To Mr Robert Mylne Esqr.                   			Farnacres 15th January 1780


Dear Sir

       On examining our Mill Accounts I find there are 3753 Pieces of Lead (our best Lead) being equal to 281 Tons 17 Cwt now unsold and as we are going on making more you may have that Quantity  or any other you please not exceeding 5000 Pieces all delivered in London River by the Month of April or May & we can begin the delivery when you please; but it will be very necessary that we shd  have as early intelligence as possible of the real Quantity you will want or otherwise we shall not know how to regulate our Sales.     I am

       Dear Sir Yours etc

       NW Junr

PS. The sooner we hear from abt the Lead the better as not only on Acct of Sales but the Shipping of it, as few Ships will take that kind of Commodity.
