	I received yours & gave Mess. Walker’s Fishwick &C. the order also acquainted Mr. C. Blackett of the same.  W. Hewitson is out of Town but shall acquaint him at his return.  Mr Bell the surveyor called at the Office yesterday, wanting a Plan that he made of Harehope Gill Leadmine, which he says, would be particularly useful in making others from, & would save him the trouble of making one as he has seven or eight Copies of them to make, & as there are some remarks in Mr. Casson’s, he says it may be useful also.  Mr Heron, Mr Surtees & he having had a meeting about the above business, I believe the above Plans are in the large Bookcase which you have the key of, if not, please to inform me where, & I can get them for him.

      Mr Purvis just now called, who desires to know if you have had any answer from Mr Cockshut. There has been no enquiries at the Office for Lead &c. I called at Mr Hall’s he is in the country & they cannot tell when you may have the hay ‘till he comes home tomorrow, but they have plenty .  Your hay is fit for stacking, there is nothing doing to it today – There has been nothing wanted at your own house since you left it. –

      I am Sir  Your Most Obedient Hble. Servt.

      Thomas Crawhall     

Wm. Forster’s Wife died this Morning at the Office

[addressed to:] J E Blackett, Old Gate, Morpeth
