Proceedings and Observations. (1) This receiver's estates were extended ; he died in prison, and his sureties compounded by act of Parliament.

(2) This receiver's estates were extended ; he died in prison, and his sureties compounded by act of Parliament.

(3) This receiver died insolvent, and his fureties compounded by act of Parliament.

(4) The appeal which was many years ago depending before the Houle of Lords, touching the debt due from Mr. Charles Mason to Sir Biby Lake and Mr. Newell, who was security for this receiver, was deterinined in favour of the crown; but the mortgage to the late Sir Biby Lake being prior to the crown's debt, the mortgage money was to be first paid; the estate has been fince sold, and has not been sufficient to satisfy the mortgage, and therefore we apprehend there is nothing left for the payment of the crown debt.

(5) This receiver died insolvent; his sureties 'were prosecuted, but nothing recovered.

(7) Mr. Smart the receiver being long since dead, the suit which was then depending, touching his estate and effects, abated thereby, and letters of adminiftration were granted for the use of the crown ; and his only son and heir, which was then in India, dying soon after, a bill of revivor was filed, for reviving that suit; there was a receiver appointed by the court of Exchequer upon the estate, which was very finall, ill-tenanted, and part of it had been often in hand, so that little was produced from it; and his fecurities have been many years dead insolvent.

(8) The estates and effects of this receiver were vested in trustees for the use of the crown, and great suins have been paid into the Exchequer ; and there is a small estate remaining, upon which there is a receiver appointed, who pays the profits annually in satisfaction of ele crown debt.

(9) The receiver left an estate in Ireland, for the sale of which it was thought necessary to obtain a decree in the court of Exchequer there, and a suit was commenced for that purpose ; but by reason of the many prior incumbrances, it was found impracticable to recover any part of the debt.

(10) Extents have been issued, and several sums raised; but nothing more is expected.

(11) Greatest part of the estates of these receivers have been sold, and the purchale money paid into the Exchequer, and nothing farther expected to be received.

Proceedings and Obfervations. (12) There was a prior extent sued out by the commiffioners of cuftoms, who took possession of the 'receiver's estates, which were insufficient to satisfy the debt due to the customs.

(13) The estates and effects of this receiver were assigned to a trustee, and sold, for raising money for fatisfa&tion of the crown debt; several sums of money have been paid into the Exchequer in consequence of such sale, but nothing more can be received.

(14) Upon this receiver's failing, extents were issued against him, upon which his person was secured, and all his estate and effects, which could be discoverd, seized, several suns have been raised thereour, and paid into the Exchequer, and his fureties have fince compounded by act of Parliament.

(15) Process went against this receiver into Wales, which never could be got executed.

(16) Upon this receiver's failing, a writ of Diem clausit extremum ifrued against Edward Hooker, one of his sureties, and afterwards extents against himself; wereupon he and his other security, Francis Sheppard, conveyed their eftates to William Yeldham, Esq. a trustce for the crown; and all the receiver's estates have been fold, from whence, and also from the effects of the said Hooker, many thousand pounds have been paid into the Exchequer; but nothing more can be received.

(17) This receiver has been dead many years, and his securities have obtained an act of Parliament for compounding the debt due to the crown; and a case is now before his Majesty's attorney general, for his opinion how to proceed in the most effectual and speedy manner, for recovering the money.

Proceedings and Observations. (18) This receiver's estates are agreed to be made over to trustees, to receive the rents and profits thereof in satisfaction of the crown debt, or to sell the same, if it should be found necessary. It is to be observed, that if these accounts were passed, there would be a deduction of upwards of 6,000 l. paid to the militia.

(19) Several furns of money have been paid on this receiver's accounts : a decree of the court of Chancery was obtained for the sale of his estates, under which they have been actually fold ; the money is ordered to be paid by the purchaser into the bank, with the privity of the accomptant general, and the crown is directed to be paid out of it,

(20) This receiver's estate was extended, and the court of Exchequer has appointed a receiver, who passes his accounts annually, and pays the balance into the Exchequer in diminution of this debt. It is to be observed, that if these accounts were passed, there would be a deduction of goool, paid to the militia.

(21) This receiver died insolvent; but his sureties have, since his death, paid large sums of money, and, from the fufficiency of their property, we are confident the whole arrears will be paid by them. It is to be observed, that if these accounts were passed, there would be a deduction of 2,968 1. is. 6d. for militia payments, surveyorsfalaries, poundage and other articles.
