LESTER has much pleasure in submitting to the Public the following Analyses, Report, and Testimonials of his Lime, and Limestone and having made every arrangement for an extensive trade, he hopes by strict attention to business, and from the superior quality of the Stone, with the unlimted sup- ply his great range of Rocks afford, to be entitled to a share of public support, and begs to assure his friends and customers that nothing shall be wanting on his part to give them every satisfaction. ANALYSES AND REPORT By SHERIDAN MUSPRATT, M.D. (HON.), F.R.S Ed., M.R.I.A., &c., &c., Honorary Fellow of the New York College of Ph armacy and Member of the Royal Agricultural Society of England Membre de la Societe D'Encouragement, and Membre de L' Academie Nationale de France, Editor of Chemistry, Theoretical, Practical and Analytical, as applied to Arts and Manufactures, and and author of other works on Chemistry and the Blowpipe, Founder and Principal of the College of Chemistry, Liverpool. ANALYSES. William Lester, Esq.—Sir,—I have completed the An- alyses of the samples of Lime which you sent me, and have pleasure in submitting the results to you. They are as follows:— China bed lime.

REPORT. William Lester, Esq. April 4th, 1863. Sir,—I have pleasure in handing you my report on the samples of Lime, the complete Analyses of which I en- close herewith. Both Limes are very well burnt, are very pure, and when slaked, are remark- ably white. This is more particularly the case with the sample of The China Bed Lime," whose purity and whiteness well adapt it for many uses in the arts, more particularly for ".Bleaching Powder" manufacture. Both Limes are well suited for Chemical purposes generally, where a pure white lime is desired also for building and other uses, to which lime is applied. From the great freedom of the limestones from which these limes were prepared; from sand and silicic acid; they would, in my opinion, be well suited for fluxing purposes in the smelt- ing of iron ores, &c.. SHERIDAN MUSPRATT, M.D., Professor of Chemistry. TESTIMONIALS. [ 2, Lavan-street, West Derby Road, Liverpool, March 24th, 1863. Dear Sir,—I have used about 20 tons of your ordinary Lime in the houses I am now building, and consider that it is quite equal to any I have used before, and I have been many years a builder, Your's truly, Adam Daniels. To William Lester, Esq., Lime works, Minera, near Wrexham. Liverpool, 22, Upper Duke-street, March 25th, 1863. Dear Sir,—We are much pleased with your hand picked Lime; we have no hesitation in stating that it is the best of any brought into Liverpool. You will please send us a Truck as before on Wednesday next, We are, Dear Sir, W. Jones, and Co. Mr Lester, Minera. Gas Works, Wellington, March 31st., 1863. Mr Lester,—Sir,—I beg to say that we have now used your Lime exclusively here for some time. It is very white, free from stone, and when slaked yields a good deal of flour. I am sure it is of a far better quality for purifying than any ever used here before, I am, Sir, yours obediently, William Sterrit, Working Manager. Wynnstay, Ruabon, 31st March, 1863. Mr Lester,—Dear Sir,—Having used your Lime here, for some time, I certainly must say, that I prefer it to any other for plastering, and will shortly send you another order, I remain, Dear Sir, Your's truly, George Street. Turkey Paper Mills, Wrexham, April 8th, 1863. Mr William Lesterj-Dear Sir,—I beg to apologise for not having replied to your last. The Lime you have sup- plied us with is the best we have here, and suits us ad- mirably. I am. Dear Sir, Your's truly, C. H. Greville. Eaton Estate Works, Pulford, April 8th, 1863. Mr. W. Lester, Dear Sir,—I have some reluctance in replying to your letter, regarding the quality of your Lime, not having had sufficient time to prove its quality. But I may in the mean time state, that your Lime is more profitable than the other Minera Lime, because there is less refuse, and consequently it goes farther in the way of making more mortar for either building or plastering, I have not yet had sufficient time to prove the strength of the mortar. We shall be glad to have another truck as soon as you can send it to Pulford, I am, Dear Sir, Your's &c. John Morison. I Vron Colliery, near Wrexham, April 11th, 1863. W. Lester Esq., Dear Sir,—We have much pleasure in stating that the Lime we have had from you (about 40 tons), has given the most perfect satisfaction, both for building purposes and for the Farm. We can with con- I fidence recommend it, We are, Dear Sir, Your's truly, Maurice & Low. 2, Northgate-Street, Chester, April 10th, 1863. To Mr. Charles Davies.—Sir,—I beg to inform you of my perfect satisfaction with Lester's Lime, Minera, which you are at the present time serving me with; I can truly assert it is the best Lime I have had for some time. Yours truly, William G. Denson, Builder. Chester, April 14th, I860. Sir,—I have used the Lime from the Eisteddfod Minera Works, and can confidently recommend it as a first-class article, and giving every satisfaction. Yours truly, n W. Parratt, Builder, Deva Terrace. rr. Charles Davies. Chester, April 21st, 1863. Sir,—Having used a large quantity of Lime from the Eisteddfod Works, Minera, I consider it to be a first-class Lime for both brick-setting and plastering. Yours truly, Mr. Charles Davies. Z3 Robert Bellis, Builder. STONE. From the Lilleshall Companyi near Shiffnall, Shropshire, April 3rd, 1863. To Mr. Lester, Minera, Having now used 2,000 tons of your Limestone, we find it to be a first rate fluxing stone; none better comes to this district, if so good, we cant speak too highly of its regular quality, Your's respect- fully, The Lilleshall Co., per A. C. Jones. Frood Iron Works, Wrexham, April 4th, 1863. W. Lester, Esq., After having used your Limestone for 3 or 4 months, we can say it is equal to any Limestone we know of for fluxing. And we can recommend it to any Ironmasters, Your's truly, Sparrows and Poole. Borough Surveyor's Office, Wrexham, April 10th, 1863. William Lester, Esq., Minera, Dear Sir,—From a care- ful examination of your extensive range of Lime Rocks at Minera, and from the plans submitted to me for working the same, I am of opinion that you have by far the best Rock in the District, in point of quality and situation. Indeed, the quantity is unlimited, and from its regular bearings, and massive proportions, it clearly proves itself to be the Parent Rock, and as such, of superior quality to those around it. This is also proved in the greater purity oj the Lime and its well known superior quality for plastering and building purposes. Your working plans are well arranged, and will soon enable you to supply any quantity of both Lime and Limestone of first rate quality, I am, Sir, Your's truly, Hugh Davies, Borough Surveyor, Wrexham.
