Wee are further to lett your Lordships knowe, that, as our former Carriages has given reall Testimonyes of our constant Affection to this Cause, and of our Desire to preserve Amity betwixt the Two Kingdomes, soe shall wee doe our uttmost Endeavors to continue a good Correspondency to the common Happines of both, beinge confident, by God's Blessinge, that nothinge shall bee able to divide or begett a Misunderstandinge betweene us; and that the Parliament of England lies not other Intentions then to make good all their Engagments according to the Treaty, which wee shall studdy inviolably to observe: But as for any-thing relating to the Maintenance of our Army, wee shall retourne your Lordships more perticuler Answere, when wee have better informed ourselves of the Condition thereof, and have Occasion thereafter to make knowne our Desires in their Behalfe.

"Haveing taken into Consideration the Condition of our Forces, and findinge that they cannott subsist upon the present Maintenance allowed them; wee are to desire your Lordships, for their further Encouragment, and the avoydinge of many Complaints which through their Necessityes may bee occasioned, that your Lordships would bee pleased either to performe the Monethly Payment agreed upon by the Articles of the Treaty, or otherwise that our Forces may bee duly paid and entertained according to their Mustars, which they shall never declyue to bee made as frequently and strictly as your Lordships thinke fitt; for the Inequality of your Souldiers Pay, constantly given them, cannott but bee just Matter of Discontent to others who are joyned with them in the same Service, and therefore conceive they ought to bee in noe worse Condition.

English Commissioners Answer to the Scots Commissioners Paper of the 4th, concerning Entertainment of the Scottish Army, delivered at Collingham, 7th April.

"Lincolne, the 4th of April, 1646.

"In Answer to your Lordships Paper of this Instant; at our First being in these Parts, and ever since, we have used our utmost Endeavours for Pay and Provisions for your Army, according as (fn. *) we were authorized by both Houses of Parliament; and we shall not omit any Thing we possibly can do, that your Soldiers may be duly paid and provided for, according to the Treaty. We paid Fifteen Thousand Pounds Sterling to your Commissary Mr. Dromond at our first coming down; and great Quantities of Cloaths and Arms were delivered to him. We have since paid unto him Eighty Thousand Three Hundred Thirty and Three Pounds, Six Shillings, Eight Pence; and do find, by several Acquittances and credible Informations, that, with the Money and Provisions delivered in to the Commissary, and the Money and Provisions taken by some Officers and Soldiers of your Army, there hath been much more received than proportionably to Thirty Thousand Pounds per Mensem for Twenty-one Thousand Men, according to the Treaty. We have here very great Quantities of Corn and Cheese for your Army; which we have long desired, and do now intreat, that it may with all Speed be received for your Forces.

"Signed, by the Command, and in the Name, of the Committee of both Houses of the Parliament of England.

** 7 April, 1646.

English Commissioners Paper to the Scots Commissioners, concerning the supernumerary Horse, and Misdemeanors.

"Collingham, 7th of April, 1646.

"In Pursuance of our Instructions from both Houses of the Parliament of England, we desire of your Lordships, that your supernumerary Horse, above those mentioned in the Treaty, may be no Charge or Burthen to us. They, as we conceive, may have occasioned the great Misdemeanors committed by some of your Officers and Soldiers, to the Scandal of the honest and well-deserving in your Army. They have taken so great Sums of Money and Quantities of Provisions, as your Foot and the rest of your Horse have thereby suffered Want. So great a Number of Horse is no Way useful for the Service against Newarke (many of them having never done any Duty); but are very prejudicial thereunto, these Parts being no Way able to provide for them, and the Counties of Yorke and Derby being thereby much disenabled to pay their own Forces now employed before Newarke; which if continued, we shall be necessitated to send back all or most of the Yorkesheir Forces, which are about Two Thousand Eight Hundred Horse and Foot. We most earnestly wish, and shall ever endeavour, a good Correspondency betwixt both Kingdoms; and though, after Offences committed, it is for the Justice, Honour, and real Benefit of both, that the Offenders receive condign Punishment, yet we had much rather all Occasions of them were prevented, and that all your and our Forces were such as by their Carriage did declare they stood for the Cause of God, in maintaining His true Religion, and the Laws and Liberties of both Kingdoms.

"Signed, by Command, and in the Name, of the Commissioners of the Parliament of England.

"Wm. Rowe, Secretary."

** 10 April, 1646. Scots Commissioners Answer to the English Commissioners Paper of the 7th, concerning the supernumerary Horse, and Misdemeanors.

"Collingham, 10th Aprill, 1646.

