       We have received your Letter of the 4th with the Estimate of the Old Materials but it only arrived yesterday morning 10th we are rather surprised at.   For the time to come we desire all your Letters may be sent by the Hexham Post Man that comes down the South side of Tyne. We intend paying the Money for the Materials when we make the Lead Mill & Stublick Colliery Pay & at the same time shd be glad to pay for the Chain Pump.  The taking of the Iron of the Old Gin is perfectly right.  The Bellows will come by Jn Corbett tomorrow.  They are 5 feet 8 inches long.  We shall be glad to hear how you get on in the working of Coal, from time to time & when you write we shd like to have your Letter & Mssrs Mulcasters Letter come together.       We are

       Your well wishers

      Walton & Turner
