Report to the Treasury Lords from William Blathwayt on the petition of Mr. Graham. I have examined these papers and find that in 1686 Mr. Lucas Santen, being collector and receiver of the revenue in New York, was suspended by the Governor and Council from the execution of his office for neglect of duty and disobedience of the Governor's order. Thereupon petitioner, with Stephanus van Courtlandt, by the appointment of Col. Dungan, Governor of that Province, did collect and receive said revenue until 1688, Mar. 25. Graham petitioned the Lords of Trade and Plantations for 100l. salary for the said service, and same was referred to Col. Slaughter, Governor of New York. He reported thereon that, having inspected the several orders and accounts of the Collector's Office in New York, he finds that the said revenue was improved in the year 1687 during petitioner's management and that 120l. sterling is due to him for salary. It may be directed to be paid out of the revenue of New York, where said petitioner is at present employed in their Majesties' service. Out Letters (Plantations Auditor) I, pp. 376-7.
Same to same from same on Mr. Cortlandt's petition. I find that by an establishment, signed by James II in 1688, the Company of Foot then at New York was ordered to be formed into two Companies to be paid from 1688, Aug. 1, according to the said establishment out of the revenue arising in New England (of which the Province of New York was then a part). In 1690, the said Companies having been broken and dispersed by the late disorders in New York, the officers presented a petition to the Committee of Trade and Plantations on behalf of themselves and others who had supplied the said Companies with subsistence and other necessaries, complaining that they [said officers and soldiers] had not received any pay. The said petition was referred to Col. Sloughter, Governor of New York, who has reported that by Mr. Cortlandt's account it appears that 2,051l. 14s. 6d. was due to the said two Companies at New York from 1688, Aug. 1, to 1689, June 18, when one of the said Companies was dispersed by the disorders there ; and to the other Company (which being at Albany continued in the service from the said 18th of June to 1689-90, Mar. 22) 457l. 1s. 0d., making together 2,508l. 15s. 0d. arrears due : of which sum Mr. Stephanus van Courtlandt has paid to them 1,405l. 5s. 9½d. for their subsistence and other necessary supplies of the two Companies in their several expeditions against the French and Indians for the security and defence of the country : so that there yet remains due to the officers and soldiers 1,103l. 9s. 8½d. Col. Sloughter also represents that Mr. Cortlandt has further disbursed 651l. 14s. 5¾d. for the public service at New York by order of the Government, thus making a total of 2,057l. 0s. 2¼d. paid by him, of which he has received 700l. 6s. 3d. out of the Public Treasury at New York, thus leaving 1,356l. 13s. 11¼d. This sum, together with the 1,103l. 9s. 8½d. arrears of pay as above, is to be satisfied out of the public revenue arising in New York by the Treasury Lords' direction, after the necessary charges of the Government [of New York] are first provided for.
