In a letter dated 10 March, 1703-4, old style, Treasurer Godolphin writes as follows to Richard Hill, then at Turin, as Envoy Extraordinary to the Duke of Savoy :
"I have several proposals now before me for the next remittances to Savoy of which I am endeavouring to take the best ; but I dont know if the accounts would not be more regularly kept by agreeing for the exchange at a rate certain and by paying our subsidies to Count Maffei here who might remit them at his own conveniency."
