Balentyne's Affidavit, concerning Cole's disobeying the Order for preserving the Goods in the E. of Lauderdale's House.
"Robert Baleintyn, Servant to the Right Honourable Anne Countess Lawderdayle, aged Twenty-six Years, or thereabouts, maketh Oath, That he being in his Lady's House, in Aldersgate-streete, London, where the Goods in the House, seized for the Delinquency of the Right Honourable John Earl of Lawderdayle, by Warrant from the Committee of Habberdash'rs Hall, were and are, and which, by Order of the Fifth of this Instant October, of the Right Honourable the Lords in Parliament, are ordered not to be removed, embezzled, nor alienated, until it should be determined by the Houses into what Way to put the Examination of the Right of the said Goods; Richard Cole, a Taylor, who there kept Possession under the Seizure, being shewed the said Order, whereof the Copy is annexed, by this Deponent, on Saturday the 7th of this Instant, and required to yield Obedience thereunto, the said Cole refused to see the said Order, or give Obedience thereunto; but said peremptorily, "He would not obey the same, but would take and dispose the Goods so seized;" and said moreover, in a slighting Manner, "He cared not a Pin for the Order of the House of Lords, nor would obey the same, but would take another Course;" flurting with his Finger at this Deponent, in his so expressing himself. And being told by this Deponent, "The Lords would send a Messenger to have an Account of such his Carriage;" the said Cole, in a braving and insolent Manner, said, "I would they dared so do; and he would be glad to see, who durst meddle with him for his so doing, or saying." And said, the 9th of this Instant, "He would bring Two Files of Musketeers, and break open the Gates."
