"Commune Concilium tentum in Camerâ Guildhall Civitatis London, nono Die Septembris,
"This Court, having received a Proposition from
the Honourable House of Commons, by a Committee
thereof, for the Advance of Two Hundred Thousand Pounds, do humbly return this their Answer:
"That the best Way, in their Opinion, to procure the
speedy Advance of the same is,
"That every Person who hath advanced any Money,
Plate, or Horses, with their Furniture and Arms,
upon the Public Faith, may, for every Sum of Money
he shall further lend upon the new Proposition, be
secured a like Sum more, out of the Receipts of the
Grand Excise, in Course, and the Sale of the Bishops Lands, Impropriations and Advowsons only
excepted, which shall first happen, together with
Interest after the Rate of Eight Pounds per Centum
per Annum, to be paid every Six Months, out of the
Receipts of the Excise, till Principal and Interest be
fully discharged; as for Example, if there be owing
to any Person One Hundred Pounds Principal, which,
with Interest due thereupon for Three Years past,
will make One Hundred and Twenty-four Pounds, he
advancing One Hundred and Twenty-four Pounds
more may be secured for the whole Two Hundred and
Forty-eight Pounds as aforesaid, and so proportionably for a greater or lesser Sum, and according to the
Interest due thereupon: And for the more speedy reimbursing of the said Monies secured and lent upon
this new Proposition, that the said Lands of the Bishops be presently enstated and made over unto such
Feossees, for the speedy Sale thereof, and such Treasurers for the Receipt of the Monies as may give best
Satisfaction to the Lenders.
"And upon the Proposition and Security aforesaid,
this Court will contribute their best Endeavours for
the raising of the said Two Hundred Thousand
Pounds, if the Parliament in their Wisdom shall so
E. of Cleveland, further Leave.
