Dec. 11, which directed that officers wounded in a fight at sea to loss of an eye or limb should be allowed in ready money one year's wages and be continued in pay during the whole time they should appear by proof to have lain under cure ; and that the wages thereby intended are (for officers of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd rate ships) the same they enjoyed by virtue of their offices, and (for those of 4th, 5th and 6th rates) the wages and pay of the like officers of 3rd rates ; but with a proviso for deduction of so much of the costs of his cure as their Majesties may have borne : it appearing that the said Whinnet, late commander of the packet boat Frances ketch, coming in March last with the Holland mail from Helford Sluijs [Helvoetsluis] to Harwich, was set on by a French man of war of 36 guns mounted and 240 men, and finding he could not avoid them he put himself in the best posture of defence, though having but 15 guns and 50 men, and after five hours' dispute being overpowered, his right arm shot off and his vessel disabled, she was taken and carried into Dunkirk, where he continued five months, during which time his arm was under cure : wherefore he has prayed the bounty pursuant to his Majesty's intention, alleging that the pacquet boats are established according to the Rules of the 6th Rate men of war : whereupon the Treasury Lords recommended it to the Postmasters General to do according to the rule already settled [as to royal bounty and pension, see supra, pp. 1208-9] ; whereupon the said Postmasters have reported Dec. 15 last that they think Whinnet's petition refers not to the last named bounty regulation (which applies only to seamen and not to officers), but to the first named Order in Council, the Harwich pacquet boats being (as petitioner sets forth) upon the establishment as Sixth Rates, and that he may deserve same [i.e. 3rd Rate scale] as he behaved himself well in defending his vessel as long as possible and then throwing the mail overboard.

Royal warrant to Abraham Yarner, esq., Commissary General of the Musters in Ireland, to close and perfect the several musters rolls taken by him or his deputies of the said Forces according to the following instructions, viz. : By reason of their continual motion and distance of quarter upon a long frontier, the said Troops have not been so frequently mustered as is usual in times of peace, the reasons whereof the King is satisfied of during his stay in that kingdom and since. The King thinks it fit that an account be forthwith made of the arrears of pay due to the said Forces from their last clearings to Jan. 1 inst., but same cannot be done without ascertaining [fixing] the time when the respective musters shall commence and determine. Yarner is therefore hereby to observe the following instructions.
All men mentioned in the muster rolls as sick are to be certified by one or more of the Field Officers of the Regiment or the Captain of the Troop or Company and the Chirurgeon of the Regiment or the Chirurgeon General or Master of the Hospital.
All officers and soldiers mentioned as detached or upon parties, or absent for raising recruits or by leave are to be certified by the Colonel or Officer in Chief of the Regiment.
For horsemen mentioned as unmounted the Officer in Chief is to certify the number of days of their being so unmounted.
All muster rolls are to be signed by the Commissaries and the officers as usual and sworn to by the Commissaries.
As this service will not admit of delay, notice of the above instructions is to be given at once to Commanding Officers.
The muster taken in September, 1689, of the Regiments under the late Major General Kirke, Sir John Hanmer and Col. Stuart is to comprehend only five months ending at that time, not six months : and the muster then taken for the rest of the Army is to be for the said month of September only.
The muster rolls for the said three Regiments and for the rest of the Army taken in December, 1689, for the month of October preceding and for November and December, 1689, shall be closed for those months and for the four following months ending May, 1690.
The muster taken at Tondrage [Tonragee] in June, 1690, of several of the Forces then encamped there under Lieut. Gen. Douglas is to commence at the 1st of that month and end Oct. 31 following : and the muster taken in or about February, 1690-1, shall for the Forces so mustered at Tondragee commence the said 31 Oct., 1690, and end on 28 Feb., 1690-1, and the said muster is to govern the payment of the rest of the Forces from 1690, June 1, to 1690-1, Feb. 28.
The muster, taken at the times of their breaking, of the Regiment of Horse late under Col. Theodore Russell, of the three Troops of the Royal Regiment of Horse and of the Troop of Horse commanded by William Harbord : and also the muster of the Regiment of Foot late under Col. White shall take place from the said 28 Feb., 1690-1, to the times of their being so broke.
The muster of all the rest of the Forces taken in or about June, 1691, shall take place from the said 28 Feb., 1690-1, to the last day of October, 1691.
The muster taken in or about the month of November, 1691, shall commence from 1691, Oct. 31, and determine the 1 Jan., 1691-2.
And as considerable numbers of recruits have in the intervals of these general musters been received in the several Regiments, they are hereby to be allowed on the said musters from the respective times of their being first mustered to the time of the next muster following.
And as several of the Regiments lately in Ireland are now come to England, whereby several of the certificates required [as above] may not be had there, the said Yarner or his deputy is to repair to England to complete the whole, bringing with him all the rolls from September, 1689, so soon as he has finished all the rolls possible in Ireland.
