Feb. 28.William Lowndes [to the Navy Treasurer] relative to the above. At the request of the merchants and dealers on the Course of the Navy my Lords have consented and agreed that sundry tallies and orders in your hands amounting to 303,790l. 4s. 2d. in principal money and also the sum of 24,469l. 10s. 7d. incurred as interest thereupon to date hereof shall be applied to pay the Course of the Navy and Victualling. I am directed to send you a copy of the above letter sent to the Navy Commissioners relating to the manner and method in which the said tallies and orders and interest are to be assigned to the respective Courses. The Treasury Lords order that although the Navy Commissioners and Victualling Commissioners shall, in pursuance of the said letter, assign payment of their bills in Course out of the said tallies and orders and interest, yet you are to take care that none of the said tallies and orders be delivered out in satisfaction of such assignments until you shall receive my Lords' further directions in that behalf, "the said merchants and dealers having submitted to their Lordships' pleasure therein."
And whereas the sum of 9,083l. 12s. 6d. remains in your hands in tallies and orders on the tenth 4s. Aid for the year 1707, which have been for a long time past set apart for the Course of the Navy but ordered not to be assigned or applied thereunto until they could be disposed at par, my Lords (since the said tallies are now transferred to the Land Tax anno 1711) are pleased to direct you to apply the same to the Course of the Navy accordingly, making interest to commence from the 28th inst. upon those of them which were drawn without interest: and my Lords will give warrants to the Exchequer for paying the said interest accordingly, the interest on the bills in Course being to cease from that time.
