Mr Jos[ep]h Dickinson						Newcastle 20th December 1804

Dufton near Appleby


      Since I wrote you the 6th Inst. Mr Blackett has had some Conversation with the Lead Agents and finds that the Time beforementioned will not be a convenient one for the Purpose of going upon the Inspection of the & letting the Bargains; he has accordingly acquainted Mrs Beaumont Messrs Bowns & Cockshutt with the same & has named the 7th of January for the Bargains at Coalcleugh, the 8th for those of Allenheads & the 9th. & 10th. For those of Weardale, which he hopes may prove a convenient Time for them and you to attend. The Agents at the Mines will be prepared to show you the Mines on the 31st. Inst. at which Time the present Bargains with the Workmen expire.

      I am etc. 	J. E. B
