Marquess of Newcastle continues to siege Hull

In Lincolnshire on September 28 at 11:55 pm

28 Sep 1643 (Thu) || For the siege of Hull, or rather the blocking up of it; its prosecuted by my Lord Newcastle, and if reliefe and supplies come not, or the enemy be not busied another way; time may gaine the greatest and strongest Hold that is, but we hope the Marquisse will be busied ere long some other way. As for Colonell Cromwell, we do not beleeve what is said of his enemies, that he is routed or taken prisoners, or that as yet any action hath been betwixt them: we hope my Lord Manchester will in short time be considerable, and that he will be in Lincolnshire within fourteen dayes to joyne with Colonell Cromwell. || John Dillingham – The Parliament Scout (P)
