Dukesf’d. 29th March 1777 J. E. Blackett Esq Newcastle By Mr Morrows of the 22nd inst I find that you want Refined Lead at Blaydon and as this time is the greatest throng in this neighbourhood of sowing their spring corn, am afraid that I can get you very little sent till that throng be over which I expect will be in a fortnights time if the weather prove anything tolerable – I can get none sent now without giving what they call the Winter Price & even then the Quantity will be so small (till the seed is got into the ground), that if you could possibly put off till after that time I think I could then send it briskly & at the Summer price. I am Yrs &c IH:Jr PS the great fall of snow yesterday will prevent any being sent for a Weeks time at any price.
