Four of the eight are made out for specific individuals, and four for groups of persons, are each foolscap 8vo, with five of them 1p. long, and three of them 2pp. long. Each written on the first leaf of a bifolium, and each addressed on the reverse of the second leaf 'To the Honble: Charles Compton Esqr. Paymaster of His Majts: Pensions'. Seven of the receipts are signed (all from Treasury Chambers) by either 'J. West' (four, 26 June 1753; 6 July 1753, 11 October 1753 and 7 January 1754) or 'N Hardinge' (three, 16 August 1753, and 6 and 10 April 1754). Each of the eight is headed in a form similar to the following: 'The Lords Commrs: of His Majtys: Treasury having this day directed the Sum of Two Hundred and Fifty Pounds to be issued to You at the Receipt of the Exchequer upon the Unsatisfyed Order in Your Name as paymar of His Majestys Pensions Their Lordps: are pleased to direct You to pay over the same unto the Duke of Somerset for One Quarter due the 5th April 1753 on his pencon of lb1000 pr Ann I am | Sr | Your most humble Ser | J.
