moste place at such rates that [t]he Buiers professe openly they
will not pay and worke, and that [t]hey cannot live excepte
they may steale. And lastly many new and (as we thinke)
unwarranted allowance upon the seabookes. Namely the
double or rather treble payments of wage to new erected
leiutennants, viceadmiralls, and others, who receiving
first 20 s or 10 s per diem in the exchequer, receive againe the
same wages for themselves upon the shipps Charge, and
receiving 8. or .16. mens wages in the Exchequer for their [retinne]
likewise somany mens wages form the Treasurer of the Navye
and againe allowan[c]e for [the] victualls of somany men from the
[Surveiors] of victualls. Wee understand allso that of late
three principall officers of the Navy have each of them
allowance of the wages and victualls for a deadpaye in
every shipp at Sea, and that in Narrow seas there is an
allowance demanded for a preacher and his man, though
noe such devotion be ever used aboard, and wee finde 7
or 8 Admiralls, viceadmiralls, and Captens w[i]th
Extraordinary allowance in one yeare. /.

9 Cause./.

Wee ffind the chiefe and inward causes of all disorder to be the
multitude of officers, and povertie of wages, and that [t]he chiefe
officers Commit all the truste to their inferiors and Clerks, whereof
some homeparte of their maintenance from the Merchants, that
[deliver] in the provisions, w[hi]ch they are trusted to receive, and these
men are allso governed by the Cheife officers verball direccons
w[hi]ch the directors themselves will not give under their hands
when it is required; And w[hi]ch of all is moste inconveniente
they are the warrants and vouchies for the Issueinge of all his
Majesty’s moneyes, and stores, whoe are moste interrested in the the
greatnes of his Expence, And therefore the busines ever was
and still is soe carryed, that neither due survey is taken of
ought that cometh in, nor orderly warrant given for moste
that goeth oute, nor any perticuler accompte made, nor now
possible to be made of any one maine worke or service that is
Done. /.
