(Circular, No. 83.)

Admiralty, 23d October, 1832.

The Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty having caused a revision to be made of the prices at which Slop Clothing is issued to the Crews of His Majesty's ships, and having in consequence determined that an alteration shall take place in the prices at which such Clothing shall be issue in future, you are immediately, on the receipt of this Order, which is to be noted in the Log Book, to cause a Survey to be held before any further issues are made, upon the articles of Slop Clothing remaining in charge of the Purser, for the purpose of showing the quantity and value thereof, the Purser taking care to credit or charge himself in his Slop Account with the difference in value between the old and new prices ; and Slops are thenceforward to be issued at the prices fixed in the scale on the other side hereof.

A Copy of the Report of Survey of remaining Slops is to be sent to the Comptroller of the Victualling.

By Command of their Lordships, George Elliot.

To all Captains, Commanders, Commanding Officers and Pursers of His Majesty's Ships and Vessels.
