Messrs Paris, McCausland & Co

I was favoured in course with your Letter of the 25th Ult. and the Triad having proceeded on her voyage, as mentioned in a former Letter, the alteration you required in her Bill of Lading, became impracticable. I have now the pleasure of enclosing Bill Lading of 900 pieces pFortitude, to clear this day and proceed to Sea. I leave to you to advise your House at St Petersburg, having only sent under cover, by the Captain a duplicate of the Bill Lading. The remainder of the 200 Tons of Lead is shipping, and on being completed, the amount of each shipment and charges will be transmitted to you. No Vessel having offered going up to Petersburgh Tower and if there had, I am informed a much greater freight must have been paid, than to Cronstadt. You will please give directions that every despatch be given to unloading the vessels on arrival & am etc 		MM
