A fpecimen- paper is kept in each Mill, and Examinant keeps a flock- book for the walk: in this ( lock- book he enters the names of the feveral Paper- makers, and the number and dimenfions of their Engines and Vats; the dimenfions are furniflbed to him by the Surveyor. When the I aper- maker intends to commence working, he gives notice to the Gauger of the time at which hepurpofes to commence, and of the clafs of Paper in making of which the Engine is to be employed; thefe notices are in many inftances nor. given by the Manufacturers until fome months after the taking out of their Licences, and till they are given no charge is made cgainft the Manufa& urer; the year is reckoned to. begin' from the 25th of March, but, in fome inftances, the Trader does not take out his^ Licence for a month or two after 25th of March.

He never brings to charge any other Paper than fuch as is produced to him tied up in wrappers, and it frequently happens that no Paper is produced to him in the courle of a month. Examinant, when applied to, grants Permits for the removal of all the Paper fent to Paner- ftainers. Within the laft fix, months, Examinant has made feveral vifits at night, in one of which he found at work an Engine which had been declared to be filent.

Previous to Chrittmas, Examinant may have taken fees, but fince he received the genual order from the Board, prohibiting their receipt, he has not taken any.
