Mr Tristram Everest						Farnacres 28 February 1793

Dear Sir

       I yesterday attended a Meeting at Lanchester when it appeared perfectly clear to be the intention of most of the Gentlemen present to fix side Gates in every part of Alston Moor where the Lead Ore Carriers could be taken in and upon my strenuously adhering to the sentiments expressed to you in full the Gent[leme]n came to a resolution not to carry the Road further than to Burtry Ford and most of those present signed it. As the Road is to be extended to Burtryford I think it would be improper for Greenwich Hospital to stir further in the business at present. I am

       Dear Sir	 Your most H[um]ble Serv[an]t

       Nich Walton Junr

PS you are desired to return the Plan of Alston Moor and to enter it at £21.10 valued
