Penneyweight


#1

I wasn’t going to do this But here it is; In 1267 Henry III
enacted ART 51 " An english peny salled a Sterling, round and
without clipping, shall weigh 32 wheat corns in the mist of the
ear, and 20 d. do make an Ounce, and 12 Ounces one pound do male
a gallon of wine and 8 gallons of wine do make a London Bushel
which is the eight part of a Quarter."

now someone send me a Quarter to drink and I be herring no more
of this, or anything else.
