it hath pleased Him to stir up the Hearts of many
good and well-affected People, to yield their willing
and ready Help and Assistance, to the Supply of the
great and pressing Necessities of this Kingdom and
the Kingdom of Ireland, in which pious and charitable Work the Citizens of London, by their singular
Forwardness and good Affection, have been exemplary to all other Parts of this Kingdom, and, in
Times of great Exigence and Necessity, have lent
and advanced great Sums of Money to the Public
Use, and, as well by their Purses and Persons as

Help to the Parliament, for the Support of this

The Certificate of Mr. Justice Foster, concerning Lord Viscount Lostus, and Sir Philip Manwaring.
"May it please your Lordships,
"According to your Lordships Order of the 10th
of this Instant June, the Counsel of the Lord Lostus
and Sir Phillip Manwareing, in their Presence, agreed
upon the Draughts of Conveyance, for the re-assuring
of the Lands mentioned in your Lordships Order to
the Lord Loftus, according to your Lordships Order:
But Sir Phillip Manwareing, conceiving Sir Robt.
Loftus, Eldest Son to the Lord Loftus, now dead, had
some Estate in those Lands, or some Part thereof,
as his own Lands, for that he joined with his Father
in the Assurance of the Earl of Rosecomon, Sir
Adam Loftus, and Sir Phillip Manwareing, upon the
Decree made by the late Lord Deputy of Ireland;
and Sir Phillip Manwareing might be charged by the
Heir of Sir Robt. Loftus for such Lands, in case he
should re-convey the same to the Lord Loftus; and
therefore desired the Lord Loftus would produce his
Writings, and Deeds of Purchase, of those Lands,
by which it might appear what were the Lands of
the Lord Loftus, and what of Sir Robt. Loftus;
which the Lord Loftus expressed himself willing to
do, if he had the same; affirming that, upon the
Assurance of those Lands to the Earl of Rosecomon,
Sir Adam Loftus, and Sir Phillip Manwareing, those
Writings and Evidences were delivered to the late
Lord Deputy, upon the making of his said Decree,
and the same still remained in the Hands of Sir Paule
Davis, in Ireland, and the Lord Loftus had them
not at any Time fithence; and as to that, that Sir
Robt. Loftus joined in the said Assurance, the Lord
Loftus affirmeth the same was so done, for that divers of the said Lands were purchased and estated by
the Lord Loftus, in the Name of Sir Robt. Loftus
and others, in Trust for the Lord Loftus, who all
joined with him in that Assurance made upon
that Decree; but neither Sir Robt. nor any of
them who joined in making that Assurance, had
any Estate in any of the Lands mentioned in that
Assurance, other than in Trust, and at the Dispose
of the Lord Loftus, and offered to make Oath thereof;
nor was any Lands mentioned in the Draught of the
Re-assurance now desired to be made, but what we
particularly named in the First Conveyance made upon
the Decrees: But this did not satisfy Sir Phillip Manwareing, as being not sufficient (as he conceived) to
discharge him against the Heirs of Sir Robt. Loftus;
although he acknowledged he did not know, of his
own Knowledge, whether any or what Part of the said
Land were Sir Robt. Loftus's own Lands, and sheweth
himself willing and ready to seal such Re-assurances
according to your Lordships Order, and as the Draughts
are agreed upon, so as he might be saved harmless
against the Heirs of Sir Robt. Loftus for these Lands,
which were Sir Robert Loftus's own Lands: And these
be the only Differences I conceive to rest between

Day's Appearance, not only of the Trained Bands,

Demonstration of Obedience, as well to this as all
other Commands that shall come from your Honourable Houses, in Opposition of the popish or malignant

notwithstanding the many visible Discouragements from
ill-affected Persons, that make it their Business to blemish the Validity of your Authority, as also by the
Lord Lieutenant's Absence, contrary to the Trust reposed in him.
"Therefore, we humbly implore the Continuance of your Care for our Safeties, and
to appoint such a Lord Lieutenant in whom
we may conside as surely as you may in
us, who are resolved to lay our Lives and
Fortunes at your Feet, in Defence of the
King and Parliament.
