Sir John Shorter, Lord Mayor, and B. Shower, Recorder of London, to the Lord President. Notwithstanding all the care that was used to prevent bonfires last night several outrages were committed, in the examination of which we have spent this afternoon, but can find no considerable persons engaged but the ordinary rabble, except one person whom we cannot yet apprehend that gave them sack at a tavern door, Mr. Huggins a wire-drawer. We have committed five and bound over several others to the sessions.

The King to Bonaventure, Bishop of Madura, President of St. Mary Magdalen College, Oxford. Whereas by our letter dated 18 July, 1687 (see no. 156 above), directed to the senior Fellow and Fellows of the college, we inhibited them to elect any Fellows, Demies, etc., or college offices till our pleasure were further known, and whereas by reason of some late alterations and irregularities there we are assured it cannot be for our service and the good of the college, nor for the speedy and effectual reformation of corruptions, abuses and disorders, as yet to return the power and liberty of electing Fellows, etc., to its ordinary course, we therefore commit to you alone the power of nominating and admitting such persons as you shall judge qualified according to the statutes of the founder to fellowships or demies' places, to the Divinity professorship or lecturer's place, to the schoolmasters' places and all other places which shall be vacant, until we signify our pleasure to the contrary. We also commit to you the sole power of nominating and admitting such Fellows as seem to you most proper to the places of Vice-President, Bursars, Deans, Moderators, etc., and to all other offices without the consent of the Fellows, and we empower you with full and sole authority to suspend, deprive and expel all such Fellows, Demies and officers as you shall judge unqualified or find to have committed such misdemeanours as deserve punishments of that nature, and all this without resort to or control from the ordinary visitor, from whose authority we wholly exempt you, any law, statute, custom or constitution to the contrary notwithstanding. And for so doing this shall be your warrant (fn. 1).

Tixall, co. Stafford.
Lord Aston to the Earl of Sunderland. My stay in co. Hertford was the longer in hopes I was not altogether unserviceable to his Majesty there. I have now been here three weeks. Since my coming down Sir Walter Bagot has been with me and desired being excused taking a deputation into the Lieutenancy, alleging his disability by reason of the extraordinary fits of gout and stone he is almost always labouring under. There is one Mr. Will. Sneyd of Keele in this county, an ancient gentleman, of the Church of England, always loyal and firm to his Majesty's interest. He has long been a Deputy Lieutenant and I am censured as not having enough represented the fitness of his being continued, so that if you will send me a permission I will take him in the room of the other. I think I acquainted you I had moved his Majesty to know what he pleased I should do with his militia of this county, and though he seemed to have no concern for them upon any account of service to be expected from them, I presumed to wish he would consider, if the country were made sensible of the charge they are subject to on their account, when it comes to be proposed in Parliament, if he think fit to release them of it and take something in lieu that may be more beneficially employed to his service, whether probably something may not with more readiness be advanced, than being wholly at ease and peradventure unsensible they part with any burden; but his Majesty not seeming to relish this, I do not make any more questions of it now but beg I may be permitted to ask whether it be judged safe to let the militia remain entirely untaken notice of, whether the making some change of the officers by granting new commissions may not be necessary, if it were but to oblige them to take notice they are not the same body they were and under the same command, lest in case of mischief they may not easily be deluded to believe they ought to obey the summons and conduct of their former commander. By what I can yet hear, the clergy of this county have in most places, not in all, disobeyed his Majesty's command for reading his Declaration in their churches last Sunday.

John Mountagu, Vice-Chancellor of the University, and Nathanaell Crabbe, Mayor of Cambridge, to the Earl of Sunderland.

For his resignation the trustees allowed him £24 as appears in the register book, and although there is a master skilful and able, yet in obedience to his Majesty's commands we have proposed to Francis Godfrey that if he can within one month (as he promised) bring in a stock to the value of £300 to employ the poor according to the donation (although that be too little for so great an undertaking) we are very willing he should be master. But if he does not perform his promise, we, as trustees, desire we may continue the present master or elect another that may have a stock answerable to so charitable a benefaction.

