Abstract:
Manuscript on paper, in a single hand, of the diary of a dissenting divine living in Ireland who records, with close interest, the progress of the Dutch War and other domestic and foreign activities, including a famine in Ireland, the activities of Louis II de Bourbon Prince de Conde, persecutions against nonconformists in England, and notes about the American colonies. On November 16, 1675, he writes, """"I first heard of a War begun in N. England. Our first report is that the French joine with the Indians...A famine feared in N.
