May 13. Royal warrant dated St. James's to the Attorney and Solicitor General to prepare a Bill containing an indenture whereof one part is to pass the great seal of Great Britain and the other part is to pass the common seal of the South Sea Company for an assignment to the said Company by the Crown of the Asiento, viz. as follows: A Treaty or Contract commonly known by the name of the Asiento was adjusted between her Majesty and the King of Spain bearing date at Madrid 26 March 1713 whereby her Majesty undertook for her nominees that they should oblige and charge themselves with the bringing into the Spanish West Indies in America in the space of 30 years 144,000 such negroes as are therein described at the rate of 4,800 per an., and that the Asientists shall pay to the King of Spain 33⅓ pieces of Eight (Escudos) comprehending therein all manner of Duties for every one of the said negroes; and that such Asientists should advance to the said King 200,000 pieces of Eight in such pro portion and to be reimbursed in such manner as therein prescribed: and it is thereby stipulated that if the Asientists after they shall have imported the said 4,800 negroes yearly find it necessary for the service of the said King and his subjects to import a greater number they shall have liberty so to do during the first 25 years of the said contract with condition that they shall pay no more than 162/3 pieces of Eight for all Duties on each excess negro (Pieza de India): and by the said Contract liberty is allowed to the said Asientists to sell the said negroes and to bring back the produce.
And by the 12th Article of the said Contract his said Majesty is pleased to grant that as soon as the peace shall be proclaimed her Majesty might send two ships of war with factors, officers and others to settle and regulate factories and to provide all things necessary for receiving the vessels that shall go with the negroes; and that for transporting the factors and others belonging to the said Company to Buenos Ayres a vessel of middle burthen should be allowed.
And by the 28th Article of the said Contract it is stipulated that both of their Majesties shall be concerned for one half of the said trade, each of them a quarter part. And it being necessary that his Catholic Majesty (in order to have and enjoy the benefit and gain that may be obtained by this trade) should advance to the said Asientists one million pieces of Eight (Escudos) or a quarter of the sum which they should judge necessary for the putting of this commerce into a good order and method, it is thereby agreed and settled that if his Catholic Majesty shall not think it convenient to advance the said sum the aforesaid Asientists should offer to do it out of their own money and be reimbursed with such interest and by such ways and means as by the said Contract are prescribed.
And by Articles 29 and 30 and 32 accounts are to be rendered every five years and the Asientists are granted the space of three years in which to adjust their accounts.
And by Article 34 in order that the Asientists may (for the support and maintenance of the negroes set on shore in the ports in the West Indies and for all employees) keep magazines of clothing, medicine, provisions and naval stores for furnishing the ships employed in its service, “it was trusted that his Catholic Majesty would allow the Asientists from time to time to bring from Europe or her Britannic Majesty's Colonies in North America directly to the ports and coasts of the Northern Sea of the Spanish West Indies, where there shall be royal officers or their deputies, and likewise to the river of Plata or Buenos Ayres “[such stores of] clothing, medicines, provisions and naval stores for the use only of the Asientists, their negroes, factors &c., and that they may import the same in small vessels of about 150 tons (and not in those wherein the negroes are imported), of which and of their cargoes they are to send an account to the Council of the Indies.
And by the 36th Article leave is granted to the said Asientists to send a ship of 300 tons to the Canary Islands and to carry thence such fruit as is customarily taken on board there for America for one time only during the continuance of the said Asiento.
And by the 37th Article orders were to be despatched for the publication in all parts of [Spanish] America of an Indulto for the negroes unduly imported from the day the said Asiento takes place with free liberty to the factors to lay an Indulto on them at what time and price they shall think fit and that the product of the said Indulto shall be applied to the benefit of the Asientists who should be obliged to pay to his Catholic Majesty the regular Duties of 33⅓ pieces of Eight for each negro.
And the Spanish King by a royal decree of 12 March 1712 has allowed to the Company of this Asiento a ship of 500 tons yearly to trade therewith to the Indies (in which he is to partake a fourth part of the gain as in the Asiento and to receive 5 per cent. of the net gain of the other three parts which belong to England) on condition not to sell the lading of said ships save only at the time of the fair.
And the Spanish King by two several licences or instruments dated Madrid 17 Jan. 1713, countersigned by Don. Joseph Grimaldi, his Secretary of State and Universal Despatch, consented to permit that a voyage might be made to the [Spanish] Indies in the North Seas in two several ships of the burthen of 500 or 600 tons each and their ladings disposed of free of Duty.
And further the Spanish King by instruments dated at Madrid 15 June 1713, similarly countersigned, taking notice that the commerce to the said Indies is absolutely prohibited to all nations and left free and open only to the Spaniards by the treaty between England and Spain, but being notwithstanding resolved that the favour intended by the aforesaid licences or permissions of two ships of 500 or 600 tons each should be effectual and enjoyed, his Majesty hath granted licence and passport for the same to navigate to the Indies and sell their lading free of Duty, but with the express condition of paying to the Spanish King 10 per cent. of the profits or gain made by said lading, the accounts thereof to be adjusted at the return of each ship: the passports to serve only for one voyage.
And the Spanish King has consented that the said Contract and Additional Article may take effect from the 1st May 1714, new style, and that the term of 30 years shall commence from that date upon the same conditions and advantages as in the said Contract and Additional Article were expressed in relation to the said term which was [therein] to commence on the 1st May 1713.
“And it is expected that his Catholic Majesty will consent that the said 200,000 pieces of Eight which by the 3rd article of the said contract were to be advanced to his Majesty at Madrid may be retained and employed by the Asientists as part of his Majesty's proportion of the sum which they should judge necessary for putting the said commerce into a good order and method according to the said 28th article.
Now this indenture witnesseth that the Queen, out of her desire to promote the wealth and prosperity of her subjects and being well satisfied that a vigorous carrying on of the trade intended as above will greatly conduce thereto by employing many ships and vessels and vending great quantities of commodities and more especially by bringing home into Great Britain (after a long and expensive war) great quantities of money, gold, silver and other riches, &c., doth hereby name and appoint the South Sea Company to be the Asiento Company to perform all the above powers, matters and things: and in consideration of the sum of 20s. paid into the Exchequer doth grant, assign and transfer to the said Company all that quarter share belonging to her by the abovesaid 28th Article and all other benefits, &c., from any of the above articles: the said Company yielding yearly at the Receipt of the Exchequer one ounce Troy of gold of the fineness of 22 carats or 4l. sterling by tale in lieu thereof.
The Queen, being minded to encourage the lawful trade in accordance with the said Contract, &c., doth hereby command that none of her subjects do presume to interfere with the said trade of the said South Sea Company by unlawful importation of negroes or merchandizes into the Spanish West Indies or by pretending to bear the proper colours or passes belonging to the said Company.
Further hereby 7½ per cent. of the profits of the whole trade out and home of the said ship of 500 tons allowed to trade yearly and on the negroes and on the “confiscated” negroes and on the tolerated trade of ships of 150 tons and the ship of 300 tons and by prizes (excepting always the two ships of 5–600 tons) is to be assigned by the South Sea Company to Manuel Menasses Gilligan of London.
Further hereby 22½ per cent. gain similarly as above is to be assigned by the South Sea Company to William Lowndes and John Taylour to their own use.
Followed by (1) a schedule containing the draft assignment by the South Sea Company to Manuel Manasses Gilligan on condition and in consideration of his advancing 35,500l. as the Company's proportion of 355,000l. of estimated capital outlay (if the Spanish King leaves in their hands the 200,000l. pieces of Eight) or 40,000l. on the Company's proportion of 400,000l. (if the Spanish King does not so leave in their hands the said pieces of Eight) (towards which it is acknowledged that he has already paid 7,100l.).
(2) a second schedule containing the indenture of assignment by said Company to said Lowndes and Taylour in consideration and on condition of their contributing 106,500l. on the 355,000l. proportion or 120,000l. on the 400,000l. proportion as above (towards which it is hereby acknowledged that they have contributed and paid 21,300l.).

