Let the committee know that for the 2001. of the 1,000Z. men-

showed me, I knew nothing of it, but the 800L Harley
lent for the setting forth of Sir William Waller at night,
when it was greatly needed to make up the 1,000/. which he
had at his first setting forth, when my Lord-General went
towards Newport. John Carter came to me to Haberdashers'
Hall, and told me he would pay the 800L to Harley, without
which I told him he could not have the wire. He said it was too
dear ; yet as a friend of his laid down the 1,000Z., he would take
- it and pay the rest. The wire was put into Harley's hands for
the 800Z. and this 200Z. ; therefore I thought an Ordinance
should be passed in Haberdashers' Hall for the 1,000Z.
