To Lancelot Allgood Esqr.                                Newcastle 27 March 1731


      I am D[ebto]r to the favour of your Lre of the 13th agreeable to which I sent Mr Denton a bill for One hundred pounds. On the otherside you have an account of the Lead mines & Refinery for the year 1730 in which year Weardale groves have turned to better acco[un]t than I ever knew them, but you will observe they are by much the most chargeable groves all the oar got there standing to about 35s a Bing, besides the Rents, which when added this brings the charge to 43s a bing before its lifted from the groves.

      I should be very glad to hear when wee may expect to see you here.

      Yesterday all the <Penrith> chaps were here to demand their money, tho I desired Mr Mowbray to prevent them till I had orders from you upon that affair, they threatened to proceed on Chancery but I am satisfied are notwithstanding their seeming displeasure very well pleas’d with the terms of the award & the prospect they have of getting their money   I am      JR
