608. JOHN TEBOLD to CROMWELL.
Received Cromwell's letter, dated 25 March, by bearer, and will take the advice of Sir Thomas Willughby, with whom he has since been. Before the delivery of the letter much of the goods in the manor place of Hever had been removed by advice of the abp. of Canterbury. Part of the stuff and all the implements yet remain. Has stayed them, by Sir Thomas's advice, till the King's further pleasure. 26 March. Signed.

611. NICOLAS [SHAXTON], Bp. of Salisbury, to CROMWELL.
Wrote to the chapter of Salisbury for one Thos. Wharleton, a servant of his, who sings as well as any among them, to be Cromwell's vicar there. He is honest, studious, and of good judgment, but they have refused him because he is no priest, and Cromwell's stall is a priest's stall. There is more need of honest priests to serve cures, than to spare them for singing in choirs. If Cromwell will dispense with Wharleton, he will gladly be his vicar. Ramesbury, 26 March. Signed.

615. JOHN EARL OF OXFORD and HENRY EARL OF ESSEX to AUDELEY and CROMWELL.
According to [command received in letters] dated 20 March, have viewed the fortifications of Harwich. The inhabitants are very ready and diligent, having made two trenches before our coming 80 rods in length, and two bulwarks. Nothing wanting but ordnance, and they will bear expense of powder. There is a place "between that h[aven and] Colnes being on Suffolk"? side, a point called Lan[ger Point] where there may arrive and land 20 thousand [men] and resort to their ships again without dang[er, for] neither they of Suffolk side, where they may a[rrive], nor yet they of Harwich should do them dis[pleasure]." A substantial blockhouse should be made there. Have not been able to visit all places with the speed required, being so busy at Harwich and thereabouts. Have therefore ordered all justices near the sea to cause vigilant watch to be made and the beacons tended. Have also ordered ... nightly to "lye alofe in the sea" and set wisps on fire if they see any likelihood of enemies. St. Osy, 27 March. Signed: John Oxynford—Henry Essex.

616. ANTHOINETTE DE SAVEUSES to LADY LISLE.
Apologizes for a mistake in her last in the account of the five dozen nightcaps which she sent. The prices of the men's and women's caps can easily be verified. Begs she will think it nothing but a mistake; for the writer, having no convenient carrier, tore up a letter that was dated the 13th inst., and as there was a man of Calais who came to Dunkirk to speak to her and promised to carry anything she wanted, she made such haste that she did not see what she was writing. Has had some correspondence with the religieuse and thinks the price very dear, but is assured the articles are as dear at the place where they are made. Dunkirk, 27 March.

618. CECYLL BODENHAM, late Abbess of Wylton, to CROMWELL.
In accordance with Cromwell's letters to the commissioners in the West parts for taking surrenders, they have sequestered the tenants of Foffount, Newton, Chalke, and Wassherne, belonging to the monastery of Wilton, which she had leased to her friends and kinsfolk, as was surmised. Leased Foffount and Newton a long time ago to the bearer her kinsman, as she was without father or brother or any such assured friend, and the commissioners assigned her to live in the said farm place and adjourned the bearer to know Cromwell's pleasure.
Leased Wassherne to her special good friend Mr. Philip Hoby, at the contemplation of Cromwell's letters, and he is charged to the King with the whole year's rent. The tenants cannot pay if they are prevented now from sowing their barley. Begs that she may not be "exempted more than other religious houses" seeing she has only done what is lawful and just.

Begs that the warrant for his diets and post money may be sped, for without it he cannot [receive] money from Mr. Tuke, and his money here being clean [gone], he will be unable to despatch any more posts. Begs the King to thank "this poor man Barnabie, [who has] been very diligent to search and bulte out such things as [was given] him to do." Sens, 28 March.

I would have sent the Bible for which my lord sent, before this, if I had known his pleasure more fully. I now send a Bible in French, by a merchant named Style, without whose help I could not have done it, for we may send such things sooner to England than to Calais. I spoke to Guylaume le Gras about Mr. James' board. He says you may give what you please, for he will not ask anything. He had caused your crepyns to be made, but they were not to his mind and he had others made. As for the token you promised to send, none can please me so well as to know how to do you a pleasure. Your letters are a golden token to me. Paris, Friday before Palm Sunday, 1539.

