Messrs Surtees & Liddells Note for Roff is £71 4s 11d whereas their dues in your pay bill are only £68 18s 2d. The Difference being £2 6s 9d appears to lye in the Rookhope Account. & to consist of wood got by  Jno Curry, & by John Smith; who are people that I should not think at all proper to get wood for Sir Wr Blackett. If you have any notes of the Wood got for that Mill I wish you  would examine them before you come down, that the Difference may be the more easily adjusted when you are here. I am etc    HR
