... Held it needless to say anything to the chancellor about the letters of recommendation received from him. His lordship knows the weight they have already and that attaching to his characters of persons.

"We are now in the heats of ... debate upon the great Bill [of settlement for Ireland]. I fear the liberty allowed to the Irish to speak for themselves will turn to their prejudice, through the unskilful use they make of it, - as of justifying themselves; instructing the king and the council of what is good for them; and recriminating upon others whereas a modest extenuation of their crimes; an humble submission to, & imploring of, his Majesty's grace; and a declaration of their hearty desire to live quietly & brotherly with their fellow subjects for the future, would have better befitted the disadvantages they are upon, and have more prevailed than all their other eloquence" ...

The prudence & importance of their lordships' letter of August 7th would have demanded speedier acknowledgement, but that any return made earlier would scarcely have found their lordships, together, at Dublin and also that the matter could not effectually be put in practice, until the passing of the Act [of Settlement], "upon which", alone, "legal & lasting determinations can be made to ... settle, forever, possessions & inheritances." In the meantime, adds the duke, the king approves of their conceptions ...

... His Majesty desires not only to be himself informed fully of the concernments of those who will be concluded by this bill, "but likewise to let the world see that if many hard things must be done, they must be imputed to the entanglements of many defections & usurpations, and to the supreme duty, incumbent upon his office, of providing most probably for the peace & security of his people, according to the state he finds them in; - and not from any want of that mercy & compassion, which his heart so abounds with, that his greatest delight is to see all men happy, and his greatest affliction not to be - through their own either fault or misfortune, - able to make them so."

There is no other discourse here at this time, but about "the great contest betwixt the Commissioners who went lately hence, and the agents for the Irish; the contest being, as is said, for a long time very doubtful, until the last debate before his Majesty, which hath much elevated the Irish", by [reason of] "some expressions which fell from his Majesty that the Peace" made by his Grace ... "should be made good unto them." ... The writer prays God to direct his Majesty in this great work, & that he may distinguish betwixt the harmless sheep and the noisome goats ... The writer reviews, and criticizes at great length, the pending questions on the Bill of Settlement, as affected by the various incidents of the rebellions and of the usurpation ... There ought, he contends, to be certain distinctions, according to diversity of circumstance, "betwixt adventurer and adventurer, and betwixt soldier and soldier, for it is a shame to reward some of those either with lands or money. Many of them may thank God, & a gracious king, for escaping Tyburn, and be well content to go without lands."

The writer's letter of Sept 27 was sent under cover to Mr Fleetwood, and was carried by him so far on its way to England, as to Hamburgh. There, Fleetwood determined [on advices from England] to return into Sweden. It is hoped the Earl will deign to accept the letter, after this long delay; and to permit another recital of later events in Sweden.

The visit of Queen Christina was received with every demonstration of joy and respect. There was, indeed, ignorance of its real object, and some natural suspicions, amongst the People, on account of the late Queen's unexpected change of religion; a change so repugnant to the glorious memory of her great father. But, eventually, people came to be assured that her chief object related to matters of revenue. At first, she made a very open display of her religion, but was ultimately persuaded to demolish certain obnoxious altars in the Palace, and to keep things more quiet. Now, there is even an anticipation that possibly she may be induced to prefer Sweden, to Rome, as her place of residence.

The Earl congratulated the writer upon his accession to the dignity of Duke, when such accession was the King's pleasure. The same friendship will lead him to condole with the writer upon the uneasy service, in Ireland, to which the King is now pleased to designate him, as his Lieutenant.
