Copy of the 2nd Part of Mop Fair document discussing Punishment for dereliction of said Fair

This document (Copy of the 2nd Part of Mop Fair document discussing Punishment for dereliction of said Fair) is said to be an attempt by worthies (Councillors. Aldermen. Clergymen, Property Owners etc) of the Town of Stratford upon Avon, to put into law punishment for refusing the King’s recent Mop Fair Charter (1676) to come to fruition. Apparently there was objection from many of Stratford’s shopkeepers and other businessmen due to the disruption that the Fair would bring.
