To Mr Wm Corbett Esq.


	We reced. yours  with the Boards Minutes of the 16 Aug last which we duly observe & beg you will please to rectify the Minutes relating the Balance of our bank acct. as the £20 3/4d is in our favour & not remaining in our hands.

	As to the proposal which you have reced. from John Lowther Esq. for making a trial for Lead ore to the south of Redgroves Edge we can see no objection, provided you make the common provision that it does not in its limits extend to or Interfere with any former Grant, for as the Profits which may arise to the Hospital from their mines in General, depend pretty much upon the number of Tryalls, it is most certainly right to encourage every Proposal at the best Duty. There is no objection to the joyning it to the other tack Note, and as it will save some expence both to the Hospital & the adventurer, we beg leave to advise its being so.

	We have wrote to the late Rece[iver]s for the leases of Dilston nd Lorbottle Tyths, but have not yet Rece[ive]d their answers, as soon as we doe you shall be acquainted therewith by 

      Sir Yours &c

      Walton & Boag
