A second narrative of the late Parliament (so called.) :
Wherein, after a brief reciting some remarkable passages in the former narrative, is given an account of their second meeting, and things transacted by them; as also, how the Protector (so called) came swearing by the living God, and dissolved them, after two or three weeks sitting. With some quæries sadly proposed thereupon. Together with an account of three and forty of their names, who were taken out of the House, and others that sate in the other House, intended for a House of Lords, but being so unexpectedly disappointed, could not take root; with a brief character and description of them. Also, a vindication of Mr. John Portmans late prisoner in the Tower, from those false aspersions cast upon him by the court pamphleter, and how the Parliament hath since voted his imprisonment illegal, and ordered his enlargement. All humbly presented to publique view. By a friend to the good old cause of justice, righteousnesse, the freedom and liberties of the people, which hath cost so much bloud and treasure, to be carried on in the late wars, and are not yet settled. To which is added a third narrative, from another hand, corrected: being a short view of the quarrell between the King and Parliament. Together with the present estate of the nations interest in respect of government.
