Mongewell Jan: 18th 1798 Mowbray, Ignorant of every circumstance relating to Collieries I can form no guess what proportion boring bears to the other expenses which the proprietor of the Colliery has to defray before he lets it, of this therefore I must be previously informed; as well as whether the communication with the river Blythe is secured by a way leave, and, whether, on the boring’s turning out advantageously, there is a fair prospect of any responsible person’s undertaking to work the Colliery. I incline to think with Buddle, that if you can improve your report by conducting it on a better plan than that of the Agricultural Society, their premium will not be an object sufficient to confine you to it. By this post I sent directions to Messrs. Drummonds to answer your Draught for £100.4.1. the amount of the balance £10.14.1, Bramwell’s bill £51.19.0. & Froggitt’s bill £29.10.11. I hope this days business at Wolsingham will be satisfactory. & am, &tc S.D. I purpose being in London on the 31. Inst. A.Mowbray Esqre.
