Catalogue Entry: MINT00465

Response to the petition of the former Edinburgh bullion clerk William Hamilton, referred by the Treasury to the London Mint.

Author: Isaac Newton

Source: Mint 19/III.199, National Archives, Kew, Richmond, Surrey, UK

[Normalized Text] [Diplomatic Text]


It appears Hamilton's name was inadvertently left out of the new indenture drawn up at the accession of King George: Newton recommends its re-instatement.


[Note on dating: replies to a letter of 'May 26th last', and presumably belongs to the first year of George's reign.]

Printed in NC, 6: 226-7.
