Two ordinances of the Lords and Commons assembled in Parliament; viz. the first, enabling the committee of the admiralty to grant commissions to such merchants as shall set out ships at their own charge; and the said merchants to have letters of mart to take all ships, goods and merchandize of any persons whatsoever in arms against the King and Parliament, or assisting the rebels in Ireland. The second, for the sequestring of the estates of spyes and intelligencers; and the fifth part of such estate to be given to such persons as discover them. Also, an order to prevent such persons as are committed to prison by authority of Parliament, from going abroad without order from the said authority. Ordered by the Commons in Parliament, that these ordinances and order be forthwith printed & published: H: Elsynge, Cler. Parl. D. Com
