To Mr John Salter. Farnacres 18th June 1770 Dear Sir Since receiving your Letter of 26th May,for which we are much obliged to you, we have made Enquiry what Quantity of Bone Ashes will be wanted this year and find One Hundred Casks will do; you will therefore be so good as Order that Quantity. If they arrive at any Time before the latter end of October, it will Answer the End, but we shall like to receive the first Fifty Casks rather sooner. We are with best respects Dear Sir your much Obliged & most Hble Servts Walton & Smeaton PS. We lately applied to our Friend Mr Holmes in the Strand, to get us a Beam for Weighing one Tun good Weight, when you go that way be so kind as give a call as we have desired him to apply to you for a Ship when it is ready. If the last 50 Casks arrive before the end of November it may do.
