Imprisonment, so as he will engage his Word and
Honour not to depart out of the Lines of Communication of this City, without the Leave and Consent
of their Lordships: He doth first most humbly acknowledge their Lordships Favour to him; and shall
endeavour to the uttermost of his Power ever to deserve; and doth hereby engage his Faith and Honour, not to depart without the said Lines of Communication, without the special Consent of their
Lordships first obtained: And he doth humbly pray,
that he may be thereupon discharged, &c."

"He humbly prayeth, that, upon reasonable Security for his Return by such a limited Time, he
may have Leave to attend His Majesty, for an
Exchange for Lieutenant Colonel Stevens."
