II [c. 35] for erecting a Post Office certain rates and payments for postage are settled, which rates etc. by other later Acts are lawfully payable to the Crown. Further, by several Acts of Parliament orders in the Exchequer are assignable without revocation. And the King is resolved to borrow of his subjects or others any sums not exceeding 300,000l. in the whole "to be employed for the support of our urgent and extraordinary affairs." For the encouragement of lenders thereto the King hereby declares that a moiety of the said [Hereditary] Excise and [three fourths] of the profits of the said General Letter Office, or Post Office, or Office of Postmaster General, shall be appropriated to the satisfaction of such loans "together with such other sums as we may direct to be satisfied out of the said revenues in course, as the orders for the said loans, or the said other sums shall stand in the register for the same, hereby directed to be kept and with such interest as is hereafter mentioned." It is therefore hereby directed that the Excise Commissioners shall at their head Office in London from Sept. 29 next keep separate a moiety of the receipts of said [Hereditary] Excise, and keep a separate account thereof to which all persons concerned shall have free access at all reasonable times : and the said moiety receipts shall be paid into the Exchequer weekly every Wednesday, distinct and apart from all other moneys whatsoever. And similarly the Postmaster General shall from same date keep distinct and separate the three fourth parts of the receipts of said Office, and keep a distinct account thereof and pay it into the Exchequer weekly as above. And no tallies of assignment, tallies of anticipations, warrants or any other thing shall at any time be levied or made to hinder or divert such actual payment. And the Auditor of the Receipt shall keep a fair and perfect book in his Office of these [two branches of] revenues, to which book the lenders or their assigns shall have free access. And thereon any persons, as well natives as foreigners, may lend up to a total of 300,000l. as above and have thereon tallies of loan and orders of repayment, with 6 per cent payable quarterly. And the Auditor of the Receipt shall keep a register for said orders of repayment and for all orders "for any other payments to be made by our direction," all said orders to be entered therein according to their respective dates and not otherwise and without giving undue preference of one before another : and thereto all persons concerned shall have free access. And the said parts of the said revenues are hereby set apart and appropriated to the satisfaction of said orders so registered and to no other use until the same be fully paid off and discharged in their due course according to said register. Any official who in any way contravenes the order or sequence of said register is to forfeit his place and to make good the damage of the party aggrieved.
