Abstract

Letter dated May 11, 1670 (May 1, 1670 Old Style) from Phineas Pemberton to his father, Ralph Pemberton. He tells his father about his recent imprisonment in Lancaster Castle, that he does not know when he will come home, and being met with treatment "something harsh & cruel." Despite being told to not attend a meeting in town, Phineas intends to hold a meeting with two fellow Friends imprisoned alongside him, Margaret Fell and Francis Dunn: Initially, they were to be tried at a court session on the second Tuesday after Easter, but lack of judges postponed the trial until the 10th day of this month (May 20 New Style). It is accompanied by a facsimilie written by Caroline Pemberton.
