[Resolve concerning the limitations of government, treaty with England and other acts]

Resolved that this parliament will proceed to make such limitations and conditions of government for the rectifications of our constitution as may secure the religion, liberty and independency of this nation, and that they will name commissioners to treat with England for regulating our commerce and other concerns with that nation prior to all other business, except an act for two months' supply first of all to be granted for the present subsistence of her majesty's forces.

And will presently give credit for maintaining the forces during this session of parliament, and they will take the business of the army and the funds for it under their consideration.
