Mr. Samuel Hammond to General Monck
xxxii. f. 167.Having this evening received the inclosed with earnest desires that I would with all care and speede convey it to your Lordshipp, I have desired the bearer heereof, Mr. Thomas Watson, a member of our Church, to waite upon yow with it, not doubting of its Christian acceptance uppon the accompt of the churches from whence it comes.
My Lord, might I once more take the boldnes to present my most humble request (even in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ) on the behalfe of those poore nations over whose heade the sword is hanging in an haire, that your Lordshipp would pursue some effectuall expedient for the healeing of our breaches? My Lord, I heare there will certainely bee a Parliament and Senate to bee chosen by the people, and for other things I humbly conceive your Lordshipp uppon the renueing of the treaty will receive satisfaction.
My Lord, I humbly thanke your Lordshipp for your Christian respects to mee when waiteing uppon yow, and am emboldned further to begg your pardon for this boldnesse, and subscribe my selfe
