Treatise on Christian Doctrine: Compiled from the Holy Scriptures Alone (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Treatise on Christian Doctrine: Compiled From the Holy Scriptures Alone
The Orders of the Council of State during the Interregnum, brought to light and arranged by the industry of Mr. Lemon, form one of the most interesting series of documents relative to English History at present in existence. They contain the daily transactions of the executive government in England from 1648-9 to September 1658, and are particularly valuable from the period of the dissolution of the Long Parliament in 1653, to the death of Cromwell in September 1658; as during the greater part of that time the Council of State, under the Protector, combined both the executive and legislative functions of government, and as these books are the authentic, but hitherto nu known records of their daily proceedings. It is greatly to be desired that the attention of the Record Commissioners should be drawn to these valuable. Documents, and perhaps it might be advisable that a fair transcript of them should be lmade, under their sanction.
