ANÉCDOTE of CROMWELL.
HEN the affairs of Charles I. were in their wane in all the Southern counties, the Marquis of Newcastle's prudence gave them fome credit in the North. His refidence was at York, where he engaged two gentlemen of the country to act under him as Lieutenants. Sir Richard Graham was one; whofe commiffion under the Marquis is ftill in the hands of the family. As Sir Richard was both an active man, and much attached to the Royal caufe, he entered into it with all that vigour, which ability, infpired by inclination could exert; and did the King more effectual service than perhaps any private gentleman in those parts.
