of the Council of Safety, 1775-76. 297


P. S. I take the liberty herewith to send an extract from
Dr Brownriggs treatise of making salt, the climate is so suit-
able, & there are so many places on our sea coasts where
neither man of War nor cutters can come, where salt may be
made in plenty, that it is hoped some persons of sufficient
judgment & application will immediately undertake it. the
extract was made for the benefit of those who are unacquainted
with the original, to which recourse may be had by those who
are disposed to manufacture white salt any account of your
success in these undertakings must give great pleasure to all
lovers of America.
