Notes: In April 1649, the City of Oxford sent a petition to Parliament to deprive the University of some of its privileges, including the licensing of ale-houses and fining citizens; this official answer was produced on request by Gerard Langbaine, keeper of the Archives. The problem seems to have then faded away, but upon renewed difficulties some thirty years later, this edition was produced.
