To Jno Bacon Esq		9 June 1730 

Sr, I have rec’d your Lre of the 27 ult & agreeable thereto have sent to Bollyhope Mill for a trial of the Lead, wch Mr Dalton tells me is pretty near the same in goodness wth the last parcel wee bought of you. When you consider how hard a Bargain the last was, the fall of Leda since the last year near 20s. a Fothr the present small demand & that it stills seems to be a falling Comodity I doubt not but you will think £17 10s 0d a Fother as much as ought at this time to be given & I realy believe no person will venture to give more, if you accept of this, please to order the lead to Blaydon as soon as possible & favour me wth an answer per first opportunity. I have pd Jos Peart money to make the partnership pay to the 23 May last & am	& c	JR
