John Hodgson Esq You are quite correct in your statement of the quantity of Lead to be made by 14th March 1834 if Mr P[attinson] is correct and which I have no reason to doubt. You may also add 1000 Pieces of selected Ref[ine]d ch/w we supposed purchased by Mr Key. It is somewhat singular that Mr P[attinson] sh[oul]d state to you that he has no particular wish to visit the <Spe..sh> Mines – when he proposed it to me himself. I cannot tell how his partiality to Rookhope arises unless it is that this Agent <Mr Steel> the Agent is more tractable than the other Mill Agents. I shall request him to give us a correct statement of the expence and advantage of his new Process over the older and <….> to him that he may provide to a sufficient extent to give it a fair trial at Blaydon. I trust our Common Lead will carry us thro[ugh] our Ref[ine]d if you sell in the ususl proportions of half common half Ref[ine]d. BJ
