Ralph Dixon at the Lee					Dukesfield 22nd May 1781

I wrote two Months ago that if you did not go and Wash up the Black Slags that were stamp’d that I should emply some body else to wash them. I find when I was at the Mill yesterday that you have don little or nothing at them; I give you this second notice that if you do not go against Monday the 28th inst. and follow them (till what’s stamped be fit to smelt) that I shall look upon it as a quitting of the Work and shall let them to some other Perston [sic] that will do them as they ought and not inconvenience the Mill (as to room) and the Person that has the Stamping of then and also preventing getting that Lead to Markett this season
