Jn Dickinson									Augt 7th 1832

	I am willing to contribute on behalf of Mr Beaumont the sum of Three Pounds towards the Wall Mr  Simpson wishes to be built, but in so doing, it must be understood, that I by no means undertake to make any Contribution to any future repairs. It is my intention that all Lead in future from all the Mills be brought to Blaydon & to discontinue the Newburn Establishment altogether __ you must therefore give directions to the Carriers & ticket your Lead accordingly. I consider the price paid to Newburn a sufficient price to deliver it at Blaydon, indeed the distance is much the same 

							Yours truly


P.S.  Have the goodness to apply to the undermentioned Carriers and Inform them that unless the Lead now in their hands be immediately delivered, say on or before the Inst from the they have to receive at the Pay Day

A two year community project, it was led by the Friends of the North Pennines in partnership with Hexhamshire and Slaley Parish Councils and the active support of Allendale Estates. It was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the generous support of other sponsors. Friends of the North Pennines: Charity No:1137467
