[Page 370]

To the KINGS most Excellent Majesty.
The humble Petition of divers Lords, Knights, and Gentlemen, Inhabitants of the six Counties of Northwales, whose names are subscribed,


THat your Petitioners during the Vicissitudes of eighteen years troubles, having suffered as much and repined as little as any part of your said Majesties Realm have done, do now esteem it the glory of their first publick Address that it is to your Majesty the most Gracious of Princes.

Excess of joy hath oft struck men dumbe; but we who now carry our hearts in our mouthes, may as well live and not breathe, as not profess our selves enlivened by your Majesties return unto us: That having bin the end of our constant prayers, is now the fruition of those longing hopes which rendered our sufferings tollerable, and preserved us to this time to pray for your Majesties long and happy Raign.

And as your Majestie hath attained the possession of your Crowns, by the glorious conquest of an Heroick patience, so shall we humbly endeavour to follow your Princely example, by so far disowning all (even just) Ani­mosities as shall we hope in a peculiar sence render us your Majesties most obedient subjects.

Yet we deny our selves the least harsh or revengefull thought for those Oppressions we so long and signally have layn under, we are not able to digest the detestable and hor­rid murther of your Royal Father, our once most Gra­cious Soveraign, in averting the guilt of whose blood all are concerned, who have no mind to draw it upon themselves.

Your Petitioners therefore humbly pray, That not onely such [Page 371] of those principally engaged in that execrable murther, as to your Majesty and the honourable Parliament shall seem me [...]s, be forth with delivered over to publick Justice: But that also such others as concurred therein, or procured and prom [...] ­ [...] etitions to bring on that horrid Tryal, or other Addres­ses to own the same (and have not since given early testimony of their unforced repentance) may be diligently taken notice of, and disabled to bear any office of trust Civil or Military in your Majesties Realme, that so the lives of your Majesties most loyal subjects may no more come into the cruel hands of Blood thirsty men.

On Wednesday the sixth instant, the B [...]liffs, Burgesses, and commonalty of the Town of Ipswich, accompanied by M. Sicklem [...]r [...], Captain Sparrow, Mr. Keen, and divers other Gentlemen, attended his Majesty, and presented him with six hun­dred pieces of gold from the Town of Ipswich, which his Majesty was graciously pleased to accept.

The same day the Earl of Cleaveland brought about two hundred Gentlemen, ma­ny of them Officers formerly serving under him, the others Gentlemen that rid in his troop to meet his Majesty to kiss his Majesties hand, who kneeling down in the m [...]tted Gallery, his Majesty was pleased to walk along, and give every one of them the honour to kiss his hand, which favour was so highly resented by them that they could no longer stifle their joy, but as his Majesty was walking out (a thing, though unusual at Court) they brake out into a loud shouting.

On Thursday Mr. VVall [...]p, the Deputy, Steward and Burgesses of the City of West­minster in their Gowns, being conducted by Mr. Gerard, a member of Parliament for that City, waited upon his Majesty, and presented a Petition, wherein they desired that his Majesty would be graciously pleased to bestow the Office of Lord High Steward of Westminster on his Excellency the Lord General Monck M. Gerard made a short speech to his Majesty, leaving it to the Steward to inlarge, who delivered himself so rhetorically, and with such due and awful respect to Majesty, that he hath deservedly gained a very high reputation in the Court, his Majesty returned a most gracious answer, and afforded to a [...]l of them the honour to kiss his hand.

The Queen Christina of Swedeland is making ready to go about the beginning of the next month, to give some or­ders about her own Affairs, and is to return again hither.

Cardinal Grimaldi is arrived here, and lodged in the Pa­lace Mazarin, Cardinal Mancini having yielded to him the best lodgings. They say he comes to speak to the Pope of the business of Comadico and Correggio, mentioned in the Forty two Article of the Peace, and that he brings the blew ribbon to the Duke of Bracciano from the King of France. The Cardinal Azolini and Pio, are said to take the French party. The business of the Carmelites is composed, the Pope having released the Provincial of Provence.

St. John de Luz, June 1.

Y [...]sterday at the fourth Conference, the two chief Mini­ste [...]s signed the Treaty for regulating of the limits of Rou­sillon, whereby the V [...]guery at Constans, the County of Carol, and 35 villages of Cerdagne are to remain to the French.

