Ord. 7 May, 1643.; Additional Committees appointed.

Whereas in the Ordinance of both Houses of Parliament lately passed for the speedy raising and levying of Money, for the maintenance of the Army raised by Parliament, by taxing such as have not contributed or lent at all towards the Maintenance of the said Army, or if they have, yet not in any reasonable measure answerable to their estates, divers persons therein appointed Committees are misnamed, and divers persons fit to further the Execution of the same Ordinance are omitted to be therein named to be Committees, whereby the service (if it be not remedied) is like to bee much retarded and hindred. It is therefore Ordered and Ordained by the Lords and Commons in Parliament, that the severall persons hereunder named, shall bee Committees for the executing of the said Ordinance, in the severall Counties, Cities, and places, for which they are hereby and herein nominated and appointed, viz.)
