State of Coalcleugh Leadmines Sept. 30th 1816 Coalcleugh Mines etc continued very poor and nothing new has been discovered since last bargains, from the appearance of the present workings I am of opinion that a great part of the present bargains let at the reduced price of 30/- will not admit the workmen to exceed from 6/ to 9/ pWeek earning, and those in the best situations not more than from 9/ to 12/ pWeek without some unforeseen circumstance occur which is frequently t

Allenheads. Oct 5/1816             Michaelmas Bargains Allenheads Mines are much the same as stated in the last report, and upon the whole likely to produce more Ore the ensuing quarter, the Old Workings I think are better - the cross Vein at the East end is wrought by 4 Men @ 28/ pBg, and has every appearance of continuing productive, after the water level gets up (which I suspect will be in the course of six months) the Vein will then be wrought to greater advant
