"The humble Petition of the Lords and Commons assembled in Parliament;

"Shewing,

"That Woollen Cloth, and other Woollen Manufactures, within this Realm, are the chief Support of many Thousand Inhabitants thereof, the principal Foundation upon which the Foreign Commerce of this Kingdom moveth, and the great Means of the upholding and advancing of Your Majesty's Customs and Subsidies.

"That, for some Years past, the Dutch have designed to beat down and discourage that Manufacture in this Realm, and to gain the same to themselves; which they have in a great Measure effected.

"That, in order to that Design, they have imposed these immoderate and excessive Imposts or Charges upon English Cloth imported into their Countries; (videlicet,) upon every Short Cloth, Twenty Shillings; upon every Long Cloth, Twenty-four Shillings; upon every Worcester Cloth, Thirty Shillings; and also a certain Charges of Tare, usually amounting to Ten Shillings upwards upon every English Cloth.

"That, by the Exemption of the Dutch Cloth from these Charges, and by the laying those excessive Taxes upon English Manufactury, the Market and Vent of English Cloth and other Woollen Manufacture is hindered, the English Merchant discouraged, and in Effect little less than a plain Inhibition of the Trade of those Manufactures into Holland is introduced and maintained.

"The Premises considered; Your most obedient Subjects, the Lords and Commons assembled in Parliament, humbly pray, That, upon the Treaty with the Dutch, Your Majesty will be pleased to take such effectual Course, that the excessive Impositions aforesaid be taken off from the English Cloth; and that the like Care may be taken in Treaties with other Princes and States.
