The Commissioners of the Army of Scotland to General Monck
lii. f. 23b.Wee have received your Lordshipp’s of the 15th instant, by which wee understand that ours from Tadcaster of the 8th came safe to your hands, though opened, which was contrary to the engagements made unto us. Wee hope there is nothing in the Agreement which wee sent your Lordshipp by an expresse but what is very consistent with your Declarations, that 4th Article of calling a Parliament being noe waise exclusive of the Long Parliament, but may bee as well understood of that as of any other. Wee have not touched uppon anything touching the conduct of the army, raiseing of monies, or owneing the power of the Committee of Safety, wherein as long as wee stand off wee think your cause can hardly receive detriment, and wee purpose to doe nothing therein without your perticular directions. Wee shall bee impatient till wee know how your Lordshipp doth approve of what is already done, wherein wee hope to receive satisfaction by the end of this weeke. Wee have heerein sent you the impression wherewith this letter is sealed, and all our letters are superscribed by the Lord Fleetwood, which is all wee shall burthen your Lordshipp with at present, and remaine
Your Lordshipp’s most humble and faithfull servants,
