Excerpt from Scotland and the Commonwealth: Letters and Papers Relating to the Military Government of Scotland, From August 1651 to December 1653

ON August 8, 1651, Perth surrendered to Cromwell, and on the following day he began his pursuit of Charles II. Monk, who then held the rank of lieutenant-general of the Ordnance, was left behind to complete the conquest of Scotland. The forces at his disposal for this task were not more than ten thousand men, if indeed so many, but as there was no organised army to meet him in the field his numbers were for the moment sufficient. Garrisons had been left in Leith, Edinburgh, and Perth, and probably also in Burntisland and some smaller places. Monk's field force consisted of four regiments of horse and three of foot with some troops of dragoons and the greater part of the train of artillery. Cromwell estimated the numbers of Monk's force at 4000 or 5000 men, but Downing the Scout master-general mentions 7000 or 8000. The discrepancy can be explained by supposing that Downing included in his total some of the recently established garrisons.
