Sir	 Mr Blackett desires me to inform you that he is much displeased at your not sending down the Mill Accots to Mr Hunter as usual & likewise that you had set on some Lead Carriers contrary to his direction, but Mr B expects in future that you will attend to the directions given by Mr Hunter the same as you did to his Father _ Mr Bl thinks that as there will be much less Ore smelted at Allenheads Mill than formerly there will be no occasion for you to have an Assistant                       I am etc   J.S
