A Copy of a Letter sent Mr. Cleaver 				Alston 7th April 1777


I am very wishful to see you & Mr Gilbert here as soon as possible you can & I have this day wrote him to the same purport for unless some of the New Works be entered into several of the Leases will be forfeited but if you was here together may then do as you please only if they should be forfeited & afterwards turn out good I might be blamed. No alterations since I wrote you last we are now only about 3 or 4 fathoms of where the Old Man has had Greengill West End good and I was in hopes she would have turned out good before this time.
