And whereas it is also referred to this Committee, that, upon their finding out of such Way for paying in the said Residue, they inform themselves what Tallies have been struck in the Exchequer for any Part of the said Twenty thousand Pounds, and the Money not actually paid, and to consider how the said Tallies may be discharged and vacated; upon due Consideration of that whole Matter, they find, that, for Twelve thousand and Seven hundred Pounds, Tallies have been given out of the Exchequer, but no Monies paid to the Lord General thereupon, and for the vacating of the said Tallies: It is the humble Opinion of the Committee, that his Majesty be desired to grant a Warrant to the Commissioners for the Treasury, under the Privy Seal, or Great Seal of England, for the cancelling of the Tallies, delivering up or discharging the Receipts, and entering Vacates upon the Records of the Tallies.

Resolved, That the Sum of Five thousand Eight hundred Fifty-nine Pounds Fifteen Shillings Sixpence, which appears to be the Residue remaining unpaid of the Twenty thousand Pounds, conferred on the Lord General Monck, over and above what is paid at the Receipt of Exchequer, and what is charged on the Ordinance for Three Months Assessment, be paid to the Lord General Monck, or whom he shall appoint, out of the general Receipt of the Excise: And that the Commissioners of the Excise, for the Time being, be, and hereby are, authorized and required to pay to the Lord General Monck, or his Assigns, the Sum of Three hundred Fiftynine Pounds Fifteen Shillings Sixpence, Part thereof, upon the Thirtieth Day of June Instant, and Five hundred Pounds every Week after, until the said whole Sum of Five thousand Eight hundred Fifty-nine Pounds Fifteen Shillings Sixpence be fully satisfied and paid: And that the Acquittance or Acquittances of the said Lord General, or his Assigns, be, unto the said Commissioners, a sufficient Discharge:

That the Lords Concurrence be desired herein: And Sir John Northcot is to carry it to the Lords.

Whereas Tallies have been struck in the Exchequer for Twelve thousand and Seven hundred Pounds, towards satisfying of the Twenty thousand Pounds conferred on the Lord General Monck; but no Part paid to the Lord General thereupon: And whereas Provision is made for satisfying the same some other Way;

Resolved, That his Majesty be humbly desired from this House, that he will please to grant his Warrant to the Lords Commissioners for the Treasury, under his Majesty's Privy Seal, or under the Great Seal of England, for the cancelling of the Tallies, delivering up or discharging the Receipts, and entering Vacates upon the Records of the Tallies, for the Sum aforesaid; and that Mr. Annesley and Mr. Secretary Morris, or one of them, be desired to attend his Majesty herewith.
