That from and after the Promulgation of this Act, all Debts contracted out of the
Limits of the Isle of Man, shall be recoverable in the said Isle in such and the like
Manner, to all Intents and Purposes, as if such Debts had been contracted
between the same Parties within the Limits of the said Isle.
2 Not to extend to persons residing in Island six Months previous to Act,

or to Persons in the Service of Government who have departed with

Intention to return

Provided always, that Nothing hereinbefore contained shall extend, or be
construed to extend, to affect any Person or Persons who shall have been
usually resident within the said Isle, for and during the Space of six Calendar
Months immediately preceding the Day of the Promulgation of this Act, or who
