Parliament obstructed by Officers of the Army.

THIS Day the late principal Officers of the Army, whose Commissions were vacated, drew up Forces in and about Westminster, obstructed all Passages both by Land and Water, stopped the Speaker in his Way, and placed and continued Guards upon and about the Doors of the Parliament-House; and so interrupted the Members from coming to the House, and attending their Service there.
