To Mr Isaac Hunter at Dukesfield                                   Newcas[tle] 6th Septem[be]r 1766            

Sir          Thomas Lee, joiner in Hexham, wants thirty pieces of refined lead for the covering the shambles he is building there for Sir W[alte]r; so I have by this Post sent Mr Bell an order, to be given Mr Lee, and you will deliver him so many pieces on his producing it, and order Mr Salkeld to weigh the lead and give Mr Lee a note of it, and send me another by the first opportunity.

I do not expect Mr Gofton will order his tenant to stop up the leadway; but if it should be done you must remove the obstruction according to the directions given you by my Brother; and if any thing arises upon it that you want further advice in you can come hither for it. I am etc. HR
