To Mr Hunter			Newcastle 3 Augt 1730

Sr, I received yours, with your Book pr Jonathan, the Book I shall return you by him on Wednesday & earnestly desire of you to make up the Lead carriage for the last year in 10 days time and then either to return me the Book or the accounts drawn out & totalled for Mr Blackett requires an Accot of the Lead Mines for 1729 wch I am ashamed I am not qualified to draw them out for want of the Mill Accot. I cannot conceived where the difficulty lays in settling the Lead carriage, you have all Robinsons tickets, & you must know what has been sent from the milns between Xmas 1728 & 1729, the Carriage of the yrs Lead is so essentiall a part of the Accots is not to be omitted now & bro[ugh]t in afterwards for by that method it will be impossible ever to know what wee are adoing, If you have a mind to have Hutchinson up to draw up the Accot &c I’l imediately sned him up on notice & will much rather pay him than allow it to be said wee cant yet get our Accots made up for the last Year when half of the next is expired.	I am	Sr &c	JR
