To  Mr Isaac Hunter at Dukesfield                                         Newcas.   16 Febry   1770

Sir     I have received by the Carrier the piece of Silver from Dukesfield Refinery, which weighs Eight hundred & fifty nine ounces & and half.  & there is a little piece broken off that weighs  abo[u]t. an ounce, which I will give you when I see you; as I cannot safely send it to London as I intend to do the rest.  Pray what are the Mill Clerks about, that they have not yet sent me the months acct. for Decemr.?  I hope Mr Harrison has a good stock of Fuel at Rookhope Mill, that the ore which is now there & also what will be sent him before Midsummer may all be got smelted directly & sent away in good time for Blaydon

       I am etc                            HR
