A document, dated 8 October 1645, bearing the signature of the poet and philosopher Edward Lord Herbert of Cherbury, acknowledging receipt of his 'weeklie allowance' of £10 from Thomas ffauconberge [Fauconberg or Fauconbridge], Esq., Receiver General of the Public Revenue.
The receipt also contains the signatures of two witnesses, including Matth[ew] Clay. Although Herbert had been granted a weekly pension of £20 by Parliament the previous February the present receipt is for only half that amount, possibly on account of a warrant of 6 June cited in the receipt.
Herbert of Cherbury, Edward Herbert, Baron, 1583-1648
