Mzlion, May 16th, 1889* Mr Wbight, Dear Sir,— l am lo reoolpt of yours of the llth, re lime, and beg to ■*? th»t I have used a good deal of It the laat few years, and have got very good reaulta from Its use for both oats and wheat, I cropped the land the first year with turnips, and dressed part of It with fog tons of small lime to the aore, part with stook-yard manure, and part with 4owt Maldon Guano per aore. Next cropped With oats and barley, and hid 70 bushels of barley and 90 buahels of oats to the aore ; It was laid down one year and then put In wheat and gave 40 bushels to the •ore. I thoroughly believe we could not got 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 get it at Mtlbutn Lime Kilns. Tbtsasme faim I bought about ten years ago, the party that had |t put on a few loads of the emaU lime, ana it shows as dfstlnotly as poislble; 60 bushels was about the highest I ever got of oata until I osed the lime.
