Mr Dickinson Coalcleugh					Dukesfd. 7th April


      As the Season is now approaching when the Carriers will be starting to bring the Ore fm the Mines to the Mills, I do suppose that it is needless in me to remind you that I would not have any Carriers to carry ore fm your Mines this year but those that Carried last season of Sir Thos. Blackett’s Ore.  Mr Salkeld told me some time ago that there was some that had got Ore at your place that deserted our Carriage, but I suppose it has been got unknown to you therefor beg (to prevent any for the future that did not carry of Sr. Thos. Blackett’s Ore last back end) that you’ll give such orders to those that delivers the Ore, to let none have but those discribed above with out a line from me. I am wth Compts to Mrs Dickinson & Mr Crawhall

      Dr. Sr. Yor mo. Hble Servt
