To the Right Honble: the Lords Commrs of His Majestys Treasury

Pursuant to your Lordships Order of Reference of May 5: 1701. We have Examined the Allegations of Mr. Edward Courtney's Peticon and find by the Books in the Mint Office that Mr Courtney was Paid as Muster master of the Workmen in the Exchequer several sums by Your Lordships Order after the rate of 10s a day, but it does not appear to us that he was Imployed by Mr. Neale as his Deputy in seeing the Money weighed at the Exchequer and delivered into the tower nor that he received any Money from Mr. Neale upon that or any other Acct.

All which is humbly submitted to Your Lordps: great Wisdom
