[26 January, 1659/60.]
When the Parliament of the Commonwealth of England was
violently and illegally interrupted, the twentieth of April, one
thousand six hundred fifty three (notwithstanding the great
and Chargeable War this Nation was then necessitated to be
engaged in abroad) then were the Armies and Navies of this
Commonwealth well provided for and paid, and the publique Treasure then in a readiness, far exceeding the Debts owing
to, or for either of them. And when it pleased Almighty God
wonderfully, the seventh of May last, to restore the Parliament,
they found this Nation (through the evil Government and Management of affairs in the time of the said Interruption) engaged
in a War with the King of Spain, and also the Land and Sea Forces
and Navies at a vast (if not unnecessary) charge employed in
Foreign Parts, and the Publique Debts contracted within the
time of the aforesaid Interruption by the best Estimat that can
yet be made, did amount unto two millions of pounds sterling
and upwards: Whereby, and by other Exorbitances incident
to (if not unavoidable in) Monarchical Government, a general discontent did arise, the which by false Brethren in conjunction with
Papists, old Enemies-in-Arms, and other seduced persons, was
fomented, as the fittest means for the effecting their wicked and
trayterous designe of bringing in Charls Stuart, whom they had
proclaimed to be King of England, hoping thereby to advance themselves, enslave the people of this Commonwealth, and to put again
upon their necks and Consciences, the iron yoke of Tyrannie and superstitious Worship, having already to that purpose raised a new
War, whereby the Parliament hath been necessitated to raise
many new Regiments and Troopes, as also to Equippe many more
Ships of War for the defence of this Commonwealth against those
Rebels and Traytors, and thereby are (although otherwise very
unwilling) necessitated for the ends aforesaid, and that the taking
off Free-quarter and other mischiefs and inconveniences may be
prevented to raise Moneys upon the People of this Commonwealth,
as is hereby and here after set forth.
£100,000 monthly rate for 6 months on England, Scotland, and Ireland, for maintenance of Armies and Navies.; What proportion on England, Scotland, and Ireland respectively; Proportion of rates on several counties, etc., in England.
Be it therefore Enacted by this present Parliament, and the

of this Commonwealth, and for other the necessary and urgent
