Sir	Mr Blackett will be much obliged by your informing him if you have taken any steps in Order to ascertain the Copyhold Boundary of Harehope Gill Lead Mine.  We are informed that the Mine still continues Rich & as the Price of Lead has of late considerably advanced it becomes at matter of greater Moment to Col Beaumont to lose any part of the Copyhold Mines, Leased under the Ld Bp of Durham.  Mr Emerson of Newhouse informs me that he hears that the Gentn who keeps the Copyhold Court wonders that he has not been apply’d to about the Boundary of this Mine.  Hoping to hear from you soon on this business I remain

                                                                                            Sir Yours etc  J.Straker
