Saturday June 9 - 92
I am in sentiment with you & the Director of the Mint,
respecting the purchase of the Lots & Houses which are
offered for sale in preference to Renting – as the latter
will certainly exceed the interest of the former. –
That all the applications may be brought to view, & can
indeed, for coining & c ; – Mr. Lear will lay the
letters and engravings before you to be shewn to the Director
of the Mint. – I have no other object or wish in doing
it than to obtain the best
Y[ou]rs. & c.
