106. Richard Bedon to Cromwell.
Since Sir Giles Covertt and I spoke to you about the house of canons called Shulbredde in Sussex, I wrote to the Prior of the offer I made to you in Westminster Hall. He is willing to perform my promise if you will see that they are kept out of the book and dwell at rest, and "that you will make Master Hennege with you in this matter." This done, you shall each have 20s. a year by patent during your lives. If you will make the patents, and send them to me by bearer, I will get them sealed. Let Mr. Hennege know that this comes by me, that he may be the better master to me. I occupy a stewardship of the bishop of Sarum under him. If you obtain this for this poor house, I doubt not but I shall get you a patent or two more in these parts, "and then I trust that you and I shall be better acquainted, &c." Godalming, Thursday after St. Valentine.
The house is of my lord of Northumberland's foundation, and I think my lord Percy would help you. "It is not above 80l. land, and keepeth seven canons, and keepeth the house, and serveth God barely well."

107. M. Prior and the Brethren Of Shullbrede to Master Bedon.
Are satisfied with his letter if they can but have a certificate that they shall have no more trouble about house, goods, and lands. "This done, let them make their writing reasonably after due conscience, and it shall be sealed."

108. Mai to Charles V.
Wrote on the 13th. Writes to the Comendador Mayor about the affairs of Sienna. (fn. 1)
Conversation with the Pope about Italian affairs. In the matter of England, hears that there is dealing by means of the duke of Albany, who wrote to the French king for the king of England to come to the trial. It will be a very good thing if it happens. The Pope told me that the furies are at work in the English Parliament. In this case it seems they are resting, and it will all end in money. The King writes again for a hat for the Auditor of the Chamber, but I think he will get it no more than before.
Since writing last, we have gained the point that remissoria will be granted to examine witnesses in partibus without delaying the process, in case the other party does not appear. We shall also demand, on the one hand, sentence in this process; and, on the other, compulsorias will be sent to Spain and Flanders, and the whole world, to gain time in proving the justice of our cause.
Has received letters from the Empress, of the 2nd inst. She and the Princes were well. The president has sent opinions of lawyers there, and other things. The Marquis of Mus visited him yesterday, and expressed his willingness to serve the Empress.
Jacobo Salviati has been trying to persuade the Ambassador of the king of the Romans to slacken (qu. to acquiesce?—"que se afloxasse") in his demands for delay in the English cause, and said to him in a passion that the king of England would incite the king of France to declare war.

109. Charles V. to Dr. Ortiz.
"Has received his letter, sent from Savoy. Is persuaded that his learning and industry will contribute to make the good right of the queen of England very clear. Hopes he has already arrived at Rome, and that Micer Mai, the Imperial Ambassador, has fully informed him of what he is expected to do. Being quite sure that he will employ all his diligence and learning in conscientiously doing his duty, promises him never to forget the services he will render him. Brussels, 16 Feb. 1531."

111. Sir John Mablisteyn to Sir Giles Russell, Commander of Badisford and Dingley.
My Lord has appointed his chapter to begin on Thursday after Whitsunday.
If Russell will send up what he wishes to have expedition of, will make it ready. Has given Russell's presentation according to his letter, and the party is bound for the pension.
"And as touching the alberage (?), when you do not first agree with him that shall have your presentation, I shall do nothing therein, and no more I can with this person." My Lord does his best concerning his charge with the spiritualty, but we are at no certainty. It will be hard for Russell to get a chaplain not resident for his chapels and churches, for my Lord can get none to serve this choir on such conditions. We have not yet heard who is Baylie of the Eagle. London, 18 Feb. 1530.

