 +
 +Tuesday May 29th
 +
 +A considerable party of Colonel Nortons forces marched forth (as this day we heard) to execute a designe on Langford House. The horse were commanded by Captaine Simbacke, Captaine Boshworth, Captain Gerton, and the foot were led by young Murford the lively image of his father. Our forces marching near the house being confident that the enemy would sally forth upon them, had placed an Ambuscadoe in the Hedges, and the enemy according to there expectation sallying forth, our forces by degrees retired until they had drawn them within their ambush, at which time giving a full charge upon them we took all the forces of the enemy prisoner, amongst which were Col. Griffeth (sic) the Governor of the said House, one Captaine Lieutenant, one Cornet and some other Officers: There were taken in all three score and fourteen prisoners. These men being taken, we are in good hope to be suddenly Masters of the House, for we are advertised that there are now left not above twenty men to defend it. In the House (we heare) is good store of provision and some Moveables that are worth the owning.
