Mr John Ross Glasgow. 

I am favored with your Letter of the 25 Instant. The price of WB Litharge at present is £24 pTon at the Wharf and six months Credit; or 3 p[er]C[en]t discount for money or Bankers Bill on London at 40 days date. I beg to observe that this Office does not Ship any Orders that may be given for Lead or Litharge by a non-Resident; the practice in such cases being for the purchaser to employ a person here, to perform that business. – As I have not the pleasure of knowing you, if you think it proper to remit me a Banker’s Bill for nearly the amount of <15> Casks (about 90 Cwt) of Litharge, it shall be immediately delivered to your Order. 

      I am etc MM
