A true and perfect relation of the first and victorious skirmish between the army under the conduct of the Right Honourable the Lord Brooks, the Lord Grey, Collonel Hampden, Collonel Hollis, Collonel Chomley, and others members of the honorable Houses of Parliament; consisting of 6000 foot, and 300 horse, with nine peeces of ordnance. And the army under the command of the Earle of Northampton, Lord Savill, Lord Paget, Captain Legg, and Captain Clerk, consisting of 5000 horse, and 300 foot, with two peeces of ordnance. In which are taken prisoners the said Captain Legg, and Captain Clark with seven other cavaliers, three slain with five horses, many wounded, and the rest fled in Southamfield, ten miles from Coventry in Warwickshire, on Tuesday the 23 of this instant August; the skirmish beginning about eight of the clock in the morning, and continuing for the space of four houres, or thereabouts, as it was declared to the honorable House of Commons, August 25 1642. To prevent false relations of Dunsmore battaile there being no such thing.
