Thomas Temperley.                           					Farnacres 5 June 1781

       We have reced yours of this day wth the inclosed Accounts wch we shall examine the first Opportunity,   And with regard to James Johnsons Bill, think it necessary you should write to Thos Snowball & Ptners to know the real Quantity of what Wood was brought for Stublick House; we wish you at all times only to call it Stublick House but that the Colliery should be called Stublick Colliery neither High nor Low. The Price of the Wood should be settled at the Pay.  Your charging the Coals is certainly right.  We are glad to hear the Air Pit has been got down so readily.  We have no objection to your employing two more Men as you find it necessary.  We are sorry the Men meet with such hard Stone in the Level etc but hope that will be soon over.  When we are together at Hexham, it is hoped the Colliery etc Accounts may be still further improved, & we shall then settled what is necessary with respect to the paying of the Money to Mssrs Mulcaster.  With regard to the Lease, there seems to be some difficulty which we can scarce at present comprehend, however that will be best explained at meeting.  It is rather odd that we cannot have so trifling a Matter as a rotten Chain Pump & Old Chains valued without so much Fuss, but we shall get that Matter settled by Mr Thornton unless it shd prove far more difficult than we expect.             We are

       Your Humble Servts

      Walton & Turner
