This, Carey's autobiography, was first published at London in 1759 by the Earl of Cork and Orrery. Birch had published in 1749 the portion relating to the death of Queen Elizabeth (Historical View of the Negotiations from 1592 to 1617). Carey was employed in the public service in the Netherlands and in Scotland and Normandy, and he conveyed, by three days' riding, news of Elizabeth's death to James VI of Scotland, and followed Charles to Spain in 1623.
