To Messrs. Jona. & Jos. Hilton.              				Farnacres 8th March 1771

Mr Hiltons

      As I dont know how soon the Accts of Lead Ore delivered at Langley Mill last year may be wanted by the Commissioners of Greenwich Hospital I desire you will no longer delay sending it to me as the Michs. Accounts must certainly be finished now; if they are not I beg you will take every step in your power to get them finished & send them with the above amount of delivery as soon as you can. 

      The Devil has undoubtedly cast his Club over Hartside Colliery & I heartily wish we had never seen her.  Do as you propose at as little expence as possible.

      I am glad to hear by Mr Mulcaster that Mrs Joseph is gott better again, I hope you will be able to inform me in your next of all Friends being well.  I am Gents 

      Your Affect. Hble Servt

PS.  Joe will remember the Acct of delivery to Langley Mill must show the Dues of each Mine in Bouse & Cutting Ore.  The Delivery from each. Mine in Bouse & Cutting Ore ; and what is wanting from each Mine in Bouse & Cutting Ore for Dues in one year ending at Mich 1770.
