Finlay Hodgson & Co	London					Dec 12th 1833


      I am favoured with your letter of the 9th and 10th inst advising the Payment of £1000 to Mr B[eaumont]s credit at Glyns & Co on account of Bills rec[eived] from Cox Payser & Co.

      I am glad you have effected a Sale to Locke & Co and have induced them to take one half of the ref[ine]d Lead of the Ordinary quality. I fear you will not be able to make your Sales generally in this proportion but it is very desireable when ever it can be done. I shall give Mr J Crawhall, Mr Keys agent here – an order for 3000 P[iece]s Ordinary Refined Lead today and he may ship any part of it immediately. I go on Monday to the Mines with the subsistence Money and will bring down a correct Statement of the Stock at each mill. It will be inconsiderable, not exceeding in the whole 1500 or 2000 Pieces exclusive of <of make> Lead at Allen and Fallerfield Mill and of which there is but a sufficient quantity to carry on the Refinery Furnaces at these places.


P.S. Interest Book and Book of Balances to be sent.

The Dukesfield Smelters and Carriers Project aimed to celebrate and discover the heritage of the Dukesfield Arches & lead carriers' routes between Blaydon and the lead mines of Allendale and Weardale. A two year community project, it was led by the Friends of the North Pennines in partnership with Hexhamshire and Slaley Parish Councils and the active support of Allendale Estates. It was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the generous support of other sponsors. Friends of the North Pennines: Charity No:1137467
