       In addition to our Letter of the 26th Inst we desire you will make another experiment beside those already mentioned Viz   Let the Litharge be mixed with Coal and Charcoal in equal Quantities and the Furnace worked down with Coal only.

       But in case you have not Charcoal to do the whole we would have you omit the Experiment mentd.  2ndly in our Letter of the 26th Inst unless in the course of the Experiments it will in your opinion be more proper to try it, and ommit any other.

       We are Your hble Servts
