Ravensworth Castle 15 December 1738 Mr Rutherford We desire that you will enquire of some of the oldest and most judicious men in and about Scremmerston at what time and by what means or accident Scremmerston Colliery was first sett on Fire and how long it is since and lett us know by the return of the post or as soon as you can. Pray be very particular. If your men should want work for some time the Colliery must be Saved from Burning if possible, so we hope you have used the means we approve of for that purpose w are Sir your Hble Servts NW. H:B.