625. NORFOLK to CROMWELL.
Yesternight came to me Berwick pursuivant from Lancaster herald, who had taken leave of the king of Scots, but remained at Edinburgh for letters to the King. The king of Scots had commanded him to send me word that on Monday or Tuesday he would send some of his house and of the Borders to me. The king of Scots had said he would never break with the King his uncle, with other very good words which Lancaster would show me at his coming on Monday next. Berwick says that on Thursday last proclamation was made in Edinburgh for every man between the ages of sixteen and sixty to be ready at a day's warning; and like proclamations were sent to all parts. A secret friend of the earl of Angus, who is in authority about the ordnance of Scotland, said that 16 great pieces and 60 field pieces were new made in Edinburgh castle to be ready twenty days after Easter. On Wednesday last, at Lithkoo, Berwick heard a friar preach before the young Queen extolling the Bishop of Rome's authority. The bishops of Glasgow, Galloway, and Aberdeen were present, but no temporal lords. Friends of his had asked how we agreed with France, saying "As France doth with you so will we do." The clergy of Scotland desire war, as they fear their King will do as the King's highness has done in his realm, as many of the temporalty wish him to do. The abbot of Arbroath, now bishop of St. Andrews, is gone into France to know what help his master shall have of France and of the bishop of Rome if he break with us. Some say he will go on to Rome, and be at a meeting that shall be between the Emperor and the French king. He will do what hurt he can, "for England hath no greater enemy to his power." The young Queen is all papist, the old Queen not much less, and has taken Henry Stewarde again. I am sorry she was at Sterlyn, so Berwick could not speak with her. Daily there come to me gentlemen and clerks, who flee out of Scotland, as they say, for reading the Scripture in English. I give them gentle words and sometimes money. Here has been a good season, the wife of the late captain of Dunbar, (fn. 4) afraid to return, as she says, for holding to our ways. She was in England and saw Queen Jane. She was Sir Patrick Hamelton's daughter, and her brother (fn. 5) was burnt in Scotland three or four years past.
Is astonished to see this town and castle so weak, since he last saw it 14 years ago. Describes how he has set workmen to work upon it; but Sir George Lawson can only get 310l. of St. Mary's abbey, and there is no money of the King's here, so that unless money is sent within 14 days after Easter the work must stop. Asks him to send the pardons for those of Tyndale. The gentlemen of Northumberland, except those of this garrison, who have come to meet him, are very badly horsed, but they say the Scots borderers are worse. Asks Cromwell to make his excuse for not writing to the King. Berwick, 29 March.
P.S., in his own hand.—The merchants of two Scottish ships now gone into Flanders are commanded to buy as many handguns as they can get. If these ungracious priests bring not their King to war this summer, I hope he will ere Christmas take much of their lands into his own hands. This shall lack no setting forth from me, if any of his secret servants come hither.

627. JOACHIN [DES VAUX], French Ambassador at Venice, to MONTMORENCY.
Letters from Spain of 18 and 27 Feb. show that the money granted to the Emperor is 700,000 ducats payable in three years. The Emperor, on being asked by the Venetian ambassador about his coming to Italy said he meant to do so, but would like to know first if the Venetians and the Pope were ready for the enterprise against the Turk. The ambassador begged the Emperor if he had not the will or power to carry it out this year to say so that a truce might be arranged. The Emperor said he intended to carry it out, but if the Venetians wanted a truce the French king ought to negotiate it. The Venetian ambassador in Spain writes that, knowing that the English cardinal had arrived about 14 Feb., and had together with the Nuncio exhorted the Emperor to the enterprise of England, he (the ambassador) asked the Emperor whether he would listen to it. The Emperor replied that although the Pope and the King exhorted him to it he would not listen to it, as his attention was taken up with that of the Levant as the most necessary. Venice, 15 March 1539.

30 March.628. BISHOP TUNSTALL.
Sermon preached by Cuthbert, bishop of Durham, before Henry VIII. "upon Palm Sunday last" on Philipp. II. 5.
From the humility of Christ, he goes on to reflect on the worldliness and ambition of the Papacy, illustrated by an incident when he was at Rome in Julius II's time 34 years ago, and to dispute the primacy of St. Peter. He then denounces the bp. of Rome's conduct in moving war against England, because he could no longer "use his usurped power," and suck out of the realm immense sums of money, and in getting Raynolde Pole to stir up other nations against England; whose treasons have been disclosed by his own brother. [Some extracts from this sermon are given in Strype's Eccl. Mem. I. I. 518–522.]

