	We have received your Favour of the 26th Inst. With a Tickett for 40 Barrels of Litharge the Price you mention £18.10 we hope you will not charge, as we did not expect you would make it so high and we actually sold 20 Barrels at the same Price delivered on board a Ship for Hull.

	The Price we bought 1400 pieces of Lead at lately was £17.10 we therefore hope you will charge the Litharge at no more than 18£ p Ton and which we leave to yourself.

		We are, Sir, Your most hble Serv
