To Mr Salter.                               			Farnacres 28th March 1775

Dear Sir

       I desire you will be so obliging as bespeak us of Mr Finch 100 Casks of Bone Ashes and desire they may be sent by any of the Newcastle Traders who Ship only Merchants Goods for we find there is a saving at London by their coming in that way rather than by the Colliers in the Cartage and Wharfage and it is more convenient to us in the delivery at Newcastle Quay instead of being delivered at Shields, and even in the Freight little or no difference.  The sooner we receive them the more agreable, but we are not in an absolute hurry.  I am for Mr Smeaton & Self

       Dear Sir Your most hble Servt
