1777 to 1791 incl[ose]d: Allenheads  Land Accounts &c

Mr Foster recommends to have a Kay [quay] for Gunpowder (to be got from London) at Blaydon &dd [delivered] by Mr Mulcaster to the Miners – thinks it wo[ul]d save 15s p[er] Barrel

The candles we got from <straker & [co]> are bad.

Pringles not proper to be Carriers - the Carriage ought to be Let

Hunter & the Mill Cl[er]ks also Carriers
These are rough notes scribbled onto the back of summary accounts and from the date assigned to the accounts mentioned could have been taken by Mark Skelton perhaps on being sent to Newcastle for an early inspection of the northern estates inherited by Col Beaumont and Diana from her father in July of that year. The accounts were presumably presented to him by those he met on his journey
