The master told him he should take the whole for he must either sell it or run it for that he should want money for several necessaries; whereupon the petitioner carried the goods to the Custom House to be weighed and told the collector what the master had said: upon which the collector put 2 officers on board and said he would admit petitioner to a post entry if the Customs Commissioners agreed and in a few days told him he had a grant for a further entry of 70 pound weight or more and in taking of it by weight the entry was overdone, for which the collector admitted him to a post entry. Petitioner paid the whole Duty and had the collector's certificate to Portsmouth and from the officers of Portsmouth to London: yet the officers have seized the goods and exhibited an information against petitioner in the Exchequer: therefore praying a non pros “and is willing to give the officers reasonable satisfaction.” Reference Book VIII, p. 250.

Followed by: (1) report by Auditor Edward Harley dated 1705–6 Feb. 4 on the said account. In 1690 the accountants contracted with the late Lieut. Gen. Talmash and Col. Charles Godfrey for clothing the army in Ireland and they accordingly provided clothing for the abovesaid Regiments answerable to the contract. The payments for the clothing were directed to be stopped out of the pay and offreckonings of the Forces in Ireland. I wrote to Mr. Pauncefort, agent to the Paymasters of the Forces in Ireland, for an account of the said deductions and received the certificate below of said deductions (except the 4 Scotch Regiments, the 3 French Regiments, the late Sir Thomas Gore's Regiment and Capt. Richards' Independent Company) but it does not appear by the said certificate that regular deductions have been made for the clothing of this year 1690.
Mr. Pauncefort certifies that the 4 Scotch Regiments were on the Establishment of Ireland dated 5 June 1690 but never went into Ireland nor came under the care of the Paymasters of the Irish Forces.
It nowhere appears by any accounts of the English Paymasters that deductions have been made for the clothing issued to the said 4 Scotch Regiments amounting to 6943l. 6s. 0d. The 3 French Regiments are certified not to have been regimentally cleared either by the Army Debts Commissioners or by the Paymasters [of the Forces in Ireland] from 1 Sept. 1689 to 31 Dec. 1691 so that the sum of 2379l. 9s. 9d. charged on each [of the said 3] Regiment does nowhere appear to have been deducted but only made a charge upon them in the states first made up and delivered to each Regiment by the [said] Paymasters.
The clothing of the late Sir Thomas Gore's Regiment (being 1735l. 16s. 6d.) and of Capt. Richards' Independent Company (being 133l. 10s. 6d.) does not appear to be deducted either by the English or Irish Paymaster.
(2) A certificate dated 30 Mar. 1704–5 by E. Pauncefort of the sums charged on the following Regiments for clothing &c. delivered to them in Ireland and deducted out of their pay when their accounts were stated for the time they continued on the Irish Establishment.
