This night has received, from Robert Maxwell, Hertford's letters dated Berwyk 20th inst., together with one from Robert Maxwell (enclosed, with copy of his reply). It is strange that now he makes all the West Wardenry of Scotland to be his father's cure and at his command when not long ago the earl of Arran's great friend, laird Johnston, was the Maxwells' deadly enemy, and Wharton has himself heard Robert Maxwell threaten to have him slain. Is informed that the message from Lord Maxwell by John Maxwell of Cowhill has "made this agreement." Carlisle, 26 May.

Received by bearer, this 26 May, two letters, from the Lord Lieutenant and from him, and will grant assurance from molestation by the west wardenry of England to all his father's servants' lands or tenants. Is content that two or three of his father's servants may pass to him with necessaries. Carlisle, 22 (sic) May.

26 May.587. Sir Thos. Palmer and Others to Petre.
R. O.Arrived here on the 26th with the treasure to pay the soldiers of Mons. de Bueren, Lightmaker and Landenbergh, having from Bruges sent Thomas Chamberleine in post to Bruxelles, to hear of Bueren and "to find there instruxion frome Mr. Wutton of th'Emperour's interteynement and sould to souldiours on horsebacke," without which they will proceed with Bueren conditionally, who has always shown himself rather to serve the King for affection than for interest. At Bruxelles Chamberlein found Bueren's servant with a letter declaring his being at Grave near Boisleduc on the 22nd inst., to "give the musters," having the footmen ready but the horsemen not all arrived. Chamberleine wrote thereupon that they were coming as shortly as the distance and carriage of the treasure permitted, but received, at his arrival here, another letter from Bueren, dated Boisleduc 25th inst., requiring them to make diligence. Enclose Bueren's letters. As the ways between this and Boisleduc are said "to be dangerous of snaphances," they have given knowledge to Bueren to send men for their safeguard and will use due caution. Enclose also a letter from Bueren to the King's Council about the 500 horsemen more. Andwarpe, 26 May 1544. Signed: Thomas Pallmer: Edward Vaughan: R. Fane: T. Chamberlein: Rechard Wyndebank.

Thanks him for his accomplishment of the charge committed to him in Scotland, and requires him to give Henry's thanks to those whose courage and manliness he has (like a good captain) in his letters commended, viz.:—the earl of Shrewesbury, Viscount Lisle and all others who were with him in this journey.

The King has presently despatched John Henry, Scottishman, and Wylson, who were lately sent to him from the master of Rothes and others in Scotland, and has appointed Mr. Hollcroft and John Rogers to pass with them into Scotland, with the instructions sent herewith. As it would be hard for them to pass surely by land, Hertford shall secretly furnish a vessel to transport them to the mouth of the river Tay, and shall send for Holcroft if absent. The King, understanding that. Captain Bordwyk did good service in this voyage, desires him sent hither. The King would know what preparations are made in Scotland, and how this voyage of his army there is taken, and desires Hertford to send to the lords wardens to get intelligence.

27 May.590. Chapuys to the Queen of Hungary.
R. O.
[Spanish
Calendar,
vii. 110.]
Received, the day before yesterday, her letters of the 21st inst., the contents of which were today communicated to this Council, who took marvellously well her rejoicing at and publishing the King's success in Scotland, as also her writing that she would not answer the letters of the Admiral of France without first advertising the King, whom they would move to use corresponding courtesy in any like case. As to Octavian, the Milanese, they would today carefully examine him, by torture if necessary; and, as to sending him thither to be confronted with La Chapelle, they would speak to the King. Touching the delay of the ships for their passage they are very displeased, and greatly blame their commissioners; nevertheless it seems that they do not acquit the Queen's ministers of blame or negligence who (the affair being as important to the Emperor as the King) ought to have remedied the negligence of their people. And they pray her to cause the most extreme haste to be made in the sending of the ships and all the rest concerning the wagons, complaining marvellously of the delay, because for some days past the King's men of war are being paid as if they were in the field. The Council beg her to hasten the ships of war, for the assurance of the passage, and also because of news that the king of France has 40 ships in Normandy rigged and ready to sail. Nothing has been said, except in general, touching the respect due between the armies by sea of the Emperor and this King; but, having received the letter mentioned in hers and some private advertisement from Mons. de Beurez, he will see to getting some good order taken.
Some time ago Chapuys delivered to the judge of the Admiralty the patents upon the observation of the safe-conducts, to be translated into English and put in authentic form, because the English mariners understand (or at least so pretend) no language but their own and esteem no transumpt not made by the said Court of Admiralty; and, owing to the absence of the judge, who has been out of town for three weeks, he could not obtain the patents sooner. Sends them, with one of the transumpts in English of which he has caused several to be made, which will be finished in two days. Begs excuse for not sending the said patents sooner. Sends copy of a letter which he has handled and which is to the bailiff of Guysnes from Sainct Martin, although the original has no subscription. (fn. 1) It shows that the French do not sleep in the matter of practises, and have not forgotten their old tricks. London, 27 May 1544.
At closing this the Council have sent, praying him to solicit her to hasten their said ships and have their horses and wagons at Calais on the 15th of next month.

