In my last I acquainted your Lordship with a design then undertaken by my Lord Lisse, for the reliefe of the Lady Ofaly, which his Lordship hath prosecuted with so much judgment and good successe, that not onely her Ladyship is put into a condition of sub­sistance, in despight of what the Rebels were or are like to be able to doe, but upon intelligence given him, he hath approved his first intentions, and taken in a Towne called Trim, from whence his Lordship sent hither a partie of Horse, desiring to be enabled to follow his good fortune, by the sending to him one troope of Horse more, and 1200. foot, which is condesended unto, and the troopes will be sent home on Saturday next, no man can observe his gal­lant inclinations, attended with his suitable events, with greater delight than I doe, Nor shall be more ready to serve him to ward accomplishment of all his undertakings.
