Honest mr Mowbray	

      I am very much obliged to you for the favour of your letter of the  th and I have so great an opinion of your honesty that I am willing to refer the leting of followfields lead mines locly to you self, so what bargain or agreemt you make with the undertakers shall perform, so pray <acq> the partners that you have prevailed wi<th> me to take a 7th in lead at Newcastle

      There ought to be a Clause in the lease to oblige them to keep the level in repair, as also to keep such a numbr of men every day at work as you shall thinke conveneient, and what Oar and Slag’s is above ground to be made into lead and laid aside before the commencemt of the lease

	I belive there is not much of either oar or Slags above ground so when this comes to your hand pray give a line to your obliged friend and Servt 

      E Blacket

To mr George Mowbray at allenheads to be Left at mr Dixan’s in Hexham Northumberland