27 May.591. Chapuys to Granvelle.
R. O.
[Spanish
Calendar,
vii. 111.]
By the copy herewith Granvelle will see the few occurrents here. Can only add that it appears that these men, for want of the ships from Flanders, will not cross so soon as they promised or as they are needed. The favour which this King has from the beginning shown the Duke of Alburquerque goes on increasing. The other day, when he returned from the country, the King lodged him beside the Court and had him met by the Earl of Sorey and Mr. Kenevet with a large company. He has since been divers times at Court, where the King made him the very best cheer (and the Queen still greater), and, four days ago, sent to pray him (the Duke) when at leisure, to attend the Council with his other ministers, who would communicate all things to him. Although the Duke thought that this would be honorable for himself and might be serviceable to the Emperor he would not go until he had communicated with Chapuys. Yesterday, by Chapuys' advice, he went; and the Council made to him the complaints, contained in the copy, touching the delay of the ships and prayed him to get Chapuys to solicit the hastening of them. He has also been sometimes invited to banquet with the Council, to show himself of the household (domestique); which he has decided to do at Chapuys' advice. Thinks Granvelle will be pleased, both for the amity he bears to the Duke and for the Emperor's service. London, 27 May 1544.

Enclose letters received this morning from Wharton to Hertford and from Drunlaneryk and one Lyndesey to Wharton, showing what conflict has been between Arren and Lenoux and other occurrents in Scotland. That the cost of the garrisons shall not be unfruitfully employed, Hertford has, with the wardens of the East and Middle Marches, devised a warden raid to Jedworthe as soon as the horses (wearied with the late journey in Scotland) are rested, which shall be in 12 days. Trust to win the town and abbey, and so abate the courage of the Marshe and, Tyvydale, whose principal relief was there. Desire to know whether to garrison it, if found tenable without a main army, or to proceed to its utter burning and devastation. Whereas George Douglas desires assurance for his friends, because the horses of the garrisons are wearied, and Maxwell has written to Angus to come into England, the said assurance might be given until it is seen whether Angus will come and the raid to Jedworthe is accomplished; and afterwards not continued unless George Douglas and his friends give hostages to become Henry's subjects. Sundry of the best surnames of the Marsshe and Tyvydale, when Hertford was at Berwick, sought to become Henry's subjects but have been dissuaded by George Douglas. Such as have been assured as his friends have taken their advantage when they saw time. Yesternight Hertford broke with Maxwell for his repair to Henry, telling him that his advice would be had touching Scottish matters. He seemed marvellously perplexed (as one having an evil conscience) and has since been in hand with Hertford six or seven times about his repair to Henry, and to have letters in his favour, saying that he fears that he has been misreported. On Monday next he takes his journey, being unable to go sooner for want of horse, servant, money and apparel. Newcastle, 27 May. Signed by Hertford, Tunstall, Holgate and Sadler.

