Same to the Attorney General to report on (a) infra.
Appending : (a) extract from a letter, dated June 24 inst. from one of the Commissioners of the Poll in Suffolk. "I have now finished the [assessing for the] Poll Act and have been strickt in it and hope 'tis as much as can be made in the Hundred of Hoxton [Hoxne], for there is not a parson either for his living as a gent, but is assessed, which is not done in Norfolk nor in some part of Suffolk [where] they only pay their shilling. I hear that in Norfolk they which hath above 140l. a year in two benefices pays only a shilling. So I am blamed mightily for being so strickt for they say the Parliament did only charge the dignified clergy and not them, which I am apt to believe they intended them no such kindness. If there were a review of the Poll in some places there would be a great sum gathered more than 'tis now made of it." Please ask some lawyer of the House [of Commons] whether they excused the parsons or ought they to pay under the title of gentlemen, "which they all repute themselves so, as Masters of Arts." If they be not taxed there will be much money lost. Here in Suffolk some have respited the assessing till they know what others do.
