To Mr George Douglass in Berwick upon Tweed                                 Newca[stle] 30th July 1767


I expect Mr John Bell and Mr Geo Brown will be at Tweedmouth on Tuesday next in the Evening to examine & measure the work done at the pittmen’s houses for Mr Wray is not well enough to come. You may pay Mr Bell the half Years rent for the Colliery; and you may acquaint any of the other Tenants that they may pay their rents to him, particularly John Anderson.

Such work as is finished according to the Contracts, Mr Bell will I hope be able to settle, if Notes are ready for the same & are found right by him. I am etc    HR
