Example text

Artillery were reported to havesailed from Dieppe and Treport, under Guise's own eye. Of this last step the English Government was speedily informed; and in a dispatch dated June 7 Walsingham directs Cobham to complain of it to the king. Some of the powder was even said to have come out of the royal stores. The shipment of ' munition' to Scotland was a form of trade that must be looked on with suspicion. No mystery seems to have been made over the matter; Herle at Antwerp knew all about it. June 13 Cobham seems to have awakened to the suspicion that Guise's operations, which, as has been seen, were not secret, pointed to the fact that some practice was being 'trained' in Scotland, On July 5, being with the king, he brought up the matter of the powder, and reeeiyed answer that, as was possibly true, the king knew nothing about it.

Paris, 1 May. 1582. Add. in Italian. May 3. 4. Lat. 1 p. {Ibid, VII. ] COBHAM to WALSINGH£M. Since my last the king is gone to Fontainebleau, there to remain th his Court. O On tthe Trith e 228th ult. he received there the qqueen his mother with his sister the Queen of Navarre, meeting them on i th horseback more than half a league from his house with but a small train. After the kindly and princely receiving of one another, they entered into one coach, and the Queen of Havarre after shehad 'accomplished her own dutiful manner' to the king at the first meeting, offered then to reach at his hand to kiss it on behalf Q* her husband.

He went, it would seem, with similar credentials; how far his instructions were the same does not appear. So far as those he had from the king, in regard to Scotland at any rate* were concerned, there was probably little difference; a remark of Pinart's, in conversation with Cobham, seems to imply as much. But all the evidence goes to show that he was primarily the Guises' envoy; and it is clear that the king dispatched him with reluctance. He was to go by seaj but it was some time before he got off.
