Thairfoir the saids estaites have not only ratified and approven the foirsaid act of counsell, with concurse of the saids commissioneres for conserveing the peace and commissioneres of the common burdings, but also have of new statute and ordained, lykas they be thir presents statute and ordaine that alsweill these who have alreadie advanced money or victuall or who have ingadged themselffes for payment of the pryces of victuall, money and uther provisioune, by warrand of the saids lords of councell alone, or by warrant of them joyntly with the saids commissioneres of peace and common burdings, but also the wholl foirsaids sowmes (wherof the saidis former advancement are a pairt) are heirby ordained to be repayed out of the first and readiest of the saids arreares, conforme to the tenour and upon the conditiounes mentioned in the said act of counsell, with concurse foirsaid.

And incaice the samyn shall not be repayed by the parliament of Ingland betuixt and the said second day of Februare nixt to come, it is heirby statute and ordained, lykas the saids estaites by thir presents statutes and ordaines that the wholl foirsaids persounes who have by warrand foirsaid advanced money, victuall or uther provisioun to the said airmie preceiding the dait heiroff, conforme to the particular compt thairoff regisrat in the books of conventioun of the dait heiroff, shalbe repayed, ilk man of his severall sowmes, togidder with the interest theroff, conforme to the tenour of the foirsaid acts; and that out of the first and readiest of the sowmes of money to be uplifted by vertew of this present act, and that by the collectour, subcollectour and utheres haveing warrand and power to resave the samyn betuixt and the last day of Februarii nixtocome.

So that it shall not be leissum to the saids collectoures or utheres to dispose upon any of the saids moneyes so to be lent without the consent of these who have lent the said money or victuall wntill they be first satisfied.

And incaice the said parliament of Ingland shall not happin to pay and delyver the saids bygone arreares, at leist so much thairoff as shall repay the saids sowmes to be lent as said is betuixt and the first day of Junii nixt in the yeare of God 1644 yeares,

And seing it is agried and condiscended unto that the burden be equally according to every mans estait, in that caice it is declaired that when the wholl valuatiounes of the wholl kingdome shalbe knowen in maner and conforme to the rolls above specifit,

Thairfoir it is appoynted and ordained that a survey shalbe made of the wholl foirsaids rolls and compaired on[e] with another, to the effect it may be sein and knowen if any shyre or shyres have payit more out of the hundreth merkis (victuall and uther commodities being turned into money) then uther shyres have; and being so fund, that some may be appoynted befoir this present convention dissolve, or by the nixt parliament, or by committies from ather of them, to sie the just proportioun, which, according to thair foirsaids rents, would fall upon every shyre, that these who have payed more then thair just proportion may have repayment aff the shyres who have payit lesse, to be collected and inbrocht by such persounes as this present conventioun, the estaits of parliament or committies from ather shall appoynt.

And becaus the foirsaids wholl sowmes of money (alsweill to burgh as landward) extendis to a greate sume of money and wilbe [a] considerable burthein upon this kingdome, and that the same is wholly payed out of the land rentis, trade, burrow landis and other land rent and yeirly commoditie without consideratioun or laying any burding upon money, bank or annualrent, thairfoir it is statute and ordained, lykas the saids estaites statutes and ordaines that everie debtour of money upon annualrent (alsweill to burgh as landward) shall have retention of the said terme of Candlemes nixt of six of each hundreth merkes or punds quherin he is lyable of annualrent to his creditoures at the said terme, provydeing that the remanent of the said annuell rent out of the which the said debtour shall crave retentioun shalbe thankfullie payed at the leist within thre monethes efter the said terme off payment of the annualrent, otherwayes no retentioun to be allowed.

And siclyk it is heirby declaird that this present act nor no clause therin shalbe any ground of suspensioun to any debtour for retentioun of the said principall sumes addebtit by him and byrun annualrents, but that everie creditour may sute, crave and charge for the same efter the day of payment thairoff.

And siclyk, inrespect that the foirsaides sumes of money so to be sent are in hope of payment thairoff from the parliament of Ingland,

It is heirby declaired that the wholl creditoures within this kingdome (alsweill to burgh and landward) who shall grant retentioun to thair debitoures in manor foirsaid shall have thair proportionall repayment with the rest of the cuntrey; and that either from his debitoures, if it please the creditour to trust him thairwith, or utherwayse to tak assignatioune from the debitour upon the parliament of Ingland as a pairt of the same due to the debitour for his releiff.

And because the enemies to religioun and peace of this kingdome are daylie making devisiounes and waiting all occasiounes wherby they may draw to factiones, make insurrectiounes and stirre up otheres to the dissobedience of the lawes and common resolutioune, for the goode of religioune, his maties honour and saiffitie and the weill of this kingdome,

Thairfoir, and for the reasounes contained in the act of the saids estaits made anent the levie of some horse and foote for preveening any such divisiounes, distractiones, insurrectiones, factiounes and dissobedience to the saids common resolutiounes,

It is heirby statute and ordained that the generall collectour sall tak sufficient and responsall cautioune from every subcollectour to doe his exact diligence in everything committed to his charge, alsweill in bringing in of money as all other diligence, conforme to the bands to be made by them and ther cautioners theranent.

It is lykwyse statute and ordained that the collectors of every parisch shall aither be a sufficient and responsall man himsellf, or otherwayes shall give sufficient cautioun for his intromissioun and diligence, the which diligence, to be done as weill by the saids subcollectoures as by the saids collectoures or paroches respective, is heirby understoode to be all ordinary executioun of horning registrat in due tyme and poynding, untill they be stopped by deforcement, are to be received for diligence allenerly.

And becaus these who taks paines in the saids collectiones, as weill the said subcollectoures, collectoures of paroches, clerkes in the shyres, clerk of the said collectioun and utheres to be imployed in the said service, will deserve to have certane fies and allowance granted to them,

It is thairfoir statute and ordained that ane roll be made thairoff, ather by the saids estaits or by some to be appoynted from them, which rolls, being so made and sett doun, the same sall be registrat in the books of conventioun and extracts geven farth thairoff, to the effect every man may know his awin due.
