A Copy of A Letter sent Chas Atkinson Esqr			Alston 28th Decr 1777


As I never had any particular Account about the Lead &ca since the 30th Jany 1775 I inclose you a Copy of the Account settled then, and desire you will as soon as possible let me have an Account of what has been done since then made out in the same way as the inclosed, that is, the Weight & Peice of the Lead with the Amount on one side and the Charges & Money paid on the other side, because till I receive it I cannot make out the Mill Accounts exactly; I also desire to know to whom the Cash has been paid at every separate payment, the Amount of Interest and every other Thing which you have paid on Lord Carlisles Account or on Mine. By one of the Accounts I have recd from you ending the 20th March 1777 It appears I have got £15459.2.8½. By the other ending the 9th Septr 1777 it appears to be £1915. And I want to have the particulars of these Two Sums, and also what has been paid since that; I hope you’ll let me have it as soon as possible as I cannot till then give Mr Gilbert so clear a state of the undertakings as he desires.
