    Excerpt from A Calendar of the Court Minutes, Etc; Of the East India Company: 1655-1659 In the general history of England the five years under review were full of stress and trouble. Abroad there was the ill-judged war with Spain, in which the acquisition of Jamaica and Dunkirk was more than balanced by the expense involved and the loss caused to British trade by the depredations of the Spanish privateers. At home general confusion and unrest resulted from the constant plots of the Royalists, from the iron rule of the Major-Generals, and from the failure of the Protector's attempts to secure a stable constitution and reconcile parliamentary government with the views of an executive whose main reliance was necessarily on the army. The death of Cromwell in September, 1658, removed the one man who could control all these discordant elements, and the fact that the reins fell into the hands of so weak a character as his son Richard hastened a conclusion which was perhaps in any case inevitable. Quarrels ensued between Parliament and the army; Richard Cromwell subsided into civil life; and the Government was left a prey to the ambitions of the various Parliamentary and military leaders. General Monk's march from Scotland with his troops (December, 1659), declaring for a free Parliament, was hailed with relief by a nation tired of anarchy. The new House met in April, 1660, and after some brief negotiations Charles II was invited to take possession of his throne. He entered London in triumph on May 29, and thus closed one of the most remarkable chapters of the political history of Great Britain. During this time the merchants who formed the East India Company had a full share in the general distress, intensified as it was by heavy financial exactions; and they found in addition their trade disorganized by the Government's long hesitation over the grant of a new charter, without which it was hopeless to attempt to raise fresh funds.
