Finlay Hodgson & Co							Apl 7th 1833


	I have your letters of the 1st & 4th inst and have forwarded my Monthly Cash Acct  under cover to Mr Bt together with the Stockton list. As soon as our Pays are over you shall you shall have an Acct of the Ore raised last year which falls about 2000 Bings short of the former year. We credit the London Works One thousand p[oun]ds paid the Bishop of Durham and Two Thousand p[oun]ds paid Glyn & Co

      The Fallowfield com. Lead is considered about equal to ours.

P.S. When you see Donkin please to remind him of the attempt made to charge the Weardale Mines with purpose. He may think it necessary to foster  an opinion upon it which he may have an opportunity of doing while in London. Something to be determined upon as to the renewal of the life.   

Gibbons & Co have not accepted my offer of 300 Casks of Litharge. I therefore stand firm at £14-10- Monthly Cash Act sent under cover to (TWht ) this day.

A two year community project, it was led by the Friends of the North Pennines in partnership with Hexhamshire and Slaley Parish Councils and the active support of Allendale Estates. It was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the generous support of other sponsors. Friends of the North Pennines: Charity No:1137467
