be impossible for him to make any profitt or benefitt by his

you will be pleased to give directions to your Attorney and
Sollicitor Generall, that nothing may pass from your Majtie in
the new intended Grant aforesaid nor in any other which may

Interest granted to your Petitioner in the said Charter of

and happy Raigne over us.
