Part of Messrs Walton & Smeatons Letter of 4th Novemr, 1770 to Mr Chr Bell

      Upon looking over the Lead Carriers Accounts we find James Johnson is paid 10s too much and Wm Pattison 10s too little being only mistakes in the casting up of their Accounts. It will oblige us if you will take the first opportunity of acquainting those Carriers with the above mistakes and that we shall expect to have them rectified at the next Pay or sooner as shall be found most convenient.
