of us, that since we came to the helm of this republic, though the condition of our affairs be such at present, that they chiefly require our utmost diligence, care, and vigilancy at home, yet that we hold nothing more sacred, and that there is not any thing more determined by us, than, as much as in us lies, never to be wanting to the league concluded by our father with your majesty. To that end, we have taken care to send a fleet into the Baltic sea, with those instructions which our agent, to that purpose empowered by us, will communicate to your majesty ; whom God preserve in long safety, and prosper with success in the defence of his orthodox religion. From our Court at Westminster,

October 13, 1658.

RICHARD, Protector, To the most ferene and potent Prince,

CHARLES GUSTAVUS, King of the Swedes, Goths and Vandals, &c.
