	As the open Mines at Keswick are among others Lett to Collel Liddell and you mentioned that there was a person who pretended to have made a hopefull discovery.  I give you the trouble of this Letter desiring that you would acquaint the Man (I think you called him Hetherington) that if he will go to Whitehaven & to be free & open to Mr Hicks in declaring what he knows and makes it appear that he can be of Service he will meet with Suitable Encouragement.

	I have wrote to Mr Hicks upon this Subject, but it will be kind in you to take the trouble of writing a Letter along with the Man to him also & thereby you will oblige

      Yor very hble Servt      

      Rob  Ellison
