Mr Thos. Maughan N.House 				Dukesf[iel]d 3rd Nov'r 80

D'r S'r   

Yours of the 30th Ult I rec'd yesterday and am sorry to find by it that you will have so much Ore to lye over Winter at the Mines for it's too late now to make any proposals to the Carriers that can answ[e]r any good end - it has been a complaint for these some Summers past that there was nothing for any but the Wood-carriers during the Prime of the Season. 

However shall do what I can (consistently w[i]th the future Carriage) to get a part moved if the Weather be any way tolerable; and shall take care to regulate the Ore Carriage f[ro]m your Groves against next year as I hope will prevent the Ore thats dress'd up before Michaelmas f[ro]m lying at the Mine.  I am

Yrs &c  I.H.
