Major Davison to General Monck1
Beeinge returned to my family at Leith, wher I purpose to remaine, the least I could doe is to returne your Lordship thancks for your greate seuilitys and respects to mee, and hope your Lordship will still retaine the same thouts of mee as formerly, and not sufer your chaist ears to bee infected but upon good grownds, for I can not but expect enimys, yet my owne inocency with that fathfullnes I ow, and shall by Gods blesing continue to your Lordship and those good things yow have declared for, will yeeld mee pease; your and the Comonwelths enemys complyance with your proposalls may bee such, or there incolencyes soe great, that may again bring mee under your comaund, in which I shall as ever study to aproue my selfe.
Your Lordship’s most humble saruant,
Leith, the 20th
