This is the original draft of the articles of Limerick in Ireland, which were signed October third, 1691. But in transcribing the fair copy which was actually signed, Mr. Payzant, my clerk, in whose hand the body of the articles are wrote, left out in the second article these words, viz.: and all such as are under their protection in those counties. This was not known till the day after, when sir Theobald Butler and another of the commissioners from the city of Limerick came to me: but the mistake could not be corrected at that time, because general Ginkel's son was actually gone upon his journey to England with the articles, as signed. Afterwards the Irish had the advantage given them of this omission by a broad seal and an act of parliament; and, indeed, it was but just, for those words, viz., all such as are under their protection, etc., were agreed upon to be part of the articles at the very first meeting with the commissioners from the city. The words interlined are in sir Theobald Butler's hand.
