In answer to your application of this morning the present price of Ref[ined] Lead is £36 per F[odder] & of Comm[on] £35 @ 6 Mo[nths] Credit, but at present I can not sell the quantity of Ref[ined] Lead you mention without an equal q[uantit]y of Comm[on] Lead. I further beg leave to observe that it is the custom of this Office that when Lead is bought on Commission the purchaser declares his principle.

				I am Sir etc 		CB
