Dear Sir

Forster called this morning with his Candle Bills for Coalcleugh, & Allenheads, signed by the Agents amounting to £186.10... which I paid; On my giving him Notice that no more Candles would for the future be taken from him for your Mines; he made a request that his Stock of Candles in hand which had been made for the use of your Mines may be taken from him amounting to about 100 Dozen, I thought it reasonable & consented to it.

	I am &c.             J:E:B:
