Rob Stagg Esq

I am favoured	 with your Letter of the 22d Inst and in replying to it have to confirm mine of the 8th Inst that I am desirous to receive the Comp[osition] <.. Prop[ortio]n> of dues for Ore raised in Weardale last year conformable to the Statement transmitted to you on the 20th March last; and certainly it is not my intention to charge Interest for the past; or for the future provided the estimated quantity paym[ent]s by the Company are, as the become due, regularly made. – If the quantity of Ore raised by you falls short this Year, I am certain the quantity we shall raise will in a greater proportion be less; and therefore in my Opinion £250 pQuar[te]r is a more equitable Sum than £200

to be paid by the Company. – Whatever you may on this point determine upon, I am at least to request you will not longer delay payment of the Companys proportion for last year. -- 	I am etc MM
