Mr Weight, Dear Sir,— l am la reoelpt of yours of the 11th, re lime, and beg to say that I hftTo aneid » good deal of It the last few years, and have got very good results from Its use for both oats and wheat, I cropped the land tbe first year with turnips, and dressed part of it with fo £ tons of small lime to the aore, part with stock-yard manore, and part with 4owt Maldon Goano per aore. Next cropped with oats and barley, at>d had 70 bushels cf barley and 90 bushels of oati to the aore ; It was laid down one year and then put In wheat and gave 40 bushels the aore. I thoroughly believe wa could not get anything like the orops we do If It were nut for the lime. This yesr I bought another property, and I Intend to use 600 tons. I get it at Mllburn Lime Kllna. ThU ume /aim I bought about ten yean ago, the party that had It put on a few loads of the small lime, and It shown as dwtlnotly as poisible ; 60 bushels was about the highest I ever got of oati until I used the lime.
