A Copy of a Letter sent Mr C Atkinson			27th Apl 76


I take this opportunity of acquainting you that on casting up our Accounts I find we shall have occasion for £2600 to make Stanhope Pays and lend that Months support Money there and at Alston moor as such I hope you’ll be so kind as provide for me against Monday 13th May; you’ll please to be so obliging as let it all be Newcastle Bank Notes and Silver because on enquiry I find the Sunderland Notes will not do. By the Accounts I have from Stanhope I dare say there’s no fear of having 3000 Pieces of Lead at Swalwell on or before that Time and you’ll receive a Cake of Bullion before that time. As Mr Hall has purchased the Brownlyhill Ore this year at the rate of 6s p Fodder for Lead made out of it less than last Year we may suppose the Governor & Company looks upon the prospects of the Marketts to be not more than 6/- p Fodder worse than last years price.
