And whereas it is provided by the said Proclamation that any

mulgation of the said Proclamation, were by law current and a
legal tender in any Colony or Possession to which the said Pro-
clamation extended should until by Proclamation otherwise
directed, continue to be so current and a legal tender at the same
rate and up to the same amount as heretofore:

And whereas under the provisions so applied His Majesty may

Now, therefore, we, the said Prince Arthur of Connaught, Lord
Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord High Chancellor of Great Britain,
and Lord President of the Council, being authorized thereto
by His Majesty's said Commission, do hereby, by and with the
advice of His Majesty's Privy Council, on His Majesty's behalf,
