Isaac Wilkinson Esq  Chesterfield



      In Compliance with your request I have sent you by the Gainbrough Packet Capt[ain] I Hanock 100 P[iece]s Slag Lead as by Bill of Parcels annexed. Our Terms of Credit is 6 Months, but if you wish to Remit by Bill on London at a Month you’ll please to deduct 3 Per cent Disc[ount].

	I believe you have been misinformed as to a Sale of Lead here at £42. I don’t know of more than £40 having been given, and even at that price we have no buyers of any considerable quantity except the house of <EH & Co> the Stocks here not being near so large at present as I have frequently known them at this Season of the Year. I shall be inclined to stand out for the last price for some time to come.

					I am Sir			CB

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
