king's commission for that purpose, he

successor, the Duke of Saxe- Weimar,
had reformed the 6,000 British into

Francis Tyrwhitt was, by Gustavus' s
desire, appointed to the command of
the first. In November of the same
year, a few days before the battle of
Lutzen, he was taken prisoner by the
Imperialists, whilst on a reconnoitring
party with Gustavus, and was thus
debarred from sharing the honours of
that fatal day. He escaped after the
action. In 1642, he joined King
Charles, at York, with 155 men, and
