His Lordship has the writer's thanks for the pains he has taken to quiet the mind of the English in Ormond, especially those of Nenagh. ... If the Irish of Ormond use all their industry to hinder the planting of English among them, they do but what they have learnt from their forefathers. The territory was once planted with English by the Duke's ancestors; ... but, when one of them was drawn to assert, in the civil wars, the title of the House of Lancaster, he took with him most of his able English; of which advantage was taken by the Irish to destroy the rest. This, & the barbarism ... exercised upon the English at the beginning of the last rebellion, the writer cannot forget. ... He will use all prudent & just means to secure the new English from like destruction, whereinto nothing can lay them so open as obstinate & unreasonable separation from ... the Church [of England]. ...

By information from Sir James Shaen, it is found that the Londoners [i.e. the "Irish Chamber of London"] are endeavouring to pass, under the Great Seal of England, a grant relating to Londonderry by which his Majesty will sustain some prejudice. ... Upon conference with those interested, Sir James Shaen has reason to believe that they will be willing to abate their terms - upon grant of the rest, with the security of an Act of Parliament - in these particulars:

(1) to yield their interest in the Customs to the King; (2) to increase their rents to the Adventurers' rates; (3) to relinquish their interest in all arrears of rent [payable to the grantees] before the 10th of April last.

Here, it is found that they are endeavouring, on account of a defect in a former grant under the Great Seal of England, to procure a new one, under that Seal, without examination first had in Ireland. ...

By an Order in Council of 22 June, 1662, the King expressly commanded the entry of a Caveat to the Secretary, Signet, Privy Seal, & Great Seal, against the grant of matters relating to Ireland, without prior communication to the Lord Lieutenant & Council here. ...

Some way must needs be found to enforce that execution; otherwise the Commissioners would sit only to establish possessors, & not to restore innocents. ... Some English possessors have said that they will not quit possession, be the decrees what they may. ... In the result, enforcement "by the power of the county" would look like a war between the two nations. ... It is the writer's part to use all means to prevent this. ... How inconvenient, therefore, it will be that the Army should, at such a time, be in want of its pay ... is apparent. ...

Mention the publication at Madrid of the Marriage Contract of the Emperor Leopold I with the Infanta of Spain and descibes the ceremonious reception, on the occasion, of the Imperial Ambassador to that Court.

Notice the excitement occasioned in Paris by the carrying off of various young men and women under pretext of sending them into French America (whither the Vice-Roy of that territory had power to send "vagabonds" only) and the consequent public proclamation, by sound of trumpet, in various parts of the City, of the King's prohibition. Some of the malefactors were hung; others lost their lives in the street-riots so occasioned. The tumult, it is noticed, had been accidently fomented by a mistake of the populace about a barge, laden with beet root for the park of Versailles; and covered with carpets, which were supposed to conceal kidnapped people. The barge had to be delayed, near the Louvre, that its real contents might be exhibited.
