THE Lords and Commons assembled in Parlia­men, taking into their serious considerations the heavy pressures and calamities which now lie upon this Kingdome by this unnaturall Warre raised against the Parliament; And that not­withstanding all their faithfull and uncessant endeavours, for the preserving of His Majestie, and the whole Kingdome from the mischievous and restlesse designes of Papists and ill-affected persons (whose aime is the extirpation of our Religion, Laws, and li­berties.) Yet their Counsells and practises are still so prevalent with His Majestie, and the hearts of many people so misled and beguiled by their false pretences and insinuations, that nothing can be expected but ruine and desolation, unlesse God in mercy prevent it, and incline His Majesties heart to the faithfull advice of his great Counsell of Par­liament; which hath ever been, and is (under God) the chiefe support of His Royall dignity, and the security of all that wee have or can en­joy. And for that it is most agreeable to common Justice, that the estates of such notorious Delinquents, as have bin the causes or Instru­ments of the publique calamities, which have been hitherto imployed to the fomenting and nourishing of these miserable distractions, should be converted and applyed towards the supportation of the great char­ges of the Common-wealth, and for the easing of the good subjects therein, who have hitherto borne the greatest share in these burthens.
