Report – George Crawhall to Martin Morrison – 31 Dec 1813

The Sun Vein & Flatts at the East End in the Great Limestone is the most productive of any part of this Mine, but not so good as last Quar[ter] , the Ore

Report – George Crawhall to Martin Morrison – 31 Mar 1814

March 31st 1814 Coalcleugh The Mines at Coalcleugh in general are much better than they were the last Bargains, and have produced a considerable greater quantity of Ore the last quarter than I expected from their appearance at Christmas and from the present state in all probability will continue raising an equal quantity of Ore in the ensuing quarter.
