Abstract: We consider an elliptic difference operator together with certain boundary difference operators near a plane portion of the boundary parallel to some coordinate direction. We prove discrete analogues of known estimates in $ {L_p}$ and Schauder norms for elliptic boundary problems. The discrete estimates are then used to prove results about convergence near plane portions of the boundary of difference quotients of solutions $ {u_h}$ of a discrete elliptic problem to the derivatives of the solution u of the corresponding continuous problem, when it is known that $ {u_h}$ converges to u in the maximum norm or in a discrete $ {L_p}$ norm as h tends to zero.
