By agreement with the late Lord Treasurer [Godolphin] dated 13 Feb. 1704–5 and by several subsequent agreements Sir Henry Furnesse was appointed to remit money for the Queen's Forces in the Low Countries and Germany, for which he is accomptable. He did in his lifetime exhibit his accompts of the said remittances for the time he was concerned in that affair, viz. from May 1705 to Aug. 1710, which are under examination in order to the preparing a state thereof.
