Ld. Lisle's Accompt.

MR. Thomas Challener reports from the Committee for Irish Affairs, the State of the Accompt of the Lord Lisle, for his Lordship's Allowance and Entertainment, as Lord Lieutenant for Ireland, and for his Commands in the Army there: That the same being stated, according to the Establishment for Ireland, and the Directions of the Order of this House of 24 Octobris last, there remains due to him Seven thousand Eight hundred Sixty-eight Pounds Four Shillings and Five-pence; but his Lordship desires to acquit the State of Three thousand Pounds thereof: After Defalcation whereof there remains due to his Lordship Four thousand Eight hundred Sixty-four Pounds Four Shillings and Five-pence.

Which Report followeth, in these Words; viz.

This Committee having now received and considered of the Accompt of the Lord Lisle's Entertainments, and other Allowances, as Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, and for his Commands in the Army there, as the same is audited and stated, according to the Establishment for Ireland, and the Directions given by the Order of the House of Commons, of the Four-and twentieth of October last; and finding that, after Defalcation is made of all that hath been received by his Lordship for those Entertainments and Allowances, there remains due unto him the Sum of Seven thousand Eight hundred Sixty-eight Pounds Four Shillings and Five-pence; of which Sum the said Lord Lisle doth desire to acquit the State of the Payment of Three thousand Pounds, in regard that the Entertainments are large, yet no other than are already allowed by the House, and his Stay in Ireland not so long as he could have wished, though his Charge and Pains were well known to be little less before his going hence, than there; so that then the Sum remaining will be Four thousand Eight hundred Sixty-four Pounds Four Shillings and Five-pence; it is now thought fit, and resolved by this Committee, That, in pursuance of the said Order of October last, the same be reported to the House of Commons; with the Opinion of this Committee, That the said Sum of Four thousand Eight hundred Sixty-eight Pounds Four Shillings and Five-pence may be paid unto the said Lord Lisle; that is to say, the One-half thereof, being Two thousand Four hundred Thirty-four Pounds Two Shillings and Two-pence Half-peny, out of the weekly Assessments for Ireland, coming in by the Ordinances of Parliament, made in the Year 1644 and 1645; out of which many Officers, serving in the Wars of Ireland, have lately been appointed Part of their Arrears; and the Residue, being Two thousand Four hundred Thirty-four Pounds Two Shillings and Two-pence Halfpeny, out of the Monies coming in by the Ordinances of the Thirteenth of January 1647, and 5 Junii 1648, for raising Fifty thousand Pounds for Ireland: And that the Council of State, and the Committee for the Affairs of Ireland, sitting in the Star Chamber, may respectively give Order for Payment thereof, accordingly: And Mr. Challener, or, in his Absence, Sir Wm.
