SPEECH III. To the First Protectorate Parliament, 12

Sept. 1654 . . . . . .

Cannot have the Foundations of Government sub-
mitted to debate in this Assembly. A free Parlia.
ment they ; but he also, in virtue of whom they sit,
must be an unquestioned Protector. His history
since he entered on these Public Struggles; Dis-
missal of the Long Parliament; Abdication of the
Little Parliament; Protectorship, on what founded,
by whom acknowledged. To proceed no farther, till
they acknowledge it.

SPEECH IV. Dissolution of the First Protectorate Par-

liament, 22 Jan. 1654-5 . . .

Regrets that they have not communicated with
him : he was not unconcerned with them ; has been
struggling and endeavouring for them, keeping Peace
round them ;-does not know, on their part, whether
they have been alive or dead. Of trees that foster
only things poisonous under their shadow. Of dis-
turbances, once well asleep, awakened into new peril-
ous activity during these debates. Necessary that
they be dissolved.
