The Committee appointed to inquire into the nature and qualities of the Mineral Earth brought by Colonel Foster from Brookfield, reported, that it was their opinion, and the opinion of those with whom they conversed with thereon, that it contains a matter useful for the production of Nitre, but that there was too small a quantity for an experiment. Whereupon,

Ordered, That this Committee be directed to appoint some suitable person to repair to Brookfield make some experiment with the Mineral Earth which is said to be there in large quantities.
