The several Papers hereunto annexed, containing an Account how, and in what Method, the East and West-India, and Straits Squadrons, were victualled at their going out; it is necessary to observe, in Answer to the Second Part of the Question, relating to this Matter; viz. By whom they were victualled; That it has been done, according to the usual Customs of the Navy, by the Commissioners for Victualling, and their Agents and Officers, at the several Ports: But as for the Beer, Butter, and Cheese, for the Ships gone to the Mediterranean; and the Beer to the Ships of the East and West-India Squadrons, in regard they could not possibly stow the full Proportion, the Commissioners for Victualling were ordered to put into the Hands of the respective Commanders in Chief of those Squadrons, Money, or Credits, to buy the usual Species, in lieu thereof.

The Straits Squadron was ordered to be victualled for Eight Months, at whole Allowance, of all Species; which at short Allowance, was to serve Twelve Months: But at was thought necessary, that of Beer, Butter, and Cheese, the Ships Companies should go to whole Allowance, in regard they will not keep so long as the other Species: For what Part of the said Beer, Butter, and Cheese, which the Ships could not stow, the Commissioners for Victualling were directed to furnish Admiral Aylmer with Money, Bills, or Credits, sufficient to procure Wine and Oil, as usual, in those Parts.

As to the last Part of this Question; viz. By whom they are to be victualled, during their Continuance abroad; the Commissioners for Victualling the Navy are directed to provide, and send to the Straits, a Supply of Provisions for the Squadron there; and for the Squadron gone to the West, and that going to the East-Indies, if their Stay abroad shall be longer than their Provisions will last, the like Orders will be given.
