Mr Morrow, Blaydon     			Dukesf[iel]d: 21st March 1779


D'r S'r

I beg (if you do not send the Tickets of the Receipt of Lead) that you'll let me know by a line of the Return of the Post if you have got all Dukesfield & Rookhope Mills 11 st.

Lead in that I may start the Carriage f[ro]m these Mills this fine season, for I told Mr Blackett when in Town last week that I should set on the Carriage this, as f[ro]m] what you told me when on the road there did expect to have had your acco'ts &c by yesterdays post. I heard (tho not from you) that there was 3 Foth[er]s of Rookhope 11 stone L[ea]d taken f[ro]m the Pit hill w[hi]ch I hope will will make the Lead from all the Mills right for last year.

The undertakers of the Rookhope Lead & you must make the best shifts you can to make out the acco'ts of that Mills Lead for I intend you no other acco't of the deliv[er]y f[ro]m the Mill than what you have (i.e) the Quantity of each sort of Lead.  I am Y`rs &c
