Document type: Holograph [misbound]

Thanks the Duke for not "dissembling" any part of his distrust of the writer, which he takes to be "one very good mark of friendship", which gives him hope of being in a fair way for the rest.

The writer has had, as yet, only obscure marks of the Duke's kindness to him. It is hard to blame him for telling the King so, rather than to blame his Grace for not giving the King "occasion to observe the contrary".

As to the stopping of Grants since the writer's succession to the Secretaryship in the place of Sir Edward Nicholas, the writer remembers but three instances - "those late three great ones, concerning the Duke himself, Lord Ossory, and Lord Anglesey, which remain yet unsigned." The suspension of these, he proceeds to contend, should be ascribed, not to enmity of the writer, or to lack of kindness in the King, but to the conduct of the Parliament.

Great disorders and distress continue to prevail in Poland. The King has scarcely income enough to defray the cost of his table. The Confederates have now raised their demands from a contribution of thirteen millions to 19 millions.

The Archbishop of Strasburgh has offered to raise a Regiment for service until the end of the war. This offer he has addressed to the Pope; possibly, it is thought, with an eye upon a Cardinal's hat.

An attack has been made by highwaymen upon the carriage of the Duke of Orleans [in MS.: "M. le Prince"], which, as it chanced, contained only his equerry. A servant was mortally wounded in the melée.
