Letter from the parliament to the lieutenant general anent the other prisoners

23 May 1650

Right honourable,

The parliament, being about to take course with the whole prisoners which were taken in the late rebellion in the north, have ordained me to signify to you that it is their pleasure you send over all of them which are not yet come, and therefore these are in your name to desire that with all convenient diligence you hasten here the whole remainder, both those taken at the battle at Dunbeath and at all other places, and to send with them sufficient guards least any should escape. Which expecting were remain,

Your affectionate servant, [...], Edinburgh, 23 May 1650
