The sum of 186l. 11s. allowed in the Accompt for 1712 as paid for recruits raised in England and delivered over to Regiments on the Irish Establishment, is to be repaid by the Irish Treasury.
The value of the bread delivered the Foreign Forces by Adrian Vanderkaa and Joseph Casthano, contractors for bread in 1712, is to be charged upon the Forces when their arrears of pay shall come to be satisfied viz. for 31,398 loaves delivered to the Holstein troops, 638l. 18s. 1½d.; for 5,293 loaves delivered to Baron de Waleff's Walloon Regiment, 107l. 14s. 0½d.; for 63,788½ loaves delivered to the Danes, 1,298l. 0s. 4¼d.; for 73,687 loaves delivered to the Saxons, 1,499l. 8s. 10d.; for 4,777 loaves delivered to the Palatines, 97l. 4s. 1d.; for 195,078½ loaves delivered to the Hanover Troops, 3,969l. 12s. 4¼d.; and for 105,157 loaves delivered to the Hessians, 2,139l. 16s. 4¼d.; as certified by Henry Watkins; there was likewise allowed the said Contractors proviandt gelt payable by such of the Troops as did not take bread from them, viz. by the British Troops 1,237l. 19s. 1d. and by the Foreign Troops abovementioned 1,288l. 7s. 5d.; which sums appear to be chargeable to the pay of the said Forces, the same having been deducted in preceding years (except the sum of 4,076l. 4s. 0½d. surcharged in the present Accompt as deducted from the Danes, Saxons, Palatines and Holsteiners).
The Foreign Troops are further chargeable with the deduction of 2½ per cent. for all monies paid or to be paid to them for pay, subsidies and other allowances for the year 1712 as also from the times to which the said deduction was last paid or deducted, over and above the sum of 9,845l. 5s. 6d. wherewith the Accomptant has charged himself in 1712.
This Accomptant is to be charged in his subsequent Accompt with all sums as have come to his hands for interest of Tallies and Exchequer Bills as also with dividends on South Sea Stock not already charged.
It appears by the preceding Accompts that in 1704 the sum of 40,000l. was lent to the present Emperor of Germany as King of Spain of which care is to be taken in settling the Accompt with his Imperial Majesty.
There is due from the States General a moiety of the yearly allowance of 800l. for waggon money to the four English battalions on the Establishment of the 20,000 men as well as a moiety of the allowance made to the four battalions for forage from Xmas 1707 to Xmas 1712.
Of the sum of 2,721l. 12s. 9d. appearing to be undeducted at the foot of Charles Fox's accompt for 1704 for charges of transportation, there has been deducted and charged in the Accompt for 1706 the sum of 5l. 14s. 6d. from Lieut. Gen. Ingoldsby's Regiment, leaving 2 715l. 18s. 1d.
There is also undeducted of the charges given in by the Commissioners of Transportation for the year 1706 the sum of 72l. 3s. 8d. and for 1707 that of 22l. 3s. 3d.; care is to be taken that the Regiments be charged with all such sums on their clearing.
Such sums as have been received by Benjamin Sweet, late Deputy Paymaster at Amsterdam, by the deduction of 1 per cent. upon payments made by him to the bread-contractors are declared to be chargeable upon Mr. Sweet, by Resolution of the House of Commons (see Vol. XXVI, p. xxii).
There is allowed the sum of 5,675l. 10s. 7¼d. paid to the use of the King of Denmark in part of the arrear of his subsidy as likewise the sum of 1,000l. paid the King of Prussia in part of his subsidy. Care must be taken that these be deducted when their full demands come to be stated.
There is also allowed 27l. 2s. 7½d. paid to Maj.-Gen. Evans on accompt and in part of forage due to him for 100 days to 1 April 1713. Care is to be taken that the same be deducted upon any demand of the whole 78l. 2s. 9½d. due for that time.
There is charged on the Accomptant in this Accompt the sum of 174,620l. in part of 248,500l. transferred to him within the time of this Accompt in annuities of 5l. per cent. per an. by the Earl of Lincoln; the remaining part is to be charged on his Lordship in his succeeding Accompt for this service, amounting to 73,880l.

