Henry VII,the Reign
25 Sept 
437. Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk to Nicholas St. Martyne.
I think the King's payment is respited till November. I have written to Sir John Wallop to speak to the Great Master that I may have the arrears due to me at May last; trusting that the French king and his council will not stop my dues, if the King forbear his.
If Sir John Wallop cannot obtain this from the Grand Master he is to speak with the King, and advertise you of the result. The king (of England) intends to send one of his Council shortly to Francis.
When he arrives in Paris, you are to declare to him the effect of my business, and be ordered accordingly, as I wish to have all my causes determined. At the coming of the King's ambassador send me word, that I may give you directions.
Winchester, 25 Sept.
