Memorandum.
That this accomptant has not charged himself with any deductions from the pay of the (Regiments within the time of the accompt) for the charges of transportation.
Memorandum.
It does not appear from Mr. Hudson's account of the charge of the Hospitals annexed to the General Warrant that the sum of 9,054l. 11s. 3d. allowed in Mr. Fox's account for the year 1704 and the sum of 9,361l. 5s. 11d. allowed in this accompt are either of them the full sums that were to be deducted from the said Forces or [was] the whole [sum] that was received of the said Hudson by the Paymasters. Nor does it appear by the said account that vouchers were delivered to the Physician General and others who have certified the same, nor [is] any authority produced for their finally allowing the same. Therefore it seems requisite that the said Mr. Hudson should accompt for the several sums by him received upon accompt of the said Hospitals.
