My Lord

Some designes for Medals having been communicated to yor Lordp by others, I humbly beg leave to present the enclosed. Her Majesties effigies may be on one side with the usual inscription, & this Designe on the other; & instead of Britannia on a globe the Queen may be placed in a chair.

And if for saving her Majty & yor Lordp the trouble of approving Medals yor Lordp shall think fit that the Gravers be empowered to make such Medals as I shall approve of under my hand in writing, I am ready to undertake this trust, or otherwise to act in such manner as yor Lordp in your great wisdome shall think fit, being

My Lord

Yor Lordps most humble

and most obedient

Is. Newton
