Does not but that justice will put a due determination to the difference between the Earl of Ardglass and Mr Muschamp, but does doubt "that the sending for a subject, out of this Kingdom, upon a proceeding in Chancery, in England, wherein both the parties, and the matter, ... do all belong to this Kingdom, is without a precedent, and may be of sadder consequence to the ... liberty of all the inhabitants, ... but especially of the Nobility, than can be easily foreseen". ...

People, generally, proceeds the Archbishop, "are swallowed up with fears & apprehensions of cutting one another's throats, through the whole Kingdom. Some forsake their houses, & lie under hedges, ... lest the Presbyterians & Fanatics should fall upon them. ... others flock together into their houses & castles, and (having no arms) barricade their doors, ... lest the Irish should cut their throats." ...

Document type: Minute. Lord Wharton has endorsed this Minute thus: "Epistola Baroni de S., illi tantum ostensa, at non cum illo relicta".

Describes the course of his life, private and political, from his earliest years to the time of his arrival in the Prussian dominions. Dwells, at length, upon his efforts for defence of the Protestant Religion, and his confident hope that a journey, undertaken for the recovery of health would receive no impediment under the rule of a Prince so famous for his attachment to the Reformation as the Elector of Brandenburgh.

Sends some additional sheets (of the writer's treatise on the affairs of Ireland), ... which "come in after sixty pages are spent in confuting my Lord of Anglesey". ... The subsequent work is more to write a memoir of all, from the beginning to the end, than to pursue his Lordship, unless as he falls in the way. ...

I have read the twelfth chapter in 'the King's Book', and what his Majesty wrote after the Uxbridge Treaty; also those touches up and down, which are in Your Grace's own writing. ... "It was", he continues, "after writing these sheets, that I accidently cast my eye on that part of Peter Walsh's [in MS.: "Welch"] Letter against the Bishop of Lincoln, which relates to this very subject. ... He there gravely quotes my Lord Castlehaven's review in several instances, as if they were the sense of my Lord Castlehaven" ... [whereas his Lordship expressly says:] "those instances were what the Irish offered ... as reasons why they would, at that time, enter into such a horrid combination against their natural sovereign".

Cannot find, even with that bookseller in London "who has the choicest collection of such papers", either Sir Kenelm Digby's "Negotiation", or Sir Lewis Dyve's ["Letter to the Marquess of Newcastle; The Hague, 1650"]. ...

The exorbitancy of those who charged the Irish with having murdered, in the beginning of the Rebellion, "300,000" English, made the writer use that comparison of ... [the number said to have been] killed by Sylla & Marius within the walls of Rome. ... Were the number only that of Lord Gormanston's "400", ... yet a small repentance would not serve in the case. Nor even if a far greater number of poor, harmless, disarmed country people, of both sexes & all ages, were promiscuously murdered, in several counties, by the other side, would that alleviate the guilt of the first aggressors, in a time of profound peace." ...
