To the Right Honourable the Lord high Treasurer

May it please your Lordship

We humbly take leave to represent to your Lordship that the house in the Mint belonging to the Surveyer of the Meltings is so decayd that it cannot be repair'd

The Money Allow'd by Act of Parliament for repairs and Buildings in the Mint is not Sufficient to keep all the Houses in the Mint in good repair, most of which are very old, and to build new ones

That Your Lordship being Impowr'd by an Act of Parliament anno 1705 to dispose of 500li a Year for Salaries and other Service's of the Mint out of which Your Lordship has been pleas'd to allow 400li a year to the Monyers for their Maintenance, We humbly pray Your Lordship will please to grant us an Order for the remaining 100li a Year for two Years to Commence from Christmas last to enable Us to build a new house for the Surveyer of the Meltings.

All which is humbly Submitted to your Lordships great Wisdome

I Stanley
