IX. 37. Letter from the King to the Lord Mayor and Court of
Aldermen, complaining of the conduct, in some of the Wards of the
City, of certain disaffected persons, who desired to make choice of
those to the next Common Council who were known opposers of all
regular government, both in Church and State, and directing that
especial care should be taken in the several Wards that a peaceable
and quiet election be made, and that choice be had of persons in
every way well affected to the established Government; if otherwise,
His Majesty would be compelled unwillingly to enforce a change of
such elections. He also desired that the persons who might be
appointed to other offices should be well affected to the State; and
with this object that a Copy of the Letter should be sent to the several
13th December, 1661.
