[27 March, 1643.]
The Lords and Commons assembled in Parliament, taking into
their serious considerations the heavy pressures and calamities
which now lye upon this Kingdom by this unnaturall warre
raised against the Parliament; and that notwithstanding all
their faithfull and uncessant Endeavours, for the preserving
of His Majesty, and the whole Kingdome from the mischievous
and restlesse designes of Papists and ill affected persons (whose
aym is the extirpation of our Religion, Laws, and Liberties.)
Yet their Councells and practises are still so prevalent with His
Majesty and the hearts of many people so misled and beguiled
by their false pretences and insinuations, that nothing can be
expected, but ruine and desolation unlesse God in mercy prevent
it, and incline His Majesties heart to the faithfull advice of His
great Councell of Parliament; which hath ever been, and is
(under God) the cheif support of His Royall Dignity and the
security of all that we have or can enjoy. And for that it is most
agreeable to common Justice, that the estates of such notorious
Delinquents, as have been the causers or Instruments of the
publike calamities, which have been hitherto imployed to the
fomenting and nourishing of these miserable Distractions, should
be converted and applyed towards the supportation of the great
charges of the Common-wealth, and for the easing of the good
Subjects therein, who have hitherto borne the greatest share in
Persons whose Estates shall be sequestred.;
Powers of Sequestrators and Committees; Power to enter and receive Rents, etc.;
