Abstract

Letter dated April 20, 1671 (10 2mo. 1617 Old Style) from Roger Longworth in Lancaster Castle to James Harrison. He mentions Thomas Bond receiving ten pounds and fifty shillings at Lancaster but the rest is not yet paid. Longworth and his fellow prisoners wrote to the judges for more information on when they will be called to court. Longworth also mentions travel plans—possibly to London—after he is released.
