Feb. 15 ; and 1,460l. remaining unpaid of the 1,500l. granted him by the privy seal of 1664, Aug. 9, for secret service without account).

Report to the King from Treasurer Danby on the petition of Charles Leave. It appears from the report of the Auditor for co.

By direction of the Chancellor of the Exchequer the said Auditor apportioned this arrear to be paid as follows : 924l. 2s. 6¾½d. by the executors of said Duke : 151l. 10s. 3¾d. by Lady Dacre ; 78l. 9s. 8¾½d. by Francis Wrenham, and 168l. 3s. 71/8d. by Mr. Phillip Leman.