The King has received his of 25 May and commands them to signify that as to Geo. Douglas his Majesty's pleasure is that as, "beside his former more than suspicious proceedings, it doth appear by continuance of the same that his sayings doth far differ and disagree from his doings," and he is to have no such assurance as he requires, but to be ordered, he and his friends, as the King's enemies. Their late letters for stay of the 100 horsemen on the West Marches were not meant to stay them long but only to prevent their coming to Dover too soon. As the King takes in good part the coming forward of the rest, so he will have the said 100 sent forth incontinently. Finally, where Wharton, in his letters desires to know how to order the bp. of Catnes, now hostage for Lynoux, they pray him to signify to Wharton that the Bishop is to repair hither to Court. Westminster, 28 May 1544. Signed by Chancellor Wriothesley, Norfolk, Suffolk, Russell, Essex, Lisle, Winchester, Gage, Browne and Petre.

This morning Hertford has advertisement from Sir George Douglas that the Cardinal intends this week to steal into France in a little boat of 20 tons. He may cause it to be trimmed like an Englishman. Here are two ships appointed to waft the ships with the victuals and coals for Calais, which shall be ordered to have a vigilant eye for the Cardinal. George Douglas desires to know what service he can do. Newcastle, 28 May.

Perceives by his son, warden of the Middle Marches, that the King and Hertford would have Gedwourthe burnt by the East and Middle Marches. Thinks 5,000 or 6,000 men necessary to burn it; for last time it was burnt there were 7,000 or 8,000. Through the journey of Edenburghe many horses in the East Marches are decayed, 40 horses of John Carr's garrison were lost when he was hurt, and some of Robert Horseley's company are taken by the Scots. Sent also 100 of the best horsemen to Hertford at Newcastle, and Sir Robt. Constable is discharged and gone with his 100. Will, nevertheless, send all the horsemen under his rule to his son Sir Ralph, 1,200 at the most. Berwyke, 29 May.

29 May.598. Layton to the Council.
R. O.Concerning Broke's proceedings "for setting forwards of the hoys and playtes," wrote to Secretary Peter, enclosing Broke's letter. Broke has "prest" the full number of 300 and thinks most of them are already at Dover, Sandwiche, Temmes mouth and elsewhere. The residue were stayed for fear of Frenchmen reported to lie in wait for them; whereupon Layton obtained the Queen's letters to her Admiral and coast officers in Hollande and Zelande for their safe-conduct, and supposes them now on their way. The Queen condescended to 2,000 wagons and 2,400 lymoners; which are ready, and only stay because no one is here to pay their conduct money and assign day and place for their march. Is daily cried upon by the Queen's commissioners and the wagonners; for it is chargeable to them to remain at their own cost. Begs that a treasurer may be sent with all diligence to pay conduct money, &c. Laid out all his money in defraying the commissioners that went to prest them. The Queen has appointed captains of 25, 50 and 100 of them, who look for pay before they set forth. Gowre and his fellows, who went only to prest the wagons and lymoners, have done their duty. Proclamation is made here that no victuals be carried out of these parts without special licence; which is done, as the Queen sends him word, in order that the King may be better served, for under colour of victualling his army much would be conveyed out that should neither come to his use nor the Emperor's. Bruxells, 29 May 1544. Signed.

29 May.599. John Broke to the Council.
R. O.As they commanded, has prested, before the 16th inst., fully 200 "hoyes and playtes," and by the 20th 100 more; he and the governors of the towns commanding them, as prested, to depart to places assigned them; as appears by his letters which he sent to my lord Ambassador, because he himself "from Amsterdam must resort into Zeland." Learns here that, of those ships which he appointed to Ipsewhich and other places, the officers of the King's "transportations" at Dover take some, whereby Ipsewhich and the other places may lack their numbers; and because he cannot yet come himself, he thinks it his duty to advertise their Lordships of this.

