At a Meeting of the Directors of Greenwich Hospital, at Salters Hall, on Wednesday the 15th February 1769. A Letter from the Receivers, dated the 7th instant, was read, containing their Reports upon Mr Erringtons Proposals to take a Lease of the Lead Ore Dues and also upon a Letter of Mr. Daniel Wren Concerning his dispute with them about some Dues of Lead Ore raised by him, which was not duly accounted for to the Hospital.. Resolved, That Mr Errington be acquainted, that the Board upon full consideration of his said Proposal, do not think fit to accept, thereof, being determined to continue their Resolution of Smelting and Refining the said Dues. The Board were satisfied with the Report upon Daniel Wrens case, and think he has been very justly compelled to pay the amount of the Dues in question, with Costs. Ordered That they do cause the four Houses for Workmen which they represent to be necessary at Langley Smelting Mill to be built; taking care that the Estimate of the Expence of Erecting the same, amounting to £143. 1. 9 be not exceeded. Adj[ourne]d. to this day Sennit at this place. A Copy pr Mr Ibbetson.
