"If others can", adds the Duke, "I cannot foregt our many years' wanderings abroad, and what we promised, to get home. If not to break those promises be to want resolution and vigour, I am glad to be without them". ...

And, whilst the writer talks of Poetry, his Grace could not forgive him if he should not mention "my Lord of Bristol, whose late legend is more ridiculous in the repetition than all those of the Church [so in MS.]. ...

Presumes, in the case of his Majesty's directions to put [Samuel] Bathurst out of the Deputy Postmastership, to make humble return of the writer's opinion, instead of instantly obeying the command. ... Whether Bathurst's interest [in a certain Patent] shall prove good or no, his pretension is such as cannot be regularly determined, save in an ordinary way of proceeding. ... It is (he knows) suggested that the writer is too scrupulous in these things. ... But, ever since he came into business, he has given proof to the contrary. ... This [very] summer, without law, if not against law, he made no difficulty, by his own order, ... to disarm, upon the matter [= "in effect"], the whole Kingdom, and to commit many suspected persons to several prisons. This he did because his Majesty's service required it, and the preservation of the peace of the Kingdom would justify it. In lesser matters, especially in matters of controversy between party and party, he avoids to interpose the King's authority; reserving extraordinary applications of that authority for extraordinary occassions. ...

... Possibly, the Judges may think it unjust that a tenant for life should forfeit, for an innocent son, or grandchild. The writer thinks it more unjust that the son of a notorious & unrelenting rebel should be preserved, and the son of a person drawn in [to the rebellion of 1641] by the unfortunate situation of his dwelling, or driven amongst the rebels by unavoidable necessity - and, perhaps, frighted thither on puropse, because he had a good estate - should perish; and this by virtue of a piece of parchment, left by one, and not [left] by the other. ...

... The writer will be mismeasured if his care for the Public shall be judged of, by his providence in his own particular. ... Yet his affairs stand in as much need, as ever, of diligence; "the severity of your English laws, in reference to Ireland, and the unsettledness of the Kingdom, making an Irish estate, and no estate, much the same thing". ...

Ormond to the King

His Majesty's letter of the 15th brought to the Duke confirmation of what he was before in no doubt of, and yet it was far from being unnecessary. Nothing supports a servant in the difficulties & thwartings he meets with in the honest discharge of his duty, as an assurance that his endeavours are believed to be faithful, & are accordingly accepted, by his Master. And it is natural enough to love to be told we are happy, though we knew it before. ... "The subject-matter of any discontent & disturbance here is most like to proceed from the means that shall be prescribed, ... to settle the properties of your subjects, in reference to the contest for lands betwixt the English & the Irish, though something of Religion, and of zeal to that, may be brought in, to increase & cement parties. ... If a supplemental Act shall be gotten passed here, there will be the less cause to fear, that the execution of it (if fairly proceeded in) will meet with any dangerous opposition". ... If the present difficulty, the Duke proceeds to shew, shall have to be met otherwise than by an Act of Parliament, provision will also have to be made beforehand against the vigorous opposition which is to be expected. ... Adds, at great length, an account of the state of the Army.
