Mr Mulcaster Blaydon Dukesf[iel]d 8th June 1780 Sir Shall make you sure of the quantity of Com[m]on Lead that you name in yours of the 6 inst being at the Bankfoot against the last of this month if you do not want of the Long or Refined Lead in the time for I understood by you that you would want of that Lead 1800 p[iece]s to make up a former Bargain. you'll give me a line if you should want of the L[ea]d as I shall continue deliv[er]y Com[m]on till I hear f[ro]m you will not be able to send 400 p[iece]s of Slag Lead against the time you name as we cannot build anything from the other Mills sending Slag Lead to Blaydon by the last of the Month for the Fells are so wet that the Carriage is heardly begon f[ro]m them. You have in your late Letters laid a great stress upon Pringle's not getting his Winter Lead in; the blam will fall upon me, for he has s[o] far fulfilled his agreement that I made w[it]h him in not letting the Refinery want Lead, and I flatter myself that when Mr Blackett & you are made acquainted w[it]h the circumstances &c when I made the Agreement that you will both think as I then did; however, this I am sure off that, there would have been above 3000 p[iece]s more 8 stone Lead at Rookhope Mill this Day w[hi]ch Your Refinery must have found the want of last Spring. Would with pleasure acknowledge any hint or information towards any improvements in the Business f[ro]m you or any other Person, but would not willingly have the agreements I had made set <aside> Yrs &c I.H.
