The Treasury Lords to Sir Edward Seymore. The Navy Commissioners have made frequent representations to us that your accounts as Navy Treasurer 1673–81 are not yet finished notwithstanding repeated Treasury directions. The said Commissioners state they have signed all your ledgers except the last which was and still is forborne till you give an account of the defalcations for the slopsellers, [Chatham] Chest, chaplains and others by producing receipts for the same. In regard this matter has depended so long and put a great stop to the passing the subsequent accounts of the Navy and that there are many sums depending by way of imprest (besides those which may appear to be in [your] the accomptant's hands) which cannot well be put in process till the accounts are duly passed in the Exchequer, we cannot any longer justify stay of process against you unless you clear with the Navy Commissioners by the end of next term.
