To Jno Bacon Esq		Newcastle 15 May 1730

Sr, In answer to your Favour of the 13th, as soon as you are pleased to order down 334 ps Wessenhope Lead Ore & that Mr Dalton our Operator at Blaydon can make an assay of it you shall then know the Utmost wee can afford to give for it. I’m glad Wessonhop is likely to turn to Accot but as to Lead keeping up its price I doubt it, having too much reason to fear it will prove a falling Comodity. When the accot of the partnership mines are brot me in & you have a mind to make a pay I shall readily qualify Jos. Peart to attend you		I am	Sr & c 	JR
