Editor's Note.—There are two copies of this Account; one is with the General Accounts of the Excise in A.O.1/1080/741 with—for the most part—Arabic numerals; this would appear to be a draft which may have been kept for convenience with the Declared Accounts of the Excise: it is not shown at the end as having been declared before the usual Officers. The other (A.O.1/645/250)has been labelled among the Customs Accounts to which it certainly does not belong; the Declaration is signed in the ordinary manner.
