If, until the new Governor shall have taken his oath of office, neither prayers in Churches [should be offered, on his behalf,] nor despatches from hence be addressed to him, it would "preserve a decency" which Lord Ossory would be glad of, but the denial of which will not afflict him.

As to that part of the Archbishop's letter of February 23 which relates to Tories and Conventicles, the only present answer the Duke has to make is that he early laid the matter of Conventicles & their consequences before the King.

The King's gracious expressions upon the Duke's dismissal from the Government have been such, as make the Duke less surprised at the recall, than satisfied with the thanks.

... They are no friends to the Duke of York, howsoever they came to be his servants, who have stopped some eight hundred certificates [in the Court of Claims at Dublin], by caveats issued on H.R.H's behalf. The thing is unreasonable and unplausible ...

... The computation of the King's debt & of the means of discharge, will doubtless be of use to the Lord Robartes, & the Duke will take a due opportunity of furnishing him with them. In the mean time, Lord Ossory is not to hold himself as the Duke's deputy, or as Lord Robartes' deputy, but as the King's ...

... The King is persuaded that ... "a Parliament & nothing else ... will remedy ... [the necessities of the time]. And those who have least to do in the present counsels will not only be the most safe, but the most popular. For the Duke of Bucks, I am most confident he not only undervalues but hates the King's person, and his brother's ; and has designs apart, - if not aimed at the ruin of them both". ...

Thinks it not amiss to give some account of the reasons why the writer has turned Lord Meath's ridiculous proceedings in relation to him, into a serious complaint: - (1) The dignity of an Earl, & the name of Councillor, gives a seeming weight (to those who do not know the man) to his "Articles"; (2) The Council, the writer can expose him & his Articles to the derision they are so open to; (3) It is of some relief to our melancholly to put a farce upon the stage ...

Has opposed - all he could - the farming of the arrears of Revenue; but will now let that affair take its fortune. ...

The Lord Lieutenant ... never, or very rarely, appears either in Council or Committee when Irish affairs are under consideration; expecting, the writer thinks, that all should be prepared, without his pains; - to the end, perhaps that hereafter he may blame his "Instructions". ...
