To Mr Newham Nicholson. Farnacres. 23rd April 1770 Mr Nicholson I would have you see some of the Carriers this day as by Accident and you may let them know that we did want a small Quantity of Lead brought down with all Expedition as we had promised it but that if they should disappoint us in the delivery it will not be any inconvenience to us further than that as we should be always glad to Oblige our Customers, when we can, and their Sterness at present will entirely prevent our obliging them we cannot think our Carriers Behaviour at all proper. And you may add that we are in no hurry about the Lead coming in except that small Quantity and that you are satisfied we will not make any alteration in the price. I am for Self and Mr Smeaton Your most Hble Servt. Nich. Walton Junr PS. Pray make Enquiry about the lost Pig of Lead, it may possibly cast up some time this Season.