She said that if the King commanded her to leave the house she would gladly go though she begged her bread, and she cared for no pension, and prayed them to trouble her no further. Sent to Bruton again, and heard that the abbot is still in London. Hope to finish the rest of the business before Easter. Ambresbury, 30 March. Signed.

631. MELANCTHON to CRANMER.
Franciscus (Burgratus) on returning has not only extolled Cranmer's piety but explained the dangerous conflicts in which he is engaged and the constancy and moderation which he maintains.
Wishes that Britain, having stamped out the tyranny of the Bishop of Rome, would cast out the abuses which from Rome have flowed into the churches. For how do these things accord; do you retain the impious laws of Rome after having removed their author? Why not get rid of the poison with the author? Therefore with great sorrow we read your late edict in which not only is marriage prohibited to priests but superstitious vows are decked with false arguments (fucatis rationibus ornantur). I do not accuse you, or Cromwell, or Latimer, who I think have sought to soften the edict by the addition of a clause promising public correction of abuses. But some others I do blame, who there pertinaciously fight for impious rites, of which some are openly repugnant to Scripture, others are defended by a certain new sophistry with astutely devised excuses; as when they command all customs to be kept, but without superstition—difference of foods, creeping to the cross and similar follies. And they give these ceremonies mystic significations, such as mythologists teach are to be given to the fables of the poets. This sophistry, upon the mischief of which he enlarges, mentioning incidentally a superstition of the Emperor Maximilian in wearing a shirt of St. George over his armour, was much used by the author of the Reformatio Coloniensis (fn. 6) which, the writer hears, is read with great applause in England.
Do London and Winchester think they are bringing a new philosophy down from Heaven if they pick out these allegories from Dionysius (fn. 7) or the Rationale Divinorum (fn. 8) ? I am not so unlettered as to wonder at these absurdities or to be unable at need to feign prettier interpretations. I am hurt at the ingratitude of such disputants, who after borrowing their best excuses from us use them against us; so that not seldom in our wounds we recognise our own pens.
Hitherto we have waged war with the old sophistry of the monks. Now a new sophistry is brought forward (with powerful supporters who measure and corrupt religions by human prudence) which, if it gain strength, will produce a dreadful confusion of religions. Wherefore let the simple truth shine forth in the churches, retain the ceremonies divinely given and some useful rites consonant with Holy Writ. Let there be moderation, gravity and elegance; and let not follies be defended which nourish superstition. Augustine says of his own time that with the accumulated ceremonies and superstitions the bondage (servitus) of Christians was worse than that of the Jews. How much harsher does that bondage become if in the churches pharisaical rites are enforced by bodily punishment. But you say that arrogance is to be punished and contempt of the royal name. I know these things are alleged; but it is unjust to interpret every violation of such edicts as seditious. If a pious man omits creeping to the cross because he deems such silliness superstitious will you pronounce him seditious (although he did contrary to the royal edict) if otherwise he is of honest life? Believe me it is not expedient to accustom rulers to this new and bitter interpretation of the laws. You know the proportion between acts and punishments insisted on by Aristotle, violation of which exposes republics to slavery.
I have written at this length not to accuse you but to show my own sorrow. The enemies of the Gospel threaten us no less cruelly than Britain; but God will guard the Church of pious men. The author of the tragedy Pammachius de tyrannide Romani Episcopi has dedicated this work to you. He is a poor and pious priest and has heard that you favour genius, and therefore he desired to bring himself into your notice. I beg you to encourage him by some gift. 30 March 1539.
Reverently commends himself to Latimer.

633. [SIR] THOMAS CHEYNE to CROMWELL.
Last night I received yours of the 30th. I am fully satisfied touching my commission. As I wrote before, the muster of the three hundreds in the Downs was very unsatisfactory, both in number and personages; not one man seemed meet to be of the King's guard. And whereas the King has been informed that I stirred the King's people, I did indeed write to the Master of the Rolls that he should write to the justices of the peace between Canterbury and the sea (because he knows them better than I) to be at Sandwich with 2,000 or 3,000 men. Upon that warning the country farther off, as about Asheford and Crambroke, prepared themselves and were coming towards the sea-side when I sent to countermand them homewards. I have not stirred any of the King's people, nor will without good grounds. I have sent a crayer along the coasts to the furthest part of Holland to spy, and will certify the report on its return. By what I can hear from France and Flanders, all is well. Dover Castle, 31 March. Signed.

