Broadgates Hall, Oxf.

When a mysterious letter was delivered to the House on 23 June, Pym ensured that it was referred to a committee, recalling the similar incident in 1621, and, once it turned out to be popish in content, he was appointed to help take it to the king. He probably joined the search party himself, as his diary falls silent for the duration of this exercise, which rendered possible the subsequent inquiry into the whole affair.37 On the same day he persuaded the Speaker to lend him two letters which had just been delivered to the House; these he produced again with a flourish on 26 Nov., revealing that one of them warned of a new popish plot. He therefore moved for the Commons’ complaints to be presented at a conference instead, which, he argued, would save time.83 This strategy was agreed, and Pym was appointed both to draft the charge and to present it (14 and 27 May).
