The Upper Coalcleugh Vein in the east End, is now supposed to be through the principle part of the Cross Vein, and at present is in a promising situation, being let for at 20/-per Bing the ensuing Quarter, notwithstanding its disconvenient situation for taking the Work to Bank. Should it continue another quarter will be under the necessity of driving the Waggon Level forward, and sinking another Whimsey, down into the forehead, which expense will be soon repa

My Dear Sir
Your letter which I rec'd this morning has indeed given us very great concern; at my uncles advanced age so very severe an illness must reduce him very much & I greatly fear if he gets over this attack it will be long before he recovers his strength again, however we hope as he is rather better, that this mild heat here will be of service to him, & that we may all meet again this Spring in the north, very few people

In answer to your application of this morning the present price of Ref[ined] Lead is £36 per F[odder] & of Comm[on] £35 @ 6 Mo[nths] Credit, but at present I can not sell the quantity of Ref[ined] Lead you mention without an equal q[uantit]y of Comm[on] Lead. I further beg leave to observe that it is the custom of this Office that when Lead is bought on Commission the purchaser declares his principle.

My Dear Sir
Many thanks to you for your kind letter which has given us much pleasure. Ingham must have treated my Uncle Harry with judgments & has been indeed very attentive but after so very serious illness it must be some time before he recovers his strength & usual state of health. Admiral Collingwoods letter was very satisfactory no intelligence having come from that quarter for some time, owing to the vessel with the dispatches having been taken, It seems now however that t
My Dear Sir
This very sudden dissolution of Parl[iamen]t at this time is most inconvenient to me as I shall most probably be obliged to set out for the North in a very few days. Mr Miggison tells me there is no occasion for my being at Newcastle before the middle of next week & I hope all will be quiet, if Ld Percy does not stand there will be no opposition if he should offer himself perhaps it may be necessary for me as Sheriff to engage <to w’hold> & in that case will y
