Sir              I have sent you herewith a parcel of Lead Ore which has been got near Wallington & which I would gladly have assayed before Wednesday next. The ore is unwashed, so that it will not easily be fluxed; but the people at Wallington are young miners & think they have done enough in sending it as you see it.

Pray let me know from time to time how you get forward in making Litharge. I am etc H R
