The Parliaments care for the citie of London, in purging the Tower from conspiracies. With the relation of a box that was found neere the Temple, wherein was inclosed a letter from Tyrone the arch-rebell in Ireland, to Colonel Lunsford late lieutenant of the Tower. Which letter was delivered to the Parliament, to be read in both Houses: and herein is expressed the copy of the same letter concerning forces both of horse and foot that Lunsford should gather against this city, and that Tyrone would assist him, and that the Kings both of France and Spaine would conjoyne their forces with them against this kingdome. As also shewing the vigilant care of the Parliament for the security of the city: and having some intelligence of divers labourers at worke in the Tower, carrying up powder and other amunition to the bulwark and high tower, sent for Colonell Biron, lieutenant thereof; who refusing to come, was sent for by a strong guard and the Knight of the black Rod.