112. Chapuys to Charles V.
I have received your letters of the 9th, with enclosures, which have been of great consolation to the Queen, who, in addition to the troubles of which I last wrote, has been shown letters from the English ambassador at your Court, stating that the King of the Romans had been made prisoner by the Lutheran Princes. This has given her incredible distress, and yet she has not dared to send and ask me about it, fearing that I should confirm it. She is surprised so little has been done in Rome; for, after what Mai and the other ambassadors have written, she felt sure the Pope would, according to promise, declare the pains and censures of the first brief, and order that the lady should be dismissed the Court. Now it appears the brief which the Pope has lately decreed is much more feeble than the first, and that his Holiness was afraid he had not the power to do as right and justice required. At this the English have recovered their breath, and, instead of talking about sending away the Lady, she remains more openly acknowledged than ever. And now the Act has been passed against the Pope, of which I wrote in my last. It has been drawn up in these words : "Hujus cleri et ecclesiæ Anglicanæ dominum ac protectorem singularem, ejusque unicum summum ac supremum caput, quantum per legem Christi licet, regiam Majestatem agnoscimus et confitemur." By this his Holiness will perceive the truth of what I have always told the Nuncio and written to Mai, that his timidity (doulceur) and dissimulation would not only prejudice the Queen's interests, but his own authority. And it seems to the Queen and her friends that the Pope has no great desire to settle the matter, and will justify what the Duke of Norfolk one day said to me, that his Holiness was glad there should always be some discord (zizanie) among the Princes, fearing that if they were united they would reform the Church. In truth, if his Holiness had the capacity (talent) to judge the cause, he might have done it long ago without making excuses for putting it off, by demanding, as he now does, the first process, which if he do not obtain from cardinal Campeggio, there is no means of having it from here, and still less of obtaining thereto certain depositions (prouances) upon some articles sent me by Mai; all which, in my own opinion, and that of others, is altogether superfluous, for since the opposite party are in contumacy there is no occasion for any other proof. It is true among the other articles sent to me is one which, if it could be obtained, would take away every scruple; viz., if it could be shown that the marriage with prince Arthur had not been consummated; but as the fact is not probable in itself, and all those who know about it have been suborned by the King, it would be necessary, in order to verify it, to speak to those of whom the president of Castile writes; and, seeing the danger of prolonging the affair, it would be better to leave that alone, as the justice of the Queen's cause is quite clear without it; and, according to what cardinal Egidio lately wrote, the Pope and the whole Consistory were sufficiently resolved, so that, after observing ordinary terms of justice, sentence might be delivered in one month or six weeks. I have written about it at great length to Mai, and have shown it expressly to the Nuncio, who acknowledges that the Pope had committed errors in this matter, not from malice, but from ignorance of the character of these men, whom he hoped to win over by gentleness, and that perhaps he was influenced by timidity, which is constitutional with him. If the Pope had ordered the Lady to be separated from the King, the King would never have pretended to claim sovereignty over the Church; for, as far as I can understand, she and her father have been the principal cause of it. The latter, speaking of the affair a few days ago to the bishop of Rochester, ventured to say he could prove by the authority of Scripture that when God left this world he left no successor nor vicar. There is none that do not blame this usurpation, except those who have promoted it. The Chancellor (More) is so mortified at it that he is anxious above all things to resign his office. The bishop of Rochester is very ill with disappointment at it. He opposes it as much as he can; but, being threatened that he and his adherents should be thrown in the river, he was forced to consent to the King's will. And it may be taken for granted, since the prelates have not dared to stand out against it, and have thus destroyed the Pope's authority, that, being commanded to proceed in the Queen's affair, they will do what they are bid, especially considering the coolness shown by the Pope. There are many who dislike the affair, not out of zeal for the Church, but simply on account of the scandal, fearing that the Pope may declare the King schismatic, and deprive him of the kingdom, which is tributary to the Holy See; which, if it led to no worse evil, would finally set aside the title which the King pretends in France, and consequently put an end to his pensions and other debts.
