Report to Treasurer Godolphin by William Blathwayt, Auditor of the Plantations, on the petition of Leonard Compere, Receiver General of her Majesty's Revenue in Jamaica, ut supra p. 636, desiring to be exempt from the rule lately established by the Lord Treasurer for officers of the revenue in America to give security in England as well as in those parts where their offices are executed.
Hereon Blathwayt reports that the said Compere and his uncle Thomas Martyn Esq. have for above 30 years held the said office and discharged the duty thereof without complaint. The said Compere is under a security of 5000l. which he has given in Jamaica pursuant to the direction of an Act of Assembly there "for the well and true accompting as often as he shall be thereto required by the Governor and Council or the Assembly of that island." In 1692 the said Compere sustained a loss of 11,000l. by the earthquake which then happened and by the French invasion there the year following which loss and the weight of the above security render him (as he alleges) altogether incapable of procuring securities here in England.
For your Lordship's satisfaction he offers to make oath as to the sufficiency of his security given as aforesaid in Jamaica and has undertaken to procure a certificate from the Governor there of the ability of the said securities. He further alleges that the whole revenue is appropriated to the support of the Government of Jamaica as appears by the several Acts [of Assembly there] and that the demands thereof are so constant upon him as never at any time to leave any sum in the hands of his deputy equal to the security given : for which reason he hopes your Lordship will not require from him any further security.
Upon the strictest enquiry into the condition of the said patentee I do not find that he is able to procure any further security in England, but depends upon the credit and value of his place in Jamaica, whereby his deputy has been encouraged to give the security there as directed by the Act of Assembly in that island. "However, I am humbly of opinion that the same security in Jamaica may be ordered to be extended not only to his accompting before the Governor and Council or the Assembly of that island but also to her Majesty according to the course of the Exchequer in England." Out Letters (Plantations Auditor) II, pp. 316-8.

The goods were reported by the ship's master as the goods of an alien before the seizure and therefore as they were so brought from a proper port and in a ship duly qualified and as the importation of them by an alien seems to have been through ignorance and surprise, without purpose of breaking the law, the proprietor may deserve relief in a case so very particular.
