D'r Sir

      I am sorry to find that my Letter on the 29th July in regard to the Ore f'm your Mines being sent to the Mills has had so little effect, for what's sending now to this Mill is very badly dressed and particularly what came this Week, I think Archers doubly to blame to suffer such Ore to be taken f'm the Mine when both you & your Son was f'm home; it plainly shows that the Masters interest he has not at hart. the produce of the Allenheads Ore rec[eive]d this year at the Ore Harth is greatly short of what it used to be & much short of the Ore f'm the Other Groves this Year that I have been able as yet to ascertain by finishing the Bingsteads; w[hi]ch I shall be obliged to acquaint Mr Blackett what I believe to be the cause; if you think proper you may let Mr Archer see this; I would not wish to make an attack on a Mans Caracter without giving him an oppertunity to defend it. shall we see you in Your Road to Newcastel; I purpose being at the Mills next Week if the weather permits may give you a call. Wife joins in Compl[imen]ts to you Mrs Foster and Young Folks with Dear Sir Yours Sincerley
