Foolscap size bifolium with ‘Pro Patria’ watermark, docket title and old horizontal folds, some fingermarking. The list of vessels is divided into separate squadron - ‘Went for the Coast of Spain with Sir Charles Wager, and from thence detach’d to the West Indies’ continues over onto the second page. Wager would go onto be First Lord of the Admiralty during the following decade. With a contemporary printed map of the area. From the papers of Secretary of State Charles Townshend who directed British foreign policy in the 1720s with his brother in law Robert Walpole.
