At a Meeting of the Directors of Greenwich Hospital, at that place, on Saturday 17th December 1768. The Board approved of the Recers. having, for the reasons they have given, erected a Cottage at Langley Mill with a Chamber over it for the Smelters to lodge in while they continue at Work, instead of the additional Peat House before Ordered. A Letter of the 1st instant from Mr Henry Errington was read inclosing a Proposal to take a Lease of the Smelting Mill & Lead Ore Dues for a number of Years, the price of those Dues to be governed by that of Lead at Newcastle; The Board did not think it would be adviseable to accept thereof; however they Ordered it to be referred to the Receivers for their consideration in case there should be any new matter which may induce them to be of a different Opinion since their Letter of 5th September last upon that Subject.
