To    Mr Isaac Hunter at Dukesfield                            Newcas.    13 May 1770

Sir      Tho’ it may be an advantage to the Country to have the pay made before Stagshaw Bank fair as you propose yet I cannot agree to fix a day for the pay before I have the Acct. brought in and therefore desire you will not raise any expectation of a pay against that time.  Get the Accounts ready as soon as you can and then I will consider after I have looked over them when I can make the pay.

   We are loosing time in our Lead Carriage this year and I am afraid are doing so too in the Smeltings at Rookhope Mill.  I desire to have with all Expedition the Monthly Acct. of that Mill since Chrmas that I may know what has been done there.                     I am etc    HR
