The Money Allow'd by Act of Parliamt. 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 Lordp. being Impowr'd by an Act of Parliamt. anno 1705 to dispose of 500li a Year for Salaries and other Service's of the Mint out of wch. Your Lordp. has been pleas'd to allow 400li a year to the Monyers for their Maintenance, We humbly pray Your Lordp will please to grant us an Ordr. for the remaining 100li a Year for two Years to Com̄ence from Christm.s last to enable Us to build a new house for the Surveyr. of the Meltings.

All which is humbly Submitted to yr. Lordp. great Wisdome