The Earl of Devonshire, Earl of Danby, Earl of Shrewsbury, Lord Lumley, the Bishop of London, Admiral Russell, and Henry Sidney to the Prince of Orange. We have great satisfaction to find by 35, and since by M. Zulestein, that your Highness is so ready and willing to give us such assistances as they have related to us. We have great reason to believe that we shall be every day in a worse condition than we are and less able to defend ourselves, and therefore we do earnestly wish we might be so happy as to find a remedy before it be too late for us to contribute to our own deliverance; but although these be our wishes yet we will by no means put your Highness into any expectations which may misguide your own counsels in this matter, so that the best advice we can give is to inform your Highness truly both of the state of things here at this time and of the difficulties which appear to us. As to the first, the people are so generally dissatisfied with the present conduct of the Government in relation to their religion, liberties, and properties (all which have been greatly invaded), and they are in such expectation of their prospects being daily worse that your Highness may be assured there are nineteen parts of twenty of the people throughout the Kingdom who are desirous of a change; and who, we believe, would willingly contribute to it if they had such a protection to countenance their rising as could secure them from being destroyed before they could get to be in a posture able to defend themselves. It is no less certain that much the greatest part of the nobility and gentry are as much dissatisfied, although it be not safe to speak to many of them beforehand; and there is no doubt but that some of the most considerable of them would venture themselves with your Highness at first landing, whose interests would be able to draw great numbers to them wherever they could protect the raising and drawing men together. And if such a strength could be landed as were able to defend itself and them, till they could be got together into some order, we make no question but that strength would quickly be increased to a number double to the Army here, although their Army should all remain firm to them. Whereas we do upon very good grounds believe that their Army would then be very much divided among themselves, many of the officers being so discontented that they continue in their service only for a subsistence (besides that, some of their minds are known already) and very many of the common soldiers do daily show such an aversion to the Popish religion that there is the greatest probability imaginable of great numbers of deserters, which would come from them should there be such an occasion; and amongst the seamen it is almost certain there is not one in ten who would do them any service in such a war. Besides all this, we do much doubt whether this present state of things will not yet be much changed to the worse before another year by a great alteration, which will probably be made both in the officers and soldiers of the Army, and by such other changes as are not only to be expected from a packed Parliament, but what the meeting of any Parliament (in our present circumstances) may produce against those, who will be looked upon as principal obstructors of their proceedings there; it being taken for granted that if things cannot then be carried to their wishes in a parliamentary way, other measures will be put in execution by more violent means; and although such proceedings will then heighten the discontents, yet such courses will probably be taken at that time as will prevent all possible means of relieving ourselves.
These considerations make us of opinion that this is a season in which we may more probably contribute to our own safeties than hereafter (although we must own to your Highness there are some judgements differing from ours in this particular) insomuch that, if the circumstances stand so with your Highness that you believe you can yet be time enough in a condition to give assistance this year, sufficient for a relief under these circumstances which have been now represented, we who subscribe this will not fail to attend your Highness upon your landing, and to do all that lies in our power to prepare others to be in as much readiness as such an action is capable of, where there is so much danger in communicating an affair of such a nature, till it be near the time of its being made public. But as we have already told your Highness we must also lay our difficulties before your Highness which are chiefly: that we know not what alarum your preparations for this expedition may give or what notice it will be necessary for you to give the States beforehand, by either of which means their intelligence or suspicions here may be such as may cause us to be secured before your landing; and we must presume to inform your Highness that your compliment upon the birth of the child (which not one in a thousand here believes to be the Queen's) hath done you some injury. The false imposing of that upon the Princess and the nation, being not only an infinite exasperation of people's minds here, but being certainly one of the chief causes upon which the declaration of your entering the Kingdom in a hostile manner must be founded on your part, although many other reasons are to be given on ours. If, upon a due consideration of all these circumstances, your Highness shall think fit to adventure upon the attempt, or, at least, to make such preparations for it as are necessary (which we wish you may), there must be no more time lost in letting us know your resolutions concerning it, and in what time we may depend that all the preparations will be ready, as also whether your Highness does believe the preparations can be so managed as not to give them warning here, both to make them increase their force and to secure those they shall suspect would join with you. We need not say anything about ammunitions, artillery, mortar-pieces, spare arms etc., because if you think fit to put anything in execution you will provide enough of these kinds and will take care to bring some good engineers with you; and we have desired Mr. H. to consult you about all such matters, to whom we have communicated our thoughts in many particulars too tedious to have been written, and about which no certain resolutions can be taken, till we have heard again from your Highness.

Lord Aston to the Earl of Sunderland. It may be necessary to acquaint you with some disorders that have happened in this county. On Monday the 18th came the first news of the bishops being out on bail. The meaner sort seemed to understand it as a discharge and, though forbid, made bonfires. Where no opposition was made, nothing unusual followed, but at Lichfield, some endeavouring to prevent them, there happened a very great riot. All is quiet there now, and I suppose this post or the next some account will go from the magistrates to you of their proceedings. I enclose some depositions taken by myself and shall wait what you further order in the matter. I communicated the letter from the Council concerning the birth of our prince. I presume to remind you whether I may be permitted to grant Mr. Sneyd a deputation into the Lieutenancy on the reasons I have before presented to you.
