To Mr Isaac Hunter jun[io]r at                                 Newcastle 3rd March 1765


Sir       Inclosed herewith you receive Mr Reynaldson’s ticket for the Dukesfield and Allanheads Lead received at Blaydon to this day. And now I should be glad to have your opinion how we are to get a pay made to 31 Decem[be]r last. Whether we should we wait till the Rookhope Lead at Joblings yard and at Hedley is all brought in or make the pay without those that have used Joblings Yard: I could wish to have the pay made as soon as possible; but you will consider as I said in my last whether we can safely deliver any more Lead from Rookhope Mill till the last year’s Lead is brought in. If we cannot, then the making the pay before that is done will be of no advantage to Sir Walter, except the making an example of those who have used Jobling’s Yard for the Rookhope Lead. But as this may create a clamour, there having been great quantities brought thither and if not being easy to ascertain whose lead is brought to Blaydon and whose not, it deserves mature consideration whether to begin to reckon now, or no; I shall be glad of your opinion. I am etc H R
