Civil War. Collection of letters and state papers, apparently from the papers of John Pym, 1584-1643.

Collection of 28 letters and other documents, many written to John Pym and all concerned with military activities of the Parliamentary army during the English Civil War. Numerous writers request financial assistance, food, clothing, and arms for their soldiers, including Alexander Carew, who asks for money and arms to combat an uprising in Cornwall; Sir William Balfour, who requests back pay for his services as commissary and captain of a troop in Ireland and requests two months' advance for his soldiers, or else they will be unable to subsist; and William Jephson, who begs Pym to be as active for him in Parliament as his soldiers have been on the field, and who are now in rags without enough food to eat. Other letters report on threats of armed uprisings and on the movements of King Charles I as well as the movements of Queen Henrietta Maria at The Hague. The collection also contains a petition by the citizens of London to Parliament, asking that a voluntary levy be raised for the defense of the country, and that those who are able to contribute but do not be punished with fines and alien status; and a military order from the Earl of Northumberland and the Earl of Loudoun, followed by the reluctant reply on the same sheet.
