cation, therefore require of you tht proper measures are taken to
rectifie them, & that as soon as possible a good Account be Trans-

drop in by Lives or otherwise, that you will consider & examine the
Improvements that are made upon the Premises, & lett me have a
just Valuation, & not altogether go by the Old Standard, thinking it
equitable I shou'd reap some benefits from the Improvements that
are made.

5. Whereas great Abuses have been & are committed by my
Officers in Measurement of Tonnage of Ships, & as I shall from
the Custom-house here, take care to know how all Ships are rated
trading to our Parts, so I must will & require you to see tht so gross
an Abuse be rectified.

Brother the Governor, Philemon Loyd our Deputy Secretary &
Ricd Bennett Esqre the Finishing my Rent Rolls, which when Set-
tled, you must Transmit to me; your strict complyance in Forward-
ing this, as 'tis of the greatest consequence, so will it most oblige.
