Dr Sir

I have sold Dr Hall 5000ps Lead at £12 p Fother; one half refined & 500 ps Slag at £11.15s.0d a Fother which is above the Stockton Market & I wish I could sell a larger Parcel at the same Price.  I shall let the Gardens Stables etc for the best Rent I can get & advise you of it.  In the joint Purchase that Mr Hedley & I made of you it was necessary that it should be in the Name of a Person in Trust for us which is the Reason for Mr Mosleys Name being made use of.  Inclosed I send you two Bills as above amounting to £500 the Receipt of which you will please to acknowledge that it may be filed with the Receipts.