The money paid by the Accomptant to the British Regiments serving in Spain and Portugal for subsistence and pay and allowed in preceding accompts for 1707 to 1711 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. allowed in 1710 for Additional levy money is to be charged to the respective Regiments and set against their claim for levy money.
Several other sums appear to be likewise chargeable, viz.:

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.

The Colonels or their Agents are to render an account of the horses actually bought by them; 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 in Spain, care is to be taken that the said Vincent be charged therewith.
The Accomptant has also paid for corn, viz.: to James Allen, late Commissary, for wheat bought in 1707, 5,130l. 10s. 10½d., whereof only 4,817l. 17s. 5d. is stopped from the Forces and accompted for; to Vincent Chabanes, another Commissary, in 1708 and 1709, 12,030l. 19s. 2d., whereof no more than 11,784l. 13s. 2¾d. has been stopped; and to Charles Medlicott, Commissary of Provisions in Portugal, in 1707 1,939l. 3s. 8d. for barley and straw, for which no deduction has been made.
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 26,605l. 16s. 7d. remains to be deducted.
Sums paid during the preceding Accompts to Antonio Belvitches and Joseph Larissa, contractors for furnishing mules for the Army in Spain, as also the sum of 109,321l. 13s. 9¾d. paid in 1710, 33,250l. in 1711 and 14,250l. in 1712 are to be deducted on clearing their demands for that service, as also is 5,018l. 9s. 0d. 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 and allowed in the Accompt for 1707, a memorandum to the Accompt for 1709 shows that only 7,660l. 18s. 2d. has been answered by him.
By the same Accompt it appears that the sum of 8,750l. has been paid to Brig. Lislemaris 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.
Whereas in this Accompt and preceding Accompts for 1707 to 1711 several sums have been paid by the Accomptant on warrants of the Commander in Chief for Contingencies and Extraordinaries of the War, the persons who received the said money are accomptable, unless it be shown that the Commanders in Chief were empowered to dispose thereof without Accompt.
Further 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.
Further Memorandum.—The Accomptant has not surcharged himself in this or the preceding Accompts with the deduction of 2½per cent. from the pay, subsidies or other allowances for the Foreign Forces; he affirms that no such deduction was made in former years nor could be made in 1712; which is here noted to the end that if such deduction has been or ought to have been made by the Deputy Paymaster, the same may be charged upon the persons who received the same, or may be deducted out of the claims and demands for arrears of pay or subsidies upon the Accompt of the Foreign Forces.
It appears by a writing under the hand of Monsieur Pareids, the Imperial Commissary General, dated 30 Dec. 1712, delivered by the Accomptant to the Auditor, that his Imperial Majesty is to be charged for tents, habiliaments, bread and other provisions, delivered to his Officers to the value of 185,420 pieces of eight, 14 sous, 4 denar’.
Further Memorandum.—Brig. Lewis Petit has received several sums in 1708 and 1709 for the Garrison of Port Mahon, wherewith he has charged himself.
There being allowed in this Accompt the sum of 10,737l. 5s. for the pay and extraordinaries of the Palatines as also of 333l. 6s. 8d. to the King of Sicily and 5,500l. to the King of Portugal, on accompt of their subsidies, care is to be taken the same be deducted when their full demand comes to be cleared, as also 100l. allowed Dr. Lacaan in this Accompt for salary as Director of the Hospital in Spain.
Further Memorandum.—In this Accompt there has been allowed the sum of 91,409l. 4s. 4d., paid to Thomas Moore by the late Paymaster of the Forces; of which no more than 86,661l. 3s. 2½d. is shown as repaid; care is to be taken that he be surcharged with the remainder of 4,748l. 1s. 1½d.
The sum of 29l. allowed in this Accompt as paid by the Receiver of the Land Tax for recruits for Sir John Whitrong's Regiment is to be repaid by the Treasury of Ireland, the said Regiment being on that Establishment.
Further Memorandum.—This Accomptant may still be chargeable with South Sea Stock or Dividends, which, when it appears, must be surcharged on him in a subsequent Account.
Auditor Foley has appended his signature.