Sorry I am I cannot come and see you. I marvel at the intended hindrance of the bp. of Winchester towards you in Hampshire; but it works not after their purposed malice, for no one ever had so many voices to be their knight of the shire as you first, and Mr. Worsley the other. The cause of the Bishop's or priests' malice is either that you "ffeett" away the jewels from St. Swithin's, where the Bishop takes himself to be abbot or else that you "are the mane that is like to purge the cankered and rusty hearts from their wolde supertstytutyens" and I trust "these lurking wolde pyyattes shall be well known at length."

View of frankpledge or leet of the King, held at Overe, Monday after the Annunciation, 30 Hen. VIII., before Thos. lord Crumwell, steward.
The jurors, whose names are given, say that John Harware, late abbot of Vale Royall, consented to the slaying of Hugh Chalner, his monk, and that Chalner said, the day before his throat was cut, that he feared being murdered. That the abbot tried to prevent his tenants serving the King at the late insurrection, and would have cast certain of them in prison if it had not been for Sir Peter Dutton and Hugh Starkey. He said that a marriage licence from the King's officers was not lawful and that the King was not lawfully married. Roger Harwar, the abbot's brother, was pleased at the insurrection, saying that the King "did overpress" the poor commons. That Roger Brumfelde and his father's servants took away wood and kids which John Cowper, bailiff of Overe and Weverham, had arrested to the King's use, and that Rauff Bostok is a common hunter.

642. THE GERMAN PROTESTANTS.
"The copy of such things as Martin Luther, Philip Melanchthon, with certain cities and princes of Germany, their adherents, have admitted."
They admit that there ought to be a policy and government in the Church, that there should be bishops, and that it is "convenient" there should be a bishop of Rome above others, who may gather them to examine doctrine but not that he should make realms subject to him. Would not separate on questions of the choice of curates, (fn. 12) holidays, or ceremonies, if there were a concord of doctrine. Approve of confession, &c., under certain conditions. Declare their sacramental doctrine, and their view of images, monasticism, &c. Think the marriage of priests should be in the Pope's hands to admit the same and forbid concubinage. Purgatory and pardons should be discussed in the schools. The Zuinglians and Œcolampadians have not yet received these articles. Luther has revoked all his books containing anything against these articles and acknowledged his faults. March 1539. (fn. 13)

Doubts not Cromwell is privy to such articles as he sent to the King against the Church of Rome. Trusts the King will put him to trial or set him at liberty. If the King doubts his behaviour hereafter, is content to remain half a year in house with any of these bps., viz., Canterbury, Durham, Winchester, Salisbury, Worcester, or London. Has no right to meddle when the King and Council are daily setting all things in good order. The raging of his tongue against the Church was for lack of discretion, and now the Council is about to make due instructions for the quietness of the whole realm. Begs Cromwell's intercession to be released from the Marshalsea. Signed: "William Colyns legis lator."

I have had much communication with my brother for the recovery of that traitor Phelippis, for whose recovery I have learned pregnant reasons. It you would speak with my said brother I suppose you would allow his travail therein, and I will be bound for his return at the day you appoint. You will find him a young man of wondrous fine wit, trusty and true. He shall put the King to no cost in this. Finally, if he do not purge himself, "which he can never do but by recovery of him again," I account him utterly cast away; and such a wit to be so lost were pity. Not signed.

16 A document, professing to be a S.B. dated "2 die Martis" (qu. Marcii ?) 30 Hen. VIII. granting the manor of Swaffham to Mary duchess of Richmond is printed, with several inaccuracies, in Nott's Surrey and Wyatt, Vol. I. App. No. XXXVII. If this were an original S.B. it was manifestly insufficient, which may have been the reason why it was found among the MSS. of lord Northampton, and not among the S.B.'s of Chancery. The lord Chancellor, seeing that it was invalid, may have returned it to the Duchess, who thereupon obtained a valid grant from the King.
