	I could not with Propriety send you the Bills requested by your Favour of last Week until I heard from Mr Maltby as he was displeased with my having paid you a Month too soon for the 5000 Pieces Lead sold near that Length of Time after the purchase of 10,000 Pieces was made.

	I have a Letter from him this Day and he says the Months previous payment made you for the above must now be allowed and which being reasonable I hope you will accede to and in that Case I shall send you the Bills accordingly.

	I am for Co & Self

	   Sir your most hble Servt
