J. E. Blackett Esqr Newcastle 				Dukesfield 18th Aug't 1792


      The inclosed copy of the Resolutions will inform you of the result of the Wolsingham meeting, those that attended thought it very reasonable that there should be a clause in the Act to prevent any side Barrs being placed to the prejudice of the Ore & Lead Carriage & that the places for the Tole-Bars should be marked  upon the plan by the Committee for the approbation of the Next Meeting. Mr. Dodd the Lead Co's Agent attended upon the same principal that Mr Emerson & me, and he told me, that the Co would subscribe very handsomely to the Road in case that there were no advantag taken of the Ore by placing side Bars 

      I am     Sir   yrs &c  IH
