Wherein (amongst divers of His Majesties late illegall proceedings) is discovered, how severall commissions under the Kings authority have been granted to many profest papists (herein nominated) for places of command in this war, with power to raise men and armes, which in sundry places they have performed. Also how Sir Iohn Hinderson, and Colonell Cockram, were sent to Hamburg and Denmarke, to raise forces and in other forraigne parts, to bring into this kingdome. With the names of some who have beene proclaimed rebels in Ireland, now in great favour with his Maiestie. For which and other reasons they are resolved to the uttermost of their power, with the hazard of their lives and fortunes to defend the truth, against the popish army, and all that shall joyne with them in the prosecution of this wicked designe.
