T. Harley to Mr. Brydges. When I wrote to you by my Lord Treasurer's command to advance 10l. to each of the wives of the Lieutenants serving in New York who are willing to go over to their husbands it was meant as an expedient to quieten the importunities of those women till such time as my Lord should have the list of half pay Officers laid before him, and money should be ordered to your hands or Mr. Howe's to satisfy same. In either case your account might have been easily set right in respect to those advances which are to be placed to their husbands' account of half pay. But when your letter acquaints my Lord that the orders which my Lord gives concerning the said wives must be directed to the Paymasters of the half pay Officers who act in that business separately from your Office, “his Lordship is much surprised that such separate Paymasters should be made or appointed without his participation and as the Exchequer has no cognisance of any such separate Paymasters his Lordship (who is persuaded there is no need of severing this business from the Office of Paymaster General) will order the half pay to be issued to the hands of such General Paymaster, so as the public money granted for that service may be paid and accounted for in the course and method of the Exchequer as it ought to be.” Out Letters (General) XXI, p. 7.

I am to acquaint you that her Majesty hath already charged her Civil List revenues with 4l. a day to General Nicholson, who is now on his voyage to those parts, with very large and extensive commissions from her Majesty, and my Lord is of opinion Nicholson will be capable of executing whatever instructions it might be thought necessary to give a Surveyor without bringing any new expense on her Majesty for performing that office, especially at a time when her Majesty's [Civil List] revenues by the present lowness of their income are so little able to bear the same.