You shall proceed to Maestricht and there, in virtue of our letters of credence, require the escoutette to accompany you. As soon as you have arrived at Aix, or elsewhere, and have found the Commissary of the King of England sent there to take the musters, and also Messire Christoffle de Landenberg or his lieutenant, you shall, in virtue of our letters of credence for each of them, say that we have sent you to guide them by the most direct way and get them victuals and lodging at reasonable price, just as if they were in the Emperor's service; and you shall enquire when they will march and notify us forthwith. Meanwhile, you shall cause your placard for the obtaining of victuals to be executed, so as to have them ready by the way, which shall be straight towards the Meuze to find "la Chaulcee" and pass through Haynault to the town of Ayre, about which the King of England is resolved to assemble his army. We have written to the chapter of Liege to give lodging and victuals to the said men of war at your suit. You two, or one of you, shall remain with the said commissary and captains and see how they behave, especially towards the Emperor's subjects about Aix; and if you find the said subjects too much oppressed and eaten up by them you shall gently remonstrate with the said commissary and chief, telling them that, being well paid, they ought not to do such outrages, and requiring them to provide therein so that she may have occasion to praise them to the Emperor and the King of England. You shall get them to march all together and by the same way, and not to illtreat the victuallers. One of you shall always be with the said commissary and chief, having, however, some archers among the men of war to advertise you of their conduct. Before leaving Aix you shall advertise us by another messenger of what has passed; and send us the gestes (gistes) that you will take, day by day, as far as the said "Chaulcee," so that we may then advertise you more fully what way to take. Brussels, 29 May 1544.

Has communed with his father of the enterprise for the burning of Jedworthe. Many doubts have been cast that without a greater number it cannot be done; but, if he may have 500 horsemen out of the Bishopric, to be on Sunday come se'nnight at Alnwike, he will undertake to burn it upon the Tuesday morning following. Begs him to command Wharton to send 500 of his best horsemen to Chipchace on Sunday come se'nnight, "not letting him know to what place we go to." Hertford has won as much honor in annoying the King's enemies as ever did lieutenant in the North parts, and this enterprise shall increase it. Warkworthe, 30 May.
As commanded, has discharged 100 of the garrisons, including 50 of Mr. Yenglebis. Begs that at next pay day "we may have month wages," for the poor men who lost horses in Scotland have been at great charge in buying others.

The King, having received his letters of the 27th and 28th inst., likes his device, in that of the 27th, for a warden raid to Jedworth, and agrees that, if the town and abbey (when won), seem tenable, men may be left to keep them for his Highness. The order to be taken therein and the consideration what may be done to Hume Castle, which the King thinks important, is left to Hertford and the wardens. Where Sir George Duglas has written for assurance of his friends, with offer to serve as the King shall appoint, apparently intending to strengthen himself rather than advance the King's affairs, remembering such other advertisements as have come touching him, unless he give good hostages for his friends they are to have no assurance; but, as the horses upon the Borders are not yet recovered, Hertford shall devise to entertain him until an exploit can be made. If he give sufficient hostages that his friends shall neither invade nor assist others to invade, nor resist the King's subjects invading the Scots, Hertford may grant an assurance; and if not, proceed to their devastation.
Where Wharton would know how to use Lynoux, if he land in the West Marches; he is to be gently entertained and conducted hither to Court. And where Glencarn makes suit for a gelding, Wharton may send him one. It were well, considering Sir George Duglas's large offers of service, that he were required to join earnestly with Lynoux and Glenkern against the Governor, and also to assist attempts for the annoyance of the enemy.

