Auditor's Memorandum: The sum of 467,957l. 4s. 6d. is herein allowed by the King's Warrant 11 June 1716 for payments for subsistence, pay and clothing of several British Regiments in Spain and Portugal and for the subsistence and pay of the British prisoners of war in Spain; as also the sum of 866l. 4s. 6d. paid to Major Giles Stephens and expended in raising recruits; these sums are to be charged to the respective Regiments upon their being cleared but if it appear that they should not be so charged then they shall be surcharged on the Accomptant.
The money paid by the Accomptant to the British Regiments for subsistence and pay and allowed in the preceding Accompts for 1707 to 1710 and the sum of 6,992l. 11s. 6¾d. for the Earl of Barrymore's Regiment in 1705 are to be charged and surcharged likewise.
The sum of 1,718l. for Additional Levy money allowed in 1710 is to be charged to the respective Regiments and set against their claim for levy money.
Several other sums appear likewise chargeable.
The sum of 764l. 13s. 3¼d. paid to Messrs. Man and Maccullock for clothing the Earl of Barrymore's Regiment formed into a Regiment of Dragoons under Col. Pearce is to be charged to the Regiment and surcharged on the Paymaster General in such accompt where the full pay of the said Regiment shall be allowed.

The sums of 3,345l. 18s. 4½d. within the time of this Accompt and of 5,242l. 13s. 6¼d. in 1710 for bread to the Gibraltar Garrison are to be placed as an extraordinary expense of the said Garrison; bread is alleged to have been allowed over and above the Garrison's pay on account of the excessive dearness of all necessaries there; this matter is to be settled on clearing the Regiment.
The sum of 2,365l. 15s. 5½d. paid in 1710 as a Bounty to the Non-Commissioned Officers and Soldiers of the Foot and of the Train of Artillery that were at the Battle of Saragossa in consideration of the loss of their knapsacks and other baggage, destroyed by the Enemy, and of the wear of shoes and stockings on their marches before the battle and to Madrid thereafter is to be charged as an Extraordinary of the War.
Further memorandum. The sum of 6,558l. was paid in 1705 for 499 horses delivered in Portugal to Maj. Gen. Harvey's Regiment of Horse and Lord Raby's Regiment of Dragoons.

This matter remains to be adjusted on clearing the said Regiments.
The sum of 129l. 17s. 8d. expended by Mr. Johnson and Mr. Luellin on the recruit horses sent from Ireland in 1705 remains to be adjusted.
The sum of 26,712l. was paid in 1710 to the Agents of the six Regiments of Dragoons raised in Portugal to purchase 247 horses for each Regiment. It appears from the Muster Rolls 1710 and 1711 that these Regiments were not complete. The Colonels or their Agents are to render an account and the balance is to be charged on their pay.
The sum of 2,036l. 2s. 11¼d. paid in 1710 to Admiral Somelsdyke and other commanders of Dutch ships for freight and provisions for 1,582 men of the German Regiment of Horse under Lieut. Gen. Eck, transported from Italy to Catalonia, is to be charged to His Imperial Majesty.

Clothing provided in 1709 by John Robyns amounting to 31,663l. 12s. 9d. for the King of Spain's Forces has been charged to the said King's subsidy, but having been consigned to Henry Vincent, then Commissary, he is to be charged therewith.

Arms and tents have been delivered out of the Office of Ordnance to the British Regiments 8 March 1701–2 to 9 Oct. 1712 to the value of 39,127l. 14s. 6d. whereof remains to be deducted 26,605l. 16s. 7d.
Sums paid during the preceding account to Antonio Belvitches and Joseph Larissa, contractors for furnishing mules for the Army in Spain, as also 109,321l. 13s. 9¾d. paid in 1710 and 33,250l. in 1711 are to be deducted on clearing the demands for that service, as also is 5,018l. 9s. paid them upon their bread contract for 1708.
Of the sum of 7,887l. 13s. 7½d. paid Ralph Bucknall for the Prisoners taken at Almanza, allowed in the Accompt for 1707 a memorandum to the Accompt for 1709 shows that 7,660l. 18s. 2d. only has been answered by him.
By the same Accompt it appears that the sum of 8,750l. has been paid to Brig. Lillemaris for the Dutch Forces, sent on the expedition under Earl Rivers, to enable them to furnish themselves with provisions while detained at Torbay by contrary winds: this sum is to be repaid by the States General of the United Provinces.

Third Memorandum: Whereas great quantities of corn have been bought for the Forces by William Chetwynd, Envoy at Genoa, and consigned by him to the Commissaries, the said Commissaries are to render their Accompts of the disposal thereof: and the value of the said corn is to be charged upon the Persons, Regiments, Troops or Companies that received the same.
