VII. 201. Order in Council reciting that the King, taking into
consideration the manifold inconveniences that might arise by the
use of balloting (fn. 1) boxes, of late begun to be practised by some
Corporations and Companies, had declared his utter dislike thereof,
and, with the advice of the Council, had ordered that no Corporation
or Company, within the City or Kingdom, should use, or permit to be
used, in any business whatever, any balloting boxes, as they tendered
His Majesty's displeasure, and would answer the contrary at their peril.
At the Court, at Hampton Court, 17th September, 1637.
