J.E. Blackett Esqr N.Castle 				Dukesf[iel]d 16th July 1780


Herewith you'll receive a Plate of Silver, Weighing 1153 Ounces, the Litharge was not all wrought up w[hi]ch prevented my sending the Acco'ts &c.

I have been among the Rookhope Wainmen last week and have got as many promised as will carry all the L[ea]d that's at that Mill so that I do not fear but we will get it all moved for I find they have carried above 12 Hundred p[iece]s this last week w[hi]ch is a great deal more then has been carried in a Week this Season; and I have not the least doubt but we shall send more this Week.

I'm Yrs &c I.H.
