To Mr John Ibbetson Esq					Farnacres 24th July 1772 


      Inclosed we send you the Lead Mill Account from the 6th April 1771 to the 25th April last upon which there is a Gain of £912.3.11.  You will be pleased to observe that on counting our Stock last year there appeared to be one piece more than by Account of Lead made at the Mill and therefore we concluded that as the piece could not be there unless it had been made at the Mill, it was accordingly given credit for on our Account but on delivering out the Lead to the Carriers we found we had one piece less than expected it is therefore evident that this difference has been occasioned by counting one piece more last year than there was which being taken into Account would occasion a deficiency of one piece this Year; this error being rectified in the present Account increases the Balance by £1 8 1/2d & diminishes the former Balance by a like Sum.    We also inclose you an Account showing the Quantity of Duty & Hush Ore raised in the Manor of Alston moor between Michs 1767(since when the Duty and Hush Ore has been Smelted at Langley Mill) and Michs 1771 distinguishing what part thereof has been delivered at Langley Mill and what remained at the Mines after the ending of last Years Carriage.  We are Sir

      Your most obed Servts

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
