To Mr Christr. Bell Farnacres 31st March 1771 Mr Bell I have looked into the Lead Carriers Accounts and find that John Corbett was paid 13 d P Piece for 18 pieces of Henry Arthurs the 23rd of March 1770 and at the same time Wm Addison was paid <13d> for 32 pieces. Henry Arthur said at Hexham when I was last there that he brought the 18 pieces to Hexham and that he carried the 32 from a little above Hexham to Newburn so he seems to be entituled as below. I desire youll get this matter settled if you can. I am Your Hble Servt N W Junr. From John Corbett 4d PPiece on 18 pieces £ 6 From Wm Addison 8d PPiece on 32 pieces this wd have 1 1 4 been 9d PPiece but there is a penny PPiece deducted. wch. was pd. Ions for waterage to Newcastle. 1.7.4 PS James Johnson wants 4d being a short casting in his Acct last settled at Hexham of which I desire youll inform him & pay him the 4d.
