April 11.Report to the King from the Treasury Lords on a draft royal letter as follows for allowing 92,750l. on the Earl of Ranelagh's account as Vice-Treasurer of Ireland.

Appending: (a) said draft royal letter to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. On the accounts of the said Vice-Treasurer ending Mar. 20 last said Earl demanded an allowance of 92,750l. as paid by him to such uses and persons as the King (pursuant to a power reserved to the King in the present [Irish] establishment) had from time to time since 1675, Dec. 25, ordered and appointed by royal sign manual. The said sum was not allowed him by the Commissioners of Accounts in Ireland by reason that the vouchers for justifying the payment thereof did not appear before them. But said Earl declared that the reasons why he had not produced said vouchers before said Commissioners was because the King had by repeated letters declared that the accounts of moneys so reserved to the King's dispose should be examined and taken in England and not by the Commissioners of Accounts in Ireland and therefore he hath delivered to the King an account of the particular disbursements of the said 92,750l. together with the vouchers relating thereto. The King hereby declares that he has caused the account of the said 92,750l. and the vouchers thereto to be examined "and thereupon we find that the said sum hath been paid and issued here by our said Vice-Treasurer as we have thought fit from time to time to direct him." It is therefore hereby ordered that said sum be allowed him in his account ending Mar. 20 last and that without demanding any vouchers for the same.

Although in strictness we cannot differ from the opinion of the Lords Commissioners for Tangier in this case, we submit the whole to your Majesty's mercy.Warrants not Relating to Money, IX, pp. 68–9.
