To the Rt Honble the Lords Commrs of his Majties Treasury.

May it please yor Lops

We have considered the annexed Petition and believe that Mr Hoare the Petitioners Father did for neare forty yeares with great skill & diligence serve the Crown in the Office of Comptroller of the Mint & during the late Recoynage being infirm with old age imployed two Deputies (his Nephew to inspect the whole Mint & one Mr Wells to inspect the Melting House) & also came sometimes in his own person to the Mint. And we find that in con{d}|s|ideration of the extraordinary coynage & f{illeg}|or| rent of his Garden he was allowed an add{illeg}|i|tional salery after the rate of 300 p annu till the time of his death. And what he may further deserve to equall him with the other Officers we most humbly submit to yor Lordps great judgment & justice.

Is. Newton.
