At a General Meeting of the Commissioners of Greenwich Hospital which was held at the Admiralty Office on Thursday the 26th of May 1768. The Court approved of the Directors proceedings with respect to the Building of the Smelt Mill and Refinery & of their Proposals to Smelt and Refine the Dues of Lead Ore, on the Hospitals Account; and authorised them to appoint the proper Agents and Workmen, with the Salaries and Allowances proposed or such others as shall be judged reasonable; and to do whatever else may be proposed necessary to carry on that Undertaking with Spirit and Advantage. Copy Postscript of Mr Ibbetsons Letter of 26th May 1768 If it will be attended with any inconvenience to wait till after the next Meeting of the Directors, I think you may with safety (under the Gen Court Minute) engage with the Persons you have recommended for Agents, & also with Smelters etc etc as I will venture to say, tho' it is left in a general manner to them, that they will make no alteration in what you have proposed. J.I.
