Cornet Monck to General Monck
xxxi. f. 161.On Munday last my Lord Lieutenant was ship’t, with such ceremony and respect as is usuall to persons of his quality uppon such occasions, wherin the Commissioners of Parliament, officers martiall and civill, and citizens appeared, the great guns played their parte, and the university condoled the departure of their Chancellour in an excellent speech pronounced by their Orator; which is all that is observable uppon his Lordshipp’s exit.2
Dublin, 29 June,
[2 ]Parliament summoned Henry Cromwell to England by vote of June 7, resolving that the government of Ireland should be entrusted to five commissioners (Commons’ Journals, vii. 674). His letter of resignation, addressed to the Speaker, is dated June 15, and is printed, together with two letters to Fleetwood, in the Thurloe Papers (vii. 683-5). Mercurius Politicus for June 23-30 contains the address of the Irish Army, and also a letter of Henry Cromwell’s, dated June 22, on the surrender of his authority to the commissioners appointed by Parliament. It deserves reprinting.
