rUP. and cbet. sequestered in December 1643 by the Commissioners for Seques-

HEP. 93 13 Gibson being in Flanders, where he has turned Eoman Catholic,
attached the estate of Mrs. Parker in Flanders for the debt, on
which account it has, till lately, been allowed to remain in peti-
tioner's hands. Begs an order to pay in only f of the debt, Gibson

CEBT. 93 16 17 to reverse the former order for sequestration of Gibson's estate,
