Tackle house porters.

II. 288. Letter from the Lord Mayor to the Lords of the Council, enclosing a Petition from the Porters of the Tackle Houses of the City, praying assistance for the prevention of the inconvenience like to grow upon them through the erection of a new office, to be established for the lading and unlading within the Port of all merchants' goods not free of the twelve Companies of the City. The City, by ancient custom and usage, had the appointment of these porters, and they had always appointed poor decayed Citizens, whose conduct had given satisfaction to the merchants, and employment to the industrious poor; the proposed arrangements would throw out of employment many deserving men, and give great dissatisfaction to the merchants. They besought their Lordships to intercede with His Majesty that this injustice might not be put upon them.
