A PROCLAMATION For removing the Receipt of His Majesties Exchequer from Westminster to Nonsuch.


THe Kings most Excellent Majesty taking into His Princely Considerati­on the great and dangerous increase of the Plague in and about the City of Westminster, where His Majesties Receipt of Exchequer hath been hi­therto kept; & willing, as much as is possible, to prevent the further dan­ger which might ensue as well to His own Officers, which are necessari­ly to attend the same Receipt, as to other His loving Subjects, who shall have occasion either for Receipt or Payment of Moneys to repair thither; Hath therefore taken Order for the present Remove of the Receipt of His said Exchequer, together with the Tally-Office, and all things there­unto belonging, from thence to His Majesties Honour of Nonsuch in the County of Surrey: And hath thought fit by this His Proclamation to Publish, That the same shall be there open­ed on the Fifteenth day of August next, to the end that all persons whom the same may concern, may take notice whither to repair upon all occasions, concerning the bringing in, or issuing out of His Majesties Treasure at the Receipt of His Exchequer. Willing and requiring all Sheriffs, Bayliffs, Collectors, and all other Officers, Accomptants, and persons whatso­ever, who are to pay in any Moneys into the said Receipt of His Majesties Exchequer, or otherwise to attend the same, to keep their days and times at Nonsuch aforesaid, and there to do, pay, and perform in all things, as they should, or ought to have done at Westminster, if the said Receipt of Exchequer had continued there. And this to be done and observed until His Majesty shall publish and delare His further Pleasure to the contrary.

God save the King.
