I just thought you all might be interested to know that I've put a full copy of one of Wardlaw's letters to Parliament on the website.

You can find it via the regimental history page by clicking on the link shown in the text.

Enjoy!

Finally got around to reading this. Note that he makes reference to keeping the town for King and Parliament - does this make him a moderate do we think?

In 1643 didn't most parliamentarians still believe they were fighting to rid the King of his "malignant advisors" (with notable exceptions e.g. Pym, Ludlow, Sydney etc.) It sounds like Wardlaw was very much treading the middle road.
