To  Mr Caleb Hunter at Allanheads                                      Newcas   29  June 1770

Sir      I have received Mr Westgarths & Mr Maughans opinion about Wolfcleugh, and desire it may be followed as closely as possible; and no other Lead Charge incurred than what they recommend.

     I do not doubt but Mr Robt. Allgood told you what I said to him about appointing an Additional Man to watch the Moors from the 25 of next Month till the Shooting Season is over.

     Pray send the inclosed Letter to Mr Westgarth.

P.S. I hope you are making full use of the good washing weather, that you may get your ore away in good time.                            I am etc    HR

Wrote Mr Westgarth at the same time about the Moors.
