The enclosed letter from Alderman Blackett was sent to me this morning & which is now forwarded for your information. The Alderman intends being at Harrogate in the course of the Present week. In my visit to the mines I found they were generally poorer than in the former quarter, altho not in any great degree, Sanguine hopes are entertained of a Vein out in Middlehope and a place called Hartleycleugh is expected to assist the produce of Coalcleugh Mines this year. The price of Lead I am happy to say is advancing and on Saturday last I demanded £25 per fo[dder] for 5,000 P[iece]s common of Messrs Walkers to which an answer is to be given on Thursday next by Post. 	I am Etc MM
