The Humble ADDRESS Of the Right Honourable the Lords Spiritual & Temporal In PARLIAMENT Assembled.

WE the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Par­liament Assembled, Having taken into our Serious Consideration the great Mischief which is brought up­on this Your King­dom, by reason that the Coin which Passeth in Payments is generally Clip­ped, and that no other Remedy is like to prove Effectual for Preventing the [Page 4]Increase of this Evil, but to make Clip­ping Unprofitable for the future, Do most Humbly Address to Your Majesty, to Issue out Your Royal Proclamation, That from such Day or Days, as Your Majesty shall think fit, no Clipped Mo­ney, of any Sort, shall Pass in any Pay­ment, as the Currant Coin of this King­dom.

Matth. Johnson, Cleric' Parliamentor'
