Mb Wbioht, Dear Sir,— l am la receipt of yours of the 11th, re lime, and beg to say that I haro naed • good deal of ft tbe last few years, and have got very good results from Its ase for both oats and wheat, I cropped tho land the first year with tar nips, and dressed part of It with fo fi tons of small lime to the acre, part with stook-yard manure, and part with 4owt Maldon Goano per aore. Next cropped with oats and barley, and had 70 bushels of barley and 90 bushels of oats to the aore ; It was laid down one year and then pat la wheat and gave 40 bushels to the aore. I thoroughly believe we could not get anything like the orops we do If It west not for the Jlme. This yesr I bought another property, and I Intend to use 600 tons. I get it at Milburn Lime Kilns. This same /aim I bought about ten years ago, the party that had It pat on a few loads of the smali lime, and It shows as destlnotly as possible j 60 bushels was about the highest I ever got of oati antli I used the lime.
