Messrs Reads & Lucas  Sheffield				Newcastle Sept. 23rd 1805



      My absence from hence for a Week past must plead my apology for not having in due course acknowledged the receipt of your letter of the 11 Inst, covering your D[ra]ft on Campbell & Co of £7 - -12 – 5 which balances your Acc[oun]t with W Beaumont.

	In future I can have no objections to supplying you with part of the Silver produced from the WB Lead, if it should suit your Convenience to make payments to our Bankers in London at the expiration of One Month after delivery. Your reply to this will much oblige.

							Sirs etc		CB
