Mr. Sloper [is] called in. He acquaints my Lord that Mr. Brydges proposes to borrow 40,000l. upon tallies struck in his name on Malt Duties anno 1713 to complete 60,000l. directed the 17th June last for clearing up the services of her Majesty's Forces in the Low Countries to 24 June last. My Lord agrees that if the Bank will lend the said 40,000l. upon a deposit of tallies and orders struck in the name of the said Brydges on Malt anno 1713 the same shall be repaid to them within two months from the time of advancing it, together with 5 per cent. interest.
If Mr. Brydges shall have received more than 12,000l. in part of the 60,000l. directed for the uses abovementioned he is to give my Lord an account thereof [so] that so much of the 40,000l. which he is now to borrow may be applied to such other uses as my Lord shall appoint.

My Lord [on reading this memorial] directs that Mr. Brydges do deposit with the Bank so many of the tallies and orders for 55,000l. lately struck in his name on the Malt Duties anno 1713 as shall be sufficient to redeem the said tallies for 53,101l. 19s. 7½d. and [that thereupon he do] re-assign them to Mr. Micklethwayte on his [Micklethwayte's] transferring back to him, Brydges, the said 60,000l.
