I desire you will send a person on purpose to Allanheads with the inclosed Letter, and that you will let me know when you have done so.

As the Kilhope Ore it must be got away, and if you cannot get it to Dukesfield, it must go, (I mean what there is of it more than about 1200 bings) to Rookhope Mill. to be sure if the Quakers Co have advanced their price people will give them the preference; and there is no help for it, but our giving as much as them; but this I must leave to your Discretion who know all Circumstances and can judge better than I can how to proportion the Advance. You will let me know what you find necessary in this Matter. P.S. I hope the Allanheads Lead is coming from the Mill briskly - & what you get away will I hope be forwarded to Blaydon directly and not lye in the Way all the Winter. I am etc    HR
