Scope and content

There is a scurvy report that Mr Solicitor-General has fallen ill at Worcester which the writer hopes is not true. If so, Owen will have had the news, for bad news is generally winged enough. When are the Flint Assizes? Ned Mostyn says that he is for the country very speedily. The affairs at Rome are not yet accommodated. The old man seems resolute and says he would rather resign than prejudice the rights of the Church. The town will have it that 'Hogen would be Mogen' and meditate mischief against us, but, though they may wish well, their horns are short. They may have North Holland wind, but the writer hopes that 'we' have as many ships as they. Soldiers who have gone away will not be 'our countrymen' according to a doctrine they have set on foot that a subject taking service under a former prince loses his allegiance without allowing any local allegiance. The Bishop of Oxford died; the Bishop of Hereford is said to be dead. Mr Heylyn, Mr Dodwell and the Warden of All Souls are named as competitors for Dr Lamphire's place of Hist. professor.
