Messrs Isaac & Jno Wilkinson Chesterfield 			Newcastle  30th Septr 1795


Gentlemen	I am much obliged to you for your favour of the 5th Instt which I delayed answering in expectation of having it in my power of advising you of a Sale of Lead;  I have not yet compleated it but in a few days I am in hopes that I shall succeed in obtaining £17-10s per Fo[dde]r for 25,000 p[iece]s; the London Houses are very eager to purchase & the quantities at this Markett will fall considerably short.  When I have made a Sale you shall be advised of the same.   I am respectfully 

                                                     Gentlemen Your Most Obed[ien]t Serv[an]t

Messrs Isaac & Jno Wilkinson                                        J E Blackett
