Mr. Straker Newcastle 				Dukesf[iel]d 16th Sept'r 1792

      I have inclosed you an Inventory & Valuation of the Utensils at the Several Mills &c and also Mr Westgarth attestation, that the Sums charged in my last Rental for Repairs were in the Pay Bill for 1791, & also for the Allowance for Land Tax &c - whether, this may please Mr Skelton or not, I cannot say, it's all the vouchers that I can at this time give, though, I have not a doubt, but the People that has rec'd the Mo[ney] for the Repairs would if asked give Recc'ts w[hi]ch would, I think, hurt the <Cr[edit]> of the Pay Bill; the Rental has been kept here in the same manner since the Y'r 1727, and I beleave that there's been in that time People that suberintend the Business w[i]th as penetrating an Eye as Mr. S. &c would had it altered before this if they had thought it subject to fraud; but when I say this would not be understood to mean, that no improvment can be maid, & shall readily adopt any other method of making the Rental for the future that Mr. Skelton pleasesto point out - was much obliged to you for you speedy Answ'r to my last I am D'r Sir Yo'r H[um]ble Serv[an]t        

      I Hunter

NB shall we not have the pleasure of your company at Hexham
