J. Bourdelain Esqr – London

I am favored with your Letter of the 28th instant; and in reply inform you that my price for Lead at the Wharf is £24 pfo[othe]r of 21 Cwt, six months credit from the day of purchase. - I beg to add that it is not the custom of this Office to ship Lead, which is done by the person on the spot, appointed by the Purchaser for that purpose; but having an establishment at No 8 Tooley Street for the Sale of WB Lead I beg to refer you to Mr Hopkins there, should you be inclined to purchase and prefer transacting the business in London. – French Vessels seldom arrive at this port and therefore am unable to state any regular rate of freight, by them, to France; but when the opportunity does occur, I understand it is lower than by an English Vessel

	I am etc 	MM
