Sr 							22 July 1714

I perceive by yors of the 20th, that you want 300 pieces of Lead, the reason why Mr Wilkinson Sold Sr John Lambert & my Nephews Lead soe Cheap was because he took a very considerable quantity together, which came to Severall 1000 £ & at that time they had occasion for a great sume of money to pay the work people, otherwise to my knowledge, he would not have sold, any small parcel at that price, however what you have occasion for – may have it for £8 17s 6d, I doe not know what number of pieces I have in the Cellar, but at Newburn I have a small quantity, soe you may speak to the free porter James Clark to order the Newburn wherryman to bring down what wants in the Cellar to make up yor quantity

      I am Sr Yor most Humble Servt


For Mr Nicholas Fenwick & Company 

Merchts  in newcastle
