	I am sorry to find Mr Silvertop still keeps Possession of part of the Ground allotted Sir Walter from Bulbeck Common & intends as you say in your Letter of the 3d. Septr. last to inclose the other part with a Stone Wall - if he does so you will let me know - He Presumes as many others have done on Sr. Wsr. backwardness to Engage in Law Suits - but he may be sure that no Matter of right will be totally relinquished tho’ its value be small - so I desire you will keep your Eye upon his Proceedings about Crook oak Allotment.

	As to your last Letter, about the Refineable Slag Lead, I would have it wrought by itself & marked S.  & no more Eight Stone pieces of Slag Lead sent to Blaydon.     I am etc   HR

p.s.  You may continue to deliver Dukesfield Lead while the Season will allow
