To Mr Wm Corbett Esq.


	We reced. yours  of the 27th Aug last & will take care of your commissions; but at present it is not a proper time to buy oates for you & butter is extraordinary dear, not under 28s or 29s per firkin we are in hopes it may be Cheaper, but if it is not we would be glad to know if we should buy; Oates will be low, so that till about Xmas we don’t propose to buy. The Crop here is a most extraordinary one of all Grain and the finest Harvest that ever was known wch is a great Blessing to the Country, wch before was in great distress. You may depend upon our taking the best opportunity that we can of buying for you the quantity of oates you desire & when we receive yours in answer to this in relation to the Butter, we will with pleasure execute that commission as we will at all times doe every one that comes from you to Sir Yours &c

      Walton & Boag