31 May.603. Chapuys to the Queen of Hungary.
R. O.
[Spanish
Calendar,
vii. 113.]
This Council sent him word, the day before yesterday, that the King had ordered Octavian Bos to be carefully examined, and also racked, to know if he had accomplices here; and, that done, he should be returned to Chapuys to be sent to the Queen of Hungary. Begs instructions. The Council likewise sent word that they were advertised by Secretary Paget of the pains she had taken to furnish their ships, horses and wagons, with which the King was marvellously gratified, and also pleased with her approval of his answer to the French king's letters. Of these letters Chapuys wrote at length on the 18th, because Paget said he had no charge to show them to her. Knows not whether he afterwards procured charge, having seen the minute of what Chapuys wrote, which he begged to see, principally, for what concerned the excuse of the King's going in person in the enterprise against France (in which article Chapuys ventured to write a little boldly, at the said Secretary's intercession and to gratify the company).
Has today received hers, of the 21st inst., concerning the patents for Mons. de Beures, which the Council have agreed to if they may have the like. On obtaining them will send some to her and some to De Beures.
Was about to close this when he received hers of the 25th with the summary of her colloquy with Paget. Thinks her answers and doings perfect, both public and private, and will conform to these answers if those here resume the subject. As to the finances which she hears that they wish to make there, will do his best to turn them from it. Certainly it would be very inconvenient to the Emperor, "et mesmes quilz ont justement et a poinct quatre patars de Flandres, haulceant pareillement a l'advenant la valuation du royal et demy angellot, par lequel moyen se tirera de Flandres une infinie quantité des angellotz et aussi desd. pieces, et desja en est venu grant nombre."
The King's army returning from Scotland did not stop before any strong castle, not even before that of Miels, which they had thought of taking and keeping; and that because their drink began to fail. Believes that the Secretary will have told her how Lith and the neighbouring castle, (fn. 2) which was in the water, were not kept, because to fortify them would require time and the presence meanwhile of a very great army, and could not be done because of the approaching enterprise against France. The retaining of the said two places would have been á propos for the assurance of the fishing, which, however, he believes, the Scots will not disturb for this year, as most of their ships have been taken or burnt by the English. Moreover there is appearance that affairs of Scotland will go more and more in the King's favour, who is informed (as the Council have just signified) that the earls of Lynus and Glancarne who hold for him have had a fierce encounter with the Governor and his men, of whom several are slain, including a brother of the Governor, an esquire and a secretary, and other of his favourites. (fn. 3) The Cardinal is astounded by this, and because the five ships of which Chapuys before wrote have arrived at the place (fn. 4) where he kept his plate and best furniture, and all has been sacked by the English. Finding himself in such perplexity, the Cardinal was reckoning to pass into France, secretly, upon a little vessel armed and rigged in English fashion; and the King desires her to order the men of war at sea to keep good watch to hinder the passage of the said ship. These news seem scarcely less important than those of the army's exploit.
The Council pray her most earnestly to send a person of authority to the havens where the hoys are that are needed for the passage, to make them put to sea even though the wind does not quite serve, else they may wait too long. Once at sea, as the weather is not stormy, they will always be able to get forward with the tide and by tacking when they have room. London, 31 May 1544.

After his other letters were closed, the Council sent him word that they had communicated with the King about the finances which he wishes to make there, who finds it a little strange that difficulty is made about them. He does not intend to make them until after the Emperor is provided; and he was constrained to it, especially, by his being bound to pay the men of Flanders (de pardela) in Flemish money, and what he wished to take was a small sum compared with what he would leave in the hands of the peasants and men of Flanders; and the King of Portugal was not forbidden to make daily in Antwerp a far greater sum (the Council not considering that the money of the finances which the factor of Portugal made scarcely went out of Antwerp). The Council also cannot find it good that their merchants are made to swear at Antwerp, and will not be satisfied with the representations made to them. And when all is said, Madame, it can only be said that they want everything exactly their own way.

This Whitsun Eve received a letter from Robert Maxwell, with another unsealed to his (Maxwell's) father, by Jok Dowglas, lord Maxwell's servant. As commanded by Hertford's letters of the 26th inst. sends him Dowglas, and a Scottishman on foot with him, in charge of Robt. Hodshon, one of the writer's warden-serjeants. Has also received a letter (enclosed) from Sir George Douglas, and asks what to answer both to Robert Maxwell and him. One Robert Grame called Gares has been in Scotland by your command, as he says, and now asks "if I would anything to your Lordship." He is servant to lord Dacres and served his father.

