I am in hopes that we shall this year get the Road cleared of the Lead and that the Deliv[er]y at the Mills will agree (nearly) w[i]th the Rec[eip]t at Blaydon; the last Acco[un]t I had f[ro]m Mr Emerson there wanted 32 p[iece]s of D[ukes]f[iel]d 252 of the Rookhope, and Allanh[ea]ds all in. Mr Smith tells me that he has made out the Rookhope & that the Carriagemen promised to have it to Blaydon in the course of a last Week and the Dukesfield Lead wanting Mr J[ame]s Hall tells me will be all th got in tomorrow so that I expect to hear f[ro]m Mr Emerson as the Carriagemen will be looking for their Pay once its all got to Blaydon. The Lead Carriage f[ro]m the Bankfoot by Mr Hall’s Acco[un]t of the quantity rec[eive]d of the Rookhope will amount to Eight Hundred & Fifty exclusive of the Back Carriage but I have wrote t B. that <….> Acco[un]t of the Charge may be sent you once its finilly settled.
