Inclosed you have my General Acco'ts  and also an acco't of the Lead Refined and reduced since Sir Thos. entered to the Refinery to the 31st of Dec'r 1778 as desired, I have put the quantity of Silver extracted in one line w[hi]ch was the produce of 6 plates as the Plates were mostly mixed w[it]h 11 & 8 stone p[iece]s of Lead. I have sent you the General Acco't according to the quart[erl]y Acco't w[i]thout rectifying the mistakes you'll let me know after you have rectifyed the Acco't in what manner you do it & whether there's any other in the Acco't then there's named that I may bring one with me clear of errors - I was not a little disappointed yesterday in not getting an Acco't as you promised of the pay being fixed - I wish Mr Blackett would fix it in a Post or two's time (tho it should be at a little distance) as it would stop the Clamour  in the Country w[hi]ch increases daily. I'm yrs &c
