Footnotes

1 The six persons here named as lenders of money were actually receiving payment and their names occur as payees in the discharge side of this quarter's account see infra, pp. 735 and 736. The wording of the entry shows that they took payment not in the form of cash but in the form of orders of loans, that is to say orders for repayment of loan money, the orders being in this case charged upon the Hereditary and Temporary Excise for repayment. The loans were therefore fictitious and the payments might alternatively have been made by tallies of pro on the Excise. But the loan orders were more acceptable as they carried interest at the rate which Parliament had authorised for loans on that particular fund. In addition to this, the loan orders, being registered in course, had a fixed reliable order of sequence for payment as and when the Excise funds came in and became available for distribution.
