To Mr Isaac Hunter at Dukesfield                                                          Newca[stle]  15 Sepr 1768


If you have not already got David Elliott over to view Westburnhope I wish you would do it as soon as you can and let Mr Bell know what his testimony amounts to – there were two or three more that were to be sought after vizt Jos Armstrong of Stobbilee, John Liddell some where near Hexham, Walter Elliott of Allanheads and John Green Brother of Thos Green Carrier.

I wish you wo[ul]d examine such of these as you can meet with and if you think it will be worth while take them to view the ground. As the Season draws near a Close I think you should be as alert as possible in getting the Lead down to Blaydon. I see there was a  great quantity at Dukesfield the last of Augst.

I hope Mrs Hunter is well & am etc    HR
