	I have received by the Hexham Carrier two pieces of Silver Bullion from Dukesfield Refinery, one Weighing Six hundred & Sixty four Ounces & the other Seven hundred & forty Ounces & have given the Refinery Credit for the same.

	I wish you would make an Assay of the Slag Lead of Coalcleugh Ore - I do not suppose much is made by Refining it, & the mixing it with other refined Lead lowers the quality of it, & has occasioned some Complaints                             I am etc         HR
