NB: Documents ff. 167-80. The original transcription [was] Fowler's, and he notes that the document is unsigned. From internal evidence that the price of tin "at this present" is 29 pounds, Fowler dates the document as "after September 29, 1594" when tin was listed at 29 pounds in the list of prices of tin in Ellesmere MS 2349.
