Mb Wbight, Dear Sir,— l am In receipt of yours of the lltb, re lime, and beg to say that I have used a good deal of It the last few I years, and have got very good results from Its use for both oats and wheat, I cropped the land the first year with turnlpr, and dressed part of It with four tons of small lime to the aore, part with atook-yard manure, and part with 4owt ' Maldon Guano per aore. Next cropped with oats and barley, and had 70 bushels i of barley and 90 bushels of oats to the aore ; It was laid down one year and then put la wheat and gave 40 buebels to the aore. I thoroughly believe we oonld not get anything like the orops we do I! it were not for the lime. This year I booght another property, and I Intend to use 600 tons. I get it at Milburn Lime Kilns. This same /aim I bought about ton years ago, the party that had it pnt on a few loads of the small lime,, and it ahoirf as destlootly a* poisible; 60 bushels was about the highest I ever got of oats until I used the lime. Yours ttuly, H. Duns. F. WRIGHT,
