“ lowly orators, and loving subjects, we underwritten : that
“ like as your most noble father of immortal memory,
“ King Henry VIII. and your most godly and noble
6 brother King Edward VI. in their princely zele which
" they bare to the estate of Christ's faith, did much tender
“ the advancement of learning, by cherishing of students,
" and encouraging of Ministers; whereby they were the
6 more able to do their duty to God, and to serve the
“ necessity of the realm ; by which their royal and princely
“ affection, they purchased perpetual fame and praise, as
“ wel within their own realms, as throughout al Christen-
“ dom : so we trust undoubtedly that your Grace, being
“ endowed with the benefits of knowledg far above any of
“ your noble progenitors, wil be enclined no less to the
“ maintenance of learning, for the setting forth of Christ's
“ true religion, now, for want of sufficient Ministers, in
“ great jeopardy of decay. In respect wherof, we trust,
6 that your Highnes gracious disposition wil yet stay and
“ remit this present alteration and exchange, as we suppose
“ in our consciences (under reformation of your great wis-
“ dom) not meet to proceede for the inconveniencies therof,

“ grounds and reasons as we could particularly describe in BOOK « writing, if your Highnes plesure were to admit us to the “ declaration of the same. .“ And yet, lest we should appear not to consider your “ Highnes's manifold and great charges dayly sustained in “ most honorable wise; we five underwritten, for us, the “ province of Canterbury, do offer to give unto the same “ yearly among us one annual pension of one thousand “ marks, during our lives and continuance in the bishoprics, “ for and in consideration of the exoneration of the said “ exchange. ..“ Howbeit, most gracious Soveraign, as most obedient “ subjects, in true and lowly allegiance of our hearts, we « sue and pray, that if this our said supplication shal not be “ thought meet to take place, that yet your Highnes would “ condescend favourably to peruse these our petitions follow“ ing, which we be perswaded to be grounded upon natural “ equity, godly conscience, and good conformity, for most “ part of them, to the act passed.

I. That the vicarages of impropriated benefices, ap-17 66 pointed in exchange, may be made just livings for the “ incumbents of the same. And that the chancels and “ mansion houses decayed, might be considered by survey “ to some reasonable proportion of allowance in the ex66 change.

“ II. Item, That yearly pensions payable may be reprized 6 out of the parsonages set over in exchange; and that “ yearly distributions with the charges of church books, &c. “ may be allowed, such as the Injunctions bind the Rec6 tors withal.

“ III. Item, That where the manred with the manors 6 is withdrawn from us, that we be not hereafter importably “ charged with the setting forth of men to war.

“ IV. Item, That perquisites of courts and wood-sales, “ and other such casual profits may be parcels of the extent “ of the manors; and that consideration may be had for the s equivalent recompence of the same: and that allowance “may be made of procurations and Synods, [Synodals,] "payable at the visitation of parsonages impropriate; and
