Petition (7  November  1826) Whalley, Edward, et al. To the supream authoritie of the Parliament of the Common-wealth of England. The humble petition of the officers of the army. Sheweth, that wee having had divers meetings to seeke the Lord, and to speak of the great things God hath done for this common-wealth, it hath been set upon our hearts as our duty to offer such things, on behalf of this nation, as in our judgements and consciences might tend to the peace and well being thereof, and therefore in pursuance of the same, have with one consent thought it fit humbly to present to you the particulars following, which wee desire may be taken into consideration. 1652
