William Jephson to the Customs Commissioners, enclosing a copy [missing] of an Order in Council, dated yesterday, for putting an embargo on ships. I have sent the original to the Treasury Lords to be signed, but they do not meet till to-morrow, and it's uncertain whether a quorum of them can be found to-day to sign it. Please give such order that the service may not suffer by this delay and I will not fail to send you the original order with my Lords' [subscription of] warrant thereupon either to-night or to-morrow morning. (Said Treasury warrant dated July 10 to said Commissioners to observe said Order of the Queen in Council prefixed, dated Whitehall, July 9, for an embargo or stay to be made of all ships and vessels whatsoever now within or which hereafter shall come into any of the ports, harbours or roads of England, Wales or Berwick on Tweed, until further order ; such ships and vessels only excepted as are or shall be imported [sic for employed] in his Majesty's service.)
