Geo. Brooks Esqr . under Cover Newcastle April. 15th. 1787 to Richd. Master Esqr. Banker MP. Chancery Lane. - London Sir I wrote to you the 21st Ulto. to wch. I refer you. The separating the Lot Ore & Tithe Ore of the Weardale Lead Mines, being attended with considerable delay I am empowered by Sir Thos. Blackett to make the Lord Bp. of Durham an Offer of £500 P Year as a Composition for his Lot Ore, the present high Price of Lead enables him to make his Lordship this offer, rather than any improvement in those Mines, for there is only one Grove that may be said to be good, & the uncertainty of its continuing so is great; the price of Lead must drop. When you have acquainted the Bp. of Durham with this Offer, the favour of your Answer will Oblige. . Yours etc J. E. B.
