Mr Morrow Blaydon

Dr Sir,

      We this day delivered 45 Ps of Lead marked H besides the W.B. from this mill which you’ll please to separate from the Common that it may be refined (if Mr Blackett thinks proper) for I have made an Assay of it & find it yields in Silver 5 oz-10dw-6g to the Ton – If we should get any more of that kind of ore shall shall [sic] put the same mark upon the Lead – give my Comp[limen]ts to Mr Robt. Mulcaster and acquaint him that I believe it will answer as well for Litharge as the X or Kilhope Lead

      &  am Yrs &c   IH:Jr
