To the Right Honourable the Lord High Treasurer of England

May it Please Your Lordship

In Obedience to Your Lordships Reference to Vs of the 12th. Instant upon the petition of Wm: Bond Wee do humbly acquaint your Lordship that Wee have Examined his Case and find as well by the annexed Certificate as by a Letter from Mr. George Smythe to Mr. Newton when he was Warden of the Mint, that the petitioner has formerly been Active and at Considerable Charges in discovering and prosecuting Coiners & Clippers in the County of Gloucester as he has sett forth in his petition but it does not appear to us that He has had any Reqard for his said Services.

As to the Summ of Money alledged in the petition to have been paid to Mr. George Smithe out of the Treasury as a Reward and Gratuity for the said Services Wee most humbly Refer to the Books of the Treasury upon which it was paid.

All which is most humbly submitted to your Lordships great Wisdom

I Stanley
