Mr Morrow, Blaydon     				Dukesf[iel]d: 7th May 1779


D'r S'r

I hope you have been able to wate upon Mr Blackett at the time desired and that you'll get me a Tickett for the Rookhope Lead made ere long - as your Carriage f[ro]m the Bankf[oo]t starts on Monday have below given you the Names of those who signed the Article at Blaydon and I desire that you'll not allow any to carry of S'r Thos. Blackett's Lead f[ro]m thence but those mentioned below - shall in my next give you the heads of the Articles    

I am Yrs &c I.H.

NB there will come f[ro]m Rookhope this season Lead (8 stone p[iece]s) marked w[it]h an L (not joined to the WB as the other L Lead) which is made f[ro]m a different sort of Ore and ought to be kept separate; Mr Mulcaster I suppose will choose to work it bt it's self as it will not answ'r so well for so well for Litharge as the other Lead f[ro]m that Mill.

The Dukesfield Smelters and Carriers Project aimed to celebrate and discover the heritage of the Dukesfield Arches & lead carriers' routes between Blaydon and the lead mines of Allendale and Weardale. A two year community project, it was led by the Friends of the North Pennines in partnership with Hexhamshire and Slaley Parish Councils and the active support of Allendale Estates. It was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the generous support of other sponsors. Friends of the North Pennines: Charity No:1137467
