Daily entries from the 17th century London diary
"The Committee of Safety, established by the Parliamentarians in July 1642, was the first of a number of successive committees set up to oversee the English Civil War against King Charles. It was made up of fifteen Members of Parliament.
"The last Committee of Safety was set up on October 26, 1659 by the high command of the New Model Army just before the Restoration. It was set up in response to the Rump Parliament which the day before tried to place the commander of the army Charles Fleetwood as chief of a military council under the authority of the speaker."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_Committee_...
