	What you say against Thos Marshall over Balances all I have heard of his Skill & Experience in Smelting, so I shall think no more of him.  One Potts, clerk at Fallowfield has offered; if he is well qualified I desire you will tell him to come to me; but if you think Mr Smith is preferable to him pray let Mr Smith know I shall be glad to see him as soon as convenient - George Lowes who deals in Wastes has an Inclination to offer himself:  What is his Character?  Herewith I send you fifty hand Bills about the Lead that was stolen from Allanheads Mill which you will make a proper distribution of                      I am etc       HR
