Last week I shipped the Chariot in the Amity of Whitby Thos. Simpson Ma[ste]r, your Velvet coat is in the Chariot Box, & the Key of the box is in the Chariot Bag, in the same Ship is a pott directed for you containing two black Cocks, if he demand above a guinea, please to let him be referred down here for paym[en]t. On Thursday last I was among the Tenants the first time for their Martinmas Rent, & got no more than £157 among them all, if the Marketts advance not quickly, all the weak ones must inevitably break of which there are too many in Wallington Lords[hi]p. Hall that farmed Harwod is broke, but the rent is all secured & the Farm let to one of the same name in good circumstances. Lead is at present in no demand, & wee have but little at market, the ways being yet not quite passable, I was told yesterday that a new discovery was made at Moohope, for in bringing up the Levels from the Burne they have discovered a Main Vein, so that it is only a string they have hitherto been working in; I have rece[ive]d no Acco[un]t hereof yet from Mr. Armstrong so must refer to my <next> for a more perfect Acco[un]t hereof. I am etc J.R.