31 May.606. The Queen of Hungary to Chapuys.
R. O.
[Spanish
Calendar,
vii. 115.]
Since the receipt of his letters of the 22nd inst., it is published here that the King of England's men have captured all the chief persons of Scotland, especially (it is written from Antwerp) the Queen widow, her daughter and the Cardinal of Scotland. Chapuys's letters of the 27th do not mention this, and she much desires to know if it is true. Had news yesterday from the camp before Lutzembourg that those within the town had accorded with the Viceroy of Sicily to surrender on 6 June if not meanwhile succoured by the French king—they to depart with arms and baggage, leaving two of their four ensigns behind. The Viceroy is to send copy of the said capitulation, which she will forward to Chapuys. Has also news from Spers that the treaty is made between the Emperor and the Duke of Holstein. As soon as she receives the copy of the capitulation she will advertise Chapuys, that he may inform the King. Hopes that the assembly in the East country (du coste doost) will now cease; but Chapuys shall thank the King for his advertisement of it. As to Octavian Bos, Milanese, he has confessed treason, having promised information to the enemy; and La Chapelle says that Bos went to England in order to write occurrents there to him, to be sent into France. Chapuys shall get him well examined of his accomplices, and especially upon le blanc signe which he should have delivered to the Sieur de Vendosme. If the English wish to send him hither, they may be sure that he will be examined no less curiously of things touching the King and his realm than concerning these countries.
As to the passenger ships, with the delay of which the Council there wish partly to blame the ministers here; she wrote on the 21st what she had done therein; and, because it appears, by Chapuys' letters of the 27th, that those there would soon throw the blame upon those here, she wishes more amply to advertise him of the diligence made both in regard to passenger ships and wagons, for, as he knows, she heretofore wrote to him to have early notice when the King's army should pass, so that she might provide ships, wagons and victuals, but she could never get absolute answer until now, when he writes that the wagons are to be ready on 15 June. As soon as the King's commissioners arrived everything was done for arresting ships and constraining them to serve at reasonable price; and the commissioners were despatched the same day and an assistant delivered to them, whom they sent back on the morrow. Was not advertised of what they had done until the 24th inst., when they sent word that the ships retained by them in Holland dared not leave their havens because of certain French ships of war; and she immediately despatched to the Admiral and the governor of Zeelande to send certain ships of war which were ready to drive off the said French ships. Has had no other notice from the commissioners, and knows not what ships they have retained, except that those of Antwerp have complained that they (the commissioners) had arrested many ships without saying whether they would serve or not, and those of Romerswale have complained that they have arrested all their ships; but she refused to grant anything in prejudice of the arrest. And since they ask no other assistance, and have sent back those whom she ordered to assist them, they must either be insufficiently instructed or do not duly observe their instruction. Likewise with regard to the wagons, as soon as the commissioners arrived from Antwerp to enquire what wagons they could obtain for the King's service, the list (description) was delivered to them, that they might go and see if it was correct and whether the horses and wagons were ready. They did their duty, and she has daily complaints that these are kept so long ready without payment or prest that, without other provision, several will have to be sold to pay for their food. Her commissioners communicated to the Ambassador here resident the order which should be kept for levying wagons, and that it was needful to have someone charged to pay them if they were to march, for it would be impossible for the poor men to feed their horses by the way without money. The Ambassador wrote of this to the Council there, but if he had any answer her commissioners have heard nothing of it. Also the commissioners of victuals communicated to him the order for getting victuals here, and he said that he had written into England about it; but as yet he has said nothing to the commissioners of victuals. Chapuys should therefore let the King's Council know that she has been no less diligent to assist the King's army, both ships and wagons, than the Emperor's, but she finds it strange that, if their commissioners were negligent (who perhaps were unfit for their charge), it should be imputed to her or her ministers, seeing that she has no authority over their commissioners. It ought to suffice that she assists them in all they desire, as hitherto she has done more than she would do for the Emperor's men, whom she would have corrected (remis a la raison). The Ambassador's brother (fn. 5) (who during his illness solicits affairs), being sent for, has just declared to her that he thinks that the ships of this country are arrived in England, and that he has yet no answer from England about the wagons and victuals, but expects it hourly. If those there wish to blame others, they ought to consider that they leave here a man sick to death, who cannot negociate, and, even if he were in health, is not qualified to treat affairs of war; also that those whom they send are so slenderly instructed that if another kind of diligence were not made here they would be ill served.
Has presently received letters from the Emperor, who will make no resolution upon the letter which the Admiral of France sent her until he knows the King of England's advice. Sends him an extract of Chapuys's letters of the 17th inst.; and until she hears from his Majesty again, and has advertised Chapuys, she will not answer the Admiral; as Chapuys may advertise the King. Sends the Emperor the copy of the letters of the Sieur de St. Martin which fell into Chapuys's hands; and has received the King's letters patent for the safe-conducts.

