We have had my Lord of Ormond before us. We could not yet get him to answer directly, whether he would obey the king's award or no. After we had endured his importunity and impertinency, and yet let him down to this, that his Majesty's award was not only just and within his submission, but in his favour, we concluded in few words. That the award must be obeyed, and if he did refuse or impugn the execution of it in Ireland, he was to be punished by the justice of Ireland : if he did murmur or scandalize it here, or trouble his Majesty any more, he was to be punished in England. Then he asked whether he might be gone. For that, we told him, his Majesty's pleasure was to be known.
Sir Robert Mansell hath promised to bring in his summary account this day sevennight. God preserve and prosper you.
Your lordship's most obliged friend and faithful servant,Fr. Verulam, Canc.
