Mr R. Morrow Blaydon					Dukesfd. 11th. July 1778

Dr. Sir

      My not hearing f’m you today makes me thus remind you of the Accots. of the rects. of Rookhope Lead for these two years past wch you promised I should have this week when with you at N.Castle, for I cannot pay the Carriagemen wthout it, and you should before this let us know who to lay the Ld. wanting upon, for I’m afraid that the quantity will be so great that there will be some difficulty to get it all paid for. I have re-examined the Mills Accots. of the delivy and find them the same as formerly given you (viz)

      A copy of the Delvy fm each Mill for 1776 & 1777 wth his rect.

so that the want will soley ly on Rookhope, by the above accots. wch I make no doubt but are right, tho I recolect you saying you had recd. more f’m Allanhds then was delivd f’m her by her own Accot. wch might by mistake been placed to her instead of Rookhope, but if one had your Accots. or if you had taken a little pains to have compared your Accot., wth that Mill’s (Rookhope) particular Accot. of delivy, and where they differed, to have reckon’d wth the Carriagemen have not the least doubt, but you might long ere this have had all Sr. John’s Lead at Blaydon or at least known who were to pay for whats wanting; wch must be the case at Last. We have sent f’m this Mill of Slag & refined Lead this week of each 250 ps wch I hope will inable you to supply Dr Hall, wch I learn’d by Mr Mulcaster that these to were wanting to compleat his order. Yrs &c IH Jr
