To Mr Allgood 		Newcastle 5 May 1730

Sr, Alderman Ridley is desirous of letting us have his Little Gill Oar & to be paid in Lead, If you approve of it, please to Order Mr Hunter to conferr with Jno Vickars about it, & if they can with convenience smelt it separately at Allenheads Miln then to report to you their Opinion of that Oar and how much of it will make a Fother of Lead, As there is little probability of Mr Weatherley’s going forwards in Rookhope & thereby laying off that Miln I am of Opinion that Allenheads Miln may be at Leasure to smelt more Oar than wee shall have Occasion to send to her from our own groves, & it will not be much out of Robt Armstrongs way to take care the Oar be sufficiently washed before the Carriers take up. I believe the Aldmn would be glad of 55s a bing & if less then 5 bings will make a Fothr of Lead as I’m informed it will I take it will turn to Advantage while Lead continues at the present price. I desire you’l please to qualify me to return him an answr in ten Days 	& am &c	JR
