Mr Cuth Peart N.Castle

Dear Sr

      I recd a line from the Clerk of the Skinnerburn Foundry in regard to the Sum we had made due to that Foundry in the Pay Bill, and find on examining the Accots. that we have charged the Cast plates for the Refinery twice, so that you must deduct £10. 3s. 3d from the due in the Pay Bill wch will their demand on Sr. Jno. Trevelyan 82. 1. 7½ for the Smelt Mill & Dfd Refinery. I should like to hear from you in what manner Mr Blackett will choose to have the above Error rectified, whether he’ll let the Accots. stand as they are and me to account for the over charge to Sr. Jno. after as there will be several little things to charge to Sir Jno. after the Pays, or to have it taken of the Accots. &c &c I am yrs IH Jr

P.S. I am expecting every Post to have an accot. from Mr Morrow & shall then write Mr Blackett in regard to the East Land Carriage pay
