(2) Taylor, who is fit for Meath, and it for him. But his diocese can yet hardly afford to lose him, until the work be in some measure done, for which he was sent thither. And his best friends in that Country wish to keep him . In case he desire Meath, indeed, it cannot well be denied him. But Down, with Dromore united to it, might "accommodate all things".

(3) Jones of Clogher who, if he be removed to Meath, will get a higher rack, but not a deeper manger. The Bishop of Kilmore & Ardagh may then be translated to Clogher, and be himself succeeded by the Bishop of Dromore.

In the writer's opinion, so much of the message [sent by the Irish Administration into England,] carried over by Lord Aungier as related to the 'Doubling Ordinance' is clear and the advantage such as can easily be judged of.

And here the objection seems to arise, not from any injustice in the proposal itself, for the persons to be excepted are plainly such as "deserve to smart for their rebellious practises," but rather from the difficulty of reconciling it "strictly with the letter of His Majesty's Declaration" ...
