A89430 Yet another word to the wise: shewing, that the lamentable grievances of the Parliaments friends in Cumberland and Westmerland. [sic] presented by their Commissioner, Mr. Iohn Musgrave, to the House of Commons above two years agoe, are so far yet from being redressed, that the House of Commons not only protecteth Mr. Richard Barwis, one of their owne members, from the law, being accused of high treason, as appeareth by the great charge against him in this treatise contained. As also against Sir Wilford Lawson, commander in chiefe of Cumberland, who betrayed that county into the enemies hands. ... But instead of doing justice either against them or other accused traytors to the common-wealth, they have most unjustly committed that worthy gentleman, Mr. John Musgrave, (their accuser and prosecuter to the Fleet prison) above these 12. moneths, ...
