To the Right Honorable the Lords
Commissioners of his Majesties Treasury

May it please your Lordships

I have considered and examined the Vouchers of Mr. Iames Girard's Bill hereunto annexed, for engraving of seales, which your Lordships were pleased to referr to the Principal Officers of his Majesties Mint the 8th. of february Last, and humbly certifie your Lordships that I find them right, the work good and the prices reasonable, being the same heretofore allowed for work of the like sizes.

It likewise appears to me by proper receipts that the seales in the said Bill mentioned have been delivered to the respective Offices or Officers of State they were ordered for, and as they have been Weighed in the Mint that they are of the Weight expressed in the said Bill.

Which is most humbly submitted to Your

Lordships great Wisdom

Isaac Newton
