any Sums of Money upon the Credit of the said Ordinance, shall be paid their respective Interests for
the same, after the Rates of Eight Pounds per Centum, out of the Receipts of the Excise, to come in

End of every Six Months from the Time of such
their lending or advancing, until the said Ten Thousand Pounds become due in Course; and that then
they, and every of them, shall be paid their Principal
Monies which they shall so lend or advance, together with such remaining Interest, after the Rate
aforesaid, as shall be then due for the same, out of
the said Receipts of the Excise so to come in as aforesaid; and the Commissioners of Excise for the Time
being are hereby authorized and enjoined to make
Payment of the said Principal and Interest to such
Lenders and Advancers, their Executors, Administrators, and Assigns, accordingly, whose Receipt
or Receipts for the same shall be a sufficient Discharge to the said Commissioners of Excise for the
Time being, and every of them respectively, for
Payment of the said Principal and Interest accordingly."
