Before going thither you are to give notice thereof and to signify that you intend to let licences at lower and easier rates than heretofore, to the end to encourage the sale of wines. (4) You are not to let any license to any whereby he may monopolise the trade of selling wines or have power to let licences to sub-takers. (5) All leases given to present wine sellers are to date from Lady Day last, and all leases to new takers are to commence from the day of the taking. (6) You are to keep a perfect register of licences granted, whereby it may appear what effect it has had in increasing the sale of wines. Ibid, pp. 399-400.

Report to the King from Treasurer Clifford on the petition of Col. John Fitz Patrick. I forbore to pass the grant of quit rents which was prepared for petitioner because it expressed neither the value of the quit rents nor the lands out of which nor the persons by whom payable, whereby it was uncertain what your Majesty doth grant, "since which time I am informed by the petitioner that the lands of which the quit rents are desired were all set out to the officers and soldiers of Col. Stubber's and Col. Stubb's and Col. Abbot's regiments and are now held by them or by others under them, and he hath given me a list of the names of the lands out of which the said rents are issuing, with a particular of most of the rents, amounting to 396l. 2s. 8d. per an., beside some other rents amounting to about 100l. per an., of which he hath given in the names of the lands out of which it is payable but could not set down the particular rents payable out of each place." These facts being now ascertained the grant will not differ from other grants of grace and the amount will be practically the 500l. per an. in rents which your Majesty is inclined to grant to recompense petitioner's service.

Same to same. As to the question of the commencement of the Act for the encouragement of the Greenland trade, I think it should be accompted from April 20 last, and that upon paying the new duty the merchant should have 5l. abated him according to the said Act. [2] I do not think fit that the victuallers should have the allowance granted by the Act in cases of corn exported for garrisons or upon any victualling bills.

[5] I think it very necessary for His Majesty's service that Mr. Kirkby should be sent into Ireland and the Isle of Man to prevent abuses in the Plantation trade. Ibid, p. 404.
