Doubts not that he has heard from his ambassadors of the negotiations for peace between his officers and those of the King of France. Has made stipulations as to what concerns Henry. It is now concluded, and Henry is named as common ally. Toledo, 22 Jan. 1526. Signed.

"Copy of an answer made by T. Magnus to the letter afore-sent from the council of Scotland." (fn. 1)
Has received their letter dated Edinburgh, the 19th. According to their desire, has moved my lord of Westmoreland to tarry a little time for redress, and has written to the same effect to the earl of Cumberland, who still complains that he can have no day of meeting with Maxwell. Westmoreland, though he should have been in Yorkshire by this time on the King's business, has consented to remain. Magnus will write to the King and my lord Legate for confirmation of the peace now concluded. Berwick, 22 Jan.

1916. [TAYLER to WOLSEY.]
Since Mr. Treasurer (Fitzwilliam) left on the 20 Jan., there has been no certain news. Processions through the city were ordered last Sunday, "to pray God to send good tidings," as my Lady had had no word out of Spain from the King for a long time, and it was said the ways were stopped. Hearing that a messenger had come from Spain today, Tayler went to court, but could get no interview of Madame, as she had taken medicine. She had kept her chamber since Madame d'Alençon's return. The Chancellor, however, informed him that a servant of the prince of Orange had come for the liberation of his master. He says peace is concluded between the Emperor and the French king,—that Francis is to marry the lady Eleanor, and that Montmorency is on his way from Spain. He brought a letter to De Prat, the Emperor's ambassador here, who has shown it to Madame. For all this, the Chancellor says, they do not believe the news, they have been deceived so often; but he wished them reported to Wolsey. Robertet confirmed what the Chancellor said. Lyons, 23 Jan. Signature burnt off.

At his arrival John Joachim's folks have come to ask him to stop at Joachim's house, which he does. They make him great cheer. The ways and the horses are very bad. Can hardly get sufficient to carry his charge. Lyons, 23 Jan.

Sends news from Hectore, received Tuesday, Jan. 23. Asks if he is to be retained. Has paid him five months' wages, at 14 cr. a month, beside other costs. Cannot bear it all from his own purse, as he has other spies abroad. Will discharge him at his next coming, unless Wolsey sends word to the contrary. Caley, 24 Jan.

"Ill. et Rme &c., xvij. præsentis mensis scripsi ultimas ad D. v. R., quarum copiam præsentibus alligatam mitto si forte illæ istuc non pervenissent. Postea iterum fui cum S. D. N. ut aliquid aliud a Ste sua intelligerem scribendum ad D. v. R., et tandem nihil aliud ab eo evellere potui quam per ipsas ultimas scripserim, quod volui D. v. R. significare, ut saltem cognoscat me fecisse diligentiam meam.
"Dictum est mihi per aliquem fidedignum quod Papa noviter habuit licteras ex Hispania a cardinale de Salviatis per quas significat pervenisse illuc nuncium unum ex illis qui capitula hic facta inter Papam et Cæsareos portabant, et quod Cæsar ostenderet se contentum de dictis capitulis, tamen non devenerat ad eorum approbationem sub prætextu quod de proximo venturus erat in Italiam vicerex qui facultatem et commissionem secum portaret omnia faciendi quæ Papa mandaret; quod videtur Papæ non multum satisfecisse, cum præsertim innuant licteræ fieri illic præparationem non parvi numeri militum qui cum Vicerege venire haberent sub prætextu securitatis personæ suæ. Dictum est mihi etiam Papam ponderasse quod Roma post adventum supradictarum licterarum instetit pluries apud suam Sanctitatem super prorogatione termini dati ad exibendum approbationem Cæsaris super dictis capitulis, et quod etiam ex hoc Papa comprendit non sincere pro parte ipsorum procedi, sed eos solum quærere dilationem ad eorum propositum, unde audio Papam respondisse non esse opus hujusmodi prorogatione, et quod ex alio latere promisit, præsertim oratori [Veneto] nullo modo ire prorogationem.
"Quod Galli præparent se ad bellum etiam in Italia superfluum videtur mihi id scribere, cum, si verum sit, non dubitem D. v. R. esse notissimum.

Bradford, 193.
Thanks to God, a peace has been made and sworn to. You will present our letter to the Regent, and offer our congratulations. As we are anxious to see the prince of Orange, Guildford, an Englishman, and others of our household, request the lady Regent to send them at once; and ask also for the deliverance of the bishop of Autun and of St. Valier. You will follow the Regent in her journey to Bayonne. Toledo, 25 Jan. 1526.
