Messrs Isaac & Jno Wilkinson Chesterfield 			NewC.  4 Sept. 1793


Sirs	I have received your favor of the 15th Ult. which I postponed Answering in hopes of having it in my power to give you a more favourable Acct of the State of this Markett for Lead; we have not had any demand and the London Houses unite in their Endeavours to beat down the price, & notwithstanding the Assertions that they have no demand, I am satisfied their Stocks are very small, and that they must soon come to Markett, Messrs Walker & Cos House purchased 11 or 1200 p[iece]s of Com[m]on Lead & Slag at £16-10 per Fo[dde]r but I hope no more will be sold so low, the quantity at Markett is not large, and will fall short of former Years.

	Messrs Wheeldon Webster & Wheeldon have been very backward in their payment for some Litharge they purchas’d, I have drawn a Bill on them for the Amo[un]t which I take the liberty of inclosing to you and request the favour of you to negotiate the same and when paid to remit a Bill on London for the Amount after deducting the Charges.          I am etc  J.E.B
