Dear Sir

       The Silver Trade is now so dull at Newcastle that we can sell none almost and are only offered 5s 10 1/2d P Ounce payable one or two Months after delivery.  Shall be much obliged by your acquainting us with the present price in London & whether you think it would be worth your while to have a piece sent you at the price there (or at what price) which weighs 651 Ounces. We have hoped to hear from you for some time past.   We are with best regards to you and yours

       Dear Sir Yours etc

      W & S
