Mr Isaac Hunter Dukesfield                                                             NCastle    Mar 19th 1796


Dear Sir	As we are intirely out of Com[m]on Lead and are now receiving Orders for the Baltic etc on which account Mr Blackett desires that you’ll endeavour to get the Lead on the Hexham Road down as soon as possible, as he is unwilling to lose the Orders for Exportation.  There is as much Refineable Lead at Blaydon as will supply the Refinery for a Month it will therefore be necessary to have some of the Rookhope Lead down by the time the other is wrought up.                                  I am yours etc      J.S
