      Dukesf’d. 13th June 1777

Mr Dickinson Coalcleugh

Dr Sr

      Christr. Bell’s son is now with me complaining of his yesterdays treatment, which if he tells the truth I think he has just case for it, ‘that several Carriers who had no loding to the mine were allowed to have Ore & he sent away without‘.

      You are sensible how much Freemen presume just as the case of an Ellection  and what clamor they make with only an imaginary case; and I do think (when it can be don without any injury to the Works) that they ought to have some little favours shown; which I beg may be don to him, not withstanding what I wrote you on the 11th inst. for I make no doubt but either he or his father will go & complain to Sir Jno. Tevelyan once they hear his got into the Country; and one would wish to prevent troubling him with such kind of complaints when in our power.

      I am Yrs &c   IH:Jr