"In Answere to your Lordships Paper of the 7th Instant, wee are to shewe you, that, since our comeinge to this Place, wee have not much looked upon the Treaty, nor should wee ever by it have found out any supernumerary Forces in our Army; for wee conceave that, by the Treaty, wee were obliged to bring in the Number therein specifyed at least; but if wee had brought in Triple the Number, they should have beene at that Tyme very acceptable to this Kingdome, which (in that Posture of Affaires, and since that Tyme alsoe) had more then Neede of them. Wee are sorry that the Assistance which wee have performed soe faithfully, with soe much Hazard to our Kingdome, and with soe much Trouble and Missery to those in the Service, should now bee accounted a Charge and a Burden; nor can wee disband any Part of our Army without greate Inconveniencyes to followe thereupon; and if your Lordships judge such Numbers of Horses not to bee usefull against Newarke, surely it was otherwise thought by the Parliament when our Army was soe often called to this Service; and if some have not done Duty before the Towne, it wes not through any Unwillingnes in the Officers and Souldiers (who had much rather bee upon the present Imployments then lying abroad in the Country) but through the Want of Maintenance allowed them. Wee knowe not the Abilityes of the Countyes of Yorke and Derby; only wee desire, and ought to have, constant Maintenance to our Forces, come from whence it will; nor presume wee to intermedle or inquire what your Lordships doe with your Forces; but shall labour (God willinge), in our Quarters and Approaches, to doe the Duty competent to ours. Wee have alwayes endeavored, and we may say have performed, every Thinge for keeping a good Correspondence betweene the Kingdomes; and for any Misdemeanors committed by any, as wee are exceedingly displeased therewith, and shal bee ready to joyne with your Lordships to heare the Complaints, redresse the Greivances, and doe exemplary Justice when any Offence shall bee duly proven, soe doe wee wish that Complaints were not sought after, and too much harkened to, to the Scandall of the Honest and Wellaffected. Occasions cannott altogether bee avoyded where there are Armyes; but if wee hould not Hand to the Punishment of Offences, wee shall then bee guilty of the What of Justice and Honnor. Wee will not justify the Carriage of every Souldier; but wee must say, the generall Bent of our Nation hath beene, as is, to stand for the Cause of God, the Maintenance of true Religion, and the Lawes and Libertyes of both Kingdomes; and for these wee are ready to sacrifice our Lives.

** 10 April, 1646. The English Commissioners Reply to the latter Part of the Scots Commissioners Answer of the 10th, concerning Misdemeanors.

"Collingham, 10th April, 1646.

"We shall reply at our next Meeting to the First Part of your Lordships Answer now delivered to us; and for the other, which concerns the Misdemeanors committed by some in your Army, we assure you those Complaints have found us out wheresoever we have been; and we conceive many of them have been sufficiently proved, and have Reason to believe the rest will be made good, they coming to us from several and credible Persons: We most earnestly desire that there may not be any Delay in the Hearing of them, that such Offenders as are guilty may receive condign Punishment, and the miserable distressed Counties have some Ease; we are therefore now ready to agree with your Lordships of a fitting Time and Place for yours and our hearing the Cause; and that it may be fairly and duly had, we desire of your Lordships, that your Forces which quarter upon those Places, and over-awe the Inhabitants from whence these Complaints come, may be removed; else, we find it will not be possible for us to get the Witnesses to appear.

As for those of other Nations, we shall at present say no more, but that the Parliament of England confides in their Brethren of the Kingdom of Scotland, who are, by solemn League and Covenant before Almighty God, and by Treaty, joined in the strictest Bonds of Union.

** 15 April, but delivered 17th, 1646 English Commissioners Reply to the First Part of the Scots Commissioners Answer of the 10th, concerning the supernumerary Horse.

"Lincolne, 15th of April, 1646.

"We conceive the First Part of your Lordships Answer of the 10th not to be satisfactory to our just Desires in our Paper of the 7th Instant; and if you please to peruse the Treaty, you will find the Horse you now have to be supernumerary to those therein expressed: And where your Lordships alledge, that, if you had brought in Triple the Number therein specified, they would have been at that Time very acceptable to this Kingdom, which (in that Posture of Affairs, and since that Time also) had more than Need of them; your Lordships may well remember, that the Desires of the Parliament of England would have been satisfied with Ten Thousand Foot and a Thousand Horse from their Brethren of Scotland, according to the Instructions given to their Commissioners; and it was their Consent to your Desires to have them for the Number mentioned in the Treaty; and your Lordships will conceive the Parliament of England to be the Judges of what this Kingdom needs. We are confident your Lordships will conceive, when many of your Horse (not comprehended in the Treaty) take Free Quarter in this Kingdom, that our Desires are most reasonable that they be no Charge or Burthen to us, and will see this Kingdom eased therein. Your Lordships and we do now know, that many of your Horse are useless in the Service against Newarke, and have never done any Duty (what they have done we shall leave for another Time). And where your Lordships set forth, that the Parliament thought otherwise than we do of the Numbers of Scottish Horse when your Army was so often called to this Service; we shall transmit the Proceedings herein to both Houses of Parliament, and say no more for the present, but that, by an Ordinance of Parliament of 14th of February, 1645, sent unto us by Lieutenant General Leslye, with his Demand for Fifteen Thousand Pounds Monthly of us, it is there inserted, That no Part thereof should be extended to the Pay of any supernumerary Horse; but that the Horse be reduced to the Number expressed in the Treaty. And we can say of the Parliament of England, That they have always endeavoured and performed every Thing for keeping a good Correspondency between both Kingdoms, and have ever given Instructions to those employed by them in your Army accordingly.

