Mr Morrow Blaydon

Dr Sir,

      I have examined the Accots since I rec.d  yours and find that Mr Salkeld had in the accot. given me omitted the delivery for one Month; so that the deliv. from this mill to & with this Day will be 28,176 Ps. The short 11st[one]  Ps : 15,872, the Long or Refined Lead 10,162 & 8 st All[anhea]ds Lead 2,142 Ps.   As the season is near an end would like to hear from you in a day or two’s time if the short Lead be got of the roads that we may be sending you of Sir Thos. Blackett’s, for I would like to send you 2 or 3 thousand Ps. of His Lead before the Carriage strike up if the Weather should prove favourable.
