Mr Dickinson Coalcleugh 				Dukesf[iel]d 20th July 1780

D'r S'r 

I find when at Allanheads Mill yesterday that there's already as much Ore at her as we ought to have, as w[it]h the Ton Tail that's expected; I therefor desire that you'll stop

any more of your Boose Ore being sent, and in case we can make Room at her the latter end of the Year if you are likely to have any dificulty of getting your Mines clear'd shall then take 

2 or 3 Hundred Bings but we have no pretence for over stocking her at this time 

I am &c Yrs I.H.        

The Carriers that carried to that Mill bring Ore to Dukesf[iel]d
