Sir Edward Seymour (1633-1708), the "E.S." to which these letters are directed, was Speaker of the House and a well-known Royalist. The postscript on pages 29-30 prints "The prayer of King Charles, stiled A Prayer in time of captivity" beside, in a parallel column, "The Prayer of Pamela (to an heathen deity) being under imprisonment," taken from Sir Philip Sideney's "Arcadia." The second letter attacks Richard Hollingworth (1639?-1701), another ardent Royalist. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
