[Normalized Text] [Diplomatic Text]


Stewart's executors are denying the Edinburgh Mint's claim to the money left in his possession at his death. They should be ordered to release it so that coinage work can continue and the Edinburgh Mint staff be paid the six months' arrears they are owed. Suggest various financial safeguards to be instituted at the Edinburgh Mint, and that a payment of £2,000 security should be required from the master.
