to_o lay_v down_o your_o life_n in_o the_o field_n sir_n i_o have_v consider_v the_o agreement_n of_o the_o people_n that_o be_v before_o you_o and_o i_o be_o very_o jealous_a lest_o you_o shall_v betray_v your_o trust_n in_o it_o in_o as_o much_o as_o the_o kingly_a power_n be_v fall_v into_o your_o hand_n in_o give_v it_o up_o to_o the_o people_n for_o thereby_o you_o give_v up_o the_o trust_n commit_v to_o you_o and_o in_o so_o do_v you_o will_v prove_v yourselves_o more_o treacherous_a than_o they_o that_o go_v before_o you_o they_o be_v no_o way_n able_a to_o improve_v it_o without_o you_o you_o just_o blame_v the_o king_n for_o betray_v his_o trust_n and_o the_o parliament_n for_o betray_v they_o this_o be_v the_o great_a thing_n i_o have_v to_o say_v to_o you_o betray_v not_o you_o your_o trust_n i_o have_v yet_o another_o message_n to_o show_v you_o i_o know_v not_o what_o acceptance_n it_o may_v find_v with_o you_o yet_o i_o be_o content_a here_o it_o be_v let_v it_o find_v what_o acceptance_n it_o may_v i_o leave_v it_o with_o you_o the_o message_n be_v as_o follow_v dear_a sir_n have_v already_o find_v so_o free_a admission_n into_o your_o presence_n it_o have_v give_v i_o the_o great_a encouragement_n though_o more_o peculiarly_a the_o truth_n persuade_v i_o thereunto_o to_o present_v you_o with_o my_o thought_n in_o these_o follow_a line_n i_o be_o in_o divine_a pleasure_n make_v sensible_a of_o the_o might_n of_o the_o affair_n which_o lie_v upon_o you_o and_o the_o spirit_n of_o sympathy_n abide_v in_o i_o constrain_v i_o to_o groan_v with_o you_o in_o your_o pain_n you_o may_v remember_v i_o tell_v you_o the_o kingly_a power_n be_v undoubted_o fall_v into_o your_o hand_n which_o power_n be_v to_o punish_v evil_a doer_n and_o to_o

part_n before_o god_n and_o man_n you_o stand_v in_o the_o place_n of_o interpreter_n for_o many_o hard_a say_n present_v themselves_o to_o you_o and_o will_v do_v look_v for_o it_o wherefore_o see_v that_o you_o give_v unto_o man_n the_o thing_n that_o be_v they_o and_o unto_o god_n the_o thing_n that_o be_v he_o it_o be_v true_a indeed_o as_o unto_o man_n i_o know_v i_o appeal_v by_o the_o

thereby_o be_v the_o yoke_n take_v from_o your_o neck_n i_o mean_v the_o neck_n of_o the_o spirit_n and_o law_n which_o be_v the_o bond_n of_o your_o union_n that_o the_o holy_a life_n in_o it_o may_v not_o be_v profane_v it_o be_v free_a and_o can_v not_o be_v bind_v for_o the_o law_n of_o the_o spirit_n of_o life_n in_o christ_n jesus_n have_v free_v we_o from_o the_o law_n of_o sin_n and_o of_o
