Exod. 1x. 16, 17
And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee

up, for to Shem in thee my power, and that my
name may be declared throughout all the Earth.
As yet exalteft thou thy self against my People ?

T

HE Marquis of Argyle, who did not believe that
the King would ever have ventur'd into Scotland
upon the conditions he had sent, was surprised
with the account the Commissioners had given

him, that his Majesty resolv'd to Embark the "next day; that he would leave all his Chaplains, and his "ocher Servants behind him, and only deferr'd to take the “Covenant himfelf till he came thither, with a resolution to "facisfy the Kirk if they press’d it. Thereupon he immedi-Argyle ately dispatched away another Vessel with new Propositions, sendo nen which the Commissioners were to infift upon, and not to con- Propofitiones,

which mißsco fent to the King's coming into that Kingdom, without He

she King likewise consented to those. But that Velfel met not with che King's Fleet, which, that it might avoid that of the Parliament, wbich attended to intercept the King, had held its course more Northward, where there are good Harbours; and fo had put into a Harbour near Sterlin, that is, within a days Journey of it, but where there was no Town nearer chan that for his Majesty's reception, or where there was any accommodation even for very ordinary Passengers.

FROM Chence notice was sent to the Council of the King's The King arrival : the first welcome he receiv'd, was a new demand arriver in that he would sign the Covenant himself, before he fet his Scotland. Vol. III. Part 2.
