IN Obedience to a Reference from the honourable House; we have examined the Petition and Business of Mrs. Lovisa Houston, whereby we find, by a Witness upon Oath, her Marriage Portion did amount to above the Value of Four thousand Pounds: And that the late King, in the Tenth Year of his Reign, did grant, under the Great Seal of England, unto John Houston Esquire, and Lovisa Carew, his now Wife, or the Survivor of them, an Annuity of Four hundred Pounds per Annum, out of his Exchequer, in Consideration of the said Portion, and for accomplishing of the said Marriage, with other Considerations, expressed in the said Grant; the last Payment of which Pension was made at Michaelmas 1640: And that they have not received any thing thereof from the Committee of the Revenue, as appears by Certificates from Sir Robert Pye, and Mr. Folconbridge; we likewise find by Testimony from an honourable Member of the House, That the said Mr. Houston hath done very considerable Service for the State; as also upon the Oath of the said Mr. Howston, the Estate in Lands, which he had with the said Lovisa Carew, his now Wife, is engaged for the Sum of above Two thousand Pounds: Whereby their Condition is very sad and ruinous: All which we humbly leave to the Consideration of the honourable House.

The Question being put, that the Sum of Three hundred Pounds be paid unto John Howston Esquire, Husband of the said Mrs. Lovisa Howston, out of the Monies to be raised by the Sale of the Goods of the late King, Queen, and Prince, by the Treasurers of that Receipt; and that the Trustees do issue their Warrant to the said Treasurers accordingly; and the Acquittance and Acquittances, &c.