After the Conference, the Cardinal Mazarin gave a sumptuous collation to Don Lewes D'Haro and his retinue, with a fine consort of Voyces, and all kind of musical In­struments, that played two hours together, during which, many French and Spanish Songs were sung, both striveing [Page 378] to shew their joy of the reunion of the two Crowns. Se­veral Expresses are sent to cause the French Garrisons to go out of Roses, Cap de Quieres, Belver and Seau d'Urgel, and to put those places in the hands of the Spaniards. Several Barks have been sent from the harbor of Ayde to carry to that of Vendres in Languedoc, the Artillery, Ammunitions, and provisions that are in those places. The Regiment of Champagne that was in Roses, is commanded to go into the Bur [...]onois, those of Harcourt, French Anjou, of the Galleys, Va [...]llac, Estissac, Coign [...]c and Guienne to Peri­gueux, Sarlat and Bergerac.

Paris June 11.

Though by Letters from St. John de Luz, we have an ac­count of the several days appointed for the Ceremonies of the Kings marriage, yet we hear not yet that any of them be accomplished, and the Marquis de Valavoir, who came from Court the third instant, such that no day was yet certainly appointed for that. The Government of Champagne hath been bestowed by the King on the Count of Soissons; that of Bourbonois on the Moquis d'Humieres, and that of A [...]guesmor [...]es on the Marquis of Var [...]es,

His Majesty hath made a present of 55000 crowns to the Marquis of Richelieu, which are to be put in the ha [...]s of Mounsieur le [...]ellier, to see them well disposed.

St. Sebastian, the same date.

The 27 of the last month, the Infanta was above an hour upon a Belconi, in the Street where the Procession passed, and was seen there, with great satisfaction by all the French that were present.

The King of Spain is to go to morrow with that Princess to Fontarabia, and from thence to the Isle, where the two Courts will meet.

Luxemburgh the same date.

The 25 of the last month there was a great fire at Arlon, which continued all the next day, and consumed 240 houses, besides the Parish Church, and the Covent of the Carmelits, but the fire was quenched by the resolution of some Officers of the Garison, when it was come already within half a foot of the Powders, which would have spoiled the whole Town.

Pontoise June 10.

The fourth instant the general Assembly of the Clergy of France begun to sit here, with the usual Ceremonies in such occasion.

Another from St. John de Luz, June 2.

The 27 of the last month, their M [...]jesties performed their Devotions at the Church of St. John, and assisted to the Procession with Monsieur the Kings Brother, Madam­moiselle, and the two Princesses her Sisters, the Bishop of Bayonne having officiated in the presence of many other Prelates. In the afternoon the King sent the Marquis de Saucourt to complement the King of Spain and the Infanta, who received him very favorably. The 31. the Cardi [...]al Mazarin and Don Lewes D'Haro had a f [...]urth conference, where they happily ended the remaining difficulties, so that all is now ready for the Kings marriage, the King of Spain having sent word, that without faile he will be to morrow at Fon [...]a [...]abi [...], to see the first ceremony celebrated there on the Thursday following, and the next day after will repair to the Isle of the conference, where this court will be the fifth in­stant. After which the new Queen will be brought either for [Page 380] the consummation of the Solemnity, on the sixth, in the Church of St. John, which is prepared for that end.

Stockholm, May 13.

This day the Corps of our late deceased King arrived here, being accompanied by our young King, the Queen, and all the Senators and Grandees of the Kingdom, and was depo­sited in the Cathedtal church, until all things be made ready for his funeral. Among other preparations that are making for the same, a Coffin all of silver curiously wrought, with the representations of all the warlike exploits and atchieve­ments of the said King, is preparing, which will be worth above 6000 l. sterling. The 4000 men lately levied here, have been lately mustered, and expect nothing but the orders for their march.

Elsenore, May 15.

Since the taking of the ten Swedish ships by the Hollan­ders, the Mediators have not given any v [...]sit to the Dutch Commissioners, nor received any from them; and these seem to be somewhat perplexed how to palliate that affair. The said Mediators have written a Letter to the said Com­missioners about it, but received no answer upon it. They offered to carry the said ships into a Danish harbor, to have them there adjudged lawful prize; but the King of Den­mark hath hindred it, not being willing to meddle with that business, which he doth not account to be just. The Queen of Denmark hath given order for preparing a stately Banquet, where at she intends to invite all the Mediators and Commissioners, to have occasion therein to reconcile the Dutch with the rest of them.

