[blazon of the City of London]

FOr the glory of God, and for the better ordering of the businesse that falls incidently on the day of S. Tho­mas the Apostle, being this yeare the Lords Sabbath: And to the end that for all future times, the businesse that hath heretofore beene handled vpon S. Thomas day, may giue place whensoeuer the said day of S. Thomas shall fall vpon the Sabbath day, Be it ordai­ned and established by authority of this common Coun­cell, That the Courts of Wardemote within the City of London and the liberties thereof, heretofore vsually houlden vpon that day, shall for this yeare be holden vpon Monday next after the feast of S. Thomas the Apostle now next comming: And shall for euer here­after, whensoeuer the same feast shall happen to fall vpon the Sabbath day, be holden vpon the Monday next after the same feast, & not vpon the same feast day. Any ordinance, custome or vsages to the contrary in any wise notwithstanding. And it is further ordayned, and established by authority aforesaid, That all elections of Officers, and other acts and proceedings in any the Courts of Wardemote within the said City and liber­ties to bee holden vpon Monday, as aforesaid, shall bee as sufficient, and of as great force, strength and effect, as if the same elections, acts and proceedings, had been vpon the ordina­ry day of S. Thomas the Apostle.
