The exchequer should press Stewart's executors for the outstanding bullion at once. Advice on drawing up accounts and paying commission. Stresses that all this is written 'as coming not from an Officer of ye Mint but from a private friend': Newton does not want Allardes' queries referred to the other Mint officers, 'with whom I find it sometimes difficult to agree'.
