It is therefore hereby ordered that in lieu thereof and on the surrender of the Bellews' and Bagnall's estate as above the said Sidney be granted the lands of Sir John Everard, Sir Luke Dowdall, kts., John Baggott of Bagotstown, James FitzGerald of Anny, James Hackett of Pricestown, Peter Nottingham of Ballyowen and James Ronan of Ronans Court, and whereof Richard, late Earl of Tyrconnel, was likewise seized, in cos.

Same to Is[rael] Feilding. My Lords agree to the rates of provisions as in your memorial below. Ibid, p. 439.
Appending: said Feilding's memorial, dated the 9th inst. The following rates are agreeable to what the charge came to last year, “which if calculated for the market prices, this would be much higher excepting only the bread which is according to the rates contracted for with Mr. Pereyra whilst he served the Troops; and those being the prices customarily paid by the soldier.” I think it will be best for the King to keep up those rates, though somewhat too high, and make the Regiments a compensation by a free gift of the beer to them, though where the cask is destroyed or embezzled it will be reasonable to charge the Regiments over and above with it.