May.607. The Privy Council to Francis Hall.
R. O.The King having sent into Flanders for provision of wagonners and lymonars for the wars lately had answer that many were ready, waiting only to know the time and place for their employment. Considering his experience in these and other things touching the wars, he is assigned to ride, to Bruxelles or elsewhere, to the Ambassador, from whom and from "Gower, a merchant at Antwarpe, and such other as were lately appointed for that purpose," he shall learn what are already provided and what wages shall be paid. He shall then muster them, foreseeing that the wagons are large enough and furnished with good wheels and strong horses or mares, give prest to 500 wagons and 1,100 lymonars for the foreward and rearward of the army, and appoint them to march forward and be at Calais by the 12th of next month. To spare the grass and hay in the Pale until the army is transported, they shall stay about Graveling, ready to come to Calais by the said day. Having seen this number furnished, he shall speak to those charged with providing them for 600 wagons more and 800 lymonars to serve against such time as the battle shall be transported, the time whereof shall be signified upon receipt of his report of their readiness. At the coming over of Sir John Wallopp he shall receive 2,000 mks. for payment of the said prest; and, whereas the Regent of Flanders heretofore intimated that "in case the wagoners should receive their prest for any great number of days beforehand they would consume the same in excessive drinking, and so be less able to do service," he should deliver no more than twelve days' prest aforehand. For his own diets he shall take 13s. 4d. a day during his absence from Calais.

609. France and the Venetians.
Granvelle,
Papiersd'
Etat, iii. 1.
Speech of the French ambassador to the Signory of Venice, in which, in reply to the shameless allegations of the Imperialists, he cites the dealings of the Emperor and king of Romans with the Turk ten years ago, and states that the king of Romans secretly sought to hinder the Signory's last peace with the Turk, and that the being of the Turkish armada in French ports for some months does not make the French enemies of the Faith (giving many instances in sacred and profane history in which the aid of idolaters and infidels has been accepted). What harm does the being of the Turkish armada in French ports do to Christendom? Whenever the Doge (la serenita vostra) grants passage to Imperial soldiers through the Dominion complaints arrive of their outrages; and a few months ago, the Germans at Carignano who went "per far la honorata pasqua" vented their spleen against the Church by mutilating the crucifixes and statues of the saints. To the presence of Captain Polin, the King's ambassador, must be ascribed the fact that this powerful Turkish armada has passed through the midst of the Italian islands, stopped in the country of the Church, and coasted along Sienna and Genoa without doing any hurt whatever, but paying for everything that was taken. Its coming has been more useful than harmful to Christendom. It is retained by the French king solely for the defence of his realm, which the Emperor has always sought openly and secretly to ruin, although his ministers now pretend that he wishes to ruin it in order to dissolve the friendship between the King and the Turk. What religion moved the Emperor, joined with the King of England, to assault France, in the year '21? Or to join with Pope Leo to take Milan from us, which belonged to my King's sons? Or seek to get my King treacherously assassinated by Bourbon? Or to assail France seven years ago? Or what Gospel can justify the conjunction of the Emperor with the King of England, who is, through the Emperor's counsel and instigation, a schismatic, heretic and rebel of the Faith? Which conjunction can only be baptised as a wicked conspiracy for the partition of a Christian realm. What charity induced the Emperor to embrace and conspire with the princes of Germany, who for twenty years have been adjudged heretics? What but the design of subjugating Christendom could make a revengeful prince like the Emperor forget the insult done him by the King of England, in the person of his aunt? Compares them to Herod and Pilate becoming friends against Christ; and instances the forgiving nature of the French king. Points out how the Germans and English and Spaniards will seek the destruction of religion, and (at great length) how in former times the French have signalised themselves in its defence.
Concludes by begging the Doge to consider the misery of Italy and of all Christendom, and, before taking any resolution, to hear again what the Cardinal of Ferrara will say on behalf of the French king; and to recognise how the House of Austria has been the enemy of this Signory and France its ancient friend, with whom it has no quarrel.
