    Reibold writes, “On or after the tenth of November 1649, he and several others signed their names below those of other Warwick inhabitants or residents whose signatures were under the date of the previous January 23rd. The text of the document had been torn from the book after Cromwell's reign ended when England became subject to a king again. One source said it had been the ‘Warwick declaration of Rights’, but it is now thought to have been what elsewhere was termed a ‘submition to ye Stat of England without ye kings majisty.’ (Records of the Towne of Warwick, R.I. pp. 73–74. Warwick Declaration of Rights.)” She reproduces the document in the later pages.
