To Mr Smeaton. Farnacres 21st September 1770 Dear Brother As it is almost Eight I have only time to inform you that the Silver is Safe arrived and that you will receive herewith the Copys of Case and Opinion and Letter to Mr Hunter about the perverse Behaviour of the Barr keeper indeed I think probably without directions from the [underlined: ‘Commissioners’]. I have given Mr Mulcaster full Orders respecting this matter and believe we shall not have much difficulty but there is no such thing as judging where we have a parcel of Moles to deal with. The Companys Mill Agents Salarys addition commanded at Mudsummer except one, this I had from Mr Tweedale, after asking it; at the same time I told him we had no right to ask what the advances were as I understood that was a thing which they chose to keep to themselves and certainly we had not the least right to expect an Answer if we made the request; he did not seem inclined I found if I had moved it to him what were the advances. I have been so hurried today that I have no doubt when I tell you so that you will excuse all the blunders etc and am Sir yours very sincerely Nich Walton Junr PS. Rampgill & Carr and the Cash Book We all join best respects.
