       I have not get examined the Operation for May but you will hear from me after I have examined it.

       Mr Wilkinson's Slag Lead is not Refineable but the Farnberry is very good the lesser Assay produces 10 [oz] 21 6/10 [grains] P Fodder and the bigger 13[oz] 2[dwt] 3 6/10[gr] P Fodder.

       I think from the trial you made of Washing Middle Cleugh and Rampgill Ore, it had been Washed at the Mines as well as we could expect such sort of Ore.      I am

       your very hble Servt

            	N W Junr
