Title: A memorial of things necessary for the transporting of the King - Field of Cloth of Gold.
A memorial of things necessary for the transporting of the King for the interview between him, the French king, their queens, queen Mary dowager of France, and the mother of the French king.
The King, with the Queen and the Queen Dowager of France, shall be at Guisnes Castle on the last of May, and within four days after shall meet the French king within the county of Guisnes, as determined by the treaty. The commissioners for appointing the time and place of meeting to be the lord Chamberlain, earl of Worcester, Sir Nic. Vauxe, Sir Wm. Sandes and Sir Edw. Belknap. The King's apparel is to be ordered according to his own pleasure and device. Vauxe, Sandes and Belknap to be commissioners to visit Guisnes Castle and the neighbourhood, and prepare lodgings according to instructions delivered to them at their departure. The Chamberlain, Vauxe, Sandes and Belknap are to meet the French commissioners, and appoint a place for the jousts halfway between Guisnes and Arde, and to provide for its fortification, and for the construction of lists, galleries, &c. The Chamberlain and the ministers of the wardrobe to provide for the transportation to Calais of Arras tapestry and other necessaries for the decoration of the King's house, and to cross the sea forty days before the interview, that all may be ready. The head officers of the household to be warned by the council to attend on the King "in their best manner, ap- parelled according to their estates and degrees." The other officers and ministers to be furnished with all things necessary. The lord Chamberlain and Vice-chamberlains are to prepare themselves, and to appoint the officers for the chamber, making a book of their names. The Dean and ministers of the chapel are to cross the sea with the King. The Dean is to warn the ministers, and provide books, jewels, vestments, &c. for the chapel. The rich copes with the vestments given to the monastery of Westminster by the late King are to be borrowed for this voyage, and afterwards returned. The clerk of the closet is to warn ten chaplains to accompany the King, and provide the closet with the best hangings, travers, jewels, images, altar cloths, &c. that the King has. The King's guard is to consist of 200 of the "tallest and most elect persons," with doublets, hosen and caps. Each man is to have two coats, one of goldsmith's work with the King's cognizance; the base to be scarlet, and the nether part to have a guard of cloth of gold. The other coat to be red, with a rose on the breast, and the crown imperial, "after such form and manner as the riding coats be now." They are to be armed with bows and arrows. Sir Henry Marney is to warn and furnish them, and to see that 100 provide themselves with fit and able horses. As Guisnes Castle possesses no place or houses of office where the King's ordinary household can be kept in one place, tables with numbers of messes are to be assigned to the officers of the household, to which the nobles and others may resort. The provision of victuals is assigned to the cofferer, Mykelow, Bryks and others. Sir Edw. Ponynges, warden of the Cinque Ports, is to provide sufficient ships and hoys; Miles Gerard and Thos. Partrige, 40 great howeys. The Mary Rose, the King's Greate Barke, the Little Barke, and two other small ships are to scour the seas from time to time during the passage; their rigging and victualling are committed to Sir Wm. Fitzwilliam, Sir Wistan Browne and John Hopton, clerk of the King's ships; Sir John Daunce to issue money for the purpose. Gerard and Partrige will appoint the shipping for all the nobles, and a book containing all the names shall be delivered to them, and also to the harbingers appointed to provide lodging at Dover, Calais and Guisnes. A copy of this book is to be sent to the council, that billets may be made and sent to every person.
The commissioners to appoint the lodgings at Calais, are Sir John Peche, the marshal, Sir Ric. Carewe, Wotton and Garnishe; for Guisnes, Sir Wm. Sandes, Sir Nic. Vauxe and Sir Edw. Belknap; and the King's harbingers are to attend on both. The earl of Essex (fn. 1) is appointed chief marshal, Sir Wm. Parre, undermarshal, and Marlond, provost, to keep order among the train, punish malefactors, &c. It was agreed in the treaty that two noblemen should be appointed by the two kings to make "good geite espie and watch" in all suspect places where ambushes might lie towards Flanders, France, Picardy or Arthois. On the King's part, Sir Griffith Rice (fn. 2) is assigned as chief, and with him (fn. 3) Sir Ric. Tempest (fn. 4) and Sir Wm. Bulmar, with 100 light horse, in the King's wages. They are to report to the King every morning. Espials and counterespials will also be made by the council from time to time.
A solemn banquet will be held at Guisnes, at which the French King and all his court will be present. The charge of it is committed to the officers of the household, and the arrangement and furnishing of the place to Vaux, Sands, Belknap and Ric. Gibson. For the banquet a mummery will be prepared, consisting of 50 noble men and women in 5 companies. Their apparel is referred to the King's pleasure. Sir Harry Wyat is charged to transport gold and silver plate sufficient for the banquet. A person will be appointed by the King to provide hobbies, palfreys, hounds, greyhounds, horns, leashes, collars and other things for presents. The apparel of the henchmen, the horses and the stable furniture to be referred to the King. If it is thought necessary to take ordnance, the charge thereof will be entrusted to Sir Wm. Skevington, master of the ordnance. There being no place within the castle of Guisnes for the lodging of the servants and guard, Gibson will take across the King's halls, tents and pavilions, and a place for them shall be assigned by Sandes and the other commissioners. Princes' ambassadors shall not be restrained to any number of men or horses under 100. As it is agreed between the Kings not to bring a greater number of attendants than is mentioned in a bill interchangeably delivered and subscribed with their hands, here follow the names of those appointed to attend upon the King and Queen, with the number of their servants and horses, and letters are to be sent to them, on the King's behalf, by the secretary and the master of the posts.
R. O. 2. The King's apparel to be remitted to his own pleasure. The lord Chamberlain to arrange for the garnishing of the King's house and the carriage of apparel to Calais by the officers of the Wardrobe. The Chamberlain to go to Calais a month before the meeting, which is fixed for 15 July next, in such place as shall be appointed by the earl of Worcester and the French commissioners. The King and Queen to be lodged in the Exchequer. The house of the Staple is to be furnished for the lodging of the French king, his queen, mother and sister. The deputy and treasurer of Calais to appoint lodgings for the lords attending on the King, make books of the said lodgings, and send them to the council, that every man may know his place. Sir Henry Wyat is charged to take over sufficient plate for furnishing the King's house and the French king's lodging. All the head officers of the Household are to be warned to prepare themselves, and all other officers are to be furnished with everything necessary to give their attendance. The lord Chamberlain and Vice-chamberlain are to be ready in like manner, and are to make a book of the officers for the Chamber, whom they shall appoint. The Dean and ministers of the chapel are to be warned to be ready. 400 elect persons shall be appointed for the guard, with doublets, hose and caps of one suit, double coats, bows, arrows and halberds. 100 of them are to have horses, and Sir Henry Marney is to appoint and view them.

