Treasury warrant to the Navy Commissioners (to wit such of them who have the Transport service under their management) to make forth a perfect bill in the method of the Navy [Office] to be assigned on the Navy Treasurer for payment for 98l. to William Broking, merchant, for service as follows.
Prefixing: report by Tho.

John Moody, then (ut supra, Calendar of Treasury Books, Vol. XXXI, p. 714), Lieut. Gov. of that Garrison and Commander in Chief of his Majesty's Forces in Newfoundland, for the transport of 49 supernumerary soldiers with some of their wives from thence to England on board the ship Two Friends, Richard Sturzacker master. It appears that the Government ordered provisions only for 40 in each of the four Independent Companies there, so there was an absolute necessity of his sending home the supernumeraries to prevent the others from starving, as was determined in a consultation of Officers. They were 42 men and seven women. The bill of exchange was signed by Capt. Alexander Douglas, under whose command they came home, and was witnessed by Thomas Hodges, Judge Advocate [there], and Lieut. Gully, who came over in the said ship, but by reason of contrary winds and their provisions being entirely expended through a tedious passage they were landed at Weymouth instead of Portsmouth 28 Oct. 1715. (Letter of direction dated July 23 hereon.) Money Book XXVI, pp. 419–20. Disposition Book XXIV, p. 127.
