Summary
"This volume offers a selection from the many documents which army secretary William Clarke recorded in one of the rudimentary shorthand systems of his day. Clarke was secretary to successive commanders-in-chief, most notably George Monck. It is a fundamental source for students of the English Civil War and Interregnum. The material consists mainly of the political intelligence which was being passed at every level, both official and personal, from informed sources in London and elsewhere to English army headquarters in Scotland during the 1650s. The text is fully annotated and appendices include a list of correspondents. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
