To Mr Newham Nicholson. Hexham 22nd October 1770 Mr Nicholson As we propose making the Lead Mill Pay upon Monday and Tuesday the 29th and 30th of this Month we must desire you will be so obliging as not to fail sending us an Amount of what Lead has been delivered at Newcastle since 23rd March last and by whom and this you will do by the Post of Sunday first. If the Carriers should deliver any Lead on Monday the 29th you will give us an Account thereof by Corbett or any of the Hexham Carriers that come to Newcastle that day and if by any accident the Carriers should go from Newcastle before you have an opportunity of delivering this last mentioned Account a Messenger sent to Denton Burn on Monday Evening will find the Carriers at that place. You mentioned to Mr Walton that some Pigs appeared to be Short when the Warehouse was last overhauled; if you have reason to Suspect any Carrier or Carriers of reporting more than they realy delivered, you are desired to inform us thereof together with the grounds for such Suspicion. We are Your Hble Servts Nich. Walton Junr & J Smeaton PS. The Bone Ashes should be sent up to the Mill immediately if they are not already come away.
