of Steel got for Deanraw Colliery be so good as take care of the Materials. – Also two Kibbles & the Corves.

      There are no Rects. For Ann Browns Carriage of the Coals &c. from Deanraw to Langley Mill which there shd. have been to the Amount of £1:15:10. & therefore instead of being indebted to you £21:9:1 on Accot. of this Colliery it will be so much less as is equal to her Charge.

      You have sent two Rects.
