A Copy of A Letter sent Chas Atkinson Esqr			Alston 23d Aug 1777

Dear Sir,

Your most esteemed favour of the 5th Inst came in due course; It would be very great satisfaction to me to have the present Accounts settled, and I wrote you that I did suppose that Doctor Halls quantity had been Delivered and that everything might have been agreeable to you, but by your Letter I find the contrary; My Son tells me he called at your Shop and Mr Mandeville told him that Doctor Hall still wanted 36 Pieces of the Quantity which I hope before now is Delivered and if so I do beg that his Account may be settled as soon as it can conveniently & indeed I would I would rather take a Bill at a long date than defer the settling Account much later; I have intelligence that Mr Gilbert has full Power to transact every part of the Lead Mine Business for Lord Carlisle and that he will be in this Country about the Middle of next Month at the latest, before which Time I could wish to have the Pay at Stanhope made, and particularly so, as if that was done, every Account between Lord Carlisle, you and myself would be settled with Mr Gilberts presence, I beg your answer by Baty on Tuesday and am 

      Dr Sr
