Strongly recommending rises of between 10 and 20 p.a. (ie. 50) as their current salaries are not enough to live on, despite 'there being to our certain knowledge, great diligence & care requird of them, & no manner of proffitts or perquisites besides the bare salaries'.


[This recommendation, and similar ones of 1702, 1705 and 1718, were all overruled by the Treasury: see Craig, NATM, 114.]
