Fairfax, Thomas Fairfax, Baron, 1612-1671. Short memorial of some things to be cleared during my command in the army, [mid 17th century].

Short memorial of some things to be cleared during my command in the army, [mid 17th century].

Manuscript on paper, in a single hand, of an explanation of Fairfax's actions "which seemed to the world most questionable" during the civil war between King Charles I and Parliament. He includes justification of the execution of Royalist commanders Sir Charles Lucas and Sir George Lisle; and declares that, although all the Army's actions were carried out in his name, he "never gave his free consent to anything they did" "concerning papers and declarations carried out in his name, from the time that they declared their usurped authority." The piece is followed by "A Short Memorial of the Northern Actions during the war there, from 1642 till 1644," in the same hand.
