Mr Morrow Blaydon						Dukesfd. 12th. May 1778

Dr. Sir

      I was in hopes ere this of haveing from you that all Sir John Trevelyan’s Lead was got to Blaydon, I have in the course of these few days seen several of the Wainmen that got of His Lead this Spring and they all tell me that they have carryed it all in. I do suppose fm my not hearing fm you that there’s some of it on the roads yet, therefor beg you’ll send me an Accot. on the rect. of this wth the quantity that’s short, and also what you have recd from each Wainman this spring (that I may be able to find where the blam lies) both of the 11 F 8 Stone Lead as there’s a deal of each sort taken fm the Mill by different People then in the Accot. that you have fm Mr Smith.

      I shall in my next give you the names of those who sign’d the Agreement for this Years Carriage last Tuesday and desires that none may carry but what was spook of that day. I am afraid you did not collect last Tuesday what was due fm them for the repair of the Lane. I have examined the Accots. as to Cuth Nixon’s 14s/6d for Apperley Lane and find that it was charged to your Accot. wht you would get Cr. for as rent by Mr Blackett I imagine in your last rental – but that you may be perfectly sensible of it have below given you a copy of your Accot. I am

      Yrs &c IH Jr
