'The state of a new contract for Tin'.

Author: Isaac Newton

[Normalized Text] [Diplomatic Text]


Preparatory calculations for a recommendation about the terms of a new contract 'upon supposition that no more is imported then the consumption will annually carry off'.

[Reference to 'her Majtie' means this must date from Anne's reign, and so probably predates the renewal of her tin contract on 2 June 1710.]
