To Messrs Henry & Jona. Airey

Dear Sirs

      On examining the Account last settled for Lead I find there is a mistake.  The 28 May Ra Carr Esqr. had 14 pieces of Lead delivered him at £14-10 PFodder which comes to £14-11-8 1/2

In the Account last settled you only have it £14.1.8 ½ Balance due to Walton & Smeaton 10s

      We are Dr Sirs Your most hble Servts

      W & S

      Farnacres 6th October 1772

A two year community project, it was led by the Friends of the North Pennines in partnership with Hexhamshire and Slaley Parish Councils and the active support of Allendale Estates. It was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the generous support of other sponsors. Friends of the North Pennines: Charity No:1137467
