To Mr. Joseph Hilton. Farnacres. 4th July 1768 Mr. Hilton I desire to hear from you about the Carriers the latter end of this Week without fail, with your Opinion whether we shall get forward without giving the prices Asked; if you are of Opinion we shall not get forward so well as we ought to without giving the additional Prices 6s and 6s6d. I think the sooner we give them the better, and in such case I would have you and Mr. Mulcaster immediately give it out that those will be the prices we shall pay; but this is not to be done of you see there is a probability of the Carriers moving for a less price and perhaps 5s9d and 6s9d might please them. I am Your Hble Servt & Affect Fr. N Walton Jun P.S. I find Brown and Robson are intending to carry at our Prices which may be the Occasion of others doing the same. I would have Peter Mulcaster send to Hexham on Monday Morning, as I shall write again on Sunday and give my Sentiments to him and you in a joint Letter after I receive yours, which I desire may be sent to the care of Mr. Bell so that it may come to Newcastle by Hexham Post on Sunday.
