   No.  12 Budge Row  London  

Gentlemen      I have received a Letter from your Agent Mr Brandram about sending you 20 Casks of Litharge, which I suppose has proceeded from some Mistake for I never concern myself in Shipping either Lead or Litharge: looking upon it as inconsistent to be both buyer and seller.  I sell them to Merchants in this Town, without further Trouble or Risk; and the principals that deal in these articles are Mr Jonan. Sorsbie, Willm. Peareth Esqr., Ralph Carr Esqr. and Co, Mr Wm. Nesbitt & Co., Messrs. Mosley and Airey, Thos. Airey Esqr. Matt. Waters Esqr Etc.  the present price is £12. 15s. 0d per Ton but all that I can make for Six Weeks is contracted for.  

               I am etc    HR
