	I am sorry your Ore Carriers from Coalcleugh & Allanheads are so difficult to deal with this Year - It will be wrong to lose much time in treating with them as there is so much Ore lying at the several Mines I see no other Way but for you to make as good a Bargain as you can with them either by promising them a Pay in October, or if no better can be, to give them some little Advance in the Price; but in doing this you will be attentive to what the Quakers Company & other Proprietors do & regulate yourself by their Conduct    

                                            I am etc                     HR
