J.E. Blackett esq.


      You’ll receive with this a Plate of Silver as per inclosed Accot. the Lead made from Low Coalcleugh Ore which yield the most silver. We have settled the Accots. with Allanheads & Coalcleugh Mines as to Sir John Trevelyan’s Ore sent to this mill and the delivery agrees with the rec.t at the Mill so has set on the carriers to bring in Sir Thos. Blackett’s ore. shall finish all Sir Jn’s Bouse Ore at this Mill against Tuesday next; the wastes that are ready to smelt will I think take till the 13th Sept. as they will run much slower than Bouse Ore – 

      Shall be glad to hear from you before then in regard to taking an Inventory of the Utensils &c. we were disappointed last Wednesday in the lawyers who I suppose would have fix’d what we should value as <personalty> 

      I am Yrs &c   IH:Jr
