As I have not recd any Answer to mine of the 8th Instant which I understand by Mr Yeats whose Letter I recd on the 8th was left at your House on the 14th Instant I again send this to beg the Favour of a Line from you & also to acquaint you that I intend to go to NewCastle on the 29th Inst. & will be there till the Morning of the 7th February I mean to get all the Cash arising from the Lead & Silver sold & pay of all at Stanhope on my return home & destribute the remaining part of the Money among the Alston moor Workmen so far as it goes but it would be much better if you would please to give me Directions where to get the rest of the Money & pay all at the same Time as short payments  are very disagreeable & what the Workmen in this Manor have not been used to & I do assure you it gives me no small concern to see all Pays made & my Lords not. If you please to send me a line with directions as above so as it can be at NewCastle on the 31st Instant you may direct to me at Mr Charles Atkinson Mercht in the Side NewCastle upon Tyne.
