The date of this document is nearly determined by the mention it contains of accounts of 22 Hen. VIII. It shows that the public buildings and fortifications of Calais, as well as the private property within the town, were now in considerable decay, and that even the sum of 4000/. was required for this object, notwithstanding the 2000/. ordered, and we may suppose expended, for the like purpose in the year 1523 (as shown in p. 98). When the king visited Calais in person in 1532, he authorised very extensive repairs, of which the particulars are stated in the document which will follow the present.)
