Dr. Sir

The inclosed three letters on the subject of the Tyne IronCo. I have reced from Mr. Blackett to inclose for your approbation as the only Bill we hold of theirs, is the one for £1,500 which was left here by you some time ago.  The Tyne Iron Co. not being able to carry their former engagement into execution, it has been thought adviseable by many of the Creditors to agree to the proposals of Mr. Bulman, though less advantageous to them than the former ones

                     I remain Your Most Obed. Very HbleSer 

      Thomas Crawhall

Two of Bp. Durham's Agents were at this place yesterday, on the Inspection of Weardale Mine Accd. in compliance with the Order of Court for that purpose.  I am sorry I have it not in my power to say that Mr Blackett has yet made any further sales of lead.

Chas Bowns Esq
the letters referred to are those to Beaumont from Bolam on 3rd Oct and from Bulman on 3rd and 4th Oct
