Milton, May 15th, 1889. j Mb Whqbt, , Dear Sir,— l am la reoelpt of yours of the 11th, r# lime, and beg to say that I have used a good deal of It the last few yeai s, and have got very good results from its use for both oats and wheat, V oropped tbo land the first year with turnips, and dressed part of it with fo £ tons of small lime to the acre, part with stock-yard manure, and part with 4owt Maldon Guano per aore. Next oropped with oats and barley, »od h«d 70 basbel* of barley and 90 bashels of oats to the aore ? it was laid down one year and then pat m wheat and gave 40 bushels to the aore. I thoroughly believe we could not get anything like the orops we do If It were not for the lime. This year I bought another property, and I Intend to use 500 tons, I get It at Mllburn Lime Kilns* This same faim I bought about ten yean ago, ths party that had It put on a few loads of the small lime, and it shows as dfitlnotly as possible; GO bashels was about the highest I ever got of oati until I vied the lime. Yours truly, Ef. Dunk. F. WRIGHT,
