R. O.
Of the money on Antony Vivalde's letter of exchange, has received 2,000 ducats from Florence, at 63d. each, for which he has given a receipt as for the business of the King and Wolsey. Has given to the merchants letters of exchange to the value of 500l., and has received others for the amount of 6,000 ducats for Wolsey's business. The letters are directed to Tuke. Wishes to know whether to take the money as for the King's expences or Wolsey's.
Has spent on the affair of Winchester 8,000 ducats and 600 of his own, the account of which he has sent to his Grace. Besides, it is dangerous to write one's name on the King's books. The report of this money being for Wolsey might increase the difficulty of the Winchester affair. Bryan alone receives the money of the duke of Suffolk, and spends it for the King's affairs. Has not yet received any money from the King, except what Tuke gave him at his departure, of which he has spent on his journey, for the security of the King's books, about 500 cr. The remainder can be counted as his diets from Nov. 26, so that at the end of April more than 100l. will be due to him. Begs him to pay that amount to Nicolas, or to Antony Bonvisi for him. Sir Gregory complains greatly that he has never heard of the money which Tuke wrote that he had paid to Bonvisi by the commission of Vincent Casale, and wishes to know how the King intends him to provide for his affairs. Is anxious to return. Rome, 26 April.
P.S.—"I do not doubt but we shall be saved from the convention that ye write of to me, ejus beneficio, qui uno tempore contraria molitur, et qui spem et timorem videtur indiciis non obscuris in uno collocasse. Perdonatemi sel vero e alle volte molesto."

Have received your letters, written with your own hand, in which your Grace "doth not only, of your great goodness toward me, monish me of that faults by your Grace in me esteemed, but also doth comfort my sorrowful heart in that which it doth please your Grace to write unto me, your most humble and assured servant, with your most gracious hand so kindly." Considers Wolsey his chief refuge next God and the King. To avoid similar faults in future, will never write to any man of honor in the court without sending Wolsey a copy of the letter. Although so much bound to him before for his goodness shown to him in his bringing up, is now ready to spend his heart's blood in his service. Excuses his not writing sooner, having been troubled, not only with his old disease, but also with an extreme ague, of which he was like to die. Alnwick, 26 April.

Thanks him for his gracious and pleasant letters in his own hand, which greatly consoled and rejoiced him. Has so instructed and advertised the bearer that he trusts he will henceforth be conformable to [the King's] pleasure, in giving better attendance, and leaving off his prodigality, excessive expense, sullenness, mistrust, "dysdysdn, makyng of parts," or doing anything that may offend him. He has put himself in the place of a son to the writer (Wolsey ?), and has promised to be advised by him, and he does not doubt that he will more and more deserve "your ... et."

Wrote last on the 25th. The post that Don Fernando sent through France in company with de Rossynboix returned yesterday from Spain with letters from the Emperor to my Lady and the king of Bohemia. Rossynboix was despatched by the Emperor with speed, and comes through France. Guillaume des Barres remains in the Imperial court, to finish their commission.
There is news that the diet of Spires is finished, and concludes, among other articles, that the Pope should hold a General Council for the reformation of heresy within two years, or else the people of Dutchland will hold a council to withdraw themselves from the Pope's obedience. They are much more inclined to human liberty than to spiritual obedience. Brussels, 27 April 1529.
Is just informed that my Lady has sent Monsieur de Monfort to inform don Fernando of the conclusion of the lords of the Order and the Emperor's council to fulfil the Emperor's petition, and that all the estates are ordered to appear here in court on May 10, "and that as then what some ever shall be concluded that he shall be advertised in haste." Has written in former letters that the Emperor's intent is that the said don Fernando shall enter with his army into France or Burgundy this next summer. Has also heard that the Emperor gave good audience to Rossynboix, who comes with diligence to the French king; "but yet, for all this, the Emperor will lose no time, but will go forward toward Italy, and requires his brother don Fernando to revenge him the best that he may. The petition that the Emperor asks at this time of all these Low Countries is 1,200,000 florins. Et feliciter valete."

