Messrs Cox Poyser & Co Derby

I am favored with your Letter of the 21st Inst covering four Bills value £244-10-6 which Balances your Account for Lead to this period. – The difference of 5/pfo[the]r shall not on this occasion prevent us dealing, &  therefore  I accept your offer of £23-5-.. pfo[the]r for 2000ps Refined and £22.5… for 1000 ps Common Lead; but it will be more convenient to us if you can equalize the quantities by taking 1500 ps of each or 2000 of the former and 2000 of the latter. – a Bill at 1Mo[nth] on London being remitted in course of Post will entitle you to the discount of 2 ½ pCent on the amount purchased & am etc  MM
