								Farnacres 19th July 1793

Mr Dickinson

       We have rec[eiv]ed yours of the 29th Ulto and the 10th and 13th Inst and hope every thing goes on well with the Lead Ore Carriage without obstruction.

       You may give leave to Thos Martindale and James Stephenson to make some trial of Fairhill

Flow Edge Vein on usual conditions.

       If Matt[he]w Blacklocks application had been to try for or have a Lease of Nentsberry Pasture Cross Vein, the Boundary ought to have extended Southward from the South side Boundary

of Nentsberry Haggs Vein; but as you express it, no Man can understand it, for you say, that, it is to be between the South Boundary of Nentsberry Haggs Vein and Nent River, which it is clear to me does not express any Boundary at all.

       We are sorry that Nent Force Level still continues to be so high; it is however hoped that you will soon cut a Valuable Vein to make up for all Expences and Inconveniences.

       We are so much engaged concerning the Divisions of the Commons, the Boundaries of which have been lately ridden, that we have not had time to consider of any thing further about the Road from Burtry ford to Alston etc, and the Hexhamshire and Allendale Division will occasion a further Delay as to that. The whole, however, shall be attended to, and Mr Walton, who will be at Alston some time early in the first whole week in August, will give you some further intimation respecting this Business.

       You may give Liberty to Wm Pearson & George Philipson to make some Trial of a Vein North of Farnbery North Vein upon usual Terms.

       The Mill Wright shall be seen concerning the Millstone Dust Hoop etc for Alston Mill. The Iron for  <Tampers> is ordered. We are		

       y[ou]rs etc	Walton & Turner

PS You will receive 600 Tickets for the Lead Ore Carriage some time this Week or next.
