Rt Stagg Esqr - Agent to the Lead Co[mpan]y

Marton House – near Appleby. –

I think it right to intimate to you that some Difficulty is likely to arise in the treaty with Dr Phillpotts for his Tythe Ore – He has postponed communicating his intentions till last Thursday on the pretence of being from home and not having personal access to his Agent, who I now find is a Mr Dolphin – agent to Messrs Halls in the Derwent Mines thro’ this person he has intimated his desire to accept a Composition to be hereafter named; but as a preliminary to an Agreement being entered into, stipulates that the Ore raised by your Company is not to be included and for which a separate Agreement is to be made. – To this proposition I gave a decided refusal, on the ground, that as the Company were working under Col B[eaumon]ts Lease of the Weardale Mines no separate Agreement would be submitted to etc etc 

I am etc MM
