Sir      I have received by the Hexham Carrier the box Containing the two pieces of Silver from Dukesfield refinery.  The Weight of one piece is five hundred & thirty eight Ounces & the other Seven hundred & fifty Ounces & a half.     The Killhope Lead will not bear refining at the price which Lead is now sold at  -  so you may send it or Comon just as you please with respect to that Consideration:  except the price should fall  -  the possibility of which is the only thing that makes it better to send the Kilhope Lead than the other.                   I am etc    HR
