... Could not doubt of the King's power to dispose of all or any bishoprics in Ireland without consulting his Chief Governor - since with three lines he may, when he will, make him no Governor, and at any time take from him any particular power he has given. ... But did put the Secretary in mind that his Majesty, in full Council, upon consideration of his own service, had declared that he would receive the advice of his Lieutenant in the disposal of bishoprics. ... And truly if the person recommended was Dr Lee, that recanted his rebellion and Presbyterian principles, the writer is sorry that it was put into his power to refuse a bishopric. ...

Has no kindness for Dr Lee, nor could he be persuaded to speak to the King for him by the importunities of the Bishop of Winchester & the Killigrews. ...

... "I do profess to you, in my conscience, my Lord Ranelagh's Petition though it be drawn with as much skill as the business will bear doth not alter the case at all from what it was ever understood to be. For the privilege of Parliament, whilst his wisdom & good manners thinks fit to stain it, it cannot be denied him; and let him, in God's name, enjoy it, whilst it lasts. For the 'Act of Indemnity', it is not applicable to his purpose." ...

Describes, at very great length, the present aspects of the political situation, as well in France and in Spain, as in the Netherlands. ... Has often thought of, and discoursed upon, the Duke's desire to bring some families from Artois into Ireland for the linen-trade. Could easily engage his Grace in an expense & trouble with undertakers upon that proposition; yet can, at present, look no way upon it so as to see light through it, or to promise himself such an effect from any present offers at it, as may make the game worth the candle; especially whilst the war makes all passage at sea as dangerous, as that by land is chargeable. ...

In his mind, a slight excuse ought not to be accepted from the Judges [for avoiding to give their opinion upon the doubts raised, concerning the clause aforesaid]. Inconvenience to them, by the declaration of their opinion, is remote. ... The satisfaction it will give to men and business here is great, and this at a time when all arts should be used to take away distrusts and fears. ...

... The letter, adds the Duke, "that was sent me from the King, undersigned by Mr Secretary Morrice, was to forbid me to represent any body to his Majesty for the Bishopric of Ferns; which I thought so odd a proceeding - after what the King had declared - that I could not let it pass without taking notice of it, as a surprising of the King. What he [Morrice] tells me, in excuse, is yet worse. For he collects from what I writ that I conceive the King ought not, when he thought fit, name anybody for a Bishopric here, without first consulting me." ...

... Amongst the Bills enumerated ... in a note that accompanied his Lordship's letters of 31 March and 10th April ... is one providing for the punishment of certain crimes, in the Court of Castle-Chambers. But that Bill had been formerly returned, ... and was not permitted to pass in the House of Commons [of Ireland]. "I conceive", adds the Duke, "it is the same Bill, ... and that it will not be fit to offer it to a second rejection, which it certainly would meet with." ...

With that letter, came also an Order of Council concerning the Canary Company, ... which does not appear to have any relation to this Kingdom ... The writer recites his former opposition to the incorporation of the Company [on apprehension of injury to the trade of Ireland], & how it came about that he was "in part overruled [Meaning, - as the context shews, - "overruled by Clarendon"], in part, persuaded" to withdraw that opposition ... Since, letters have been received direction a proclamation here that the Charter aforesaid extends to Ireland. The writer & the Council have, however, hitherto forborne to make any such proclamation, in conformity with the express power given, to the former, by his instructions, which direct that in case letters be obtained from his Majesty, directing what he, the Lord Lieutenant, deems to be prejudicial to his Majesty's service here, he may so forbear, until he shall have represented his sense thereupon, & received his Majesty's further pleasure ...

Adds, at gret length, various particulars concerning affairs of the Revenue, and of the Army and Navy. ...

Lord Orrery knows that unless it be by inherent prerogative in the Crown to arm and draw forth the subject, or by some old laws, we have no Act of Parliament for a militia, as there is in England, to authorize us in the matter, or to guide us in the manner. That which will be hardest to regulate is the limits of the service within or beyond their several counties, and when they shall be at the King's finding, & when at their own. All this is established by law in England, but here must, for aught the writer knows, depend on the voluntary good affections of the subject. ...

... Whatever may be believed of a French invasion, of an Irish rebellion, or of both, it were certainly madness not to prepare against all, as if we were sure that they would happen. ... Our fleet hath the victory, yet gained it at the rate of being shattered, disfurnished, and (as the writer doubts), for a time disabled to take the sea ...
