Part of Mr Walton Junrs Letter of 23rd May 1770 to Mr Smeaton. I have agreed for a Lease of a Cellar or Warehouse in Sandgate for Fourteen Years and you are joint with me; we are to be free on twelve Months Notice. It is for lodging the Lead in and will I dare say hold any Quantity we shall ever have occasion to put into it. The Rent is £8.8 p Annum and a Person constantly on the Spot of whom it is taken will keep an Account of the Lead brought in by the Carriers from time to time for £10 p Annum each Party being free on Three Months Notice. The Carriages may go to the Cellar Door. Mr Peters has prepared a Draft and will have the Lease and Counterpart Engrossed very soon. We are to Pay that Expence. I have desired Mr Holmes to purchase a Beam for Weighing Lead as that we have is not a good one: it is to Weigh one Ton at each End and I have desired it to be plain and rather Stout for the Purpose.