Since the receipt of the said packet, the King has been at sport at the house of his Grand Esquire until late yesterday. This morning I was sent for to come to him about the affair of the Andalusian merchant, of which you wrote to me on the 31st ult., to which he made me a very good answer, and also to present to him letters from the King of the Romans, notifying his election. These he received without opening them in my presence, and he made no particular inquiry of me about the estate or affairs of the said King of the Romans, but merely asked in general what news I had. I replied that it was from him news might be expected; and he said that the army before Buda had withdrawn, not without loss, and that, speaking under correction, it had not been well considered in your Majesty or your brother, for greed of the kingdom of Hungary, to irritate such a dangerous beast as the Turk, and put the rest of Christendom in danger, at the very time the affairs of Germany were going worse than ever. Gives at considerable length his answer in vindication of the Emperor and Ferdinand. The King in his reply admitted that there was some force in his observations, but, speaking of violations of faith by the Turk, said they were not greater than what had been done in Florence. On which the writer was led to vindicate this also; when the King said that he did not care much about these affairs, as they did not concern himself, and that he wished other Princes also would not interfere with what did not concern them. He did not explain himself further, but spoke about his own case (with which he wished your Majesty not to interfere). I dissembled it as a matter of little consequence, saying that if one thing that he had said was true, about the Sophi having moved war against the Turk, it was the best time to attack him, and not to wait till he had defeated the Sophi. In these conversations about the Turk, he did not go so far as he did in disputing with the Queen, when, I am told, he said it was not a bad thing to make use of the Turk's aid against a tyrant.
On the second point the King said that the affairs of Germany were not so easy to settle as we supposed, and that he feared that on the Turk's approach a great many would go over to him. As to the Council, he wished it had begun already, provided it was held in a competent place. On asking him about the place, he suggested Avignon; and on my showing the reasons against Avignon and in favor of Milan, he said it was clear that Milan, next to Avignon, was the best place. He was of the opinion of some who said that if the Turk came the Council could not go on; but on my showing him reasons to the contrary, he admitted them.
As to the third point, he said that to complete the union of the Princes something more must be taken into consideration than resistance to the Turk.
I did not inquire what, because I knew well he meant to speak about his own affair. We had much other conversation, which I do not write. I did not speak with Norfolk, for he and all the nobles had gone to the Parliament. The Nuncio has been with the King today to speak about the office of collector in Ireland, of which the Pope has made provision. The King told him he would examine the bulls, and would do willingly what he could for his Holiness. The Nuncio then entered on the subject of this new papacy made here; to which the King replied that it was nothing, and was not intended to infringe the authority of the Pope, provided his Holiness would pay due regard to him, and otherwise he knew what to do. In the end the King complained to the Nuncio that the Pope had given certain "remissions par Espagne" to prove that prince Arthur's marriage was not consummated, and also that his Holiness had decreed a provision, which was placarded on all the thoroughfares of Flanders, as he was informed by letters of merchants. This complaint was put very mildly, and there was nothing but good words between them. London, 21 Feb.