Hague, Iune 11.

Prince Palatine Rupert came hither lately, thinking to have met here the King of England, but he was gone before, therefore he went back to his Quarters, having had leave to he absent only for Twelve days. The Princess Royal is going to Amsterdam with the Prince of Or [...]nge her Son, where they are to be gallantly entertained by the Magistrates of that place.

From the Isle of the Conference June 4. S. N.

Last Wednesday the 2 Instant about 7 a clock at night the King of Spain, with the Infanta and all the Grandees of his Court arived at Fon [...]rabia, many Trumpets sounding before hi [...], and at the noyse of all the Canon and the shot of the Musqueteers of that place, who gave fire above an houre to­gether. In the mean time the said King went into the Castle of that Town, prepared before for his reception and hung with very rich Hangings, Till 9 of the clock his Majesty and his Noblemen refreshed themselves, being extreamly weary of their long March, in a very rainy day. About that time his Majesty called all his Grandees to him, and in their presence demanded of the In­fant [...] her Renunciation to the Crown of Spain, which she very willingly [...]re under her hand, I know nothing of consequence transacted there, besides [Page 382] that night. Yesterday the 3 Instant his Catholick Majesty came to the Infanta's Lodgings to let her know that she was to be married that day, desiring her to be ready about eleven clock to goe wi [...]h him to the chief Church of that place. About one a clock in the afternoon the Bishop of Pampolune having been in­formed that the King of Spain was comming, took upon him Pontificall Habits, and the Crosse and the Pastoral Hook being carryed before him, the Musick going before, he came to the Church doore, to receive his Majesty, who at the same time alighting from his Co [...]ch, was conducted by the said Bishop (the Infanta being at his left hand, both under a Canopy with Curtains on all sides, but that which looked towards the Alter) The Ki [...]g and the Infanta were no sooner upon their Knees, but the Bishop began a little or low Masse, which was very simple, very low and a very short one, during which the Bishop of Frejus took his place by the Patriarch of the Indias, being bo [...]h respective witnesses for their respective Princes. The Masse ended, the Bishop put off his Priestly Garments and took on the Episcopal Robes, and coming down from the Alter, drew neere to the Canopy under which the King of Spain and the Infanta were; all this while Don Lewes D'Aro was behind the Canopy, but then coming near, and having made a very low obe [...]ence to the sai [...] King and the Infanta, as Ambassador for the most Christian King, he presented to the Bishop the proxy he had of the said King to marry the Infanta, which being read publickly and accepted of the In­fanta f [...]ll to the King her Fathers feet, where after many reciprocal Tears for their near separation: that Princess assured him of her constant and perpe­tual submission, and demanded hi [...] Blessing, which he gave her with many kisses, which notwithstanding his manly resolution, drew again a flood of Tears from his eyes.

Then the said Infanta having given her consent to the mar [...]iage, as well as Don Lewes d'Aro, in the most Christian Kings name, after the usual words pronounced by the Bishop, the said Don Lewis put on a rich ring upon the Infantas finger, and the rest of the ceremonies being ended, the King of Spain looking how upon his Daughter as upon a Foreign Queen, gave her the right hand, and conducted her to the Coach. There was a costly Dinner pre­pared, the particulars hereof you may have fully hereafter, but I cannot o­mit what I hear for certain, that the King of France came there incognito, and was very much made of by the King of Spain, who assured him of his resolution for a perpetual peace and amity, for a token of which he gave him his Daughter, the preciousest Jewel of his own eyes, and after their [...] ­tual Oaths for the performance of what they were agreed before, towards that peace and Amity, in such a solemn manner as the like is not to be found recorded, the most Christian King retired. Madamoiselle was there also in­cognito, and very much made of, though no notice taken of her Quality.

This day, the Queen Mother, with Mounsieur the Kings Brother went to the Palace of the Conference, whether the King of Spain is to bring the Queen his Daughter, himself incognito. To morrow and the two next days, the two Courts are to meet again. The personal marriage is to be made, on Monday or Tuesday next, and Thursday the whole Court is to return towards Paris. I must not omit that these two days there will many several private visits between the two Kings and the Queens, besides the publick [...] and that the new Queen will be brought hither on Monday next at night.

We have a particular accounts of all the Jewels bestowed on the Infanta by the most Christian King; being very considerable and large we must [...]ea [...]e or the next.
