To the Right Honourable the Lords Commissioners of His Majestys Treasury

May it Please Your Lordships.

In obedience to Your Lordships Order of Reference of 5th: May last We have Considered the Petition of the Widow of Iohn Roos Esqr: late Engraver of His Majestys Seals setting forth that his Bill for the silver & Engraving work of Publick Seals amounting to 788: 15: 0812 was paid off by order of the Commissioners of his Majestys Treasury dated 7th August 1717 excepting two Seals for Ireland valued at 236: 18: 1012 upon a supposition that those two were to be paid for out of the Treasury of that kingdom And we are humbly of opinion that the said Graver be paid out of the Exchequer here for the Seals in question For they were Ordered & made here, & have formerly been paid for here as Appears to us by an Order of the Treasury dated the 6th Septr. 1711. and some Seals made since for Ireland have already been Paid for here: And Gravers may hereafter prove Vnwilling to make Seals here for Ireland if they must be sent thither for their money.

All which is most humbly submitted to Your Lordships great Wisdom
