WHereas the prefent Pre jeftors of the late Mr. "Wood's Patent feem a lirtle Jiettl'd at a hrc Advertifement pnblifh'd in the Daily Poft, wherein is re-m.irk'd the great Wafte of* their Meral, aud other Particulars, by way of p.efle6Hon upon the Iron made by rheir Invention, which they are pleas'd to aJledge i^all Fcanda-lous and malicious  I have therefore thought proper to interpofe in this Difpure, and remind thefe Genrtemen, that rhey have in their Power a much furer Means, than any they have hitherto had recourfe to, of filenciug their Adverfaries upon this Head. They have now a Work erected near Gielfea, where, befides the fatUfying fuch Peifons as have been nam'd by a Committee of Coiuicil to fee an Experiment, they have likewife an Oj'portiuuty of convincing the moft Incredulous about London, that there is no reasonable Objection to lie made to rhe extraordinary Wafte of their Iron cr otherwife, by inviting People, without excejJtion, to come and vifjt thtru: Work, as often as they pleafc, for Satisfaftion herein. If their Method were really in that Perfriflion they would fain have rhe World underftand ir to be, it is recommended ro rhe Conliderarion of rhe Imparrial, whether it be rcafonable to fupj ofe that rhey would fo long have been wanting in this Particular , and whether this Negle�t has not l>een o\ving ro a Confcioi.fnefs of theirs, that a publick Viiitation would turn to rheir Difad-vanragc. In refpeifl to this Experiment, it is pollible their Hoyc may 1�, to be able, fome how or orher, ro imjiofe nyoxx the Infpeetors at one iingle Operation, which a V.firation from Numbers of People, at different Tim.s, would leave rhem without all Hopes of accompliftimg. But if I have injur'd rhem by this LnJuiuation, the World will be ^leafed to obferve how careful I have l�en herel>y ro pomt out to them an erfedtttal Method whereliy ro free themfelves from rhe Imputation of it. Hut, l>efore I conclude, I lnuft l>eg Leave to ask thof� Gentlemen one civil Queftion which is, how rhey came to apprehend themfelves ro be ar Liberty ro make Bar Iron wirh Tir-Coai Fire, iince, whUft rheir Airiir w^s depending l>efore Mr. Atromey ancl Mr. Soliciror-Gene-ral, rhey were rold in exprefs Terms, rhar they were not at Lil*rry fo ro do during rhe Subliftance of iiiy Parent ? I have heai'd of their having rwo Patents, the one for making Pig-Metai from the Oar, the other for'making a raw or prepar'd Iron  but I-never have js yet heard thac they were poffefs'd of a PareJit for making Bar-Iron wirh Pit-Coal Fire, which I think ir incumbent on them to make'appear, before they can with Keafon expect that any thinking Perfon will be difpos'd to engage in their Undertaking. Whether I have been injur'd in refpeifl hereto, or otherwife, by thofe People, to the leffening of my Capacity to fatisfy or difcharge any Parr of my Arrear I at prefent ftand charg'd with ro rhe Publick, I hope the Parliament will be pleafed ro take mto coniideratiou, and puniih or redrefs me as the Demerits or Merits of tef Cafe may require. "Tho. Tomkyns. N. B. I am perfiuded that the World in general will joyn in Opinion with the Advertifer in the Daily Pbftj that though it is pollible for an expert Artift to make my Competitors Iron, after an exccliive Wafte of the Mecfl and P;uns in Workmanlhip, mro Nails, &c. yet tixit their Iron may neverthelefs be poiitivdy bad.
