Mr: Hilton

      As it will be attended with the greatest Inconvenience to us if Joe does not come here on Sunday we must beg of you to take care and see that he sets forward on Sunday Morning so as to be here in good time the same Day.   Pray has any thing been done at Clargill Cleugh Colliery since we were at Hexham & settled the laying out of Ten Pounds?   

      We are Your &c

      W. & T.

PS.  We inclose you an Accot. of the Arrears of ancient &c. Rents amongst which you’ll observe 1 ½ for a new Incroachment at Blagill.

 	This Charge of 1 ½ was made from the Survey of Mr. Joe Hilton &c. and he will find it so reported by himself if he will examine the Book of Reference and Plan in which Blagill Tenement is set down
