Mr Dickinson

       I duly rec[eive]d yours of the 8th Inst and have the several necessary Papers and information about the Ore Carriers being obstructed now before <Currick>. It is certainly necessary for the Ore Carriers to be carefull and not to give any offence or have any quarrels with the Owners of the Tenements or their Lessees, and you and John Friend must endeavour to have them to conduct themselves as discreetly as possible as to that. 

       Last Monday I heard that Blagill Cross Vein had been cut 3ft 4 in wide good Bouse work. I desire youll let me know how that is. I am Y[ou]r h[um]ble serv[an]t

       Nich Walton Junr
