To Mr Chrisr. Bell 						Farnacres 1st June 1771

Mr Bell

      As you say there is no hazard in giving Geo. Johnson another year I desire youll allow him that time if it stil continues to appear to you in the same light.

      I have this day had one Jonathan Ryle with me who says he could engage to carry ab. 1500 pieces of Lead from Aydon or Corbridge to Newcastle and that he would allow 2s PFodder from Hexham to Aydon & 18d from Hexham to the Limekiln which joins the Turnpike Road a little on this side Corbridge. If you can assist him I beg youll not fail doing it and in case you think John Jobling can help him pray speak to him. I am

      Your Hble Servt

      NW Junr.

PS. Youll ask how many pieces Ryle expects shd be reckoned a Fodder and let me know after you have done the needful in this Affair to wch. I wish there may be great attention.
