In answer to the Memorial of Mr Nicholson & Mr Briggs I humbly represent that I told them that without a Warrant from the King I could not receive copper in blanks nor coin money with round edges for the people, that Mr Appleby & Mr Hines having all things ready for a triall were to coyne their five Tunns in the first place & that when I was ready for the Memorialists I would give them notice, but it would take up some time first to prepare for a tryall. There is no difficulty in rounding the edges of the blanks, & I have not delivered another Cutter to Mr Appleby & Mr Hines, & they are not contractors with your Lordships, but my servants upon tryal & good behaviour. know And if the Minimalists have built furnaces & prepared a sufficient quantity of copper ready for the cutters, & been at sufficient charges in preparing the same they have done it contrary to my advice & without staying for sufficient authority & can blame no body but themselves if they should lose their charges.

All which &c

Is. Newton
