That Three thousand of these Men were to be brought hither out of France, which are not yet come over; but the rest are all raised, as is certified, though the Muster Rolls of several of them are not yet closed.
That, besides these, there have been raised Two thousand Five hundred Sixty Soldiers, for Recruits to the Four Regiments that were before in the King's Pay, and Eleven hundred Men for Recruits to several Garisons.
That there were Four Regiments of Horse ordered to be raised, of Four hundred and Eighty Men each; all which were raised, except Part of One Regiment, which were to be brought out of France, but are not yet come.

That the whole Number of Soldiers (not including the Officers), intended to be raised, were Twenty-five thousand Five hundred and Sixty Foot, Two thousand Two hundred and Sixty Horse, One thousand Nine hundred and Twenty Dragoons.
That the Committee had likewise received an Account from the Paymaster of the Army, of the Charge of levying the Forces, and of cloathing them: And that the Committee had collected several Heads thereout, which he was ordered to report to the House; and is as followeth:
To be deducted, The Off Reckonings of the Soldiers Pay, towards the Discharge of their Cloathing; viz. Two-pence per Diem for the Foot, Six-pence per Diem for the Horse, and Two Shillings and Six-pence per Week for the Dragoons and Horse Grenadiers, till the End of May, according to the Paymaster's Estimate, amounts to 22,000l.
