Memorandum, That albeit the paye is requyred for thies Nombres aforesaid, eyther cannot appeare by poull in Service, or to the Wards and Watches, at eny Time, above 7600 Men; for which occasion, I have dyferryd to desrey Warrants to any Captain for, his full paye; delyvering them nevertheles as much from time to time, as the Paye cometh unto by way of Prest, to be rekoned for upon such triall, as may be thought convenient hereaster, the Time present not serving therunto. And beacuse such as serveth wlth Fidelitie shuld not be by Generalities accompted emongst those that deserveth Reformation, I shall hereaster note the Names of the Captains, in whose Bands the greatest Corruption is chleflie suspected. The monthlie Chardge of thole Armye aforesaid and of Pyoners, Gonners, and other Mynisters, by reason of the sayd newe Supplies, is more at this present then it was at the first Entrie of Tharmye, and amounteth to no lesse then 20000 l. the Moneth. Ext. per me Valentine Browne.
