With reference to the mode in which my Salary may be paid to me, I have the honour to request that the Lords Comms of H.M. Treasury may be moved to cause the amount (Civil & Military inclusive) to be paid over periodically—say quarterly—to my agents Messr Cox & Co. This will be so very great a convenience to me that I hope it may meet with the approval of the Secretary of State and of the Lords Commissioners of H.M. Treasury.
I have the honor to be Sir
Yr most obedient humble Servant
R.C. Moody