Prefixing: report dated 1713–14 Jan. 20 by said Postmasters General.

Appending: (a) previous report dated 1713 April 15 by same. In pursuance of Mr. Lowndes's letter of 15 Sept. 1712 we directed Mr. Manley and Mr. Maine, our chief [Post Office] Deputies of Ireland and North Britain, to meet at Donaghadee in order to agree for the hire of proper vessels and to consult as to the regulations and instructions for that correspondence. They propose five boats, as two will be insufficient. The expense of hiring the boats will not exceed 50l. but there will be salaries to the agent at each port and an additional charge occasioned by settling the post to go a second time every week between Ayr and Port Patrick which is 40 long miles, [in order] that a communication may be thereby maintained twice a week between Edinburgh and Port Patrick, the same having hitherto been no oftener than once a week.

(c) Heads of Instructions to masters and seamen of the pacquet boats: (to give bond never to make any private collection or conveyance of letters and to submit their cabins and chests to be searched by the [Post Office] Deputy at either port: to carry no prohibited goods nor assist nor consent to the running or defrauding of Duties).

May 20. Warrant by Treasurer Oxford to Sir Edward Northey, Attorney General, to pursue all the requisites for obtaining an Act of Parliament about Proprietary Governments as follows:
Prefixing: Order of the Queen in Council dated St. James's 21 April 1714. There was this day read the report of March 20 from the Committee of the whole Council in reply to her Majesty's order of Feb. 20 last referring to the Council a representation from the Lords of Trade and Plantations relating to several Acts passed in Pennsylvania and to powers which were granted by Charles II in the Charter to William Penn, Proprietary of that Province, for the making and enacting of laws there, and particularly to a clause therein which allows five years time within which to lay such laws before her Majesty and no more than six months’ time for her Majesty to declare her royal pleasure thereupon; whereby it may happen that so great a number of laws may be transmitted at one time as to render it difficult if not impossible (considering what other business may intervene) to examine the same as they ought to be; and also representing a further ill consequence of the same clause, viz., that temporary laws prejudical to the trade of her Majesty's other subjects may be enacted there so as to expire before the Proprietary may [actually] lay the same before her Majesty; by which means her Majesty's perogative of repealing such laws as may be thought unfit to be confirmed is evaded.
Their Lordships, in pursuance of her Majesty's order [of reference] aforesaid, having this day taken the same into consideration and finding further by a minute at the Treasury Chambers that an agreement there hath been made with Mr. Penn and other Proprietaries of Pennsylvania for surrendering to the Crown their propriety thereof for 12,000l., do offer their opinion to her Majesty that the said agreement be perfected by Act of Parliament by reason of the incapacity of the said Mr. Penn, wherein also provision may be made for the inconveniences complained of.
Her Majesty is hereby pleased to approve of the abovesaid report and orders the Lord Treasurer to proceed in perfecting the said agreement in order to have the same passed into an Act of Parliament as soon as may be. “And it is further ordered by her Majesty in Council that it be referred back to the said Committee of the whole Council to examine and enquire into the powers and authorities by which the rest of her Majesty's Plantations in America do pretend to the making and enacting laws to continue in force for so short a time whereby her Majesty's prerogative of approving such laws is evaded; and to consider of such methods as their Lordships shall judge proper for setting aside the said practices so prejudical to her Majesty's interest and the trade of her subjects; and to present the same to this Board “.
