Respects of that Kingdome towards this, soe they
doe esteeme the Union of the Two Kingdomes to bee
One of the greatest Blessings of Heaven, and a speciall Meanes for secureing our Safety at Home, and

Amity and Union, that they may bee ayding and

for the Maintenance of Religion, the King's Honnor,
and just Liberty of the Subject in both Kingdomes;
and, for that End, the Estates of Parliament of this
Kingdome have ratifyed and confirmed the Solemne
League and Covenant, and severall Treatyes betwixt the Kingdomes; and, that both Kingdomes may
bee as well united in their Councells as Forces, and
a right Correspondence continued in promoveing this
greate Worke by common Resolution, they have appointed Commissioners, and have authorized them
with full Power, as a joynt Comittee with yours,
in prosecuting the Ends exprest in the late Solemne

retourned the Propositions framed by the Committees
of both Kingdomes as Grounds of a safe and just
Peace, with their Sence therupon; and have renewed their Committee with the Army, to joyne
with your Commissioners, for the better carrying on
of the Warr. Our Sence of the many Difficultyes
and greate Burthens of the Kingdome of England has
moved this Kingdome to extend their uttermost Endeavors for Supply and Releife of the Army in
Ireland with Victualls and Money, for their Subsistance; and for the Thirty Thousand Pounds sent
hether in Part of your Arrears, there is a Discharge
retourned; and wee doe confidently expect that, by

promised to that Army will bee sent against the

the Parliament has named a Committee to joyne with

both Kingdomes shall thinke fitt to send hether for
that End, and have given further Instruction in that
Behalfe to our Commissioners at London; and since
there are Armyes sent from this Kingdome into England, in Pursuance of the Covenant and Treaty, the
Care and just Respect wee have of our Freinds and
Countrymen (who are hazarding their Lives and
Fortunes for settling of Religion and Peace), and our
earnest Desir of the Prosperity of the Cause, moves
us to sollicite and expect that the Honnorable Houses
of Parliament will bee carefull that the Conditions
and Entertainment promised to them bee tymely performed, whereby they may bee enabled with the
greater Alacrity to prosecute the Service, till it
please God to put a happy End to these Troubles;
and, as the cheifest Designe and greatest Hopes
of the Enemyes has bin in the Division of these
Kingdomes, soe it is the constant Resolution of
this Kingdome inviolably to observe their Union
and Covenant with their Brethren; that, against
all Opposition, the Truth of Religion may bee
settled, with a firme Peace in all His Majesty's Dominions; and that the Amity betwixt these Kingdomes
may bee perpetuated to all Posterity. And this the
Estates of Parliament have commaunded to bee made
knowne to you in their Names, by
