To the Revd. Mr. Cleaver 					Alstone 14th Decr. 1784

Yours I rec’d & have paid Paul Readshaw £2.2 on Acct of the Horse. When with you at Allendale Town I informed you it would be at or near Ladyday before we could possibly get into the vein in the G. Limestone at Greengill, but I am in Hopes as we are very successful, to give you earlier Intelligence. Nothing otherwise material concerning the Leadmine has transpired. I would have answered your last week had there been any probability of a Conveyance, but the Storm of Snow & Quantity on the Ground entirely stopt all communication with this part.
