Secretary Thurloe to General Monck
April 26, 1659.—
f. 91.I hope you will have heard before this comes to your hands of the dissolution of the Parliament and of the manner of it. It hath pleased God that wee have since continued in peace; how long that mercy will be afforded, none can tell. The Cavalier party is exceeding busy, and will suddenly attempt something, if not prevented; wee will endeavour what wee can to doe it, and I desire your Lordship to be very vigilant to Scotland, where part of their designe is layed. This I am sure of, and it will be necessary that the forces be informed thereof, and be in a readinesse to suppresse any insurrection of that kinde. I have this day received letters from France, assuring that the peace between France and Spayne is so farre advanced, that it can scarcely miscarry. It’s said commonly, that all the points of it are agreed, but that I believe not. Generall Montague arrived in the Sound the 6th instant; hee hath offered to both the Kinges his good offices to make a peace between them, which neither of them seeme much to inclyne to. Nothing of action hath fallen out considerably between Denmark and Sweden of late.
