He is of opinion, that an Office fo ® granting Permits from ft ores, fuch as exifted a few years ago, would afford much greater convenience to the Trader.

In what manner were you direfted to attend the Commiffioners of Enquiry, when firft examined by them ? By an order of the Board of Excife, fent by a Meffenger, as I beft recolledt. Had you any communication with any, and what Officer, previous to your at- tendance purfuant to that order ? I had with Mr. Fitzimons, the Infpector General. Where did that converfation take place? At Mr. Fitzimons's Office in the Cuftom* houfe, where I attended him by appointment. Did you know the purpofe for which that meeting had been appointed ?— I did conceive that it was in confequence of my being ordered to attend the Commif- fioners. Why were you of that opinion ?— Becaufe I was not in the habit of meeting Mr. Fitzimons by appointment at the Cuftom- houfe fo early as the appointed hour, and becaufe that hour was previous to the hour I was required to attend at the Board; 1 think there were other circumftances by which that impreffion was made upon my mind, though I cannot fpeak positively as to them. By whom was the meffage of Mr. Fitzimons, communicated to ycu f— I do not exa& ly recoiled, but think it might have been by Mr. Starr, a Surveyor in the Dublin Diftria. What converfation paffed between Mr. Fitzimons and you at that meeting— I re- collect only the tenor of the converfation, which was, in fubftance, that he had been applied to by the Board of Excife, to name an Officer who was capable of giving an account of the duty to this Board, and that he had fele& ed me to go before the Com- miffioners of Enquiry for that purpofe; and added, that in my examination I need not give them too clofe a knowledge of the practices of Traders ahd Officers; that I need not tell them every thing. He then fpoke of the leading points to which he ^ ppofed I fhould be queftioned, and fuggefted the anfwers which he fuppofed I would make; which were framed to be confiftent with the correct execution of the duty ; and, amongft other things, mentioned, that they would probably afk me the amount^ of Ins fees, which, faid he, of courfe you do not know; but you may fay I get^ twenty * 7
