Same to Mr. Morrice. The clothiers of her Majesty's Forces in Portugal have applied to the Lord Treasurer for payment of the offreckonings due to them for that service from Aug. 25 last and on reference to Edward Pauncefort, Deputy to the Paymaster General of the Forces, it appears that the offreckonings applicable to the said clothing are unpaid from Aug. 24 last by reason there are no muster rolls returned from thence into the Paymaster General's Office since that time. The frequent and pressing applications of the said clothiers are very uneasy to the Lord Treasurer yet he is unwilling to do anything in the matter faster than the muster rolls are returned. Please take all possible care that the rolls be perfected and despatched to the Paymaster General here as soon as possible and so from time to time hereafter so that the offreckonings may be the more regularly issued to the clothiers.

Same by same to same for a like warrant for payment of 760l. 10s. 10½d. to Capt. Thomas Lloyd, Commander of the Company at Newfoundland, and 167l. 17s. 10d. to the executors of Capt. Powell for disbursements for said Company as follows.
Prefixing : report by Arthur Moore, dated Army Accounts Controllers' Office 8 June inst. on said Lloyd's petition.
Petitioner sets forth that he has advanced money and taken up on his own credit provisions and clothing for the necessities of the garrison there who were reduced to great extremities by the late arrival of the supplies. Likewise Capt. Needham petitions on behalf of Major Powell, late Captain of the said Company, praying 167l. 17s. 10d. for disbursements for provisions and other necessities for it whilst he was Captain. Likewise Mr. Thurston petitions that a general state of the accounts of the said Company may be made.
We have stated the account of the said Company from 1 Sept. 1698 until 1704 Dec. 24 which will be balanced by the royal warrant for 471l. 13s. 9d. to the Company in supply of a loss of so much at sea.
Capt. Lloyd has disbursed 267l. 5s. 8d. in victualling, clothing, supporting of spies and French prisoners, persons employed to sound the harbours and other necessary occasions of the garrison. He also provided provisions for the Company to the amount of 397l. 18s. 2½d. which were so bought by reason the supplies did not arrive timely enough from England. The cost of these provisions come to three and four times the value of the provisions in England. The Company ought to be charged with 187l. 9s. 0d. therefor at 6d. a day [per man] : to be charged to subsistence : also 95l. 7s. 0d. which he disbursed for clothing ought to be charged to offreckonings and 92l. 3s. 8d. ought to be paid by the Victualling Office for so much sent short to provide beer. Similarly of the demands of Capt. Powell 72l. 9s. 7½d. ought to be deducted out of the subsistence of the Company. "We are informed the gunners at Newfoundland have been from time to time supplied out of the provisions sent to the Company and that the Board of Ordnance have notwithstanding deducted 6d. per diem out of each gunner's pay for provisions, amounting in all to 270l. or thereabouts." This sum ought to go towards making good the demands of Lloyd and Powell. "Upon the whole [matter] we are humbly of opinion that it will be much for the public service if the Lords Commissioners for Trade and Plantations will lay before your Lordship a scheme how the garrison and Company at Newfoundland may be maintained with less disadvantage to the Government than now they are."
Followed by : the said statement of the account of the said Independent Company : total charge 9978l. 12s. 9¾d. total discharge 9990l. 11s. 7d. "The Agent hath advanced out of the subsistence 65l. 9s. 4¼d. to pay for clothes which must be repaid him out of the offreckonings arising after 24 Dec. 1704 and that sum with the balance of 11l. 18s. 9¼d. will fully clear the Company to the 24 Dec. last."
