Another Letter dated at the Castle of Dublin, Novemb. 5. 1641. sent by the Lord chiefe Justices of Ireland.

THe Calamity of the English and Protestants in Ireland is great, and the mischiefe that the Rebels have done, are many, and so much the more ought to be severely executed, by reason of a Proclamation which the Rebels have put out, commanding all those that are either English or Protestants, to be gone away, immediately after the publishing thereof, or otherwise to take what punishments the Rebels shall inflict up­on them, and execute with all cruelty, by cutting of the heads of all those that remaine, and by burning their Villages, and putting both man and woman, and child to the Sword, a great number of the Rebels did assault Tredath, and plundered the Towne, committing many outrages therein; as namely, they entred violent­ly in a house of Dr. Vshers there, now Lord Primate of Ireland, and carryed away 4000 l. in plate and mo­ney, but we hope shortly they will be suppressed, for some forces from Scotland, is come to assist us, they are now in the North parts of the Kingdome.
