"The Lords and Commons assembled in the Parliament of England, taking into Consideration the most
miserable sad Condition of all the Brittish and Protestants within the Kingdom of Ireland, through the
late horrid Rebellion, and the most barbarous Cruelties there acted upon them by the bloody Irish Rebels;
and finding that, in regard of the great Distractions
within this Kingdom, they were not then able to afford them such present Relief and Supplies as their
Necessities required; did, by an Ordinance of both
Houses, appoint Mr. Adam Laurence, Mr. Diericke
Hoosts, Mr. Maurice Thompson, and Mr. Nicholas Corsellis, of London, to be Commissioners, and ordered
them presently to repair to the High and Mighty
Lords The States Generall of The United Provinces, as
likewise to the Burgomasters of the several Cities,
and all other well-affected People to the Protestant
Cause there, to negotiate for the Relief of the Brittish
and Protestants in Ireland, either by Subscription for
Land, Loans, voluntary Contributions, or other
Ways: Now whereas the said Commissioners have
presented unto both Houses of Parliament a full Account of their whole Proceedings in that Business,
whereby it doth appear that the full Sum of One and
Thirty Thousand Two Hundred and Eighteen Pounds,
Twelve Shillings, and Five Pence, was brought in by
the voluntary Contribution of the well affected People in The United Provinces, for the Supply of the
Brittish and Protestants within the Realm of Ireland,
and disposed of accordingly in Victual; the said
Lords and Commons, taking Notice of the extraordinary great Affection of the People of The United Provinces declared herein towards them, have thought fit
to publish this Manifest, as an Acknowledgement of
their pious and charitable Sense of the miserable
Condition of their distressed Brethren in Ireland, in
their Benevolence for the Relief of those Protestants,
who had so highly suffered through the most horrid
Cruelties of those bloody Rebels. And they being
given further to understand of the great Care and
Diligence, as well of the said Commissioners, as also
of Mr. Thomas Cane, Mr. Charles Looten, Mr. William
Watson, and Mr. Jonas Abeels, the Treasurers in Amsterdam, and Mr. Jeronimo William Asshman, Mr. Peter Boudaen Courten, and Mr. John De Durper Cozen,
Treasurers in Middleburgh, who did with much Faithfulness go through this Work, discharging the Trust
reposed in them without making any Defalcation for
their Charges or Salary out of those Contributions,
do likewise give the said Commissioners and Treasurers their most hearty Thanks, and to all others who
have assisted in this good Work, so seasonably performed, for the Relief of the Brittish and Protestants
Order for 1000 l. for the Commissioners employed to negotiate it.

Hundred Pounds; to Mr. Corsellis, Three Hundred
Pounds, to Mr. Adam Lawrence, Two Hundred
Pounds; and to Mr. Maurice Thompson, a Hundred
