Sir Edward Blackett presents his Compliments to the Gentlemen who met at Mr. Loftus’s on the 9th. of January 1773 In regard to Fallowfield Lead Mine. He finds that the Lease of the Grove does not Expire till the Year 1782. He cannot wish to have the present Lease cancelled, & to grant another of 21 Years; as he apprehends a very few Years will be sufficient to make any Tryal they can wish to make As to the proposal of taking down the fire Engine & selling the Materials thereof, he hopes they will excuse him, If he cannot consent to it; but will concur with them, In building any Water Engine they shall think proper Upper Brook Street 24th. April 1773.
The ‘gentlemen’ are not named but it is clear from elsewhere that they were Teasdale Mowbray, John Cookson and Nicholas Lee, lessees of the mine. See the note of the meeting dated 9th Jan 1773.
