Warrant by Treasurer Godolphin to the Customs Commissioners to put into operation the method they propose for management of the Wood [Duty] Office.
Prefixing: presentment from said Commissioners proposing said method. The Wood Office has continued under a separate management ever since the [termination of the] farm of the Duties on wood. It has long been in our thoughts to reduce it to the general practice of the Customs with regard to other trade. Mr. Andrews, the Receiver of that Office, has obtained a warrant to act as deputy to the Surveyor of London port, an office which will be inconsistent with his office of Receiver on whom such a surveyor is supposed to be a check. We therefore propose that ships for [from] Norway or elsewhere with timber should be boarded at Gravesend and that after the master's report we appoint waiters as in the case of other ships and that an entry be passed by the merchant before any sufferance allowed for her discharge; during which the proper surveyors are to go frequently aboard to inspect the waiter's admeasurement and adjust the post entry: and after that the books, as in the case of other ships, are to be carried to the Jerquer who is to examine the whole account. “And whereas the quaymen are now reduced within that number which we, on the first regulation of them, proposed should be continued as a nursery for the instruction of new officers in the practice of the Customs at the waterside” we propose that one of the quaymen be appointed with a timber waiter to take the account of those [timber] ships. This scheme does regulate the entries and discharge of timber ships conformable to others. Out Letters (Customs) XIV, p. 453.

We have received in five monthly payments the whole of the said sum and have paid 249,069l. 7s. 9d. to Sir Theodore Jansen with whom we have contracted [for him] to remit the money to his Highness Prince Eugene upon an allowance of one per cent, for his provision, risk and charges of brokage: and we have reserved 930l. 12s. 3d. in our hands for salaries and incidents. We have adjusted the exchange with said Jansen on the remittance of 1,041,671½ Ducats de Banque of Venice which cost in sterling 246,569l. 7s. 9d. and have allowed him 2500l. for charges etc. as above. We have perused the accounts of the said Jansen as also of Messrs. Williams and Company of Venice in proof of his transactions in this affair and consider the same to be very just and exact. The exchange works out at about 573/5 pence per Ducat (marginal note 1,041,671½ Ducats at 57¾ pence is in sterling 250,001l. 3s. 2d.).
