One Pair of Smelting Bellows Shipped on Board the Success Geo. Robinson Master for Newcastle 20th May 1775.

       Mark  W& S  To the care of Mr Airey of Newcastle 



       Messrs Walton & Smeaton's Compliments to Mr Airey, and send him the above to inform him of a pair of Bellows being Shipped for Langley Mill; which they desire he will be so obliging as make immediate enquiry about, and as soon as they arrive, to get them carefully put in to the Warehouse and dispatched by Corbett or Johnson, to the Mill, as soon afterwards as possible.  Mr Airey is desired to pay the Freight etc.

                                              				Farnacres 26 May 1775 


       Upon considering, Messrs W&S think it may be more convenient for the Bellows to remain in the Ship til the first Hexham Carrier Day after she gets in, as they will go immediately from the Ship to the Waggon.  The Bone Ashes now in the Warehouse it is desired may be sent by Corbett & Johnson the first opportunity equaly delivered to each.
