(1) The 476,735l. 15s. 6¼d. allowed for subsistence, pay and clothing is to be charged on the respective Regiments on their being cleared. So much as they shall make appear not so to be chargeable is to be surcharged on this accomptant. Likewise chargeable on the Regiments &c. are the

5,242l. 13s. 6¼d. for bread to the Garrison of Gibraltar: alleged to be allowed to the Garrison over and above their pay because of the excessive dearness of all kinds of necessaries there: but no warrant produced for this.
2,365l. 15s. 5½d. bounty to those at the Battle of Saragossa for accoutrements lost on their long marches before that battle and to Madrid after: for which no [royal] directions have been given.

129l. 17s. 8d. for recruit horses from Ireland remains to be adjusted: the receiving Regiments not yet known.
26,712l. for horses for six Regiments of Dragoons raised in Portugal. It appears by the 1710 and 1711 muster rolls of these Regiments that they were not complete. The Colonels are therefore to render an account of the horses actually bought.
2,036l. 2s. 11¼d. for freight for 1,582 men of the German Regt. of Horse under Lieut. Gen. Ech: a proportionable part thereof for the victuals included therein is to be charged to the accompt of the Emperor.

39,127l. 14s. 2d. for tents &c. delivered out of the Ordnance Stores between 8 Mar. 1701–2 and 9 Oct. 1712. Of this the sum of 26,605l. 16s. 7d. remains to be deducted from the Forces.

So likewise 226l. 16s. 5½d. remaining unanswered by Ralph Bucknall of the 7,887l. 13s. 7½d. for prisoners at Almanza.
