To the Right Honourable the Lord High Treasurer of England

May it please your Lordship

I lately laid before your Lordship an accompt of the charge of Medals of Gold & silver for her Majestys Coronation amounting to 2485. 18. 312: towards the discharge of which I have in my hands 1886. 6. 312 being the remainder of the Ballance of Mr Neales Accompt. Which money was given by Act of Parliament to defray the expence & charges of his late Majestys several Mints & to clear the monies which are due to the several Importers there. Out of this Remainder there have been paid several summs on accompt of the Country Mints amounting unto 1767. 3. 9 & other summs are due for all which the said Remainder is not sufficient, which therefore being placed on the Coynage Duty the above mentioned summ of 1886li. 6. 312 will remain clear excepting such summs as your Lordship shall think fit to allow out of the same for rebuilding the Press house & paying to Mr Weddel a salary of 60li per annum to which the Coynage Duty is not applicable. I humbly pray your Lordships Warrant to the Auditors of the Imprests for allowing out of the said Remainder such summ as your Lordship shall think fit towards the discharge of the Accompt above mentioned & that the residue of this Accompt may be paid out of such other Fund as your Lordship in your great Wisdome shall think fit.
All which &c

Is. Newton
