Sir/ I am sorry to find, by Mr Salkeld’s acc[oun]t for August that only 762 p[iece]s of Lead are delivered fm Dukesfield mill. You know we wanted to have 5000 p[iece]s down to Blaydon before winter; & now, that we are likely to have a peace, we must have more if possible: Therefore I desire you will set on all the carr[ie]rs you can; only do not be too urgent with them lest you occasion a demand for more price but act with discression. P.S. Pray forw[a]rd the inclosed by a safe hand so that Mr Hunter may have it on Sunday night at furthest, for it relates to his being at Hexham on Monday. I am etc   HR
