Sr, I have recd your Acct for the Month of May from wch I note only 30 ps of lead sent from the mill, pray is not the way yet passable or what is the Reason the Carriage is not set on at this Leasure time when people have nothing else to do. I recommend it to you to hasten away all the Lead to Markett without loss of time before harvest comes on, & if there is any thing that prevents the Carryers setting on, immediately apply to Mr Hunter to remove the Obstruction, for if we get not the Lead to Markett while the Demand continues you may as well keep it till another year. By your smelting I am affraid you want water, pray cannot you keep your Slags nearer for I find they increase upon you considerably, I am 	&c	JR
though placement & content suggests June
