xxxi. f. 217.The House hath satt all day (and, itt’s thought, will nott rise till to morrow morning) in debate of a representacion and addresse of the army, signed by many officers in the countrie, and sent from Cheshire to bee signed heere;1 wherin itt is (amongst other thinges) desired that the Lord Fleetwood may bee made Generall, Lord Lambert Major Generall, Generall Disbrowe Lieutenant Generall of horse, and Colonel Berry Commissary Generall. The House hath sent for Colonel Cobbett, Colonel Ashfeild, and Colonel Pearson (who have nott yett bin call’d in) to know their pleasures. The Lord Fleetwood this afternoone delivered a copy of itt to the House; many are the feares, and more are the hopes that (after soe many signall mercies) the Lord will nott leave nor forsake us.
