 +“Sir, — Here is great strugling, and much opposition by the adverse party, to the publike peace of these Counties; for sir Philip Musgrave, Col. Stradling, (The Governor of Carlisle) and the rest of the Cavalry in the parts adjacent, have had severall meetings in Westmereland for the arming and putting themselves in a posture of defence, and have summoned in the Inhabitants to make their appearance at Kendall Heath; upon the 13th. of this instant May, which accordingly they did, where Sir Philip Musgrave and Col. Stradling pro-pounded severall Propositions unto them, touching their designs and engagement tor their dread sovereign the King; which done, the Malignant party with a shrill echo, said they would live and dy with them, for the restoring of his Majesty to his just rights, and setling the peace of the Kingdome; and as they were drawing off from the Randevouz, Major Sanderson and Major Cholmley, with a party of Horse fell upon them, and 
 +after a short conflict, rescued divers honest men of the country, whom they had apprehended for not obeying the summons, and took divers prisoners, routing the rest. They also disarmed divers, and admitted them their liberty who promised not to ingage upon any such summons for the future-- Col. Stradling was in danger but escaped. In this conflict was taken about 300 prisoners, two Colours, which had this Motto in letters of Gold 
 +For GOD
