J. Taylour (in the absence of William Lowndes) to James Brydges. The Lord Treasurer has received your letter of the 19th inst., new style, concerning the difference of the value of the same coins between Amsterdam and Antwerp. Before the receipt thereof he had from Mr. Hill a translation of a letter from Mr. Jacobus de Coninck of Antwerp on the same subject with the prices current in both cases. I enclose same herein. By comparing them his Lordship finds that there is a very great advance (allowing for charges of sending species from Holland to Brabant or Flanders) not less than 9 or 10 per cent. For this reason he desires you will immediately order Mr. Sweet to repair to Antwerp and to take all possible care that this advantage be duly accounted for.
Appending : Copy of said letter from Jacobus de Coninck dated Antwerp 14 June 1706. I gave myself the honour of writing to you the 10th of last month under covert of a friend at the Hague to assure you of my respect and tender you my service. We are delivered of the French since 5 or 6 days. My Lord Duke past through this city and sett out yesterday morning for Ghent. So that we may now expect some new enterprise.
I believe the army will be paid in bills on this place as was usual in the late war. I think it needless to tell you more since the course of our payment is so well known to you. There must be good sums remitted in bills on Amsterdam, which may be negotiated here and orders given to some banker of that place to remit from thence or send species hither ; and above all things care must be taken to provide beforehand in order to manage the exchange to the best advantage. Our coyns in exchange are as formerly and the Crown in current money goeth for 56 stuivers which is 162/3 difference from exchange [Bank] money. In the late war it was but 8⅓. But as the difference is to [too] great in regard to the Holland money people are of opinion that the species will be reduced and set upon the foot they were on in the late war.
Hereinclosed goeth the course of our species in exchange [or Bank money] and current money. The exchange to Amsterdam is 1½ per cent. loss to the bills and in current [money] 5¾ [per cent. loss] ; for London [it is] 33s. 4⅓d. ; but that for Amsterdam will rise and that for London fall, because of the great sums that must be paid here.

Same by same to same for a royal warrant to establish allowances as follows for fire and candle for Portsmouth Garrison ; not exceeding 500l. per an. as from June 24 inst.
Prefixing : the like report. The total allowance for fire and candle in the existing Establishment of the Guards and Garrisons is 1900l. per an. Your Lordship thought fit that a further allowance should be made for such soldiers as shall occasionally from time to time be lodged in barracks at Portsmouth, to prevent the great mortality and frequent desertions happening in that Garrison for want of such conveniences. We have consulted Lieut. Gen. Erle, Governor of the said Garrison, and propose allowances to each Company of 8 fires with 1 bushel of coals each viz. half a bushel per week for May to August with 1 bushel a week for March-April, Sept.-Oct. ; and 1½ bushels for the remaining 4 months, and similarly 1 pound of candle per Company per day to be similarly distributed through the year. There are in the said Garrison sometimes 2 Regiments or more but seldom less than 17 or 18 Companies. At 13 chaldrons Portsmouth measure (making 416 bushels at 32 bushels the chaldron) the usual complement of 17 Companies would be 221 chaldrons and 6205 pounds of candles. We propose that the Governor or Commander-in-Chief be instructed to lay in a stock during the summer months when prices are lower and that he appoint a barrackman to take charge thereof and to deliver it out weekly and to render an account monthly. The total would then be
£ s. d.

6205 candles at 4s. 6d. a dozen 116 6 10½

Hereon the Comptrollers report that in regard the Officers began raising their men in January and subsisted them to April 20 following and also transported them to Holland at their own charge (depending upon their being established from April 1) the levy money of 40s. may be made up to 60s. per man.

Same by same to same for a same for carrying to the 6th Aug. 1706 the offreckonings of the Earl of Barrymore's Regiment of Foot and to apply same towards paying the 3294l. due to the clothiers of said Regiment and for the payment of the sum of 739l. 18s. 3d. which will remain to complete the payment of the said debt after such application of the offreckonings.
Prefixing : the like report on the memorial of the said Earl setting forth that his Regiment being on the Portugal Establishment was employed in the defence of Gibraltar and in the reduction of Barcelona and of the kingdom of Valencia, from whence several Captains, subalterns and non-commission officers were despatched to raise recruits in England and on the 6th Jan. 1705-6 the remaining private soldiers were taken by Lieut. Col. Edward Pearce, then the Commanding Officer, to mount a Regiment of Dragoons under a commission given him by the Earl of Peterborough, with their clothes, accoutrements, arms and tents, the Regiment at that time owing to the clothiers 2011l. 2s. 4d. for the remainder of an assignment on the offreckonings : further that the Queen being pleased by royal warrant of May 11 last to continue the said Earl of Barrymore's Regiment has ordered him to raise men in England for reinstating it : wherefore he claims consideration for the above and of their subsistence from January 6 last.
Hereon the Comptrollers report that the said Regiment of Dragoons was formed in Valencia about 6 Jan. last old style under Lieut. Col. Pearce and took over 5 Captains, 5 Lieutenants, 7 Ensigns and 425 privates of said Barrymore's Regiment and the entire clothing of the Regiment was given to the effective men, who were mounted Dragoons, and to 200 Miqueletts with all arms, accoutrements and tents. We think the offreckonings of Barrymore's said Regiment should be carried on to 6 August next (being as soon as the said Regiment can be supposed ready to be new clothed) towards discharging the 3294l. debt due to the clothiers by the last contract for clothing, which was dated 1704-5 March 4. The said offreckonings to Aug. 6 next will reduce said debt to 739l. 18s. 3d. which may be issued to put them out of debt before they begin a new clothing ; and the same should be charged on the said Regiment of Dragoons on the head of moneys allowed by Parliament for the services of the forces in Catalonia anno 1706 "and we are further of opinion that the Officers of the said Regiment of the Earl of Barrymore are entitled to their pay since 6 January, the said Regiment still subsisting, notwithstanding these men were taken from them."
