Sir      I hope this Dry Weather will enable you to deliver some Lead from Dukesfield Mill.  as soon as it is practicable I would have you deliver first  1000 pieces of Kilhope Ore Lead, then 1000 p[iece]s Allanheads, & then 1000 p[iece]s refined Lead  -  & you will let 1/10 th  part of the first two thousand  p[iece]s  be Slag.   I desire to have your pay as soon as you can & that you will let me know how much you think it will amount to.  PS. You see there is An Advertisement desiring the proprietors will not pay their proportions of the Charge made by the Com[issione]rs of Bulbeck Division, Such a Notice puzzles me to know what to do  -  I think I had better  postpone paying Sr Wrss Share a little while till I see further.  Or can get his own direction about it; & this you may tell Mr Marriott.                   I am etc    HR
