A SPEECH Made By the Earle of Tyrone to the Rebels in the woods.

HOvv it doth rejoyce me to s [...]e St. Patrick [...] Banner flourish, by noble and free spirits.

[Page] Hovv am I cloathed with admiration to see the noble actions by you so couragiously per­formed.

Goe on, goe on, brave spirits, and let the world tremble hearing of your undanted actions, and expert Chivalry.

Svvim, svvim, vnto your desires through Seas of blood, and let the Hereticks be the sole object of your hate: as yet you have done bravely, the God of Battell crovvning you with vnparallel'd victory.

As I said before, so I e [...]courage you againe to goe on, and daily delight my sence of seeing with bloody spectaeles: beare vpon your swords a bloody Ensigne, each point being covered with the heart of an Hereticke. It is not vn­knovvne to you all how my Father suffered, and how I was forced to fly: it is not vnknovvne to you all, hovv vvilling I am in your defence to lose my deerest and blood: it is not vnknovvne to you all vvhat paines I have taken in your de­fence. First leaving of Spaine to succour you. Secondly, by providing forces to assist you, and thirdly, what affection I have borne toward you. Wherefore as you have bin, so alw [...]is be valiant, for my owne part I will out dare the bullets of your enemies, and will spit in the face of all co­wards which are amongst you, I spoke it not be­cause I feared your hitherto continued noble acts vvould cease from practice, but the more nobly to encourage you.

[Page] Then turned he himselfe about to Sir Hugh Oneal [...] and spake thus unto him.

For your owne part Sir, I shall owe my future fortunes to your service, or rather friendship; for by you J live, by you I am in safety, to con­clude, by you I hope to attaine unto that, which by my foes heretofore I was put by.

Wherefore as you have bin, so continue▪ so may you command him hereafter. which here­tofore hath bin terrified by those, which we now will bend our forces against.

Those vvhich have debarred our friends of their accustomed freedome, and made them more then tributary slaves.

Wherefore take my words, as spoken from a friend, fight couragionsly, and liue famous eter­nally: consider that Religion urgeth you unto it: consider that freedome from bondage ur­geth you vnto it: consider that your intimate friend intreats you vnto it, who desires to live no longer then you may be happy.

The place of most of the Rebels habitation heing Karloh in the County of Dublin.

THe rebels, most of them J mean at this pre­sent time have their habitation in Karloh, five miles from the City of Dublin: in the south [Page] part of Ireland, many villages thereabout they have burned downe by fire.

Very strong they are, and will not easily bee repelled, and have many Engines of war. At the first comming to that place, they shot downe most of the houses, the place now is their owne, and are like to keepe that, and they will have many other places, unlesse sudden ayd, which the Protestants pray may speedily bee sent vnto them; else are they like to be utterly destroyed and England lose its priviledge of Trafficke there.

Verses made by a s [...]uldier.

Come send forth ayd, doe that without excuse,
And then reforme you of every foule abuse,
you shall have time, no doubt, then make good speed
Its good to stench the wound that still doth bleed.
When rebels hunt, and seeke revenge in bloud,
Its good to haste, their force may be with stood,
And by collecting of our force together,
We doubt but Christ will send us safely thither;
The winds shall serve the waters calme, shall be,
If we this thing performe with courage free,
picke hence those Lidgers proud papisticall,
They still pro [...]ect, they seeke to worke our fall:
They blaze such rumours, and such miste they cast,
To hinder us to circumvent our haste:
That so they may obtaine a longer time
To bring in forces to subvert our climbe.
Now haste with speed, now let it acted bee,
presse souldiers now with courage bold and free.
