Mr. Lenthalls Anſwer, TO A PAPER, INTITLED, Remarks on Mr. Lenthalls Petition, Now Lying before the Honourable Houſe of Commons.

MR. Lenthall Averrs it to be True, that he never Receiv'd of Sr. John Cutler, nor Mr. Bolter, nor any other, upon the account of his Mortgage, any more then 11152l. 04s. 08d. The Rent, and Fine for renewing the Leaſe of Haſeley, to the Deane and Cannons of Windſor, being therin included.

And deny's that ever he received any Moneys, directly or indirectly, of the Right Honourable the Earle of Radnor: But what Moneys he did Re­ceive, was of Mr. Simon Folkes for ſubſiſtance Money, purſuant to an Agree­ment made with him, till the ſaid Mortgage could be removed, and touch­ing his Granting the Office of, Marſhal to Mr. Gimbert, at 1400l. per Ann. Rent, (as Mr. Folkes perpos'd) which proves in the ſaid Grant to be but 1000l. per Ann. for which Moneys he gave Notes under his Hand to Mr. Folkes, Repayable upon Demand.

That Mr. Folkes did undertake to remove the ſaid Mortgage, and pay Mr. Bolter 15000l. which he Agreed to take in full diſcharge of the ſame, with which he might well be ſatisfi'd. If Mr. Folkes will declare the Truth of the Agreements betwixt him, Mr. Bolter and Mr. Lenthall, which Mr. Lenthall hopes he will be Compelled to do, before this Honourable Houſe: It will fully ſhew how Mr. Lenthall hath been impos'd upon.

Mr. Bolter in his Anſwer in the High Court of Chancery upon his Oath, ſetts forth, no more Moneys pay'd to Mr. Lenthall by Sr. John Cutler nor himſelf, then the aforeſaid ſumm of 11152l. 04s. 08d. ſo all the reſt of the pretended great Debt upon his Eſtate and Office is ſwell'd up by Intereſt upon Intereſt and Charges, notwithſtanding they have had the Land, and Office in Poſſeſſion about 8 Years, which always yeilded Mr. Lenthall 2000l. per Ann. ſo Mr. Lenthall hopes there cannot be above 12000l. really due up­on the ſaid Mortgage.

Mr. Lenthall being in their Power, they having his Eſtate in Poſſeſſion, was forced to Sign their unreaſonable Accompts, otherwiſe he muſt have Starved.

SO he Humbly Prays he may be heard by his Councel at the Barr of this Honourable Houſe, to be Releived againſt ſo great oppreſſion, and that he may have an order, that all Deeds and Writings may be produced, and Perſons concern'd may attend.

About the encoding

Created by converting TCP files to TEI P5 using tcp2tei.xsl, TEI @ Oxford.

Editorial principles

EEBO-TCP is a partnership between the Universities of Michigan and Oxford and the publisher ProQuest to create accurately transcribed and encoded texts based on the image sets published by ProQuest via their Early English Books Online (EEBO) database ( The general aim of EEBO-TCP is to encode one copy (usually the first edition) of every monographic English-language title published between 1473 and 1700 available in EEBO.

EEBO-TCP aimed to produce large quantities of textual data within the usual project restraints of time and funding, and therefore chose to create diplomatic transcriptions (as opposed to critical editions) with light-touch, mainly structural encoding based on the Text Encoding Initiative (

The EEBO-TCP project was divided into two phases. The 25,363 texts created during Phase 1 of the project have been released into the public domain as of 1 January 2015. Anyone can now take and use these texts for their own purposes, but we respectfully request that due credit and attribution is given to their original source.

Users should be aware of the process of creating the TCP texts, and therefore of any assumptions that can be made about the data.

Text selection was based on the New Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature (NCBEL). If an author (or for an anonymous work, the title) appears in NCBEL, then their works are eligible for inclusion. Selection was intended to range over a wide variety of subject areas, to reflect the true nature of the print record of the period. In general, first editions of a works in English were prioritized, although there are a number of works in other languages, notably Latin and Welsh, included and sometimes a second or later edition of a work was chosen if there was a compelling reason to do so.

Image sets were sent to external keying companies for transcription and basic encoding. Quality assurance was then carried out by editorial teams in Oxford and Michigan. 5% (or 5 pages, whichever is the greater) of each text was proofread for accuracy and those which did not meet QA standards were returned to the keyers to be redone. After proofreading, the encoding was enhanced and/or corrected and characters marked as illegible were corrected where possible up to a limit of 100 instances per text. Any remaining illegibles were encoded as <gap>s. Understanding these processes should make clear that, while the overall quality of TCP data is very good, some errors will remain and some readable characters will be marked as illegible. Users should bear in mind that in all likelihood such instances will never have been looked at by a TCP editor.

The texts were encoded and linked to page images in accordance with level 4 of the TEI in Libraries guidelines.

Copies of the texts have been issued variously as SGML (TCP schema; ASCII text with mnemonic sdata character entities); displayable XML (TCP schema; characters represented either as UTF-8 Unicode or text strings within braces); or lossless XML (TEI P5, characters represented either as UTF-8 Unicode or TEI g elements).

Keying and markup guidelines are available at the Text Creation Partnership web site.
