    Invites the alleged rapping 'sperrits' to reply to William Palliser who wrote to The Times complaining about the expense of the controversy over pointed chilled shot (Palliser's invention) and shot of flat-headed steel. Criticizes the fact that so much public money has been spent on 'unnecessary experiments' and wonders where the 'increasing cost of projectiles stop?'.