Although, by a writing signed by the earl of Desmond, I brought your Majesty word of his intention, I will here set forth some particulars of what took place with him, and of the power he holds, and of his person and his men.
Arrived at Cork, where the Earl is not well loved. Many Irish entered my ship, and told me that some days before a gentleman of Desmond's had arrived from Spain, and that his Majesty had sent the Earl a cup of gold. Left that port, and came the other day, owing to bad weather, to another called Biran (Beer haven) belonging to a knight who is under the Earl, by whom I learned that he was 25 leagues off, and was joining himself with other lords of the land, his enemies. Sent a messenger with a letter to let him know of my arrival. Got an answer in four days, desiring me to come to the port of Dingle (Tingla), where he would meet me. The superscription of the letter he wrote me was addressed, "Capellan del Emperador nuestro soberano señor." On many other occasions, when he named his Majesty, he said "our sovereign lord." He then sent to tell the Lords he was going to join that he must delay other 40 days. Before I entered the port agreed on he sent six gentlemen to ask me to go to another harbour of his, two leagues thence, to help him to take certain French and English ships anchored there, saying he had sent his galleys thither two hours before, and was gone by land with 500 men. From this I excused myself by good reasons, and sent them back to the Earl with my answer. Next day, the 21 April, I disembarked at Dingle, and was well received by all the town, and by some knights despatched by the Earl to meet me. In four hours came the Earl himself, with about 500 horse and as many halberdiers. He would not suffer that I should visit him at his house, and had determined on coming to me. He asked after the Emperor, who, I told him, was well, and sent commendations to him. We then banqueted upon the ground; after which the Earl and I withdrew with some of his council into my chamber. Being asked to declare my credence, I gave it to the Earl in English, and afterwards by his desire declared it to his council in Latin; viz., that the Earl's servant, Galfregidus, having lately brought letters from him to the Emperor, expressing his desire to enter into strict amity with his Majesty, in which he agreed to hold as friends or enemies whomsoever the Emperor bade him, and desiring that the Emperor should send some one to arrange the terms, the writer had been sent accordingly.
On this the Earl talked awhile with his council; then took off, his bonnet, and expressed his gratitude to the Emperor, who had sent me to protect him, saying that his Majesty was placed in the world to prevent one prince from injuring another. He desired to consult how he might do his Majesty service in these countries, and began to tell me about his lineage, and the enmity his ancestors had borne to England, and the cause of it. I assured him of the aid and favor of the Emperor, and desired that he would put in writing what he had said about his lineage, and the cause of their enmity to England. He said it was enough to have told it to me, and that I might report it. I answered that I would do so, but it was too long to remember perfectly; on which he promised to comply. We then talked of the amount of aid he desired of the Emperor, when he asked for four great vessels of 200 tons, and six smaller ones, with artillery, and 500 Flemings in them. I showed him this would not be reasonable, unless he first showed what service he could do the Emperor. He said he would give the Emperor every security for his fidelity. I said he had nothing to give except in Ireland, and that even if the Emperor could have all Ireland, he required no security but his word of honor. And so we agreed that an article should be drawn up about it.
The Earl always treated me very well, often sending me venison and cows to the ship. His greatest enmity is towards the cardinal of England. He said he had been in alliance with France, and had a Breton kinsman named M. de Quindal (Kendal ?), who lived near Bordeaux, and who has been in the French king's army; but he promised henceforth to hold the French as enemies, as they were enemies to the Emperor.
ii. The power which he holds, and in what parts.—In Ireland are four principal cities, of which Dublin is the largest and richest. The Earl has no possessions in that neighbourhood; but his kinsman Kildare, who has the rule there, has been married to his sister, and has been imprisoned in the Tower of London, they say on Desmond's account. The other three are Waterford, Cork, and Limerick, in all which he has many adherents. He has much power among the wild Irish. He has many knights who pay him tribute. There are ten castles on his lands, one of which, named Galvan, the king of England has in vain attempted to take.
iii. His person and vassals.—He is 34 years old, of middle height, very well spoken; he is cool and confident in battle. He walks lame, having a gunshot wound in one leg. He keeps better justice in his land than any lord in Ireland, especially as to theft and murder. His men are much given to these things, but show no skill in anything except in daring death like animals. Their arms are small bows and swords. They wear coats of mail (cotas de maya) down to the feet, with their "gorsals" and halberts. The Earl has many horses, some of them pretty fair for breaking lances. The men all ride without saddle or stirrups, and do wonders on horseback.

