Complains that promised pay increases have not materialised, and that after Bull and Gabriel le Clerk were promoted to second and third engraver respectively at 80 p.a. each [see MINT00063 (Mint 19/1/170-71)], le Clerk received this salary 'for about 7 years [...] tho he did not act or work for the Mint during that whole Time', so that all the labour fell to Bull. After 26 years' service Bull is now worse off than when he first joined the Mint.||Printed in NC, 7: 210-12.
