Hi Angelica,

You could start to answer these questions with the official newsbook of the Protectorate, Mercurius Politicus, edited by Milton's friend Marchamont Nedham, which included extensive reporting of the massacre (it will also give you a sense of "normal" time delays for news). There is further documentation of the flow of news into John Thurloe's office, and to which Milton would therefore have had access, in the Thurloe State Papers in the British library. They offer an essential context not only for the sonnet on the massacre but for his diplomatic documents.

You can find the manuscript references in an article I wrote (partly) about the sonnet years ago -- so long ago that it's no longer on my computer, so I can't offer the references here, and I can't right now lay my hands on a hard copy ...
‘The Daily Muse; Or, Seventeenth-Century Poets Read the News’. The Seventeenth Century 10 (1995): 189-218.

Dear scholars,

I am interested in finding out details about Milton learning about the Piedmont attack in April 1655 that prompted him to write the sonnet “Avenge, O Lord, thy slaughter’d saints” (1655). Some of the texts I have looked into say simply that news of the atrocity travelled fast. They point to heads of state like Cromwell getting formal notice. Documentation regarding Cromwell’s formal notice would be useful if there is nothing specific about Milton’s notice.

All speed appreciated. Many thanks.
