Descripción

Manuscript in ink, one page (190 x 146mm), 11 lines, with short endorsement on verso in another hand (quite possibly that of Sidney himself); slightly waterstained and dusty, but generally fine. A splendid little manuscript, uniting the royalist and playwright Sir William Killigrew (1606-95) with the republican martyr Algernon Sidney: Killigrew acknowledges having received 'the summe of ten pounds Lawfull Englishe monny from Colonle Algernon Sydnye', which was due to him from Philip Viscount Strangford (b. 1634 and thus a minor). Sidney and Killigrew were on opposite sides in the civil war - Sidney fought for Parliament at Marston Moor, and Killigrew for the King at Edgehill. Sidney was later to suffer death for his part in the Rye House Plot, and his posthumous Discourses were to become a sacred text of whigs in the following century; Killigrew, by contrast, enjoyed prosperity and favour at the Restoration, having the ear of the King on financial matters and writing a number of plays which were performed in London shortly after the theatres were re-opened.
