D'r Sir                                                   		Dukesfield 1st Octob'r 1792

      In looking over your March & June Quart'ly Acct's was surprised to find 200 1/2 Days charged to Adamson's Lad which is 44 1/2 Days more (including 26 Sundays) then theirs days between the 1st Jan'y & 30th June. Your Man Simon Dodd is charged 333. Days in the above Quart'rs. You'll please to explain the above charges, & I desire for the future the No of Days that each Person works be entered weekly in your Wage Book saing what kind of work they have been imployed at each Week. Your man cannot be allowed Days Wages & piece work at the same time 

      I am D'r Sir Your Hble Servt.

      I Hunter

NB Why does not Harvey send the Largest Quantities of the Ton Tail Ore to this Mill first 
From the tone this was presumably directed to one of his under-agents at either Allenheads or Rookhope
