Mr Daniel Alder at Adderstone near Belford                                              Newcas 27h May 1774



	I have sent you Mr Bacon Forster’s Ex[ecu]tors Account of their proportion of Weardale Rents etc for the last Year & also their Accot with Sir Walter Blackett for the last five years.  I have often asked Mr Johnson, but in vain, for the Money due on the four former Years Accounts and therefore now send the whole to you hoping your Attention to the carrying forward these partnership Mines will induce you to provide for the payment of this £146 . 9s. 2d in a little time for you must be sensible there is much impropriety in putting Sir Walter Blackett thus to advance this Money for the Executors & that is contrary to the Tenor of the Lease by which they hold these Mines of him - I beg I may hear from you soon & am etc  HR

P.S.  I am reduced to write with my left hand
