[7 December, 1649.]
Monthly rate of £90,000 for 3 months for forces in England and Ireland, from Dec. 25, 1849.
The Parliament of England now assembled, having been necessarily inforced to the expense of divers vast sums of money, in the
preparing and speedy transporting their Army for Ireland, and
for the furnishing of them with Shipping, Provisions for War,
and other Accommodations requisite for so great an undertaking;
By reason of which Expedition, and in regard the Monethly Assessments fall far short of discharging the ordinary Salary of the
Garrisons, and their Armies, the other Treasuries of the Commonwealth have been extraordinarily exhausted: And for that also
the Parliament are necessitated out of the Treasuries of this Commonwealth, still to furnish the Army in Ireland, (especially in
their hardship of Winter-services) with timely pay and other necessaries that so (until they can be otherwise provided for) they may
be from hence encouraged to carry on and perfect that work so
eminently conducing to the relief of the distressed there, and the
quiet and advantage of this Commonwealth; towards which (by
the blessing of God upon their endeavors) they have already
made a very happy progress, even far beyond what could be hoped
for in so short a space; and so, as that unless the Parliament should
wilfully contemn those great and unexpected mercies, in which the
hand of God hath so visibly appeared, and become unfaithful to
that Trust they through former difficulties have and always shall,
through the assistance of God, endeavor faithfully to discharge:
And unless also they should as much as in them lies, deliver up
their Army and Friends in Ireland, to the merciless cruelty of the
enraged Enemy there, and hereby hazard the utter ruine and
destruction of this Commonwealth, they may not neglect the
constant and timely recruiting, and compleat maintaining that
Army with sufficient supplies of Men, Moneys, Arms, Ammunition,
and like convenient Furnitures, which their necessities (as yet)
will daily call for and require, as well to preserve their power in the
Field, as also to secure and safe keep those many Garisons already
in their possession, and such others as it shall please God to deliver
into their hands, which may be thought fit to be continued and
maintained there: And considering the sad and late experience
this Commonwealth hath had of Civil Commotions, and that until
Providence (by a perfect and through reducement of Ireland to
the obedience of this Commonwealth) shall put an end to all controversies there, that good Peace and settlement which this Commonwealth hath for some moneths past enjoyed, may by the
Enemies thereof be the better attempted to be disturbed, with
hopes of more probable success then they can otherwise expect;
The prevention whereof, and well performance of that trust and
care that lies upon the Parliament, in reference to the Army in
Ireland, will be the most certain and ready means to the abatement
at least of the number of Forces (otherwise of necessity to be continued in this Commonwealth) and consequently of the present
Pressures and Burthens thereof: And to the end also that the
Forces in this Commonwealth may be still kept from Free-quarter
and Billet, by the continuance of timely Pay, which (especially to
those places where the Assessments have been readily paid) hath
proved great ease and advantage, towards which the other Publique
Receipts of the Commonwealth, beside the Assessments of the
Army, being by the afore-mentioned Charge so as is aforesaid
exhausted, and not yet wholly freed from those Engagements
wherewith they were formerly clogged, cannot render such considerable supply to the present Disbursements as otherwise they
might, and the Parliament have good grounds to hope they wil
speedily afford; but that there is yet a necessity of continuing
the Assessments for maintenance of their said Armies for six moneths
longer; (viz.) At the rate of Ninety thousand pounds per mensem
for the first three of the said Moneths, and at the Rate of Sixty
thousand pounds per mensem for the other three moneths thereof:
Be it therefore Enacted by this present Parliament, and it is hereby
Enacted by the Authority thereof, That towards the maintenance
of the Forces in England and Ireland, the sum of Ninety thousand
pounds per mensem for the first three Moneths next ensuing,
from the Five and twentieth of December, One thousand six