** 5 Maii, 1646. The English Commissioners there Protestation against a pretended Council of War, held at Laughton, 21th April, 1646, by the Officers of Col. Frazer's Regiment; sent in a Letter to Newcastle, 12 May, 1646.

"Balderton, 5th of May, 1646.

"Whereas your Lordships (upon our Desire of the 23th of April, to know the Names of the Two Malefactors mentioned in the Letter you then imparted to us at Gaynsborough, to be executed for the Misdemeanors committed in or near Tickhill) were pleased, the 30th of April, to deliver unto us the Proceedings of some Officers as of a Council of War; we conceive ourselves obliged, by the Trust reposed in us from the Parliament of England, to represent unto your Lordships some Particulars of the true State of the Proceedings concerning the Business of Tickhill, which we believe are unknown to your Lordships, or to the Lord General Leven. We find, and we were before informed thereof, that One of those Persons executed near Tickhill was sentenced (fn. *) for running away from your Army, and had never committed any Offence by us complained of; and the other Person who suffered Death was an ordinary Trooper, and none of the great Offenders, and was sentenced for other Offences formerly committed, as well as for those we complained against. We sent the Complaints of the Inhabitants of Tickhill unto Lieutenant General Lesly, on the 22th of January last; and after much Time spent to have the Forces removed, before we could get any Witnesses to appear for Fear of them, the Witnesses and many of the Offenders were heard at Gaynesborough, on the 27th of February, and condign Punishment promised to be inflicted on the Offenders. After, a Council of War was appointed to be at Tuxford on the Second of April, and Warrants sent for divers Witnesses to attend, of which Fortyseven appeared, many of them poor Persons, and who staid there all that Day and Night at their own Charge; but no Council of War was held, nor Notice given to the contrary till the next Morning. After, another Council of War was appointed, to be held at Bawtry, on the 16th Day of April; and Warrants sent out for the Witnesses, of which many appeared before Lieutenant General Leslie and others. Divers of the Witnesses and some Parties were heard; One Witness sworn to prove a material Complaint, and a Spanyard sworn on the Part of a Malefactor: But no further Proceedings, because it was alledged there were not Officers enow come to make a full Council (fn. †) of War, and that it was past Twelve of the Clock, before which Hour the Court was to be fully constituted, or else (they said) they could not, according to their accustomed Rules of War, sit as a Martial Judicatory for that Day. Since, it appears, by the Paper received from your Lordships, there was a Meeting the 21th of April last, at Laughton, in the County of Yorke, pretended to be a Council of War, for sentencing the Malefactors for the Offences committed at or near Tickhill. Against which, and the Proceedings thereof, we do protest; as, that the Judges were not competent Persons, nor doing according to Justice:

"For, First, the Regiment of Colonel Frazier is complained against, and all the pretended Council of War were of that Regiment.

"Secondly, Not One of those, but Colonel Frazer, were of the former Meeting at Bawtry, before whom the Witnesses were heard and sworn as aforesaid.

"Thirdly, Some of the Persons of the Council of War were particularly interessed in this Business.

"Fourthly, This Council of War did not summon or hear any Witnesses; and their Sentences seem to be given (in many Particulars) on the Answer of the Offenders only; and what Proofs were read in Evidence against the Offenders we know not, for we heard not of this pretended Council of War till it was past, neither were any there present from us; whereas we ourselves were at a former Examination, and, at the Desire of Lieutenant General Lesley (upon very short Warning), we had some Persons present at the other Two Hearings: We therefore most earnestly desire of your Lordships, that due Care may be taken to redress the Proceedings of this pretended Council of War; for we do aver, by what we heard ourselves, and by the Examinations taken at Bawtry, divers heinous Misdemeanors were fully proved to be committed by the Persons acquitted, or but sentenced to suffer some small Punishment, nothing proportionable to their Offences; and we do insist upon it, that the Offenders of greater Quality, against whom there are yet no Proceedings for the Misdemeanors committed in or near Tickhill, may receive condign Punishment; and that the Malefactors (against whom your Lordships heard the Examinations at Gaynsborough the 23th of April last) may be duly punished. Exemplary Justice is the Way to prevent future Misdemeanors, and remove the Guilt from your whole Army.
