Mr Fishwick                                                                                      Newcastle  29th Sep 1795

Sir	I received your favour & observe what you say as to the quantity of Lead that we can supply for your Works exclusive of the sale for the four London Houses; in a Week or ten days I shall be able to judge what quantity of Lead I shall have it in my power to make an offer of to the latter, it will not exceed 20,000 p[iece]s of which three parts will be Com[m]on & One part Refined.

	I can not engage to furnish a regular Monthly supply for your Works as formerly, but you may have 4 or 5000 p[iece]s in the above proportions.  The quantity of Refined Lead & Litharge sold is not compleated, I expect that it will this week when you shall hear from me

                                                                   I am Sir  Your Most Obed[ien]t Servant

Messrs Walkers Fishwick & Co                                                      John E Blackett
