Same to the Customs Commissioners to take only the lesser duty on coals exported or to be exported to the Plantations as follows. In a memorial of Dec. 23 last the said Commissioners represented that by the Act of Tonnage and Poundage, 12 Car. II, c. 4, sea coals exported in English ships are to pay 5s. the chaldron London measure and 8s. Newcastle measure. By the Act of Trade, 15 Car. II, c. 7, the said duty, with particular regard to the encouragement of the English Plantations, was lessened to 1s. London measure and 1s. 8d. Newcastle measure. The Act of Tonnage and Poundage now subsisting [2 Wm. and Mary, c. 4] grants the said duties for four years according to the rates as in the Act of 12 Car. II, c. 4, and rules and orders thereto annexed "other than such concerning which it is otherwise provided or ordained by any Act made in the last Parliament." "Now though this last grant is passed as a Public Aid, and so to be construed most beneficially for their Majesties' advantage, and though the said Act of 15 Car. II, c. 7, be not particularly mentioned therein as revived (as many others are), yet inasmuch as the said Act of Trade is generally looked upon to be a perpetual law and that the Plantations do not deserve less encouragement now than when that law was first passed in their favour, the question arises whether the greater or lesser duties upon coals is now to be taken : and we [the Treasury Lords] having received the opinion of their Majesties' Attorney General that the law is not clear in this case, but it is a probable opinion that the lesser duty may be taken according to the Act 15 Car. II [c. 7], that the law was understood and practised so in the reign of King James II, that the most favourable construction is to be used for the publique good and this lowering is affirmed to be a prudent policy for the encouragement of the Plantations and the increase of navigation." Out Letters (Customs) XII, p. 383.

A particular was made out 1687, Oct. 31, pursuant to a Treasury warrant of 1687, June 16 (supra, Calendar of Treasury Books, Vol. VIII, p. 1693), but before the same was rated Mr. Fisher, then Deputy Surveyor of Crown Lands, found that some of the premises were assigned to another person, and Mr. Price was thereby unable to make a surrender of the lease in being.
