Bishop of Killaloe to Ormond

Shelfmark: MS. Carte 31, fol(s). 612

Document type: Holograph

Upon the writer's return from Dublin, he found a general discontent in this country, occasioned by many false & scandalous reports, ... the seminary of which being Ormond (in the writer's diocese), he thought it his duty to enquire after the seedsmen. ...To that end, he called a meeting of the Justices of the Peace. ... Some appear to be poor and ignorant men, misled by inquisitiveness, credulity, & vanity: but, amongst others, is W Hutchinson, the arch-anabaptist in these parts, for whose apprehension a warrant is issued. As yet, he conceals himself. ... Some others are bound over, to the next quarter sessions.

Written from: Worcester House

Date: 1 September 1662

Shelfmark: MS. Carte 47, fol(s). 3-4

Document type: Holograph

Since the writer's last letter, he has the Duke's of the 16th, which seemed a very cheerful letter. ... The very severe expectation of the 'Act of Uniformity' which is resolved on may ... add more fuel to the matter that was before combustible enough. "But we are in, and must now proceed with steadyness, and so must you: and I wish I were as confident that we shall do so, or that you will."

"My Lord Ossory writes to me of money to be paid to me and also my opinion & direction for purchasing a great deal of land, at a very vile price; and all this as if he spake to a man who understands him ... which I am sure cannot be without your knowledge, and if you know it, why should not I? It is a pleasant thing to go to bed a beggar & wake a rich man. I pray tell me what the intrigue is, and what I am to do; for to me, all this is a dream."

The concernment in which his Grace was pleased to write to Sir Philip Warwick (in Sir G.

In Ireland, he is, it seems, also to suffer, from the pretensions of Lord Anglesey, who seeks an Act of Parliament to confirm to him all lands of which he is now in possession, by purchase "or otherwise".

As he dealt with Morgan for the chief seat and best part of the estate of Mornington [in MS.: "Mornanstowne"], he would so obtain that to which, as the Duke knows, the writer has a just claim, "if it prove not restorable". If restorable to the heir [Mr Wesley, an ancestor of Wellington], then the writer would have his wardship. ...

The great complaint & exception is against "commands"; amongst which there is much noise made of Sir George Lane's diet. ... The Lord Steward may command whatsoever he pleaseth, without comptrol.

This fell upon Lord Cornwallis, the writer, & some others. ...

A change has come over the minds of the leaders at the Papal Court; occasioned in part by the apparent breaking of the Pope's health; in part, by news of popular commotion at Avignon. Concessionary proposals have now been made to the French Ambassador with a view to ward off possible reprisals on the private interests of the Pope's family, in the event of his death. In the riot at Avignon, the papal insignia were torn from the City gates and hall, amidst cries of "Long live the King". The new Envoy of Spain, at the Court of Rome, has orders to proffer his good offices, in the settlement of this quarrel.

Fouquet persists in his refusal to answer interrogatories. An equerry of the Abbé Fouquet has been noticed several times at the Bastille, mounted on a horse of so much beauty, that the King has desired to see it.

In spite of the march of troops from various parts of Provence and Dauphiny towards Piedmont, in order to exact from the Pope the satisfaction due to France, it is believed that the pending questions are virtually settled, upon conditions (six in number), which the Intelligencer goes on to recite at length.

The Chancellor has declared to the Masters of Requests - at a sitting of the Council - that in future all their decisions must have the approval ["visé"] of M. Colbert, in order to their validity and due enforcement. The novelty of this procedure has led to much discontent.

Particulars are added of the King's Journey towards Dunkirk. It is noted that three royal carriages broke down, within the distance from Paris to S. Brice [about four French leagues].

And, therefore, though we were to receive £320,000 (which is all the Dunkirk money comes, in clear, unto) yet our occasions exceed it. ...
