The Mines at Allenheads are at present more promising, particularly Bretton Vein to the last as well as the Floot, Mr. Crawhall forms great Expectations.- Weardale Mines likewise are in an improving State, as you will observe by the enclosed Report. – Lord Burford’s Lessees have not given any Answer to the offer made them of a Lease of a part of the Copyhold, they paying one full sixth part of the clean washed Ore, clear of all Claims of the Rector, with the usual Covenants. Thos. Crawhall went with his Father Yesterday to Allenheads &c. with Subsistence Money for the Workmen. I have not made any sale since my last Letter. I am &c. J.E.B.
