Jno. E. Blackett Esq Newcastle


      Inclosed you have the Month Accots. for the several Mills and also the General Accots for ore which I forgot to take when I carried the Q[arterly] Accots.

      We have got forward pretty well for this some time past with smelting at all the mills – but this dry weather should continue any time will be a hinderance, particularly at Allanheads Mill; at the other two I hope we shall do nearly what we have done for these 2 months past – shall in a fortnights time send you a Plate of Silver and by that time expect to have all the mills cleared of Common Lead.

      I am with due deferance

      Dr Sr Yrs &c   IH:Jr
