Common Council.

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 Wards.
13th December, 1661.
