	I hear you were in Town last week - a few Minutes of Conversation then would have communicated what I had to say to you about the Lead Mine Lease I wrote to you some time ago - If you have one of the Alston Moor Leases it would shorten your work in the drawing otherwise the Covenants will be difficult to adjust - This Lease will be wanted in a little time so if you are to be in this Town soon I shall be glad to see you about it but it is not worth while for you to come on purpose                                 I am etc    HR
