Isaac Dorislaus (1595-1649) Diplomat had been sent by Cromwell to Holland to prepare with Walter Strickland, the resident at the Hague, a scheme for a peace between the two Republics!. Royalist Refugees who had fled to Holland with the exiled Charles II were incensed by his presence, so shortly after the execution of Charles I they suceeded in assassinating him at the second attempt. Issued separately as a supplement to the Statutes, but numbered for inclusion in the annual volume.
