Privy Seal directed to the Treasury Lords. For carrying on the late confederacy between His Majesty and the Bishop of Münster Sir George Carteret, Treasurer of the Navy, was employed to receive and dispose of certain sums of money for that service. For this purpose 182,000l. was imprested to him at the Receipt and there was paid to him by Edward Backwell 25,600l., which appearing to His Majesty not to be sufficient he directed that 50,000l. out of the money imprested to Carteret for the Navy should be employed for the service with the Bishop of Münster, "a considerable part whereof the said Sir George Carteret doth affirm to be so employed." In consequence of the war it was difficult to have money remitted opportunely, and it was found the best way to buy tin to be transported into Flanders and sold there. By a sign manual of 1665, Aug 11, Carteret and the Duke of Albemarle were ordered to contract with the Tin Farmers for 500 tons of tin to be delivered to Benjamin Glanvile, merchant, to be consigned to Alderman Baokwell at Ostend to be disposed of as he should think fit for furnishing the second payment of moneys he was to make in Flanders for the King's service. Similarly for 300 tons more by the late warrant of 1665, Dec. 20. Further the following royal warrants have been issued for payment of money and other services connected with the said confederacy, viz.: 1665, May 1, for 2,000l. to Lord Arlington; 1666, Sept. 24, directing that the several sums of 102,000l. and 40,000l. (being parcel of the abovesaid 182,000l.) should by said Carteret be accounted for for the service of the Bishop of Münster, "for which the said moneys were indeed issued and our directions given him soe to imploy the same though wee not haveing then publiquely owned the said confederacy it was not soe exprest in the letters of Privy Seal whereby the said moneys were imprested to him"; 1666. Oct. 1, for 1,100l. to Edward Backwell as the King's free gift to him for his good and faithful service in negotiating the payment of moneys to the said Bishop of Münster; 1667–7, March 20, for the allowing in account to said Carteret on his production of the receipt of the said Bishop of Münster or the acknowledgment of Sir William Temple, the King's agent with the said Bishop; 1667, May 1, for the allowance of interest on money by said Carteret received [borrowed] for said service; 1667, May 10, for the allowance of such poundage to said Carteret as is allowed him on his Navy accounts. His Majesty hereby requires all the said warrants to be observed as fully as if they were addressed immediately and expressly to the Treasury.Treasury Miscellanea Warrants Early XV. pp. 132–5.
