I have examined the within Account of His Majesty's Revenue of Quit rents from the 25th March 1772 to the 25th March 1773. The Charge whereof as appears from the Account is £996.0.6 Proclamation money equal to £569.3.2 sterling and the discharge to £416.19.0 Proclamation money equal to £238.5.2 sterling. But having submitted the Account produced by John Rutherford Esqr Receiver General, ending 25th March 1772 to the Examination and Determination of the Auditor General, the same having appeared to be improper and insufficient, I cannot pass the written Account until I am instructed about the former, especially as many of the objections which prompted me to reject the former Account continue in this

also, which with the vouchers I do likewise humbly submit to the Honble and Reverend Mr Cholmondeley for his determination thereon.

Is EDWARDS, Dep. Aud.

Sworn to before me at New Bern the 26th March 1773.
