xxxii. f. 103.I received yours of November the 2d, and have of late forborne, because the passage hath not beene free. What you may safely write as to matter of fact, without opinion, bee pleased at leisure to impart. Things heere in the South are in a perplexed condition; the lawe is tottering, the Citty is wavering, the Clergy declineing, the people murmering, and nothing but the face of confusion appeares; the divisions are soe greate, military and civill, certainely some greate judgement attends this place and the whole land. If it doe come, God is just; his mercyes and deliverances have beene abased by the sinister ends which have beene made thereof. Wee expect the Commissioners from Generall Monck this weeke; as things proceede therein yow shall understand further.
