( 13.) No. 9. The Examination of JAMES TWIGG; taken on Oath, the 27th day of April 1810. Dm you hold any and what fituation lately in the General Poft Office ?— Twas, previous to » ny dismissal in 1809, Clerk of the North Road, having been appointed to that fituation 011 the death of Mr. Boswell the former Clerk ; before I obtained that appointment, I was Clerk of the Express Papers. How long had you been in the fervice of the Post Office previous to your difmiflal in i8oq ? — I entered the service of the Post Office in 1766, but owing to ill health I had ceafed giving regular attendance therein some time before my appointment to the North Road, and was afterwards permitted to retire without being regularly superannuated. Do you recollect the application made by the Clerk of the Roads in 1802 for compenfation, onaccount of the diminished circulation of Irish Newspapers, in confequence, as it was then alledged, of the Union?— I do; I joined with the other Clerks of the Roads in a Memorial to the Poftmafters General claiming such compensation. Did you at that time make any and what Returns of your annual income or profits arifing from the circulation of Papers on the North Road?— 1 made two Returns, one at the time the Memorial of the Clerks was first presented to the Poftmafters General, containing the amount of the profits of my Road for the two years ending 5th January 1802; the feeond fome time after, containing a Statement of the profits of the Road on an average thereof in the three years ending 5th January 1801, as far as 1 was able to ascertain the fame. Can you ftate particularly in what manner the latter Return was made up?— I kept 110 memorandum of it, and cannot state the particulars from memory ; but i eftimated the profits of the Road according to the Best information I could procure, of the quantity of Papers circu- lated by my predeceflor, and from the produce of the Road while I held it myfelf. Did you propofe by that Statement to return the grofs or the net profits of the Road ?— The net profits, or the actual income the Road might be computed to produce. Were you exact in framing this Return according to that principle ?— I made it as corre& ly asd could, and fo as I could have verified it upon oath, having been informed I might be called upon for that purpofe.
