Part of Postscript to Messrs. Walton & Smeatons Letter of 21st May 1769 to John Ibbetson Esq. As we shall frequently want Bone Ashes for the Refining of Lead we should be glad to have the directions of the Board whether we are to Insure the Value to Newcastle from time to time as we cannot have them but from London. We did not Insure last Year. The Annual Value will be about £60 - supposing the Quantity of Lead Ore to continue as at present, and £20 worth or thereabouts will come at one Time. At a Meeting of the Directors of Greenwich Hospital at Salters Hall, on Wednesday 7th June 1769. Ordered That the Recrs. be acquainted that they need not insure the Value of the Bone Ashes that they may have from time to time from London for the use of the Refinery.
