"Whereas the Right Honourable James Earl of
Carlile, being, by several Letters Patents under the
Great Seal of England, made Lord and Proprietor of
The Caribee Islands, or Province of Carlile, who, coming in, and conformed himself to the Parliament, according to a Declaration in that Behalf made, upon
which the Sequestration of his Estate was taken off
in all Places whatsoever, as appears by an Ordinance
of both Houses in that Behalf made; yet, notwithstanding, certain Persons (as the House is this Day
informed) have (pretending to be sent with Commissions for the Government of the said Islands) laboured to
out the Governors there now legally settled by the said
Earl by virtue of his said Letters Patents, which may
cause Disturbance to the Inhabitants, which hitherto
have remained in Quiet, following their Callings; and
for that the said Earl is now sending a Commission
over into the said Islands, for the regulating his Revenue, and settling the Inhabitants thereof in a more
happy and secure Condition (fn. *) than at present they
are in; and for the avoiding of all Doubts and Scruples which may any Ways arise in any of the Inhabitants of the said Islands, touching the said Earl, or his
Interest in the Premises: It is Manifested and Declared, by the Lords assembled in Parliament, That,
the said Sequestration of the said Earl being taken
off as aforesaid, he standeth in the same Condition
with other Peers of this Realm, both for the Privilege of his Person and Estate; and that, he being
Lord and Proprietor of the said Province as aforesaid, all Manner of Powers, Profits, Privileges, and
Authorities, incident and belonging to the Lord and
Proprietor of the said Islands, do belong unto him,
notwithstanding any Thing that may be objected to
the contrary; of which, all the Planters and Inhabitants of the said Islands are to take Notice, and yield
their Obedience to him and his just Commands, and
to such Governors as is or may be placed by him in
the said Islands, according to the Authority given him
by the said Letters Patents, as they will answer the
contrary to this House."
