J.E.Blackett Esq, Newcastle				Dukesf[iel]d: 8th May 1779


D'r S'r

By Mondays Carrier you'll receive a Plate of Silver as per inclosed acco't have also

inclosed you the Pay Bill for the Lead Carriage f[ro]m the Bankfoot to Blaydon. Mr Morrow was confined to his Bed when I got there, but I hope he's been so well since as to wate upon you. I agreed with the East hand Carriagemen on the Pay day so that I hope the Lead will be got of the Roads in good time this Year. The Ore & Lead Carriage has been very brisk for this Month past tho I doubt the change among the Hospitals Tenants will slaken the Ore Carriage for a while

Im Yrs &c I.H. jr
