To Mr. Newham Nicholson. Farnacres. 21st May 1769

Mr Nicholson

      I believe they will begin delivering Slag Lead at the Mill very soon and I therefore think it necessary to inform you the Refined Slag Lead which I took up it as nearly as good as the the best Refined Lead is marked GHR and the Common Slag Lead GHO3.

             	I am Your Humble Serv.

             		Nich. Walton Junr.
