Scope and Content

Roger Kenrick to Sir John Trevor (Cannon Row, Westminster): has sent 4 bags by Jonson, a Chester carrier, but could not spare any more as he needed them for corn; does not give any encouragement to sow more [sainfoin] in any case 'for there is but small hopes of reaping any great profits' and after two years' trials results seem to be getting worse; says the measure they use is the same as the Winchester measure, i.e. 31 quarts...; 'as for our gallons in Wales they are more than the gallons in England'.
