We do therefore by and with the Advice of Our Privy Council Require, And Our Will and Pleasure is, That the said Duties be Collected accordingly, by all and singular the Officers and Collectors Within all and every Our Ports in any of Our Dominions, not doubting of a ready Compliance herein from all Our Loving Subjects.

God save the King.
