Letters & Papers: 1540 Volume 15 Date: 23 February 1540 No. 253 Title:Norfolk to Henry VIII. [Norfolk , the Queen of Navarre and Madame d’Estampes ]
23 Feb  253. Norfolk to Henry VIII.
On the arrival of Francisco with Henry's letters of 21st, went this morning to the King, conducted by Loys Mons. de Nevers.
Knowing my lord of London would not be acceptable to the King, caused him to take his leave in the outer chamber. Francis received Norfolk and Wallop in his bedchamber. Will report on his return, which shall be as soon as possible, for Francis will not let him tarry, though there lacked none offers on his part. Francis says he will nowise break with the Emperor if he keep promises, and finding him firm in this, Norfolk said nothing of renunciation of any part of the pension.
Trusts, however, Francis will be still the King's friend. Hopes the King will not be displeased with his return, which Francis pressed upon him. Has had this day a good time with the Queen of Navarre and Madame d'Estampes and trusts good will come of it. Abbeville, 23 Feb. Signed: T. Norfolk: John Wallop.
