We the Lord Deputy and Council, for a timely and seasonable prevention of that Scarcity which by such Transportation of Corn may be brought upon this Kingdom; Do hereby in his Majesties Name strictly Charge and Command all manner of persons whatsoever, that they do from henceforth untill Michaelmas next, forbear to Ship, Carry or Transport, any Wheat, Barly, Rye, Beare, Oates, Pease, Pulse, Meslin or any Meale or Malt out of this Kingdom, to any other Place whatsoever be­yond the Seas, as they will answer the contrary at their perilis. And We require all his Majesties Officers in the several and respective Ports of this Kingdom: And the Commissioners for manageing of his Majesties Revenue in this Kingdom, that they do Seize all such Grain, Meale or Malt, as they shall find to be Shipt after the Date of this our Proclamation, and before Michaelmas next, with intent to Export the same, contrary to the meaning hereof.
