Honest Jacob             							March 2 1709/10 

      I perceive by yr last that in a very short time All will be Smelted up and carried to the halfeway, I do not know what weather you have with you but here tis like Summer,  You must write Mewburn what time you design the Pay that he may acqt Mr Fenwick and Mr Featherstone to have their money Ready in a little time for the Lead they have had of me, Give me an Estimate by the very first post what you Judge the whole may come to, as also what money you Recd. & what Will Lowes paid for the felling and Carriage of Wood.

      I ordered Will Lowes some time Agoe to get two Workmen to view Fallowfield house & Outhouses, and to give an Estimate of the Charge, I have also order’d him to gett other two Workmen to view it, for the first Estimate is very unreasonable, I would have you to make the best Inquiry you can for two good Workmen, and order them to come & view Fallowfield house & take their Estimate for I would have it done with the very best Slates in the County & lett me know where they are to be had, and the prices they demand perforce to be laid upon the place, for if it be well done with good slates it will last for Ever, fail not to give a perfect Acct. of this as soon as conveniently you can by a line to yr Assr’d friend

Mr Jacob Peart att Fallowfield nigh Hexham Northumberland
