To Mssrs Henry & Jona. Airey.                			Penrith 10th May 1772

Dear Sirs

      We have just received yours and think it will be proper to Sell the 100 Fodders for £14.15 or £14.10 if you cannot get the price you offer it at; but as there may be some designing in circulating the Accounts about the Quantities at the London Marketts and as the price is so greatly lower than last year we should apprehend it adviseable not to sell any more than the above Quantity til the State of the Trade can be better seen into.

      We are Gents your obliged hble Servts
