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 years, and have got very good results from Its nse for both oats and wheat, I oropned the land the first year with turnips, and dressed part of It with fo S tona of amali lime to the tote, part with ttook-yard manure, and part wi<h 4owt Maldon Guano per acre. Next cropped with oats and barley, and had 70 busbels cf barley and 90 bushels of oats to the aore ; It was laid down one year and then put In wheat and gave 40 basbels to the acre. I thoroughly believe we could not get anything like the orops we do If It were not for the lime. This year I booght another property, and I Intend to use 600 tons. I gat it at Mllburn Lime Kilns. This same 'aim I bought about ten years ago, the party that bad It put on a few loada of the amali lime, and it shows m dejtlootly as poisiblej 60 busbels was about the highest I ever got of o«ti until I mcd the lime, Yoqrs truly, H.
