And whereas some Doubts have arisen whether several of the Tallies which were levied upon the said respective Branches of Revenues between the Two and Twentieth Day of November One thousand six hundred ninety five being the First Day of the Session in which the said Act passed and the Foure and twentieth Day of June One thousaud six hundred ninety six can or may be paid out of the same Revenues appropriated by the said Act in course according to their respective Dates in regard they were not levied before the said Two and Twentieth Day of November One thousand six hundred ninety five or by virtue of the said Act or upon the weekly Su[m]ms thereby appropriated and whether the Interest of the said Tallies levied between the Two and twentieth Day of November One thousand six hundred ninety five and the said Foure and twentieth Day of June and the Interest of the Tallies levied or to be levied for the said Su[m]m not exceeding Foure hundred thousand pounds can or may be paid out of the said Six thousand pounds a Week first mentioned in and appropriated by the said Act until the Tallies levied before the said Two and twentieth Day of November One thousand six hundred ninety five and the Interest thereof shall be paid and discharged.
