Mr Dickinson 							Farnacres 29th July 1793

       I have rec[eive]d your Letter of the 27th and will bring you £20 when I come to Lowbyer.

From what follows you will see it to be impossible for me to stay much in Alston Moor, in August.

Wednesday 7th Attend Mr Beaumonts beginning to Ride his Boundary and 

               get to Lowbyer in the Evening

          8   Attend Mr Beaumonts Bounder Riding from Kilhope Cross 

               to Hardrigend Currock & Attend Mr Beaumonts Bounder 

               Riding from the Cupola Bank to Nubbuck Hall Hill

          9   Return to Lowbyer in the Evening

         10   Meeting about the Roads & get to Langley Mill. I shall 

               be glad to have some conversation with Mr Dodd and Mr 

               Hodgson before the Meeting

       There will only be Mr Hailes with me & how many will dine on the 10th I cannot say. I shall dine and expect you and John Friend will also dine. Thomas Hailes will also dine. You had but endeavour to find out who else will dine. I shall pay for you and John Friend and for Mr Hailes & myself but no more & the Company will of course treat Mr Hunter if we sh[oul]d approve of him as a proper person to be recommended a Clerk and I hope that will be done. Mr Addison will I flatter myself meet with the approbation of the subscribers as a proper person to be employed as

<a visitor> & I have desired him to attend

        I am y[ou]r h[um]ble serv[an]t

       Nich Walton Junr
recipient unclear but appears from context to be John, the Hospitals’ mines agent at Lowbyer
