Bland and Fowke, concerning the Receivership of York.
They were of Opinion, "That the Forfeiture of One Patentee may be the Forfeiture of th'other's Right; notwithstanding the Word in the Patent runs. "That they shall execute the said Office conjunctim & divisim;" and particularly that they were both to put in Security before Execution thereof; and they find that only the Elder Brother did put in Security, and so conceive that the other Brother hath forfeited his Right therein for Want thereof."
Ordered, That the Committee of the Revenue shall give Direction, that a legal Course be taken, whereby it may appear whether John Bland hath forfeited his Right to the Receivership of Yorkshire or not; and that, in the mean Time, the Committee do take Course for the Revenues to be received for the Use of the State.
