Alex Raby Esqr  London 					NewCastle  17th June 1795


Sir	I am favoured with your Letter of the 12th Instt wherein you make an offer of your Service in the Disposal of a part of Mr Beaumonts Lead,  It has not been Customary with us to send any part of it to the London Market for sale by Com[m]ission, having been always of Opinion that it was not for the Interest of the Concern to adopt that Measure;  That part of the Lead that is not disposed at this place, is purchased by three Houses of Character in London at a fair Market price.                   I am Sir  Your Most Obed[ien]t Servant      J E Blackett
