J.E. Blackett Esqr N[ew]Castle 				Dukesfield Augt 24th 1784


      The Miller at the Corn Mill here wants to sell Ale, I told him that I was sure you would not allow of it being so near the Smelt Mill I find by him that Mr Salkeld reather encourages him (who’s pub Tenant he is) and that he’s not willing to give it up without an order f[ro]m you, I therefor beg you’ll let Mr Peart acquaint my by l[ett]re of your disapprobation of it for I am sure that it will be a detrement to Sir Thos Blacketts Works here to have an Ale House so near that the Workmen can go to on the slightest occasins

      I am Y[ou]rs etc  IH
