November, 1650

[26 November, 1650.]

Monthly rate of £120,000 for maintenance of Armies in England, Ireland, and Scotland, for four months from Dec. 25, 1650.

Although it hath been the earnest care and labor of this present Parliament, in the carrying on of this great Cause (wherein true Religion and the Liberty of this Nation is so highly concerned) to use all the means that hath been in their power to ease the People of the heavy Burthens and Pressures, which by constant Assessments and Levies of Moneys necessary for publique safety, and preventing of Free-quarter, have been continued; And as a Testimony hereof, the Parliament did some Moneths since abate of the Monethly Assessments a considerable proportion, and that before the publique Occasions could well admit thereof; hoping still to have gone on in the diminishing of the same, by lessening the number of their Forces by Sea and Land; and also by all other just and fitting ways of raising Money, by sale of the Land and Revenue of the late King, and the late Deans and Chapters, and of Delinquents: But having found, That whilest these were their thoughts and endeavors for the good and ease of this Commonwealth, that their implacable Enemies were Consulting, Treating and Complotting at Breda, how to raise more dangerous troubles then ever, within the Bowels of this Nation (that hath already so much suffered by its late Wars) and this by the means also of Forreign Nations Correspondency with disaffected Parties within this Commonwealth, and particularly by the means of a second intended Invasion from the Scots, to be ushered in by that unparalleld hypocritical Declaration emitted by them and their King, with which they hoped to have marched up to London, and taken up their Winter-quarters in the fattest and richest parts of England, if God had not disappointed this wicked and horrid Design of theirs, and miraculously shewed himself in the Deliverance of England, and owning the Righteous Cause which they are engaged in: Upon these grounds, and from the fore-sight of these desperate Evils, the Parliament were necessitated to encrease their Forces, as well by Sea as by Land, so as to be able to have a considerable Fleet, to endeavor the Reducing of the Revolted Ships, and an Army to enter Scotland, for the keeping of the War from our own Doors, and yet not be found naked or unprovided at home, either of a sufficient Guard of Ships in the Channel, and to attend the motions of the Army in Scotland, or of Forces in the Southern and Western parts of this Nation, to resist all Incursions from without, or Insurrections within. And since it hath pleased God so eminently to bless these Counsels and Endeavors of the Parliament, for the safety and future Settlement of this Commonwealth, it would be an unanswerable deficiency to the Trust that is reposed in them, if they should not with all vigor prosecute, so far as in them lies, the late happy Victory vouchsafed unto them, by the Mercy of God, against the Scottish Nation, and to follow the Outgoings of the Lord, in securing the Liberties, and Establishing the Peace of this Nation, after all its sad Troubles and Distractions; which the Parliament, after most serious consideration, finding that they are not able to do, without providing a settled course of payment for all their Forces, as well by Sea as by Land, the charge whereof at present is almost double to what it was the beginning of the last year, Do therefore Enact and Ordain, and it is Enacted and Ordained by this present Parliament, and by the Authority of the same, That towards the Maintenance of the Armies in England, Ireland and Scotland, raised by Authority of Parliament for the service of this Commonwealth, the sum of One hundred and twenty thousand pounds per mensem for Four Moneths; viz: From the Five and twentieth day of December, One thousand six hundred and fifty, to the Five and twentieth day of April next ensuing, shall be Assessed, Taxed, Collected, Levied and Paid in the several Counties, Cities, Towns and places hereafter named respectively, by the several Sums, and according to the several Rates and Proportion, and in such maner as is hereafter expressed; viz:—
