Messrs Finlay Hodgson & Co	London

I am favoured with your letter of 11th inst advising the receipt of £1542-14 from Mr W[ilia]m Parker and payment of the same to Mr B[eaumon]ts credit at Glyn & Co. On the <annexed> sheet I send you a statement of our stock of Lead at the Blaydon and the Mills by which you will see that there is a considerable deficiency to meet our present sales. There will however be little difficulty in effecting it before the purchasers require the delivery. I shall continue to send you a weekly statement of stock at Blaydon, which will be a guide to you for all future sales. As the Lead now comes in rapidly from the Mills, I consider the Blaydon return will give you all the information required to regulate your sale; connecting with it Mr P (Pattinson?) report of the prospective produce of the Mills for the next year. You may always conclude that the Stock of Lead at the Mills will never exceed one third of a months production. The usual monthly returns from the Mills will be sent but it would be attended with considerable inconvenience to send them oftener. Three of the Bills you rec[eive]d from Cox Payser & Co am[ountin]g to £176-3- would fall due before the £1000 last advised of but which you don’t notice   
Letter undated, date assumed from sequence

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
