Mar. 7. The justices of Yorks to Treasurer Danby, dated from Yorks in reply to his [of Feb. 24 last, ut supra, p. 137], to Sir John Reresby and Sir Godfry Coply, which was communicated to us at our meeting at York. We conceive the order granted by the said Justices and some others for re-delivery of certain distresses made for smiths' forges in Hallamshire was not contrary to law : [and further] that smiths' forges are comprised within the words blowing houses and consequently excused from Hearth duty, and that the determination of all differences arising about levying of money or making distresses for Hearthmoney is finally to be determined by one or more Justices of the Peace. But as to the discouragement of officers we have been so cautious that we have and always shall be ready to assist them.

Ibid, p. 335
May 2. The Justices of Yorkshire to Treasurer Danby dated from York in reply to his of Mar. 18 last, ut supra, p. 159. Our delay in reply is due to the distance of the gentlemen concerned who being now met, we unanimously thank you for your obliging remembrance of your countrymen and favourable construction of our proceedings. As to smiths' forges, after full and frequent debates, we have considered the Attorney General's arguments, and cannot bring ourselves to vary from our former letter, and think ourselves bound to proceed according to our judgments upon those statutes whereof we understand ourselves the proper and final judges in matters of difference concerning distresses, and should readily consent to any other way of trial were it not that we conceive it the intention of the [Hearthmoney] Acts to prevent such chargeable and vexatious suits upon the poorer and most painful sort of people whereof we have had already too sad experience in several parts of this country [county].
