Mr I Hunter Dukesfield                                                           Newcastle   16th  April  1799

Mr I Hunter               I received your letter with the Piece of Silver weight 943 Ounces.

I am surprized and much disappointed at not having received the Pay Bill for Dukesfields.  Your delay in sending it puts us to great inconvenience & I have been under the Necessity of postponing the Payment of the several Tradesmen solely on that Account, & in case of its not coming to hand in two or three days I shall be obliged to put it off till after the Pay for which they may thank you.  I have had the other Pay Bills a considerable Time.  

I am Sir Your Humble Servt. John E Blackett
