Suppose it were enquired, What weight of Coined Money of Standart fineness one is to receive when he gives in to the Mint a Pound weight of Bulzeon 9 Deniers fine. In the first Table in the Column marked at the top, Pound weight of Silver, and over-against 9 in the Margent your find 12 Ounces 15 Drops 3160100 Grains the weight desired; The same way for an Ounce of Silver 12 Deniers fine one is to receive one Ounce one Drop 1163100 Grains of Coyned Money of Standart fineness, and so of the rest: and for two Pound weight of Silver of 10 Deniers fine, one is to receive one Pound 12 Ounces 13 Drops 3426100 Grains.

But if the Bulzeon given in to the Mint be of a fineness consisting of Deniers and Grains, for Example, a Pound weight of Silver 10 Deniers 8 Grains fine, add the weight of Standart Silver equivalent to that of a Pound weight 10 Deniers fine, to wit, 14 Ounces 6 Drops 3518100 Grains to the weight of Standart Silver equivalent to a Pound weight of Silver 8 Grains fine (found in the second Table,) to wit, 7 Drops 2517100 Grains the Sum, which is 14 Ounces 14 Drops 2435100 Grains is the weight of Standart Silver, of equal value with a Pound weight of Silver 10 Deniers 8 Grains fine. The same method is to be observed in enquiring the weight of Silver of Standart fineness of the same value with any number of Pounds, Ounces, &c. of Bulzeon of any fineness.

Since there are no ordinary Denominations of Weights below Grains, the hundredth parts of a Grain are subjoyned for the more exactness.