113. The Abbot of Llor to the Comendador Coboz.
Has already sent an answer to his last letter. Gave it to the Ambassador, with another of the cardinal Egidio to the Emperor. The Ambassador asked me to give notice to the cardinal Trana of what I have already written about the English marriage. He asked this that we might know the objections, and the reasons of the Cardinal, and so he made them. It was necessary to my honor that I should reply to his objections; and so, with pardon of his red hat, he was conquered.
In these few days I have discovered that certain persons on behalf of the king of England have been tempting cardinal Egidio to absent himself from the Court, and go to Viterbo or further, so as not to have to give his vote. This was said to him to try his disposition, and he made a very good answer. It is true that I said to him that he should not think of going away during this business; to which he answered that he would not fail in his respect and service to the Emperor. I believe him, because he knows how much it would injure him if he did otherwise. Rome, 21 Feb. 1531.

114. Roger Wigston to Lord Darcy.
The King has informed Sir John Mordaunt and Roger Wigston, general surveyors of his woods, that he will grant the preferment of the sale of woods in the forest of Wakefield to lord Darcy, whom Wigston promises to send his deputy to view the woods immediately after the dissolution or prorogation of Parliament, and to conclude a bargain with Darcy before Easter term. 25 Feb. 22 Hen.

115. The Prothonotary Casale to Henry VIII.
Did not write by the courier who went through Flanders, being assured that scarcely anything could pass there in safety. But as there are seldom or never any regular posts into France, sends with these two opinions, one of which being obtained at Pavia, and confirmed by the greater part of the college divines, he got subscribed by the greater part of the doctors at Vicenza. This was the more difficult to obtain as the divines of Vicenza had formerly been alienated from the bishop of Vaison (Vasionensis), as the bishop of London knows. It was subscribed also by some Padua doctors. The other is by friar Gregory of Padua. It is hurriedly composed, but Casale believes he will write more fully if required; for, knowing him to be an able and learned man, he got him to live with him that he might instruct him about the whole case. Thinks his services also might be useful in some judgment, or if a General Council were held; for it will be important to have divines and lawyers won by gifts, and well instructed in the cause. Wrote to Guro (ad D. Goronem) on this subject many things which he trusts he has intimated to the King. Is anxious to have an answer that he may know what to do. Is doing his utmost, both by speaking and writing, to instruct everybody in this cause, that they may understand our laws. Has done this in all the cities of Milan, Turin, and even Illyrium, and has obtained a number of private subscriptions, which would make an enormous bundle to send to England, if the opinions to which they are attached went as well. Expects daily to get more. If any one wishes to get a better idea of the number of the signatures, he may do so by the means I have written to Dom. Guro. If the matter is to be treated in France or elsewhere, would be glad to be employed in it.
As to affairs in Italy, wrote lately to Norfolk that orders had come from the Emperor to restore the castle of Milan and Como to the Duke, if the latter would pay the money agreed on. The Duke has done so, and on the 15th inst. received the castle; but signor Lorenzo, whom the Emperor had put in charge of Como, refused to deliver it, as he had no evidence that the money was paid. The Siennese are in arms against Lopez de Soria, the governor appointed by the Emperor.
Has letters from Dom. Stephanus, who has great influence with the king of Hungary, which he has sent to Guro. It appears that after the siege of Buda was raised, in which the King had been shut up 50 days, truce was made for three months; of which king Ferdinand was the author. Venice, 25 Feb. 1531. Signed.

116. Muxetula to Charles V.
The king of Scotland has sent a secretary to the Pope to ask his niece in marriage. The king of France has written publicly in his favor, and ordered the duke of Albany to speak on his behalf; but the marriage your Majesty knows of is spoken of secretly. The Pope will give a general answer, because, as far as I can hear, he is much "puesto" (vexed?) at not having another marriage than that of the duke of Milan. Rome, 27 Feb. 1531.

118. A Letter From Rome.
Has received letters from Brussels of 2 and 3 Feb., with news of the Emperor's health, and of queen Mary's going to Ghent. Has letters from the king of the Romans of 28 Jan. Gives an account of interviews with the Pope and Gambara about the Turks, the Lutherans, and the Council. An excusator has appeared in the matrimonial cause saying that the case is difficult, that the King is not obliged to appear by proxy, and cannot come in person without danger to his person and state. I contradicted him, and it was necessary to discuss and inform the Rota and Consistory of one point after another, the English doing the same. Please God we shall gain it, because they cannot admit him unless he has power for the principal cause. They have endeavoured, by means of the Pope and the French king, to procure a suspension of the cause for two years; but I have undeceived them, and make all the haste I can in the cause. However, I have consulted the Emperor about it, because I know that the answer will be the same.
De Prato has left for Flanders.
There is news from France of the 26, 28, and 29 Jan. that the festival for the coronation of the queen of France had been delayed till 11 Feb. by reason of her illness, but she was now better; that a secretary or ambassador of the duke of Ferrara had asked the King for the pension of his son, Don Hercules, and the dowry of Madame Reinera;—at which the King was angry; but the Grand Master appeased him.
