Dear Sir,— ln reply to your enquiries about lime for top-dresslne I beg? to say 1 used about 25 cwt. tothe aore last spring at Buocleuoh with very great suo oess, and Intend going largely Into It for the future. In my opinion hls tbe best manure one oan nse on dry land. Youn frithfolly, H* T. WiKTMt*BIVERBDALE. i Miltok, May 15th, 1889. Ma Wright, Dear Sir,— l am m reoelpt of yours of the 11th, r« lime, and beg to say that I have used a good deal of It the last few years, and have got very good results frpm Its use for both oats and wheat, I cropped the land the firat year with turnips, and dressed part of It with fog tons of small lime to tbe aore, part with ■teok-yard manure, and part with 4owt Maldon Guano per acre. Next cropped with oats and barley, and had 70 bushels rf barley and 80 bushels of oats to the aora ; It was laid, down one year and then put In whsat and gave 40 bushels to the •ore. I thoroughly believe we oould not 'get anything like the crops we do If It were not for tbe lime. This yesr I bought another property, and I Intend to use 500 tons. I get It at Mllburn Lime Kilns. This same /aim I bought about ten years ago, the party that had lt put on a few loads of the small lime, and It show, as deitlnotly as poiiiblej 60 bushels was about the highest I ever got of oats until I used the lime, '^oara truly, H.
