Sir Arthur Hasilrige to General Monck1
I beseech your Lordship to let the Council understand that I have neither directly nor indirectly done anything in opposition to the present authority settled by the Parliament in the Council of State. Neither was I knowing in the least degree of the disturbance made by Lambert. I have always acted with the authority of Parliament, and never against it, and hold it my duty to submit to the authority of the Nation and not to oppose it, and have hazarded my all to bring the military power under the civil authority. I forgott to give you the two pence, it is here enclosed, and, being secured by your Lordshipp’s promise, I hope to end the remainder of my days in peace and quiet.
30 April, 1660.