After the number of nobles who will come with the French king has been notified to the deputy of Calais and the other commissioners, they shall appoint them lodgings; and all the King's subjects, except those ordered to remain, shall remove to the Brayes, and lodge there in tents while the French king and his train are in Calais.
The French king and queen's lodging is appointed at the Staple House, and the lord Chamberlain and other officers are to repair to Calais to furnish the house, and provide wine and other necessaries, and to appoint masters of hostels and other officers to furnish daily provision. For his train, staples must be made in sundry places for wine, bread, &c., to which the masters of hostels assigned to the Frenchmen's lodgings may send their billets for daily provision. The King and his whole train are to be entertained wholly at Henry's cost.
The king of England and his Queen will lodge in the Exchequer. A large hall must be made of slight timber; and also two chambers, one joining the Queen's lodging, for the ladies to dance in; the other joining the King's lodging, for his attendants. The household will be kept as at solemn feasts.

No lodgings are to be appointed in the castle, and a "salle" is to be devised and made in most gorgeous manner to keep the great banquet in. The chapel, great chamber and parlor are to be furnished as withdrawing places.

Hobbies, palfreys, hounds, greyhounds, horns, leashes and collars must be provided as gifts.
It is thought that Sandyngfeld will be a suitable place for the first meeting, being neutral, as the treaty requires, and having been viewed by the lord Chamberlain and the captain of Boulogne.
It is thought convenient, if it so please the princes, that the first meeting should be on horseback, and that after the kings and queens have embraced, they and their trains shall repair to Calais, the King giving the French king the right hand, and the queens doing the like. Pre-eminence is to be given to all the French retinue, and a "plat" to be made how all the personages shall be placed. After the kings have embraced they will salute each other's queens, and introduce them to each other. All noblemen and others are to be apparelled according to their degrees, and no man must presume to wear apparel above his degree.
