I have just now seen Mr M. Hewitson, who desired me to acquaint you that he would take 5,000 ps. Lead on the same conditions as Messrs Walker’s Maltby & Co. (Viz) ½ Refd. with the usual quantity of Slag Lead @ £14 ½ P For. to be paid for in Bills due in Six Months, also if you wish he will take 500 ps. Slag Lead at the same time.

      Thomas Crawhall
