Same to George Granville, Secretary at War, to prepare a royal warrant for paying Col. Jones's Regiment in the West Indies as follows.

By the Queen's Regulation the Regiments in the West Indies shall be mustered every two months and the muster rolls and duplicates thereof signed as prescribed and transmitted home by the first shipping. They are to be paid and kept subsisted six months in advance. Jones's Regiment is cleared to 20 May 1709 and from that time only 2,000l. has been issued to it upon account; and in order to clear the Officers and effectives to Nov. 23 inst. 13,888l. 9s. 10d. is required, but the muster rolls are generally so imperfect that they will not be sufficient to vouch any part of the pay thereof before the Auditors, save by Treasury authorisation. The reasons for the imperfections of the muster rolls are that neither Col. Jones nor any of his Officers had any notice of the time and place of the musters frequently taken by the Governor, Col. Parke, although they were in the same island and the said Governor refused to muster any man not on the spot though known to be absent on detachment or on board her Majesty's ships of war attending that station &c. Other imperfections in the rolls (such as want of Officers' hands or dates endorsed on the outside only instead of being writ at the head of the document) seem to arise by the persons being unacquainted with the required forms. The pay due from 21 May 1709 to Dec. 22 following according to the muster rolls is computed at 7,230l. 5s. 6d. From Jan. 19 last no muster rolls are returned. The subsistence advancable according to the regulation is 5,468l. 12s. 8d., whereof 2,000l. is already paid in part and 2,000l. more on account has been ordered by the Treasury Lords. Ibid., pp. 179–80.
