"1. The great Necessity of the Kingdom at this Time for Money is such, as all due Means are requisite to the procuring of it; and by this Ordinance there is only Four Thousand Pounds payable, which appears by the Place where it is consigned to be paid, that it is only for his Brother's Wardship, no Sum particularly being expressed therein for his Delinquency; and for that he conceived it to be a Precedent of ill Consequence at this Time, that any One who is declared by Ordinance of Parliament a Delinquent, as by this very Ordinance he conceives Mr. Howard is, should at this Time be discharged without paying or expressing a Sum particularly for such Discharge.
