Mr Hunter							N.Castle 20th. Mar. 1802


Mr. I. Hunter

      I have received the Accounts of the Ore Carriage Pay from Allen & Allenheads Smelt Mills which are very distinct & regular, those from Dukesfield & Rookhope are much otherwise, so that the Quantity of Ore from each Mine, as well as the several prices, are not described, & the Ore Pay cannot be made till I have such Accounts sent me, which I expect may be done immediately, & that you will likewise make out & send me an Account of the Lead Carriage Pay from Dukesfield Smelt Mill as I am determined on that Pay being made very early the next Month. – Coln. & Mrs. Beaumont have taken Notice, that you do not send an Account of the State & Produce, with the Profit &c. of Dukesfield Smelt Mill & Refinery, as is done of the latter by Mr. Mulcaster: as the Mill & Mine Pays will be on the 26th, 27th, & 28th. of May, I shall expect to receive your Pay Bill & Account when you come down to this Place on the 3d. May.   

      I am &c. J.E.B.

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
