Mr Crawhall 							Dukesfield 8th June 1793

      When at Allanheads Mill on the 3d Mr Sparke made a complaint against your Man Hutchinson of being bribed by Spark the Washer to team Bous Ore among the Cutting Ore & that he came to the Mill in the Night that he might not be detected. I saw the Ore, it is as good as what was laid down for Bous I believe the complaint proceeds from malice, but being maid by the Clark at the Mill must have the matter fully investigated, therefor beg that you'll take the trouble by going to the pirson that delivers the Kilhope Ore (for Spark does not think him innocent & learn whether Emersons, Sparks Man, & your Man did not all fill at the same Ore at the mine, and whether he cals it Bous or Cutting Ore if your Man is innocent the aspirtion ought to be removed & shall expect to hear from you on the subject. I am Yr's &c
