To Mr I Hunter at Dukesfield                                                    Newcastle 24th September 1762

Sir/ As to advancing the price of Carriage oar fm Weardale mines to Dukesfield 8d p[er] Bing, I have no objection to it, if it cant be got under, & you are sure the Lead will come as cheap to Blaydon after that advance as it wo[ul]d if the ore was smelted at Rookhope mill, but as you must now calculate the Carriage of Lead fm Rookhope at 8s.4d only, p[er] ten pieces, that being the price we reduced it to this year I think you will find it will not answer. I am etc   HR
