I wrote to you last post, & gave account of what {Availes} us, & begged your advice & direction. Although I gave express orders for pieces of the first & last of both pots already melted: yet they have so mingled the barrs, that I can only send you pieces of the two pots distinct; but am not able to tell you whither {sic} these pieces are of the first or last of the respective pots. I referr you to my last for the Essays {sic} & for the allay put into those pots.

You need not give your self trouble about the name of the Ship in which our things are: those we have a bill of loading sent us.

The Officers & servants of the mint as bussy {sic} about trying the Pix of the moneys coined before the Vnion: but in a post or two, I hope to send you some of {illeg}|our| Coin, & further nottices about our meltings & Pot Essays {sic}.

I must beg of you to acquaint by your next, in what forwardness the Puncheons & Dyes are & when we may expect them. I am


Your most hume and most

Oblidged servant
