Aug. 13. Royal warrant, under the Queen's sign manual, to the Clerk of the Signet for a privy seal to authorise the destruction of tobacco stalks as follows. The Customs Commissioners have represented to the Treasury that great art and industry hath of late been used to bring in tobacco stalks from Holland and other places ; which by a new invention of rolling and pressing do supply the use of tobacco to the great prejudice of the revenue ; and they have taken as great care to prevent the importation thereof and have under seizure at this time several vessels [laden] with tobacco stalks, which they intend to prosecute at law : but if after condemnation they should suffer the officers respectively concerned to sell and dispose thereof the said stalks will be cut up with tobacco and thereby supply the consumption of so much tobacco which would otherwise pay the duties of 5d. per lb. : wherefore they think it for the King's service that the tobacco stalks now under seizure and such as shall be seized hereafter be destroyed, after being appraised at modern rates, "as hath been heretofore done in like cases," and that the officers in the Receipt may be directed to levy tallies gratis to discharge the [Crown's] moiety of all such condemned stalks, and the charge of the prosecution be borne by the Crown, and the officers encouraged with some [such] suitable recompense for their respective interests as the said Customs Commissioners shall think fit.
