Cariat (Carpi) and other things, the King wished the Cardinal to forbear the declaration, and to continue the diet, that some means might be found to pacify their variances; and after his return, he continued to apply to Francis' mother for the furtherance of peace, and it was promised that persons should be sent to bring matters to a conclusion. The affair, however, was always delayed; and meanwhile Albany has been sent to Scotland, in contempt of the King who is supreme lord [thereof], to the danger of the young King and the dishonor of his mother, whom Albany has endeavored to separate from her husband, "and damnably to contract matrimony with her." The payment of the King's money has been refused, and Ric. de la Pole, his rebellious subject, entertained, contrary to Francis' oath. Francis has also allowed his subjects to rob the King's lieges at sea, and refused redress; he retains strangers not being his subjects in wages; he has caused the garrison of Tournay to make excursions against Flanders, and has acted more like an enemy than a friend to England. The King has therefore instructed Clarencieux to intimate to Francis that he will take part with the Emperor against him.

R. O. 2. The message of the herald of England to the king of France.
On the 29th May, the French king gave audience to the English herald at Lyons. He said that his master bade the French king beware of him, as he was his mortal enemy, on account of his infraction of the treaty of Ardre,—(1.) by making war on the Emperor, and assisting Mons. de Sedan; (2.) by employing foreigners; (3.) by allowing Albany to go to Scotland; (4.) by invading Navarre; (5.) by discontinuing his pensions to the king of England, and causing the French to pillage his ships._The French king, without waiting to deliberate, replied as follows:—(1.) That he never assisted the sieur de Sedan, but offered to assist the Emperor against him, if he wished it. (2.) He was obliged to hire the Swiss, because the Emperor invaded Champagne, and took Moson under pretence of making war on Sedan; and before he engaged them, the king of England had an ambassador there, who gave them 50,000 angelots not to enter the service of France. (3.) The duke of Albany left without his knowledge, and he has tried without success to make him return. (4.) There was nothing about Navarre in the treaty of Ardre, but the king of England promised to put the said kingdom into his hands in three months, which he has not done. (5.) As to the pension, he has felt assured for two years that the King is his mortal enemy, and he will not pay him money to be used against himself. In proof of this assertion he offers to show articles, signed by Henry, and sent by him to the late Pope. Finally, he said he would give the lie to any man who said he had not kept the promise he made at Ardres; if this was Henry's only complaint, it was a bad one, and whenever he chose to come into the field he would be beforehand with him.
