"We received Yesterday the Votes of both Houses,
concerning His Majesty's Removal from hence to

a Messenger from us now attending his Answer, which
is not yet come to us. We also acquainted Colonel

the present give us any farther Satisfaction."

our Endeavours to discharge the Trust reposed in us;

Letter from the Common Council, to preserve a good Correspondence between the City and the Army.
"May it please your Excellency and the Honourable Council of War,
"Your Answer of the 14th, and Letter dated the
15th of this Instant June, with Copies of the Papers
given in to the Parliament, we, the Mayor, Aldermen, and Commons, in Common Council assembled,
have received and perused; and, by our Committee,
we have been further informed of the great Respect
you have shewed to us, in your noble and courteous
Entertainment of them, and of your many seasonable
Expressions of the Reality of your Intentions to promote the Peace and Welfare of the Parliament and
Kingdom, and in particular of this City; which how
acceptable it is unto us, will best appear by our Proceedings thereupon.
"We take it very kindly, that, though you were informed divers Soldiers were daily listed under Officers in and about the Cities of London and Westm'r,
and Parts thereto adjacent, by the said Trained Bands
and usual Auxiliaries, yet you conceived (and that
most truly) it was without the Privity or Consent of
this Court, and did not suspect the Sincerity of our
Hearts in what by our last was represented unto you;
wherein, for your further Satisfaction, be pleased to
take Notice, that, since the Return of our Committee
from St. Albans, your said Answer and Letter, and a
Narrative of the several Passages 'twixt you and our
Committee, and your Desire that the City should use
their Endeavour to prevent all such Listings, and
therein deal so effectually as that nothing be for the
future done towards such Listings, or raising any
Forces, and that those already raised might be forthwith discharged; and the Resolution of this Court,
and the Committee of the Militia of this City and
Parts adjacent, upon the Whole, being all by our
Direction made known to both Houses of Parliament,
they were pleased to make several Votes thereupon,
whereunto (as to those Things) we desire to be referred.
"By all which, we hope, the great Desire of this
Court and City to cherish a right Understanding, and
keep a good Correspondency, twixt your Excellency,
your Council of War, Army, and this City, will evidently appear; and shortly draw from you a more
full Answer, Satisfaction, and Assurance, that your
Army shall no Way prejudice the Parliament (whose
Power and Privileges are the principal Means to preserve the Liberties of the Subjects of this Kingdom),
nor this City, who have lost so much Blood, and
spent so much Treasure, in Defence thereof; and, in
order thereunto, that it shall be forthwith removed
to, and continued at, a farther Distance from London.

Commons, of the City of London, in Common Council assembled.
