king_n at_o all_o vote_v no_o more_o address_n to_o be_v make_v to_o he_o but_o have_v keep_v up_o a_o army_n to_o over_o rule_v the_o kingdom_n etc._n etc._n to_o this_o i_o answer_v they_o have_v sit_v long_o and_o with_o great_a difficulty_n they_o have_v endure_v much_o take_v great_a pain_n yet_o can_v effect_v that_o which_o we_o desire_v the_o reason_n be_v because_o there_o be_v some_o join_v with_o they_o in_o the_o work_n like_o sheba_n son_n of_o bichri_fw-la 20.1_o 2_o sam._n 20.1_o that_o will_v not_o have_v a_o king_n nor_o peace_n other_o like_o the_o revolt_a promiscuous_a

no_o parliament_n of_o england_n ever_o do_v before_o they_o then_o no_o marvel_n if_o the_o work_n be_v long_o but_o to_o say_v that_o thing_n be_v worse_o than_o they_o be_v be_v a_o scandal_n it_o be_v true_a thing_n be_v very_o ill_a and_o much_o the_o worse_o by_o the_o complainer_n calumny_n and_o seditious_a petition_n thwart_v one_o another_o and_o whereas_o you_o say_v they_o have_v seek_v themselves_o you_o must_v distinguish_v between_o the_o parliament_n and_o particular_a man_n that_o some_o man_n in_o parliament_n have_v be_v mere_a self-seekers_a i_o with_o sorrow_n of_o

the_o house_n to_o make_v no_o more_o address_n to_o the_o king_n be_v true_a because_o he_o may_v see_v he_o refuse_v their_o proposal_n they_o intend_v to_o settle_v the_o kingdom_n without_o he_o but_o that_o vote_n be_v only_o restrictive_a no_o more_o address_n without_o consent_n of_o parliament_n yet_o as_o parliament_n shall_v see_v cause_n they_o may_v notwithstanding_o that_o vote_n
