Messrs Paris McCausland & Co London – 

I am duly favored with your Letter of the 18 inst; and it is my desire that you will effect the Insurance on Col Beaumonts proportion of the different shipments of Lead on joint Account to St Petersburgh Your objection to the stipulation in the Bill Lading of the Triad, for the Lead to be discharged in seven days <.> shall be attended to & the clause omitted in future Shipments. There are several marks stampt upon our Lead, but none of them are particularized in the margin of the Bill Lading; and the letter TK on the back of the Bill (but not on the Lead) are the same as on the Docket passed at the Custom House, being the initials of the name of the Officer, Thomas Kaye, who transacted the business. If this is an error, it is committed by the shipping Broker employed on the occasion; and I will be obliged to you for particular directions how to proceed, that we may be right in future. – Another Vessel will take a further quantity of Lead in the course of the ensuing week & I am etc   MM
