I. 634. Letter from the Lord Mayor to the Lord Treasurer,
stating that he had submitted his request, that a collection should
be made in the several wards on behalf of Peter Clemens, to the Court
of Aldermen. Notwithstanding their desire to grant the request, yet,
for the following reasons, they deemed it very undesirable to tax the
citizens: first, because the said Clemens was a stranger; second, because
he, being a Tallow-chandler, ought not to have used the trade of melting
tallow within the City, contrary to the orders made in that behalf,
therebyfiring his own house, and greatly imperilling his neighbours; and,
third, because the collection would be used by him to pay his creditors
certain bonds: nevertheless, if he still thought it desirable, they would
for his sake make the collection.

relief for the support of himself and family.
