The Bill for suspending privileges not being passed, the writer's directions for dissolving the Parliament are positive. But, when those directions were given, it was not doubted that the Act of Oblivion ... would have passed, without much difficulty or examination. ... It seems to be apprehended that "a Clause of Restitution", - fifly inserted in it in favour of those who are, or shall be, restored to estates, - may extend farter than was intended by the King, or than can consist with the Acts of Settlement & Explanation. Yet it is certain that this Act was penned by the ablest lawyers here ...

The writer proceeds to state, at great length, the arguments which may be urged on either side for (1) the immediate dissolution of Parliament according to His Majesty's previous directions; (2) for the endeavour, before dissolving, to obtain the passing of the Act of Oblivion aforesaid, by making therein such amendments of form as may dispel the apprehensions above-mentioned ...

Recites that the propositions by way of mediation for peace recently offered by the Ambassadors Extraordinary of France were accompanied by a disavowal of authority from the Hague to intervene, yet upon reprisal of those propositions they stated on departure that the King, their master, would deem himself obliged by such refusal to assert the United Provinces in the prosecution of the war. Asserts that England has no cause of quarrel with France, other than that arising out of the course taken by His M.C. Majesty in relation to the disputes between England and the Netherlands; and that, as to Denmark, that power could have taken no part whatever in those disputes without incurring the guilt of a double violation of public faith, first towards the Netherlands, & then towards England. The King adds that he now feels himself constrained to make public declaration that the expedition to 'Berguen' would never have been thought of, but for the express invitiation of the King of Denmark, and for his proposition to share with England the spoil of the Dutch ships [The attack on the Dutch merchantmen which had sought refuge in the Harbour of Bergen was made in August 1665]. This however, nothwithstanding, in order to the future strengthening of the Protestant interest the King will not refuse the mediation of the United Provinces for the conclusion of a peace with Denmark upon just conditions.

Would have been glad had the Bill against Irish Cattle been stopt, in either House, but knows not whether he ought to wish that the King should refuse his assent to it.

Perhaps, it were better they should find that this restriction will not help them, than to leave them liberty to say that it would have done, had the King consented. ...

Shelfmark: MS. Carte 47, fol(s). 128

Document type: Holograph

Is heartily glad that my Lord Chancellor [of Ireland] is in so fair way of recovery, - that the Lord Lieutenant may have the more time to think of an able successor. There is general good testimony that he fills the place very well. The writer perceives that it is hard to find in Ireland a good man to succeed him. From hence, it will be as difficult to persuade a good man to submit to that promotion. ... A blessed peace, and three or four years of settlement may, it is to be hoped, bring Ireland into more reputation. ...
