[The General to Lieut. Gen. Cromwell.]
By the Remonstrance which was lately tendered to the House of Commons I beleve your apprehensions are full of the waightines of our present affaires, therefore in that particuler I shall not saie any thinge: onlie lett you know that my self with the advice of my Generall Councell of Officers desire, that you would (with all convenient speede possible) come to the Head quarters, whereby I hope our councells and endeavours as formerly j[oining] a mercifull furtherance wilbee giuen to the very great business now in agitatation: the importance whereoff I am confident you duely resent.
Windsor. Nov. 28,
For Lt. Generall Cromwell.a
[a ]Cromwell’s opinion of the Remonstrance is given in an undated letter to Fairfax, printed in the English Historical Review for 1887, p. 149. “Wee have read your Declaration heere,” he says, “and see in itt nothinge but what is honest, and becominge Christians and honest men to say and offer.” Compare also letter 83 in Carlyle’s Cromwell.
