To Mr Hunter at Dukesfield                                                              27 April 1762

Sir / I have recd a very pressing Lre fm Mr Frans Salkeld for leave to keep a publick house wch I wond[e]r at, as the matter has been talk’d over & over again, & always objected to, because, tho’ at present it might be a trifling advantage to him, it wo[ul]d in a little time occasion complaints against him, & I’m sure wo[ul]d be a disadvantage to Sr W[alte]r , therefore I desire you will tell him, I shall not take upon me to agree to it, if Jack Harrison sells ale to the smelters & oar carr[ie]rs it is more than I know, if he does it is wrong, but his salary is £10 a yr less than Mr Salkelds. My comp[limen]ts to Mrs Hunter. I am etc   JR