I, James earl of Desmond, am of royal blood, descended from Brito, who conquered Britain, both greater and less, as well as Scotland and Ireland.
Causes of the enmity against the king of England. The first cause is an old prophecy, believed by the English and contained in their old chronicles, that an earl of Desmond will conquer all England. 2. My grandfather Thomas was beheaded for fear of this prophecy, when no crime was alleged against him. 3. Richard, the son of the king of England (Perkin Warbeck), hearing of the enmity of the King and my predecessors, came hither with a great army in the time of my father, who brought nearly all Ireland into subjection to him. 4. The King detained my kinsman Gerald earl of Kildare in prison, until my father liberated him by his power, and obtained the viceroyalty (locum regis) in Ireland for his kinsman. 5. The King, hearing that my father was paralytic, when I was about eight years old, stirred up both English and Irish to attack him, though there was peace between them. They have, however, obtained no victory in 24 years. 6. While there was peace between me and the King, his attorneys plundered my servants who were trading in France and Flanders to the value of 9,000l., and the King still detains them in prison. I therefore beg your assistance, and promise mine faithfully. 7. I have 16,500 foot (decem sex milia peditum cum dimidio) and 1,500 horse, with the following friends and allies:—Princeps Oberayn, with 600 horse and 1,000 foot; Theobald de Burgh, with 100 horse and 600 foot; Sir Richard Poer, with 40 horse and 200 foot; lord Thos. Butler, with 60 horse and 240 foot; Sir John Geraldi, with 80 horse and 440 foot; Sir Gerald the younger, with 40 horse and 200 foot; Sir Thos. Comitis (Courcy), with 40 horse and 200 foot; the White Knight, with 40 horse and 300 foot; lord Odonyll, prince of "Ulidia" (Ulster ?), with 800 horse and 4,000 foot; the knight of Walle, with 40 horse and 240 horse (fn. 1); Captain Ocunachuyr, with 30 horse and 200 foot; and others. 8. I have a firm alliance with the king of Scotland, and frequent communication with him by letters and ambassadors. 9. My intention is "meam potestatem et amicorum meorum mea propria persona consummere" against Piers Butler, the King's deputy, and the King's cities in Ireland,—Limerick, Waterford and Dublin. 10. Asks especially for artillery. 11. Will be a friend to the Emperor's friends, and enemy to his enemies, and a true subject to him. Firma, 28 April 1529, in the presence of Gonsalvo Fernandez, Denis Mitdoule (M'Donel), doctor of arts and medicine, Denis Cather, and Maurice Herly, dean. Signed by Desmond.

D. Hieronymus Privadelus held a disputation for the King on the matter of the excusator. Is glad that he accompanied such an excellent man from Bononia. In two discussions, of which one lasted for a whole hour, he imported much light and life to a half dead cause, and carried away the victory from his adversaries. He adduced new and elegant reasons, which no one can refute. The King should take him as an adviser. It is said in the city that the French king has come to an agreement with the Swiss, and that the Vaywode is making great attempts with the favor of the kings of England and France.

Wrote on the 18th that they had received a verdict from the quest impanelled at Sandgate concerning the commission of Sewers, but as the verdict was not complete, postponed it until today. Wish to know the King's pleasure upon it, as to how they shall proceed with the King's tenants, considering the decay of the lands in consequence of the destruction of the sluice by the King's order six years ago. The commissions lately granted for repairs, &c. cannot now be acted on, as they enforce the presence of three, and Sir Ric. Weston and Chr. Hales are both absent. Could act on the commission of Sewers, but the expence of making the sluice and banks will be so great that they thought it best to inform him of it. Have set in order all that is to be done by his Majesty's tenants before 14 June. Reminds him of their lack of money. Calais, 29 April 1529. Signed.

If Wolsey will make him sure of these manors he will give this house freely without asking a penny, but desires that he may retain his dwelling for three years that he may in the meanwhile buy a house in Epswyche (Ipswich), "and to make it somewhat easy for me with a chapel to serve God in when I may not well stir to ride." Begs that when Wolsey has the whole house he may have his chambers beneath for himself, his wife and servants. Epswyche, 30 April.
