      Rav. Castle Novemb 14th. 1738

To Messrs Rutherford Gibson & Redpath at Scremerston


	We have Considered the Affaire ab[ou]t Scremerston Colliery & that the best & Surest way to Extinguish the Fire is to open a Stapple upon Berwick Levell where there is Close Drift & Dam it up with wood & drown both Collierys for some time. We hope that the Mayor of Berwick will not be against this as Berwick Colliery is on fire also.

	We desire you will lose no time in getting this done as you said you can worke none till the fire is Extinguished your Complyance with this will Ingage us  to Recommend you as Sufferers to the Com[missione]rs. We are  Gentlemen   Your most Hmble Servts

      Nich. Walton

      Hugh Boag
