J.E.Blackett Esqr. Newcastle				Dukesf[iel]d 24th June 1781


I find by my Broth[e]r that there’s to be a meeting of the Trustees of the Toll

Road at Corbridge on Wednesday next to Confer w[i]th the Lead Owners & less on the Toll upon Lime & Coals – have measured what S[i]r Tho[ma]s B[lackett]’s Lead can go upon the Branch at the Lead Hall (to go by Apperley Lane) to 42 Y[ar]ds above a Q[uarte]r of a Mile, f[ro]m Stella- Path to the Yard at Blaydon (& Mr Mulcaster is Aud[ito]r) is ¾ of a Mile so that the whole that S[i]r Tho[ma]s’s Lead will go upon the Turn Pike at each end will be little above a Mile – as it may be inconvenient for you to attend at Corbridge, would it be improper if you ordered Mr Bell to attend?	I am yo[u]r Obliged & H[um]ble S[ervan]t
